    There are lots of English words different from the ones we knew when we were in school. When I went to London, it was a big surprise for me. Goodluck on the test!

    Goodluck on the tests (and future exams!) 🙂 … I didn’t know that terraces for british people means bleachers for americans (and us FIlipinos). Ang terrace sa ato-a kay balcony sa second floor di ba? hehehe, bleacers diay ra… And I like the term for eggplant- aubergine. Sounds so classy when in fact it’s just the good old talong (I like fried eggplants with eggs in the morning).
