Trivia Thursday

Sorry for disappearing for a couple of weeks like that. Christmas is approaching, so I've been busy with both personal and business stuff. And, no, I didn't disappear coz I didn't have anything to write. On the contrary, I tend to be quite long-winded in my blogging such that I sometimes take quite awhile to churn out a post. Hence the "I've so much to do that I better prioritise." - and unfortunately, blogging takes a backseat to a lot of other stuff. So... that's where I've been...

So, this morning, while in the shower, I was trying to think of interesting stuff to write about which would make a short post, and then it hit me! You know how you have these random bits of information that floats in your head - not that important to make a hooha about but interesting enough to bring up in a conversation with a friend for a laugh? Well, I have lots of those floating about. And the thing about such random facts is, it will not be critically alarming if I forget the information, but yet, I would much prefer to remember it.

Thus, TRIVIA THURSDAY is born! I shall attempt to share a trivia every other Thursday, starting from today. And I invite the good women of Singapore Mom Bloggers and any other blogger on earth (or any other planet which manages to connect to us - by wifi? :p) To join me in sharing interesting trivia of their lives. Everyone has a story to share! Share yours! No matter how trivial it is! :)

Now for the inaugural bit of trivia...

Do you know I actually went live on radio before? It was about 2 years ago, on Gold 90.5 when Maggie and Hamish were hosting the morning show together. They posed this question to their listeners:"Why do hotdog sausages come in packs of 10 when hotdog buns come in packs of 8?"

I smsed in my answer:"It's a conspiracy by the sellers to make consumers buy more packs of hotdog buns and sausages. Because, in order to buy the exact same number of sausages and buns, you need to buy at least 4 packs of sausages (4 x 10 sausages per pack = 40) and 5 packs of buns (5 x 8 buns per pack = 40)! Lowest common denominator theory!"

Maggie and Hamish were so amused by my answer that they called me and ask if I would go on air with them to tell listeners my answer :)

Now... what's YOUR trivia?


  1. Haha, actually they can buy 5 packs of sausages and 4 packs of buns too! =) Save half the $$! Still, love that logic. Keke. Nice meme theme yeah!

    1. Hey Summer! *dursh* that's exactly what I said on air actually! Lowest common denominator! I went back up to change the numbers. Thanks for reminding me! :)
      Join in the fun with your trivia too!

  2. Haha so funny! Hey I never thought of that u know...
