Mutualistic Symbiosis: Clownfish and Sea Anemone

“I can’t live, if living is without you..” A line from the song, Without You, originally sang by Harry Nilson in the 70’s and was revived by Mariah Carey in the 90’s. Such a lovely song, though it sounds disheartening, real-life relationships hold this words true.

Symbiosis describes close interactions between two or more different species. A relationship where two species live together for the benefit of both. Symbiotic relationships can be obligate or facultative. There are species who lives together by choice; facultative symbiosis, while there are those that can’t survive without the other; obligate symbiosis.

My first guitar, a dream come true..

It was just a dream, a dream that I longed to be realized when I was still in high school and in college. I love music, I love it so much because it strengthen my soul and gets me going in times of difficulties.

It will not only lift up my spirit but will make me feel fulfilled too. Continue reading “My first guitar, a dream come true..”

A message to my dear cousin on her 18th birthday.

Happy 18th Birthday! You are the fairest amongst all the “Tura” Clan and you’re clever too because you followed the disastrous step I’ve taken..hehehe..You are still young, always remember that things will change if you will take the first few steps to change it. I believe that you are happy with what you have right now but there’s more to life out there you’ve never seen. I wish to see you reaching for your dreams just like I do. I wish to see you having a different perspective in life being closer to our Creator. Having a baby or getting married is not the end of the world for us women. Sometimes it feels that way though 😀 . But it should not stop us to be ourselves and to reach our DREAMS. Continue reading “A message to my dear cousin on her 18th birthday.”

Hello Anthropocene Age!

Hello Anthropocene Era

The Anthropocene Age..

Hello Anthropocene Era
The Holocene meaning “entirely recent” epoch began 11,700 years ago after the major Ice Age. But recently, environmentalists and geologists are arguing about this buzzword “Anthropocene”. The term was coined by Eugene Stoermer and popularized by an atmospheric chemist and Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen in the year 2000. The word struck a chord to everyone’s mind. Anthropocene is a combination of Greek roots: anthropo– meaning “man” and –cene meaning “new”. All epochs in the Cenozoic Era end in “cene”. So here comes Anthropocene – The Man-Made Age.
