My LG Washer/Dryer

See my earlier post for background info.

A quick update. A year has passed as I was reminded of it by the last installment. The washer dryer is ... still working in good condition, although usage rate was relatively low at about once to twice per week. Thus, I am happy with it.

Also, a check at Harvey Norman and it is still selling at the same price as they rotate the way it is promoted over the year. Now, it is selling at S$1599 with S$600 HN voucher, thus it is the "same" as S$999 IF one also need to buy something more than S$600 from them.

Saving Cyclists' Life Worldwide

The Road Guardian purpose:

to save lives by helping cyclists avoid risky roadways. There are a lot of wonderful roads to ride around the world and there are some roads that cyclists should avoid because they have problems, danger points, and troublesome histories as experienced by cyclists. This site offers cyclists a process for reporting, marking and sharing those danger points. This information will help cyclists plan their routes for safe experiences. And what's equally exciting is that by making cycling safer for existing cyclists we make cycling more attractive to non-cyclists. When non-cyclists become cyclists they increase the numbers of cyclists on the road and this makes it even safer for all cyclists… just think about what that means.

Education as a science

Do you agree that education is a science? I think so. Then, I think a problem in education of arts subject is the difficulty in finding people who are good in arts yet can also master the science of education.

I was lucky ... to have a British English teacher who likes computer programming during my sec 3 and 4. I always feel that those were the 2 years where I learnt more than 90% of my English, although my English is still quite bad.

Thus, I think it is not a good idea to just find people who are good in a arts subject to teach the subject because typically, when someone is good in arts, he/she is usually quite bad in science.
