We were fishes

Or you can say, we are the descendants of fishes.....

Hard to imagine right? Now that we don't have gills or fins or scales. But that's the truth! We were all descended from fishes. LOL.
All life came from the ocean. It started off when Earth was just formed and is still full of poisonous gases. There isn't anything on land yet, not even a blade of grass. Slowly, the microbes in the ocean developed into sea creatures, then into fishes.. into amphibians and took over the land. Since all life is from the ocean, we can assume that our ultimate ancestors are fishes.

I told my mother that we were all fishes and she asked me.. I tot humans came from monkeys.

That is true but where do the monkeys come from? They have to be from somewhere also right? All living things come from the sea so monkeys' ancestors are from the sea too! LOL. Funny right...

Here is a graph I got from Wiki.

It all depends on if you believe in Darwin's theory of evolution and natural selection or not. I believe in it and hence I believe my ancestor is a fish. Next time when you eat a fish, think about your ancestor.

Ah gu 2

It's ah gu again. I visited her some time ago and took some pics. Forgot all about the pics until Bala reminded me that stupid May is coming back tomorrow. LOL, so now I blog some pics of her daughter la so she can see when she comes back. She will be in time to see our performance this sunday I guess.

Ah gu.. the kid who like to kp.

She was lying peacefully when suddenly a crocodile appeared and crawled up onto her tummy.

Still sleep until so shiok not knowing that the crocodile is approaching her face.

Suddenly Ah gu used her karate and grabbed the crocodile. The crocodile shocked and overturned itself on its back...

Ah gu flung the crocodile off and continued sleeping....

Then suddenly....

Her mother decided to give her a bath..

Skinny and smallish Ah gu!!!!

Then the silly mother let ah gu wear this oversized pants.. tsk tsk.. Dunno where she get this oversized pants from. Ah gu looks like a dumpling here.

Then I zoomed in on ah gu's hands and legs.

Secrets of National Library

This is our National Library. These few days I have been working the Library as a temporary staff to look after an exhibition. I only worked there for 2 weeks and pleasantly, I discovered some stuff about the visitors of the library. The normal visitors will not notice such things. It's only when you are there everyday and stayed there the whole day then you will notice.

1) On the first day of my work there, I saw this guy wearing tight jeans and brightly colour t-shirt with a scarf around his neck. I remembered him clearly because he was wearing lipstick.... Bright red lips. He was carrying a lot of stuff and he left them in the locker there.

From the on, I see him everyday. Everyday, he will come and put his stuff into the locker then he will wander off. I noticed that he always carry this green handbag and sometimes a pink hello kitty bag too. I asked the security guard about him and she told me that this guy is very famous in the library. He sometimes dress as a boy and sometimes a girl. He will wear a short skirt or dress and wander around the library but never read. When he dressed as a boy, his name is Robin. When he dressed as a girl, his name is Robina.


2) There is another uncle. He walks in a funny way like his feet were pressing the floor very hard. He also come to the library everyday. Sometimes he will talk to the guards or even the visitors of the library. He dressed sloppily like he hasn't bathed for a long time. The guard told me that this uncle always pretend to be a library staff. He will walk around and tell people that he has business in the library. The guard even told me that sometimes he stinks, like he didn't clean himself after going to the toilet!

My god....

3) Then there is this korean guy, whom I didn't get to see during my 2 weeks there, he was very famous among the guards. Everyday, he will come to the library and when the guards asked to check his bag, he will shout and scold vulgar words at the guard. Then he will take out all the things in his bag and throw around the floor to show his unhappiness.

The guard will normally ignore him because he comes everyday. After awhile, the korean guy will cool down and pick up his stuff, put them in the locker and go into the library.... I heard that he will go to every level to scold the guards but I dunno I am heng or wat, I never encounter him.

4) Every morning, before the library opens, there will be 2 groups of people lining up outside. One batch is the students, the other is the old people. According to the guard, when they opened the doors to the library, the old people will all rush to the right side and the students will rush to the left side. Reason is, the old people and rushing to snatch the day's newspaper. The students dash to the table to take the plug.

LOL, why do they need to line up early in the morning and fight with the other old people for the newspaper? It's weird lor. The guard told me that sometimes they will read the newspaper until they fall asleep. Then the guard has to wake them up... They will wake up, read and fell asleep again.

5) I noticed also a skinny old man who comes to the library everyday. He will walk up and down the building, taking the escalator. Everyday, he wear the same clothes, once a while he will change but basically he wear the same style. He will go up to the top floor then come down by the escalator every morning. I have never seen him walked into the library and hold any book in his hands before. He will just stuck his hands in his pockets and wander around the library everyday. I think he is too bored....

The guard told me that they feedback to the manager about all these regular visitors but the management responded that as long as they don't disturb the other visitors, the guards can just let them be. Let them walk around the library as they want because the library is a public place.

If one day you go to the National Library. You will notice these people... If you observe carefully.

Nice Songs from MJ!

Recently because I watched the MJ movie 'This is it', I realised that there are 2 songs I like very much!!! I bought the CD and has been listening to it.

The first one is the Smooth Criminal:

In this MV, MJ did the 'anti-gravity lean'. It's cool! And the lyrics are funny.. The line he kept repeating is 'Annie are you ok, are you Ok Annie'. It's funny lor, he kept repeating these 2 lines but I liked it very much.

The other song is They don't care about us:

The MV which I think MJ is handsome and then the one below is the concert version.

I like the military style dance in the concert! It's so cool. I love it so much I can watch it the whole day. Also this song touched me alot because the lyrics are very sad. I can feel the stress and sadness that MJ is going through from these lyrics he wrote himself. It's like the media doesn't really care if the celebraties are dead or alive. They don't care if you are distressed by their news or not. They only know that they want to get news and even create news for you.

Skinhead,deadheadEverybody gone bad
Situation aggravation Everybody allegationin the suite,
on the news everybody dogfood Bang bang shot dead
Everybodys gone mad
All I wanna say is that They dont really careabout us
All I wanna say is that They dont really care about us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break meWill me,
thrill meYou can never kill me
Jew me, sue me
Everybody do me Kick me kike me
Dont you black or white me!

All I wanna say is that They dont really care about us
All I wanna say is that They dont really care about us

Tell me what hasbecome of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality,
now Im tired of bein the victim of hate,
youre rapin me of my pride
Oh for Gods sakeI look to heaven to ful-fill its prophecy...
Set me free

Everybody gone bad Trepidation,speculation
Everybody allagation
In the suite on the news
Everybody dogfood Black man black male
Throw the brother in jail

All I wanna say is that They dont really care about us
All I wanna say is that They dont really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I ivisible 'cause you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty now
Im tired of bein the victimof shame
They're throwin me in a class with a bad name
I cant believe this is the land from which I came
The government dont wanna see,
but if Rooosevelt was livin he wouldt let this be, no,no

Everybody gone bad
Everybody litigarion
Beat me,bash me You can never trash me
Hit me,kick me You can never get me

All I wanna say is that They dont really care about us
All I wanna say is that They dont really care about us

Some things in life they just dont wanna see
But if Martin Luther was livin,he wouldnt let this be no,no

Everybodys gone bad, Situation Segregarion
Everybody allagationIn the suite on the news
Everybody dogfood kick me,Kike me
Dont you wrong or right me

The last song that I like very much is Earth Song. This song's lyrics are also very sad. The MV is even sadder it can make me cry! This song tells us about how we are polluting and destroying earth. We are destroying the natural habitats for the animal kingdom. The music video is very touching....

This song is written by MJ for World Environment Day.

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain...
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we've shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth its weeping shores?

What have we done to the world?
Look what we've done.
What about all the peace,
That you pledge your only son?
What about flowering fields?
Is there a time?
What about all the dreams,
That you said was yours and mine?

Did you ever stop to notice,
All the children dead from war?
Did you ever stop to notice,
This crying Earth its weeping shores?

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don't know where we are
Although I know we've drifted far


what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
The heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I can't even breathe
(What about us)
What about everything
(What about us)
I given you
(What about us)
What about nature's worth
(ooo, ooo)
It's our planet's womb
(What about us)
What about animals
(What about it)
We've turned kingdoms to dust
(What about us)
What about elephants
(What about us)
Have we lost their trust
(What about us)
What about crying whales
(What about us)
We're ravaging the seas
(What about us)
What about forest trails
(ooo, ooo)
Burnt despite our pleas
(What about us)
What about the holy land
(What about it)
Torn apart by creed
(What about us)
What about the common man
(What about us)
Can't we set him free
(What about us)
What about children dying
(What about us)
Can't you hear them cry
(What about us)
Where did we go wrong
(ooo, ooo)
Someone tell me why
(What about us)
What about baby boy
(What about it)
What about the days
(What about us)
What about all their joy
(What about us)
What about the man
(What about us)
What about the crying man
(What about us)
What about Abraham
(What was us)
What about death again
(ooo, ooo)
Do we give a damn
