I never knew I would say this, but I gotta admit my turtles are really clever.
Everyone knows I have 8 water turtles and 1 South African tortoise. Well last night, as I was having a midnight snack/tea with my parents in the living room, one of my turtles , Biggie (Ah Dai) as soon as he saw me sitting down, started patting the water in the tank with his paws. Normally he would just sit on the float with the others and enjoy the heat under the lamp. But last night he was patting so much (the most extreme I'd seen in a while) he l...Read more

Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

Something strange happened over the last few days with me.....

I saw a butterfly appear in front of me on two separate occasions. I don't know why the butterflies appeared, but felt maybe it had something to do with my state of mind at the time.
The first time I was thinking about HK being a such wonderful place filled with many interesting and lovely people (in Causeway Bay area)...Read more
I just read today two stories on the BBC News website that is really upsetting. The first, is that the UK is bringing in American-style metal detection points in schools and the second is that Gaza City near Israel has been plunged into total darkness, because the last power plant there has no more fuel to run the electricity turbines. What is happening to the world around us I ask?
I have been to London schools before, and in my experience in the past, some of the schools in the public domain were certainly not up to ...Read more
According to a report here from Gizmodo.com, users who have bought Apple iPhones but somehow had them 'bricked' or disabled from calling through improper methods have managed to recover their previously blocked phones with the new v1.13 updates. In one instance of success, a guy who was so happy he got back his old phone, he actually cried.
