Terrestrial recce, Pulau Semakau, Singapore, 4th August 2007

Much has been known for Semakau's intertidal fauna and flora through the joint efforts by various parties, which concern about the biodiversity of the landfill island in the recent years, species of the terrestrial component are rarely reported. Species list of forest plants and birds have been listed, while that of invertebrates and other mammals almost remains unknown. As an attempt to fill this gap, Hung Kei, Hung Bun and myself form a volunteer survey team to recce the site, and to conduct a "quick and dirty" first hand data collection.

Starting point of the forest trail

To access coral reef beach of the island, everyone has to pass a forest trail. For those have been there, the density and the strength of mosquito bite are surely the unforgetable experiences. In many a time, people will just covered themselves with whatever means, or/and running through it so as to get less bites. But for us, we are aiming to survey this place, back and forth slowly looking for various kinds of insect and spiders. Those mosquitoes were happily enjoying their unexpected food source.

The recce trip is rewarded quite well with a list of of spider species, and some of insects which have been spotted....

I've had my iPad for yon 2 months now and I'm forceful you, Steve jobs certainly has his in progress of converting people to be a Mac/Apple fan. I own the iPad without 3G because I didn't be deficient in to entertain to indemnify in behalf of a new specialty in rank to get the micro SIM card. So I've kinda just lived with my iPad only where there's wifi connection. Which are aplenty anyway at Starbucks, Mcdonalds, and the libraries. This was before my new zealand mate introduced me to a superb way around this pretty pickle -- a 3G wifi router AP that supports GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, HSUPA, HSDPA, UMT and EDGE!

I purchased the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-16971-Huawei+E5830+3G+WiFi+Router+AP+%28WCDMAHSUPAHSDPAUMTEDGEGPRSGSM%29.html]Huawei E5830 3G WiFi Router AP (WCDMA/HSUPA/HSDPA/UMT/EDGE/GPRS/GSM)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com, in the Networking group, underneath my new zealand mate's encouragement, and I believe he gets points or commission from my purchase, since he's a DealtoWorld.com affiliate. The router AP is tremendously little, lightweight and convenient. So these days I can weld to wifi anywhere with mp iPad! I no longer call to go in quest of on a trip and not up to par seeking a wifi AP at cafes etc. Nor put in so much of my shekels on caffeine overdose at Starbucks and other cafes. In addition, the 3G Wifi Router AP supports graceful much all the bandwidths -- GPRS,GSM,WCDMA,HSUPA,HSDPA,UMT,EDGE. Take off a look at pictures I've uploaded of the Huawei 3G WiFi router that has made my effervescence so much easier, and is promoting a healthier caffeine-free lifestyle. It proves that a geek lifestyle does not unavoidably bear to undertake manual labourer in assistance with coffee.

And to over recall I was taking into consideration paying supplement to upgrade to the iPad that supports 3G! I'm so glad that that's not indispensable anymore with this 3G wifi router AP. I can righteous weld to the internet wherever I am with the Huawei 3G Wifi Router, as extensive as there is signal. This is not a technology thingumajig per se, but it has certainly made my individual plainly more effectual! More than that, I'm skilled to prevent my money that I would normally throw away on Starbucks, McCafe, and other cafes with wifi! Which, through the fail, makes me wonder whether it's a ploy at near Steve Jobs, to organize launched the 3G iPad version no greater than much later, so that wifi cafes can enjoy piles of trade from iPad wifi version. But I digress.

The 3G WiFi router AP I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] would possibly also be clever to discharge me download and play about with my apps on my iTouch, granted I haven't tried it yet. Shouldn't be a problem I should think. This $100+ may be the best bills I've spent since it enables me to entertain a species of WiFi nucleus wherever I am. If I was more entrepreneurial, I can even start charging other geeks at cafes without WiFi for the benefit of present access to them. I'm steadfast I can without doubt pocket back the $100 this go to pieces b yield! Alternatively, peradventure I can start being an affiliate of DealtoWorld.com too, since I'm starting to come by more gadgets and tools there, and have been spreading little talk up to my children and friends. Into the bargain, Christmas is coming in less than 2 months' continually, and I recollect this Huawei 3G WiFi router would make a awesome grant concerning many of my tech geek friends. I'm sure they'll also appreciate how trim and chill the router looks!
