Maybe, Animals Are More ‘Human’

Of all the entries I’ve been blogging, I’m rather disturbed this time as I put my thoughts into words. Disturbed and losing faith in the human race.  Our nation is shocked and wrapped in grief, as we mourn the MH17 tragedy. There’s no better reminder for us that we are indeed our own enemies. At the time of writing, it is still unclear who actually shot down the ill-fated MAS aircraft. But someone undoubtedly shot it down as it travelled over the troubled Donetsk region in Ukraine. Someone shot down an aircraft carrying mothers, fathers, sons and daughters who have absolutely nothing to do with the conflict between two warring parties. 309 souls including two pet dogs and nine live birds were inhumanely killed for no reason.

One week before this whole catastrophe happened, I watched the newly released Planet of The Apes: Dawn of The Apes. It was arguably one of the best animal-centric movies ever. It is interwoven with tons of messages about the world we’re living in. Animal lovers will surely find this movie meaningful. The most compelling moment in the film is when.., the lead character Caesar, an ape who is genetically advanced and could speak basic English, tells his rival ape Koba during an intense fight, that an ape should not, and will not kill another ape.  Caesar strongly believed that, Apes should not do what humans do. Caesar’s righteousness to protect his kind is something exemplary. 

We all could take a leaf out of any animal’s book. It is indeed unerring. It struck me as I got myself engrossed into the narration. Animals don’t kill their own kind with malice, grudge and hatred.  The movie also delves into how humans have brought about extinction to their own kind, by conducting tests on animals, which then backfired. A strain of virus called simian flu wiped out large parts of human population due to human error. On top of that, the use of firearms by humans is depicted as the downfall of mankind, despite its purpose to supposedly defend them. I won’t reveal the entire narration of this brilliant film as it will be a spoiler. But the subliminal messages in this film were so subtle, yet so telling. It was poignantly illustrated that animals are more worthy to have ownership of this beautiful earth, than us humans. As the lessons from the film were still echoing in my head, on the evening of July 17, MH17 was heinously destroyed by armed ‘terrorists’. At that point, it became more profound.
The apes were right after all. Humans kill humans!

CDM25 Peugeot

Now you can't simply kiss anything. Be it cars, puppies or kittens!

Well by now, you should know about this road bullying controversy between the infamous Kiki Kamaruddin and Uncle Sim. If you don't know you can watch the video here: Click Link. Correspondingly, I have a knack for correcting pronunciations. Trust me, it's an OCD of sorts for people in the industry I'm working in. Initially, I used to mispronounce a lot of words too. Wait..I still do.Lol. So basically it's about learning and sharing, and there's absolutely nothing condescending about it.

After this entire issue exploded, everyone's been mispronouncing the car brand. I've never heard so many different pronunciations for Peugeot in my life. Pijot, Pihot, Piujiut, Pigeort, Pujat, Pewgiat, Pewyo............. Silap silap Poyo pun ada nanti.

The correct pronunciation for the brand is furry easy, because it's a cat-friendly sound. And that's how I remember it. Peugeot is pronounced as Purr-Jho. Like Per-Jho. Yup, that purr should make it easy for Fursians to remember it. And bear in mind, the R sound in Purr or Pher is very subtle. Jangan sampai PurrrrRRRRR sangat! Itu dah Captain Lebih.

Ok, that's all for this week's class! If you want to learn more, pay RM2,000. Kthankxbai! :D

World Cup Fever

The moral of the story is, choose your battles wisely!  LOL

Hope you're enjoying the football season. In the midst of all that footie indulgence, let's not divide our attention when it comes to the furkids. Don't miss those little walking and talking with them. Don't skip all that cleaning and grooming. Most importantly, don't forget their meals. Have a great World Cup, fursians!
