Downloaded my photos and entertained some by sending them the movie of me scaring off ducks ("it worked! It's vaguely amusing. Thank you for the most amusing thing I've seen this morning. ")

Canon's Photostitch is wonderful, though there are white splotches where my shots didn't overlap properly, and I can't bear to lop off parts of my image. Perhaps time will improve my technique.

There's a picture of this red castle between Rushton Triangular Lodge and Lincoln that, for the life of me, I cannot remember the name of. Any ideas?



Update: My sister has informed me that this is Tattershall Castle

I also seem to have taken a disproportionately large numbers of photos of Fountains Abbey.
A song from each show I watched:


Bombay Dreams - Shakalaka baby

Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby

Saw your face and the damage was done
You waked a spell that took me over
A brighter bulb right out of the sun
A lotus scented supernova

Catch the rythem, jump to the beat
The nights are warm and my words are tender
Can't escape, feel the heat
Lose yourself and the sweet surrender

(Woah-oh-oh-oh)
And the planets are colliding
(Woah-oh-oh-oh)
Fantasies are flying
(Woah-oh)
Simply no denying
There you are my Bombay lover...

Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
This is how it's really meant to be
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
Come and shakalaka with me
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
Nothing here is ever what it seems
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
Let me take you with me in my dreams

No no no no no no no no no x4

In a trance going out of my mind
You made a flame that keeps me burning
Come on baby, give me a sign
One look from you and the world stops turning

(Woah-oh-oh-oh)
Music gets exciting
(Woah-oh-oh-oh)
I need you here beside me
(Woah-oh)
I know you'll satisfy me
There you are my Bombay lover...

Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
This is how it's really meant to be
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
Come and shakalaka with me
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
I just wanna love you everyday
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
Promise me you'll never go away

No no no no no no no no no x4

Secret moon and enchanted dreams
Pray we share many nights like these
Million stars in the sky...

Oh oh, oh oh

Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby

You............

Ikh buri youju aana
(aaja re)
Hai bindiya puchyo jaana
(oh aaja re)
Iise qyo poy laata pobra na
(oh)
Shayee oh oh re
(na na na)
Ikh buri youju aana
(oh eh aaja)
Hai bindiya puchyo jaana ah ha ah
(haiyee haiyee)
Qyo poy laata pobra na
(Shay-oh)
Shayee oh oh re...

Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
This is how it's really meant to be
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
Come and shakalaka with me
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
Loving you is all I need to know
Shakalaka baby, shakalaka baby
Now you're here I'll never let you go

Mi leke jaana


Doll on a Music Box - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

TRULY
What do you see? You people gazing at me
You see a doll on a music box that’s wound by a key
How can you tell I’m under a spell I’m
Waiting for love’s first kiss.

You cannot see how much I long to be free
Turning around on this music box that’s wound by a key
Yearning. Yearning while I’m
Turning around and around


CARACTICUS
(What do you see? You people gazing at me)
Truly Scrumptious, you're truly, truly scrumptious

(You see a doll on a music box that’s wound by a key)
Scrumptious as a cherry peach par fete

(How can you tell I’m under a spell I’m)
When you’re near me it’s so delicious

(Waiting for love’s first kiss.)
Honest, Truly, you’re the answer to my wishes!

(You cannot see how much I long to be free)
Truly Scrumptious though I may seem presumptuous

(Turning around on this music box that’s wound by a key)
Never, never ever go away!

(Yearning. Yearning.)
My heart beat so unruly, because I love you truly

(While I'm turning around and around)
Honest, Truly, I do!


Any Dream Will Do - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Joseph
I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain
To see for certain what I thought I knew
Far far away, someone was weeping
But the world was sleeping
Any dream will do

Joseph & Children
I wore my coat, with golden lining
Bright colours shining, wonderful and new
And in the east, the dawn was breaking
And the world was waking
Any dream will do

Joseph
A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colours faded into darkness
I was left alone

Joseph & Children
May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do

Joseph
A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colours faded into darkness
I was left alone

Joseph & Children
May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do


I like this motto:

Seek - seek for cover
Save - save your own ass
Serve - serve and fuck off

Heh heh.
At my favourite airport now - KLIA. My favourite airline, MAS, has just delayed my already late flight from 11:40 to 12:25. I'd been reading for the past few hours (since before I got off my flight at about 7) and couldn't get to sleep, so I decided to pay RM 15 for 75 minutes of connection time at Burger King (which serves more stuff than the one in Singapore). Hell, since I'm already bankrupt, I might as well spend my last few Ringitt. Whee.

When I was getting off the plane, one airline stewardess came over to ask me how I found the book she had seen me reading, which someone I hardly knew mailed to me before I left - The Case For Christ - A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus, by Lee Strobel (I'm more than halfway through, but I don't find it very convincing. Naturally, I have been scribbling notes, which I will compose properly and share once I finish the book and my 6 pages of notes from my London trip are up - ie in a long while). A theological discussion was then launched, and she heaped the standard lines on me - nothing that I haven't heard before or haven't a counter to. And as usual she like everyone else had no answer but recourse to faith.

Hi again,

Back to cooking (therapeutic!!!); i did lunch for housemate and LTG (my lunch-time gang, all guys) minus one member who was busy plus one new member added this semester. Lunch was steamed chicken drumettes, sauteed mushrooms plus shredded cabbage (with bay leaves for flavouring) and roast chicken.

Dinner was originally for 2 housemates plus cousin; my cell group came over for a prayer meeting in the afternoon so i asked them to stay for dinner. Was planning on steak, braised pork ribs in soya sauce, and stir-fried veggies ... in the end i cut the steak into strips and stir-fried them with onions in hoisin sauce, stir-fried tsientsin cabbage and carrot batons, defrosted a chicken for doing ayam buah keluak (peranakan dish- chicken in candlenut gravy). Managed to stretch it for 7 people!

Oh no just read that and it sounded terribly boring... who would be interested in andrew's culinary adventures. But all this goes to negate the failed attempt at brownies that i baked (turned out part mushy, part rock-hard) last friday before ocf.

In a Youth Hostel in Llangollen (Wales, the land of names starting with "ll") now. My Grand Tour of England and Wales is going rather well so far. Will be back in London on Tuesday or Wednesday night, in Singapore Saturday afternoon and the Middle of Nowhere (Sungei Gedong) on Sunday night.

The Internet is actually *fast*, and cheaper than the one supplied in the 3 other Youth Hostels I've been in so far with Internet Access, as it's supplied by a different cartel.

Damn camera ran out of batteries only 4 days after a full charge, and my spare non-rechargeables coincidentally went flat too. Jiggling with my brother in law's 2 spare batteries wasn't any help, so I lost some wonderful shots of the mountains, and of me and him in the middle of a stream.

Weather so far has been great - only drizzled on one day and really rained when we passed briefly through the Lake District and yesterday, our first day in Wales. Today was bright and sunny, giving us great views of Snowdonia, with the sheer mountains of slate and green valleys. Tis the kind of terrain that puts one in the mind of Middle Earth and similar worlds, and I snapped away - 128MB doesn't look like too vast a capacity now!

Glad to see Andrew is entertaining everyone, and a roaring trade is going on in comments.
