A New Haircut To Face Life's Challenges

Back to basics, I re-installed this Blogpress for iPhone app again to try out blogging on the fly. The last I tried this application was way back in 2011 if I'm not mistaken. Anyway this would be a short post to share on my new haircut which only cost like RM9.90 in Taman Desa Setapak.





So what changed? Well, for starters I maintained my hair length on the top, back and front while snipping off the sides. Wanted to try that latest 'undercut' look. Unfortunately my hair wasn't long enough to pull it off. Nevertheless, shown above is the result. Here's looking forward to the new challenges ahead, which I feel is coming real soon. To infinity and beyond!

COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY comes more than three decades after the debut of Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, Carl Sagan’s stunning and iconic exploration of the universe as revealed by science. Seth MacFarlane teamed with Sagan’s original creative collaborators – writer/executive producer/director Druyan and co-writer, astronomer Steven Soter - conceived the 13-part series that will serve as a successor to the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning original series.

As with the legendary original series, the new COSMOS is the saga of how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. The series brings to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge, transporting viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest – and the smallest – scale.

The series invents new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts are presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.

“We’re thrilled that COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY will be airing not only on the National Geographic Channel, but also simulcast on Nat Geo Wild, Nat Geo Channel HD, FOX, FX HD, Nat Geo People, and FOX CRIME, and FXHD. This is a follow up production to Carl Sagan’s revolutionary Cosmos: A Personal Voyage and we believe that it will captivate the audience like never before and that they will truly enjoy the show,” said Keerthan Adyanthaya, General Manager of FOX International Channels.
