Bully

It was a slightly busy Sunday Morning. As usual, I spent my great time with Cerok Tokun and she has taken up three and a half hours of my morning. She made me feeling exhausted but fresh. Isn't it funny? Tired and fresh are possible to come together. Then, I went for blood donation that was arranged by the nearby Buddhist Association. This is my number sixteenth donation since 1993.

Blood donation is good. It helps to speed up my metabolism, and it helps others at the same time. To be good to others is what I have been taught since young. Anyhow, this might not be right for all the times either in our civilizations or in the animal kingdom.

The first picture has well described what was happening when I was on my way to take my car. This monkey surely behaved like a human, or the other way else.

Its big round eyes showed how desperate it was. It dived forward and managed to snatch something from the innocent little. If you observe long enough, or you can enlarge the picture for a clearer view, the arrogant one was actually holding the metal pipe for a firm support.

We may say, "Uh! What a monkey." Yet we are actually looking at our reflection in the mirror.

"To be good to others"-I hope this doesn't include being 'nice'? I have a reason for asking this..well, it's another story.

Considering the missing link of Darwinism theory is found (Ida), I'm happy to say that the photos are indeed my brothers and sisters..lol When I was little, they did the same to me and now that I'm all grown up, I do that to my little nieces and nephews..lol I'm bad eh? Couldn't help it, it's in the 'family blood' you see...

Btw, could I possibly 'steal' one of your photos, in which the credit goes to you ofcourse..with your permission?

These monkeys seem so naughty. Doing so many naughty things in the images.

Dad used to keep a lot of Rhesus monkeys in the apartment we used to live in. The monkeys scratched me real bad and I had a sense of awe towards these creatures

I used to think that bullying is only for kids until last year, when I experienced first hand as my neighbor did this to me!

The second photo describes bullying so well!

Kirigalpoththa::: I shall spend some times to explore wonder from your blog.

Megaa_V::: Indirectly, you have hinted I am a monkey too. HaHa...
Just go ahead to use my photo, they are FOC.

roentarre::: Then, I'll repeat what Magaa_V has said, according to Darwinism theory ......

Icy BC::: There are many types of bully. Road bully is one of them.

i hope the bully did not get what he wanted. i actually am always awed observing the monkeys, i guess because i consider them as our relatives or our reflection as how you put it.

I guess we have many things in common with monkeys. We sometimes call someone a monkey when we mean they are a fool. I wonder if monkeys call other monkeys humans when they mean they are a fool.

Monkeys can be pesky..especially those aggresive ones. You go hiking every weekend?

rainfield61 said...

betchai::: It is fun to know that the monkeys are your relatives.

Ratty::: When we look at them, they are looking at us too. When we talk about them, they must do the same to us as well.

Mei Teng::: Yes. I hike on every weekend. I am thinking of participating the year end Penang Bridge Run on the half marathon category. Wanna join???

Mei Teng said...

Me join a marathon? No way..haha. Go for the bridge run!
