To Him . To Her

Time is running fast, here we come to the end of 2010... I think most of them will post their new year resolutions in their blogs, but for me, I would write this rather than my resolutions=)

This post is especially for my animal gang, just a little words i wanna tell you all before the arrival of a new year...

To her, the kakatak:

Well, well, the bed is so empty without you, even though i can sleep on a wider bed but i would rather squeeze with you=) You are the one who always need freedom, and now, u got it....Just appreciate what you have now because you will not always get what you want... I hope you will become more independent without me by your side, and i believe you will... Be more hardworking in doing your house chores since i'm not there to do them for you XD I'm looking forward to your Singapore stories, so badly! Lastly, just wanna tell you that, you will find the right one, give yourself some time, this kind of thing cannot be rushed=) don't confuse love & loneliness... love you >.<

To her, the wild boar:

You are the most sensitive one among us. You care about every little thing in your life, including your relationship, friendship or work. You always afraid of being left out, don't you? That's why every time when we are planning or doing something, we will be extra careful, and always think about you, because we afraid that if we do something wrong, you will be angry or unhappy. I do admire you, you know? you are very courageous, you dare to do what ever you want to do, unlike me, always doubt my ability. You always know what you want, and will work very hard to attain your goals. Being straight forward is not a bad thing but you should always care about others feelings. I know you are still searching for a down-to-earth guy, a man who can be trusted and take care of you in the future. Just be patient, you will get one for sure. Anyway, I think you can live without a man XD Don't be too obsess of what other people think about you, live the way you are=) Love you as always :D

To her, the monkey girl:

A blur girl as usual. haha... You are the one who I worry about the most! You do everything seriously but you are always careless. Can you be more careful & don't be blur all the time? Anyway, you are an adventurous one, love to try out new things. I think you have exposed yourself to many different people & different things right? It's great but you must always take care of yourself. Beware of everyone around you, they might harm you for some reasons. Be patient all the time, try to tolerate with everyone around you although sometimes you may unwilling to follow their ways, but of course, not all the time. Last but not least, be more confident in your relationship, you have found a good one now, appreciate him. I know sometimes it's hard to let go something, but you should learn to open up heart & mind, for your own good. Soon, you will be leaving us too, & I'm sure I'll miss you a lot! heart you =>

To him, the rabbit:

You are the one who love to ffk! lol~ I know you have your reason. I'm glad that you have changed a lot, at least you are not as cool as before=) Hanging out with you will always be fun, you'll never fail to make me laugh, & sometimes I wonder, since when you have became a joker?
Honestly, sometimes I do envy of the relationship between you & your gang ( you know who I mean right?) because you seem closer with them rather than us=( But I know this is your freedom of choosing friends, I can't be selfish though. Deep inside my heart, I know you still love & care about our gang after all. Remember, don't always tease or mock other people although sometimes you disagree with them, try to think positively about them. I hope I'll get your wedding card someday, sincerely. Heart you too =D

To him, the donkey:

Can I call you a clubber? haha...may be not... But I do enjoy clubbing with you. Somehow, I think our relationship become estranged after F5, we don't really sit down & talk to each other, may be it's because of we are very busy all the time. Anyway, you are still the best friend of mine=) You are such a supporting friend, no matter what gathering or party it is, you will sure try your best to attend. There were some misunderstanding between us before but it doesn't matter anymore right? You are very forgiving, I appreciate it very much. I'll always remember how you take care of me all the time, thanks bro! erm... I guess you enjoy your single life very much huh? Anyhow, I wish you will get a good girlfriend very soon. Do take care yourself in US.... *hug hug*

To him, the horse:

You may not be reading my blog but I will still write for you anyway. I miss you a lot man! There will be lots of laughters with your presence. A big smile is always on your face, I will be delighted every time I see you... How are you there in China? You have not been calling me for a long time... I'm hoping you to speak with me with fluent mandarin next time you come back. I know you will became a great chinese teacher in the future! Wait for you here... loves :)

best friends, with loves=)

Lee's sisters, always!

* God send you all to beautify my life, the love to you all is like "more than words", it's indescribable in words... Be happy my best friends & sis, I'll always here to pray for you*

There are 6.9 billion people in this world
but only part of them walk in & out of your life
Some may make a strong impression on you
Some may be just a passerby
Who really cares?
Who really loves?

You know it yourself

Don't say you have lost the passion for love,
because you will always be loved.

Birds Do It ... We Do It ... and No One Knows Why

Let me share with you an interesting article =)

Everyone yawns, but no one knows why. We start when we are in the womb, and we do it through old age. Most vertebrate species, even birds and fishes, yawn too, or at least do something that looks very much like it. But its physiological mechanisms, its purpose and what survival value it might have remain a mystery.

There is no shortage of theories — a recent article in the journal Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews outlines many — but a dearth of experimental proof that any of them is correct.

“The lack of experimental evidence is sometimes accompanied by passionate discussion,” said Dr. Adrian G. Guggisberg, the lead author.

Hippocrates proposed in the fourth century B.C. that yawning got rid of “bad air,” and increased “good air” in the brain. The widely held modern view of this theory is that yawning helps increase blood oxygen levels and decrease carbon dioxide.

If this were true, Dr. Guggisberg writes, then people would yawn more when they exercise. And people with lung or heart disease, who often suffer from a lack of oxygen, yawn no more than anyone else.

Researchers have exposed healthy subjects to gas mixtures with high levels of carbon dioxide and found that it does not lead to increased yawning. In fact, there is no study that shows that oxygen levels in the brain are changed one way or the other by yawning.

In other words, observation and experiment suggest that the best way to increase blood oxygen levels is not yawning, but rapid breathing.

There is no question that yawning occurs most frequently before and after sleep, and the subjective feeling of drowsiness accompanies increased yawning. So maybe yawning helps keep us awake.

Researchers tested this hypothesis by inducing yawning in human subjects and then observing brain activity with encephalography as they yawned. The EEG produced no evidence that yawning increased vigilance in the brain or central nervous system.

Some researchers have suggested the opposite — that yawning lowers arousal and helps us go to sleep. But even though yawning and drowsiness occur together, no experiment has shown a causal connection between the two.

Could the purpose of yawning be regulation of body heat? Researchers have shown that contagious yawns (induced with yawning videos) can be decreased when a cold pack is placed on the forehead, and increased with a warm pack. But the experiment, Dr. Guggisberg says, did not control for other factors — a nice warm pack is likely to increase drowsiness, and a cold pack to increase wakefulness, making it impossible to determine the effect of temperature.

While Dr. Guggisberg finds the evidence for the thermal regulation theory inconclusive, Andrew C. Gallup, a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton, disagrees.

“In rat experiments, yawning is preceded by rapid increases in brain temperature and following the yawning a return to lower temperatures,” he said. “That suggests an association with a thermoregulatory function, although it can’t be interpreted as causal.”

Dr. Gallup outlines his position in an article accepted for publication in Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews, the same journal in which Dr. Guggisberg’s review appears.

Another theory is that yawning helps equalize pressure in the middle ear with outside air pressure. But that function can be fulfilled by other techniques — chewing or swallowing — so there is no reason to believe that yawning has an essential evolutionary advantage. And there is no evidence that yawning increases with air pressure changes.

So what purpose does yawning serve?

Children under 5 are not subject to contagious yawning, but adult humans, chimpanzees, monkeys and dogs — animals with advanced social skills — are. Apparently an understanding of the mental states of others is required before yawning becomes catching.

That idea is supported by M.R.I. observation in humans: watching others yawn activates brain regions related to imitation, empathy and social behavior.

For Dr. Guggisberg, this social interpretation is the only one that appears to account for all the aspects of the phenomenon. But Dr. Gallup points out that solitary species yawn, too, and that chimpanzees and humans yawn when they are alone.

Dr. Gallup conceded that yawning might have some social function in some species. But he said, “Any social function that it has would be a derived feature, and not a more primitive underlying feature of the behavior.”

Dr. Guggisberg, a researcher at the University of Geneva, offered a conclusion that few experts will find objectionable. “Yawning,” he said “is a very rich and complex phenomenon.”
