You Are a Pinky

You are fiercely independent, and possibly downright weird.
A great communicator, you can get along with almost anyone.
You are kind and sympathetic. You support all your friends - and love them for who they are.

You get along well with: The Ring Finger

Stay away from: The Thumb

I'm a WHAT?! Pinky?! Owh well, in a way it's true as to what the description says. Hehehe.. :P

the air car?

Well 4 weeks have passed, which means I'm halfway through doing my internship with WWF-Malaysia. I never expect that it would be somewhat a bit laid back here, but at the same time, I didn't expect that I wouldn't be able to do anything about my final year project. *sigh* I was really hoping that I get to carry out the study on hawksbill turtle here. Just wait and see how the future holds. Speaking of which, I was stumbling through YouTube, and I watched this very interesting clip. I think it's the only answer to make people limit the use of petrol cars and of course, making the environment much cleaner. So have a look and see for yourself.....

Happy Mother's Day

Well I'm feeling much better than before, but I still got the light coughs and the running nose that's giving me the deep sexy voice. Hehehe... The night I went to the hospital, at first my blood pressure read 165 over 111. Now that's freaking high, because the normal range is 120 over 80. However, after I had another blood pressure measure taken, it read 135 over 75. Well I guess it's still OK considering my obesity. So yeah, no more fry cook meals. I really miss doing some steam cooking.

Anyway, today's Mother's Day, so don't forget to let your mummy know how much they mean to ya. I just hope my mum would talk to me for a while after that incident with the evil twin. That jerk really gets on my nerves and I pray to Allah may that guy get to see the light of his wrong-doing and the fact that he ought to apologize to my sister for being such a bad sibling. Anyhow, since today is Mother's Day, I wanna share with y'all this video from Happy Slip Productions. This Kristine gal is so good with her work, I'm not suprise if she's gonna be big in the future. I sure miss the the sweet life in Manila....

feeling sick.... :(

Great.. Now I'm feeling sick... I haven't been diagnosed yet, but I plan to go to the hospital later tonight.. I don't trust the rural clinics here because there's no doctor present there, but there are medical officers. I prefer to be treated from a person who carries the M.B.,B.S degree.
And Azri, I hope you'll get well soon buddy.

Pics taken so far...

Well it's been 2 weeks since I've done my internship with WWF-Malaysia in Malacca. So I'm just gonna post up some pics that I've taken so far. Just click on the picture if to view the actual size of the picture.
The folks over at WWF-Malaysia in Malacca:
Azri and me in the Pajero...

From left to right: Sel, See Liong, Arvind (Programme Trainee), Yaya, Kama, and Azri. We wanted to watch Spiderman 3, but unfortunately the tickets got sold out. So we all end up just enjoying the day having our brunch at McDonalds.
From left to right: Yaya, Ernest (Community Officer), Min Min (Project Team Leader). Min Min is our supervisor, and she's really fun to have an interesting chat with.That's Grace at the right side of the picture. She's also the Programme Trainee here at Malacca.

This is Shakira, the Pajero used by WWF-Malaysia in Malacca. How she got her name, I have no idea. Hehe..
Pics taken from Pulau Upeh:

Sign board at Pulau Upeh, and to me, it's the Spooky Island.

Whenever we spot a nest, we would immediately transfer the eggs from the original nest to this blue bucket. Then the eggs are carefully placed into the styrofoam box for incubation. At the same time, 10 samples of the eggs are measured in terms of their diameter and weight.At times, we also inspect the hawksbill turtle to see if there's any commensal species such as barnacles. In this one, this poor mother had a barnacle found on her face, but we managed to take it off.Below are two of my favorite pics of I've taken of the hawksbill turtle. Both are two different individuals.

time off...

Dang.. I almost got myself lost driving in Bandar Melaka just a while ago. Although, it was a good ride for me, better than having to finish dinner early and end up having a boring night. I wanted to go take Azri and Yaya for dinner at this food court where Azri and I ate for the first time since arriving in Melaka. Unfortunately, I missed a turn and instead got myself end up near to the A'Famosa Fort; which was kinda kewl because now I know the way to there. Hehe...

Well tonight I'm having the time off from going to Pulau Upeh since I've been there for 3 nights straight. See Liong has been enjoying his break too long, and finally I get to sleep in comfort where I don't have to worry about the sand flies. I recently have a new allergy now, which is sand flies bites. Comparing to everyone else, the bites I get from the sand flies tend to swell pretty bad after a day, and now my right arm looks like a map of the constellation of the stars. :P Owh well, the price to pay in the profession of conservation. Speaking of which....

Ever since I got here, I've had the chance to witness all of the nesting actitvities that has occured at Pulau Upeh. It's like I'm always there when the turtle is about to nest. As you can see on the picture below, this was taken precisely when the turtle was laying the egg. That's Yaya's
head and just busy watching the turtle laying her eggs. The eggs are collected from the nest and transfer into the styrofoam box that y'all can see on the left. Anyway, I would love to tell some more, but I'm gonna save that for next time. Plus, I'm so darn tired. Hehe.. Nite nite y'all! ^_^
