The Smell after rain?

Hot is the word to describe the weather for the past few weeks, fortunately rain do pay visits to Earth for the past few nights. =)

So, yeah, what's up with the rain?
Well, just want to share something rain-related, more specifically, After-rain-related - Have you ever curious about what causes the wonderful, refreshing smell after rain?

Actually, there are many kinds of after-rain smell which are each caused by different stuff.

One of the most noticeable smell would be the ones caused by.... bacteria. Yup you heard me right, bacteria. The name is Actinomycetes, a type of filamentous bacteria, found and grow in soil when the soils' condition are damp and warm. After the soil dries out, the bacteria produces spores in the soil. During rain, these tiny spores are smack right up into the air by the rainfall. The moist air after rain carries the spores and we breathe in those earthy-smell spores.

The bacteria is extremely common and can be found in areas all over the world, which is why this "after-the-rain" smell are kind of same in almost anywhere.

I personally like the refreshing smell, a lot, do you? =)


The Known Universe

You feel frustrated and angry, thinking the problem is a "BIG THING" to you.

"The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010. "

Are your problems really that "BIG THING" to you now?

Be Happy. =]


Go Stern (Go Stand)

I'm sure you Malaysian out there heard of this word -

"Go stand/gostan etc", which means reverse.

But do you know the real term?

Its Go Stern.

Stern is actually the end part of a ship. To be contrasted with bow, where bow is the front.
"Malaysia: to move backward in a vehicle (informal)" -

Note the Malaysia noting in front of the definition, probably only Malaysian called Go Stern as to mean reversing. =)

Which of the following is the largest?

Why ... not?

There are times, we try our very best, to do something, to accomplish something, to get that special thing that we wanted so badly, but yet, “nothing” seems to be the reward we get, the only reward.

That, really breaks us apart.

It’s both disappointing and frustrating, and most of us chose to give up, to let go the hope and dream we once thirst for; to destroy all the efforts and hard work we all have put in; to forget that special thing we once aimed to achieve… And the worst? We lost our courage, which is the most important element that kept us going forward, to hang on to what we used to believe; to start another dream-achieving journey; to put in even the slightest effort on something else…

Many asked why; many said they’ve lost everything.

But the past is the past.

It’s perfectly normal that you’re being haunted by the failure in your past, so instead of asking yourself: “Why I should continue?” ask yourself: “Why shouldn’t I continue?”

Why not?” gives you a much clearer picture than just “Why”. And don’t ask what or how much you can get; instead, ask what you are you going to lose.


why not?



Hilarious Mirror Prank

Imagine yourself being in the washroom, you do your "things", off to wash your hand,
then you take a look at the mirror to check your face and hair.
But wait,
where's my face?
where's... me?


Tangible VS Intangible

The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it, because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last.

Stone crumbles, wood rots, people, well, they die.
But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.

-Chuck Palahniuk (American freelance Journalist, Satirist and Novelist. b.1961)

The truth is, everybody dies. And I mean every single one of us.

Life isn't about living forever, but to create something that will lasts forever, something as small as a simple idea, an invention, a thought that will grow itself through the minds and beliefs of others. These are the things that truly lasts, much longer than you can ever possibly imagine.
