Like other flu viruses, Influenza A virus is spread mainly through people with flu, coughing or sneezing. Sometimes people may be affected by touching something with flu virus on it and then touching their mouth or nose. Like the regular human flu, common symptoms are high fever , with cough, sore throat, runny nose, muscle ache and tiredness. You are strongly advised to postpone or avoid non-essential travel to mexico and affected areas. If travel to such areas is unavoidable, please take precautionary measures and maintain good hygiene practises. Novartis AG expects a vaccine for Influenza A (H1N1) virus, declared responsible for the 21st century's first flu pademic, to be available by the Autumn after producing the first batch ahead of schedule.
You can do your part to prevent Influenza A by:
- Avoiding contact with people with symptoms of Influenza A
- Seeing a doctor and staying at home if you are unwell. If you need to go out, avoid crowded places, buses, trains and wear a surgical mask to cover your nose and mouth.
- Observe good personal environmental hygiene. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water frequently and after coughing or sneezing.
- Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing.
- Maintain good body resistance through a balanced diet, regular exercise, getting adequate rest, redusing stress and not smoking.

Culture, heritage, education and civic-mindedness make up a gracious society.
One whereby people appreciate spiritual development and the arts - the finer things in life.
One whereby people know their roots and are tolerant of that of the others.
One whereby people have a strong desire for learning and reading, beyond the pursuit of academic qualifications.
One whereby people lend themselves readily to acts of kindness, volunteer work and philanthropy etc for the betterment of society.
It's the little pieces that form the big picture.
With every small act of kindness, we create a pleasant society with good social behaviour, and make life better for everyone.
Kindness, Bring it on!

My CCA,green club has its green leaders to organise fun activities to help save the earth. There have been many natural disasters lately. We need to practice Reduce-Reuse-Recycle.
We should reduce the use of many things like plastic bags.
Reusing is to use an item more than once.
Recycling involves in processing used materials to make new products. Recycable materials include glass,paper metal,textiles and electronics.

I went to school early and sat at the Hatsuyume Square and took out my book to read.We had the flag raising session and soon,we were at the canteen having a break and waiting for the bus. Before we went up the bus, Mr Justin told us about what our behaviour should be like once we get to Sungei Buloh.
In the middle of the bus ride, everyone saw a railway. Mr Justin explained to us that the railway belonged to Malaysia.No wonder there was a traffic jam.The whole road belonged to Malaysia all because of the railway.We all got there at about 9:00a.m.We saw a bird's nest fern right at the left of our bus.
We saw the sign which read "Sungei Buloh".We had finally reached Sungei Buloh.I was surprised as we didn't need to pay any money.First,we went to the theatre.We watched about the kind of animals living in sungei buloh.Once we went out of the theatre,it was already raining.We had no choice of going inside to see the swamp animals.We went to the exhibitions and used the UMPCs to scan the barcodes there.Each barcode showed us a website that had questions we had to answer.After scanning the barcodes,we did a worksheet about all of the exhibitions.
Luckily,I saw a small malayan water monitor lizard sunbathing at the boardwalk entrance as the rain stopped and the sun came out.
It was so sad that we coudn't see other animals. Mr Justin informed us that we would go to Sungei Buloh next Monday.I can't wait for Monday to come!

I have been trying to decipher the hidden message since Monday through the computer screen. Today, my father printed out a copy of this picture. After careful observation, we find out that the method to understand the message is by looking at the printout at certain angles and look carefully to get the message. The messages are:
Message 1 - At first you only see
Message 2 - Weird shapes and lines
Message 3 - Then somebody helps
Message 4 - And a miracle happens

These were the time that the Orchid series were issued.
a) Orchid series - 1967 - 1976
This series has nine denominations. The dominant feature is a spray of orchid in the centre of the front of each note. On the front, all notes have the Singapore Arms, a watermark of a lion's head and the signature of the Minister for Finance and Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of Currency, Singapore. With the exception of the $10,000 note which has two security threads, each note has a single thread embedded vertically across the note. A scene of Singapore is depicted on the back.
These were the time that the Bird series were issued.
b) Bird series - 1976 - 1984
This series also has nine denominations as in the first except that a $20 note was introduced to replace the $25 note of the Orchid series. The dominant feature is a bird on the left side of the front of each note. The birds depicted on the notes are noted for their strength, adaptability and independence which characterize the young Republic of Singapore with the potential of soaring to greater heights in its progress.On the front, all notes have the Singapore Arms, a watermark of a lion's head and the signature and seal of Minister for Finance and Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of Currency, Singapore. With the exception of the $1,000 and $10,000 notes which have two security threads, each note has a security thread embedded vertically across it.
These were the time that the Ship series were issued.
c) Ship series - 1984 - 1999
As was with the previous 2 series, the Ship series also has nine denominations. The denominations are similar except that the previous $20 note was discontinued and a new denomination of $2 note was introduced. The pictorial and aesthetic themes of this series are based on maritime vessels and the modern development of Singapore. The vignettes on the front of the Ship notes depict vessels that have plied the waters of Singapore over the centuries. The series starts with the merchant craft of bygone days, and progresses to the modern bulk carrier which is featured on the highest denomination. The series pays contribution of merchant shipping to the development of Singapore from an entrepot trading centre to the busiest port in the world.
On the front, all notes have the Singapore Arms, a watermark of a lion's head and the signature and seal of Minister for Finance and Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of Currency, Singapore. On the front centre panel are creatures from Chinese mythology printed in colour lithographic offset prints. Each note has a security thread embedded vertically across it.
On the reverse of the notes are scenes depicting Singapore's achievements in the fields of communication, housing, defence and port management. The orchid featured on the back of all the Ship series notes is the national flower of Singapore, Vanda Miss Joaquim.
The three properties of an ideal currency note are:
a) High quality paper. A counterfeit note is usually printed on lower quality paper and has a smooth and waxy feel.
b) Watermark. The watermark on a counterfeit note is clearly visible without requiring the
note to be held against the light. It lacks the three-dimensional effect.
My parents like the Orchid series the most as the Orchid represents the Singapore flower and looks the best.
