Yes, it was abandoned, neglected by us for a very long time (2011) but my appetite for writing has returned so expect more to come. As you can see we have grown into a huge group now!
I have been trying to change certain things but it seems to be going very wrong. I have been reading the dummy's guide to try and change the layout, background, and fonts but what you see now is the results of that (yes i know i failed horribly)
Time to seek professional help! In the next few weeks (hopefully) we are going to revamp and update the entire blog to 2015!!
I will begin posting tomorrow and i hope the other admins (eh hemmmmmm) will also assist to post at least one thing a week per person.
+ Me (fs)
So there is no excuse that all shall only await for me to update it!
-fs- Peace out
Happy Belated Birthday to March Babies! Prepare for the celebration that's about to come
Is there anyone still visiting this place? People of xdestination to be specific. Things have been dead for awhile now, last post was in 2011. 3 - 4 ish years laying dormant here, the chat box populated by spammers.
Years went by since the last post, we've grown or perhaps simply aged a little since. The times when we are able to haunt till wee hours are now confined to weekends if at all with small congregation, road trips are but words of thought. Longing I may for the time of past, but its the future which we are to head. How should we head it is to our own making.
May we be acquainted longer than time immemorial gone.
I leave this here for now, those who can, do infest this place with some at least once a while, we should not let this place die as what kept here are legacies of our youth, naivety and memoir of days not so long past.
They say money can't buy love - but £1million will get you man's most expensive best friend. A red Tibetan mastiff has become the priciest dog in the world after being sold for 10 million Chinese yuan, or £945,000 or US$1.5m. Big Splash, or Hong Dong in Chinese, was bought by a coal baron from the north of China . And it's lucky his new master is a multi-millionaire, because the hefty price tag doesn't factor in Big Splash's diet - enough chicken and beef to fill a growing 180lb dog, spiced up with Chinese delicacies such as sea cucumber and abalone.
Pricey pup: A Red Tibetan Mastiff called Big Splash has become the world's most expensive dog His owner will need a big house too, as adult Tibetan Mastiffs have been known to weigh as much as 286lb, or more than 20 stone - the same as a sizeable rugby player. However the typical weight for a fully grown Tibetan Mastiff is around 13 stone. But according to breeder Lu Liang, Big Splash is a 'perfect specimen' and the extravagant price for the 11-month-old is completely justified. He said: 'We have spent a lot of money raising this dog, and we have the salaries of plenty of staff to pay' - adding that the new owner could charge almost £10,000 a time for Big Splash to breed with a female. The high price paid for the dog is a sign that the red Tibetan mastiff has become a status symbol in China , replacing jewellery and cars as a way for the super-rich to show off their wealth. Not only is red considered a lucky colour, but Tibetan mastiffs are thought to be holy animals, blessing their owners' health and security. Tibetans believe the dogs have the souls of monks and nuns who were not good enough to be reincarnated as humans or into Shambhala, the heavenly realm. Owners of the breed have included Queen Victoria, King George IV and Genghis Khan - who supposedly took 30,000 of the dogs with his ar my in his bid to conquer Western Europe .
Ancient breed: The dog is a descendant of animals kept by nomadic Chinese tribes These days there are only around 300 Tibetan mastiffs in the UK , and puppies sell for a more reasonable £850 to £1,000. James Pally, a Tibetan mastiff breeder from Pantymwyn near Mold in Flintshire, North Wales , said: 'They are very smart and they think for themselves and can sense danger very acutely. 'Tibetan mastiffs were originally used to guard the livestock and they are very good with other animals and they love children. 'I have six of them and if you don't give them enough attention they sit in front of the TV.' The title of most expensive dog in the world was previously held by a Tibetan mastiff called Red Lion, who was valued at £915,000 last year.
One of the main reasons why in recent years the Malaysian Government has always ensured that their Miss Universe representatives were of tertiary level education or higher was because of the following incident which occurred not too many years ago.
It is the final round of the Miss Universe Pageant and the 3 finalists, Miss USA, Miss Malaysia and Miss Singapore were being asked 3 simple questions:
MC: The first question is name me an electrical appliance starting with 'L' Miss USA : Lamp Miss Singapore : Light bulb Miss Malaysia : LADIO Judge: No, no, Radio does not start with the letter 'L'
MC: I am going to give you 3 more chances; Now, name me an animal starting with the letter 'L' Miss USA : Lion Miss Singapore : Leopard Miss Malaysia : LABBIT Judge: No, no, no!
MC: Your next chance. The name of a famous car that starts with 'L' Miss USA : Lexus Miss Singapore : Lamborghini Miss Malaysia : Lolls-Loyce Judge: Oh my God!
MC: I am going to give you one last chance! Name me a fruit starting with the letter 'L' Miss USA : Lemon Miss Singapore : Lychee Miss Malaysia , with full of confidence, smiles and says: LIEWLIAN!!
This is not the end of the story, the Judge consulted the board of judges to determine if Miss Malaysia should really be disqualified ; and they decided that since Miss Malaysia was having so many problems with the letter 'L', they decided to give her another chance.
Judge: OK, the final question is : Name me a human anatomy starting with the letter 'L' Miss USA : Lung (applause) Miss Singapore : Liver (even more applause) Miss Malaysia : LAN CIAU ! The Judges fainted..!!! "
