One of my uncle from my mother's side passed away earlier in the morning today due to a work related accident.

And to my friends who I haven't replied to your comments, my apologies. There's too much going on in real life lately. I'll try to reply to all of them as best I could.

Stay frosty and safe to each and everyone of you.

See ya' all around.

As of today 21st June at 9 AM, it just got worst. PSI level is at Hazardous again. Visibility is terrible too. About 500 meters. This is very very bad and depressing to look at. Gloomy and smoky all over.

Yup, I've been waiting for Comet PANSTARRS for a very long time. And from calculations, Singapore is one of the few places here in the southern hemisphere to view the Comet on the 10th - 11th of March where it's at perihelion. And it should be just about visible with the unaided eye right now. BUT!. Yeah, there's always a but, being Singapore and near the equator, the sky is mostly covered by thick clouds like throughout the year. So, since the 20th of February, the sky is blanket by thick clouds. And I'm very disappointed. I've been wantig to photograph my very first Comet photo. Missed Comet McNaught back then. And I have a feeling I'm going to missed PANSTARRS. Still there's Comet ISON which has been already label as the "Comet of the Century". Now, that I will NOT want to missed. I'm already planning a trip away from this "astro unfriendly skies" of Singapore.

I'm now part of the dA group called the puzzle arcade: thepuzzlearcade.deviantart.com

Really really love the group. They're very nice people. The members might not be in the thousand. But at least the people who created it have some very good vision on what they wanted to achieved for this group and the direction they're going into.

Have a great time everyone. And stay frosty. :)

Little cat has been sent to the vet and is on meds. Thanks to a kind soul named Xandra for helping me transport and sending the cat to the vet earlier today. Though after seeing the doctor the result is a bit grim, at least I'm glad to know that it's not suffering in silent and all alone anymore. Hopefully the tumor and wounds will heal. Shame on the caretaker who neglected their pet and let it suffer for almost a month. That in itself is another form of animal abuse.

There are indeed kind souls out there still. So, I guessed there's still hope in Humanity...

Edit: More bad news, after further check ups, Lucky, yeah, we named him Lucky was diagnosed with cancer. but we won't give up hope on him. We'll do our best to help him recover no matter what. But at least now he's in better shape than before he was rescued. And like his current caretaker said, he's such a loving cat. One couldn't to really fall in love with him at first sight. He don't make much of a sound. If he did "meow", it'll be very soft. I just hope he can recover from his cancer. Even partly will be good enough. I just wished that more people will help in donating any amount for his medical bills. So far there's like 10 people contributing to his medical bills, food and other necessities. And his current caretaker is a very wonderful person. Though I haven't see him yet after he was rescued and taken to the vet. Will be visiting him next weekend with Xandra.

Well, Nikon just announced the D800. 36 Mp. Medium Format territory :faint:. I'm all set in getting the D4 but I've changed my mind in getting the D800. I've already have the D3S. So....

And to everyone who had visited, commented and fav my works from my humble dA gallery in the past and present. And thanks to MC-Frizzle for featuring this image: shooter1970.deviantart.com/art… to DD!. Appreciate it a lot. And it's almost 3 am now. Just came back from the New Years Eve countdown. Sadly, the fireworks was killed off by the thick smoke. It was a non windy day. I only got less than a handful decent shots of the Fireworks. But I do record a video of the 8 minute long Fireworks. Will share the video after I've uploaded it to youtube or vimeo. Happy a great day all and those who are still waiting to celebrate the New Years Eve countdown, here's wishing you all will have a great time!. :D

Well, it's more than 2 years I went to the New Year's Eve countdown. All packing and ready to go. I've less than 6 hours to find a vantage point and camp out till 12 AM. Hopefully nobody is going to throw m into the Marina Reservoir before the Fireworks start because when there's an overwhelming crowd, I start to get all tense up and can easily lose my temper with some inconsiderate people. So, here's hoping for the best!. :D

...and contemplating, I finally made up my mind and decided to dump my beloved "Late 2009" 21.5-inch 3.06Ghz iMac and bought the "Mid 2011" Core i5 2.3Ghz Mac Mini. And I'm loving it already. This Mini looks sexy. And it's no slouch. It outperforms my then iMac by quite a margin when editing/processing RAW  files from my Nikon D3S. It also does not break a sweat when I edited multiple RAW files from Nikon D3X and Canon 5DMkII. Going to test on how well it can managed video editing using FCP, FCP X and Premiere. I'm very sure it will stutter here and there. But since I'm not doing any heavy video editing, it shouldn't be any concerned to me. The next step to improved it's performance is to upgrade the RAM from the current 4GB to 16GB and swapping the stock 500GB 5400RPM HDD to Seagate 750GB 7200RPM Momentus XT (2nd Gen) HDD. But the upgrade won't be anytime soon since though. And not to forget, getting an IPS LCD monitor. Plugging the Mini using the HDMI cable to my 32-inch LCD TV is nice. But, since it's not an IPS screen, I'm a bit bothered.

will occur tomorrow! (It's a friday night here already). Total Lunar Eclipse that is. I just hope that it won't be a disappointment like the one in June where the sky decided to be cruel by covering the lunar eclipse with clouds, rain, lightning and thunder. Today's weather as at 8.30 pm now looks great. Hoping it'll be the same tomorrow. It's going to be quite a sight watching the full moon turn blood red for an hour. :D

And so, I've used OS X Lion for almost a month already. Since day one I have almost of problems running Lion except for a few minor blips and hiccups with certain 3rd party programs. All my adobe products works as usual after installing the latest Java script after the initial installation of Lion. And after reading some articles, I've created a bootable installer of Lion using one of my Sandisk thumb drive. So I'm well covered if the iMac HDD were to suffer a major malfunction. Or I can just used TIme Machine to restore everything as it is. Suffice to say, upgrade only to Lion if anyone likes the IOS feel and functionality since there's not much of a difference between Lion and Snow Leopard. Snow Leopard is still a capable OS X.

And Steve Jobs steps down as Apple CEO. Still, the world is not coming to an end, at least for Apple though.

A celestial event that I wouldn't want to missed out. Even if it starts at around 0220 hours. Well, unless I'm sleeping soundly. :D
