In the last hours of 2016. I just want to say. This has been a crazy year. Both good and bad.
a) the March 9th solar eclipse was crazy, fun and mind-blowing.
b) FLYING ~ the freaking highlight of my year. Massive thanks to everyone in the community for all the friendship, fly meets, crazy moments, laughter and everything else. I threw so much money at my drone babies but it is all worth it. ILU Cinnamon, Darjeeling, Fennel, and all my other quads.
c) I had friends walk out of my life, but their departure made space for new friends to come into my life and enrich my life so much better.
d) and last but not least, my colleagues at work. We go through so much shit at work and we still come out stronger.
e) other various things that happened included finally using Linux as a daily usage OS, buying my first digital audio player in ages and OMG the music, Pokemon Sun & Moon, and so much more.
I think I’m done with 2016. Let’s hope for more awesome to come in 2017!
Anyway. update about my life.
a) I am Martian!trash and Mark Watney is my hero.
b) I am also drone trash and flying is addictive.
c) there is no C. please see my Twitter for the latest updates to my nonsense life.
Apparently. This is happening.
Cue mad screaming on my part. and me nearly throwing my phone in shock.
whole world should know of my not-very-secret obsession with the Large Hadron Collider. yes. hence the mad screaming.
Stalk the ArtScience Musuem page for more info. info on the exhibit. not my LHC obsession, that would be scary.
(the Science is Happening phrase goes back to July 4th 2012, when I was watching the Higgs Boson web conference and my Internet was cutting out. And I was so annoyed I tweeted “SCIENCE IS HAPPENING.” and apparently it is now a thing. )
I haven’t been updating this blog here. I should.
Here’s an update on my life since I last posted.
1) Comic Feista 2014 was amazing fun. The boyfriend and I went. Along with the usual gang. My birthday fell during our trip and so we celebrated with A&W. And the gang got me a Creeper plushie. And film.
2) SINGAPORE SIDEWALK ASTRONOMY aka the astronomy outreach group I help run had it’s 3rd birthday on April 4th. And it was also the day of the total Lunar Eclipse. So we had a massive sidewalk session to watch the eclipse and the sidewalk group’s Facebook page hit a 1000 likes on that day. What a milestone.
3) I have officially gone back to the ball-jointed doll hobby. I had three dolls I got/bought way back in 2008/2009. But I more or less fell out of the hobby in 2010. Well. I’m back in the hobby. And in the span of slightly over two months, I have acquired three more dolls. One is already home because he is second hand from the Marketplace at Den of Angels. The second one is one his way home, also second hand from the Den of Angels. And the third is still in the making process because she was ordered new from Fairyland.
4) last but not least. I just got back from Bekok. Aka my astronomy paradise under dark skies. I had two nights and three days of amazing skies. Good food. Friendship. And much laughter.I can’t wait for the next trip. 26 days to go!
So STGCC 2014 happened and I was there. Along with the Boyfriend. And the AdCrew. And various other people.
not a proper review because I just wandered around. also. some photos by the Boyfriend because I was lazy to use my camera and he always has at least one camera on him.
mainly selfies and random nonsense. please go see other people’s blogs for a proper write up of the event.
So I’m sort-of hosting a sidewalk event on the 8th of March to mark International Sidewalk Astronomy Night 2014.

yes you should drop by!
We can look at the moon, the Orion Nebula, Jupiter, and maybe Saturn and Mars if we stay late enough. You can come and hang out, chat with us and obviously look at stuff in the sky. There will be at least one telescope, not mine. But I may be convinced to bring mine along. HAHA ~
See you on the 8th!
