How good’s your listening?

As you might also notice, there are many people on headphones walking around with their smartphones. Today this would be as ubiquitous as it can get. Since it is also said that there are more than 2 billion smartphone users in the world today though folks may well quote statistics that differ.

Not the point of this post.

We were more interested in how using headphones will affect hearing. This intrigued us because we read of this guy here who can recognize birds just from listening to their song. Wow. Now that surely takes great hearing to be able to first tune in to the chirping and then discerning it. Tweet! LOL.

Where we live (ie the little red dot), its never truly quiet. We have plenty of traffic on the roads and in the skies that contribute to the hustle and bustle of daily life. Then there are the neighbours, the chattering of children and crying of babies… All in a day’s life indeed. Some people simply hate that while others love it. Talk about a man’s meat being another’s poison.

We all encounter challenges in listening in our lives from the office to being at home. How do you filter out the noise?

There’s wildlife in Singapore?

Yes. There is wild life in Singapore. Not the all night binge drinking type (well yeah that exists too) but the kind that lives in the natural environment. I mean the kind that is not bipedal. You know what I mean right?

No worries. If you did not understand nor thought to, just click here and read all about the wild life that exist alongside the urban sprawl in the little red dot. You will know that Sir David Attenborough made a documentary about the wilds of Singapore recently…that’s why the alligator (eh or was it a croc) is the featured image for this post.

(un)Fortunately, I did not get to see more of them.

That one’s just a tiny baby. But wait! If such juveniles are around, it meant something larger had laid eggs for them to hatch? Hmmm…
