I bought a glass of milk from Mont Fresh Milk (ร้านมนต์ นมสด) because I wanted to get the glass. It was very interesting. There were faces of a cow with many different emotions and English vocabulary that described below the pictures such as FURIOUS, EMBARRASSED, IN LOVE, and so on. I could count 20 words on the glass with pictures that helped explain the meanings. I really liked it.
Here are the new vocabulary that I learned from the Mont Fresh Milk's glass.
Brooding (adj.) thinking for a long time about things that make you sad, worried or angry
Example: He stood there in the corner of the room, a dark, brooding presence.
Content (adj.) pleased with your situation and not hoping for change or improvement
Example: He seems fairly content with his life.
Sneering (adj.) rude and not showing respect
Example: I don't like that superior, sneering tone of his.

I took the subway to Sukhumvit and I noticed the word handrail used to describe the hand of the escalator. I know that this word is pretty easy to remember, but I usually forget when I have to use it.

Here was my horoscope:
"Don't take the whole burden of responsibility for something on your shoulders, or you'll find that you're weighed down by a heavy load of resentment."
Resentment is being angry about and dislike being forced to accept something or someone annoying.
Example: He feels deep resentment towards his parents for his miserable childhood.
