Equal Terms

When I was leaving office on Fri, I saw that Bouncy was inside Upsize’s room again.  Kid’s Meal commented, “What’s she doing inside?”.  I said, “Don’t you know?  Every year this time, she’ll always go inside Upsize’s room to ‘chit chat'”.

Sometimes, I think the issue nowadays is no longer about equality between the sexes.  The main problem women in modern society face is addressing inequality within the gender.  How many of you females who carry yourself with pride and dignity find that many a time, your position is compromised by a female who pretends to be vulnerable and fragile? 

Bonus/increment/promotions will be announced in 1 month’s time.  Let’s see what Bouncy has up her sleeves this time.  I wonder if she’s gunning for another promotion.  After all, when she didn’t get promoted the last round, she went into Upsize’s room to “chit chat” everyday till she got it.  (She managed to wrangle a promotion even AFTER the promotion list came out).

I suppose that’s life.  But to sink to that level to achieve something, is beyond me.

Bible Reflection of the Day – 29 March 2009

Romans 8:31-39 (New International Version)

31What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36As it is written:
   “For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[a] 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

My dad found Peanut lying like that this morning.  When I went downstairs, I saw Coffee standing near her, looking at her body.  He sniffed her a little but to no avail.  He looked kinda depressed and went to lie in the house when my dad and I put Peanut’s body inside a box for burial.

 

 29032009922 29032009923 29032009924

We buried Peanut in a park near my place.   Bye bye Peanut.  I think she’ll be happy ‘cos she loved to dig deep into the ground.  So she should be glad her resting place is in the earth too.

Peanut decides it’s better to stick with Coffee – he doesn’t eat as much as MC.

Pic 1: Coffee and Peanut on my lap.

Pic 2: Coffee chilling out with MC.  Coffee usually went to MC for protection when he got bullied by the rest ‘cos he’s the smallest in size.

Pic 3: The bunnies having a happy meal.

MC… burying himself in housework.  Look at his sian face at the end of it.  Hehe.

Peanut & Coffee.  They were a sweet couple too.

After Bazhang passed away, we bought Coffee, Peanut and Horlicks to accompany MC.  Horlicks is the spotted brown and white bunny, Peanut’s the all brown lionhead and Coffee’s the black lionhead.

 

DSC01287 DSC01285 DSC01286

They all got on pretty well though Horlicks could be a bit of a bully at times.  (She used to chase Peanut and Coffee around when she was upset at being locked up in the cage.  Only MC could put a stop to her ‘cos he was much bigger than them.

 

muah chee humping horlicks DSC01284

Unbeknownst to us at first, MC was also after Horlicks… and the union eventually gave us little Pinky.

 

grown up muah cheepeanut  peanut & muah chee

The first pic shows MC all grown up.  He was quite a tall rabbit.  Peanut was really cute when she was small… before her mane got really messy.  Heh… and that’s MC’s ass in the pic – in a cute mid-air hop.

MC and Horlicks’ “pak tor” days.

 

Horlicks & Peanut share food Horlicks Escape

Horlicks and Peanut have been pretty good friends since young… though Horlicks (and now Pinky) has a habit of “chope-ing” their food by putting their paws in the food tray.  The 2nd pic is a really curious Horlicks sticking her head out the top of the cage.  She’s really tall now… and can stick her head out w/o standing on anything.

 

MC & Peanut inside House 

Peanut and MC were good friends too.  Actually MC had the sweetest nature of all the bunnies.  He never showed his temper, never stomped his food, and always watched out for the others (to the extent of stealing my mom’s plants for them to eat). 

Tribute to Muah Chee & Peanut (Part 1)

Peanut died last night.  She was ok when I got home about 12am but my dad found her lying on her side motionless this morning.  Rigor mortis had set in and there were ants crawling around her body.  We buried her in the park.  Anyway, I mentioned in Mar last year that I was going to do a tribute for Muah Chee who died 1 year ago but I never got down to it.  So here’s my tribute to MC & Peanut.

 P1000243 P1000244 P1000245

MC was bought to accompany Bazhang after Tangyuan’s death.  He was the cutest little bunny ever.

 

 DSCN1075 DSCN1079 DSCN1080

He had a great weakness for food though.  Nothing could keep him from munching.

 

 DSCN1084 DSCN1088 DSCN1089

A very relaxed bunny.  His favourite activities were eating, and chilling out.

 

 IMG_3227 IMG_3229 IMG_3232

MC was good company for Bazhang.  Yup, that big grey bunny is Bazhang.

 

 DSCN1131DSCN1141 DSCN1140

His ears were incredibly long!

Did I mention his weakness for flowers?

MC loved to hop on top of things.  Check out the first pic!  MC was actually stealing BZ’s food while BZ was snoozing.

Oh, Behave

Woke up this morning from someone pressing the doorbell non-stop.  I opened my eyes and wondered if it could be a delivery from Singpost… but I thought at first, "Nah.  They can’t be so fast".  Thankfully the good postman from Singpost tooted his horn.  That got me up.  And…

 

P1020264

Vpost/Singpost delivered my sunglasses today!  The Vpost website sucks… not user friendly at all.  But I guess you can rely on Singpost to do a good job in delivery.  I made payment (after much struggle with the website) 2 days ago and my package arrived today!  Very fast!

 

P1020266

Ordered them from FramesDirect and saved about SGD130 off the retail price in Singapore! 

 

P1020268 

FramesDirect also offers a 30-day refund/exchange policy.  I did a search online before using them and it seems like they’re the one of the biggest (if not the biggest) frames & spectacles online store in the US.

This is the hard casing for the sunnies.  A little bulky though… think I’ll leave it in the car.

 

P1020272

Finally, my sunnies!  Oakley’s Behave Asian Fit.  The lenses are Oakley’s black gradient lens that allow 35% of light through.  I think it’s just perfect.  Love it!!
