July.August, the wettest period in the west coast of Malaysia and also the season for Malaysian's favorite fruit, durian. Recently, many of our friends got sick due to the weather change and also the excessive consumption of durian, which known to be a heaty fruit, raising body temperature after taking. We hope that everyone stays healthy and happy. Sharing some shots I took in July which are uncategorized. They were all taken in my lovely hometown, Melaka. May you find serenity in juesatta.

[caption id="attachment_4693" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Coral bleaching in Santelmo, Philippines"][/caption] Mass coral bleaching caused by global warming is threatening the health of the Coral Triangle, a vast marine region that is home to 76% of all known corals in the world. The Malaysian government recently closed portions of world-renowned dive sites on the tropical islands of Tioman and Redang, saying they would be off limits until October to give the fragile coral reef ecosystems time to heal. Meanwhile, in the Philippines, bleaching has been reported in Anilao and Nasugbu, as well as off the cost of the western...

"Phytoplankton... produce half of the oxygen we breathe, draw down surface CO2, and ultimately support all of our fisheries" Professor Boris Worm Dalhousie University

The amount of phytoplankton - tiny marine plants - in the top layers of the oceans has declined markedly over the last century, research suggests. Writing in the journal Nature, scientists say the decline appears to be linked to rising water temperatures. They made their finding by looking at records of the transparency of sea water, which is affected by the plants. The decline - about 1% per year - could be ecologically significant as plankton sit at the base of marine food chains. [caption id="attachment_4671" align="alignright" width="304" caption="Algal blooms can be imaged from space"]Algal blooms can be imaged from space[/caption] This is the first study to attempt a comprehensive global look at plankton changes over such a long time scale. "What we think is happening is that the oceans are becoming more stratified as the water warms," said research leader Daniel Boyce from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. "The plants need sunlight from above and nutrients from below; and as it becomes more stratified, that limits the availability of nutrients," he told BBC News. Phytoplankton are typically eaten by zooplankton - tiny marine animals - which themselves are prey for small fish and other animals.

[caption id="attachment_4663" align="aligncenter" width="600"]Kok-Liang on the phone with Tracy at Pantai Pengkalan Balak Kok-Liang on the phone with Tracy at Pantai Pengkalan Balak[/caption] When I told Kok-Liang that I was looking for a nice beach to shoot beautiful sunset last Sunday, he suggested me to travel to the north of Melaka and made me a generous offer by giving me a ride. Initially we checked the time, weather, tide and everything was good. However, due to some unforeseen circumstances (Wee-Peng), we could not make it in time for the sunset. Nevertheless, Kok-Liang insisted that we could check the place up first. The both of us traveled all the way north to Masjid Tanah town, made a turn to Tanjung Bidara and headed further north to Pengkalan Balak, and it took us 40 minutes drive from Melaka to arrive in Pantai Pengkalan Lama (pantai in Malay means beach), which was night time when we reached. Pantai Pengkalan Balak is a Malay fishing village located between Melaka town and Port Dickson. It is 10 minutes drive from another famous beach, Tanjung Bidara which shares the magnificent sweep of the state’s coastline. Along the beach, there are many chalets built providing overnight shelters for locals as well as foreigners. We didn't spend much time there as it was too dark to find a good spot for future sunset shooting. After taking a short walk along the beach and enjoyed the night scenery of the fishing village, we traveled back to Melaka town. Thanks to Kok-Liang for taking me there and Pantai Pengkalan Balak would be a good spot to plan for my next sunset shooting. Sharing some shots taken. May all beings be happy.

[caption id="attachment_4642" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Novelist and wife - by CJ"][/caption] 法国小说家吕西安.里歇著书立说常常妙笔生花、浪漫情事多多,但他的家庭生活太平静、太单调了。 吕西安.里歇每天到图书馆去写作,他太太每天操持家务,并负责打印丈夫定期在《里昂晚报》上发表的短篇小说。 他每天回家的第一件事几乎是一成不变的:拥抱一下妻子,亲亲她的前额,说天天重复的一句话,“亲爱的,我希望我不在家时,你没有过于烦闷,是吗?” 太太的回答差不多也是一成不变:“没有,家里也是有这么多事情要做。但看到你回来,我还是很高兴的。” 结婚23年来,几乎天天如此! 但是万万没有想到的是,奥尔嘉.巴列丝卡以第三者的身份闯进了他们的家庭。这是一个刚离了婚的漂亮、奔放,甚至有点寡廉鲜耻的女人。她降服了小说家,并且提出要跟他结婚。 小说家毕竟是小说家,他想出个妙主意。他编了一个故事,把自己与太太的现实处境转托成两个虚构人物的经历。为了能被妻子领悟,他还特意引用了他们夫妻间以往 生活中若干特有的细节。在故事的结尾,他让那对夫妻离了婚,并特意写道:那个妻子对丈夫已经没有了爱情,一滴眼泪也没有流地走了,以后隐居在南方的森林小 屋,靠丈夫补偿给她的足够的法郎,悠闲自得地消磨着自由的时光…… 他把这份手稿交给太太打印时,心里难免有些不安。晚上回到家里时,心里嘀咕妻子会怎么接待他。 “亲爱的,我希望我不在家时你没有过于烦闷,是吗?”吕西安.里歇的话里带着几分犹豫。 太太却像平常一样安详:“没有,家里有这么多事情要做呐。但看到你回来,我还是很高兴的。” 吕西安.里歇猜测,难道她没有看懂?或者她把打印的事情安排到了明天?然而,太太告诉他,故事已经打印好了,并经仔细校对后寄往《里昂晚报》编辑部了。可是她为什么一字不提文中的情节呢?毕竟心虚,小说家没有多问;他受着情感的煎熬。 直到故事在报上发表后,闷葫芦才打开。原来,太太把故事的结局改了:既然丈夫提出了这个要求,妻子只得强忍心中的悲伤,夫妻俩离了婚。可是,那位在结婚23年之后依然保持着自己纯真爱情的妻子,却在前往南方森林小屋的途中抑郁而死。 小说家吕西安.里歇震惊了,忏悔了,当下就和那个令他神魂颠倒的女人一刀两断。 太阳又升起来了,他们的生活还在继续。如同太太没有向他说起自己修改故事的结局一样,吕西安.里歇也没有向太太谈到自己的这段情事。 “亲爱的,我希望我不在家时你没有过于烦闷,是吗?”吕西安.里歇回到家时,一如既往地问道,不过比以往更加深情。 “没有,家里有这么多事情要做。但看到你回来,我还是很高兴的。”妻子一如既往地回答,不过比以往更加温柔。 那些似乎太平静、太单调、太不浪漫的家庭生活,往往正是最安宁、最朴实、最值得珍惜的幸福生活。 [source: http://hi.baidu.com/%B3%C2%F6%A8%CD%AE%C9%CF%D0%A3/blog/item/d1ee0e45da56d734869473b2.html]...
