A post about everything

Hmm.. as the title goes, this post is about anything and everything under the sun, that somehow could find a link to each other. First off, finally I'm starting to do my protein crystallisation work today! Yeah!! After months of cloning and purifying one of my many proteins, I'm so happy that things are moving on - at least for this particular protein named TBP! Went to Paul Curmi's biophysics lab this afternoon to set up the crystallisation trial, with the help and guidance from Steve Harrop. Everything just seems so robotic and cool! LOL... I hope I will be able to see some crystals growing when they reopen their lab on the 7th Jan! But might not be lar, since fate always twist me around and enjoy seeing me suffer! oh well...

And yup, it's Christmas soon! And practically the whole university is shutting down! For the school which I'm in, School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences, the official shut down date is from 24th Dec till 2nd Jan, which is like a week's holiday!! How I wish Singapore's system was the same as well! lol... anyway, I see that most of the labs are already closed since yesterday, and the school was pretty empty today as well - prolly 'cept for the few hardworking souls like me! LOL...

Some random picture time... ok .. let's see.. oh.. obviously this was taken when there was a heavy rain at my place. And this poor bird was trying to seek shelter by my window ledge. Not much of a shelter I reckon, as after all, the rain can come at an angle and drench the poor bird. I wanted to open the window to let the bird fly in.. LOL.. but nah.. the moment I walked past it, it flew off. Oops.. sorry birdie.. didn't mean to chase you off! =)

Now for this picture... hmm.. this was taken on the day when the NYP students were leaving, when we went to Coogee beach to watch sunrise. I took this picture with my Nokia 6288, and sent an MMS to my Limin back in Singapore. But somehow, the MMS was lost in transition. Argh.. waste my money...

A food pic! Yeah! Ok, I know that this looks like worms, but it's actually 'dong fen'! LOL... I added in some dark soy sauce, and so it became brownish and looks like worms! lol.. and I don't eat worms!!
