EXOTIC DISHES If you feel like filling your weekend with some shopping and games, then join the Singapore International School Carnival on their campus at 23 Nam Long Shan Road, Aberdeen, on Saturday from 10am to 4pm. You will be treated to gourmet dishes, such as nasi lemak, assam fish, roast pork neck, and other signature South Asian dishes. Stores in the gym are there for those wanting to do early Christmas shopping. You can also learn to make grasshoppers, flour dolls and ding-ding candy. MAGIC OF GUQIN Listen to the refined tune of guqin and learn more about Chinese musical culture. There will be two guqin demonstrations in the exhibition gallery of the Central Library tomorrow at 3pm and 5pm. Each session lasts about 30 minutes. It is part of 'Echoes of Antiquity - an exhibition on guqin heritage'. There, you will see 20 rare qin instruments from as far back as the Northern Song dynasty (10th century). FUTURE OF ROBOTICS Tonight there's a talk on creative robotics by Professor Kevin Warwick at the British Council. In 1998, he became the first person to have a silicon chip transponder surgically implanted in his left arm. His latest implant 'Project Cyborg' got underway in March 2002. Cyborg means a cybernetic organism - part human and part machine. The experiments involve a direct link between the professor's nervous system and a computer. Two presentations on robot intelligence and cyborgs start at 6.30pm. Follow Young Post next week. We'll be there to report back to you.
