Puppy love boosts kitty

By | Compassion | No Comments

DOGS and cats are traditionally sworn backyard enemies — but not Tinkerbell the chihuahua.

She has not only let three newborn kittens on to her turf, she has adopted them and is protecting the kittens with as much gusto as she is her own four pups.

Tinkerbell went into labour last week and had a caesarean birth at the Hobart Animal Hospital after experiencing problems.

While her owner Angie Reynolds, of Mornington, was at Tinkerbell’s bedside, a man came into the hospital with three cold and hungry newborn kittens.

After learning the kittens would most likely be put down, Ms Reynolds decided she would take them home and hand-rear the cats until they were old enough to go to new homes.

“When we got home, I put the kittens with the dog to see if she accepted them,” Ms Reynolds said.

“Not only has Tinkerbell accepted them, she cleans and snuggles the kittens and gets frantic if I pick one up.” 

Ms Reynolds plans to offer the kittens for adoption and offer her four purebred puppies for sale when the unusual litter has found its collective feet.

“Mother and all her babies are doing well,” she said.

By | Chinese calligraphy, Compassion, Juesatta art, Photography | 5 Comments

春暖人间、家家贴春联已经迈入第7届了。自沈老离世之后,我们仍可感受到他的精神,马六甲的书法风气犹在。

上个星期六是庚寅年“春暖人间、家家贴春联”的开幕。这个活动在马六甲的鸡场街举行了开笔仪式。多位国内书法家在鸡场街街头挥写出3幅长15呎的榜书,吸引许多人的围观。虽然我之后才来到了那里,没有看到朋友张梓毫还有几位名书法家的挥毫,却赶得及见识到朋友10岁的汤耀坤挥毫。他所写出的“龙腾虎跃”,一笔一画的刚劲,丝毫不逊色于大人。同时,我也见到了友族同胞小朋友对中华文化的热爱,写出的字漂亮的令人惊叹。

现场也义卖名家书法作品,為峇章圣约翰洗肾中心筹募运作经费。过去六年,这个活动已经筹得10万零吉的善款,捐献给慈善机构。现场我也见识到宋群礼老先生,还有许多男女性名书法家的挥毫写春联和义卖。据知今年至今,多位书法家,包括小朋友们,义务挥写8000余幅春联。

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Worshippers found severed heads of pigs at two Malaysian mosques Wednesday following a spate of firebomb attacks on churches amid a dispute over the use of the word “Allah” by Christians, officials said.

It was the most serious incident to hit Islamic places of worship following vandalism and other assaults at 11 churches, a Sikh temple, a mosque and two Muslim prayer halls across the Muslim-majority country in the past three weeks. Pigs are considered unclean by Muslims.

为自己的生命积些力量

By | Wisdom | One Comment

 

人是应该多做些善事,为自己的生命积些力量,让自己活得更有活力。- cinda -

释迦牟尼佛过世曾是一个叫巴都的国王,他和妻子哈雅皇后的感情非常好。两根人之间约定过;不管哪位先过世,一定要回来跟对方说他现在在什么地方。 

后来巴都国王先往生了,死后转生为欲界的帝释天。帝释天为了前世跟哈雅皇后的约定,变成一位俊美的男子,拿着一个漂亮的黄金礼物,跑到皇后的房间

皇后看到他,吓了一跳,问他:“你是谁?怎么会在这里?你想做什么?”   

“我是天上的神。”帝释天说:“皇后!我仰慕你的美貌很久了,希望将这给黄金制成的礼物送给你。但是,皇后,我可不可以要求和你同睡一晚?” 

哈雅皇后非常生气的说:“我会对巴都国王永远忠心,不会做个背叛丈夫的妻子。你不要和我开玩笑,请你回去吧!”说完就把帝释天赶出去。
