Blogspot.

new blog coming soon. Time for a change. A new me will emerge, stronger than before(:
This blog will soon be used for private posts! (:

(no subject)

I need to do a lot of things. Yep, a lot. Not alot but a lot. Two words. Haha sometimes i really wanna yell at people who type "alot" when it should be "a lot". AHHHHHH. okayokay. i shall continue.

anyway, you need to:

1) Start building up POWERFUL vocab.

haha. Can't afford to be mediocre. Must jiayou for literature.


2) Start believing in myself despite the many battles i face in my life.

Basically, family ties (especially with mum) are rather strained. we just cannot seem to come to an agreement, and its time to stop solely blaming her, and start saying: hey, deborah/flora, its your fault too. But yeh, sometimes, it's just hard to blame yourself. You think you're right. But no, running away from home was never right. No matter how hard anyone is on you, no running away. Solve it, face it. Don't make people worry the whole night for you.
 
"But I did the right thing, running away from home. I did it to salvage my exams. I couldn't study, at least not at home, with the racket/din and the exams a mere two days away. And I was receiving discouragement. It was right, really right."

Nonono. No more reasoning. No more. It's time for you to emerge strong, Deborah. You can hear discouragement, sure. But do not let it get to you. Focus on the Lord.

Dear Father, Lord, let me decrease and you increase. Help me to be strong, Lord. Teach me to hear you more, and show me how to live the way you want me to. In Jesus' name i pray, Amen.

Other stuffs too. but yeh, this is the one that needs most attention.


3) Start working on my Written Report.

Quit stalling already!!!


4) Pack my table!

Gosh my table is flooded with books since post-examinations. I have been organising my files but yeh that's about it. Must get rid of the mountain!


5) Continue to go Gym! (:

No stopping, deb! Get working! After promos is a great time to return to this place, and keep carrying on. No more exempting yourself from gyming sessions just because of your studies! Balance, girl,  BALANCE IS KEY!


6) Continue the pre-Promos spirit!

The one where you're inspired to continue, at a constant pace, BECAUSE YOU KNOW. Four R-papers are waiting for you! Plus one Chinese "A" Level paper. Press on, Press on!!!


7) Continue NOT feelinng stressed!

Tell yourself this is all part and parcel of life. And no, nothing is going to bring you down. Do not over-do! Give yourself time to chillax. (haha, i think you've alr accomplished that. Two movies in two days. you're mad.)


8) Get improving on your Chinese!


Yes, you know it sucks. But whatever, focus on long-term, no short-term here girl, long-term long-term.

Yes. Eight things to do. But, focus on God and you accomplish them all. Therefore, one thing to do, one journey, one legacy(:
Haha tribe motto!





Jiayou woman, you can do this!


you are worthy of all praise,
to you my life i raise,
you are awesome in this place,
mighty God.

/New Insight to Hess's Law.

Chemistry is great fun. I have learnt:

By Hess's Law, ^HA=^HB+^HC.  ^Results = ^God's Grace+Love+Mercy  +  ^Luck, ^H > 0 (endothermic i.e. enters system), where ^Luck = 0

As such, temperature of surroundings become cool and thus surrounding systems seek the warmth or heat and want their reactions to be endothermic as well, and thus follow the above equation.




Dedicated to all Brothers and Sisters in Christ who are facing an obstacle in your life right now:D  Overcome the odds through the Lord. Especially for year twos taking A levels as well as year Ones chionging for promos:)

Daddy, I'm in love... and he looks just like you!

PARIS (AFP) - - Men tend to wind up with life partners who look like their mother, while a woman is lured to a partner who looks like her father, scientists reported on Wednesday.

Heterosexuals are deeply attracted to individuals whose faces are similar to that of their opposite-sex parent, they said, suggesting that this characteristic is rooted in an evolutionary drive.

A team led by Tamas Bereczkei at the University of Pecs in Hungary created a model of facial ratios -- width of jaw, distance between mouth and brow and so on -- comprising 14 facial zones.

They measured 312 Hungarian adults from 52 different families using this method. Each family included a couple, along with two sets of parents.

The researchers found a significant correlation in facial similarities between a woman's mate and her father, and also between a man's partner and his mother.

The team tested the model on faces that were randomly selected from the general population and repeated the experiment with a panel of judges, who also picked out the same pairings from randomly selected groups of photos.

Interestingly, men and women focused on different parts of the face when they home in on a potential mate, they found.

A man's lover and his mother tended to have similar fullness in the lips, width of mouth, as well as length and width of jaw.

But for women, the critical features were the distance between mouth and brow, the height of the face, distance between the eyes and the size of a man's nose.    

HUH. 我爸爸的鼻子有点大。:X

The choices are driven less by psychology and socialisation and more by evolutionary pressures, suggests Bereczkei.

Too much genetic overlap -- as can happen with incest -- is an evolutionary no-no.

But seeking similar genetic traits "may confer individuals with additional adaptive advantages," he wrote.

It could increase the degree to which parents share genes with offspring, enhancing the genetic representation of future generations.

Finding similar partners might also help perpetuate genetic complexes that have evolved to adapt to a particular environment.

There may be an additional bonus, which probably has more to do with happiness than a genetic imperative.

"Human couples who are similar in physical and psychological characteristics are more likely to remain together than dissimilar partners, possibly leading to an increase in fertility," the study concludes.

The research appears in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B. The Royal Society is Britain's de-facto academy of sciences.

Yay I can finally use the computerrrrrr!
Hahaha. Cos on thursday I baked for teachers' day! and then... I was using the oven. And suddenly "BOOM!" Blackout! haha. So the electricity tripped and the computer shut down and the TV couldn't off and the lights were out etc etc. And my mum did sth and then it could all work again, EXCEPT the computer and the oven:X
So my cinnamon apple raisin chocolate cake (which many ppl thought was a brownie but i assure you YUMMY all the same:D:D) was NOT baked. And so very paiseh:X
Had to go ask my neighbour to help me bake for 1 and a half hours. I felt super bad cos i used so much of their electricity! But yeppp.

And then I also incurred my mummy's wrath! Haix. Cos i haven't been baking for a long time, and she's forgotten I grew up so I know how to bake and CLEAN UP PROPERLY w/o leaving a mess. Haha. Well. So i proved to her I could do it. I wiped the tabletops until they were sparkling clean, and I mopped the floor! :)

Oh yeh, once i let mummy taste my cake, she said it was nice. And after awhile she told me, " Deborah, actually mummy doesn't mind if you bake you know. Mummy is very happy you bake, but must know how to clean up, and mummy saw, you cleaned up well."
HAHA THAT MADE ME SUPER HAPPY.

LESSON OF THE DAY: GENEROSITY

I was waiting for the uncle to print stuff, then this maid went to collect her stuff and said she forgot to bring money. o.0
And he just let her take her stuff.

Me: Uncle, 你怎么知道她回还钱给你?
Uncle: 哎哟,做人要放轻松。
Me: 可是,你为什么这么轻易相信别人呢?
Uncle: 小妹啊,你做事不要害怕,要大方一点。

Then,
Me: Uncle, 我要double-sided.
Uncle: 没有double-sided. 只有两面。
Me: 不是,Uncle, 我要double-sided.
Uncle: 没有double-sided. 只有两面。
Me: Huh.

Then come out: it's double-sided,
Uncle: 哈哈!跟你开玩笑啦!
Me: Uncle! 这种事怎么可以开玩笑的!
Uncle: 哈哈!

Uncle: 这份一块七。
Me: 哦。
Uncle: 这份三块八。
Me: 哦。
Uncle: 那么,总共多少呢?
Me:五块五。
Uncle: 错,是五块半。
Me: 五块五不是五块半?
Uncle: 不是。
Me: Uncle, 我的华文不好啦,你别取笑我了!:)
