hi Umi,
I reply to you. But I don't know what happen to it.It wasn't display.

Dear Kalpana,
It's ok. Don't worry! It takes sometimes for them to publish our comments because of their workload I think as you could imagine how many people around the world visit and send their comments or enquires here, one time my comment appeared on the discussion board after two days I submited it to them. Be patient pls!
Or perhaps, you may have violate the "House Rules" thats why they didn't published your comment. So, next time you want to submit your comment, check beforehand.
Warm regards,
The very best of luck,

I learn lot of new words from your comment.Thank you for that.I'm very happy You're keeping touch with me.You the only one who reply to me.Sorry for making lot of mistakes.
Thank you very much.,

Hello, Kalpana. Had a good day?
Talking about hiking, I think hiking is a long walk especially in a hilly or mountainous countryside while jogging is only run slowly, but both of them are the same kind of excersices. As for me, I prefered hiking more than jogging because it makes my heart going/pumping more than if I'm jogging, especially when I hike at some of the steepest part of the mountain, I feel like I've achieved something rewarding afterwards.
My spare time? On weekday, normally I will do lots of reading of any kind of materials (novels, newspapers, articles [I will bookmarks everything that interest me when I'm reading on the internet, so I've lot of stuff to read everyday because reading is something that I've to do in my daily routine, it's kind like I am addicted to it if I didn't read I felt like something missing for me], also I played my Lumosity games for half an hour daily, excercise for my brain. On weekend, I normally do some kind of activity that I wrote to you sometime ago.
ASAP is an abbreviation or sortened form of "as soon as possible".
Don't say thanks Kalpana, it was nothing.
Warm regards,

PS. See you in the new Series 03 Episodes 15, which just released a few days ago.

i would like the people from my country to be ahead more polite after the revolution
your sincerely
