Free Rice and Stick Girl

Would you pay attention if I said the word 'Free', 'Percuma' , '免费' ???

Do you get hungry ???

Do you like rice???

Rice!!! The Asian staple......some ppl can't even stay overseas without eating at least a bowl of it every day =.=""

Stumbled across a website pledging to donate Free Rice to help end world hunger! OK, so there isn't gonna be any free rice for u privileged folk out there (who have internet access and who are reading my blog right now). But ur supporting a cause to bring free rice to poverty stricken people all around the world....... is a non-profit site that has 2 goals:
  1. Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
  2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
There's a vocab game at the left, so for each word u get right, they'll donate 10 grains of rice through the United Nations (UN) to help end world hunger.... o.O
So for all u vocab or word game freaks out there, here's a way u can help save the world i guess...

After playing for a few minutes, I 'donated' 1120 grains of rice, with a vocab level of 34. Took a screenshot of the bowl of rice part, cos it made me feel hungry. See that mound of rice on the left, thats 1000 grains of rice there... lol... I wonder how many bowls of rice that equals to.

Anywayz.... try it out and see how high a vocab level u can get...cos according to the site, there are 50 levels in all, but it is rare for people to get above level 48. o.O Some words are really perplexing.

Even if ur not so hot for word games and stuff, just try to click the words and see how many grains of rice u can donate. Cos after u play it, u can bask in the glow that somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. o.O


It's my bday month this month.... and I stumbled across a cute picture of a bday celebration at The Bitter Stickgirl

Totally love her site.... it's a blog without words, expressed with a simple stick figure drawing. Yet at they say, a picture says a 1000 words..... It's sweet and simple, yet when u think about it, it's complex and twisted at the same time.... Cool!

Happy Bday to all Nov babies out there and Sagitariuses too!!!
