The BiG event that all borneo bloggers have been waiting for..took place at the 1Borneo Hypermall Grand Ballroom, yesterday the 29th October 2010.
I missed my college inter college sports event.. to be part of the fantastic families of the borneo bloggers.
Which was worth it. hehe..

Entering the hall with no clue of how everything was going to be..was the first step.
The minute i stepped in..i was greeted with a smile by the Borneo Colours team and presented me with the tag above. O yeah..hehe.. FiNALiST was an awesome way to be introduced to everyone.
And..thnkfully..i was seated next to pretty mummy Wyne who saw me at the entrance looking clueless.
Deanona of Bloggie Doggie, Yoshi Yoshi (hehe) a BC buddy, and Arti Rahmma and Dwi Wahyudi of Blogger Borneo from Kalimantan was on the opposite row.

But of course..the man behind the inspirational Borneo Colours - Mr Daniel Doughty, who made us feel at ease and soooo casual at such a grand event. 
Tapi..gambar nya agak jauh ya (bunyi ala2 Indonesia accent a..)..hehe
All speakers were amazing. 
From the topic of blog monetization, personal branding and media social engagement..lessons were learnt.
 And i am so eager to go on to the next step of the blogging world..making it quite a serious business? 
WHY NOT. I'm glad i know what to do next. O yess.

The 3D Experience

O yess. I finally had the opportunity to watch a 3D movie.
It all happened last week when i brought my group of students to experience a 3D entertainment at 2.oo in the part of their subject research actually - to make it formal. Mana lagi mau cari lecturer yg sudi bawa student2 ny pgi tingu movie sama2..ha.. hehe..pastu makan sama2 n ambi2 gmbr lagi ( ^_^) - during class time of course. 
The surrounding environment is full of things that are awaiting to be discovered.
Instead of just talking..DO iT.

Well,, here we go. There were not any major box office 3D movies showing  this particular period. So we're left with this environment friendly movie - Sammy's Adventure. The students were a bit reluctant when knowing they're going to watch an animated movie. But then, there must a good reason why this movie was in 3D. So..we begin our little afternoon adventure, going for Sammy's Adventure.
WeeeeeeeeeEEEE.... :)

It all turn out not GooD..but GREAT!!
Being in the premiere 3D movie hall in Suria Shopping Mall was already a major advantage, as not many people have really set foot in this place. Semua tatap dan berpencen di center point n 1 Borneo bah.

Everybody was looking great in their 3D glasses. ..Sa pun nda mau ketinggalan bah..
Hehe..proudly showing off the 3D glasses and ticket.
My first impression..there was nothing special about the 3D glasses,, except that it was a bit thick.
Movie time: wOWwwwwwww... 
I forgot how many time i've WOWWWWW at the movie screen with the glasses on.
It was simply fantastic. To the eyes, to the surrounding..and like everyone's as if it's right in front of your face. No doubt now.
What happen when you take off the glasses and try to watch it like a normal movie..?
You can't.
There will be 3 blurry image of each object in the movie. Perhaps that's the 3 dimension..right?
So..glasses on.
Relax..and enjoy the beautiful beautiful underwater panorama in Sammy's Adventure. 
Now i understand why it's in 3D.
You would feel like swimming with Sammy.
Who's Sammy? You've got to watched it to appreciate it.
Spot the lecturer.

Well..being an educator has a lot of advantages.
No matter how old you feel.. you'll always be young at heart, because you're surrounded by the young ones. No matter how old a student they are.. you'll always be the wiser one, because you have the wisdom.

nc says:
Okay..the trailer and sypnosis..
"Sammy, a sea turtle, hatches on a deserted beach and tries to climb out of the hole where he hatched. Being caught by a seagull, he struggles for his life and manages to escape, as the seagull clashes in the air with a another seagull, also carrying its prey, who turns out to be a female hatchling sea turtle, Shelly."..and pretty much.. its where a love story and adventure of a lifetime begins.
Yes!! I am soo inspired by the Green Connection and will be volunteering there soon!

The Green Connection, located at Mile 2 Jalan Tuaran (near Wisma Wanita) is actually an Aquarium and Science Discovery Centre that offers a lot of educational programme and expose the community to the importance of conservation of the marine life.
whoa..was that heavy? hehe..
It's a place where we can learn, touch, see and understand about the awesome marine life that we have Sabah. Entrance is rm15 per person.  I went there with my students, so urm..its ehEm..complimentary - as usual.
If only i have the guts to dive..i'll be feeding off fishes and sting rays..instead of cats and dogs..haha
The picture above is the main attraction of the site: a big aquarium that has a variety of marine life - including 3 beautiful sharks and a very big turtle. biG. (i'm just amazed bah)
hmm..perhaps i could volunteer in the future on presenting the infos to the visitors. *gulp* kunun..
Need to get close, up and personal first with a lot of text book before doing this.hehe
One of the three beautiful sharks. It's very hard for me to get a picture of them with my super slow camera.
But their movement and grandeur never fail my eyes.
Some of the display at the Green Connection where visitors can touch and see first hand the wonderful sea creatures. Not me though..especially on the horseshoe crab@ belangkas. Would you?
Ah...these fellas were also amazing. These are found in our Kinabatangan river. Tapi sa pun tak pasti ikan apa..very big..and with a small hump on its head. Berabis mau ambil gmbr dorang. You can see my reflection in the tank.hahah..
Do you know that the sharks we have today are the evolution and transformation from the one we had thousand of years ago? Aha! there iS one very unique shark in the Green Connection big tank that everybody has to see to believe. Almost like a hammerhead shark. But with a triangular feature. Anybody..?raise ur hand please if u have seen that kind of shark. I was not able to take a  picture of it as it was always moving around during the fish feeding show. pictures, no real shark?
Get one of those cute stuff marine life with you.
You will never find any of the stuff animals in their gift shop, any where.
And...some of the great happenings during the tour. Ain't that a beautiful sting ray?
I am inspired. And i want to be part of the great team of the Green Connection.
It's the animal instinct in me speaking, i guess.
You can help too by being a volunteer and spread the importance of marine life conservation.

nc says: Fact of the day: Love eating garoupa? Do you know that babies garoupa are all born male and some will turn into female when they hit maturity. Most of the giant garoupa are males, the one that we love to catch n eat. So that makes the female garoupa having no males to make babies with. They could live up to 67 years old. babies garoupa = less garoupa = no garoupa.
Garoupa: ikan kerapu bah...

The BloG MakeOver

Not so brand new, but a brand new attitude that is.
A blog make over or changing of template to my precious Yours Sincerely has never occured to me.
It all started with just wanting to create a new header for my blog.
But then it turned into THiS.

Going back to basic with plain white and less pictures and widgets.
LeSS iS MoRe.
Holding on always to that principle.

Too white n plain makes it boring?
Add a Blog's Mood to your blog to create a paint of color and mood of course.
I think my falling maple leaves did the job, hehe

Btw, hop on to my other blog..and you'll understand how and why i have fallen for a blog makeover craze.

nc says: some people ask me whether it's not tiring and tough to have 2 blogs?
Nope. because, its a pleasure :)
Let's go now.

On a hill far away..

"..stood an old rugged cross..
the emblem of suffering and pain
and i love that old cross where the dearest and best
for a world of lost sinners was slain.."

Have you ever seen this church?
Beautiful isn't it.
It really is on a hill far far away from the city.
One of the most unique design and architecture of a church in Kota Kinabalu. 
Don't you agree?

Why the fallen cross, u said?
Perhaps it is to remind us that Christ carried the cross for us.
Will be visiting the place soon.

lets continue with the lyric of the song..and you try to guess where exactly can you find this church ya :)

"So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
and exchange it some day for a crown."

nc says: i love this song very much..mari kita berdoa..
