My 2016 Birthday - Jungle Style

Image
I was on my High Conservation Value assessment's field trip to Ulu Baram from 15th until 23rd June 2016. It happens to be my birthday was exactly the time i am still walking in the forest observing birds, mammals, frogs and enjoying the cooling nice morning mists. We didn't celebrate because none of my friends aware of my birthday but it doesn't really matters for me because what i really need is a prayers. Woke up in the morning, i say a little prayer for my birthday this year.

“O St Therese of the Child Jesus, it is my birthday today. I want to give thanks and praise Jesus for this 35 years of my life blessings. Teach me your little way which will bring me closer to Mama Mary and her son, Jesus. Continue to pray for me and guide me in my life journey on earth till the day that i die and meet you in Heaven. I love you Jesus, I love you Mama Mary, I love you St. Therese of the Child Jesus. Amen.”

Why I Blog?

Image
There is a few reasons why i write a blog and i end up having quite a number of Blogs in these both domains, Blogger and Wordpress. When i recall back, there is a point of time that i became addicted with creating blogs. I was having this thought of sharing everything i have in my mind and don't want to keep it to myself. However, i ended up abandon many of my blogs because i can't keep up with it. Even to maintain postings in my main blog become very difficult for me. Let me list down some of the purpose of why i blog:

To improve my English writing - English is my second language and i learn it in school. However, after graduation and enter the working world, my English is very poor both in oral and writings. A friend of mine introduce me with Blogspot way back in 2008. Since then, i start to write and i can see my improvements as years goes by. Sharing my experiences in the field - I love my job as a field biologist so much and i have the great opportunity to work closely wi…

I took photos whenever i walk in the forest or when i went to a new places. But I never participate in photo hunt or outings with photographers except during my work in the forest. My brother involved in photography and he will coming to Kuching city for this Street Photography Outing for two days session with his fellows photographer's friends in two places which is Kuching Waterfront and Serikin Weekend Market, Bau. He allows me to participate and he borrowed me his Nikon DSLR camera (I am sorry, i don't know the model, i just use it for this two days).

On the first day at the Kuching Waterfront, we have a short briefing by my brother John Ragai and Mr. Bakir Bujang before we proceed with our photo hunt around 9am. We were dispersed in a few small groups and walking along the streets near Kuching Waterfront. Here is two photos that i took using my Samsung Note 3 smartphone.

On the second day, we leave Kuching as early as 7.30am after taking breakfast at Mile 3 together with…

It Is None of My Business

Image
At present, i am sure many people talk about me, don't get me wrong, i am not a celebrity though (LOL). But, it doesn't matter because they see things happen around me. They make their own assumption and judgement based on what they see and what they think they know. Some maybe criticize and condemn me, some maybe pity me, some maybe doesn't really care. Thus, i decide to just be silent and move on with my life. I don't have to justify to all people why i am doing this and why not that etc.

As i scroll over my FB newsfeed, i saw this post by Mr. Martin Jalleh, What other people think of me is none of my business! by Brenda Freeman.. I read through that short article and, hmmm... its quite true. So, here it is.
Many people have told me over the course of my life that “What other people think about you is none of your business.” Early in my life, and even in recent times, I had striven to be liked, to not upset people, to keep the peace, but I found all I managed to do …
