I was Busily Buzzed

(Using my handphone's camera) Monday assembly.
This morning during assembly, there was a prize rewarding ceremony for the winners of last week's 'Science & Mathematic Week' various competitions (I was too busy last week to blog about it). I forgot to bring my camera, and borrowed a fellow colleague's instead - I was the designated cameraman.


His camera was smaller than mine, yet more powerful.... I hate my life :(   [ixus 12.1 megapix versus Sony 8.1 megapix] But this is not an entry about my gadgets are....


As I was calmly snapping many pictures at the rostrum, in front of the rest of the school, I noticed something I had seen before, but at that particular time, was so perplexing.


I had become a mini sun, orbited by many tiny flying organisms.... There are insects flying close and around me ONLY!


Before any of you scream foul things like ; ZOMBIE!!! You CURSED UNDEAD You!! Or You just STINK (when was the last time you had a bath)!! the insects were not flies or any of its relevant cousins. They were just fruit flies and some black bugs very much like bees (because I always see them among flowers).


My first thought was really; Do I really smell bad? (yes, ha ha ha to you too). I seldom wear perfume and if I do have the stench of rotten fish, the students (ah you know kids these days...) would say so - immediately. So cross that out.


My next idea was.... I remember that some animals and insects can produce pheromones, the chemical that attracts the opposite sex. Wow! Do I really OOZE sexual aura in the megawatt range? WOW!


I had to rule that out too when the Principal gave me the eye; as mine were unfocused, plus a weird grin with living satellites zooming around me.


Oh well... that's one mystery of the universe that I cannot find the answer to. :)

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog.
I found this very amusing, and yes, you are right about the pheromones, but some insects are attracted to colours too, especially yellow or orange.
Hope to chat again with you.

There is such a difference to see all the students sitting on the ground. I think it is a good idea personally. You can fit more bodies in when they have to sit closer and not take up so much space with chairs. You did a nice job taking the photo through the pretty archway. I like that angle.

Lovely pic. 12.1 megapixel cam sure rocks! :p

And flies...Hmm.. I wouldn't know. I am shit scared of roaches and they single me out in a room full of 20 people. Any ideas why? Can it be the smell of fear? Are you scared of flies??? :)

Buddy, you just keep telling yourself it was because of your sexual magnetism that the bugs decided to descend on you.

Alice; I was wearing all black by the way :) Will comment more on your blog(s) soon.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Tenchi; I am trying to use different fonts for different entries.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Technobabe; They have to sit on the asphalt when the assembly is longer than normal i.e. on Mondays. I love that arch, the red bougainvillea was truly ancient.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Choco; Cockroaches follow you because of your shadow. Nope, I am not afraid of flies. But you know flies love smelly stuff.... I hope I am not one.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Casey; Yes, the bugs love me. The bugs love me. The bugs love me.... I am a macho macho man! lol

Rock Chef said...

That is a great photo - do those extra pixels really make that much of a difference? Only if you enlarge too much, to be honest!

Choco said...

Shadow??? Really?? Is that true??? Wow. I never knew! :|

But. But. When inside a room, there is no shadow, right? Then how come they single me out? Tell. Tell. Please. :)

Tenchi said...

different font = different mood?

didn't know u had change hp...where is ur LG?

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Rock Chef; Size matters for us men (ehem ehem...). The ixus was 1/2 the size of my camera (Sony) yet it was almost twice as powerful.

And yes, I do love to enlarge the photos.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Choco; There IS shadow everywhere. Especially under your soles when you run :)
It's a survival trait, cockroaches seek dim dark places for safety.
You move, the shadow move, they chase!
This is fact.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Tenchi; Nope, just playing along with fonts.... still using my ol n trusty LG.
