The cute little phone has been handed over.

I'm doing this because I can (my previous phone has NO language options)



I went to Ipoh with 川, 君 and 洲. A heavy breakfast of dim sum at Fu San followed by white coffee from Old Town Coffeeshop, then off to a temple in a cave, 极乐洞. Sat around for a bit, then we went off to look for a famous curry mee stall, which was unfortunately closed. 洲 was disappointed.

Then, cendol, yim kok kai, 芽菜鸡. On the way home from Ipoh, we stopped at Bidor for some duck leg noodles.

Food expenses (per person): RM 30
Petrol and toll (per person): RM 37

Petrol is expensive.



The empty shell of an unwanted shop-house.

And something remarkable from 极乐洞- a dragonfly that would not flee. It remained still even with the huge optical set up uphovering 2 inches from its face.

woah nice trip and pictures. erm...haven't seen 洲 for ages. speaking of an irrelevent matter, I finally find some books (by Nayfeh on nonlinear oscillation and nonlinear interaction) that explain Floquet Theory in detail, although I haven't read them in detail yet. There are also a recent paper published on parametric oscillation on a wind turbine... these open my eyes. ;o

Albert:
Thanks, luck had a hand in this one.

LCF:
洲 is quite fine.

If i ever manage to recast parametric vibrations in terms of higher-dimensional geometry instead of using ODEs, I'll let you know.
