Dust Storm

No I did not edit the picture, this photo is taken in my room at 7.40 in the morning today. The dust is not so thick anymore now but the wind is still very strong. According to the news, it's the worst dust storm in 70 years. And the scientist says there might be another one coming up again tomorrow and Friday. Scaryy.... I need to go stock up my food storage already!

Anyway, it's holiday babeh!! 2 weeks of mid term holiday, not that I'm going anywhere but still it's holiday!! Maybe not exactly a holiday as I have three assignments due when uni reopen. For now, I just want to curl up in my bed watching drama series!!

*praying for a rain*
*praying for the dust storm to go away*
*praying for no more dust storm tomorrow*
*praying for the mid term test results to be at least decent*

How to enlarge picture

Been wondering how did I manage to upload huge pictures? Imma telling you now!

You will need to log in http://draft.blogger.com instead of the normal blogger you signed into. Then upload pictures like normal. Good thing using draft blogger is that you can upload as many pictures as you want at one time, bad thing is when you're uploading you cannot continue to type the post until they are finished uploaded. But another good thing is you can just post the pictures anywhere you want instead of having to drag it down from top to bottom but I already found an alternative for it.

Okay back to enlarging the pictures. After you uploaded and posted, then go to edit HTML and this is the code where you change the size of the photo.

The size will normally be s320 if you choose medium, all you need to do is change the number to either s576, s640, s800, or even s1600 if you want a uber huge ass picture on your blog. Normally I use s576 for all the pictures.

After you have done, go back to compose, you will see the size of your picture will change from this

 to this

Voila, it's as simple as that. Oh one more thing, some blog templete with narrow content margin might not be able to do this, so you will need to change the content margin in your blog layout using HTML.

Hope this is useful. =D

p/s: that absinth doesn't belong to me.

2 more weeks!

It's already week 7 this week, 2 more weeks and I'm be on my mid term holiday! And, that also means 8 more weeks till finals and 12 more weeks till the end of the term! That's how fast time flies. I go to uni from Monday till Wednesday only, I don't even know how I spent my weekends and before I realize it's Monday again. sigh... I guess I have been wasting time a lot.

2 weeks ago, I went to ChamShan temple located in Morriset, it's around 40 minutes drive away from Newcastle. It was my first time visiting a temple in Australia and I was pretty excited about it. The temple was nice, the people were nice too! It's more of a cantonese speaking temple, but I'm glad I am able to understand it all thanks to the TVB dramas I have been watching all this while. Visiting the temple is now a fortnightly event for the uni newly formed Buddhist Society.

On a totally unrelated thing, I have tasted my first char koay teow in Australia!!! *big wet eyes* Even though it is not very authentic but the flavour and the fragrance of wonderful char koay teow is there! *bliss*

I just registered for IELTS exam in November, I really hope I can get at least 7 for each component so I don't have to retake it. I really need to brush up my English, I know my grammar is horrible and my vocab is limited. How to score like that! T__T Yesh yesh I know I should read more books but my reading phase comes and goes. And now I'm not in the reading phase. But on a bright side, I just bought 2 books during the book fair last month for 4 dollars each! All I need now is to get myself into reading it.

That's all for now, will update more! It's Wednesday again tomorrow!
