一隻小海龟在海中游泳,在海面碰到一个从来没有见过的东西,感觉十分新奇,便向前问:「你是什麽东西啊?」

这个东西回答说:「我是龙!」说完便幽然地漂离开了。

经过了一百年,小海龟已成了大海龟,在海面上,他又碰到了这一百年前的老朋友,让他惊奇的是,自己从小海龟变成了大海龟,可是这龙的形体却一点也没有改变!

海龟自以为是世界最长寿的动物,此刻却碰到了更厉害的角色,很吃味的问道:

「你是什麽龙啊,为何都不会改变,也不会衰老呢?」

只听一个声音隐隐地自对方传出 ………..「喔!我是保丽龙!」

Amber Chia's hot PETA Asia-Pacific ad

Chinese-Malaysian cover model and actor Amber Chia (The 3rd Generation, Trio & a Bed) earned her stripes as a friend to animals who are imprisoned in zoos by starring in an eye-catching PETA anti-captivity ad in which the fresh-faced beauty—who has graced the pages of Harper’s Bazaar, FHM, Playboy, and NuYou—poses wearing only painted tiger stripes to bring in the Year of the Tiger. “Tigers, elephants, and chimpanzees aren’t meant to live fenced in any more than I am,” Chia explains. “The born free should stay free.”


Amber Chia for PETA Asia-Pacific

Animals in zoos are sentenced to a lifetime of boredom, loneliness, and abuse. Even the biggest zoos cannot provide the space, exercise, privacy, or mental stimulation that the animals they imprison need, much less fulfill animals’ other complex needs. As a result of their confinement, animals in zoos frequently exhibit neurotic behavior such as constant pacing, head-swaying, and circling. In response to their never-ending frustration, some even resort to self-mutilation and other abnormal and self-destructive behavior.

Make It a Good Year for Tigers! Help Animals in Zoos

Stay away from zoos and animal displays, and encourage other people to do the same. Take our pledge to boycott zoos, and promise never to support any business that profits from the confinement of animals.

3只可爱的马来亚小老虎,迫不及待的睁开眼睛看看这个花花世界。

全球华人正等待虎啸龙吟、威风鼎鼎的福虎到来人间,可是,大马的特產──马来亚虎却面临绝种的命运,因此野生动物保护专家正努力防止马来亚虎绝种。

近年来,大马的国宝马来亚虎的数量在急剧减少,主要原因是人类大量的砍伐森林,导致老虎棲息地丧失,加上捕杀等活动的影响,马来亚虎数量不断减少,已经成了濒危物种。

老虎交易活动层出不穷

据知在大马,老虎交易的活动仍然层出不穷,並私下售卖老虎的肉、犬齿,爪子或毛皮等。目前在马来半岛仅存500头马来亚虎。

老虎为猫科动物,也是亚洲最强大的食肉动物之一,老虎拥有猫科动物中最长的爪子,集速度力量於一身是最完美的捕食者。

森林之王老虎在自然界中没有天敌,相等於动物界里的“皇帝”。

The butterfly dream 庄周梦见蝴蝶

庄周梦见蝴蝶 (蔡志忠作品)

庄周梦见蝴蝶 (蔡志忠作品)

“昔者庄周梦為蝴蝶,栩栩然蝴蝶也,自喻适志与,不知周也。俄然觉,则蘧蘧然周也。不知周之梦為蝴蝶与,蝴蝶之梦為周与?週与蝴蝶则必有分矣。此之谓物化。”

Once Zhuangzi dreamt he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn’t know he was Zhuangzi. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Zhuangzi. But he didn’t know if he was Zhuangzi who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Zhuangzi. Between Zhuangzi and a butterfly there must be some distinction! This is called the Transformation of Things. (2, tr. Burton Watson 1968:49)
