[About this blog] Inspired by local soccer player Mike Lim during my rookie reporter days at Singapore Polytechnic, I set up this blog in August 2002. I feel that blogging is a novel platform to document interesting facets of my life and my thoughts on certain issues. [Email blogger] ephraim@singnet.com.sg

[the cotton tree]
who thought cotton grew on trees? well now i know that they do... just a stone's throw away from my office gate in camp, there lies a big old tree... and i just noticed today after fellow storemen alwyn and qm that the tree is actually blooming with cotton!!

apparently, the green pod when ripe will shed its shell and bingo, you get plenty of raw smooth untreated cotton...

so i took some cotton seeds and decided to plant them outside my office... maybe when i come back for reservist, i would see another big cotton tree...

quite interesting.... we have mango trees, rambutan trees and even cucumber shrubs....
