20 QUESTIONS!!

20 QUESTIONS!!

Came across this quirky little programme. Remember how we used to play 20 Questions when we were little (hmm.. or not-so-little)?? That’s how it works! And consistently when it is unable to guess the answer, the user will put the new item into its database and thus enabling it to grow. In a way, it serves as a learning cycle.

Anyway, I managed to beat it in the 1st time! I was thinking of the “trigger fish”. Hehe. Hey…! I wonder if I have told you my trigger fish adventure. Let me scroll through the past entries. If not, I will do so in my next entry.

Keep your eyes on this space!

CHINESE ZODIAC SIGNS….!!

CHINESE ZODIAC SIGNS….!!

My Mom has just bought the new chinese zodiac signs prediction book for the coming New Year… It has been written by some famous fengshui master (His face appears on the cover of the book. Decent-looking, bespectacled guy) from Hong Kong.

Therefore, everything has been written in CHINESE! It takes me about 3 times the length of time I need for reading English. Anyway, I painstakingly read through the first paragraph (the most important one because it sums up the general outlook). YIPPEEE!!! Rabbit (Yep yep! I was born in the Year of the Rabbit, the cute little white furry animal.) will enjoy luck and prosperity in the coming year, especially in career and studies. It’s one of the top 5 lucky animals!

Being the nosy parker that I am, I read through the rest of the zodiac signs (only the 1st paragraph of course!).

The top 5 lucky animals are :

Rabbit

Horse

Snake

Ox

Forgot the last one. Sorry. Hehe.

Anyway, I was pondering over this issue while I was driving to work this morning. I know that the English horoscopes (the stars) originated from the formation of stars. But.. but… what about the Chinese zodiac signs?? Where did they come from??!!
