Pumpkin(Naked) Run, on the Halloween..

It happened for nearly a decade in Colorado, in the city of Boulder. In Halloween, this city got its wackiest tradition - Naked Pumpkin Run. Just imagine that, in the late night, everyone to the street with the Jack-O-Lantern ONLY for a jog.

People are basically naked, just with the pumpkin head and sneakers for a run. But too bad, this year there will be a STOP for this GREAT phenomenon as the Police Chief Mark Beckner fears things will get out of hands. He will station 40 officers and 2 SWAT team to patrol around the usual spots. Aarrghh...too bad....

Let's see what their mayor said about it...

"I'm a little old for it, but it could be pretty cool to be running around with a pumpkin on your head and not much else," says the 57-year-old mayor.

Cool? Haha..But this could NEVER happen in Malaysia of course.. Everyone will be jailed immediately, and the policemen will earn a fortune from proper and improper 'saman'..

See policemen, better RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!

A Tree Planted with My Name?

Wow!! Today received an email from Taiwan, from the executive of the elementary school that I went there as volunteering English and Mathematics teacher. When wanna go to hand up the Oceanography report to Dr. Liew, suddenly rain. No choice, I go to library to take a break there. Without my laptop(my laptop is in my room!), I was using my HTC to check email there and I saw his email with an attachment. I was so excited wondering what attachment it could be... So I quickly requested Gan to borrow me his laptop to check email(in the end facebook a while also la..) So, I open up my gmail account..Oh...It's a picture...But what are they doing, are they planting a tree or something??(thumbnail shown in gmail account)...Due to curiosity, I open the image immediately..


This picture shown up...Ohh....I thought they are planting a tree with my name on it...Haha..Who knows, they are smashing an alcohol bottle which is found in the school compound...Haha..
