This is Dan Brannen! A missionary all his Life and the National Director (US) of International Students Inc - an international organization that reaches out to international students all over the world.. Anyway, He's a great pal - we have this little fellowship called "after talk" where we have lunch and discuss the morning's sermon! He's a really faithful man of God!.. Anyway, he's going to Singapore soon and I really hope he can visit BRMC! I told him about the SS -esp all you young missionaries! He perked up when I said "missionaries"... =)  Posted by Hello

Well, a last look at the insect deathtrap! *Burp!* Posted by Hello

This is another look at the inside of the pitcher.. it must have had quite a good meal!..look at the masses of empty insect bodies! Posted by Hello

Well, this is the inside of a pitcher plant.. do you see those black stuff? Yes! Undigested insects!. The Exoskeletons of insects are made of Chitin which is an extremely tough substance. So all these insect's exoskeletons builds up in these pitchers until they are no longer effective in digesting anymore insects and they wither off.. So can you tell what insect was that? =) Posted by Hello

Pitcher PLants! These are plants that "consume" insects for their nitrogen source! These are not the usual suculent pitcher plants we see in the tropical forest though, but they're so cool! Posted by Hello

This is another picture of that Living Fossil Gymnosperm.. look at the cool twirling leaf it has! I have no idea why is that so.. but it does feel strange looking at a plant that might have existed before the dinosaurs. Anyway these plants must have Extremely long roots - the pots that hold them are about a metre or more deep! Posted by Hello

An Ancient Plant. This is a living fossil of how the first Gymnosperms (non-flowering plants) might have looked like! As you can see, they don't have the typical stems of modern day plants! Posted by Hello

These are one of the coolest Xerophytes (Desert plants) in the world! They look like rocks! In order to escape herbivory! Cool huh? and these Lithops can survive with just a few inches of rainfall a year!  Posted by Hello

Isn't it pretty? The Cherry Blossom trees make the quad just so pretty and magical!! I felt like I was in some japanese anime... and that some pikachus will pop out of the trees to play with me... =) Posted by Hello
