Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, a novella Mr. Stephens class in Korea International School had read. This novella had a good plot that relates this the real world.  While reading this novella, it came to mind that sometimes human beings make a virtual replica of themselves. Through internet, many change their names, age, sex  and so much more. They take advantage of the fact that people will not know the real side of them. Sooner or later, the virtual version of themselves gets engraved too much that it’s hard for them to snap out of it. This is the same as how Dr. Jekyll enjoyed Mr. Hyde at first but later the presence of Mr. Hyde turned into torture.

LAUGH LOVE LIVE

Every country has odd sides. Some laws are very ridiculous too. Here are some random UK weird laws:

UK laws that WILL get you in trouble:

– All English males over the age 14 are to carry out 2 or so hours of longbow practice a week supervised by the local clergy!

– It is illegal to be drunk in a pub or bar.

– Any boy under the age of 10 may not see a naked mannequin.

– In Scotland it is illegal to be a drunk in possession of a cow.

UK laws that WON”T get you into trouble:

– It is legal for a male to urinate in public, as long it is on the rear wheel of his motor vehicle and his right hand is on the vehicle.

– In Chester you can only shoot a Welsh person with a bow and arrow inside the city walls and after midnight.

– In Hereford you may not shoot a Welsh person on Sunday with a longbow in the Cathedral Close

– In York, excluding Sundays, it is perfectly legal to shoot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow

HAVE you ever imagined living in a house that is impossible to exist?

Whenever I went to Disney Land, I had always wanted to live in either Mickey

or Minne’s house. But, now grown, I know it’s impossible to find a house like that.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t let my imagination wonder! This site had pictures of

different houses that brought back childhood memories. I wish I was young once again

to believe without doubts that someday I will be able to live in a house like Mickey and Minne’s.

The Simpsons’ House

Flintstones House

Barbie’s House

Hobbit’s House

Star Wars-inspired House

There’s more here

A New Jersey mother of two has announced she’ll stick to a calorie-laden, ultra-sedentary lifestyle in her effort to tip the scale as one of the world’s heaviest women.
Donna Simpson, 42, already weighs 600 pounds. She hopes to add another 400 to her frame within two years.

To do it, she’s eating 12,000 calories a day and trying to move as little as possible.
It’s a costly endeavor: Simpson estimates that she spends $750 a week on groceries, which is financed by her Web site, where fans can watch streaming video of Simpson as she eats.
The idea was inspired by her boyfriend, Philippe, whom Simpson describes as “a real belly lover” and an enthusiastic supporter of her weight gain goal.

“I think he’d like it if I was bigger,” Simpson told the U.K.’s Daily Mail. She met Philippe in a fat fetish chat room in 2006.

In 2007, Simpson became the fattest woman ever to give birth when she delivered daughter Jacqueline with the help of 30 doctors, nurses and medical assistants.

Despite the high-risk childbirth, a diagnosis of diabetes and her reliance on a motorized scooter for errands that require more than 20 feet of walking, Simpson describes herself as healthy — and happy.

“I love eating, and people love watching me eat,” she said. “It makes people happy, and I’m not harming anyone.”

Simpson is rapidly progressing toward membership in a very small group. “The 900 Club,” as dubbed by Dimensions magazine, consists of those who do, or did, exceed the 900-pound mark. And if the company she keeps is any indication, Simpson might not live long enough to become a 1,000-pound woman.”

“Simpson may be making headlines for her weight gain ambition, but she doesn’t actually have much competition — they’ve all died off. The last known woman to exceed 1,000 pounds was Renee Scarfa, who died of weight-related heart problems in 2008, at age 42.”

Is she that desperate for attention? Somebody please give her some attention!Click on photo to read more!

Julie and Julia


If you are a cooking maniac, you’ll love this movie.

If you are a person who loves French food,  you’ll love this movie.

If you are a person who loves romance, you’ll love this movie.

If you are a person who’s into motivation, you’ll love this movie.

It will inspire you and also trigger your hunger.

My personal favorites from the movie :

Sole with Lemon Cream

Apple Tarte

Bruschetta with Tomatoes and Basil

(personal favorite !)

French Silk Pie

Slow-Cooked Provençal Beef Stew

Chicken Breasts with Mushroom Cream Sauce

Herb and Lemon Roast Chicken

CAN YOU SAY  YUM?

I just can’t express how much I love this movie. I love all cooking movies but this, this is a movie that is so real that I can actually taste everything. My gosh the texture and the words that describes the foods, it makes them so real that I always end up trying to imitate some dishes. Of course, it does not look good as the pictures but, it taste better than it appears to be. Never judge a book by it covers, never judge a dish by its appearance.

I HATE SCHOOL

I hate school so much but during breaks I miss school.

The thought of school makes me want to barf.

I hate school so much but I think it’s mostly because of the works.

The thought of working makes me want to cry.

I hate school so much  but I think it’s because I’m tired from studying.

The thought of studying makes me want to sleep.

I hate school so much words can’t express this feeling.

It may be due to the projects, homework, quizzes, tests.

To teachers they think they aren’t giving out a lot of work but

they don’t realize that they give out an hour of homework

plus we have 2 tests or quizzes to study for

and a project to finish while studying for our tests/quizzes.

I hate school because teachers act agreeable but brings the words ” torture, agony and discomfort” in mind.

Anyoung; Korean way of saying hello but also means goodbye

  1. Hello; Spanish
    Hola (pronounced o-la)
  2. Hello;Russian

    Privet (pronounced pree-vyet)

  3. Hello; Japanese

    konnichi wa (pronounced kong-nee-chee-wa)

  4. Hello; Italian

    ciào (pronounced chow)

  5. Hello; Hawaiian

  6. Hello;German

  9. Hello;Arabic

    mArHAbA (pronounced Mar-ha-ba)

Hello, hi, how do you do?

Good bye, have a nice day, bye bye.

All these are greetings that most people around the universe knows and sometimes use. These few words of acknowledgment

can really be a positive thing to hear. Greetings are like compliments. They make you happy because you realize when someone greets you they do it out of kindness. Sometimes hearing just “hi” from a special person can really make a difference on how you start a day. Next time give it a try. Say hi or just hello to a random person you pass. I am pretty sure they will either nod, greet you back, or smile. If they look at you in a weird way, that one smile and “hi” you give them will be in their mind the whole day and next time when you say hi, maybe they will greet you back.
