Mr Budak on Paedocypris progenetica

Category : pub

Marcus Ng (a.k.a. Mr Budak) writes about Paedocypris progenetica on his blog site, "The annotated budak."

He is a prolific writer and started this blog in 2004. One of his first posts was the republished article, "We are not alone!" about biodiversity and the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research.

It was originally published in Aquatic Quotient in Nov 2003 where he is still active - he posted news of the Paedocypris progenetica discovery there quite early.

A subscriber of Ecotax, he attends research seminars at NUS when he can and recently wrote up Kristina Zitzler's talk as "Shrimps in Sulawesi: A biogeographical survey" (03 Nov 2005).

Peter Ng - Full Professor, NUS!

Category : news

Congratulations Peter Ng, director Raffles Museum, on being promoted to full professor! Early this morning, department staff discovered an email from our head of department (NUS Biological Sciences):

------ Forwarded Message
From: Hew Choy Leong (Head, Biological Sciences)"
Date: Fri, 27 Jan 2006 09:20:07 +0800
Subject: Peter Ng - promotion to full professorship

"Dear all,

On behalf of the department, we would like to congratulate Peter for his promotion to full professorship.
Peter, with your notoriety in the field, you fully deserve the promotion and recognition.
Our warmest congratulations and please keep up the good work.

Choy Leong"

Hearing Peter's voice in his office ("the crab is in"), , I busted down his door and caught him by surprise as you can see below. I knew he was chatting with Raffles Museum Associate Chua Ee Kiam so I stretched over and switched him to speaker phone and we congratulated him together, enjoying his discomfiture. Of course he complained about all this attention...

Peter in mid-sentence, bemused by my sudden appearance at the door, complete with camera.

Peter gesticulating to Ee Kiam on the other end of the line!
