5 Cool things by Tan Solita

THEY’RE sweet, delicious, and my favourite snack. There are lots of brownie recipes, but they’re all  similar in style: melted butter and chocolate; beaten eggs; sugar; a little flour; and you can add walnuts or cashew nuts if you like. They’re quick and easy to bake: melt the butter and chocolate together in a large saucepan, then remove from heat and stir. Pour into a greased, square pan and bake at 177 degrees Celsius for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool and cut into squares. The tip is not to overcook them – they  should be moist and chewy. Brownies are great for snacks and lunches, and some have cheesecake-style toppings that make them ideal as special desserts. Enjoy some sweet time with your family!

Portable battery fan
PORTABLE battery fans come in various shapes and sizes, depending on your needs. They are very useful and handy to have around, because they can provide a cooling stream of air wherever and whenever you need it, and usually require only a couple of batteries to power them. They are real lifesavers, especially during scorching  weather. Wouldn’t you agree?


IN an age where technology is growing up, IMAX 3D was created for the ultimate movie experience. Using unique film and projectors, it’s designed to give viewers not only the experience of images bursting out of the screen but also providing the best possible sound and crystal-clear images. An IMAX theatre is usually a building eight stories tall, and the enormous screen allows the  images to fill your field of vision. It does feel like you’re right there in the movie, and sometimes you’re tempted to reach out and feel if it’s a real picture right in front of your face.  Awesome!

Pal Micheky
NOT just a regular plush toy, Pal Mickey is a talking Mickey Mouse that uses wireless communication technology to provide guests with up-to-date information about the Walt Disney World theme park’s attractions, parades and shows. Pal Mickey can also tell jokes, tell the time and even play games. He’s more like a personal tour guide than a toy. Imagine how cool it is to have him going around the park, because he’s no longer available for purchase unless you can get a used one from an online shop.

Hula hoop

WHAT kind of exercise equipment do you like?  If you asked me that question, my answer would be a hula hoop. I’d suggest  that people too lazy to go to the gym or get some exercise try one. Hula-hooping for 30 minutes straight can be just as beneficial as jogging for 30 minutes and can help you lose weight, strengthen your heart and lower your blood pressure. It’s fun and effective, and you will end up losing stubborn fat. Trust me, it works!
