Woofs Of My Life

Have you ever watched any of those movies or cartoons where the actress gaze into the handsome actor's eyes and she sees reflection of herself beaming in his eyes? Where at that point she'll somehow felt love struck, and felt as if she's the only thing the other person could see in his world, the only love? The part where you'll go "Awww..." and hug your boyfriend who's sitting next to you yawning at the boring pathetic lovey dovey scenes. The part that you'll start to imagine and dream of how you wish you could find a guy like that. Have you? I don't know about you, but as for me, I have been through and felt what was it like to be in that kind of situation. It felt amazing, so heart melting. It makes you feel as if you're the happiest person in the world. I thank my two babies Baby and Benji for making me feel this way.

People always describe dogs as a man's best friend. And I totally agree and support that theory. If you're not a dog lover you'll never understand the meaning of it. I started loving dogs and animals for as long as I could remember. I even wrote my ambition was to be a ZOO KEEPER back in primary school because I want to play with the tigers. (Yes, I know it's stupid.) And when i grew older, the ambition had also changed from a zoo keeper to a veterinarian. And it never came true because I ended up being in the art stream. I can still remember how I would cry when I see those dog catcher vans drove past (they really just drove past our car) because I knew there are lots of dogs inside the van that got captured. My mom doesn't allow us to have a pet dog because she doesn't want to clean all the shits and pees but I will always bring back abandon puppies or kittens and plead my mom to keep them. The poor puppies always ended up inside a big box outside our front door waiting to be taken away again the next day. There were once where my mom finally agreed to let us bring back a puppy. It was my uncle's dog. A terrier and his name was Ah Boy. I loved him to bits and although he was small, he was very protective towards me. Everytime my mom wants to hit me he'll growl and bark at her, ready to bite her any minute if she comes closer. Those moments are still vivid in my head. Poor mom ended up being bitten on the thigh one fine day when she forgot about Boy's existence. Hahaha! Until today, dogs still play a very important role in my heart.
I bought Baby three years ago. He was the first dog that I buy myself with my own money. I was only 20 back then and it costed me a bombshell. I went broke for almost a whole month after buying Baby but it's worth it. I fell in love with him the minute I saw him and I immediately wanted to bring him home with me. I didn't have much money that time but I insisted in buying him. Reservation could only last a week so within that week I did more jobs than usual to earn that amount of money. Luckily modelling could earn me some quick cash and I was able to buy him back. Before buying, I did alot of research and read alot of books about how to take care of a puppy and informations about his breed. There were a book that said Shih Tzu is a very manja dog, bringing him back the first time in your car is the most vital step of where you'll want him to sit in the car the next time. If you put him on your lap throughout the whole journey back home then he'll be sitting on your lap everytime he's in the car, even if he's a grown up. Putting him on your lap when he's still a puppy will be ok because he's still so small and light, but when he had grow up into an adult or especially he's an overweight fat dog, your leg will suffer. Trust me. Your leg will feel like breaking and there'll be scratches on your smooth beautiful leg if you're wearing shorts that day. I go through all that almost twice every week and sometimes he'll even want to take over the steering.
Despite all that nuisances, he's the one who brings happiness into my life and had brighten me up ever since. I love him to bits and I even set his barks as my message ringtone. Hehee! He lives the life of a king with me and I had never once beaten him no matter how naughty he is. Spoilt brad! He eats his foods and also mine, gets proper grooming every week, has alot of toys to play with, and sleeps in air conditioned room. Somtimes it is as if he understands what I said and feels what I feel. He knows whenever I'm unhappy and he'll know how to make me happy. He'll stick to me like a glue whenever I'm unhappy and he'll jump up to me and lick away my tears. Whenever I come home sad and angry, he's the one who'll always ease away my blues. He'll always jump onto my bed and lay next to me. There's the moment where we'll gaze into each other's eyes and I could see my own reflection gleaming in his eyes. We can have many people to care for us and love us but for them, we are their only owner and they are only devoted to us, love us only and we're his only family. They'll risk their life just to protect us because we are the only person to care for them. Put yourself in their shoes and how would you feel if one day you got abandon just like that? Their world would crumble and fall and there'd be no more meaning in their life. Worst still, they'll still carry the hope that you'l l return for them one day. Thus, I personally urge all dog owners out there to please not abandon their pet and those who're thinking to get a dog to think twice before buying them. Do you have the time for them, do you mind cleaning up their craps and will you be able to take care of them for the rest of their life, mentally, physically, and financially? If your answer is yes then you're fit to buy one but if your answer is no, please don't destroy their happiness and let someone else who's able to do so own them. Don't think of getting a dog just because it is the trend now and you think it's so "Paris Hilton" by bringing a dog out wherever you go. Think for them, not yourself.

60 Earth Hour

Everyone's been talking about global warming, pollutions, disasters, and sickness lately. All these are caused by us ourselves and exactly how many people will stand up and do their part to stop all these? Ordinary citizens who actually care will do their part, big or small, in helping to reduce pollution and global warming by recycling, use less plastic bags, or perhaps, plant more greens,. Where else bigger organization such as WWF did their part, by urging the world to switch off their lights for one hour. Yeapz, just by switching off the lights.
You might be thinking "How can switching off the lights helps in reducing global warming?" Don't get me wrong though. Switching off the lights can't helps in reducing global warming but it helps by sending out a strong message to the bigger people, government and strong politicians, that we actually care and it'll determine this people to take stern action against global warming.
And so, WWF came up with this superb idea called 60 Earth Hour and for the first time in history, people of all ages, young and old, rich and poor, from all over the world have the opportunity to take part in this programme , by just switching off their lights as a vote. Switching on their lights means leaving a vote for global warming and switching off leaves a vote for EARTH. Now, WWF is urging the world to vote EARTH and until it reaches a targeted amount of 1BILLION, they'll get a chance to represent the people of the world and voice out to the world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.
Let me give you a brief information about this whole earth hour thing. It first started at 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2million homes and business centers switched off their lights for an hour. In 2008, the amount had grown from 2.2million to 50million people switching off their lights. This included popular international landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Sydney Opera House, Rome's Colosseum, and Coca-Cola billboard in the bright-lite city Times Square, all stood in silent darkness. This proved that the message has spread wider and had grown into a global sustainability movement.
This year, Earth Hour has taken a brave step by targeting a goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights to vote. This is definitely more spectacular than any elections done in history. Just imagine, 1 billion people switching off their lights, all around the world. 1 billion people, all stay in the darkness for an hour, but yet, the feeling of connected and reunite as 1 to stand up against global warming, feels ever so good, proud, and yet, priceless. Doesn't matter if you speaks a different language, or you're of a different nationality, or from a different country, what matters is, you are all from the same planet called Earth.
I was surfing the official website when i came across an earth poem written by a 14 year old girl, Aina. I was touched by how a young girl was able to notice the problem that our earth is facing and how she had the heart to personally write a poem for this programme. In the message, she wrote that she wanted to help out but yet she can't do much coz she's just so young. But Aina, i think u had beautifully done your part by creating this poem:
Earth's life wont last that long,
When global warming drains them all,
It used to be a great clean place,
But now its just a place for haze.

Rubish and trash are everywhere,
Many people dont seem to care,
Seeing this as it breaks my heart,
Why wont people just pick it up.

Many lights and air polution,
Alot of different deadly solutions,
Causing problems like acid rain,
It just makes me go insane.

Walking home everyday from school,
If it rains, im soon in the blues,
Knowing that if i walked in the rain,
I would be sick all the way.

Catastrophies and disasters,
Slowly increasing in numbers,
Sooner or later i may not complain,
Malaysia might even have hurricanes.

Skin cancer,Asthma and not forgeting S.A.R.S,
Are now starting to spread,
These diseases are deadly,
And are killing more people towards the end.

Im crying out to everyone,
Help us in Earth Hour,
So please give us a hand to lend,
To stop the beginning of the end.

The young believer Aina
So, what are you guys waiting for?? Do your part and vote for earth. Sign up or read more about Earth Hour at stand up against global warming and let's all stand in darkness on the 28th March 2009 from 8.30pm-9.30pm. If you're afraid of the dark, find your family and friends, plan for a gathering. Go bbq, go to the beach and gaze at the stars, or just go up the hill and watch the normally bright and colourful KL stood in the darkness for the very first time.

M.A.C Hello Kitty Collection

M.A.C Cosmectics came out with a limited edition Hello Kitty collection on the 4th March 09'. In M.A.C Malaysia we only have the Mild and Wild Collection meanwhile in the rest of the countries, at least from what i know, they also have the Hello Kitty Kouture Collection...!! I'll do ANYTHING and i mean anything... to get my hands on the Kouture Collection.. why?? let me tell u why.. because it is all about BLINGS!! Hello Kitty compact powder coliberate with Swarovski = BLINGS!! and i am a super fan of blings.. the Hello Kitty Sheer Mystery Powder costs only $90 and i bet it's sold out all over the world now because i'm so sure that the japanese, koreans, and hk-ians are more chee sin than me about Hello Kitty or blings, hence, this is like a 2in1 unique 1 of a kind collection.
Although i've never been a big fan of Hello Kitty bu
t the M.A.C version of it attracted me. The black pink Hello Kitty doll that the model was holding in their ad was what captured my eyes. I never did imagine Hello Kitty can turn out to be so edgy+rock+punk or whatever u guys wanna describe it. White and soft pink with a flower ribbon on the head is not my type but the black pink kitty doll with a black n pink rimmed ribbon is DEFINATELY my type..!! Their colour theme for this collection are bold and sharp colours. I personally think their shocking pink colour is the main attraction for this collection. I lurve their nail lacquer colours ssoooo much!! Pink, grey and white... and their pink.. that pink nail colour that i've searched the whole of malaysia, and even australia for it.. and i still couldn't get my hands on it!!
I blame the make-up artist for wrongfully informing me the wrong date about this collection's launch. I went up to the counter and ask
ed that guy when will this collection be available somewhere end of february and he told me it'll be launch on the 7th. And so i came on the 7th thinking i'll be quick enough to grab some.. but i ended up going home with huge disappointment.. everything was freaking sold out!! except for the not so nice orange glitter eyeliner.. crap!! i questioned the same make-up artist and he was like "oh so sorry.. everything were basically sold out on the 1st 3days since it came out." and i was like "oh.. i tot u said it's out on the 7th?" and then he said "oh.. no.. it was out on the 4th.. didn't u received our sms?" yea i freaking received the sms but why i still bother reading it when u had already freaking told me it's gonna be launch on the 7th???!!! I will not tolerate this kind of service.. giving customers the wrong information and unintentionally made them not get their hands on what they've been preying on. And i am still seeking highs and lows and every chances to get the pink nail lacquer or nail polish or whatever it is, and the Hello Kitty plush doll, and the blingbling compact powder.
*Ahem* excuse my outrage.. anyways.. i did only some
