Welcome to the world

Their eyes opened today. It has has become a tradition that I whisper “welcome to the world” into their tiny ears. I like to think that they recognize me when I do that. These two are special because I felt them in their mommy’s stomach before they were born. Just too precious….

Something About November

The famous band Guns N’ Roses have a song entitled November Rain and every year, we have a lot of rainfall in Malaysia during November. Whenever it rains during this month, the song comes to mind.

For me personally, the November month serves as a reminder that we are getting closer to Christmas which is always joyful. For the past few years, it has been a yearly tradition here at Tru-Luv Rabbitry that we capture photos of rabbits in the Christmas theme. We are quite fortunate to have babies around this time and I can relate rabbits with Christmas more than Easter.

By now, most malls have started putting up their Christmas decorations and when December comes, there will be full swing shopping.

I am sure for those who celebrate Christmas, they can relate to Christina Perri’s beautiful song entitled “Something About December”. So to get you into the mood, here is the amazing song for your enjoyment:

And as we gear up for the festive season, here’s a couple of photos of cute bunnies. These are the first otter variety Holland Lops born at Tru-Luv Rabbitry and they are cute as buttons…

The 49th ARBA Breed

Last year, I was very lucky to witness the Lionhead breed being officially recognized as the 48th ARBA Breed and during the same time, the Argente Brun passed one of its presentations.

This year, we saw that the Argente Brun being passed and recognized as the 49th ARBA Breed.

I have a liking for the rich chocolate color in rabbits and that is how the Argente Brun first caught my attention. The Argente Brun is a variation of the Champagne D’Argent and Creme D’Argent which have a very rich chocolate undercoat.

Another wonderful thing is that, I have known Charmaine a few years now and she is the COD (Certificate of Development) holder for the Argente Brun breed. Charmaine is the person responsible of presenting the breed and getting it passed. I had the privilege to meet her in person last year and to see, touch and feel one of her Argente Brun rabbits were breathtaking. They are phenomenal and you can see how much effort has been put into the breed.

Congratulations to Charmaine for her success!

Destiny

I really have to acknowledge the fact that it is no longer a coincidental that rabbits are a part of my life. In many occasions, I have written about how rabbits seemed to appear wherever I go and below are the links to these entries:

  1. Seoul Searching
  2. Rabbit & Life’s Directions
  3. Changing For The Better
  4. Bunnies, wherever I go
  5. Its A Sign!

It didn’t stop there and since then, there has been many surprise meetings with various bunnies.

Just last week, as I was strolling down between 51st and 52nd Streets in Manhattan, I bumped into The Hare On The Bell sculpture. This sculpture is part of the AXA Center building. Through some research, I found out that this sculpture was done by Barry Flanagan – a Welsh Sculptor in 1983. Though I have yet to find out what the sculpture symbolizes, its presence gave me a very profound feeling to a point that I was actually dumbfounded and tickled all at the same time.

I have not heard of this sculpture prior to this and I learned something after stumbling upon it.

So life’s adventure continues for me and what a wonderful year it has been for me personally. Seemed like the illusive white rabbit is taking me places and deeper into the rabbit hole/burrow.

I sometimes wonder if Alice was a boy, what would Lewis Carroll call him instead. Not Tim, surely? I believe Neo might be the closest option.

Like the Matrix movie, perhaps one will be asked the question, “Blue or Red pill?”

Whatever it is, this rabbit hole has brought me through many amazing experiences…

Through Medieval times…
