Today’s topic is a Pyrosome. A Pyrosome is a free-floating tunicate that live in the upper layers of the open ocean and it can grow up to several meters in length. Don’t let it’s appearance fool you, a Pyrosome is not an animal, but rather a colony of beings called Zooid. Zooids are connected to each other by a gelatinous tunic and form a tube. Inside the tube there’s a...
Last night a couple friends and I went to Ethiopiques at Church and Dundas. It is definitely something new for me. I don’t think I have ever had African cuisine before. For those who don’t know, Ethiopian cuisine is mainly a stew served on a spongy bread/ pastry called Injera. Injera is really soft and a little bit sour. Maybe like a thin layer of tasteless 馬拉糕? One would use a...
Foosball match of the history.
Happy New Year!
My new year resolution is to be focus, and work on the things that actually matters. Also I need to acknowledge that I am in fact a grownup =P My side resolution is to draw, like ALL THE TIME if possible, because the more you do something, the better you get, right?
It’s Chinese New Year tomorrow, and it’s the year of Dragon!! Since dragon is the only fictional animal in the 12 Chinese Zodiac animals, I decided to make a post of different organisms named after the dragon. Reptiles Well, reptilles are the first to come up when you think of dragons, mainly because of their close resemblance to the description of a western dragon, never the less,...
Today is the 28th day of the last month of the Year according to the Chinese. It is the day of Spring cleaning. But I got lazy and just did a halfa$$ tidying =P. I did get a haircut though =P… Haven’t cut my hair for so long =/… anyway, I failed at growing my hair out.
Yesterday it’s 10 and rainy, Today it’s -10 and snowy.
Today I am going to talk about the nine-banded armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus) This armored little fellow is spread all over North, Central, and South America, making it the most wide spread species of armadillo in the world. The most interesting about it though, is that the nine-banded armadillo is always a identical quadruplet. After a female armadillo’s egg is fertilized, the...
Got a paper cut while writing a cheque, giving out $$ really hurts. =[
Had a sudden urge of running. Went, and found out how much I sucked.
It’s Sunday again. Today’s creature is quite vicious… well among other small amphibians anyways. It’s the Hairy Frog! The hairy frog (Trichobatrachus robustus) is from Central America. The name refers to the hair like structure around the thighs area like it showed in the image above. The hair is known as dermal papillae, it is found on the flanks and thighs of the...
Richard dreamt about being in a survival game or some sort of a till-the-last-one-standing-thing, in which every single person has a special gadget to help them- guns, magical machetes, flying spears etc. The item he comes to possess happens to be a clicker that can stop time. The number of minutes it stops depends on the number of times he clicks it. The whole thing is quite a blur now, but I do...
燒麼？– Grandma is so cute. =]
Typing Chinese is awfully painful.
My lips were pretty much twice their size.. scary stuff =P
