Metamorphosis, A Truly Amazing Process

My level of understanding on metamorphosis basically stops at primary school level. Different insect species have their own unique cycles to go through before full growth. For butterfly, it starts with egg, after hatching, it will emerge as a larvae. Going through feeding on plants/ leaves, it will then turn into pupa, a form of cocoon, to protect itself from predators before emerging as a new buttery. 



I did consider to be a biologist, but eventually, dreams changed. Anyway, this was a very lucky moment for me when I found a colourful and naughty caterpillar/ larvae munching on my cacti in Ipoh. I straightaway told my mom, don't kill it because those cacti will surely grow again. But butterfly only live on for such a short time.

Tiny Planets Made From Your Phone (^^)

Oh crap, I missed my own blog anniversary on the 1st of Jan 2019, bad owner I am! I can't believe I abandon my bloggie like that again. Nowadays, blogs are basically a dying trend........

Anyhow, I first discovered how to take a TINY PLANET photosphere using my Google Nexus 4 phone. Using phones to do this can be quite troublesome and result in inaccurate 360° photosphere stitch. Therefore, nowadays, there comes a 360° camera which saves a lot effort and time in processing the image. But still, as I am a frugal guy and I do enjoy spending my time taking 360° using my handphone, I still stick to my now-Samsung Note 5 to do this.

How to be a winner tip#8: Boyzone Live 25th Anniversary Malaysia Tour

It was 23th August 2018, an unknown phone call came through as I was under the hustle and bustle of KL city. I vaguely heard: "You have won our consolation prize, can you kindly collect ticket from our office". I thought it was tickets for the Circus performance.

#8: Keep a record of the contests you joined! It can prevent some frauds! 

As I reached the destination, this was what I saw:

Pasar Seni Central Market 1888 Exploration

To be frank, even though years of commuting and departing from Pasar Seni LRT, I have really yet stepped foot into the famous Central Market Pasar Seni, established in 1888. After 10 years in KL/PJ, finally, accompanying my parents, I finally touched down on this ground. Direction: you can drive and park at the Central Market or take local transportation and get down from Pasar Seni LRT. For more images, check out my [facebook album]. This was before we headed to Sangkee Prawn Noodles for lunch.
