Did you know that only 10% of the world's population is skilful with their left hands?
I just learned about this yesterday, thinking how unique (and special!) my younger sister is (a lefty). A lot of things in this world are designed for right-handed people, making everyday things trickier for the left-handed: from writing, driving, to even locking the gate!
Tables were turned yesterday as Pilipinas Shell challenged me and my friends to several tasks... using our left hands!
We met in a studio in Makati, had our hair and makeup done, before going in front of the camera for the crazy tasks!
"Ang GGSS!" Hahaha, always fun to work with these girls:
Aaaand... We're ready! Cameras rolling:
First Assignment: Add two scoops of ice cream into a cone using our left hand. It was easy naman, but siguro kasi tunaw na sya! Haha!
"Ang dali!" Hahaha!
Second Assignment: Write using our left hand. I was able to do it, but not as nice as my right-hand penmaship. Hehe! Parang pang Grade 1!
Third Assignment: Cut-out a shape with the tiny scissors. I was able to do it after struggling, but lines were not perfect. :p
And lastly, we copied and colored several shapes using a computer mouse. Ang tagal namin dito, haha!
Me: "O diba, buti nalang hindi ako perfectionist!"
On International Left-hander’s Day (August 13), Pilipinas Shell is giving away a unique gift to left-handed motorists that they could use every day.
“We at Shell are one with left-handers in celebrating their uniqueness and individuality on International Left-hander’s Day,” says Anthony Lawrence Yam, Pilipinas Shell Vice President for Retail.
Pilipinas Shell continues its commitment to make every visit to a Shell service station a delightful experience for all customers. Shell celebrates with motorists every special day such as the International Left-hander’s Day, and more surprises are in store for Shell patrons in the coming months that will surely delight them in more ways than one.
