Are you left-brained or right-brained?

    • 1
      What was your school experience like? People who are left-brained do very well in traditional classrooms. They are good at spelling and grammar and have neat handwriting. They are logical and excel at algebra, though they may struggle with geometry. People who are right-brained often struggle in a traditional classroom setting. They can be easily distracted and are often told they have ADD or are "late bloomers." They are often poor spellers and have sloppy hand-writing. They excel at geometry but struggle with algebra. They excel at the visual arts and usually show talent in drawing and sculpting.

      How do you feel about working in groups? People who are left-brained enjoy working on group projects, but right-brained people usually prefer working on their own.
    • 3
      How do you organize things? Left-brained people tend to make written lists. They will instinctively begin to take notes when attending a lecture. Right-brained people rely on their visual memory and "see" their list in their mind's eye. They are not inclined to taking notes because they feel it would distract them from remembering.
    • 4
      How do you feel about new ideas and challenges? Left-brained people can be uncomfortable with change and prefer to stick to routine. They like things that are familiar and predictable. Right-brained people welcome change and will do things like rearranging their furniture frequently.
    • 5
      Are you good at following directions? Left-brained people are good at following directions. Right-brained people are not, and often prefer to figure things out for themselves. When assembling a project, left-brained people will read the instruction sheet before starting the assembling. Right-brained people are more likely to take a quick look at the picture on the box, then get out the parts and figure out how they go together.
    • 6
      How do you feel about rules? Left-brained people love to make and follow rules. They perform well in management jobs. Right-brained people often dislike rules and prefer activities where they can make up their own guidelines.
    • 7
      Are you creative? Left-brained people tend not to be imaginative. Right-brained people are more likely to be highly imaginative and often end up in careers that require creativity.
    • 8
      Do you have trouble remembering names? Left-brained people are very good at remembering names, but may have trouble remembering faces. Right-brained people are excellent at remembering faces buy may have trouble with names.

Alto Saxophone

The alto saxophone is a member of the saxophone family of woodwind instruments invented by Belgian instrument designer Adolphe Sax in 1841. It is smaller than the tenor but larger than the soprano, and is the type most used in classical compositions. The alto and tenor are the most common types of saxophone.

Mnemonics are devices to help us remember.

Where there is something to remember, mnemonics can be put to use. You will find them in every discipline from music, medicine, biology, and electronics to spelling, physics, geography, and remembering telephone numbers!
There are mnemonic methods that can dramatically improve your memory. Do you find you forget people's names? Would you like to remember telephone numbers better? Or perhaps you simply want to remember more of what you read?

My home-cooked noodles

 Although the Chinese, Arabs, and Italians have all claimed to have been the first to create noodles, the first written account of noodles dates from the Chinese East Han Dynasty, between AD 25 and 220. During the Chinese Song Dynasty (960–1279) noodle shops were very popular in the cities, and remained open all night.

Koala Bear

Koala is the only mammal, other than the Greater Glider and Ringtail Possum, which can survive on a diet of eucalyptus leaves.

Koala seldom drinks water obtaining it from the eucalyptus leaves, which are 50% consisting of water. Although, they can drink water if due to drought the leaves water content is reduced.

Koalas consume eucalyptus leaves and bark from 12 different eucalyptus tree species. They also consume mistletoe and box leaves.

Koala in Victoria would have different diet from koala in Queensland as different species of eucalypts grow in different parts of Australia.

Sometimes koalas eat leaves from other trees such as wattle tree, tea tree, paperbark tree.
Each koala eats approximately 200 to 500 grams of leaves per day. 

Koalas have a slow metabolic rate due to their high-fiber, low nutrient diet. Because they store little or no fat, koalas must adopt strategies that conserve energy. Sleeping is one of them.

Koalas sleep for up to 16 hours per day in order to conserve energy.

A very slow metabolic rate optimizes its energy requirements and allows koalas to retain food within their digestive system for a relatively long period of time, maximizing the amount of extracted energy.

Reflection of the mosque

A mosque is a place of worship for followers of Islam. A common feature in mosques is the minaret, the tall, slender tower that usually is situated at one of the corners of the mosque structure. The top of the minaret is always the highest point in mosques that have one, and often the highest point in the immediate area.


I visited Sam Poh Tong last Nov and the sky was so cloudy.

See how a simple string could form a word.

Can you guess the word on this key chain?

Red Luggage

Is there such a word ‘luggages’, or is it just ‘luggage’ even if we have more than one piece of it?

‘Luggage’ is a collective noun that refers to all the stuff you’re carrying with you on your trip. So, be it one bag or a few, it’s all called ‘luggage’.

And yes there is such a word as ‘luggages’, even though it might seem redundant. Imagine that there are two groups of tourists in the hotel lobby waiting for their buses to the airport. You’d presumably have two separate areas where their luggages (that belong to either group) are all ready to be loaded onto the buses.
