I supposed to take picture of my Midori Sour with cherries being thrown on it. Unfortunately, the lighting wasn't on my side and I really wanted to take, at least one, good shot that night. So, there goes Julien LOL. I asked him to drank up my midori, once the cocktail gone I had 3 shinny cherries in my cognac cup. Lied them on my light box and there you go... I named it "Mon Cherries" not a proper English nor French LOL, just a mix of both;)
Until now, all I know about rights are human rights and consumer rights, haven't heard about animal rights, have you? Me too, today, is the first time in my life I heard such a bizarre term, but it is, at least, made me laughed out loud a.k.a LOL.
So what is this animal's right is all about ? here are the summary of the article I got from Yahoo! News. And my fave part is how pig seems like don't really appreciate this animal's right movement LOL.
By the way, since Pyong is a fox, isn't that mean I will also be granted such rights? LOL
All Swiss animals are equal - but some more so than others
GENEVA (AFP) - Want to get rid of your goldfish? Swiss owners who have been flushing them down the toilet -- still alive -- must now find other methods since strict, new animal protection laws went into effect Monday.
Instead, a fish must be first knocked out and then killed before its body can be disposed of, the law stipulates.
The new legislation spells out in exhaustive detail how all domestic animals are to be treated, whether they be pets, farm animals or destined for scientific experiments.
Wild animals are also covered by the law if they reside in zoos or circuses.
Just like in George Orwell's satire "Animal Farm" however, some animals enjoy more "equal rights" than others.
Not only are goldfish now afforded a more "dignified" death than being dispatched round the U-bend, but it is now also forbidden for Swiss anglers to practise catch-and-release fishing or recreational catching only to throw the fish back in the water, or to use live fish as bait.
In the domestic sphere, common household pets such as budgies and hamsters can no longer be kept by themselves.
The same applies for more exotic breeds such as lamas, alpacas and yaks -- admittedly not your average pet but a common feature in zoos.
Even sheep and goats must have at least "a visual contact with their fellows," according to the new law.
Man's "best friend," the faithful hound, comes in for special treatment as dog owners will be obliged by law to take special classes on how to raise Fido properly so he is less likely to bite.
And Swiss dog-owners wishing to "customise" their pets as a fashion accessory will not be allowed to crop their tails or ears -- nor "force them to have surgery to get droopy ears."
But one cannot help but wonder if the animals would really welcome all the provisions Swiss lawmakers have generously bestowed upon them.
Pigs, for example, are often said to be happiest when rolling around in the mud -- but now they have the legal right to a shower to freshen up.
What a beautiful cup of coffee...sometimes I wonder, is a shape or a design of a cup could affect the taste of the coffee.....if so, I think Starbucks needs to change the design of its paper cups or mugs lol
Last weekend, when I visited Italy, I happened to stop by at a local cafe and ordered an Cafe Latte Machiatto. My husband ordered a special cold latte and it came in a very contemporary design mug, and me, they put my hot latte into this special colorful mug. First impression, this latte is special. Then I take a picture of the mug before I have a sip on it. The cafe latte machiatto turned our to be super delicious, sorry Starbucks, there was no Starbucks at all at Domodosolla....Don't get confused, I am a Starbucks' coffee lover. I only go to the other cafe when I know there is no Starbucks cafe around.
Is really the machiatto taste so good because of the mug they used or because they use a better bean than Starbucks? If the second answer makes more sense, then I think, the manager of Starbucks needs to contact this cafe's owner to ask where they got their bean from...but from what I sensed, I think they use some kind of Starbuck's Verona coffee instead of the espresso roast....
HEY STARBUCKS, D'YOU HEAR ME?? CAN YOU TRY ONE TIME MAKING THE LATTE BUT USING THE VERONA BEAN INSTEAD??? LOL
