O-No! Ma-To-Po-ei-a!

remember that word?

Onomatopoeia (occasionally spelled onomateopoeia or onomatopœia, from Greek ονοματοποιία) is a word or a grouping of words that imitates the sound it is describing, suggesting its source object, such as "click," "clang," "buzz," or animal noises such as "oink", "quack", "flap", "slurp", or "meow". The word is a synthesis of the Greek words όνομα (onoma, = "name") and ποιέω (poieō, = "I make" or "I do") thus it essentially means "name creation", although it makes more sense combining "name" and "I do", meaning it is named (& spelled) as it sounds (e.g. quack, bang, etc.).

examples: woof woof, ribbet ribbet,miāo (喵), bang. [yes, apparently, there's chinese onomatopoeias, as well as German, Arabic, and other foreign languages.]

Just something random for the blog.

HELLO :):):)

Ok... for all of you who are out there, who need some inspiration, check this cool proverb out

Got it from a movie. Try to guess where it is from

"When the storm breaks, every man acts in accordance with his own nature.
Some a dumb with terror
Some flee, some hide
and some......
Spread their wings like eagles and soar on the wind"

Hope this helps :)

Oh, you lost your schedule?

Well, salvation is here, in the form of a compressed JPEG of a scan of a mistreated, crumpled-up A4 standard-sized, 80gsm, 210x297mm paper with some form of [i believe] black laser printing.

to keep it short: here.

Words of [erm...] wisdom.


In short: For results, you need time, sacrifice, and effort [sometimes even suffering].

So, Let's buck up for the Mid-year, and ultimately, the 'O's!

[btw, for those who want to widen their CL vocabulary, I found a blog that may help.]

[p.s.: sorry for the Chinese post. Just trying to do some last-night mugging before my HCL paper tomorrow. Application is the best way to learn.]

P.s.s.: Add Math Test Tomorrow!

Something to add to ur study list for this week

Please note there will be a A-maths test on integration this coming Tuesday... sorry for the late notice but i was only informed of it today at 10.21am to be exact! haha

I Can Haz Cheezburger!

If you want to create your own political cartoon, well, unless you're Jasper Yee, I guess you can't.

Oh wait, we're all supposed to be ignorant guys who don't know current affairs!

But whatever the case, if you want to see pictures of adorable cats with hilarious overlaying captions made up of bad English, 1337-speak, and serious typos!

It's a *sarcasm* good */sarcasm* read for just before the exams!

* - HTML brackets. Because I can't code them in using HTML.  Just because I'm too lazy to do that.

Did you say 'Flavour'?

Flavor or flavour (see spelling differences) is the sensory impression of a food or other substance, and is determined mainly by the chemical senses of taste and smell. The "trigeminal senses", which detect chemical irritants in the mouth and throat, may also occasionally determine flavor. The flavor of the food, as such, can be altered with natural or artificial flavorants, which affect these senses.

Flavorant is defined as a substance that gives another substance flavor, altering the characteristics of the solute, causing it to become sweet, sour, tangy, etc.
