Since my mood was spoiled by the washing machine disaster this morning, I didn’t feel like blogging.. Now that I finished the chores of the day and still have another 2 hours before fetching kids from school, I thought I might as well do something productive.

First of all the answer to the question I had asked earlier about viewing yeast cells under a microscope.. Use Methylene blue ( can be found in the Aquarium supply store) in the yeast solution.. it stains the cells .

I had always thought that I sucked in Maths and I always believed that it was the way they taught Maths in school. For 23 years I have not touched Maths( Physics calculations during pre-degree excluded).

Since September kids have been going for Kumon Maths and surprisingly I still remember my maths. I don’t need to use the answer booklet to mark their work books. Yaya is in doing level F which I think is grade 8 and I remember how much I hated Maths in grade 8, 9 and 10. I also remember how much I hated Leela Kochamma, who was my maths teacher.

The thing is, if I haven’t touched Maths for 2 decades and I still remember how to do it, then I certainly had the best teacher on earth.

So this is to Leela Kochamma. Thank you for teaching me. I am sorry for hating you all these years!!!!

Nice attitude… Really we don’t usually remember about our teachers though we use what they taught us.
