Almost there


What to say when a hiker asks, "How much farther to the top?"
"You are almost there."
"You are almost there."

Exit in Chinese


For those who know Chinese ... I photographed this funny exit sign in Málaga Cathedral, Málaga, Spain in 2017 June.
Instead of blaming the clueless Spanish sign maker, perhaps the whip should be applied to Google.
Do a Google translate of the Spanish word "Salida" into Chinese, and you get 產量.
The Spanish sign maker was merely following the maxim "In Google We Trust" ... a bit worrying in a cathedral  :-)
(產量 means something along the line of: Production output / yield ... not "Exit")

Judy Garland and Scarecrow


Judy Garland: "How can you talk if you haven't a brain?"
Scarecrow: "Oh some people without brains do an awful lot of talking."

It is because some people have a hole in the back of their heads and the wind blows their tongues around!

Beautiful Walpa Gorge, Kata Tjuta, NT, Australia


Walpa Gorge is a gorge between two of the highest domes in Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Northern Territory, Australia.

Here is a rare, but most stunning scenery of water pouring down the cliff faces of the gorge:
The photograph was taken in 2013-05 in pouring rain. The rain ruined my camera ... but to be able to witness such a scene is well worth it.

Photograph courtesy of Ricky who was mad enough to be with me in that trip.

As of today, I can't find any picture posted by others on the internet of the gorge in the rain.

By contrast, here is a photograph of the same gorge taken by me 14 months later in 2014-07 in a sunny afternoon. Still a sight to behold, but I prefer the beauty of the previous pic.
( More photos and trip report on Walpa Gorge are in my blog:

My abode in the woods


Some people want a big house, a fast car, and lots of money.
Others just want a tiny cabin in the woods away from those kinds of people.

Caterpillar tree ferns - Dicksonia antarctica


The 2 photographs here are Soft Tree Ferns, Dicksonia antarctica. They have fallen or bent into an arch. On reaching the ground, the stems turn vertical and continue to grow and hence having the appearance of giant caterpillars crawling on the forest floor.
Although Dicksonia antarctica is a common species in Australia, seeing them in a caterpillar state is quite rare.

But in Dicksonia Forest Ravine, there is a forest of Dicksonia antarcticas, and many of them are in this caterpillar state. More photosgraphs of these caterpillars, and a trip report to the ravine are in my blog:

By the way, the ravine is like an enchanted world, like a mythical fairy land. You should visit it if you have a chance.

(Dicksonia Forest Ravine is in the north-western corner of Blue Mountains National Park, NSW, Australia. Click on the above blog link for the precise location.)

How to count 97 in French


I was interested in learning French after seeing this joke:

3 dogs are competing in a swimming race. There is an English dog named "one two three"; a German dog named "eins zwei drei"; and a French dog named "un deux trois". The dogs all swim across a lake. The English dog finishes first. The German dog finishes second. But the French dog is nowhere to be found.

Why?

Because un deux trois quartre cinq.

But it wasn't a joke when I learned that to count to 97, you say 4 * 20 + 10 + 7. I had a 6ure and 5 to my knees and pray God to 7 the French language on fire ... I had e9.

Fire Rainboow in Singapore


A fire rainbow is a rare phenomenon ... formed when sunlight refracts through ice-crystal clouds.

Here are the photos of a fire rainbow over Singapore in 2017-02-20, around 5:10pm-ish and lasted about 15 minutes. Wish I was there to witness it !

Government helps & steals


I'm from the government, I'm here to help.

By the way, the following statements are often attributed to Roman politician and orator Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC-43 BC), who once served as Consul of the Roman Republic:
     1.  The poor, work & work.
     2.  The rich, exploit the poor.
     3.  The soldier, protects both.
     4.  The taxpayer, pays for all the three.
     5.  The wanderer, rests for all the four.
     6.  The drunk, drinks for all the five.
     7.  The banker, robs all the six.
     8.  The lawyer, misleads all the seven.
     9.  The doctor, kills all the eight.
    10. The undertaker, buries all the nine.
    11. The politician lives happily on account of all the ten.

However there is no known source for these apocryphal sayings (or anything remotely resembling it) in Cicero's recorded letters, speeches, and works. Moreover, there is no record of them having been attributed to him (or anyone else) prior to 2012, when they were posted to an Occupy Wall Street-related forum. In other words, it is simply people attempting to demonstrate the aptness of a particular social or political viewpoint by putting these words into the mouth of a revered historical figure.

Clouds hugging top of mountain range


(Click on image to enlarge it.)
This photo is the Tinderry Mountain Range taken at 7:37pm, 2017 January 12, near the small town of Michelago, NSW, Australia ... specifically, on Monaro Highway, 1 km south of the turn off to Ryrie Street (into Michelago), and looking towards the east ~~~
The white stuff covering the mountain range is not snow. They are clouds. But notice it is clear blue sky everywhere !
Is there a meteorologist, budding meteorologist, pretend meteorologist out there who can explain this phenomenon?


By the way, the Tinderry Mountains are interesting to climb. Photos and an account of the climb are in my blog:
