Places I like to go in Singapore

                                                      View Places I like to go in Singapore. in a larger map

  1.  I like to go to the Jurong regional library as I have been going there to borrow story books since I was very young.Most of the books that I read are there and it is the closest library to my house.
  2. I like to go to Jcube shopping center as it has a cinema,an ice skating ring and lots of great places to eat and shop.It is also quite near to my house and so I don't have to go too far to watch movies at the cinema.
  3. I like going to the Science Centre as there are lots of exhibits and there are lots of things that I can learn and lots of interesting hands-on activities.
  4. I frequently go to Bukit Timah Plaza for my fencing lessons.I like to go there as after my lessons on certain occasions I would get to eat at a fast food restaurant.

A video that caught my attention.

This video is about how trees can grow up to more than 100 meters and transport water to the top most branches even though the maximum height limit that water can be sucked up is 10 meters.It also explains how trees manage to transport water above 10 meters.

     3 things that I have learnt from this video:

  1. I have learnt that the maximum height that water can be sucked up is 10 meters .
  2. The thinner the tube,the higher the water can climb.
  3. Less than 1% of the water in the tree is being used in photosynthetic reactions,5% of the water is being used to make new cells and the rest just evaporates.

About me (I)

Hi everyone,my name is Luke Alexander Nair,but you can just call me Luke :)
I love to read books especially books that have magic,action and books that make me laugh.When I was in primary school,my teacher and friends used to call me a bookworm.Though I like reading I also like doing sports like fencing,floor ball and running.I also like watching Running Man :)

 I don't really know how to strike up a conversation and I am more introverted though once I get to know you I can be really friendly :).I like to follow instructions clearly and work in a quiet and peaceful environment and when it gets to noisy I tend to get frustrated.
