Christmas 2012

Merry Xmas everybody! It hasn't snowed here yet but the weather had been so cold until recently that you could see vague ice sculptures of almost anything...

And by anything, I mean even spider-webs! How cool is that! 
Well, not for the poor spiders of course.


I found the new mist system (above) at Morrisons pretty cool. Keep those veggies fresh.

And ohmygosh, we met Shiv from The Wanted at Selfridges while shopping for Xmas! 
Really kind to let us take pictures.

Candies for Christmas... and fruits. Very tropical no?

We went to a restaurant in Chinatown and I tried wonton soup for the first time in my life, t'was goood.

And then I got this in my fortune cookie which was really funny considering my first love ever was an anime character. Yes, not a human being but a drawing. His name is Sanosuke Sagara hahaah. Well, that's what you get for letting a cookie read your fortune hahaah but I'm glad that Sano hasn't forgotten me lol.

Well then guys, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you, once again, a very happy Xmas and new year. Happy holidays!

Visit to the Diamond Synchrotron

I recently had the fabulous opportunity to go to the Diamond Light Source at Didcot, courtesy of my master's mentor and supervisor. Although I'm researching on pneumoniae at the mo, both of them who are experts on X-ray crystallography, were really kind to let me experience this amazing time at the synchrotron facility and I absolutely loved each and every second I spent there!

 The pic below shows the electron storage area.
 X-ray hutch. Of course, you have to go through health and safety rules and regulations, as well as tests, before and while you are on the site.

It felt like I was in a set of a movie ^^" Kinda gave a Bond vibe hahaah. 
Hopefully, I can go back again soon :D

Here's an ariel view of the synchrotron. The Diamond Light Source is the UK's national facility. They also hold public open days so if you're interested, do check out their website here
