Review Of : How To Train Your Dragon

Bookmark and Share



I've just watched ' How To Train Your Dragon ' yesterday.

It was very entertaining & it has a good storyline.

it is the
best animation so far this year!

I WOULD GIVE IT ;

My Rating :
4.75/5


Recommendations :
Recommended.

Synopsis :

Based on the book by Cressida Cowell, the story centers around a Viking teenager named Hiccup, who lives on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. The teen's smarts and offbeat sense of humor don't sit too well with his tribe or its chief... who just happens to be Hiccup's father. However, when Hiccup is included in Dragon Training with the other Viking teens, he sees his chance to prove he has what it takes to be a fighter. But when he encounters (and ultimately befriends) an injured dragon, his world is flipped upside down, and what started out as Hiccup's one shot to prove himself turns into an opportunity to set a new course for the future of the entire tribe.

Bookmark and Share
Well, Well..

Earth Hour Had Just Past.

DID YOU TURN OFF YOUR LIGHTS??

Alright, about 125 countries & regions took part in this year's Earth Hour.

More Info Below.

What single event will unite 3,500 cities, towns, and municipalities in 125 countries and regions -- along with at least 80 million Americans? What worldwide action is hugely symbolic yet so simple, even a child can participate?

It's Earth Hour, and it happens for the fourth time on Saturday, March 27, 2010, starting at 8:30 p.m. local time. Just turn off the lights, and you're in.

Landmarks like the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Empire State Building in New York, St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Sydney's Opera House, and the Acropolis and Parthenon in Athens will go dark for one hour.

Countries like the Czech Republic, Madagascar, Nepal, Panama, Saudi, Arabia, Lithuania, and the Cook Islands will participate in the light's out demonstration for their first time in 2010.

Yahoo! News Extracts : Last Chance to Get a Good Look at Mars Until 2012

Bookmark and Share
I was just browsing thorough Yahoo! as usual.

I stumbled upon this post!


On Thursday night, March 25, many people may look up at the sky and ask the question, "What's that bright star next to the moon?"

The answer for Thursday night is Mars, but that answer changes night by night as the moon travels along the ecliptic, the path the sun, moon and planets follow across the sky. If you ask the question again on Monday night, March 29, the answer will be the ringed planet Saturn.

Such conjunctions of the moon and planets are regular reminders of how rapidly the moon moves across the sky.

Mars was in opposition to the Sun on Jan. 29, when it appeared 14 arcseconds in diameter, 1/120 of the diameter of the moon. Two months later, it is much farther away, and has shrunk to only 10 arcseconds in diameter.

This will be your last chance to get a good look at Mars until it approaches the Earth again in 2012.

The sky these spring evenings presents a striking contrast between its western half, filled with the bright stars and constellations of winter, and its eastern half, with Regulus the only bright star. Mars sits in solitary splendor in Cancer, one of the most insignificant zodiac constellations, just above the plane of the Milky Way.

But there is much lurking beyond the dim stars of spring, for we are entering the realm of the galaxies. The constellation Leo alone contains five of the brightest galaxies in Charles Messier's famous 18th century catalog of deep sky objects.

When we look towards Leo, we are looking above the plane of our Milky Way galaxy at the depths of intergalactic space, unhindered by the clouds of dust and gas which fill our galaxy.

' THE GYEONGBOKGUNG PALACE '

This is the location where the Korean characters was created.

In the
Gyeongbokgung, also known as Gyeongbokgung Palace or Gyeongbok Palace, is a royal palace located in northern Seoul, South Korea. First constructed in 1394 and reconstructed in 1867, it was the main and largest palace of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty. The name of the palace, Gyeongbokgung, translates in English as "Palace Greatly Blessed by Heaven."

( extracted from Wikipedia )





' The stone pointed with arrows are to signify the rank & the position of the officers, ministers & generals.' ( above )





Above is a painting of the Irworobongdo.



Irworobongdo is a Korean folding screen with a highly stylized landscape painting of a sun and moon, five peaks which always was set behind Eojwa, the king’s royal throne during the Joseon Dynasty. It literally means "Painting of the Sun, Moon and the Five Peaks" and is also called "Irwoldo" or "Irwolgonryundo". The sun and moon symbolize the king and queen while the five peaks denotes a mythical place in Taoism. The screen serves to display the majesty of the Joseon royal court.

The picture below is showing a food called ' Zha Jiang Mein '
( the one on both left & right of the picture.)
Meaning, ' Fried Sauce Noodles '.

It is REALLY DELICIOUS!! :D

It is quite popular in Korea.


It costs around 4000 Korean Won for the Basic one & 6000 Korean Won for the one with seafood added onto it.

but I would suggest to you the basic one because you can taste more of the sauce.

Alright, by now you might be salivating... xP lol!

If you watch many Korean dramas or shows, you might have seen many of these roadside stalls covered with plastic covers..

Like this;

Yahoo! News Extracts : The world's only immortal animal?

Bookmark and Share
I was just browsing thorough Yahoo! , then this title caught my eyes!!


' The world's only immortal animal? '

Read On...


(Photo: Peter Schuchert)

The turritopsis nutricula species of jellyfish may be the only animal in the world to have truly discovered the fountain of youth.

Since it is capable of cycling from a mature adult stage to an immature polyp stage and back again, there may be no natural limit to its life span. Scientists say the hydrozoan jellyfish is the only known animal that can repeatedly turn back the hands of time and revert to its polyp state (its first stage of life).

The key lies in a process called trans differentiation, where one type of cell is transformed into another type of cell. Some animals can undergo limited transdifferentiation and regenerate organs, such as salamanders, which can regrow limbs. Turritopsi nutricula, on the other hand, can regenerate its entire body over and over again. Researchers are studying the jellyfish to discover how it is able to reverse its aging process.

Because they are able to bypass death, the number of individuals is spiking. They're now found in oceans around the globe rather than just in their native Caribbean waters. "We are looking at a worldwide silent invasion," says Dr. Maria Miglietta of the Smithsonian Tropical Marine Institute.

Korea Trip [ PART 1 ] - Namsan Tower a.k.a. N Seoul Tower

Bookmark and Share
I went to Korea a few days ago..
I will post about Korea in a series.. :)
So Do Visit My Blog For The Other Series.. Thanks!!

[ PART 1 ] - Namsan Tower



N SEOUL TOWER / NAMSAN TOWER.

I went to Namsan Tower a.k.a Seoul Tower a.k.a N Seoul Tower.
It was very very cold but it was an amazing view ....

Pictures Of The Tower;


Below is an extract from Wikipedia.

N Seoul Tower is a communication and observation tower located in Namsan Mountain, central Seoul, South Korea. Built in 1969, and opened to the public in 1980, the tower has been a symbol of Seoul and measures 236.7 m (777 ft) in height (from the base) and tops out at 479.7 m (1,574 ft) above sea level. It has also been known as the Namsan Tower or Seoul Tower. After the tower's original owner merged with the CJ Corporation, it was renamed the N Seoul Tower (official name CJ Seoul Tower).

Many visitors ride the Namsan cable car up the mountain, and then walk to the tower. The tower features a gift shop and restaurants on the ground floor. Visitors may go up the tower for a fee. There are four observation decks (the 4th observation deck, which is the revolving restaurant, rotates at a rate of one revolution every 48 minutes), as well as gift shops and two restaurants. Most of the city of Seoul can be seen from the top. Close to N Seoul Tower is a second lattice transmission tower.
