Bad News Everywhere

my friend CY always reads the papers and the other day he asked if we read about a piece of news and when we said, "no." he went, "you guys haven't been reading the papers!!!" haha

yeah, i don't normally like to read the papers, especially when i'm on leave... when i'm in the office, i'd flip through the papers but when i'm on leave, i won't purposely go and buy papers... i also don't subscribe to ST interactive... one of the reasons why i don't like reading the news is because i feel that today's news is tomorrow's history and i've never liked history... another reason is because the news we read are v often bad news... economy not doing well la, so and so killed so and so la... and not to mention, i feel singapore press is rather biased... hm...

just yesterday, chris bought TNP (chris likes reading TNP because of the soccer section), there was a piece of news about the capture of a psychotic serial rapist-killer who attacked 86 women... one of whom was stabbed in front of her son 49 times. another was dismembered and her 4 year old daughter also sexually assaulted and smothered dead. her husband came home from work and the scene that greet him was too shocking... the forensic department lady who took pictures of the scene was so badly affected she could not work anymore... so tragic... i read already hair also stand.

then last night's news on TV reported that more pets are being abandoned because of the recession... -.- the way i see it in orchard, in the restaurants etc... GOT RECESSION MEH????!!!!! @#%$ chris n i feel v sad... i mean, PETS ARE FAMILY... how can you say, got recession so don't want pets anymore one????!!!! there're ways to cope... you can cut down on luxury items like grooming, treats etc. instead of feeding your dog beef, maybe feed chicken lor. instead of feeding cat salmon, feed kunning la. i'm sure that's better than abandoning your pets... do you say, "o got recession, let's send the kids to orphanage la." no wat! *haiz* upset...

and peoples, christmas coming, pls hor, don't go and buy cute cute pets to give away as presents hor. it's not right. remember, young animals always look v cute. when they're old and no longer cute, will u still love them? and i hate it when people start buying bunnies during easter... then after that abandon them... makes my blood boil... these stupid idiotic tweets... sorry for my coarse language... i'm upset. these pet shops should exercise more caution when selling but of cos, since making profit is their priority, they don't give a shit about the poor animals one...

lemme digress a bit... that time chris n i were at a petshop buying food for our bunnies when we overheard a man choosing a cage for his rabbit. the shopowner recommended a large cage but he pointed to a PET CARRIER BOX and asked "can use that?" the shopowner said, "no no cannot. that's a carrier box!" and the man said, "the rabbit so small need such a big cage meh?" wa biang, if chris didn't stop me, i would have given the guy a piece of my mind. animals like humans need space. you wouldn't want to live in a room the size of a single bed right???? so pls la uncle, use your backside to think you will know you need a big cage for the bunny. in fact, bunnies should not be kept in a cage all the time because they have v soft paws (unlike cats and dogs who have padded paws) so the wire may cause sore hocks (painful paw condition for rabbits) if they have been subjecting their paws to pressure for a long period of time... pek cek pek cek...

so see la, read news, watch news, see only bad news make me so pek cek... don't read don't see better. in any case, if there's anything news-worthy, CY will surely blog about it or share during bible study one. LOL
