What Was That ???

A friend send me this video and reminded me to watch it. Obediently, I click on the link, hoping its not one of those dumb prank videos where a horror picture suddenly appear at the end of the video.

What greeted me was something unexpected. Its a sea creature. And never in my life did I see such creature before. Does anybody know what this creature is? I wonder if this creature is in wikipedia. How do I refer to wiki if I don't know the name of this creature?

Here is the video. This creature looks weird and 'vulgar' when flipped over. And it was bigger than I though. At the end of the video...something unexpected happened and I couldn't help but to...LAUGH!

Seven Wonders of The World

No, this topic is not really about the Seven Wonders Of The World, whether the old seven wonders, or the new seven wonders.

Its about another new video I created yesterday, and uploaded to Metacafe. It took me one whole day, from morning till late at night.

This is the story of the Seven Wonders:-

Junior high school students in Chicago were
studying the Seven Wonders of the World. At
the end of the lesson, the students were asked
to list what they considered to be the Seven
Wonders of the World. Though there was some
disagreement, the following received the
most votes:

1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. The Taj Mahal in India
3. The Grand Canyon in Arizona
4. The Panama Canal
5. The Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall

While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl, hadn't turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The quiet girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind because there were so many." The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help."

The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:

1. to touch...
2. to taste...
3. to see...
4. to hear... (She hesitated a little, and then added...)
5. to feel...
6. to laugh...
7. and to love.

The room was so quiet, you could have heard a pin drop.

May this story serve as a gentle reminder to all of us that the things we overlook as simple and ordinary are often the most wonderful - and we don't have to travel anywhere special to experience them.

Enjoy your gifts!

The first thing I did was to source for pictures. A picture tell a thousand words. So, I need 3 pictures for each illustration, because I wanted to tell 3 thousand words :)

There were pictures of the seven wonders I needed to download, 3 pictures for each wonder, and that copmes up to 21 pictures. Then there are the junior high girl's seven wonder. And another 3 pictures for each 'wonder' and that's another 21 picturesbringing it to 42 pictures altogether that I needed to source.

Luckily, with Google Image, I managed to get my pictures downloaded before dinner.

Using a great software to create this video, if you are curious, here is a link to download this software. But you have to buy it to have the watermark removed.

And the end product...Hope you guys will love it!

Dreams Do Come True..

Dreams do come true after all. We only need to have faith in our ability. A person without dreams is as good as dead, that's what I read from time to time.

This bring me to Ms Susan Boyle. Since I'm from another part of the world where access to my favorite TV show, 'Britains Got Talent' is limited to Youtube, I've only 'discovered' her NOW. Better late than never at all.

If you're like me, and have not heard of Ms Susan Boyle, you are strongly recommended to view the below video, from Youtube, where else, and be pleasantly surprised too. May your dreams come true too!

Ms Susan is 47 fast going to 48 years of age. Claimed that she has not been kissed, and lived alone with her pet cat.

Gosh, Youtube is at it again, the embed feature is disabled on this video, so I'll go to Metacafe and embed the video from there.

Susan Boyle - Singer - Britains Got Talent 2009 - The most popular videos are here

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high,
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid
When dreams were made and used,
And wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung,
No wine untasted.

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hopes apart
As they turn your dreams to shame.

And still I dream he'll come to me
And we will live our lives together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms
We cannot weather...

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seems
Now life has killed
The dream I dreamed.

To end this post, I'm tempted to include this song sang by Ms Susan Boyle way back in 1999. A song called "Cry Me A River", for a charity, in which only 1000 copies were ever printed and sold.

This song is a bit slow for my liking. Nevertheles, her voice is great!
