Starfish And it’s Yellow Underside

Starfish and it's Yellow underside

Photo first posted here.

Yellow underside of a starfish. It really makes me wonder why sea creatures are so colorful despite the fact that they are mostly underwater. It turns out, according to an article that I read, that communication signals, mating, camouflage, territory and other factors are used for color information and fine spatial information to encode species identity.

And at the rate the ocean degradation is happening, these shallow water colorful sea creatures won’t have much protection from mostly humans who them more harm and damage. So please, put back these starfish and other sea creatures in the water if you are done taking their photos. As much as possible, leave them where they belong: to the sea.

Stage Performance

I have this dream of seeing my children perform onstage like these kids. My eldest daughter playing the piano while the two younger ones are playing guitars.


I know it’s a good start that we have these musical instruments, a piano (at my MIL home), a guitar for the kids and a Korg at home but the children are reluctant to be taught by other people.

They just resort to playing “by ear’ or watch video tutorials on how to play.

I hope I could still convince them before they get a bit older.


This is my daughter, playing a few tunes in the piano, while waiting for the time to dress up for her prom last week.


This is the piano in my MIL’s home which my husband uses to play. It is in need of repair because some keys don’t play anymore while the others are a bit difficult to use. The piano hinges are also in need of repair.

The children in the family love to play here too. When there are visitors, hubby plays what they would request and there would be lots of singing.
