All for Crystal Red Shrimps

My aquarium craze.... the tiny crystal red shrimps. Started keeping them early January this year.
My friend has a planted tank full of shrimps. It was so COOL and it motivates me !!!
Frankly speaking, I'm the lazy lazy type, that's why I never had a planted aquarium because I find it very troublesome. But now, it's all for the love of the crystal shrimps...........
I had actually tried to keep them without plants but it seems that the shrimps will die about one week or so.
So I hope with this planted tank it will be a suitable environment for them to live in. Set up this tank planted tank w/ electronic CO2 only on 27 August 2007. Now this tank only have 2 cherry shrimps that I've transferred from my 1ft tank. I want to wait for the water to be more stable before introducing any crystal shrimps. Too much casualties had happened before, so I have to be more patient.

Previously, this tank used to house some fishes and very easy to care for plant. As you can see below. These plant last about 6 months. I only put in one Co2 tablet once a week for them. Fishes here are then transferred to my 4ft tank to live with Discus and Angel fishes.

This is a mini tank 1 ft tank that I used to keep shrimps for the past 8 months. The tiny plants in front rot and make a mess out of the tank. I rearranged the tank just now and as you can see the water still blur. (See the 2 picture below). I brought 12 on friday, four died and I transferred 2 to the Boyu tank. So I'm left with 6 cherry shrimps in this tank.

Death of Pokemon

All is in a mess as I was arranging the cabinet.

Just in case you are wondering, all the Pokemon are now back into the shelf.
Safe & Sound !!!!

Happy Birthday Singapore !

Just finished watching the live telecast of National Day Special.
This year, due the the old stadium at Kallang was to be tear down.
We have our National Day at the Marina Bay, on a floating stage.
So it's for the first time and it's rather unique.
I think the geography is good there.
With water front view, the fireworks look superb.
I couldn't get a ticket this year to watch. Signed!
Would love to take some pictures of the fireworks.
This is Singapore 42th years old birthday.

Below are some fantastic photo of the National Day celebration from Straits Times Newspaper on 10 August 2007, Friday.

These people here are flying radio-controlled lighted kites. Making the night sky beautiful with colours.

Astro Boy - My Starting

Whew, just make it in time for posting.
1 more minute and I'll be late to celebrate my very own Astro Boy day !!
Brought some Astro Boy figures today 08 08 2007.
Nice date, right.
I did have some astro toys some years ago but I need to search for them.
Not many but that's at least better than none !
So my latest collection is Astro Boy.
My friends wonder how I can get into my room.
Say the truth, it is really in a mess.
Toys on the floor, on the shelf, on the table, on the carpet...... arhhhhh..
I am so lazy these days that I just lay around playing my DS.......

Sunday Trip

I went for a 1 day trip to Malaysia on Sunday, 5 August 2007.
Even though Singapore is so near to Malaysia, I didn't visit for maybe about 6 years.
Well, the reason I wanted to go there was to get some PEZ or candy toys.
I was able to get some there and also brought some star wars.
For candys toys that were manufactured locally was rather cheap.
Huge toy on top of a little candy stick.
Managed to get 4 pez at toys r us. it's a christmas winter set.
Included Santa Claus, Rindeer, Snowman & Icee Bear.
Icee bear was a PEZ that I've been looking for a long time.
Toys like star wars is almost the same price as the shopping in singapore, pez alike.
Take the Star Wars Galatic Heroes for example.
Singapore is selling S$10.00 and Malaysia is selling RM$19.90.
So it is really not much cheaper but you can get many good star wars characters there.
Singapore will be more difficult to find.
I'll post some of the pictures later. ... (Posted on 11 Aug 2007).
All in all, finding the toys I want was an enjoyable trip.

I was bored in the car, so I took a picture of my polo shirt.
