Webify Me

So apparently this is how my internet look like, each items has its own meaning:

1.Disguise- Who are you? A mystery, an enigma, a chameleon that no one really knows. You know what you need to keep private, and what to show the outside world. Your identity is yours alone — wear them proudly, anonymous.= Yeap, I know what i need to keep private :P!

2. Puppet- Everything's better with a monkey in it. Monkeys are fun, smart, and optimistic. You got this crafty monkey because it reflects your own delightful optimism and playfulness. Or maybe you like bananas?= I am a bit playful and yeahh i like bananas they're healthy anyway:D.

4. Tissues- An ounce of prevention carried in your pocket can be quite handy. You're prepared for those pesky little ailments that can crop up unexpectedly, and have the resources to deal with them. Gesundheit!= True!

5.Omamori-Fortune is yours, with this Omamori. You know that the best luck is the luck you carry with you, and having a guide sure can help.= hmm.. am i really that lucky?.. well counting all the blessings I have,.yeahh I'm lucky, but does it mean i have a luck?.. (blur).

9.Crayons- The symbol of unpretentious creativity and art. You are almost certainly imbued with a child-like curiosity and an unfettered imagination, enjoy self expression and bright colors. You are child-like, or may actually be a child.= Yes that's me!

18. Swords- Party time? Excellent! You are the breeze that blows through a summer evening with friends new and old. The Cocktail Swordsman — or woman — knows how to parry with these weapons of social mirth.= :D

19. Buddha statue- Infinite kindness and fortune, they smile upon you. You're searches lead you to answers, and you're feeling lucky.=agreed!

20. Eyedrop- This vessel of curative liquid is your symbol, o power user! You are clear of vision, attack a problem at its source, and at the ready. You probably spend a lot of time staring at a screen, too. =hahaha, i have to say yes to this one as well:D

The Northwestern Coastline

"This is our playground. we love to play here. We see the sea, we see the sun, we feel the ocean breeze. We like it very much!" They said.

The somersault moment-"We are free to do anything we like; we jump, we shout and do somersault,it is fun"

1800hrs -Now I could hear not only the sound of the crashing waves; i heard laughter and excited voices in the air.

Follow Me - "come and lets play with the waves!"
Thursday- I went to seaside again and took some photos of ordinary things. Somehow, It turned out that the ordinary things that i photographed look beautiful in their own way. I remember mum asked me 'why do you insist to go alone and do things (photo-shooting) all by yourself?" My answer?..."I just don't wanna missed a thing".. 



I realised that while there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell me nothing more than what I see with my own eyes, there is another in which it proves to me how little our eyes permit us to see.
The world is never just black and white, right or wrong, one way or another. Try and see things from as many points of view as possible.

Live Your Life to the Fullest

“There are some mornings when I cry and cry and mourn for myself. Some mornings, I’m so angry and bitter. But it doesn’t last too long. Then I get up and say, ‘I want to live.’
I’ve learned that well… Life isn’t all it’s cut out to be. It has it’s ups and it’s down. But, you have to embrace those ups and downs and learn from them. You can’t just sit back and mope and make people have pity for you. You have to put those things that are hurting you aside and live. You only get one life, and that one life isn’t that long. You have to do everything that comes your way. Yeah, you might get embarrassed, but in a month…no one will remember. You have to do what you feel is right. You can’t worry about other people. Just live life how you would want to live it. Don’t follow examples, make them. Let people follow in your footsteps. Sometimes, you just have to dance around your room and look like a fool. Other times, you just have to sing as loud as you can, even if you do sound bad. You haven’t lived until you’ve danced around in your underwear. And most of all…You need to laugh. Never go a day without laughing, or at least smiling. It doesn’t matter if you have had the worst day, If you just laugh, everything will be ok. For the most part, just be you. Don’t listen to others. They are going to make fun of you. They are going to tell you that you are stupid. But that is their opinion. It only becomes true when you start to believe it."

Simple Pleasure

So we were originally with a 'mission' to do a horse riding by the beach, but we were turned down when the riding couldn't be done due to some inevitable reasons. We ended up at the beach doing some crazy sunset photo shooting instead. The sunset wasn't that really nice; cloud covers seemed to be like everywhere, and we could only see the hue of the sunset which was nice. So no horse riding for that day, but we had fun with our 'simple pleasures'..

24 Hours To Live_Maliau Basin

A friend of mine asked me a question "what will you do if you have another 24 hours to live?" That question made me think for a while.. I guess i didn't provide a good answer to this question since there will be so much things I will want to make sure that I do before my time is up. I think , it's human natural tendency to take things for granted and by the time when they realized everything, it'll be too late. 
So here's the video my friend made which she recorded during our stay in Maliau Basin. Thanks Joannie for making the stay in MB extra memorable with this video- Your question had really made me think!:)

Lil Michelle

"Mommy, lets go to the beach and play the waves, please?..."and she had her wish fulfilled when her mum took her to the beach that evening. I took this shot while she was standing still, waiting patiently for the waves to come. She jumped with joy as the waves started caressing her little feet.

Cute Story

There was a girl who was playing in the park when she saw a picture in the bush. Since that day, she kept it, find it, but seen noting until she get married. His husband asked who is the little boy in her wallet. The girl answered: "My first Love". Then the husband smiled and said "I lost this picture when I was 9 years old".

Self Affirmation


I must learn to love the fool in me the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries.

Just Another Thought

So it's July. Another 21 days and we are bound for August. I never thought that it's half a year now since I celebrated 2011, feels like I just celebrated it yesterday and that I was a year younger like just yesterday. Oh well, time flies very fast indeed. And I'm wondering what I have achieved in my life so far? Well does it matter anyway? Perhaps it does, to those really take life seriously. I am taking my life seriously but not up to the point that I don't enjoy my life and that everything is taken seriously, oh no, that's just not like me.

I have gone through ups and downs and my bittersweet memories collection have grown bigger. I fail and fall through out my life, I guess we all have been falling since our first attempt to stand up and to walk when we were babies. We cried, we may as well felt the pain it caused, did we stop trying? Nope, we stand up and continue to try walking until we succeed. It's true, that it's really hard to keep our head straight whenever we are in the darkest moment of our life- I went through that before, well I presumed everyone has gone through it before.

I believe everything that happened in our life happened for a reason. And I believe it's for a good reason. The ups and downs I had encountered in my life have strengthen me and I learnt a different approach to deal with emotions and troubles-perhaps I have reached the level of maturity in life as an adult?? I don't know, maybe.. 

And time certainly reminds me how precious life is and how I should really appreciate it. And so today, I thought, before I complaint about food, life, job,etc I will remind myself on those who don't have anything to eat at all, those who died early, those who are unemployed and wish had my job. And when depressing thoughts seem to get me down, I will remember to put a smile on my face and remind myself that I'm still alive and still around.

Life is beautiful, life is colorful, life is like a roller coaster, define anything about life as you like, I define mine as a Gift from the One who created it.

Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be

Smile

"Smile. This is not a drill. Please fasten your safety belts and restore your trays to their full upright and locked position. Dig into thoughts and memories until you've found power; that inner strength and the will to go on. Find the lingering smell that makes you think of that time... Look for the color that sparks the memory about... Show the world the person that can smile no matter what. Please keep all body parts away from the closing doors and prepare for take off. You know that in all darkness you will find a matching light. Conquer the fear of heights, spiders and ghosts. Take a shot of courage and march on through fire. Accomplish what you know you can do. It only takes a fraction of happiness and a moment of your time. Stride short and sweet with power in your footsteps. March to your own beat and rhythm. Excite the flip flops beneath you and fly on Hermes wings. Your time to shine is now, and aim that light at shadows below you. Light will stream out from you and catch others who will reflect it back. Your smile becomes there smile and show you every bit of comfortable strength it has to offer. Accept the offerings and be glad in this. This is a smile creeping across your face, and this is not a recording. Just don't forget to smile. You, this world and everyone in it is ALWAYS more beautiful when you smile." ~The Inspirational Tree

Dream

Let me fall asleep peacefully
into a deep sleep onto my pillow
of wishful blues
let the angels take me away on a journey
let me live
and be free
with heavenly wings that are spread out
in WORDS.....in SPIRIT.....
in ME just dreaming away.....

Beautiful You

I came across beautiful words about beautiful people on how they were made beautiful through hardship that happened in their life. A fact that is so true yet not many of us truly realized it for we are too consumed and occupied with our sufferings. I believe that everything in our life happens for a reasons and eventually make us one of those 'beautiful' people..

Dreamer's Waltz

One of my favorite piano piece by David Nevue

Day and night painted in beige and black
Celestial presence fills the bareness within
  Expressionism swirling within my heart
My spirits fluttering with howling winds
Reality obscured, in my abstract thoughts.....

Fly me Away

I've always been dreaming that I'm flying (without wings). Well What could it mean? Freedom? Accomplishment of something? or merely just a dream? Whatever it is, I decided to paint it (digitally).
Fly me away through these dead broken trees,
Take me up high and over the stormy seas;
Fly me so far, far away from here,
To land where babes do not know fear;
Oh, I want to go where the
sun shines so bright,
Where rays of pure happiness light up the dark night;
Golden trumpets play as the glorious angels sweetly sing,
And brilliant pearly gates swing open, as I bow to my King;
Fly me away to this heavenly perfect place,
Where I can bask in my Lord's most awesome grace. 
~Randi Bard~

You See It All In My Smile
You Hear It All In My Laugh
The Way I Walk

Of Dealin With Emotion
Keeping Control Of My Boat
While Drifting On This Ocean
Keeping My Head To The Sky
Keeping Tears Outta My Eye

Girl, This Happiness Be The Reason
That I Just Haven't Cried

And Life's Too Short
To Dwell On All That's Wrong
Stand Up Now
Stand Up Now,
And I Promise Not Before Long
Cuz You'll Be Feeling Better Today
Much Better Today,
Much Better Today
So Much Better
Feelin Better Today...

Borneo Carnivore Symposium 2011 (BCS2011)

I guess I was very lucky to have the opportunity to attend the 1st Borneo Carnivore Symposium. The symposium is a collaboration between the Leibniz Institute for Zoo & Wildlife Research (IZW) in Germany and of course the Sabah Wildlife Department (SWD). This is the first symposium (on wildlife) being conducted in Sabah with the theme "Road Towards Conservation Action Plans". 
My BCS teatime was used to 'photographing' ;)
I must say that I am grateful to be able to meet some of the well known scientists and researchers on conservation that come from different part of the world. The symposium is divided in to 2 main parts ; Part I and Part II. One of the goal is to define potential conservation areas and to develop immediate strategies on long term conservation of the carnivore species in Borneo.
I am more than glad to be involved as one of the many participants in this symposium,even though I know nothing much about conservation( my actual field background is Environmental Engineering), but it has pretty much gives me the idea of what is actually going on with the wildlife and the status of the forests not only in Sabah but the whole island of Borneo.
Sundaland Clouded Leopard- it does look like one of my cats back at home:)
I am impressed on how the speaker could talk continuously without having to pause or think what to say or answer as if everything is already written in their mind (they are the experts anyway, of course they can speak very well). Should I be given a chance to study one of the carnivores in Borneo I would pick the wild cats specifically the Sundaland Clouded Leopard as my choice. Why? It's just probably because I like cats, and yes I do have many of 'em ( by this I am meaning to say the domestic cats not the wild one!). 
If it's not the wild cats, then perhaps it will be the otters specifically the small clawed Asian Otter. Why? Because they look like cats???.. LOL. Anyway they are cute and cuddly but be bear in mind that these animal are actually carnivores that could ripped out your hand once you touch them (well okay, on second thought, they are cute but they are not cuddly).
The Small Clawed Asian Otter (I have actually met the owner of this picture who is also a specialist in otter)-I heart this picture because the otters look like (again) one of my cats:)

I am supposed to join the rest of the participants and speakers for an evening party at Mamutik Island today before they continue the symposium at Rasa Ria on Thursday. But due to my not-so-very good- health condition, I just had to cancelled my participation of the party. The closing ceremony will be held at Rasa Ria Resort. 
What I have to say about this symposium is, I think it's an eye-opener and a good exposure as well as experiences for those who knows nothing much about the carnivores, and perhaps conservation (obviously like me)and a good effort to make the conservation action plans a reality!

It's been a while since I last indulged myself in arts (that was a few years back). And now I'm kinda missing doing it. This is one of the pictures I've made recently, the only difference is, this time I'm doing it digitally.

A Day at the 'E' Unit


So i went to the Endoscopy unit last few days-i was diagnosed positive with h.pylori and the fact that i'm having gastric, made it worst, so the doc called me to undergo treatment, unfortunately one of the procedure is to do the endoscope- I hate it.

There were a number of patient waiting for their turn (including me). One of the patient is a middle age man who looked so worried after knowing what exactly the doctor will do in the procedure. Being a first timer, of course, we were kept wondering how it feels, is it painful? I had some answers from those who had gone through it before, and i'm just not sure if they were just merely trying to scare us or they were actually telling the truth.  

And so it was my turn (i was the last patient). I kept on praying they could give me sedative to knock me out before inserting the tube. Unfortunately, I was not given any, and there i was, wide awake laying on my side with my mouth wide opened. 
This was the thing inserted into my tummy via my throat, looks pretty scary.


Was it painful? Oh yes, definitely, that i didn't realized i started shed tears due to the pain inside my lung as soon as i was asked to swallow the tube. I could feel the tube made its way down from my throat, lung and my tummy. I felt it twisting and moving, felt like a monster was trying to rip off my tummy to get out. 

The whole procedure took about 20 minutes, how i wished there is a better way to do it, or at least use a smaller diameter of endoscope. But on second thoughts, having to swallow the endoscope is far more better than having to endure pain caused by critical gastric. So my advice to all those of you who doesn't want to end up in the E Unit with a 1 meter tube stuck in your lungs and tummy, you better watch out with what you feed your tummy as the saying goes prevention is better than cure. 

P/s: i guess i should make Healthy Food as my BFF (LOL), but it's just so much easier to choose the unhealthy ones, *sigh* i hate to have to choose.

@kin

He had a circumcision today at the veterinary clinic.He was scared, of course, he had no idea of what was going on. We left him under the vet care for half a day, and I was glad to see him doing perfectly fine (though he's still weak).I'm sure he'll be wondering or perhaps feeling like he's missing one of his 'body-part' once he is fully recovered. 

The son and daughters
Kadot
Gipu
Siam
We call the 1st 'lil fella Kadot (derived from the word Polka dot- because he has so many little tiny black dots on his arms, belly and feet. And the one trying to touch the camera is Gipu (a friend of mine gave this name to her, derived from two dusun words Gitom and Purak, combined, hence the unique name). The last one is Siam, the odd one out:). We Suspected, that these three little kittens are the kids of the big daddy who just got his circumcision and obviously these kittens will be his only ancestor:).They have the resemblance except for Siam, she's the odd one out:).

It has been raining cats and dogs lately especially in the evening but i just knew  that it was going to be a bright sunny evening that day, so i packed my cam and short and flip-flop with me.

I head off to one of the nearest seaside from my house.My plan was to take some sunset photographs, but i guess sunset didn't turn out beautifully as i was expecting that evening, yet, i can still see the glimpse of it hidden behind the clouds:)

just another thoughts on music....

I fell in love with the piano since my childhood
I played the keyboard (no, not the computer keyboard) until early morning today, because I just couldn't concentrate on playing any melody with my niece and nephew kept on pressing the other keys on the keyboard. So I waited until they slumbered  into their 'dreamland'. So I continued playing my favorite piano pieces. No, I don't call myself an expert in piano, I don't really 'read' music notes, I don't even attend any piano classes. I play by ear, and play whatever songs that's inside my mind. Have I ever composed a song? I guess, yeah.. Sometimes I don't even know what song I'm actually playing, because I'm letting my emotion flows through my finger and spontaneously play a song. It may sounds crappy, it may sounds beautiful, but what ever it is, I'm just expressing myself/feelings. Yes, I do envy with those who could play the piano 'properly' ( by this I'm referring to being able to read the musical notes), wishing I could do what they can. But I guess, there's no reason to envy, as I realize, the fact that I'm not able to read musical note properly, had me thinking that I am actually 'better' than them (who relies a lot on the note).I don't need musical notes. And I just thought that, music played by those who play by ear and by heart,sounds more 'beautiful' compare to those who are struggling reading the music notes....

Skadoosh!!!

Oh yes, he's cute,he's furry and plushy,he's black and white, he loves eating, he's funny,he's overweight and clumsy. Meet Po,the big, fat panda!

"Get ready to feel the thunda!"

I had a good time watching him in the second Kung Fu Panda where he fights alongside the Furious Five. He has to confront his past when Lord Shen serves as a threat to Kung Fu and tries to conquer all of China. Since the first film, Po has pretty much overcome the physical challenges of Kung Fu, this time having to face its spiritual challenges when he is afflicted by vague images from his past.


"I'm not the big fat panda, I am the big fat panda,Skadoosh!"


What I like most about this particular panda is he's personality, an easygoing, and can often be playful and cocky like a big kid. He's clumsy, portly, and having low self-confidence, only dreaming he could be a great Kung Fu warrior while feeling stuck in his unfulfilling life at his his father‘s noodle shop. But when given the chance, he is all too eager to learn Kung Fu the hard way, enduring physical beatings as well as insults, in hopes of changing who he is and becoming like the Furious Five, who are his idols. But Po finds the inner strength to save the Valley of Peace by using his own skills and ingenuity, and in the end he becomes his own kind of hero. Simple and good-natured, Po doesn't seem to hold grudges, even against those who doubt him or treat him with contempt :)

I've seen some of the comments made by some reviewers on this animation, most of it says that it is a good movie and I don't really quite understand on some comments saying that this movie is a waste of time, stupid, and so on. Well, for me it's a good action-packed animated story. Worth seeing and enjoyable.

One thing I noticed, other than the "if you believe in yourself, then you can..." was that it encourages you to have a little faith in the most unsuspecting of people. We all can at times be the critic and limit each other, but this film challenges that. Again I thought it was great and I believe that by believing in ourselves and others then world can only become a better place.
