The Weeping Earth!

"the earth is weeping, forests are falling, Lynas is operating"

My country makes me gut-wrenching. Pathetic. Yes. Malaysia governing authorities have been cutting down trees more than they grow. This is not science fiction, the thicker the CO2 blanket, the warmer the Earth. Scientists, environmentalists had been warning about "the 11th Hour", look! Who cares?

Several years ago, my government approved development on reserved forests like Taman Rimba Kiara and Bukit Gasing. How could anyone even think about demolishing ancient forestation? Greedy imbeciles.  Would you dare demolishing your ancestors' tomb? Both of the reserve parks had been through months of protesting, petition signing to put a halt on the bulldozers.

Look at the approval of Lynas plant (radioactive), Chemical plants, it all blemishing my beautiful home, Kuantan. Imagine how many beautiful forest Lynas had put down for the refinery of a 140 football fields. How many magical flora, fauna lost their habitats? How long are we going to suffer under the governing bodies of lack in social responsibilities?

Before each and every flora, fauna extinct on the hand of my governing bodies, i would love to do a  documentation on my favorite creatures, Spiders.

Spiders are found worldwide on every continent except for Antarctica, they'd established themselves well across every habitat with the exception of air and sea colonization. Yes! They do live among us. Spiders are in fact, NOT insects, they are Arachnid, easily distinguish from insect as insects have six legs and arachnid have eight legs.


the biggest Spider i ever encountered! a size of my palm!

Featuring, my favorite shot of all time

and Bonus: Cutest Arachnid of all time, Harvestman

Dear Readers,
if you're one of those who love looking at flora or fauna, it's time for you to stand up, leave your Facebook or Twitter at home, NO! You won't die without Facebook for half a day! there are many NGOs and Youth Environmental Group out there! They need your help! Go out join the Fight for our environment.


Ps: if you're interested to join the environmental fight and couldn't locate any environment activists out there, just drop me an email @
