1. The word “incorrectly. ”

2. 1:45. The man gave away a total of 25 cents. He divided it between two people. Therefore, he gave a quarter to two.

3. None, the boat rises with the tide. Googly 😉

4. White. If all the walls face south, the house is at the North pole, and the bear, therefore, is a polar bear.

5. Three. Well, it seems that it could almost be either, but if you follow
the mathematical orders of operation, division is performed before
addition. So… half of two is one. Then add two, and the answer is three.

6. Sloppy is a (gold)fish. The wind blew the shutters in, which knocked
his goldfish-bowl off the table, and it broke, killing him.

7. None. No matter how big a hole is, it’s still a hole: the absence of dirt.

8. Both questions, same answer: the ball in the bucket of 45 degree F
water hits the bottom of the bucket last. Did you think that the water in the 30 degree F bucket is frozen? Think again. The question said nothing about that bucket having anything in it. Therefore, there is no water (or ice) to slow the ball down…

9. The time and month/date/year American style calendar are 12:34, 5/6/78.

10. One. If he combines all of his haystacks, they all become one big stack.

11. The temperature.

The Swimming Oranges and the Floating Bananas

The last day of Chinese New Year (its called Chap Goh Meh in Hokkien – a Chinese dialect) is also known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day. For most Malaysian Chinese, they knew well of this certain ritual that happens every year on this day. Originated from Penang, Malaysia, this interesting ritual involves tossing tangerine/mandarin oranges or bananas by the singles into the pond or sea or river or any place with water in hope that their future partner will pick up their fruits.

And this year in Malaysia, it was the most happening event for the single men and women in more than 3 places in the state of Selangor itself.
Yes, they literally throw the tangerines and bananas into the pond. Like this:

How does it work, you may wonder. nst-2

Well, its pretty simple actually, single women writes their names, phone numbers and some messages on tangerine oranges while the men does the same on bananas. Some women will write names and phone numbers while the more expressive ones will write messages, draw cute smileys or perhaps even their star sign.Men are probably more straight-to-the-point, minus the mushy messages.“See you”? Maybe on the other side is “I hope you will find me”.

So after the writing and tossing, the fruit fishing starts! And boy, they are so well prepared! Some brought long poles with net to fish out the fruits! Some of them brought a small note book or phones so they could fish out a few oranges or bananas and jot down the necessary details on it. Then they toss the fruits back to the pond! How clever.
