How to Care for Your Pet Rabbit 101 [Basis Care]

After years of not having a pet to love, I got myself a cute bunny right after I finished my first internship. The job was arduous and I am glad I am done with it. So to reward myself with a cute rabbit. 

How I got my bunny

Before we continue, I have a little story to tell you guys. So I went to the nearest pet store after school (yes, it was the day I finished my internship and also the same day I started school). I found a cute droppy ear bunny that I liked. So I asked the store assistant to get it out of the cage for me. I was really excited and all. Then the lady asked me if I have a bunny cage to which I replied Yes. She asked me for the size of the cage and I told her it was a decent size cage which I bought long time ago from a pet store. Then, surprisingly, the store assistant refused to sell me the bunny unless I buy their $130 cage. I was like "SAY WHAT?" Then she said my cage is too small and how I would feel if someone shut me in a closet. I was like "Woah... what... the... this is definitely NOT the type of customer service I am used to." So I argued that I will get a bigger cage once I'm bigger and I really wanted the bunny today because it's a significant day in my life to me. But the lady downright refused to sell me the bunny! I was kinda shocked. I am usually very patient and all but man... this just takes the cake. 

So I went home, empty-handed and very, very disappointed. My dad saw how depressed I was and drove me to another pet store. We looked around and the bunnies were all born the same day. My dad told me to get the biggest one and I was like "Why? I want to raise it from baby." My dad explained that they are all born the same day and I should get the strongest of the batch, which is the biggest one. I agreed and that's how we got my bunny. He was the biggest, strongest and has softest fur coat. The best thing is that the store assistants were super nice and pleasant, unlike the other one! Also, my dad bought the bunny for me. Double YES! Dad, you are awesome. Seriously. 

Step 1: You must really be determined to love your pet. 

I sincerely care and treasure my bunny, Timber with all my heart. 
Tips: buy/adopt a baby animal you can easily form a bond with. When they are baby, you will feel a sort of parental instinct to care and provide. It is easier to form a bond. 

Step 2: Bond with your pet

With Timber, when introduced him to my home, he was very scared. Instead of putting him in a cage, I let him out to roam my room for a few days. He obviously poo and peed which I have to clean up but it is worthy. Here is why you should do what I did. Your new pet is scared. You don't want to immediately lock him up in a cage/jail. It may feel even more stressed. So in my case, I let him free in my room so he felt less... of a prisoner. He is free to run and jump. 

Also, since he is in the room with you, he recognized you (footsteps, voice) and knows you don't mean harm. That way he is less likely to run for his life the second you go near.

Tips: Let your pet in your room for a few days. You can put your pet on your chest and let it feel your heartbeats. It will increase the bonding.

Step 3: Cage Time

Eventually, your pet has to go to its cage (unless it's a dog/cat then don't cage them). 
Preferably, leave the cage outside where your pet can have fresh air.
Clean their cage every week at least. 

Tips: Stay with your pet for a few minutes while it is adjusting to its new... cage/home. It will feel less abandoned. 

Step 4: Let your pet free everyday for awhile 

I let Timber out on my fenced backyard everyday for 30 mins under close supervision. At first, started small... like out your room... then out your house... then out your patio... introduce each part of your house slowly so your pet can memorize the familiar places. 

I am confident Timber won't escape because I slowly train him that he can go just as far as the fence. My eyes follow him everywhere when he is out by himself (you don't want your pet to get attacked by wandering cats). Whenever he goes near the fence, I go up to him and steer him around. LOL

Don't be afraid to let your pet out to explore. It will love you even more and you can try to incorporate some sort of discipline. Timber knows that at night, he has to go back to cage. At first, he will stare at me with big eyes and wanting me to let him out. But nope. Now, he knows at night = cage = sleep time

Rabbits are curious creatures. So be at ease and let them explore. They make the cutest expression.

Tips: Let your pet explore one area of your house at a time. If you don't have a yard then let him roam in your house.

Step 5: Keep any wire away from your pet bunny

Tips: Just let your bunny roam at rooms that don't have wire. Or just loop your wire higher than its reach.

For starters, you should just try out these simple steps & tips. It will make your pets happy and your life bright and glorious. Next time, we will talk about bringing your pets with you on a vacation (huh, try that with a bunny) and other pets' funny behaviours. 

Here is a teaser. Happy Timber on a lake-side vacation!!!

Do You Know...Y Girls Like Douchebags?

This week's Do You Know is going to be about... Y Girls Like Douchebags?

I came upon this question far too many times on the Internet (especially 9gag) and it seems like many young men are wondering WHY would girls do that? It seems so illogical and masochistic.

As a woman, I believe at one point in our life, we experienced such crazy attraction to bad boys. It's like ... inevitable. Of course, there will be women who disagree, I totally understand from their POV as well. What I am saying might just apply to some women. You shouldn't take my words too seriously. I'm just offering my own understanding on this topic.

So why would girls be attracted to bad boys?

1) Of course, let's talk about the handsome bad boys. They may look retarded but at least they aren't too ugly. No. Young teenage girls won't go for ugly bad boys. So good looks matters. Generally, around 12-18, teenagers are not very mature yet. They do silly things that get them in troubles. They still think it's cool to do it. The more they do it, the more girls they get... Whyyyyy? Let's not forget that some bad boys used to be good looking good boys who turned bad when they got too much attention and girls started to throw themselves at them. Like villains in movies, they started off normal and when they got too much power, they fell into darkness. Same story. But I'm not saying bad boys are like Darth Vader.

2) Girls Love Glory
For some girls, dating a bad boy can be seen as a challenge. Why would the school's #1 sexy hotshot wants to date you? You gotta have something the guy wants. So what's it is? People will start gossiping and create lots of noise. Some girls like to be in the spotlight. You can't blame them. Everyone wants to be famous. Some just do it differently. Also, girls like to flirt with danger. They think they can be the special one who can save the bad boys from their secret darkness. It's like... a fantasy girls develop. "He treats everyone like crap but not me. I am his special person." That's probably why Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey are popular among the female population. The main heroine is the only one the handsome protagonist ever wants. Bella (and whatever-her-name-is... Anastasia?) eventually helps Edward (or Christian) out of his misery. Big whoop! Girls go gaga over that. I myself am not easily moved by such cheesy plot and cliche characters but many girls are. They lack exposure to literature. Sadly. Anyway. Next!

3) Seduction
One of the main features bad boys have is that they are very good at charming people. They whisper sweet-nothing to your ears and turn you into goo. They are the Don Juan. Once they get what they want, they dump the girls. It's obvious. Bad boys have their reputation to upkeep. They don't want people to think they are "attached". No, that would sound horrible. Almost too horrible. That's why they move constantly from girls to girls like changing clothes. So from a good boy's perspective, bad boys are the ultimate douchebags. They get the girls but they don't give a damn.

You may ask me: 'I'm a good guy, I treat the girls fairly, why won't they want me?'

Answer: Some girls like good guys but most girls will be like "but you are soooo booooring. I'm young and I want to have fun! You are not fun at all! Why would I date you when I can date Don Juan who is so interesting?" Now, I am not saying you must all turn into bad boys the next day. From experience, I know plenty of good guys who are super interesting. They get their girls later on... why later on? Why not when they are in high school or something. Why later? Next point says it all.

4) Natural Selection
Girls like capable men. It's instinct. Even in animals, females only mate with powerful males. If a male lion loses to another male lion, the winner lion kills all the cubs. That sucks. Imagine you must witness some douchebags kill your kids  because your useless husband can't put on a fight. Same goes for humans. In prehistoric period, you need to have an independent man to survive. The guys had to go build a hut, hunt wild animals (Can you imagine a fat bum chasing after a deer?) and go to fight rival clans. They want men who have the highest survival rate. Who wants to mate with a loser who fails in everything and leave you all the burdens? The same apply for men about women. You want to date sexy women who you subconsciously relate to: She can birth me good children. The bigger their boobs or wider their curves are, the more you lust after them. Now that you kind of understand, back to bad boys. You probably realize that in school, bad boys are pretty popular. Why? Natural selection. Nowadays, men don't have to prove themselves as much as before so...? So for young girls, they associate bad boys as someone independent and worthy. Bad boys just seem so wild, strong and confident that girls just can't help but go weak in their knees.

Girls are just attracted to men who they deem worthy. Once they mature, they realize swag and bad boy stunts won't get them good reputation. Bad boys won't give them big cash. Bad boys can't provide them the ideal life they wanted so badly. What now? The answer is they turn to the good boys who used to be very nerdy and boring. Good boys studied a lot and so they become successful. Being successful, it means lots of cash inflow. You hear it so often. Women (not girls anymore) love money. They do anything to have money. Why? Because now that we don't need to go chase deer and build our own huts. Money does all that for us. So obviously, women want money. It sort of compensates for the lack of manliness in men these days. Before: strong husband = high survival rate. Now, having lots of money = better survival rate. The need for capable men suddenly didn't sound so necessary anymore (now that women too work).

So what are you supposed to do as a man?
If you really want to get the girls... be assertive. Don't be a pushover. It's not attractive at all. My advice is: be good boys. Eventually, women will come to you. They will realize they want men who treat them fairly (something bad boys might lack). In the end, people just want to be loved. Even bad boys. Even your grandma, your dogs and hamsters.

Otakuthon (Anime Convention)

So I attended an anime convention (Otakuthon) on August 4 2012. It was an amazing experience. Many of the cosplays were magnificent. We saw all sorts of characters there. Blue mascot Happy from Fairy Tail, Dante from Devil May Cry, Kurono from Gantz, baby Goku, lolitas, Avengers gang...etc. Quite eye-opening. The energy in there was just explosive. People rushing here and there, taking pictures of other characters while other people taking their pictures. It was chaotic in a fun way!
Here we are at Palais de Congres, Place-d'armes (Chinatown) Montreal

Quick background information... Otakuthon has been going on for many years now. It's usually on August. The price is fair when you buy your ticket early. I bought mine on April for $40 (for 3 days). Otherwise it would cost you Friday ($30), Saturday ($40), Sunday ($30). Saturday is usually the busiest with a lot of attractions: Exhibition Hall, Market Place (where you go crazy on spending spree), Contest, Maid Cafe, Gaming Hall, Work Shop, Yurithon, Yaoithon...etc

           A beautiful Korra from Legend of Korra                                              Two adorable lolita girls
      This cosplayer captures Korra's feisty atttitude!

 If you dress up properly, you get to have paparazzi for 3 days. For sure. The camera goes off, blinding you with flashes. You get to enjoy the attention just like a celebrity would. Otakus will approach you shyly with their phone/camera and ask you for a photo. Girls drool after sexy male cosplayers who oozed manliness! Trust me. It's really fun. You don't have to be an anime fanatic to enjoy an anime convention. Just go there and enjoy all the bursting energy!

                           Assassin Creed Ezio?                                                                        Fem!Thor & Fem!Loki

Now we enter the market place where artists sell their merchandises. Posters, keychains, pins, toys, figurines and anime pillow cases are very popular. I was surprised to see many otakus walking around, very satisfied, hugging their anime girl pillow(s). However this pillow fetish isn't just exclusive for guys. I have seen girls buying Hetalia boys' pillow cases.

This is Miss Hamlet from Starfighter, Hamlet Machine. She is the yaoi artist.

This is one priceless poster my friend got. It's sooo adorable!

                     Here we see Happy. Very cute.                                         Well, what a surprise! Crossdressing nuns with                                                                                                                                     a machine gun!


We got some Takoyaki squidballs (4 for $4)
 Here is a video on how Takoyaki are made. It's quite impressive. It reminds me of a spider making its web.

Pretty girls. Those boobs...
They just froze there in the middle of the room, letting people take their picture.

                     Final Fantasy (Gabranth)                                                            Alphonso from Full Metal Alchemist.                                       

You can see a Newtwo and a Menos Grandes. Impressive costumes!

After one exhausting day (I just went for the Saturday) I spent much less than I expected. I was scared I will enter a spending spree so I limited my cash before hand. Turn out, it wasn't necessary.  There are a lot of stuff I wanted to buy but I didn't. Why! I saw the Squall Action Figure for $40! I  was sooo tempted to buy him. Then I get home and searched for him online. That's when I discovered TFAW selling him for $29.99! Woohooo~ (see Final Fantasy Dissidia Squall that I uploaded on August 2012)

Let's go through quickly what I got...

A poster by Hamlet with her autograph $8
A notepad (From Poppy Hill) $3
A keychain of Natsume (Gave it to my mom) $2
A Eustass 'Captain' Kid figurine $4.75
A Trafalgar Law's crew flag $3

It's a great deal!
They are so ridiculously cheap and worthy. 
No regret!

If anyone is going to Otakuthon next year, tell me (comment below). I am looking forward in meeting new people!

Letters to Crushes

Yes, this is going to be a really adorable and sweet post!

Warning: The following discussion is incredibly cheesy and cute.

I discovered this site about 3 years ago and I visited it on rare occasions. I think that site is absolutely brilliant. Basically, Letters to Crushes allows people of all ages and races to confess their undying crush without anyone knowing who they are. It's so rare on the internet these days. Everyone is very respectful of each other. There is no bashing or hurtful post. Isn't it nice? To be honest, it's one of the cutest sites ever.

Here are some extracts that I like. Please don't sue me. I would credit the people if I know who they are! I hold no evil intent towards the writers of the letters. I just want to spread the joy of being in love. 

Read them while listening to this amazing love song...
