Stingray Migration -- Gulf of Mexico

This is actually old news but I just only received the email with the beautiful photos today. Haha.. it took almost 5 months for the news to reach my circle of friends. When I checked the internet, I reckon the first time this news appeared would be in June 2008. This is one of the earliest article I came across.

These stingrays looked like giant leaves floating in the sea. Apparently these stingrays migrate biannually to more agreeable waters. As they glide silently beneath the waves, they turn the blue water to gold off the northern tip of Yucatan Peninsula.

Sandra Critelli, an amateur photographer, stumbled across the phenomenon while looking for whale sharks.
She said: 'It was an unreal image, very difficult to describe. The surface of the water was covered by warmand different shades of gold and looked like a bed of autumn leaves gently moved by the wind.

Oh the video below has nothing to do with the Stingrays. I saw it and thought that it was a good reminder to us about global warming.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

I was having lunch with some of my colleagues this after and we were talking about the movies that are currently showing in the theaters. At the same time, we were also talking about some of the movies past. One of the one that we totally missed out was Transformers. I only remembered it when I was driving back. The sequel to last year's Transformers is called Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen.

This bit has been extracted from Wikipedia - Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is an upcoming science fiction film due for release on June 26, 2009. It is the sequel to 2007's Transformers, which was the first live action Transformers film. Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg return respectively as director and executive producer, while Shia LaBeouf reprises the role of Sam Witwicky, the human caught in the war between Autobots and Decepticons. The film introduces many more robots and the scope has been expanded to numerous countries, the most important of which is Egypt.

This is the trailer from YouTube.

These are the latest 2 video updates of the Movie. I so love their team song :)
