It was bloody tiring and stressful at times, but loads of fun. The sky decided that it would desist with its daily afternoon torrential downpour, took a rain check (pun intended) and allowed the sun to come out. Although, the heat was nothing like Raptor Watch's as the Zoo's foliage gave us some reprieve from the heat to a certain extent.
It was indeed a success of sorts, as we were able to reach out to the visitors of Zoo Negara on Tiger conservation as well as introducing to the public the new Tiger hotline.
While the missus was at the "Art Adventure" station, painting the kid's (young and old) faces, hands and other appendages, I was at the "Tiger Threat" station, showing how scientists make plaster cast of a wild tiger's pug mark.

Wot? What do you mean it's doesn't look like a pug mark?
I get to play with plaster of paris and dirt. Bliss

When the KL skyline looks ominously bleak, especially on a Monday morning, work is the last thing on one's mind. And the office's uber-efficient air-conditioning does not help in any way either.
But then again, a little drizzle outside won't stop an enterprising chap like me to waste away the day with some productive work. As such I surfed the net for some ideas on how best to do this. Lo' and behold, there is a website or forum to be exact on this, which just proves to you that I'm not the only slacker in the world.
Unfortunately, not all could be utilised though for a number of reasons (i.e. I still need a bloody job at the end of the day). So, from 8.30am this morning, till about 4.53pm, I have accomplished the following;
#1. Make paper airplanes and fly (more like spin and crash) them across the room.
#2. Mess about on Facebook.
#3. Make a jug of coffee and finish it on one sitting. I now blink every 10 minutes.
#4. Switch off the department's lights and make shadow puppets with my headlamp and my hands on the wall. I know know how to make an orang utan. *smug*
#5.To signal the end of a conversation, I clamped my hands over my ears and grimaced.
#6. Walked sideways to the photocopier.
#7. While riding in the elevator during lunch time, I gasped dramatically every time the doors opened.
#8. Didn't use any punctuation in all my conversations.
#9. Called I.T. helpdesk and told them that I can't seem to access any porno web sites.
#10. For an hour, referred to everyone I spoke to as "Dave".
#11. Then in the next hour, after every sentence, I said 'Mon' in a really bad Jamaican accent. As in: "Who left their original documents on the photocopier, Mon?".
#12. As often as possible, skipped rather than walked.
God, I am bored, aren't I?
