Filming Kok Oi Yee for "Prime Candidate"

Category : people

An Oak3 film crew led by Sharon Tan came down to film Kok Oi Yee in action for "Prime Candidate", a television series for Channel News Asia on active senior citizens. So our very active senior guide guided an amused bunch of museum volunteers through the Public Gallery.

Tomorrow the crew will play leapfrog in the forest and film Oi Yee as she leads the MacRitchie - Bukit Timah briskwalk.

The episode will be telecast on a Friday, sometime in March 2006.

So which is the smallest species of fish in the world? (Part II)

Category : pub

Following a suggestion of Maurice Kottelat, Ralf Britz put together a male and female Photocorynus spiniceps (left) and Paedocypris progenetica (right) to drive the point home that the latter is the smallest species.

He suggested, "Have a look. Ask around which one is the smallest!"

Maurice Kottelat opined, "A picture says more than 1000 words," obviously in reference to my verbose post. Sigh!
