Passion Vs Patient

This is so cool.

The other day, I was out buying some things with my other half. We ended in his favourite golf house and buying some stuff.

What a tajuk, i thought. He he..

Anyway, just to add on to our little knowledge today, here are how these two words with such a similar pronounciation yet meaning so differently 🙂
