Crimes Against The Gays

Bullying during the teen years...
14 years old Jamey Rodemeyer took his own life this week after he become a target of bullying.

He regularly posted about being bullied at school and how people would launch gay insults at him.

But what was worse for Jamey, was that when he wrote of his pain and frustrations and cried for help in his blog postings, students at his school started to bully him online.

About 12 months ago on his Formspring account - which permits anonymous posts - other students started making gay references towards him.

Another read: 'I wouldn't care if you died. No one would. So just do it :) It would make everyone WAY more happier!'

The 14-year-old was a big fan of Lady Gaga and sent her a message on Twitter saying 'Bye mother monster, thank you for all you have done, paws up forever,' before he killed himself.

It's very obvious that this world practised a double standard way of rules. Kids with different sexual orientation are being bullied and taunted at school where the teachers are doing nothing about it. I don't think that they are ignorant about it, maybe they did encouraged it in the first place by turning a blind eye to the matter.

What about boys and girls that had unprotected sex and gave births when they are underage? I never really heard about them being bullied and taunted for that. Did their parents ever disown them for that? What will they do to earn a living? Applying for some benefits from the government? Making the taxpayers pay for their mistake? What about the baby? Who's going to provide for and to raise him/her up? The baby could grow up without a proper education and become some criminal and cause havoc to others.

I never heard of homosexuals got pregnant and claiming government benefits for their mistakes. But their schoolmates, teachers, neighbors, so called friends and even family disowned them for coming out of the closet. These people are struggling with their own sexuality and took a lot of courage to become who they really are. They didn't mean to cause any disorders to those around them unlike those underage pregnant dumb kids. And yet everyone is trying to give them a hard time.

It's not the first time that some gay teens committed suicide because of those bloody bullies at school. The society must be responsible about these incidents. Parents should teach their children how to respect others. Teachers should be more observant of their students. The authorities should make bullying a crime and toss those bullies into juvenile schools.

Discrimination in later life...
A lesbian actress who starred in "The L-Word" said she kissed a girl — and got escorted off of a Southwest Airlines flight on Monday for doing it.

Leisha Hailey took to Twitter to call for a boycott of the carrier after a flight attendant told them other passengers had complained after witnessing the affection.

Her first tweet said: "I have been discriminated against." She later added, "Since when is showing affection to someone you love illegal?"

Southwest Airlines Co. responded on its website that Hailey was approached "based solely on behavior and not gender." The airline's four-sentence response said passengers were characterizing the behavior as excessive.
Men and women can kiss others in public. They can marry the one they love. They can start a family and live happily ever after.

Not for the gay couples though.They can't come out with their sexual orientation. They will lose the chance to advance in their jobs. People will taunt them for being gays. They can't kiss or hold hands with their love ones. The airline will kick them out of their flight. Their marriages are not recognized in some parts of the world or in their religion's eyes. They'll be discriminated in whatever they do and whenever they go.

When these very same straight people with the holier-than-thou attitudes starting to open their damn mouths,they should look at themselves first. Men having affairs outside their marriage, infected with diseases and passed them to their wives at home. Some hippies revolution in the 60's that abused drugs, anti work attitude and so on. Straight criminals that commit heinous crimes. Straight people that schemed and manipulated others to get on top of the ladder. Straight people who wages war on others. Straight people that bullies the gays for being themselves. Is being gay any worse than this? I don't think so.

These are the S.O.B that enjoy the pleasure of inflicting pain in others. Making life difficult for others. Discriminating others while they themselves had done lots of unspeakable sins. It will make their day when they see others feeling miserable.

If this is not what we called double standard,then what are the more appropriate word that can describe this situation?

A Dog's Prayer

Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of mine.

Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I lick your hand between blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me learn.

Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footsteps fall upon my waiting ear.

Please take me inside when it is cold and wet, for I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.

Keep my pan filled with water, for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.

Feed me clean food that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side and stand ready, willing, and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.

And my friend, when I am very old and no longer able to enjoy good health, hearing and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going. I shall leave this Earth knowing with the last breath I draw, that my fate was always safest in your hands... I will always be your BEST FRIEND.

Sleeping together

Now I lay me down to sleep,
The bed is soft and deep.
I sleep right in the center groove
My human being can hardly move!

I've trapped her legs, she's tucked in tight
And here is where I pass the night
No one disturbs me or dares intrude
Till morning comes and "I want food!"

I sneak up slowly to begin
Looking at my human sound asleep
And I licked her face
She wakes up quickly.

I'm a dog, don't you see?
For the morning's here
and it's time to play
I always seem to get my way.

So thank you Lord for giving me
This human person that I see.
The one who hugs and holds me tight
And shares her bed with me at night!

The Ten Commandments From A Pet Point Of View

1. My life is likely to last ten to fifteen years. Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that before you buy me.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me, don't be impatient, short-tempered, or irritable.

3. Place your trust in me and I will always trust you back. Respect is earned not given as an inalieable right.

4. Don't be angry at me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your entertainment and your friends. I have only you.

5. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice and your tone, "you only have to look at my tail".

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I'll never forget it and if it's cruel it may affect me forever.

7. Please don't hit me. I can't hit back, but I can bite and scratch and I really don't ever want to do that.

8. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate or lazy, ask your self if something might be bothering me. perhaps I'm not getting the right food, or I've been out in the sun too long, or my heart is getting old and weak. I may be just dog tired.

9. Take care of me when I get old; you, too, will grow old and may also need love, care, comfort, and attention..

10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch it, or, "Let it happen in my absence."

Everything is easier for me if you are there. Remember, irrespective of what you do I will always love you.

Dogs in heaven

An old man and his dog were walking down this dirt road with fences on both sides, they came to a gate in the fence and looked in, it was nice grassy, woody areas, just what a 'huntin' dog and man would like, but, it had a sign saying 'no trespassing' so they walked on. They came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there. "Welcome to Heaven" he said. The old man was happy and started in with his dog following him. The gatekeeper stopped him. "Dogs aren't allowed, I'm sorry but he can't come with you."

"What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs? If he can't come in, then I will stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't desert him now."

"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his area, he'll promise you anything, but the dog can't go there either. If you won't leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on this road."

So the old man and dog went on. They came to a rundown fence with a gap in it, no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside. "S'cuse me Sir, my dog and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?"

"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there. Make yourselves comfortable"

"You're sure my dog can come in? The man down the road said dogs weren't allowed anywhere."

"Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?"

"No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven, he said the dog couldn't come in.
We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy here can't come too, and that's final."

The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."

"You mean this is Heaven? Dogs ARE allowed? How come that fellow down the road said they weren't?"

"That was the Devil and he gets all the people who are willing to give up a life long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out their mistake, but then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle people stay there. GOD wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, HE created them to be man's companions in life, why would he separate them in death?"

No More Sorrow by Linkin Park

Are you lost in your lies?
Do you tell yourself I don't realize
Your crusade's a disguise?
Replaced freedom with fear
You trade money for lives
I'm aware of what you've done

No, no more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced

I see pain, I see need
I see liars and fiends
Abuse power with greed
I had hope, I believed
But I'm beginning to think that I've been deceived
You will pay for what you've done!

No, no more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced!

Thieves and hypocrites!
Thieves and hypocrites!
Thieves and hypocrites!

No, no more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced

No more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced

Your time has come to be replaced
Your time has come to be erased!.

Singapore Fried Prawn Noodle

I heard a lot of bad review about this dish but I refused to make any judgement until I give it a try myself.

I actually think this dish is quite good. It's a totally different dish from the Hokkien Noodle. At least you can clearly see what you are eating because it isn't loaded with black sauce (I hated it when I was in my teens as I thought it will give me dark scars during my horrible acne loaded phase).

Just had to pretend that I don't see them scopping the noodles from the wok using a small pail like the one we used to flush the toilet....

True Blue? Won't Go Back Ever

The man standing at the reception threw us some dirty look as if we can't afford their food when we stepped into True Blue. Very bad impression.

Were seated by a receptionist and this man came over with a 360 degree change. He couldn't find anything more appropriate to say that awkward compliment of my nephew plain looking Tshirt. I think he's the manager or partner or whatever.

Weird tasting longan drinks..

Ngoh Heang...just plain ordinary ngoh heang.

Watery Ayam Ponteh...

Pucuk Ubi and Pineapple Prawn.

Horrible Keluak Otak Otak. I had to wash the prawn with Pineapple Prawn's gravy to get rid of the foul taste of the buah keluak. Don't mean to offend anyone here but I never tasted Buah Keluak that tasted like this.

Crayfish, I had no idea how to describe this.

Desserts, not really a sweet ending. The Onde-Onde served in a pair and the Tapioca thing in a trio. I think most of the places serve them in trio not a pair like this place.WTF?!

The verdict: Bad service, watery gravy, weird texture and foul smelling food. Nothing to shout about here. Shouldn't have rushed here from Sentosa. Might as well remain there to have KFC.

Cuteness Overload Part 2

Boo is sure a canine with good taste. He sleeps with Muse's song as lullaby. Way to go!

The Life Of The World's Cutest Dog

Boo has almost 2 million fans on Facebook and a book deal which is sure a bestseller. This is one damn famous pomeranian . He will be one rich and famous canine without even having to try too hard. All he has to do is to pose and look cute for the camera.
Sleeping cutie. PeekaBOO!

One fashionable canine. He has a huge wardrobe of different cute outfit and accessories.

Aww....he's so cute. I wanna hug him..

Little Boo promoting the Operation Smile with his cute smile.

Smart little Boo.
Who says tangled fur is bad? Boo's adorable look was a happy accident where his fur was so tangled that there's nothing can be done except to shave them off. This give him a very unique look as he looks more like a little bear than a pomeranian.

Boo is fan of the baseball club, The Cubs.
Cute boy..

Going to get my hands on his book after this.

Fun At Asia's Favourite Playground

Part go-cart, part toboggan...we've been wanting to try it out since we arrived. There's so many things to do and we had so little time. It rained a lot too.

In line for the luge.

Having full control of the Luge, we navigated down 688 metre of the Dragon Trail cruising slowly and speeding up as we like.

After the Luge, we boarded the Skyride. We had to hop on as it never really stop. Miscalculated and my butt landed right on top of a strip of wood. Right at my butt crack. OH MY LORD! It was so painful and the pain dragged for weeks. I thought I might have hurt my spine.

Should be enjoying the nice view below, but my butt pained so much and I was afraid of the height. Afraid of the cable gave way and dropped us. I know I was being neurotic but I couldn't help it. Pain and worries overwhelmed the beautiful scenery below us.

Off to ride the Segway afterwards....
Gliding effortlessly around on the eco friendly Segway. You just have to lean forward to move forward and stand up straight to stop.

At first, I thought it would very hard to master this device because I don't have the faith in myself. Jacky Chan made looked so simple but you know all his stunts on the big screen looked damn simple too.

The Temptation Of The High Society

High society record label was founded by That CD Shop since 2006 and is deemed as the jewel of the recording industry as it is the only record company in the world that is being endorsed by all the four major recording labels Sony Bmg, Universal music, Warner and EMI. It is also the only record company in the world that is able to have all the four major labels being involved in a single project.Not only they serve great music but great desserts too.

The cozy ambience of this place is very inviting.This modern restaurant that exudes an old world charm, complete with delectable menu and distinguished services and mad out of this world desserts.

Sinfully beautiful cupcakes, tempting rich chocolate cakes, mad luring tiramisus...this is crazy!

It took me a super human strength to be able to resist taking home every single different piece of them. If only fatness is only a myth, I would gladly eat all of them without a single trace of guilt in my system.
Some consolation prizes...

The verdict? I want to move to Singapore and stay next to High Society so that I could have the wonderful desserts anytime.

Time to seriously lose a lot of weight in order to put them back on again for my next visit. This time, I'm going to try at least 20 variety of them.

A Chance To Get Close To The Wild Animals

It was a bit drizzling but that didn't deter us from visiting the Night Safari. Bought a lot of mosquitoes repellent patches as a preparation.

Can't wait to get inside the tram. A very rare chance for getting close to the wild animals.

The tram took us from the Himalayan foothills to wild Equitorial Africa with live commentary. Wild animals such as tigers were separated by a huge drain while the tamer animals such as the tapirs are allowed to roamed freely. Saw them eating just next to the tram. I would be able to touch them if I reach out my hands.

Certain areas were so dark that sometimes I wondered if I was looking at some tree log or wild animals. At the back of my mind,images of some wild animals escape and lunges at us in the tram and eat us alive playing until a loud growl from a tiger nearby interupted my crazy imagination. That sounded so near...

Recent counts showed there are 600–800 Malayan tigers in the wild, making it the most common tiger subspecies other than the Bengal and perhaps also the Indochinese tigers. It is nevertheless an endangered subspecies.

Separated just by a piece of glass. I never been so near a tiger before. Too bad it's sound asleep and ignored us.

One of the few visible picture that I managed to captured. They don't allow flash camera in case it disturb the animals.

Pink Flamingos. They are so beautiful.
Never really pay attention to the pig species exist out there until now. Babirusa, Red River Hog and so much more. I can only remember the main character of the Babe movie. Pigs are very cute, how I wish that I could keep them as pets. I can give up having ham and bacon and eat Chick Kut Teh instead.

After the tram ride over, we walked around the many trails that they have. Tried to sneak a few pictures with the flash on and unfortunately I was caught red handed. Thank God they didn't kick me out.

We arrived at this cave where all of a sudden some bats flew on top of us. Scared the living sh*t out of me.

At the Z-Bar sitting on the zebra...LOL

See, it won't bite...

Hey! Let me go!
