so we start off with the Twister! (and this round i win the game...woohoo~
**(some pictures are censor due to the nature of the game)**...this is the only decent photo >.<
Then some of the guys want to play RISK. and other group went to play beach ball, own group poker cards games and stuff... while the sky still cloudy!
At about 1am, finally the sky started clearing and more stars appear... so our search for deep skies object begins here... At the bottom of the tower, you have this balcony where u can lie down and gaze the stars... and the telescope can be set up behind on the concrete platform.
And I manage to see catch sagittarius before it set... and many other nice autumn constellations and star clusters, M31 galaxy in andromeda, hx clusters in cassiopeia and more... then at around 4am, Orion is high enough, and we get to see other winter constellations like canis major... Then at around 5am, the clouds came in again without mercy, soon all stars are hidden beneath the clouds...
So we went back to the tower, most of us are asleep, cannot tahan already, but a few of us and my juniors still awake! So we play poker cards to keep us awake till sun rise!
So at 730am, we started to wake everyone up for morning group photo-taking. It is very draggy to wake some piggy people, need to kick them then wake up lah! Got one even drool... I wonder what he is dreaming la - .-
So Here I am, trying to gather people... many of them are sleeping walking beings...
And need to get them position~
And finally... all smile on camera! The 2008 new generation of astronomers!
next, we head to the nearby food court... and we reach too early, 8am - the foodcourt open at 830am. So we stone outside... and doing alot of crazy stuff...
1. First crazy act spotted - taking photos of people sleeping... professionally~
2. Crazy act by Chris - May I know what is HE doing in the photo?? - weird post...
3. Crazy Anne - folding paper crane and put on the pond - like the feeling of the crane being drown into the water.... - sadist -. -
4. The photographer spotted man in green snapping... LOOK, i'm not the only one... the girl behind also snapping photos lor...
Finally, the food court open and we are the first few customers! All flood in and enjoy the air con,feel like sleeping lah... So after walking around enjoy the air con, then we buy the breakfast set! Yump!
This guy eat TOO FAST, eat the whole bread at one bite - .-
Our dear kafoo... put too much dark sauce on the egg... it look so black and sweet?
This is my breakfast set, as you can see I eat up all the eggs and bread, BUT never drink the coffee... how come ar? Because the Coffee too black le... I give the wrong order...- "Kopi O dont so black" - in the end Aunty give super concentrated, is undrinkable lah! waste my drink... Can die from caffeine if I drink few more slips..
So after the breakfast, we all went back to the tower, pack up and board the bus... not to mention, we have too many left over mineral water, next time I shall not be too kiasu sia... end up i need to bring everything back - cant bare to waste them. So thats all! Look forward for the next gathering!
