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 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.
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.

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.
