Whoa! Thats really nice. The grounds kind of remind you of New Zealand's territory. Which made me think about the UAV during ThunderWarrior. Damn sad, maybe if they strapped a camera to a bird would have been a better success. (and cheaper too)
I never thought of it that way but that's so true. The bird is cheaper, less suspicious and clearly flies better. A camera won't be as good as the eagle's eyes though. In the TV program, Tilly spotted the human target in green jacket in the grass more than a mile away!

It's about time to start looking for another show to catch. The following caught my attention. Anyone else interested please contact me yah.
oh Carmen looks nice to watch. I haven't watched a proper opera in ages since Aida came to Singapore. The Aria recital looks quite good. Haha a colleague was selling the Fairy's Kiss tickets in my office awhile ago. Deadline is over though.
I've never seen an opera before. I wanted to catch Die Walkure before I left Toronto but I missed the deadline for that. I'm more inclined towards Carmen, so you interested? I don't want to miss the early bird discount.

Astronomers have been arguing over whether Pluto and other roundish Kuiper Belt objects should be considered planets for a couple of years now. I've always thought they would eventually drop Pluto from the list of planets considering how small it is and how it looks just like another thing in the Kuiper Belt.

A good day. The late afternoon was cool with a light breeze, excellent weather for a slow 6km jog in the park. On my way home after the run, I saw Wendy, my ex-piano teacher, carrying her daughter who must be in kindergarten by now. I haven't seen her for a while but she looked pretty much the same as she did a decade ago when I was still taking piano lessons. Yeah, she's one of the rarer women who didn't turn into an "auntie" after having children...yet.
I initially had trouble finding books because the fiction ones were just bad romance novels and non-fic ones were either old travel guides or computer programming textbooks. However I still managed to get some interesting titles...went off with 9 books! Surprisingly most those I took home were non-fic books on business.
Quite a lot of good fiction ended on the side of the hall where people throw away books that didn't make their "second round" of selection. After the first two hours, most of the can-make-it books migrated to the mountains of books at the sides.

Besides National Day, the earlier part of August has also some historically significant dates, such as my primary school classmate's birthday...just kidding. Two dates come to mind.

Here's a nice song. They should make it a National Day theme song one of these years.
