Inuka, the first polar bear born in the tropics, celebrates his 16th birthday today. The zoo is phasing out polar bears, so he will eventually leave Singapore when his mother Sheba passes away. In the meantime, let's hope they enjoy their stay with us.

I visited the Zoo today as part of the department's Christmas celebration. It seems a little different from the way I remembered. You can get closer to some animals now. Perhaps the cool weather encouraged the animals to come out into the open instead of hiding in a corner. What irony. When the sunlight is good for photographs, the animals hide in the shadows to cool off. When it's gloomy and the lighting is poor, the animals come out to play.

Must be from personal experiences...
Haha, indeed "Lucy" is a name that strikes a chord. I would relate the name to "Black Hill Old Demon" though *inside joke*

So many characters died in this show. How could you let children watch this?
What do you mean many? Only one good guy died. And most of the bad guys who died are monsters who didn't speak a single line.

Hardcore man. But at least you managed to solve it. I'm impressed.
I solved it in 17 minutes. I've had harder.
Waw, that's great that you could solve it dude.. two thumbs up for you :)
Well, apparently you worked it out the way my php script did it. My program also had to guess 4 levels deep.
I discovered this puzzle when I did a google search “most difficult sudoku,” the search returned an article about AI Escargot. So I copied it down and solved it in about 20 minutes or so. Disappointed at how easy it was, I was relieved to discover it wasn’t the real AI Escargot, so I found the real one.
There is a difference between guessing a solution, and proving that the solution you have is unique.
Yes I totally agree. It is disturbing that we are exchanging the last vestiges of unspoilt nature for artificial commericial kitsche. What seems even wrong to me is the fact that given the mandate to market the southern islands as a getaway for tourists, the attractions (much like the IRs) will be catered towards the opulent lifestyles and alienating the local citizens.
I just went past Tang Dynasty last week. It looks so weathered that it's actually starting to look authentic.
