Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better

My heart is all broken reading about dogs on Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better. Dogs being physically and mentally abused by their owners and random strangers. Dogs being thrown out to an Island to fend for their lives. Strays which didn't survive because rescue was too late. It is heart wrenching to know that we are more than a million in Malaysia and there's only 5% of us who are dedicating our hearts to be the voice and support for these animals who cant speak for themselves.

As I was reading the articles on MDDB, it is so unbelievable that humans can be so cruel to a certain extend. Being in the working world myself, I have encountered numerous people who tend to take advantage of any given situation, even if it means breaking the law, in order to be richer or a step up from where they used to be. We might not realise it but we are no better than the carnivorous animals in the jungle which feed on their own kind in order to survive. What a world we are born into.

Here, organizations such as MDDB (Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better), PAWS Malaysia and SPCA Malaysia are trying so hard to speak and protect our human companions and on the other hand, there are more of us trying to get rid of these animals because they are like pests to certain people. My heart is all out for the people who are trying to reach the world by making a point that humans have no rights to take animals for granted or to abuse them just because they have no home. They have feelings too and we don't get to feel it because they cant speak our language.



Dogs and other animals deserve to be loved. If you have a blog or some other way you can spread an awareness such as this, please do help to do so. I hope that Malaysians will open their eyes and be ONE, as all the media are bragging about, to help each other create a better world for us to live in.

This weekend Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better will be at Trift & Green Bazaar by A Shopaholic's Den located at 32 Square. Be there to support them!

The Review of The Proposal



A brief intro:
The Proposal is a romantic comedy directed by Anne Fletcher and was officially released on June 18, 2009 by Touchstone Pictures. However, the film reached Malaysian theatres much later that its original release date.

The Proposal brings together Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock (who have worked together on a number of films before) as the 2 leading characters in the film.
Sandra Bullock plays Margaret Tate, a Chief Editor at a book company who is soon to be deported to Canada for a year. As a means of avoiding her fate, she spontaneously lies to the company’s management about her coming faux-marriage to assistant Andrew Paxton.

Ryan Reynolds plays Andrew Paxton, the hard-working, kind-hearted, assistant who is forced into the marriage scam created by his boss. He is initially reluctant, but soon takes advantage of the situation for his own career advancement.

The film then revolves around the many consequences of their actions, how Margaret Tate is forced to follow her faux fiancĂ© back to his hometown of Sitka, Alaska, slowly realizes her actions after meeting Andrew Paxton’s family and how inevitably, they end up falling in love.

What we liked…
The on-screen chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock is definitely one of the better partnerships in recent times. Not to mention the fact that The Proposal represents Sandra Bullock’s first number 1 movie in 10 years and marked her biggest opening weekend. Not bad for a simple romantic comedy.

The humorous sequences are portrayed remarkably well by Reynold’s signature comical expressions and Bullock’s sophisticated yet funny mannerisms. And you do also get a glimpse of Ryan Reynold’s and Sandra Bullock’s “physiques” in very funny fashion.

The way the 2 lead characters’ relationships develop throughout the show is also portrayed well and is one that can definitely be related to.

What we didn’t like too much…
The romantic element of the film, although existent, was just slightly insufficient to create that sense of “falling in love” for us. In a way, it felt more like a “comedy that was romantic”, than a “romantic comedy”.

Apart from that, there really isn’t much that you can fault the movie for.

So…
If “What Happens in Vegas” is your cup of tea, then The Proposal will most definitely be one as well. It may not be as emotionally involving as say “P.S I love you”, but it is still more than worth watching.

So don’t miss out on it, and in case you do, be sure to get a DVD.

Our rating.
7/10
