Animal Myths

An Elephant Never Forgets

This expression likely stemmed from the fact that the elephant has the biggest brain of all land animals — and apparently, the bigger the mass, the better the memory. Elephants are able to retain a mental map of their entire home range — we're talking an area the size of Rhode Island! Elephants also travel in packs and when the group gets too big, the eldest daughter breaks off to start her own contingent, yet she never forgets her roots. One researcher witnessed a mother and daughter elephant recognizing each other after 23 years of separation

 Crocodiles Are Crybabies

Terence Trent D'arby sang about crocodile tears in his hit song "Wishing Well," but the phrase that implies expressing fake emotion actually comes from an ancient fable that crocodiles weep while both luring and killing their prey. In reality, crocodiles can't chew, so they are forced to rip their food into chunks and swallow them whole. As luck would have it, the glands that keep their eyes moist are right near their throats, so their eating habits actually force tears into their eyes

March Hares Are Mad

The expression "Mad as a March Hare" may be foreign to many, except for those who spent a lot of time hobnobbing during the 1500s when the saying first came into fashion. Back then, "mad" meant crazy or wild, and this could certainly be used to describe the behavior that was commonly exhibited by the normally shy and quiet hare during the spring mating season (which in Europe primarily meant the month of March). Their odd conduct included boxing with potential paramours, but contrary to early belief, it was the female throwing the one-two punch

Groundhogs Can Predict the Arrival of Spring

It's the only mammal to have its own day named after it and as legend goes, every Feb. 2, the groundhog emerges from hibernation. If it sees its shadow, six more weeks of winter lie ahead, and if not, spring is on the way! The most famous groundhog of all is Punxsutawney Phil, named in honor of his hometown in Pennsylvania where he acts as the spokesperson for all groundhogs. So how much stock should you put in his predictions? In reality, groundhogs prepare for six months of hibernation by eating up to one-third of their weight on daily basis. When they emerge, they actually do respond to changes in light and temperature, two factors that play a part in determining the forecast

Birth Order Trait

Before we start mumbling about this topic. We just want to let you know that one of us is an only child in the family and the other one is a middle child..! let's keep this as a huh? so let's check what theory says about the personality of every birth trait in a siblings! :)

First Middle Last Only
Natural Leader Flexible Risk-taker Close to parents
High Achiever Easy-going Outgoing Self-control
Organized Social Creative Leader
On-time Peacemakers Self-centered Mature
Know-it-all Independent Financially irresponsible Dependable
Bossy Secretive Competitive Demanding
Responsible May feel life is unfair Bored easily Unforgiving
Adult-pleaser Strong negotiator Likes to be pampered Private
Obeys the rules Generous Sense of humor Sensitive

What the "middle-child" says : All of the above are true about me except for the "May feel life is unfair". Actually I'm a responsible person and keep a stronghold position to keep my family intact. The secrets came from my parents actually. They are sporting enough for their children to achieve their own dreams and accordingly to their talents. Well, I was not like this in the first place. During my child time I spent most of my time alone in my room because my siblings conquered the living hall. So I always spent my time drawing pictures and reading comics. However, as time grows on I get along well with my siblings because we are one big happy family :)

What the "only child" says : It's quite true. I'm quite sensitive about certain things and sensitive feelings  can lead to unforgiving thought. However, as I grew old and more mature, I can handle that feeling alone knowing that we live in a big community and sometimes you may not get what you want. Leader? Maybe. haha. Actually I like to lead an organization or anything. I love to be the head or the brain. However I really think that there's more to come from me to be a leader. In other words, I'm learning to be an effective leader. Matured? hahaha. Sometimes I think too far that I thought I'm too old for my age. Honestly speaking I can't find any of my friends to share the same thought with me except for certain people though. I always think that we can enjoy ourselves sometimes but we must always think about our future and why not? the future of Malaysia itself..As an only child I always get what I want from my parents when I was a kid and Alhamdulillah my parents are not pampering me right now. They always taught me the meaning of hardwork and sweat whenever I'm with them. I even get scolded if I'm too lavish in spending. That's why I love them soo much <3 :D

At the end of the day, Family are the ones who shape their own children. Create a nice and open environment in the family and see your children grow to be a great personality. Believe us :)

Do you think we should give monetary incentives to the KP2 students to motivate them to get better grades?


What is KP2..? KP2 is a short form of 'Kedudukan Percubaan' when students obtained a gpa of below 2.00 and KP2 means that students get a gpa of below 2.00 for 2 successive semesters. The question now is whether we should give incentives to the KP2 students or not?

The answer is a big NO. This is because merit should be the main criteria in an institution. Students must be trained to work harder to get something out of their results. This will only benefit the students itself as it will train the students the meaning of hardship and perseverance. As a result of this, students will be able to cope with the real world when their studies are over. 

Besides that, scholarship in Malaysia and MICET mainly is limited and it must be given to the deserving only. To be frank we've never came across an educational institution giving incentives to those who obtained bad results. There are alternatives other than giving incentives such as give extra motivation for this sets of students and most of all give extra attention to the students. Lecturers are meant to help students but if students themselves don't even care to help themselves, why should we give incentives to the students? This will only lead to negligent among the students.

Furthermore, KP2 students should not look at their results and moan about it thus they should take that as a motivation to work harder. Students should aware that without 'sweat' they would never get a good results. Don't make excuses such as you are a sportsmen or whatever. Divide time accordingly to your needs. Allah gives us brain to think and act. Not think and do nothing. Spent less time on imagining things and start your own act to study! There are many students who are good in sports and at the same time in their studies too. Learn from them and don't hope for miracles to happen. You build your own future!

As a conclusion, students should be aware that KP2 status is not something to demoralize them. Think positive. The real world is much more tougher in University. If students can't hold it any longer in the institution, the future of Malaysia looks bleak because we need youth to lead our country .Go on and achieve your dreams all by yourself and don't think of getting an extra incentives just because you are a KP2 students :D

ps : Failing is not the the end of the world. Failing means that it's a start of something new and hopefully big! the secret? Think POSITIVE :)

Old wives 'tales

Pick up your food within five second of dropping it and it'll be safe be eat

Microbiologists at clermson University,South Carolina,tested this.They found that bacteria , like salmonelia ,can survive for weeks on carpet , wood and tiles ,and contaminates food within second of contact.

Reading in the dark ruins your eyesight

Reading in the dark can make your eyes tired , but won't damage them as it causes no permenent changes to your eyes'structure.You might get eye strain , but this goes away when you turn up the lights.

You lose most of your body heat through you head

An idea based on the sloppiest of logic - 1950s the US military exposed volunteers in survival suits to bitter conditions.The men lost most heat through their heads,but only because this was only the exposed part of their bodies.The head is no more vulnerable than the rest body.That said , you still lose heat through it , so it makes sense to wear a hat on chill day.The truth is , you lose the same amount of heat through every part of your body.Anything that's exposed will cause a drop in your core body temperature.

In Conjunction With Chinese New Year Holiday..Happy Holiday you ollss :D

Ooh you're a holiday, such a holiday
Ooh you're a holiday, such a holiday

It's something I thinks worthwhile
If the puppet makes you smile
If not then you're throwing stones
Throwing stones, throwing stones

Ooh it's a funny game
Don't believe that it's all the same
Can't think what I've just said
Put the soft pillow on my head

Millions of eyes can see
Yet why am I so blind?
When the someone else is me
It's unkind, it's unkind

De de de de de de de
De de de de de de
De de de de de de de
De de de de de de

Yet millions of eyes can see
Yet why am I so blind?
When the someone else is me
It's unkind, it's unkind

Ooh you're a holiday, every day, such a holiday
Now it's my turn to say and I say you're a holiday

It's something I think's worthwhile
If the puppet makes you smile
If now then you're throwing stones
Throwing stones, throwing stones

De de de de de de de
De de de de de de
De de de de de de de
