Gnomes Alert!

13 Mar

The box of Meranti is proving to be very fun and challenging. There are so many pieces and sizes to pick and choose. Soon after the flat head Citizen and Gnome, I immediately started on the glued two piece to carve another Giant Gnome. And in tandem another single piece Gnome, albeit smaller and shorter.

The Gnome population suddenly is booming! Maybe they should have their own hamlet instead of crowding Gigglesville.

Gnomie-wood? Hahaha….

Studying for the Exams

3 Jul

Exams are the bane of every child and student, young and old. I remember my silly antics when I had two months left before the BIG exam. Desperate, I would place an open book on my head or in my face, with high hopes that gravity and osmosis will help me suck up all that mathematical solutions that I find so difficult to master, while music would blare loudly in the background.

Luckily both M1 and M2 differs from me on this studying technique, although M1 did try this once and aced one of her papers! (How come it didn’t work for me?!)

The only similarity is the music part, where M1 would have the speaker attached to her iPod Nano while M2 would have her headphones in place. Does music actually promote better memory retention?
