Introducing Yin Yin, The Giant Panda...

"..sleep with one eye open,
gripping your pillow tight

Dear lonely isle,

I have a confession to make.
I think I need to sleep earlier.
As it is, I'm turning into a panda, and is very nearly completing my metamorphorsis.
Let's see:
  • I already have the characteristic black rings. (check)
  • Will soon adopt the cute cuddly body of a panda aka being really round and FAT. (getting there, what with being a garbage of society and all..)
  • Is picky on food. (erm, check? Though I do not limit my diet to only bamboo, and neither am I a carnivore trying to survive on a herbivore diet..)
  • Food supply is running out due to extensive logging and forestation. (possibly. I mean, maybe all the deer died out. But then again, is still able to live off poultry, beef and other domesticated animals. Except cats, dogs and various other pets that people don't usually eat.)
  • Is in heat only for 3 days a year. (most definitely, utterly, and totally NOT. Ok, maybe that's one trait I cannot copy..)
  • Does not hibernate in winter. (check. In winterless Malaysia, is able to hibernate at any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Will wake up for meals, toilet and social life though.)
  • Spend most of time looking for food, in fact, so much time that everything else is put on hold, ie; looking for a mate. (erm, I think this one is a no. Food is important, but then again, so's mating ;p )
Ok, 5 out of 7 is bad.

I need to sleep earlier. Period.

love, joyce.
