Well, its been a long time since any of us last looked at this blog.

This is because I went to Perth and is a student in Conservation and Wildlife biology now. Yep, I have decided that this is what I really want to do and what I really LOVE doing! I've been considering reviving this blog, but honestly I'd like a change of direction, something fresh.

Let me think about it and I'll be back soon!

Anti-whaling activist to go on trial

Okay, so we admit, we have not been blogging for long. Pictures have not been taken as well. But I just had to add the article below.

Food for thought:

NZ anti-whaling activist to go on trial in Japan
27 May 2010, AFP

TOKYO - An anti-whaling activist of the US-based Sea Shepherd Conservation Society was due to go on trial in Japan Thursday for charges relating to high seas clashes earlier this year.

New Zealander Peter Bethune, 45, was arrested in February after he scaled the Shonan Maru II, the security ship of the Japanese whaling fleet, in Antarctic waters following a series of high-seas confrontations.

He faces five charges, including injuring a Japanese crew member with a projectile made of rancid butter, or butyric acid, during one of many clashes between the Sea Shepherd group and Japanese harpoon ships.

He was also charged with trespass, vandalism, obstructing commercial activities and carrying a knife when he scaled the ship.

If convicted he faces up to 15 years in jail.

The Sea Shepherd group pursued and harassed Japanese whalers in Antarctic waters for months in the 2009-2010 season, a campaign which both sides say reduced the Japanese cull by several hundred whales.

Bethune was the captain of the futuristic kevlar powerboat the Ady Gil, which was sliced in two in a collision with the Shonan Maru II in January while carrying six crew and sank soon after.

The next month Bethune scaled the Japanese ship from a jet ski with the intent of making a citizen's arrest of its captain for the attempted murder of the Ady Gil's crew, and to bill him for the sunken vessel.

Instead, Bethune was detained and taken back to Japan, where he was formally arrested by the Japanese Coast Guard.

Japan, which says whaling has been part of its culture for centuries, has also sought Interpol's help to arrest Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson for ordering his crew to harass whaling ships.

So.. What do you guys think?

True.. He was trespassing and probably did present a threat to the harpooners. However, the article did mention that several hundred whales were spared due to their actions.

I say that a life is a life no matter what. I applaud them for being so brave and fighting for the whales.

In time, hopefully lesser people will stick to "traditions" which are destroying our Earth.

That said, I do not eat Shark's Fin as well and do not intend to serve it at any dinner (yes, including my wedding in future).

A Natural Treatment for Mange and Ringworm

It has been a long long time since we've last posted. We were just too busy with life, and not to mention M's online store is rapidly expanding!

We would like to share with our doggie friends a natural treatment for Mange and Ringworm.

Firstly, M has been scouting for a long time, and found out that her long time friend V, actually sold an Oil that is good for that! M calls it Healthy Skin Oil (for the lack of a better name), as it is not only good for Mange or Ringworm but also itchy skin (yes, we've tried it!).

M was speaking to V about managing Mange and Ringworm recently for a Mange case, and was introduced to C, a friend in the land of far far away that deals with many cases of Mange each day!

Here is what C recommended:

For Sarcoptic Mange, you would need to use Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (we've posted on this before!) and a great natural cleaner to bust mites all around the environment as it is contagious.

Sarcoptic Mange will cause loads of itch and irritation on humans, so wash everything the dog has come into contact with, with hot water and in the hottest setting of a dryer if possible.

For Demodectic Mange, add Neem Bark Powder into the meals of the dog, as it is caused by a weak immune system.

As neem is a powerful contraceptive, it will make the mites sterile so you only deal with the mites you have now, and not more in future. Do not forget the raw diet as well - this is IMPORTANT!

For Ringworm, use the Healthy Skin Oil 2-3 times a day and clean the environment with a natural anti-fungal disinfectant such as Colloidal Silver. Wash the affected area once a day with soap and water as well!

We hope furbies with Mange or Ringworm will get well ASAP with this!

Books on Animal Communication, Soapnuts

Books on Animal Communication

M's books from Amazon has arrived a few weeks ago! She hadn't had time to update the blog and take pictures but here is a list of what we bought!

1. Learning Their Language: Intuitive Communication with Animals and Nature
2. Beyond Words: Talking with Animals and Nature
3. Animal Talk: Interspecies Animal Communication

There are four more titles but she has to check them up again. She has read a few books and will review them soon.


M previously introduced her friend to soapnuts and decided to order some herself. They can be ordered from for $37/kg with free shipping!

When the soapnuts arrive, all bedsheets and the humans' clothes will be washed by soapnuts! Pictures will be updated soon.

Pet Groomer Jailed for Hitting Dog

PET groomer Sun Hu was jailed two weeks for using a clipper to hit a dog last month.

The three-year-old Maltese terrier died of head injuries while still on the grooming table.

A district court heard on Friday that Sun, 24, had been working for a year at the Strawberry Pet Shop in Corporation Road in Jurong.

On Sept 13, Mr Deva Rajan Kamalasanan, 47, brought his pet, Junior, to the shop for grooming. About 30 minutes later, he received a phone call telling him that his pet had died.

A post-mortem by the Veterinary Pathology Branch of the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) revealed that the dog had been hit on the head.

The maximum punishment is a $10,000 fine and a year in jail.

Finally, justice is served for Junior's family. The pain Junior's people went through must have really hurt.. No one can understand that better than M.

Hopefully this would be a deterrent for other dubious groomers.

As a groomer, M knows it can be frustrating to groom dogs sometimes. But under NO circumstances should you abuse a dog. A light hit on the bum will not kill a dog, the killer would have to deal a greater blow. Please becareful when bringing your dogs to groomers outside.

The main reason M learnt grooming was so that she could groom us. Thankfully..

A cruelty free lifestyle

Now that we have seen the light, we are embarking towards a 100% cruelty free lifestyle.

We know that we aren't vegans or even vegetarian, but to us, a diet with meat is inevitable. However, even while being meat-eaters, there are some other ways in which we could help animals and the environment.

1. Do not buy animal-tested products/ingredients.

Sure sure.. the argument goes "if you don't test it on animals, how do you know its safe?!". And the answer: TEST IT ON YOURSELF!

After going all natural, M found out that many natural products and their ingredients are not tested on animals but indeed, the inventors of those products test on themselves and family with great results!

For example, the natural soap M always gets hold of is tested by their inventors. Only after reaping great results does the soap go on sale. Some products just work too well on humans and thus get used on pets!

This "animal testing" is different from what we've mentioned above. The products are used by humans and thereafter given to animals when its proven to be useful.

Animal tested products and ingredients involve the cruel confinement of animals (eg. rats, dogs, etc) in cages in laboratories and applying harsh chemicals on the animals' skin, eyes, etc. These chemicals have most likely not been tested for safety in anyway and potentially harm or kill the animal.

2. Use only ALL Natural

ALL Natural meaning no synthetic anything.

We prefer essential oils to fragrances, not only do they smell wonderful, they have aromatherapeutic values as well!

We do not buy products with coloring as it is simply too unnecessary! Why pay more and harm your health and the environment just because of the color? Appreciate Nature as is!

3. Choose Packaging Wisely

Many companies have Corporate Social Responsiblity campaigns now. Look out for them and support companies who support the Environment.

Also, the main reason we use natural soap bars as opposed to natural shampoo is due to the fact that we save a plastic bottle from being manufactured (Greenhouse gases) and from the landfill.

4. Change your buying habits

Firstly, if you don't need it, don't buy it! That in itself is reducing the waste you'd produce.

Secondly, buy local whenever possible. Although it may be hard to do so in Singapore, small things help. Local and organic would be the win+win situation.

Thirdly, reduce the number of trips you make (especially when driving a car) by buying a week's worth of grocery, or a month's worth if the produce could keep that long.

Think Green, and you will naturally be Green. Do let us know if you have more suggestions as well by commenting!

Animal Communication

We were introduced to this by M's customer and silly M did not know that we can all communicate via telepathy!

M's animal communicator and now her mentor has told her many things about us and we feel happier now as we are understood.

M is now a practicing animal communicator who is making progress. She would love to do this as a career, but its still a loooong looong way to go.. Stay tuned for more updates!
