Mutated Drosophila melanogaster

I’ve been dealing with many Drosophila flies lately and they’re pretty small to me. For the sake of genetics, I killed quite many flies… *guilty* But I didn’t expect that these flies would come back and haunt the Bio students….

A GIANT MUTATED DROSOPHILA flew into the class today…

It has got black eye gene, vestigial wings (or rather, wing-less) and it’s definitely scary… Most importantly, you must know how to identify male and female flies…

In genetics, you identify the minute Drosophila by looking at the tail of it. If it’s dark, then it’s a male, and if it’s just normal bands, they’re female… Oddly, this mutated giant Drosophila seemed to have different phenotypes (characteristics) for male and female…

Male Drosophila, without fangs…


Female Drosophila, with the fangs jutting out…

Haha, that’s just Yong’s windbreaker… kinda cool actually. He got it from UK last winter and everyone definitely had fun with it.

Who says UTAR is not a good place to shoot photos?

Well, some people think that equipments are more important than composition… and having a beautiful scene is more important that looking around for eye-catchy stuffs…

Take a look at these…

Courtesy of Elle, thanks for allowing me to take photographs for you.

UTAR ON FIRE!!! HELP! HELP! – No la… the id**t insect terminator guy fogged the whole area about 5.30 pm…. when the students were still in UTAR. Apparently, they’re trying to kill the students…. not the insects.

Somewhere outside the main office building… go discover the place yourself! You’ll find lots of fascinating stuffs to shoot.

So please, pay a little more attention to your surrounding and I’m sure you’ll find some interesting stuffs… slow down and be prepared!

Some maths…

I got this email some time ago and I’d like to share it with you guys…

Calculation 1:

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 987 65
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

Calculation 2:

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10 = 1111111111

Calculation 3:

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888

Calculation 4:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

See how beautiful maths is… I hope you’re awed by the numbers and order of it…

Friends’ Group Photos Shoot for Moral Assignment

Yeah, I know I know… the title is too long.

Anyway, I didn’t expect that such a short photo shoot can unveil so many unseen potentials… Such as acting and pole dancing… with formal wear!

Outing with Jeffery, Hao Xue and other Friends!

After genetics test yesterday, a few of us went out to Bukit Bintang area and hung out till late night yesterday.

It’s great to have Jeffery, Hao Xue and other friends around… since they’ve already gone to Kampar.

We had lunch at the Golden Esquire Restaurant, Sungei Wang Plaza… and shopped around.

Here are some group photos.

This is the photo of the day.

I went into this shop in Sungei Wang, called Yokoso! and took a photo of the Japanese dolls…

Beautiful indeed!

As for today, I had a photo shoot of models in the morning. Sorry, I wouldn’t be sharing any photos of them just yet. Will post the photos up once the permission to publish is granted.

So, stay tuned ya!

I’m sick…

I’m sick of my life…

I’m sick of people wasting my time…

I’m sick of being so busy in my life…

I’m sick of people trying to make my life miserable…

I’m sick of being tired…

I’m sick of not getting enough time to do all my stuffs…

I’m sick of this challenge…

I’m just sick… so when can this sickness stops?

When can I get the deserving time I need?

When can I finally slow down and enjoy life for a moment?

When can I live a life I appreciate most?


I’m busy with things, not for the community but for school, for clubs, for friends…

I’m busy with meeting deadlines rather than doing what I love most…

I’m just busy…

Taking things seriously…. WHEN CAN I REALLY BREATH FOR A WHILE?


Yesterday was tzu ching’s activity night. We had a late celebration of chinese new year and it was definitely fun to have everyone there. The food was delicious and the crowd was energetic.

Here is the receptionist counter and the food for enjoyment.

After a short ice-breaking session, we had our dramas on… Here are some of the photos during the drama…

Then, we have our very cute 学长 and 学姐 having fun around at the back of the audience when we were indulged in the chinese new year song...

The MCs of the day!

Then our Tzu Ching mommy gave us some speech and ang pau… haha

Finally, the group photos…

So I guess everyone enjoyed themselves very much. I hope those who attended too love the fun and games. See you guys again soon!

I know that Elle had to celebrate her valentine’s day at home… alone… but the roses she received from her friend are just… BEAUTIFUL!

Take a look at these…!!

The photos are a bit colour distorted when you enlarge them, this is due to low lighting condition with extremely high ISO of 1600.

Never-the-less, the roses are mind-blowingly beautiful!
