What causes the difference between the tastes of fruits?

Assalamu alaikum.

Did you know that…..

Each fruit has a different taste which varies in some way from the taste of any other fruit. The taste of any fruit relies on the compounds it bears. In general, a fruit consists of fructose (natural sugar), organic acids, vitamins, starch, proteins, minerals and cellulose.

All these materials are present in different proportions in different fruits. Fruits that have more fructose-content taste sweeter, while those having more acids taste more sour.

An orange is a fruit which comprises almost equal quantities of fructose and acids. Hence, it tastes both sweet and sour. In general, raw fruits contain more acids, but on ripening, the quantity of acid decreases and the quantity of fructose increases.  Therefore, raw mangos are sour and ripe ones are sweet. Some fruits, like lemons, do not taste sweet even after ripening. This is because of the excessive amounts of acids.

What does the ocean look like?

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullah.

The ocean is made up of 60 different chemical elements that give it its salty taste. The main ingrients, chlorine, sodium, sulphate, magnesium, calcium, and potassium, come mostly from river sediments and are dumped into the ocean.

The temperature of the water differs according to the intensity of the sun’s rays hitting it. The surface of water is warmer than that at a great depth.
The colours that make up sunlight are absorbed in different ways by water particles. Red yellow and orange cannot penetrate (go in) more than a few feet below the surface of the water. But blue can penetrate more than 800 feet. That is why the ocean appears blue.

Sometimes water looks green. That is because it contains lots of little tiny plants called phytoplankton.  Water puts pressure on the human body. The deeper we go the greater the pressure. The black sea and the yellow sea got their names from the colour of sediment floating in their water and lying on their beds.

My New Gimp Picture :)

Assalamu alaikum!

Today I said to myself ” Huhhh… I miss making photos on gimp, I think I should make something on it today.” So I did. First, I couldn’t think of anything. I though and thought. Until finally, I had an idea! I thought. Aha! A leopard print picture! After I made it, I wanted to share it with you guys. By the way, just in case you don’t know, I use gimp 2.6. I would have did it on Photoshop, but it vanished when our laptop just turned off and wasn’t turning on. But dad fixed it (the laptop) alhamdullilah.  Well, here is my result……… Ahem, drum roll please, “drum roll” tadaaaaa:

Do you like it? I do! Well then again I like nearly everything. You probably think it’s a bit plain. But that’s not my fault. It wasn’t letting me Add a new layer so I gave up after trying a hundred times. Please comment and visit my blog at least 2 times a week to see if I have uploaded some new posts on my blog. Quick note: I might be to lazy to write lots of posts but I’m going to post at least twice a week inshallah. I usually have writers block which is really annoying but I really enjoy writing on my blog Alhamdullilah :) I find it fun!!

Wassalamu alaikum,
Habiba :P :D ;)
