Mindmap of speed

My favourite song

One thing you should know about me is that my favourite song changes every time I hear a nicer one so I don't exactly have an all-time favourite, this song is just a favourite for now.

A video clip that caught my attention

Title: How chocolate can help repair spinal damage

Content: It is about a group of scientists trying to find out how to make a paralyzed person be able to voluntarily move again with motivation and stimulants by testing it out on a rat.

3 points that I have learnt:
1. When someone has crushed or severed his/her spinal cord, it can no longer send neurosignals from the body to the brain and this will result in paralysis.
2. When a cocktail of synthetic neuro transmitters were injected into the rat's spinal cord, the healthy but disconnected neuro cells were activated again.
3. With motivation, the rat was able to reconnect its dorman neural network and move its paralyzed limbs again with the help of the neuro transmitters and a machine.          

Places I like to go in Singapore

Out of the 10 places I marked on the map, the places I frequent the most are AMK(Ang Mo Kio) Hub and Bishan Park. AMK Hub has many interesting shops and eateries, but most importantly, it has a cinema. So, as it is the nearest mall to most of my friends' and my houses, we often go there to watch movies or shop around. My friends and I also often go to Bishan Park as it is the nearest park to our houses. We go there to either exercise or just sit around and talk. As Bishan Park is newly developed park, the scenery is awesome! :) I especially like how they converted the canal into a river, and planted grass on the two banks. My friends and I often sit on the bank of the river to chat and watch the fishes swim by and if we're lucky, we might get to see the egrets. :D

About Me (I)

I think this picture of a tigress represents me well because I can be friendly when you don't disturb or provoke me, but when you do, I can be as ferocious as the tiger (That's how I got the nickname tigress in primary school) ;)
My name is Lynette Tan but most of my friends call me nettes. Some of my hobbies include playing the piano and taking part in sports with my friends. the most common sports we take part in are badminton and jogging, but I also enjoy playing netball. During my free time, I would normally go to the park with my friends to jog. As for my personality, I'm a rather quiet person, that is until you know me. Ask any of my friends and they will tell you that I am the most talkative person they know. Usually, I will try to complete my homework as soon as possible but sometimes I still do procrastinate. I hope to be able to make friends with a lot of you next year. :)
