Owl-The Silent Hunters Of The Night

By on July 20, 2011


Owl are beautiful but I’m not really a typical owl lover. They terrified me. I’m scared and my phobia peaked  to see their big wide eyes and sharp talons, My feelings for them bloomed and developed very slowly because they don’t have the social behavior like my pet dogs and cats. They were even associated with evil spirits. This reputation probably comes from their haunting calls and silent flight. They even eat the little beautiful birds that frequent my backyard but, still something really adorable about them.

In fact, until recently, photographs of owls from these 3 crews piqued my curiosity and I soon became fully enamored of these birds. I’m not a scientist, ornithologist or a zoologist. No matter what role we played in your minds, We all have the same thing in common. We are all interested in the study of life.

Three young nature photographers took the shots to capture the moment that defines the subject.  (From left ) Fadhil Jumiran, Muhammad Omar  and Aizat Rosli: These  3 owl crews will take you into the woods to call owls for sightings. There was an action and good atmosphere in the middle of the night to shoot and getting the best shot, this is what it is all about.

The owl crews favorite trail is Sungai Manik Teluk Intan, where the photo was taken. It is a great photo spots, perfect site and logical route to trail the owls. One of the best things about trail is that they are easy to reach and a great site to cater wildlife photographers.  Wearing an orange shirt, Photographer Aizat Rosli, an active member of Pixel Pro. He was also present during the shooting of the ‘’EGRETS – THE MIGRATORY BIRDS.

In here, I wanted to show and share few things that you didn’t know. After this, From the images itself, you have to admit that these creatures are really pretty cute and you can now relate how owl living in each place in order to survive.

The shooting was planned ahead, bringing with them the right equiptment. Just like the night birds, photographers were enjoying the night photographing the owls, bringing with them a goodnight flashlight. It’s not easy to photograph owls, you have to hunt the flight path and look for a good location to do it because owls are not tolerant of people. A good distance and being prepared will get you better images. To get a good snap can be predicted with a little observation just like these. I guess, the distance occasionally shoot makes the owl less threatened.  You can view the distance between the owl and the photographers here.

This is the Barn owl. It has  heart – shaped face and a straight forward eyes. What do you think?   From the title itself,’’THE SILENT HUNTERS OF THE NIGHT’’. Who is the hunter? Is it the owl or the photographer? For me, It work both ways. The owl hunts for food at night and the photographers hunts for the owl to shoot. This owl appeared to be very white, and it’s already common in most areas.

Observed the owl’s feet. Have you noticed the sharp talons? A body part like these contribute to their eating capability. An owl hunt for prey and have strong feet with curved talons. You can see the next images on how owl make use of their sharp talons.

This is a natural habitat for them. Most owls are nocturnal.

It looks real and a true take.

I’m showing you everything about these species, and you’ll learn a lot through looking at the pictures alone.

LITTLE OWL

This diminutive Little Owl is one of the most familiar owls of open countryside, often being spotted perched on a fence post or tree stump. I’ve seen this kind of owl in our surroundings. This is probably the most common. I can even can tell the characteristics of owl living in a place like these. They have to adapt themselves to their habits to get food and sustain life. What do owls eat?

Awesome! Owl can hunt successfully in the dark. It carries its prey up to a branch to eat. But, what was that?  It’s a frog and it is still alive! The owl hits the prey with its feet as shown in this photo.

This is a very interesting shot and my major interest, to find out what they eat. An owl is a bird of prey and they are predators too. Many owls are active only at night because of their keen senses of sight and hearing.

What do owls eat? Encircled image of the owl’s prey, it was a frog. Many owls feed mainly on furry animals such as mice, moles, squirrels etc. They often swallow the smaller animals whole. When an owl lands on its prey, the owl hits the prey with its feet. If the prey is still alive, it breaks the animal’s neck with a quick bite. Owls can kill animals as large as they are or even larger. They also eat insects, worms, lizards, spiders, frogs, rodents and small birds. Impressive

The image will speaks for itself.

I feel great to share my story and  beautiful pictures with you. It’s my responsibility at the same time. To see the images alone is already learning from it. To see is to inform and will learn the truth about it.

People have looked into the forest and seen the same kind of birds that we see today. It’s high time for you to  make and share your time with them because this  will take you a step closer to love the birds.  Just like me, I wrote this as an’’ Expression of Love’’ to the birds and my contribution to wildlife.  Let us join our hands, help and support my cause in protecting wildlife. If you and I will support each other then, We can do it better. Let birds  be a part of your life. Someday, you’ll help lead and make world a better place for the animals. If you do not spend more time outside during the night to see the owl, try to take the chance to search. It is very safe to protect your inner fearful feelings. Much more wonderful to view it along over a cup of hot tea.

I would like to thank Alex Chan of Pixel Pro Photography Malaysia for providing images and for the kind permission to reproduce all photos and to the 3 owl crews.  My good friends;  Aizat Rosli, Fadhil Jumiran and Muhammed Omar. who took the good shots. Thank you very, very much.

Egrets – The Migratory Birds (Part 2)

By on July 15, 2011

Photographed by: Pixel Pro Photography, Malaysia                                Part- 1  2

COVERAGE OF THE EGRETS

The trail and river cruise going  to the  Perak river of Teluk Intan, Malaysia.  Pixelpro photographers  following the logical route to shoot the egrets is the Part 2 version of the first article that was published earlier, ‘’Egrets- The Migratory Birds.’’ Both 2 articles took 4 days from conception to completion.

In here, You can see the professional photographers capturing the scenes and what happens along the way going there. I was amused to see the bird’s paradise. It is really a quiet and ideal place for them. For me, To write something about the birds is a very satisfying experience. To be honest, The reason why I want to get up things with professional photographers? It is because we share the same passion and values. Passions for ‘’Photography’’ and ‘’Our Love for the Animals.’’ I don’t want to miss every details of it. This is a combined ‘’Labor of Love’’ between the photographers and me. Photography is such a wonderful and memorable way to document the place or the subject itself.

I don’t want to encourage  pro. Photographers to formulate questions about this because I’m not a photographer itself. Therefore I don’t know anyting about technical details  about photography. Hence focusing only  to the birds  itself.

The Story of the Egrets (Part 1)  is an inspirational tales of wildlife. I feel great to share not only my story but also the spectacular and timeless  Pixelpro photos for my readers. These photos alone makes me want to visit Malaysia. Let’s get started.  Snap and Enjoy!

The  Sungai Peruk river of Teluk Intan, Malaysia.

 

It is a touch of wildlife.

The boatman was even more excited  to be with the group.

Along the way to the Bird’s Paradise.  At around 6:00 a.m. Pixelpro Photographers going there by boat.

Aizat Rosli,   waving his hand, He ‘s a friend of mine.  He was among with the group who went there.

 

Taking photos of the location. I was energized by the views itself. River cruise is not only an exciting way to travel but a good sights you can see  along the way.

This is the destination. The Bird Island is a paradise home for the egrets.  Full view of the Egrets home. The egrets looks like a small white paper torn over the mangroves. It looks like a paper airplane.  The mangroves is a transit area to feed and rest for the night.

Powershot Moments. As you can see the photographers  are always ready and their camera within reach to shoot anytime. This activity is a far long shooting session. I think the light conditions of the day is good.

I think, They will really create images worth talking about and it was true.

The shooting begins..

 

Alex Chan and company. What a relaxing way to capture the birds! This is the right place and time.

Beautiful setting. Impressive number of birds flying aimlessly.

The large dispersal flocks travelling along the way. This proves that Egrets are Migratory Shorebirds.

Taking and capturing pictures like this is a witness to the wonderful site.

It is a pro. series.

I feel good. This photo will definitely adds life.

Aizat’s way of capturing  egrets  movement in flight. Let us see his different movements and techniques. We will all learn from him.

What a pro! What is important is, He feels comfortable with this position. All images  came out to be very fantastic.

Aizat’s smart shots and it’s worth talking about . How I wish  to do this.

What makes a place unique? To see the flying birds encircling around makes it unique.

At sunset, Each one flies to its own specific tree to sleep.  Amazing! Great numbers of egrets. Just like, I was hypnotized by this scene.

 

6:30 p.m. here. The photographers waited until their lovable creatures gets to sleep.

Night skies, Dose of refreshing night breezes that blow along the river. The long day shooting ended

The egrets sleeps but, the story will not end up here…I just hope the survival of these species will continue to multiply through the ages. They are very much an integral part of our ecosystem.

I really appreciate you guys for sharing  your photos with me and that makes  your efforts worthwhile. I’m looking forward to the next version of the Migratory Birds Part 3  soon. I hope guys we will continue raising conservation and awareness to save the Wild birds.  Thank you very much Alex Chan , Aizat Rosli and other Pixel Pro Photography club members.

Egrets -The Migratory Birds (Part1)

By on July 11, 2011

Part-   1   2

Photographed by: Pixel Pro Photography, Malaysia

I love birds.The only creatures on earth with the gifts of both flight and beauty.  Watching birds indoor and outdoor brings me closer to nature. Through watching these species, I developed my patience as I truly appreciate the natural beauty of nature around us.  Bird’s life seems to be eternal, but they are dangerously threatened by human activities.

Just Recently, A friend of mine posted photographs on facebook.  It was a portrait of a bird, photos of egrets flying through the blue skies of Malaysia. I was captivated by the beauty of the egrets because it appeared to be real. I was in contemplative mood at that time,  all my attention was into birds, and thought, it’s an interesting subject to write about.I sent a message directly to my friend. Egrets are the top of our agenda, anything about it and related to nature.

Few days after, my plan quickly paid off. We began exchanging ideas, messages, and sending me photographs of different species of birds. I’m happy with the clarity people there care to share. I did some research on birds, even meeting with the zoologist of wildlife. I have gathered plenty of captivating photos of birds from these talented photographer who captured the beauty of natural world. Believe it or not!  We reached up to more than 90 photographs-. What a great number of pictures! These birds taught us a lot of friendship. Let’s meet him!

 

Alex Chan, a professional photographer and Director of Pixel Pro Photography with his club members captured the shots of migrating birds that flies through the blue skies of Malaysia. Just to catch the glimpse of these beautiful birds, They made the most of this opportunity by taking river cruises to spot  the migrating egrets along the  Perak river of Teluk Intan.  Perhaps, having a great name means a great deal of responsibility to share images, good news and events.  All photographs was majestic and impressive that  I would like to share with you  and the stories behind it. Not even a story that was told many times. This is a quality work in perfecting the shots with his camera. You can see it by yourself. Be the judge!

His camera shines giving the freedom to capture life in different forms. Alex says, ‘’My passion for the birds and having a camera that match our vision is imperative. I photographed  birds in natural habitat and my mission is to save it. I have taken my camera everywhere with me around. A camera that I can depend on. Something that would be the least of my worries so I can concentrate on capturing the birds. When you are shooting on a trip, you must be ready always. Photography is quiet a difficult and challenging task, the exposure of image and apparent brightness is very important. It’s hard to locate the birds, they hardly ever stay still.  you can’t go closely and approach them. This is the kind of gear that delivers great image performance, quality that you can rely on it. This model is more than enough for sharing it on web’’.  The picture speaks. Now, Let us check the main subject.

Photographers in action.-Aizat Rosli and company  Taking shots of flying birds can be quiet a challenging task. This shot is inspiring!

 

The subject:  CATTLE EGRET (Migratory Shorebird)

This is critically important, to find and discover the beautiful egrets alive and well in its natural habitat.  Let us know more about it.

  THE LONG DISTANCE MIGRATION AND THE ARRIVAL OF THE EGRETS. 

The moment you’ve been waiting for. The  much awaited event. The arrival of the birds from all parts of Asia. What a dream to see impressive number of birds!  How I wish to be here at this time of the day so I can see it by myself. I can’t feel the emotion but it somehow gave me the feeling of enthusiasm to see the birds migrating in flocks is already enough. These egrets flying south, heading to destination.A far away place is an opportunity. A warmer climate and a good breeding ground. Bird migration is the regular seasonal journey undertaken by many species of birds for food availability, habitat and weather.Egrets abandon the area where there is no more use.

Egrets used V- formation when migrating.  Amazing! I only live once to see this and I was very happy. I felt like, I was very close to nature to see the heavenly blue sky. It reminds me of my science teacher during my high school days. I have learned from her about larger birds like egrets, flying in flocks reduces the energy cost that it is a sort of technique to make flight easier. This explains the reason why? Thus, birds spend most of their lives in air.

  

How beautiful.  They are designed to such perfection. Peninsular Malaysia is really beautiful for nature lovers and birders. This makes bird watching particularly interesting. This is the  location shooting  for watching migratory shorebirds– Teluk Intan,  Malaysia

The Pixelpro Photographers in action. For me, This is the paradise for  the egrets.  You can see in this photograph the large dispersal flocks travelling along the way. I just hope the survival of these species will continue to multiply through the ages. They are very much an integral part of our ecosystem.

This is a very good image, the sharpness and the natural movement.

Egrets have bodies designed to be efficient in flight. Like many waders, these particular birds fly long distance during migration. Their head, body and wing shape help them propel themselves through the air. The long legs of egrets extend out beyond the end of the tail when the egret is in flight.

I love to see this flight of natural pose. A beautiful wading bird can brighten up the sky.

The bird island  is a paradise  home for the egrets. What a beautiful place to live in. This is the Perak river of Teluk Intan. Their preferred wintering grounds are mangroves where there are mudflats suited to their hunting style and providing preferred roosting sites.

 

Peral

This is the most common sight in this environment. Around 7:30 a.m. a number of egrets were seen circling above the paddy fields. You can see the egrets hanging with the cattle.

In this grassland, It seems that these egret will wait for the cattle to disturb the insects from the long grass, following closely as it glazes. They have a very good relationship.

What a beautiful day.

A friendly manner pose with the photographer.

It seems the cattle is a good listener. What do you think are they talking about?

What kind of relationship is this? This picture proves everything.

Is this an instinct? Or a tempting situation?   The cattle wants the egret to ride on his back, and the egret is about to ride.  You can find these two buddies in a dry grassy habitats like Paddy farm .This egrets are useful in reducing the numbers of flies which will annoy the cattle. The egret sit on his back, the cow gets a free cleaning and anti-insect service, some sort of spa service- the bird way cleansing. and the bird gets food and a free ride. Awesome! Just like humans too.  It’s a give and take situation.

 

These photograph will show you. This is something completely different. Fantastic pose! Egret nests in colonies and the nest are made of sticks on a tree.

It is about to rain as you can see dark clouds.

The egrets are rushing to respire before the rain will pour.

Home before dark Each one flies to their own specific tree, Cattle egrets roosting in trees so numerously that the trees look completely white, as shown here. I love this  wonderful scenery, a perfect place to respire.

  

A quiet sight! It’s now a goodnight time for the egrets. All set up to sleep. There’s no place like home. The darkness..the peaceful night makes the egrets sleep  and wakes up for a brighter tomorrow.

 

 CONSERVATION MESSAGE

None of us wants animal to suffer and in spite of many times people made mistakes. We, the generation of today never want to go through what they have encountered before. The youth of today never tends to shut off. We will continue to serve and save them.I want to make it clear, I don’t want to use animals to teach humans. I just want you to know that, It is the responsibility of humans to love and care for the animals.It’s my great wish for the young people who’ll read this record of my story should learn from it.

Sadly, some spectacular species have died out in former habitats because of human activities. Now, The sightings of the spectacular Egrets in Malaysia is a reminder to all Malaysians and to the rest of the world about the role of humans as stewards of the planet earth.  We should not abandon our role in environmental conservation and preservation so that animals like egrets do not completely disappear and follow the path of other animals that became extinct because human actions and intervention weren’t enough to save them.

I hope that in our own way, We help raise awareness for the protection of the wild birds. Me, and  Alex   wish that our children, and children of our children’s children will still behold the beauty of the egrets long after our generation has gone. Help protect and restore key habitats for threatened and declining migrant and endemic species. Be part of crucial campaigns to reduce threats to birds. Egrets were threatened by hunting for their feathers, more threatened by habitat destruction and pollution.

It is very clear that , this is a coverage of conservation, as far as the birds are concerned threatening their numbers, I am planning to make a trip to Malaysia this year and after seeing what Malaysia actually is from Pixel Pro Photography pics, I can’t just wait for months to come. Eventually, Alex came up with shots worth publishing. Each picture was mind-blowing and beautiful.I would like to thank  Pixel Pro Photography, Malaysia and to all club members for providing images and for the kind permission to reproduce all photos. Thank you very, very much.

Internet Addiction

By on July 7, 2011

Internet addiction is a common problem

Like teenagers his age, a family friend realized that he had a serious problem after he found himself playing online games and visiting Facebook for more than 8 hours a day.His parents allowed him to play for only an hour each day.Soon after,He realized that it wasn’t enough for him.He’s craving for more that he can’t even find time during weekends.When parents are asleep, he secretly play online games for the night till morning.For him,It was a pleasant feeling that he found himself hard to log–off. Now,His grades and health are suffering.It’s just beginning to be seen as a serious problem after flunking out from school. He decided himself to reform and convert himself into a new changes.He spent most of his time reading,playing tennis with friends and enjoying with family members.

What do you think? Do not think it is already too late for him! To some. They believed we cannot undo our sinful past. You might not believe this. Two years after, He’s now ready to a new kind of life, embarking a new beginning. He had given up what he used to do in the past. It was a dramatic changes He was able to graduate a degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering. He is currently working in a prestigious company. He also made himself busy during spare time and during weekends being with loved ones and family members. He  stayed away from bad gangs and from old vices. He only comes online for good but, with a very limited time.

Admittedly, His success cannot be attained without the help and support of his parents. All parents wants to pass their passion, intelligence, and skills to their offspring and make their children learn from their experience in order to succeed.

But I know, my friend however, aren’t the only people who can develop an internet addiction. It might also be me or you! This is common now especially to teenagers. People who spent time using online retail, social and gambling sites can all develop addictions.It is so intense that you never really have to leave the house, interact with friends and family members anymore. I’m just wondering how medical professionals react to this problems.Lately, I read it in the newspaper about the same case. I was shocked again to know that going online stimulates the brain and that a chemical produces a good feelings not only to activities online but also to non- internet users. For some,They have taken steps to address it and on the other hand, not a serious problem.And for me, It might become a threat! Time to log-off now.

A piece of advice for our young internet users.Avoid online gaming and limit your time online.Learn lessons from failures.

A Taste of Experience

By on May 30, 2011

The food that I like best is the food that makes me hungry, just to think of it is very simple. Let’s just say that I very seldom miss a meal! Recently, on a trip to Tagaytay, I was treated to a friendly lunch at an absolutely delightful restaurant. I ordered mushroom salad and my friends ordered mushroom burger too. It was incredible. I had never tasted anything like this before. I can describe the flavor as being somewhere between a prawns and a local beef steak. I ordered more to share with my friends. I just love the taste of the mushroom salad. They are called Shitake Mushroom.

Let me tell you, I did not leave the restaurant without learning their source. I discovered that they were being raised in a very limited supply. They raised their own in their backyard at the back of the restaurant. Thinking I could take few pounds home with me. The owner graciously invited me out to their facilities. I went there buy mushrooms but instead, received a lecture to educate me.

Now, with a virtually unlimited supply of my favorite foods like mushroom, I’ve become something of a good listener and soon, I will raise my own in my backyard. The reason why I like mushrooms is because of the unique flavor, rich in protein  and the low calorie content. All the nutrition stuff is great.

Honestly speaking, I go for less fat, less sodium foods. This is the reason why I go for selective dishes when I cook. I love Chinese dishes but the only problem is too oily, especially the stir- fried foods. It would be a sin for me if I eat it because for all we know that it adds more weight. I’m a health conscious. To see something oily on the table alone makes me fat. I hate these thoughts. really! I just love the tastes of it but it seems too cruel for what it may bring.

Internet: Is it Helping?

By on

Are you a compulsive internet user? Going online is easy but to log off is another story. In today’s technological age, It`s no longer a rare experience nowadays that most people find it hard to do so.

To be honest, I’m beginning to realize that I’m part of the group. This is a self- proclaimed but, I think it is not really a disorder, or not even officially disorder. I’m having a hard time separating myself from my computer especially when my work is unfinished. This doesn’t mean that I get angry and depressed when the power is off. The only thing matters is the sense of responsibility to finish the job.

The reason why? I loved to write and it is very convenient to do anything and everything on the Internet. Web has become a common place in my modern life, and I loved this kind of activities going on in my own website;  answering comments, twitter, forums, emailing, etc. It’s a part of my job, the line of work and responsibility to update everything. Without internet, there is something missing in my life.

I’ll just describe myself as a plain regular surfer but the time spent long hours was so stressful. aside from my motion injuries of my fingers and my dry tired eyes too. The webcams is adding more to the growing epidemic but I only use it if it really calls for it I do not visit social websites. I can control my own behavior without craving to go online regularly.

My answer to the question above is yes! In my own opinion, It helps a lot because it is a source of information but if you have no self-control will hooked and destroy you.  Some people may defend themselves and say” They will use it for researches”.  How about the effects next day? It will cost hours of sleep and rest, backpains, and neglecting time with family and friends. thus, surrendering your privacy to technology. This is the bad effects. It happens sometimes that seconds after I wake up, I’d want to go back to sleep again because I felt so tired and lazy to move around.

So far, I’m taking some steps to divide my online time with the real world to refrain from addicting forming. I don’t like the idea getting online to be addicted sitting infront of the computer for long hours. The good thing about real life is, You can feel the love and hugs with feelings of concern.  The real life is the thing that I have to face it because I can feel the excitement with personal interaction.It’s the reality of life. How about you? I just hope You can usually switch to offline activities without such angst.

INTERNET ADDICTION…

Welcome Change

By on

During my early teens, I was innocent and simple. I will only buy inexpensive clothes to local stores because I so was impressed with local brands. I even looked at people wearing designer clothing as extravagant and excessive. A celeb – styled clothes more than a few thousand pesos. The clothes, shoes and accessories amounting to half a months’ salary?  Is it just for show? Do you care?

The trend of today`s dressing is closer than we think. The gifted goods money spent has more to offer. I have figured it out and opened my mind to new discoveries and it’s easy to fall prey to certain things that life has to offer. With life comes experience,You’ll get more deeper as you grow older as life runs its courses.

Recently, I had stopped wearing my old clothes and relegated to our storage cabinet. I got tired of wearing them because it was already out of style. I have shifted to a more fashionable and comfortable ones.

My closet is now full of imported items that I will settle with it. Fashion of  today made me love and wear skinny jeans again. I started to love the looks of it. Not to mention disadvantages like; sweaty and tight-trapped legs. With foreign brands, you’ll see some awesome stuff  that you’ll fall in love with. Some jeans don’t go out of season and will last longer than expected. The good thing about it?  I don’t need to buy things all the time giving me choices for other stuffs. Thus, I can save money. Another to consider is the versatility and durability.

The idea of practicality during my early years was buying local brands because it is wise-cheaper compared to other brands.  but lately, I have noticed foreign brands are classy and comfortable to wear. A breathable fabric (especially some blouses and sneakers so my feet won’t get hurt even after an entire day walking. I have tried various items of clothes and shoes.  It’s practical choice.

It is difficult to say ‘’no’’, to the trends of today’s look. One of the fastest way to climb corporate ladder is to dress up well to the position you are aspiring for and especially if you  meet clients to win contracts. My idea here is just a personal idea of fusion modern- style and classic. This makes me feel confident to get noticed in a good way, better dressed-well according to trend of fashion and  looks  like my best self!

Opening of Classes/ School Days Again

By on

Children can’t wait for the opening of classes. They are anxious to see their old classmates and new teachers as well and proud  parents are happy to see them leave for school right? after, there would be a calm and free moment for the parents to rest and house would be more peaceful and organized after spending weeks of preparing for this.

As the school year starts, I’m very hopeful that this year 2011-2012  would be a better start. The good thing about it , We live in a place that happens to be near the school. Thanks God! The school is just 10 minutes drive away. I don’t experience any morning rush and stress but the only drawback living near the school is the heavy traffic congestion that happens around 6-7 in the morning and in the afternoon during dismissal time.

I always received text messages from friends about choosing a school for their child. I always tell them few factors to consider:’’ If you want to get a better education is to live in a convenient place near-by school” but as I know, not everyone can afford to live in an expensive neighborhood like; Valle Verde, Greenwoods,  Kapitolyo etc. One convenience of living few blocks away is I can save gas and energy too. Another thing to consider is the school facilities and educational approaches like; class size and classrooms, library, clean restrooms, modern technology to meet student special needs and demands, modern facilities. Although, it’s not a guarantee for higher achievement  but it helps.

If you are concerned parents? the most important is their safety of your kids. Exchanging views and opinions with friends can help you decide which one to follow. Our school have been hiking of portion fees( a percentage) but, added some services like: air-conditioned classrooms, special clubs, additional books, modern technologies,  etc. So don’t mind  prices of oil and commodities have rocketed together with tuition fees at the same time. Be private or public as long as you parents have done all you can in sending your kids to get a good education. Perhaps, it’s exciting to plan and think about their future if you are prepared and secured.
