Jφss Sticks Renamed

(11)
Tuition given in the topic of Study Break from the desk of Miss Loi at 10:38 am (Singapore time)

UPDATE (a week after APRIL FOOLS’): To those of you who have been asking Miss Loi for the contact of her ‘very, very famous Feng Shui Master’, he doesn’t exist since this is an APRIL FOOLS’ joke. Repeat, an APRIL FOOLS’ joke!

UPDATE (post APRIL FOOLS’): Chopsticks is such a silly name (for a tuition centre) 😛

UPDATE: In view of the huge amount of work involved in ‘converting’ Jφss Sticks to ChΘρsticks, this blog will be shut down for a scheduled maintenance from 12am tonight (2 April 2010).

Hope to be up and running again by Saturday!

Truth be told: Miss Loi has been regularly consulting a Feng Shui Master (a very, very famous one if she might add) on matters pertaining to her outlook in life, place of residence, business and … umm … the affairs of the heart.

High on the list is, of course, the well-being of this beloved blog of hers and she was devastated when being told, in no uncertain terms, that the name Jφss Sticks is extremely inauspicious and that it would bring great woe and misfortune to her (and possibly its readers) should it be continued to be used in the future.

Overcoming her initial reluctance to part with a name that she (and presumably all readers) had grown attached to all these years, she nevertheless got down to business and, after numerous in-depth brainstorming sessions in the past weeks with the Master in his office (hence the lack of blog entries during this period), she has decided (with the Feng Shui Master’s venerable input and blessings) that …

… From the perspective of many weak students, mathematical topics are often like tiny grains of rice scattered all over the table. And since Miss Loi’s role is to facilitate the task of “picking up” these concepts as quickly and elegantly as possible, it is only supremely fitting to name this blog after the ancient tool invented for this purpose.

And so with immediate effect, Jφss Sticks shall be renamed

ChΘρsticks

And Jφss Sticks Sessions are now ChΘρsticks sessions!

And with further input from the Master, based on the Chinese old wives’ tale that one (or one’s future husband/wive or whoever) will be cursed with a pock mark for each uneaten grain of rice, the tagline shall henceforth be changed to

For Effective Prevention of Pock Marks From Uneaten Grains of Knowledge

Nice, witty and creative don’t you think? What else do you expect from Miss Loi? *flicks hair*

As you can see, the blog header has been amended to reflect these changes, and the rest of the website shall follow suit in due time, since the wise Feng Shui Master has ordered ALL traces of the nasty words Jφss Sticks to be removed by a certain auspicious date/time or else …

Lastly Miss Loi would like to thank you (her readers) for supporting Jφss Sticks (oops must refrain from speaking the words!) this blog in the past years, and though it has been painful for her to change the name, she looks forward to your continued loyal support for ChΘρsticks from now on.

*braces herself for lotsa work this long weekend* 🙁

頑張って!!!

    Yup folks, Jφss Sticks 3.0 is up & running now - but there are still a couple of bugs and issues that are being ironed out at the moment.

    *buys a cup of Frappucino for The Trusty Webmaster who is hard at work*

    P.S. Chopsticks and what pock marks from uneaten grains just sound plain silly don't you think? 😛
