Jalur Gemilang in Africa

its V for VUVUZELA!

Its world cup fever and everyone is talking about footballs; anywhere and everywhere; football lovers or non football lovers; men or women. Football spectators all around the world predicted this year's world cup wont be as great as the previous one but they proved themselves wrong! its been a week now since the 1st ball was kicked and hey, we really can feel it, the heat, the madness, the loudness, etc. and yes, speaking about loudness, i believe what actually makes the 2010 edition of world cup special and different is non other than Mr. Vuvuzela. Its actually a tradition for the local people to blow thier vuvus (yeah, sounds so wrong, i know) during the match...the longer it takes for their favorite team to score the louder and crazier they'll get. kinda distracting + irritating at first (especially for the players and the commentators) and some even came out with the idea of banning it from the stadium, but seems like everyone is adapting themselves to the tradition now since we can see, i mean HEAR the sound of vuvuzelas almost at every single matches...LOL! wads 2010 FIFA world cup without Vuvuzela right? im so looking forward for the rest of the matches...

World, meet VUVUZELA...LOL!

p/s: me myself personally love vuvuzela and will get myself one, one day....

Fungal inhibition test

We did the test couple weeks ago. well, as you could see the growth of the fungus (R. solani) is inhibited along the circle...dats the point where the samples are dropped...kinda successful actually (i think) cause the plasmid (dat inhibit the growth) is successfully inserted into the vector...haha
