Letters with Ink Heart Recommendation Letter By Antonio Mora G. Alajuela, Poรกs, Carrillos September 9, 2010

To Whom It May Concern,

It is my pleasure to be recommending Huang Ya-Hui (Gina) to you. I have known Gina for three years and I have realized she is a hard worker and quick learner. Gina will be a great good for any company that hires her. She is one of the most innovative and creative person I have ever met. Besides being a great experience to work with, Gina is a takecharge person who is able to present original ideas and develop them completely without ever leaving a work unfinished. Gina not only speaks Spanish fluently and without any interference between her native language, Mandarin, but also she speaks fluent English. In addition, I dare to say that she not only cares for what she does at her work but also in her life.

Indeed, I found her to be consistently pleasing, lovely, and a person who deals with all the assignments imposed to her with a great dedication and a smile. However, Gina is not only able to work on her own; she is also a great group worker and very cooperative at any time. I believe that all the language skills, and plethora of other abilities Gina owns, make her a great asset for your business. She will serve as an example to follow in your corporation. If there are any doubts or questions, do not hesitate in calling me at (506) 8849-9402 and I'll be willing to confirm any information, or answer any questions you might have.

Sincerely,

Antonio Mora Gonzalez

Prince charming was not prepared

A princess was to be found

So princess made her first mistake

Hiding from the world

A first and last movement

Until her prince would come

Made everything fell apart

Eighteen years has passed

Like an earthquake prince escaped

Looking for her absent prince

Home Alone By Antonio Mora G.

When I was a nine-year-old child,

It seemed that it was calling my name.

I used to be alone at my house. Sometimes it really scared me out

It scared me to death

But, of something I have no doubt.

To think that I was being Called by my name

It is that staying with no one else

It was very frightening.

In a two-storey house Feels like a nightmare

I used to feel chills on my bones

That is completely endless

My skin tried to call them down It was impossible

You can hear how the wind

I was like a terrified scarecrow

Touches the front entry

I was in a big lonely house.

It made a sound that wasn`t ok


Heart knows By Isis Rodríguez R.

No one can read my heart

Love is a vulgar thief

But it can be broken very easily

Stealing feelings from everyone else

No one can know how I feel

Just to mix them together again

But acts hurt more than direct attacks

We are forced to recover what we need

Nobody knows what is like

Lovers can be undying trees

To pretend everything is right

Dead on the inside, living the outside

Even just for a while

What is worse than being in love?

I would like to give it a try

Never find it and take in stride Author: Isis M. Rodríguez Rodríguez

Use: this expression is mainly used when someone gives something; however, what has been given was not enough. “About Satanic Possessions” Meaning: “Whatever possible topic” or “surprise topic” Use: you can use this when a professor asks you what is your topic for a free essay or presentation, then you answer with that, and bring whatever you want. “Don`t be a frog!” Meaning: “Mind your own business” or “Don’t be so nosey” Use: use it in a situation when someone is trying to get information from you, and you do not want to give it. “Self-embarrassment!” Meaning: “You just made a fool of yourself” Use: whenever something very embarrassing happens to someone “I cannot believe that you did that!” Meaning: “I want everybody to know what you did!” Use: use this phrase whenever someone does something that you may dislike. As a result, everybody would pay attention to what that person is doing. “Put your things away!” Meaning: “Surprise Quiz” Use: Almost every single Wednesday, and it can also be used when professors want to scare students that are not prepared for a quiz.

I do not know why, but women always love to be complimented about their eyes, try out that one; it will work for sure. Use your imagination; all women like to hear once in a while that you love them because of this and that – the more these and those you have, the better!

Do not ever wait for important dates in order to give her a present; the most appreciated presents are the ones given impromptu. Make every day of her life like Saint Valentine`s day, the details are the most important things a woman expects from us, so if you are very considerate, and once in a while (once or twice per month) you give her a little
