My dog kept smile when he was jogging on a sunny day !
Owning pets in Hong Kong has become increasingly popular. Whether we are pet keepers or not, we are surrounded by animals.
In Hong Kong, some dogs owners treat their dogs like their “daughter and son”. Grooming of dogs goes way beyond a brush and toe-clip — but also includes lavender oxygen therapy and a milk bath etc.
With a lack of dog-friendly open spaces, pooches in Hong Kong are often wheeled around in strollers or carried in their owners’ handbags.
However, hundreds of pet owners in Hong Kong still choose to give up their pets every year. Common reasons for the surrender of dogs including housing does not allow, moving house, no space, no time, behaviour problems of dogs etc.
No matter which pet you are going to have, consider its needs before getting one.
It has been raining for days. When it rains, there seem to be more accidents on roads and more conflicts among people. In recent years, people tend to be less patient. We see people argue with, shout at, or even fight with each other when they have disagreement. People have become more and more agitated. Some are unreasonably rude and hostile.
About two weeks ago, two men were driving on Kwun Tong Bypass. When one wanted to surpass another and the other didn’t let him do so, both of them were furious. The two cars eventually crashed. The two drivers were even angrier and could no longer control themselves. They got off their cars and fought with each other on the highway. It was all due to zero tolerance.
A couple days ago when I was riding on a tram, I heard somebody shouting. I looked back and saw a 50-ish lady who sat by the window blaming a secondary school boy for the fact that the water dripping from his umbrella had dropped onto her feet. He immediately said sorry and the conflict did not arouse another fight.
We see the difference between letting one’s feeling explode and tolerating for a second. If people are less self-centred and understand others a little more, there may be a lot less argument in society.
