    If you pretend to be good, the world takes you very seriously. If you pretend to be bad, it doesn't. Such is the astounding stupidity of optimism.

    Earth Day 22nd April 2009 Share

    As a follow-up to Earth Hour 2009, I'm also celebrating Earth Day. To show my appreciation, I'm putting up the Earth Day header (which I spent half a day making!!!) on my blog for at least one week starting today, as well as do the little things I can do to make it easier on Mother Earth...

    ...and that probably means shorter shower-time, less TV-watching, using the recyclable grocery bag more often, sleeping withOUT the night lamp (yikes!) and maybe even less internet surf time - just maybe...

    Anyhow, I am scheduling my TV-watching to a limit of one show I would really like to watch - The 11th Hour.

    Hoping you're taking the same initiatives, then. Afterall,
    there is only one Earth...

    Macro on Nikon L16 Share

    Exploring Macro mode on compact. Plenty of flowers to choose from on my front lawn but loved the colors on this. It was quite windy so I couldn't get a really close one without blurring. Will continue to explore...

    Btw, what's this flower called, anyone?

    The Ultimate Foodie Bloggers Challenge Share

    Calling all self-made chefs looking for enthusiastic food-lovers to taste your delicacies, the Ultimate Foodie Bloggers Challenge IS the thing for you.

    Contrary to the name, you don't have to be a blogger to join the challenge. As long as you've got a recipe to submit and a dish to share at the event. Oh, and a big appetite!

    Aside from enjoying good food and drinks, a benefit you will definitely enjoy knowing is that your recipe and those of others will be compiled into a recipe book, which will be on sale during the Special Olympics Carnival on May 3rd, of which all proceeds will go to Special Olympics Brunei Darussalam Fund. (I think you'll get a book for free although I'm not really sure about that.)

    Have I got your fingers twitching to whip up something yummy? Just RSVP to the event here (and for more information) and send your recipe to foodiebloggers@gmail.com before the 22nd19th of April 2009. brought forward to make layout editing easier now that they can have pictures of your dishes included...

    A 7 for a Mac Share

    Gosh, didn't realized some of my links were, uh, "mis-linked"...Got it fixed (I hope) and some other things here..
    Sorry for the problems on the tech-side of things...not an expert, so...go figure.

    On a lighter note, I came across an interview in one of the local mags and found a pretty pathetichilarious response to one of the questions...

    question: On a scale of one to ten, with one being the lowest(...), how "techie" are you?
    answer: A 7 coz I'm a Mac user...

    Oh, really...so does that make Bill Gates a ZERO because he doesn't use Mac???

    p.s: don't get me wrong, I love using Mac - I just didn't know that was the criteria if you wanted to be considered as someone who is "tech-savvy"...duhhh...

    Ultraman & Clan on Vacation Share

    Have you ever wonder where Ultraman takes his family on a vacation? 

    What they would do when they're not saving the planet from giant dinosaur monsters and evil characters in costumes with sinister laughs?

    Well wonder no more...

    Apparently, Papa Ultraman loves swinging his hips to the rhythm of the hula hoop, Mama Ultraman enjoys smashing shuttle corks with her mighty badminton racket, Brother Ultraman can't get enough of splashing around in the pool with the aid of his trusty moose float and Sister Ultraman hits the tennis court like Nadal. The family's fave team sport - FOOTBALL...

    "ole ole-traman"

    p.s: Head over to The Mall to check out Ultraman & family in "action"...

    Velvet Dream Portfolio - The Preview Share

    A test drive of the soft-launching of my art & design portfolio...

    I'm still editing some things here and there and I hope everything goes well in the long run when I finalize them all.

    Took this picture of my cousin, Mona, while we were on the beach, supposedly jogging. Sunset lighting's are always one of the best in natural light and less is needed to get the picture just right. Thanks Mon for gratefully being my model!

    So far, so good - wish me luck!
