the macabre, the weird and the supernatural
Many of us have heard of the urban myth of crying foetuses in bottles in science labs and all. I have to admit it. I am a supernatural junkie. I love anything freaky though I have to clarify that I just love it for the thrill and the adrenalin rush that come with the experience and my beliefs on the spooks are cemented against my religious beliefs - you can ask me about this personally another time.
Many years back while I was still in the university, I took off to Thailand for a month. There I met the coolest community on this globe - the backpackers! There was this British girl who brought me to a hospital in Bangkok where the wonderful folks keep their museums open to the public. There were entire collections of bottled body parts, the unborn and the dead stored on very quaint and musty shelves. The medical students use these specimens for their studies and the exhibits are manned by monks! I remember snapping a couple of shots under stealth cover. I sure hope they are somewhere on my storage vault still!
Well, here are a few interesting bottles I spotted in our very own SAS Biology lab! The apparitions in the pictures are truly but my reflections...
WOAH! woah! Woahhhh! WOOAH!

New services help consumers keep track of their gadgets
When Chua Si Zhen accidentally left behind her cell phone at a cafe, it wasn't the handset she was worried about losing. "It was the contacts, and the little info that I have in there, like my photos and everything," says the Singaporean.
Luckily a man did return her Nokia N70 handset within an hour -- but only after he tried to steal it first.
When the thief inserted his own SIM card into her phone, that triggered software she'd installed on the handset.
The program texted her family members with his phone number and other data that could be taken to the police. The thief, informed of these details by Chua's angry husband -- over his "new" phone -- agreed to meet and return the handset.

A walk into the canteen to grab a quick bite led me to the Blues Brothers.
