Amazing Numb3rs

Beauty of Mathematics !!!!!!!

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888

Brilliant, isn't it?
And look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

Now, take a look at this...

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:

What Equals 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to

How about ACHIEVING 101%?

What equals 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help
answer these questions:



Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.


H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K

8+1+18+4+23+ 15+18+11 = 98%

K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E

11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%


A-T-T-I-T-U- D-E

1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%

THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:
L-O-V-E-O-F- G-O-D

12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%

Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:

While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will
get you there, It's the Love of God that will put you over the top!

It's up to you if you share this with your friends & loved ones just
the way I did..

Have a nice day & God bless!!

How To Save Your Fuel?

For the past three years I owned a car, I never seen this situation before.. a Shell kiosk and Petronas kiosk center in my hometown were this crowd! (picture taken on June 4th, 2008).

These gas kiosks were crowd with cars since 4.00 p.m because of the pricing adjustment made by the Malaysian Goverment. The new price of petrol is RM2.70 per litre and diesel for RM 2.58 per litre. I have to queue up for almost an hour. Look, these cars still got a long way to get loaded!

Since we are facing the energy source issue, I think a precaution has to be taken to ensure economic way of using these nature based source. Please read my crazy tips to save your fuel.

1. In fact that the lighter your vehicle, the less fuel it uses. Therefore, decrease your cars’ weight by remove all the accessories including your car’s lips, additional bumper and skirts. For your betterment, change all the iron made of your car to plastic if possible. Please remember that, you should decrease you body weight also to ensure the car can carry you and your family easily.

2. Reduce your gas usage by turn your car off when go downhill and in the traffic light. This tip is as seen as on TV (Maxis advetistment).

3. You also can share cars with your friends or colleagues. Remember that sharing is caring. But this is sometimes uncomfortable to do so. First, if your friend late, then you’ll be late too. Second, you don’t want to share your BMW or you don’t want to sit on Kancil. Third, still, you still have to chip in your pocket money to your friend. You can also go anywhere by turning off your engine off but cars in motion. How? Tie your car with other moving vehicle that is same direction to your destination. You are still in your car, right? And it is moving!

4. Change your engine. High performance engine consumes more fuel, smaller engine need less fuel to function. I don’t expect you to switch your Toyota Passo engine to BMW’s or Toyota SUV with Honda City’s engine. They’re all using fuel. Try water as your fuel. Remember locomotive? It uses stim!

5. Still not satisfy? Why don’t you use bicycle? Gas-less, economic, easy to use, affordable maintenance. If still not satisfy, just walk ok!

I hope you’re enjoy for this short commentary from me. Thank you for! Heheh..

Spelling Error

Spelling error is common problem in language. Even an adult experience this problem. For an adult, spelling error occurred when they rarely use the word or they didn’t alert to the right spelling until it become habit to do it over and over again. It’s happening mostly because of careless. That’s my opinion.

Spelling error can happen to primary students when they didn’t acquire the phonic skills. A phonic skills is simply mean say or pronounce syllables and words. But first, pupils must know alphabet, the consonant and vocal. Of course I can’t explain everything here. Trying to avoid any misunderstanding or making any wrong points.

Last Monday, we’ve been conducting a test to the kids. One of the questions was spelling skill. Here are their answers on how to spell CROCODILE.

Crocodile spelled KORDOYAI ...

KORIBAY... (e-bay? Weston Bay?..)

KOOKEDAI... (kedai..?)

KOKORIDI.. (Koridi or mendidih?)

KOKORADAI... (nokoridai..? hehe)

Almost got the right spelling.. COCORODAI (means: tomorrow never die!)

The worst... BIAWAK! (can he/ she differentiate crocodile and biawak?)

And the real crocodile.. beware! Buaya daratttt!! hehe

Its funny to read, but worst to know that English is hard subject. Nowadays, english proficiency is very demanding especially in education. Under the PPSMI programme (Teaching and Learning Science Mathematics in English), our government believes that by changing the classroom language to english can lead this nation to move forward in development. As we look to this spelling test result, do you think that PPSMI is the best bet to development? Will it successful? Isn’t it hard?
