Stop Animal Cruelty - Say NO to fur use

Have you ever thought you could harm, torture or abuse the animal indirectly for something you fancy about such as fur clothing? I never realised how inhumanity were these animals being skinned alive until I read the leaflet from The Humane Society of the United States.








It states that "Over 40 million animals are killed for fur each year. Many of them are caught in painful traps and suffer for days before they are killed. Animals raised on fur ranches are no luckier. Since there are no laws to govern how they are treated or killed, millions of animals are raised in tiny, unsanitary cages with no veterinary care. These animals are then killed by such inhumane practices as bludgeoning, strangulation, gassing or genital electrocution. Please shop compassionately. Choose fur-free fashions."








Learn more about Fur-Free Campaign from the leaflet below or at humansociety.org/furfree. (For easy reading, please double click on the scanned leaflet below.)















Some photos (as below) were taken in front of Neiman Marcus outlet at the downtown of San Francisco. WHY was the booth set-up in front of Neiman Marcus? This is to educate and remind the public NOT to purchase fur clothing from Neiman Marcus. Moreover, the latest news of Neiman Marcus promotes Manolo Blahnik Boots as Ocelot Fur (an endangered species) can be found at http://www.hsus.org/furfree/news/neiman_marcus_ocelot_fur_081909.html




I took a lot of courage to look at the act of brutality from the photographs. I am strongly NOT recommending the pregnant women to view these pictures .....


























































Please spread among your friends and colleagues... "We Choose NOT to wear fur or fur trim."

Photos of my "children"

These are Max (the Miniature Scnauzher aged 2 years) and Baby (Shih Tzu aged 4 years)




Max loves to be shot. He immediately poses in front of camera like a professional model....




On the other hand, Baby hates to be photographed. It takes a lot of patient to persuade and trick her with snacks so that she would look at the camera. Normally, 2 out of 10 are the best photos taken each time.




(snorbish look **)


(grrrr... I hate photos!!!)

Pictures of San Francisco

A close friend told me, San Francisco was a nice place to visit and could find many Asians staying there compared to other states in America. She convinced me that I would able to adapt and love San Francisco very much. When William and I visited America's Embassy, the Immigration Officer told us the same thing too. How truth is it? The only thing I know about San Francisco is the Golden Gate Bridge and the rows of Victorian houses (the clips I had seen from The Full House series which were acted by Mary-Kate Olsen and Alsey Olsen). Yes, the twin sisters acted as the little girl named "Michelle."


Golden Gate Bridge
However, the opportunity to know more about San Francisco landed when William had to be there for two weeks on his business trips.


William stayed at Stanford Park Hotel in the City of Palo Alto (about 40 minutes drive from the City of San Francisco). He spent US$159 per night but breakfast was not provided.
