It's out! Chue Ee Kiam's "Singapore Splendour - Life on the edge"

Category : pub

08 Feb 2007 - I walked in to the museum to discover a signed copy of Chue Ee Kiam's "Singapore Splendour - Life on the edge" on my table. What a wonderful surprise!

Last November, I got a glimpse of the book as Ee Kiam went through the text with museum staff to identify some organisms and make some last-minute edits. I've been waiting for it eagerly since as it was almost ready then!

I was surprised by the final product and have been carrying it around with me, heavy though it is, to let others I meet share a discovery of its wonderful, colourful photos of organisms, scenes of many of Singapore's shorelines and faces of the community captured in the most delightful way.

I have to confess that I've yet to sit down to read the text but already the dust jacket is getting weathered! Once I do, expect reviews here.

Meanwhile, hop over to Simply Green.

Mr Budak ruminates on biodiversity seminars

Category : bejc

If ever our seminar speakers wondered about the impact their information and ideas expressed hads on their seminar audience, they'd have to look no further than blogger and Toddycat (Raffles Museum volunteer) Marcus Ng.

Inspired by speakers at the Biodiversity & Ecology Journal Club (BEJC) seminars held in NUS, he has penned some rather "ducky" (read you'll see why) post-seminar articles on his blog, The annotated budak. Some of these posts have appeared shortly after the talk while others, like his take on the talk by Naomi Pierce are apparently still fermenting on his hardisk. Well. we'll look forward to it appearing in his Biodiversity & Conservation posts!

Isn't it nice to the thoughts expressed in a darkened room in the university seeing the light of day in the blogosphere?

I met Marcus Ng through a web article he wrote about the Raffles Museum; originally posted to Aquatic Quotient in 2003, he republished it on his new blog the following year. Marcus has a finger or two in a variety of blogs and forums and helps circulate relevant biodiversity information there.
