26 November 2013
It’s so hard when I have to, and so easy when I want to.
– Annie Gottlier

Tip of the week:
Recycle the waste products. Many waste products like glass, plastics, aluminium and paper can be recycled instead of being disposed off in the dustbin. This will prevent any air pollution accumulated on burning these products
