Silence

Mannn

Most people generally only see the talk-a-lot-of-crap side of me, but hey i digress. I can be at a total silence when i want to. See i’m older now, i only show my joker-esque side to some friends. See somewhere along the path of my life i’ve changed to a quieter and reserved person, but i can’t let go of my funny side too. Which is good too, such starking difference in both personality, i love it.

The other day i was reading this post. Man is this guy right or what, i agree completely with what he/she said. Many questions in life can be answered in just one or two words. Heh i do agree that people who goes on and on about things i don’t care about is irritating.

There is a difference between genuine pouring out of one’s heart looking for empathy, and just talk about things in your life that i don’t generally care about. I mean seriously if you want good sound advice, harsh judgements and repotire of sarcastism¬† then i’m your man. Telling me about how your friends excel in basketball or whatever, i try but i really can’t get myself to care much about it, seem to me like you’re just showing off your friends.

If we can only be silent for just at least a few moments a day and enjoy the moment. Even when you’re not silent, only say words that has meaning to them.

Deep deep blue

So after blogging about the NASA, it got me thinking.

Space is big, really really big. Who know what lurks out there in the deep black abyss right ? You know what else is a deep black abyss ? The sea.

Its kinda interesting if you think about it. We’re exploring space and all that, but there is a deep sea level that we don’t really know anything about. I mean have you seen the fishes that live down there, i hesitate to use the word fish because they might as well be aliens. I mean seriously, they live so deep that light can barely penetrate the water. No lights !

Under under the sea

Just look at this, you know what is the first thing i’ll do when i see that little sucker ? This.

Hello i am a hatc- BOOM HEADSHOT !!

Its like that scene from that alien movie where the main character finds out they having been creating clone hybrid alien human version of her, and the failed clones begged her to kill them, thats the kind of impression they give me. Gawd. Just look at that face !

Anyway apparently this fish lives in the twilight zone. What the fuck, fuck. When i was young there was a paranormal thriller called the twilight zone, and i just sortof linked twilight zone to alternative dimension where strange bizarre things and creature resides. I guess i got it right afterall.

A show in regards to deep sea life-forms should use that intro.

Wow just wow, just look at them. You just can’t help being amazed and somewhat shocked. Some of them really look alien dont they ?

Just check out the fish called megamouth shark( lolz sounds like my classmate phyllis) on wikipedia.

Oh god that scares the hell out of me. The mouth too, i mean WTF THAT IS ONE BIG MOUTH. MEGA BIG MOUTH ! ( puns intended )

Look at the skin and everything, thats totally like the aliens from Alien, erm you know … that alien movie. As in alien versus predator that alien, jeez come to think of it couldn’t they pick a better name for the species. What the hell is that whisker thing anyway ?

Not an optical illusion

This is seriously another one of those WTF ( What the fish ! < Puns intended >). If you take a closer look at that picture, it looks like this fish isn’t really that far off from the water surface. Just look at the size of that thing, and it can swim at such a water surface level ? I swear if i was swiming halfway at sentosa then i saw this fish, i’ll just die there instantly from the shock. If i saw a ghost then at least i’ll still be scared and run away screaming or something, but this fish ? Instant death. But then again this fish doesn’t live that deep now does it ?

I don’t know why but in my mind it looks like the fish is talking to the person. =\

Most of the scary underwater creature i’m talking about lives deep down, where the water pressure is at a neigh high. For them to live so deep their body must be tough and endurance high. Think of their lungs or heart pumping, it has to be several times stronger then a human. Well thats what i think anyway. Its remarkable if you think about it. Some of them have lightbulbs on their head, who came up with lightbulbs first ? Edison or mother nature ?

Motherfucking nature thats who

Its just so amazing. I wonder if human ever got to the deepest they can go ? Is it all just water at that level ? Is there a solid ground to reach if you keep going downwards ? Or it is a straight line from one point of the earth to the opposite side with nothing in between ? No that can’t be right since earth has a core, what is at the core ? A hidden land with dinosaurs and other weird creature ? Lava ? Wonka’s chocolate factory ?

Check these websites out where i got those pictures ( open your eyes to fascinating sea creatures ):

Ultimate Dragontug ’08

Well today was the ultimate dragontug 08 showdown, it was very awesome.

So i met up with Eugene and we made our way there to singapore river. It was fairly crowded, however the individual teams made up the bulk of the crowd, and taking the dragonboat helpers into account, there was only a handful of civilian spectators.


Oh wow cool, i’m watching the news as i’m typing this and i saw the PLK paddlers on the news ! I think it was the final round. The news mention that it was a mix of chinese dragonboat and viking boating !

VIKING !! So when are we going to raze villages and take in their man as slaves and capture their woman ?

Er.. ahem anyway, it totally suck that the 2 match i was in both lose, my goodness i’m like some sort of jinx or something. But hey the PLK paddlers won in the end ! You know i never expect that PLK paddlers to be this strong, they surprise me truly. They are much better then they seem, i know that now.

It was a pretty fun event, here are some pictures i took with my handphone depicting some of the interesting things.

“Hey lets go under the water, its fun !”

“RAWR”

Yea well this teaches us not to mess with the merlion, he/she is one hardcore *********er ! This reminds me, tomorrow is mother’s day so dont forget to do something nice for your mom, she did raise you from a squirming little red meshy meat into what you are today ! Give her a kiss and tell her you love her ! Its the right thing to do, ahem anyway ….

One of the important thing about the dragon-tug is the capturing of the flag, it’s the duty of the drummer to reach out and grab the flag, whoever grabs the flag first wins, or a default win is claimed when a minute has passed, or something like that. So Eugene was the drummer in one of the match, i can only imagine what is going through his head.

Whew okay

But it was all cool since Eugene grabbed the flag in the end, his pasta-ish arm did good ! I have the picture of him with the flag but god i’m too tired to upload it now, beside it wouldn’t be half as funny as my sloppy paint edit of the pictures anyway. I should probably make a rar file and upload it to mediafire or something.

Then there was a long break and the dragon-boat helpers from don’t-know-what organistation. They set up this ergometer station, icebox station and this vertical throw the waterbottle dart station. All mini-game, most of the prizes involves beer. God i hate beer, sure i can withstand the first half of the can, but then the taste of it just gets so … bitter and overall sucky. When the beer is warm, damn the suckage meter really hits the max.

The icebox station one was cool, you get to submerge yourself in this large box filled with ice cubes, imagine polar bear diving into the water in the northpole, except you’re not a polar bear, and you will probably walk out as a popsicle stick. I kinda wanted to go in as the weather was hot, you can imagine how tempting the icy water is ! Well anyway i didn’t really took much picture of the first 2 mini game. But i did get some shot of the third.

See the horizontal black board ? Well there is layers of circle at the end of it ala dart boards, the middle of the board gives you 100 point, and as it goes further to the outer layer the score decreases, 50, 40 , 30 , 20. The winner ( that is the highest score ) is awarded with a new balance shade ! So Calvin spent like 30 mins keep on practicing, didn’t really end well, he was probably too intoxicated.

I guess i forgot to mention this but players have to bottoms up a glass of that horse-piss beer, then turn 10 rounds before hurtling the marker to the circle. Here’s sam trying her luck:

Fun mini-games really. Did i mention some of the girls there were hot hot hot ! Especially this japanese team girl, gosh she looks hot. Not cute though, cute and hot is way different yet people always confuse them. Come evening there was also this fashion model showcase or something. One of the model was hot and CUTE, damn !

<_<

>_>

Ahem anyway choon hoe aka winsor aka kirin aka godknowswhatotheraliashehas was also there. Seems like hes the oarsman for the event under sava. Funny i just brought a paddle from sava yesterday.

Please compare

Wow thanks Eugene, i guess we now know whose the better cameraman !

Well all in all it was a fufilling day, i’m happy for the paddlers for what they have accomplished, we had fun and i got to know them a bit better. I gotta test out my new paddle, it worked nicely i might add. I expected a lot more paddlers to turn up but well i guess we have our own schedule to keep to.

Heres somemore picture from the event hohoho

Whew okay i’m usually more long winded but im getting sleepyy
