I had a bad day. Yup, bad day. The driving instructor just had to call me at 7.40 a.m. and deprive me of my additional 20 minutes rest. And on top of that, he was late. =.=

Well, putting that aside, I planted the seedlings(sunflower of course XD) into separate pots, 9 of them . Will post some pictures tomorrow. And there are 10 more seeds germinating as I type this XD.

Someone mentioned that growing "lots and lots of Sunflowers" was kinda weird..... errr I guess it is lah..... for a guy... (or are there any other guys out there sharing the same fascination for Sunflowers? Speak up XD)

And back to the "bad day" issue, I was supposed to watch Alice in Wonderland this evening with my siblings. Yes, was... we were late and our reservation "expired" XD. Hence we drove all the way down just to drive back home. I guess this kitty will have to wait Y.Y


p/s: I need a job..... holiday killsssssssss. Also, I love the weather nowadays. Rain FTW =D

Long Exposure

Green ball??? o.O
Well, my cousin, brother and I tried this out today, long exposure photography. The concept is simple, really. First, you just need to open the shutter long enough to capture light and movements, etc. etc. I'm not too well versed with that anyway. Still, it was fun.

For this, we attempted to create a light-saber using err, light. But as you can see, the light source was too small and the light-saber got crooked somehow =.=

And for this, we tried a combination of both multiple exposures and light painting. Pretty cool huh?
Oh, and before I forget. Credits to Ray Ng for his awesome cam. LOL

Sunflower Love


Yup, I've started growing them again, for a second time. I bought both the Teddy Bear variety and the normal ones (Sunrich I think, not sure).

A lesson learnt from the previous attempt is that giving more isn't always the best. The seedlings died of Damping-off disease, a fungal disease caused by over-watering and poor drainage. To make things simple, I killed them because I watered too frequently.

Somehow this just reminds me of "Too Much Love Will Kill You" a line from a Queen's song with the same phrase as its title.

Too much love kills.
Not only flowers but animals, humans and everything.

I remember how I used to indulge my dog with salty food meant for human. Guess what happened to her?

You got it, her fur dropped. You thought you care by giving everything. The truth is, the excess love, care, items, food and feelings you shower them with will only do more harm than good. Overkill.

When a parent does it to a child, they spoil the child.
Do it to your pet, it gets sick.
To plants, you rob them of oxygen.
To humans, you invade their personal space.

So, the next time you care for something, be it a flower, a rabbit, a cat, a dog, a guy or a girl, always remember that you probably shouldn't put too much feelings into it. Do it in moderation. Excess love and care is suffocating, as much as undrained water is to a plant. Or at least that is what I learnt.

That being said, I hope that my sunflowers don't die this time.

Oh, and I think I'll do a time-lapse video once the seedlings sprout.
