10th International Congress on Plant Molecular Biology

I've been waiting for this event for several months and now it has finally happened. I am really thankful and it's definitely an amazing experience to be able to listen and learn from the brilliant minds all around the world.  They're not only good in explaining their research but I really see the passion that they have in what they're doing. They're such an inspiration.

I was also able to meet my former boss and other scientists from IRRI. The scientific community is indeed a small world.

And of course, I got to explore the beauty of Jeju (even though around the conference site only). The weather was just perfect and we're so lucky the International Convention Center is just located near the coast.

Attending this conference and seeing the scientists from other parts of the world is truly an honor. I really wish I could be like them in the future.

Something always brings me back to you

Captivating. Soulful. Beautiful.

Every word and melody expresses the emotions buried deep within one's heart. 
Sadness, heartache, the struggle of loving and getting over someone.
But at the end of the day, 
"Something always brings me back to you."

This is the effect of missing someone though it's more of a one-sided feeling because that "someone" doesn't have a clue that someone is falling into his gravity.

You're never fully dressed without a smile

Something to perk me up on the first day of October. SJP on glee is And of course, Kurt and Rachel are amazing! Well, this is what you call "Fashion Meets Music".

You're never fully dressed without a smile. =)
(so true!)

Since my condition is getting quite better now (thank God! whew after four days of bed rest), I now have to face you my dear manus. Honestly, all I have right now is just the abstract. T_T It's still a long, long way to go and I only have very, very little time left before I hand it to prof. But after watching this video, I realized that I should write my manus with a SMILE. Hope it helps. Good vibes, good results...and miracles, please.
