Treasure hunt

About 2 weeks ago, I was doing a spring cleaning for my room. I rearranged my stuff and pack some unused items into plastics/ box. Then, I found a heavy bag. I tried to empty out all the items from my bag and it was still very heavy. I wonder why? I heard some 'cling-ing' sound from the bag. However, there's nothing inside. *Blur*

After that, I was checking if there's any hole in the bag because some stuff like coins might felt into the hole and got into the second layer of the bag. First checking, no hole was found... Second checking, no hole was found too!!! =( When it come to the third checking... true enough, I found a small hole in the side pocket!

Finally, I found a hole in my bag!!!

Then, I tried to dig into my bag... *dig dig dig* The hole used to be very tiny. After I dug into it, it became bigger and bigger. But, guess what?!!?!?! I found treasures inside my bag!!! check out the picture below...

The items found include:
  1. My long lost watch... I have bought a new watch a week before I discovered this! Grrr..... Should have discover this earlier.... =(
  2. A sweet that I got from a Korean BBQ Restaurant in Ampang... Few months ago after helping out in a company roadshow
  3. My long lost necklace... A meaningful necklace to me =)
  4. Last but not least, some coins worth RM3.95!!!! These are the main contributor of the heavy weight... I am now RM3.95 richer...
I have no idea why I didnt know about the hole in my bag earlier... No wonder it was always heavy. =p

The Da Vinci Code

Few months ago, I borrowed "The Da Vinci Code" novel by Dan Brown from my brother's university library. It took me ages to read the book... In the end, I didn't even manage to finish reading it before the due date. The next thing I knew was, my dad bought us the DVD! Hahah! Not only "The Da Vinci Code", he bought "Angels and Demons" too!!

Yesterday, I finally found some time to sit in front of the tv and watch it. Well, not to say I am too busy to watch tv on normal days. I do spend a lot of hours in front of tv daily. However, most of the time we have to tune into the channels that my grandmother likes --> Astro Walaitoi, Channel 311. LOL!

Eventhough this is a very old movie, which was released in year 2006, I still enjoyed the movie a lot! I amazed with how Professor Langdon cracked the codes and removed the clue from the cryptex before destroying it. He's such a genius!! There's lotsa French conversations in between... Thank god there's English subtitles! Or else, I wont be able to understand besides "bonjour"... XD

Anyway, most of my friends advised me to continue reading the book! They say the book is much much better. I think I will grab the book soon... =)

Gas mask bra among 2009 Ig Nobel Prize winners

Source: Tech.Blorge

This news really caught my attentions... =p I wonder if this invention works for the Asian women who are more conservatives... LOL! And are these bras come in all sort of sizes too?

A bra which turns into two working gas masks is among the achievements to be celebrated at the 19th annual Ig Nobel Prize awards ceremony.

The Nobel Prize is a long-running and well-established ceremony which rewards those who have achieved great feats in the fields of science, literature, and economics. But since 1991 they have been preceded by the Ig Nobel Prize, a parody of the main awards, which endeavor to “first make people laugh, and then make them think.”

According to National Geographic, the ceremony is organized by the scientific humor magazine, the Annals of Improbable Research, and this year were held at Harvard University’s Sanders Theater.

The gas mask bra won the Ig Nobel in public health. Elena Bodnar and colleagues designed a fashionable bra that can be turned into a pair of HEPA-filter gas masks within a matter of seconds. Bodnar designed the gas mask bra after being moved by her experiences as a young Ukrainian medical student helping victims of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

She demonstrated the bra on members of the judging panel, including Nobel laureates Paul Krugman and Wolfgang Ketterle. She said:

It only takes 25 seconds for any woman to use. Five seconds to convert and wear her own mask, and 20 seconds to wonder who the lucky man is to wear the second mask.
