The recent man-made disaster arose from Japan has become a more major concern than the deathtoll from tsunami

Yes, although it's saddening to know that so many lives are gone
It's even more saddening how this secondary disaster is causing a world-wide disaster

I'm talking about the nuclear radiation

The radioactive elements that leaked from the damaged plants
are now invading every environment
Be it just next or furthest to the plant
As far as North America

Shocking isnt it?

I'd all these expected

I studied geography
I understand how Coriolos effect works
So it's expected that radioactive particles will eventually reach the other side across the ocean

While it can reach the other side
It must have affected Pacific Ocean some way or another
The marine environment as deep as 40m
All animals affected

I'm not exaggerating!
You know how tiny molecules are
Small surface area:volume has large impact on absorption!

My dad still said he is going to visit Jeju, Korea
He said the particles only reach USA
That the wind blow over to the East
& not to West

Fancy my Dad spoke with wisdom when I was young

I told him that it will affect world-wide
It will keep on blowing in a signle direction
Until all unaffected area be affected
Because the Earth is round

This kinda thing works like diffusion
From a medium of high concentration of particles to a medium of low concentration of particles

It really pissed me off when my Dad insisted his Korea trip
Until a week later (which is now)
News broadcast that Korea & Asia are affected


I admit I'm not modern Nostradamus
But this is by pure science knowledge
It sucks seeing people disagreeing & disapproving my effort to warn them about the possible harm that can occur
Challenged me to becoming an idiot

I then find further supporting evidence to prove that this radiation leak is more disastrous than any other natural disaster

Look at the half-life, everybody

Nope, not the game
I mean, half-life of the radioactive particles
The time taken for the radioactive particles to decay, to become less harmful

There were several types of radioactive elements that had been leaked
Several because no one except the Japanese themselves knows the the exact number of the types of elements they had
They only announced 2 initially
namely Iodine-131 & caesium-137

Luckily, Iodine-131's half-life is only 8 days
& thus, we can all assume that most of it have been decayed, unless there're still storage of this Iodine-131 left 'un-leaked'
Then we have caesium-137
This is more severe because it's half-life is 30years
So by the time a present 5 years old child turns 35
Japan is considered caesium-137 free

The more shocking news came
News showed Japanese nuclear plant's officers bowing non-stop for apology
& announced that other more severe radioactive elements are leaked
such as Plutonium

& Plutonium's half-life is a FUCKING 241000 years!

Given any long-lived person around the world surviving generations & generations
It simply means that the Earth is still gonna be contaminated until 241000 years later

Even the most healthy guy around will just get affected
No matter where he is
Or maybe
Would Earth still exist by then?

I understand how governments are trying their very best to assure everyone that we are safe
& that a little radiation wont hurt

But then everything can be explained by biology
That totally depends if your body is efficient enough to disintegrate & excrete the absorbed particles
If the rate of excretion is slower than the rate of absorption
This promotes bioconcentration
While we gain energy from food sources
The affected food further leads to bioaccumulation
Our whole system is simply imbalanced

Frankly speaking
I'm resigning to this
There's nothing we can do now
Simply cant escape in all manners
Not that I'm awaiting death to fall upon me
But it's time for us to get our ass kicking to do more meaningful things

Since we're in this fate
We shall just go ahead & live

The Japanese affected by tsunami are picking up their lives
So had the Indonesians & Thais since 2007
Nothing is gonna stop us

It would however be good that we all learn from these incidents to be a stronger person
& be grateful for everyday you live

& hope Earth be saved (& safe) soon

I am just giving myself 10 minutes to blog
Because I'd already used up 2 hours since I woke up to do grocery & all sorts
After 12pm
I shall work on my report

My lab is getting more & more rowdy
& I looooooooooove it
Compared to the status of lab 3 years ago
It was dead silent
But now I have labmates (& friends) to talk rubbish to
At least I'm no longer talking to my snails
& problem-solve together

So great fun!

One of our labmates is not entirely participating
While we shared thoughts about how to do good experiments
She couldnt accept what we told her about the inaccurate, illogical & irrelevant procedures in her experiments
She accused us for being racist
& obstracised herself from us
I didnt really care much about what she thought to do this
But I was uneasy initially because that means I'm losing a friend

The next few days came
& surprisingly
I was no longer her friend
She 'unfriend'ed me & the other labmates in Facebook


Other labmates & I discussed the probable issues we could have done to anger her
& thought of trying to 'make friends instead of enemy'
But then we realised that
She is all about herself
Her subconscious mind was telling her that we were against her

& since then
She really treated us like enemy
Never say 'Hello' never say 'Bye'
Only talked to us when she has problems
But so far think she's (i) doing well or (ii) didnt know she is doing everything wrongly because she hasnt talked to us for long

Frankly speaking
I like to help people
& I like to ask people why they do things like that because I DO NOT KNOW WHY YOU WANNA DO THINGS LIKE THAT
I asked because I really do not understand & expect you to enlighten me, not that I want to rebuke
Some people do not think this way
As such
I believe that's why I was also included in the 'unfriend' list even though I dont chat much with her

I am innocent

But seriously
I just shall not put in effort to help such nonsensical person
Only waste my all sorts of cells

I must really agree
Her experiments cannot make it

It's been almost 2 weeks of NO updates
What is new
Facebook has totally taken over any forms of 'broadcast'
I will still try my very best to say something

How about this?



*p/s: no hard feelings. just sharing the joy. ;)

Something is wrong with me today

Early morning
Sent Dardar to work
& then bring Chili to VICOM for IU unit inspection

Got along the way
But took the wrong turn

After IU unit was fixed
Went back home
After I'd parked Chili
I realised I have to update my new IU unit # to HDB
So I drove off again

After the update
Returned home
Parked nicely in carpark
Off engine
Locked doors


Felt totally tok-gong
Because I have never been so tok-gong before!

So I went to DarDar's aunt's place to chit chat for a while
Before I return the car to DarDar for his afternoon lesson

I was quite pleased with today's traffic
Not sure if it is because I'm driving (pretty girls on road has advantages. BWAHHAHAHA)
or everyone was being nice
I got to honk at others because this cockster was not turning right when the green arrow was up!
& imagine that
I was 4 cars behind
4 honks at that cockster, the car behind the cockster, the car behind behind the cockster & the car in front of me
One honk to each

I think what causes accidents nowadays is the driver's failure to signal
In fact
I almost kissed twice
1 on the ass of an Estima
& another of a mini van
Not signalling at junction
Thought they are heading straight!
It's not smart to stop within 3 seconds before turning when the car behind is picking up speed, dont they know that?

Thank Dog I was safe

My 2nd insomnia since I'm back
& I can foresee it's gonna be get frequent when my deadlines are here

It was really irritating not being able to sleep
Not because of panic attack but thoughts kept running through my mind
& the next day
I woke up with heavy head + intense headache

I hope this will be gone soon
& NEVER return
Must try to manage my tasks better than before

I'm so desperate that I'm calling up tour agent for quotations to Phuket
A short relaxation getaway right after my submission of report
But apparently the phone operator was pissing me off
For every word I said
She was unable to listen properly
A 'F' can be heard as 'T'
'Cynthia' as 'Jennifer'
These alphabet/name have entirely different syllabus!
How on Earth could she have done that?!

Can I call her amazing?

Wah biang
Wanna kill myself further

I sometimes hope that people can be much smarter
So unnecessary & nonsensical issues can be avoided

In a blink of an eye
It''s now March


Jan was busy
Feb was fun
March is hell, with lotsa assignments to rush before April

Why does Earth have to spin this fast?

Feb was fabulous
I enjoyed it
Chinese New Year was exciting this year
Since we had invited the lion dance troop to celebrate at DarDar's house
& then I went to Universal Studio Singapore with DarDar to celebrate Valentine's day

Oh this V-day trip is all planned by DarDar
In fact
I'd totally forgotten what's so special about 14 Feb until he showed me the face

USS was fun
Amazingly it was crowded with people even on a weekday
Most of the rides were however too adventurous
Only the brave hearts could take it
DarDar went on Galactica Battlestar TWICE!!

The next Feb week was followed by our Desaru roadtrip
I bought this Pulai Desaru Beach package online at SGD80 for 2d1n
The room was enormously huge!

Although it said garden view, we could still see the sea!

My parents came along too
& they were having fun as well
That's very nice since it had been years I last took them out for short fun
We went go-karting, fishing @ kelong, firefly cruise & seafood dinner

The durians we bought from the Desaru Fruit Farm was gorgeoooooooooussssss
It's so fragrant I could almost died of over-satisfaction

Following this Desaru trip
I had a lab outing to Pulau Hantu
Because one of our fellow labmates is to do her research on that secluded island
& we all accompanied her for a recee trip

As usual
I always wandered off to the lagoon & mangroves to look at corals & snails ;)

The last week of Feb
I indulged myself into field & labwork
My labwork didnt seem to be successful
& that I lack specimens & equipment isnt helping me to complete them in time


I have yet analyse my stupid proteomics data
Feel like dying in one corner so people wont hunt me for my report
