Do u stay in a HDB flat? If yes, do u ever hear marbles droping late at night from upstairs? Have u ever wondered why occasionally now and then, u hear marbles dropping? It could be children playing marbles, but in this century when they got ps1, ps2 xbox, they play with marbles in the middle of the night? Or shift furniture in the middle of the night?
Sometimes I wonder, asked alot of my friends and they all heard the same things in their flats occasionally....

>>When HDB started building flats, they put marbles in between the floor so as to let 'them' play and that they won't disturb the occupants..... otherwise u really think that children playing marbles upstair, u can hear it downstair in yr flat meh? If so, I switch on hifi or tv, my neighbours downstairs also can hear lor....

Okae, not sure abt hearing hifi and TV and stuffs like tt.. duno how true but I do hear something like marbles dropping in the middle of the night... -_-"

Errmm... in case you didn't realise it, it is rather sucidal to give your baby small sized stuff to play with (since they love to put everything & anything into their mouths). Marbles are one such hazard... :what:
