During my Primary School days in Kingswood Kalaw, it was popular and I could swing 1500-5000 continuously without dropping once. BUT, now, I saw hula hoops at my friend’s Sports Shop, I am embarrassed and disappointed because I even failed to successfully swing ONCE because of my protruding tummy.

Once upon a time a tortoise and a hare decided to have a race.

As the race start, the hare runs very fast for awhile but once he knows that he is far ahead of the tortoise, he decided to rest for a while under a tree but he soon falls asleep.
