Job Salary Comparison: Philippines vs the World (graphic designers, web developers etc)

This is just disturbing. Here’s a comparison of some high paying job salaries from around the world. Jobs like graphic designers, web developers, medical transcriptionists and more. As you can see, these high paying jobs aren’t so high paying in the Philippines…

We really need to do something about this if we want our economy to rise.

New DC Comics Reboot: 52 #1 Issues for Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Justice League and more

It feels kinda weird starting over. I mean, that feeling of insecurity, of change, of uncertainty and of something completely new. Of course, after the unfamiliar start, most of the time you’ll find out that all those strange new feelings were nothing to really be afraid of.

On the other hand, to just move forward and drop that past decades of stories, insights, chemistry and to just act like it never even happened, that might be a whole different ballgame.

Either way, whether you’re all for this big change or totally against it, it’s happening and it is happening now!

DC comics has started to roll out their brand new issues. They are reinventing the DC wheel! DC Comics is coming out with 52 new #1 issues for their comic books. Familiar and age old stories like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern and so many more are getting a brand new slate.

There will also be new characters, new villains, new origins and more, but many will also be very familiar in a nostalgic way.

DC Comics decided to try and invite new readers by starting over. It’s a reasonable idea as many of the young ones out there, and even the oldies who still want to get into it, may be overwhelmed at the sight or knowledge of a 500 book backlog they would have to read to understand why exactly Superman and the Black Lantern Corps were in their little pillow fight.

On the other hand, while trying to get new readers, the fear is that DC comics may anger and alienate the loyal fans and lifelong readers who know these characters like the back of their hands.

Catwoman-New-DC-rebot-change-new-costume-cat-woman new-supergirl-super-girl-reboot-dc-comics-justice-league

Either way, the bottom line is that the comic book industry, like the publishing industry, needs a boost.  Sales have been dwindling for comic books especially since the digital ebooks have been released on the same day as the hardcopy comic book now.

This DC Universe reboot may just be the breath of fresh air that the comic book world needs. Besides, it’ll give a more modern and current look at many of our favorite heroes who might still be hanging on to character flaws and personalities from the 60’s.

One bright spot is that the Justice League #1 issue already has a preorder booking of over 200,000 issues!

Anyway, here’s the unofficial comic book and character I’m especially excited about! The New and improved Superman Reboot!

Superman-reboot-dc-comics-new-specialman-special-man

Ok, just kidding about that one. But seriously, I’m pretty excited for this one. Honestly, I haven’t bought a comic book in over 10 years…. but I actually have the urge to go out and get some of these titles. If not for the reading pleasure, but also for the collector in me. I mean, come 2034, they’ll be asking you: “Where were you when DC rebooted?” When you tell the youngsters then that you were too lazy to go out and get the collectors item #1 issue of Specialman… I mean Superman, they are going to give you a death stare like no other!

Here’s to a new chapter in DC’s and our lives. It’s time to move forward. Change is good. Let’s start over and make today the fresh start to the rest of our lives!

10 Things to Learn from Japan

I’m not sure who wrote this piece. It seems to be a chain email circulating as I’ve received it a few times already. But I just thought that it had a very powerful message.

We don’t need to be of a certain religion to be kind, loving and peaceful.

 

10 Things to Learn from Japan

 

 

10 things to learn from Japan –


1. THE CALM Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

2.  THE DIGNITY – Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.

3.  THE ABILITY _ The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

4.  THE GRACE People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

5.  THE ORDER No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.

6.  THE SACRIFICE  – Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?

7.  THE TENDERNESSRestaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.

8. THE TRAINING – The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.


9.  THE MEDIA They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage.

10. THE CONSCIENCE – When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly 

and they are not Christians…..

With every good wish

 

 

 

Christmas is Overrated: Holiday Thoughts from a Scrooged Grinch

This was a post by a very good friend of mine a few years back. Just thought it was hella funny and really well written. So I wanted to share it with you guys in case you want to check it out.

***Warning, do not read if you have heart problems, are pregnant or are overly sensitive… =P

Christmas is a religious holiday. I have no desire to celebrate anything remotely related to support it. Growing up, I was never taught to believe in any fairytale or imaginative figures. Thus the thought of an overweight old man dressed in red flannel, shouts derogatory terms across the sky about women and distributes toys to undeserving little brats does not arouse me in any shape or form.

Nevertheless, being the accommodating person that I am, I concede and cooperate with the traditions instead of telling my true feelings to people’s faces. That’s the essence of being civil. If someone has the nerve to tell me that Chinese New Year is a meaningless holiday that promotes nothing but commercialism and compulsive spending, I will slap that bitch so hard there will be no tomorrow.

The funny thing is, I just spent the evening watching two things I can’t stand the most: fireworks and Christmas decorations.

The only description I got from my friend Ricky about this event was “there will be these sail boats with cool lights at Shelter Island.” I thought it would be a relaxing way to wrap up my Sunday, which I spent compulsively rearranging living room furniture.

“Yes!! We arrived just in time for the fireworks” was the first thing that came out of his mouth when we pulled up.

Fireworks? I hate fireworks. It is the ultimate ancient Chinese invention that is used for useless ephemeral human enjoyment at the expense of our dying planet. The only time one is ever justified to use fireworks is when you’re surrounded by hungry mountain lions while wearing underwear made out of beef jerky, and you cannot possibly attract any help by screaming “fire!”

The best part about the night was that the “lights on the sail boats” were actually “illuminated Christmas decorations”. Jingles were blasted so loudly they still resonate in my ears…after 7 hours.

Every boat pretty much looked the same. Why couldn’t people just be a little more creative. If I had a boat there I would have decorated it with the devil riding with Santa, or a giant hiny.

Ricky did not notice how painful it was for me to watch. I squirmed so much on my riverbank rock I was pretty sure I drilled a hole into it.

Ahh…I’m such a good friend…

Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling – Our Education System Needs Fixing!

I was completely blown away by this video! This high school valedictorian shares the exact same sentiments I do about education systems that are designed simply to have students compromise their individualities and just blend in. Conforming is the name of our education system!

I was born in El Paso, Texas USA, but spent most of my younger years growing up in the Philippines. It was here that I was subjected to some of the most “creativity-killing” schools that tried their best to make their students just another plain fish in the pond.

The greatest leaders in this world always question the way things are. They don’t just do things because they were told to do it that way. Leaders ask why things are being done a certain way, then they find a way to do it easier, faster and better.  Leaders understand the rules, then they break the rules!

I went to three secondary (elementary) schools in the Philippines because I often got kicked out of my schools from either not wanting to memorize 2,000 Chinese vocabulary words (not exaggerating) or because it never really interested me and thus I skipped class way too often. Even when I was in class I would always fall asleep or be told by the teacher that I was not “a good student” (meaning a good follower or good servant) and thus would get in trouble one way or another.  The schools I went to here, Saint Jude Catholic School, San Lorenzo Ruiz Academy and Saint Peter Apostolic School and I don’t recommend sending your kids here EVER!

anti-conformity-conform

Anyway, back to the video. The valedictorian talks about not being happy or confident with her career path even though she’s the valedictorian. She says that yes, she may have gotten the best grades, but that only means that she was the best at doing what she was told. She says that while she was busy taking notes in class, others were doodling their hours away and these doodlers will probably one day be great artists. While our valedictorian was out doing homework, others were keeping busy with their hobbies and favorite activities and these people may too become great at these extracurricular engagements. So now, even though she was a valedictorian, she feels lost.

“If you’ve got your eye on the goal, that means you only have one eye on the path.”

I know how most old school thinkers believe that a piece of paper may be the “safest” way to have a normal salary in this world. But if you haven’t realized, there is an army of high school and college drop outs who knew what they wanted and went for it! (i.e. Bill Gates) No amount of education will compare to a strong drive and persistence to succeed. It’s the risk takers that become the millionaires, leaders and change-makers of tomorrow.

Anyway, I wouldn’t dare condemn my worst enemy to a fate of being normal. My biggest fear in my life is that I’ll one day look back and realize that I had a mediocre life.

DON’T BLEND IN – STAND OUT!

DON’T CONFORM – BE YOURSELF!

Most of all,

NEVER LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO HOW OTHERS THINK YOU SHOULD!

Be-yourself-Stand-out

Just my two cents…

Inception Ending is a Work of Art

WARNING WARNING!!!! SPOILERS ALERT

——————

In the Sistine Chapel, there’s an image painted by Michelangelo of god who’s about to give the gift of life to man. In this epic work of art, the most breathtaking part of it all is that there are a few inches of separation between the hand of god and that of man / Adam. That little space of eternity between their fingers touching makes the entire painting the work of art that it is because of how much emotion is packed into that little bit of ambiguity.

Hands_of_God_and_Adam

That’s sort of how I felt with the ending of the new box office hit, Inception.

The Inception ending is really ambiguous and many movie goers were complaining about director Christopher Nolan (of the Dark Knight) saying that he didn’t know how to end his own movie.

On the contrary, I believe he knew exactly what he was doing.

In the movie Inception, we’re lost with the ending and have no clue whether or not Leonardo DiCaprio’s character indeed made it out of the dream world and whether or not he is back in the real world. There’s a second or so that separates the truth to this story.

On the other hand, it’s that split second that really defines life as it is. I mean, aren’t we walking around everyday not really really knowing what’s going to happen next. Aren’t we all just a bit lost in our dreams as well? Perhaps I can even go as far to say that the people who do blend their dreams with the real world are the ones who get to really synergize both world and end up creating a reality that reaches their dreams?

Ok, that might have been too confusing.

In short… I liked the Inception ending.

Ready, Set, Travel: Cebu Pacific’s Backpacker Challenge Adventure Contest

philippines

Ready, set, travel: Cebu Pacific’s backpacker adventure contest

With just P12,000, a backpack and a chunk of resourcefulness, just how far can a traveler go in the Philippines? To answer the question, Cebu Pacific (CEB), the country’s largest airline, will pit local travel experts against each other in a five-day, four-city journey across the Philippines. Dubbed the Cebu Pacific Backpacker Challenge, the competition also aims to show that a fun exploration of the beautiful Philippine islands can be done without going over one’s allotted budget.

The contest will test the participants’ sense of adventure as they visit various pre-selected locales—Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Davao and Iloilo. Their journey will begin and end in Manila for the awarding of the winning team.

There will be five teams of two travel experts each. They will form Team Sanuk, Team ROX, Team Columbia, Team High Sierra and Team Eagle Creek, named after participating Primer Group brands synonymous with fun, adventure and travel. These travel experts will go from place to place enjoying as many activities and having as many experiences as their budgets will allow. They can savor local cuisine, visit tourist attractions, try local sports and enjoy whatever else the locale offers.

Each team’s budget also covers accommodation, transportation and meal expenses, which means that making such arrangements with family or friends in the chosen areas is not allowed.

To document their experiences during the trip, the contestants will also use Canon DSLR and Powershot and Ixus cameras with which they will shoot video diaries. They will also be required to report their actual expenses.

At the end of the challenge, the team with the most activities while spending the least will be declared winner. As their prize, each member of the winning team will receive two round-trip CEB tickets to Kota Kinabalu (exclusive of Philippine Travel Tax), and 3N/4D hotel accommodations and transfers in Kota Kinabalu courtesy of the Sabah Tourism Board.

Canon Philippines will also give away photography books and four (4) A490 Canon cameras to the two winning teams with the best DSLR and Point and Shoot photos, covering the theme, “You only live one life. Seize it with Canon.”

“This competition is all about showing Pinoy travelers that, yes, a little amount of money, creativity and planning can go a long way,” shares Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific vice president for marketing and distribution. “By making the right travel choices, one can enjoy rich experiences and make the most out of any trip, especially here in the Philippines.”

Cebu Pacific has the most extensive network in the Philippines as it flies to 33 domestic destinations in 51 domestic routes. For more information, call (02) 7020-888 or (032) 230-8888 or visit www.cebupacificair.com .

JUST WON AN iPHONE from Globe… but I left their event early so I forfeited it… FML

OK OK OK, sooooooo, apparently I won an iPhone at an event today!!! But…. I left the event early… to go to another event…. so I pretty much forfeited the iPhone…. NOOOOOO!!!!!!!

I just came back from crying in the shower and though it may take some time to fully recover from this (if that’s even possible), I’m going to try and sum up all my composure to tell you this story.

First of all I want to thank the cool people at Globe, especially my buddy and fellow video blogger: Coy of ThisisCoy.net for always inviting myself and Hannah (FlairCandy.com) to the cool events from Globe.

Globe-Flagship-Store-Launch-Win-iPhone-Samsung-Galaxy-Android-6 Globe-Flagship-Store-Launch-Win-iPhone-Samsung-Galaxy-Android-3

Tonights Globe event was indeed cool as always. They were launching their “Globe Flagship Store” which supposedly aims to provide top notch customer service and allow for hands on interaction with the phones, gadgets and gizmos that they have at the Globe stores.

Globe-Flagship-Store-Launch-Win-iPhone-Samsung-Galaxy-Android-3 Globe-Flagship-Store-Launch-Win-iPhone-Samsung-Galaxy-Android-7

This big event was held at the Ayala Museum to show off their Globe Flagship Store at Greenbelt 4.

Globe-Flagship-Store-Launch-Win-iPhone-Samsung-Galaxy-Android-12 Globe-Flagship-Store-Launch-Win-iPhone-Samsung-Galaxy-Android-17

What I thought was really cool about it was how they had legendary street guide Carlos Celdran there to walk us to the actual Globe store. For those of you who don’t know Carlos Celdran, he’s a guy who revolutionized the way we do walking tours and the way we look at the Philippines, one step at a time. He leads walking tours all around the metro called “Walk This Way” where he takes groups of tourists and locals around Metro Manila while humorously and articulately conveying the cool facts, history and info about certain places you pass by. Find out more about Carlos Celdran on his blog: CeldranTours.blogspot.com or follow him on Twitter at @carlosceldran.

Globe-Flagship-Store-Launch-Win-iPhone-Samsung-Galaxy-Android-15 Globe-Flagship-Store-Launch-Win-iPhone-Samsung-Galaxy-Android-18

Anyway, back to my story…

As I was saying, Carlos Celdran was there to walk us from the Ayala Museum, up the escalator to the new Globe Flagship Store. It was literally like 2 minutes away, but was still fun to finally meet Carlos and to have him say “Walk This Way” as he led us to the store.

So after doing that, I immediately left the Globe event even though they said they were giving away some phones at the end. See the reason I left was coz my other good friends Azrael, of Azraelsmerryland.blogspot.com and Jonel of LetsGoSago.net, reminded me of another event at one of the best steak places in Manila. My tummy was grumbling so I decided that it would be a good idea to leave.

I told Hannah that I was leaving, but she decided to stay as her “ESP” was kicking in, telling her she was going to win something. (ESP… yeah right!)

According to Hannah, her “ESP” actually told her that I was going to win something, but she didn’t think much of it and let me go my merry way.

Now comes the part where my life turns into SUCK!

I get caught in some CRAZY traffic along Makati Ave. I literally have to go like two blocks away but instead, this takes me like 45 minutes to do so. While I’m hungry, tired, in a rush and late for my next event (I HATE being late), I get this text message….

Text Messages 002

Followed by this one….

Text Messages 004

Then this one…

Text Messages 003

That’s about the time I freak out in the car…

Text Messages 005

I screamed, non-stop, for the next 26 minutes and 37 seconds that I had to drive in that god-forsaken hell hole of a traffic jam that’s called Makati Avenue to get two blocks down!

Finally I get there to my next event. I see the two other guys who won prizes but left early sitting at the end of the table, I gladly join them to share my new found grief with them, besides, misery loves company. I sit next to Azrael and Jonel and show them the text I received…

We then do nothing for the rest of the night other than remind each other about the stupidity that had taken place.

Jonel: “So… it’s ok, I’m sure this steak is going to be worth it…”

Azrael: “Yeah… we’ll call yours the Samsung Galaxy Steak! It probably tastes better than Vince’s iSteak!”

Vince: “Well, look on the bright side… at least my old phone is about to break down and I really need a new phone…. waaaaittt…. DAMNIT!”

Jonel: “Azrael, does your Android Steak have Google?”

Vince: “It’s all good guys, see if I was dying in the dessert, I couldn’t eat that iPhone to save my life! But this steak would nourish me!”

Azrael: “Yeah, but your iPhone would have GPS…”

Jonel: “And you could call for help…”

Vince: “I hate you all….”

We then take our own moments of silence and cry for a bit. We then named our little club as the “No Phones Club” which is, today, an exclusive club only for idiots that leave events before the raffles at the end.

picard-facepalm

So at the end of the night, I swing back by Greenbelt 4 to pick up Hannah. She gets in the car and starts talking about how her “ESP” told her I was going to win but she didn’t listen to it and blah blah blah about this ESP crap.

Vince: “That ESPN stuff doesn’t work!”

Hannah: “It’s ESP… and yes it does. It’s just like intuition or your sixth sense”

Vince: “More like sixth bullshit!”

Hannah: “Really, it does work.”

Vince: “Well ask your ESPN what number between 1 – 15 I’m thinking of right now!”

Hannah: “13”

Vince: ” … “

Hannah: “Did I get it right?”

Vince: “…. Lucky guess!”

After that I decided to just shut up and drive.

So what important lesson did we learn from all this? Well I’ll tell you later… I have this other event I need to go to now….

Vince-is-a-Retarded-Idiot

*Anyway I’ll tell you more about the really good, like phone worth good, steak place we went to on WhenInManila.com soon. —- *** UPDATED!!! Just posted the steak that’s better than an iPhone…. My iSteak here.

**Thanks again to Globe for the really cool event! Check out their new interactive store at Greenbelt 4!

Serena Williams No Bra = BIG FOOT! Google Trends Funnies

So I was reading my news and seeing what’s trending in the Googleverse. As always, I check the “Google Trends” of the hour to see what’s buzzing on the interweb. To my curiosity (or porn addiction as some might call it), I clicked on the trending topic of  “serena williams no bra.”

I went on my merry (A.D.H.D.) way, clicking on other things and having them all load at the same time. Maybe checking my other porn video download as well as my illegal music transfer rates, when finally I clicked back on that said “serena williams no bra” headline… then as I was about to read on… I noticed one thing…. in the “Related Searches” field… Google somehow matched up “serena williams no bra” with BIG FOOT!!!!!

Hilarity ensued…

Charlotte Iserbyt – Deliberate Dumbing Down of the World

This is definitely going on my “To-Read” list!

Charlotte Iserbyt – Deliberate Dumbing Down of the World

A WHISTLEBLOWER’S ACCOUNT

Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, former Senior Policy Advisor in the U.S. Department of Education, blew the whistle in the `80s on government activities withheld from the public. Her inside knowledge will help you protect your children from controversial methods and programs. In this book you will discover:

  • how good teachers across America have been forced to use controversial, non-academic me
  • how “school choice” is being used to further dangerous reform goals, and how home schooling and private education are especially vulnerable.
  • how workforce training (school-to-work) is an essential part of an overall plan for a global economy, and how this plan will shortcircuit your child’s future career plans and opportunities.
  • how the international, national, regional, state and local agendas for education reform are all interconnected and have been for decades.


A CHRONOLOGICAL PAPER TRAIL

the deliberate dumbing down of america is a chronological history of the past 100+ years of education reform. Each chapter takes a period of history and recounts the significant events, including important geopolitical and societal contextual information. Citations from government plans, policy documents, and key writings by leading reformers record the rise of the modern education reform movement. Americans of all ages will welcome this riveting expose of what really happened to what was once the finest education system in the world.

Readers will appreciate the user-friendliness of this chronological history designed for the average reader not just the academician. This book will be used by citizens at public hearings, board meetings, or for easy presentation to elected officials.

Publication of the deliberate dumbing down of america is certain to add fuel to the fire in this nation’s phonics wars. Iserbyt provides documentation that Direct Instruction, the latest education reform fad in the classroom, is being institutionalized under the guise of “traditional” phonics thanks to the passage of the unconstitutional Reading Excellence Act of 1998.

Full Forever Young Lyrics:

Forever Young

Jay-Z feat Mr. Hudson

[Mr. Hudson sings]
Let’s dance in style
Let’s dance for a while
Heaven can wait we’re only watching the sky
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not
Let us die young or let us live forever
We don’t have the power but we never say never
Sitting in the sandpit
Life is a short trip
The music’s for the sad man

[chorus]
Forever young I wanna be
Forevery young
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever and ever
Forever young I wanna be
Forevery young
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever, forever

[Jay-z sings]
So we livin life like a video
Where the sun is always out and you never get old
and the champaign is always cold
and the music is always good
and the pretty girls just happen to stop by in the hood
and they hop they pretty ass up on the hood of that pretty ass car
without a wrinkle in today
cuz there is no tomorrow
just a picture perfect day
that last a whole lifetime
and it never ends
Because all we have to do is hit rewind
so lets just stay in the moment smoke some weed drink some wine
reminisce talk some shit forever young is in your mind
leave a mark they can’t erase. Neither space nor time
So when the director yells cut
I’ll be fine
I’m forever young

[chorus]
Forever young I wanna be
Forever young
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever and ever
Forever young I wanna be
Forever young
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever, forever

[Jay-z sings]
Fear not where, fear not why, fear not much while we’re alive
Life is for living not living uptight
Until you’re somewhere up in the sky
Fear not die I’ll be alive for a million years bye bye are not for legends I’m forever young my name shall survive
Through the darkest blocks, over kitchen stoves, over Pyrex pots, My name shall be passed down to generations while debatin’ up in barber shops
Young slung, hung here, Showed that a nigga from here, With a little ambition, just what we can become here.
And as the father pass the story down to his son’s ear Young get younger every year,yeah
So if you love me baby this is how you let me know, Don’t ever let me go, thats how you let me know, baby

[chorus]
Forever young I wanna be
Forever young
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever and ever
Forever young I wanna be
Forever young
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever, forever

[Jay-z sings]
Slammin’ Bentley doors, hoppin’ outta Porsche
Poppin’ Up on Forbes list
Gorgeous, hold up, Niggas thought I lost it
They be talking bullshit, I be talking more shit, They nauseous, hold up I’ll be here forever You know I’m on my four shit I ain’t with foreclosure I will never forfeit Less than four bars Guru bring the chorus in Did you get the picture yet I’m painting you a portrait of Young

[chorus]
Forever young I wanna be
Forevery young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever
Forever young

CRAZY HAIL STORM VIDEO!!!

Good thing all we have to worry about in the Philippines are earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding, typhoons, corrupt politicians and monster babies (tiyanak). Whew! I was worried for a second there…

STOP Bullying Those Whom Cannot Defend Themselves!!! Not something to LolCat about!

OK, I don’t usually react negatively or emotionally to a lot of things. I’m a really laid back type of guy and I don’t really get into confrontations or arguments with a lot of people (I can’t even really think of anyone I’m in bad terms with right now). Though there is one thing that really gets me fired up, it’s when those who can, bully those who can’t! It’s when someone who has power takes advantage of someone, or something, that has no power whatsoever to defend himself / herself / itself.

Now I’m talking about children, elderly, men or women and even animals. Yes, you are much bigger, much stronger and much more capable of hurting them, so why use that power you have to hurt someone else? Are you that insecure and feeble that you have to abuse those whom cannot protect themselves to make yourself feel like you have a bigger dick?

I just feel really pissed off right now as my sister’s cat (I’m a big animal person) came home with a rope, tied VERY tightly on his neck. It wasn’t any accidental tangle as I could clearly see it was tied. I could barely slide in my scissor to cut the rope off. Now I’m not sure if our cat (“Snug”)was tied up to something else, or how my cat was able to get away, but the rope was somehow cut loose and fortunately, our cat was able to come home ok, but seemingly very tired and very scared. I assume he had a hard time breathing with that rope tied tightly like that. Oh and also, Snug has a collar, meaning he is someone’s pet! Although, even if a cat doesn’t have a collar, it still does not give anyone any right to hurt them!

This is the rope I cut that was on our cat –

Snug’s actually a really nice cat. I mean maybe he can get a little noisy with him meowing to get attention, but he really loves people and other cats. I found out how nice he was when he once brought home a stray kitten. The kitten was barely a few days old, but we could tell that it was dying. We tried to nurse it back to health, but we found out that the kitten actually had a disease, which also made us assume that the kitten’s mom abandoned this one as to save the other kittens in the litter. Of course, this is going really far out into koo koo land, but we then imagine our cat, Snug, seeing the kitten abandoned, then brought it home to his own mom – my sister. But yes, the kitten survived a few more days but was unfortunately stricken with some really bad disease and really couldn’t make it. Either way, Snug thinks he’s a mom sometimes, even though he’s a guy cat.

Pics of Snug sleeping / playing dead…

He’s fine…. he just sleeps like that

Anyway, I’ve heard of people here in my little compound not liking cats and even putting them into plastic bags and throwing them into the river (though I have never personally seen this). Just want to give you a heads up that your cock does not get any bigger and you don’t get any cooler for bullying those who cannot defend themselves. Please stop what your doing and instead, try to make this world a better place. Also, I will report you to proper authorities as there are laws against cruelty to any living beings, such as cats and dogs, who feel pain just like you, who feel fear just like your parents would, who can love just like your grandparents could, who FEEL just like your kids and your fellow human beings do. (how would you FEEL if you were tied up with a rope on your neck?)

Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS)http://www.paws.org.ph

The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is a volunteer-based non-government organization whose goal is to prevent animal cruelty through education, animal sheltering and advocacy. PAWS believes that the creation of a more peaceful society starts with the widening of mankind’s circle of compassion which includes animals, thereby envisions a nation that respects animals, practices responsible pet ownership and protects wildlife.

So again, please pick on someone your own size if you really need to. But I’d much rather prefer if you just be nice to everyone and everything that lives, breathes and shares the same planet as you do.

Oh and by the way… LEAVE OUR CAT ALONE!!!

Hope that’s not too much to ask.
