For the Tigers!
I didn't know about this until like 1030 in the morning today after reading soon to be bride's post about the tiger blogfest 2010 and I want to do my part for the environment, for nature and definitely for the macho-manly-super fit tigers out there.
Ever wonder why Malaysian neighbourhood is never safe? Ironically, in chinese saying - having a tiger at home brings security and peace against the evil of fire and bulgary. Of course, not the real tiger ... but a symbol of it. Now we know why every year we suffer the consequences of haze and pelbagaian-rompakan (ok, mind my malay :P)
Ever wonder why we have plagues, sickness and uncurable disease? Tigers are hyperactive creatures, playful and fill with energy. They play hard and rest well, to compete in the future days. A classic symbol of yin and yang. What do we do? We kill them for medicines? What do you get in return? You get more plagues, sickness and uncurable diseases ... to top it up, earthquakes and blizzard storm! Hint hint?
Killing a tiger for fur is nonsense and rubbish in the fashion world. Be comfortable in your own skin. Why would you want to wear stripes when you can be naked! Haha... Look at a wider perspective, models need to learn to walk like tigers, proud and glamorous, striking a roaring pose at the end of the stage. Please, it's called a catwalk and shouldn't we learn from the best cat?
Tigers are usually easy target for poachers compared to their cousins, Lions . Wanna know why?, Tigers walk out in the public because they are known for their courage and bravery. So those who hunts them in the open are plain cowards! Walk with them ... if you dare!
Don't let this be the only image of tiger we have for the children of tomorrow
The tiger is our national animal! Our heritage. But today, only less than 500 of them remain in the wild. As Malaysians, we need to stand up and protect our heritage. Speak to your children. Speak to your leaders! Everyone of us can make a difference ...
As how monyetking has put it ... don't let this happen to our national emblem ....
