[ 15022010 7.13pm | MORE alaska pics ]

i was reading clubsnap... and i came aross a post on alaska in the winter. it looks gorgeous...
i WILL go back in the winter.
i WILL. one day.
but in the meantime... here are more of my summer alaska trip pics. =)

holding a piece of glacier. a glacier melts in a really cute way... little pieces sort of pop off like ice cubes.
in juneau, they used to harvest glacier ice to put in their beers cos it takes a longer time to melt, and its really cold
but its now banned cos the glaciers are receeding due to global warming.

there's the glacier i took a piece of ice from.
the murky river put my mum off walking towards the glacier. haha.
my toes nearly froze off walking through it barefoot.
thats my dad on the right. he looks like he's peeing. oh well.

thats me after braving the subzero river waters, at the toe of the Exit Glacier in Seward.
i look so bedraggled.
the wind coming down from the glacier is also extremely cold.
made all my old creaky athritic joints hurt. gg.
dad and i!
we were standing on the balcony of our cruise ship.
i was getting tired of trying to aim the camera to catch myself and the scenery...
so i just took the reflection of our balcony door.
daddy got gosu camera. i don't have..
see... so tiring to aim yourself and the background into the pic...
this is what happens when you forget to put on your camera flash - your face ends up shadowed.
but the scenery is nice!
Juneau. beautiful sunset.
caught a bit of the boats balcony in the pic so i'd remember where i took the pic.
parents were watching some live show in the theatre on the boat... i was mucking around in the room.

skagway on the yukon railway.
scary rickety bridges.
and an old train.
me wearing my mum's hat, looking pleased.
still on the yukon railway.
it was really hot.
no other purpose to posting this pic other than to let people criticize my spotty face.
i was eating mega alot of nonsense!!

tarantula vs bird

i never realised how self righteous some people can get, until i read the comments for this video.
it is fascinating to watch nature in action. it is fascinating to watch animals kill each other, mate with each other, hunt each other, eat together... etcetc.
but if i were to put it down to curiosity of the spider's owner - he wanted to see what would happen - then i think that ignorance and curiosity on his part are lame excuses.
from the comments, spiders CAN eat birds, but not in excessive amounts due to the high calcium content. well, its just ONE chick. there's no indication whether the spider was on its 5th chick or whether its the first chick the owner ever gave it.
most of the commentors took issue with feeding it a chick. a BABY BIRD which hadnt any chance to see the world. you're all personifying a bird ffs. animals are animals, humans are humans.
and if you're so concerned about animal rights, then what about the mouse or the cricket you're recommending in place of the chick ? lol ? those aren't animals?
and who are YOU, or WE as HUMANS to determine an animals' rights?

[ 07022010 11.38pm | hmm. ]

this is the time. for a YOU post.
i'm glad you've turned around. its nice to see that you're coming to your senses.
you're just, in all generality (is that a word?) not there.
i can't decide whether i wanna kill you, or befriend you.
most of the time you surprise me with what i feel about you.
you might be what i classify as fking dumb and someone i'd willingly throttle, but. always the but.
as bad as you think you are, i just can't see it.
you're getting too full of yourself, you needa take a step back.
you're part of a good memory.
and i wanna turn you into a memory.
and i wish you weren't even in my memory.
you needa make up your mind, cos there's only so many times i can tahan the same thing.
you drive me nuts, but its nuts i put up with. again and again.
with you, anything is possible!!!
as usual, don't ask, and i won't elaborate.
ok ok... THANKS CYN for the INSPIRATION.
have a good flight back, and come back soon.

[ 04022010 9.25pm | controversy ]

hey man. why focus on the one player who isnt playing, when there are FIVE players who played!
is everyone just waiting for some juicy controversy about how i
a) fell out with the team, and quit at the last moment, so i didnt play
b) was too noob, so i was benched
c) felt that the opponent was too noob so the team didnt need me to play
d) insert whatever interesting conspiracy theory you are having
would it shoot me/us to instant fame if i/we decided to bitch about our opponents and the organisers and whine about how unfair and biased they were, and how sore they were?
why doesnt anyone wanna hear about how hospitable everyone was, what a good, close fight we had, and how everything fit together perfectly with excellent timing like a gift from heaven? like a sweet dream come true?

thats my theory anyway.
well, sorry to disappoint you all, you won't be getting any controversial statements from me (this time).
it was a great trip =)
and i mean that from the bottom of my heart.
perfect. muah~

[ 03022010 2.28pm | postlunchearlgrey. ]

its gotten cold, but it still tastes great.
reminds me of the xlb shop in shanghai with their hong cha...
i can't even begin to talk about shanghai. there's just too much that i'm feeling and thinking about it.
the trip was great. perhaps, better than i expected and hoped for.
unfortunately there's only one thing that can turn the "perhaps" into "it WAS". and that one thing is TIME.

its like the weather is reversed - cold indoors, hot outside. as opposed to warm indoors, winter air outdoors.
i'm addicted to winter clothing... all the layers and boots. =D and of course... long black sleek coats. *sighs happily
*digression - i just got a fantastic song from my colleague. i know what i don't like about it... but generally it fits (OMGOSH I ACTUALLY TYPED "FEEDS"  ACCIDENTALLY) my mood.*
i ate alot, slept alot, and got stressed out alot.
my aims there were all accomplished. but because of the trip, i have new aims. *sneaky smile.
and i'm pleased to announce that my bb has its data plan back up and running. it was sucky not to have msn on the go! my other bb is just... not the same for web surfing and msning. =\ starhub is not bad la! they settled my complaint withing 24hrs.
i only have ONE conclusion to make after the trip.
and that is : jon should have been born a girl.
more elaboration on that after work...
