Poetry: Melancholy of Dreams

October 23, 2014 § Leave a comment

I dream of a purple horizon,
Where nostalgia torments the aching heart
and sad memories enkindle heartfelt tears.

How unfortunate to be alone in the world
To lament the solitary curse.

I dream of a trip down memory lane
To recall a place of feelings
And rediscover a splendid love.

Sometimes I wish they were just dreams,
So the pain and happiness of lost love
could be buried in the hollow soul.

My love,
Will I meet you again in the next life
Or will this be our eternal parting?

Bizarre Korea – Man’s Best Meal

October 16, 2014 § Leave a comment

If you thought dog-fighting is cruel, here’s something that will definitely make you cringe. Eating dog’s meat is one of Korea’s most valued traditions. There are other countries that also allow dogs to be killed for their meat, but the practice is more widespread in Korea. In fact, dog’s meat (cooked or soup) is one of Korea’s national dishes. Many Koreans raise dogs, in the so-called dog farms, for the sole purpose of slaughtering them for their meat. You can actually enter a restaurant in Korea right now and order a platter of cooked dog’s meat for dinner.

Despite repeated protests from international groups, this practice continues to thrive in the Land of the Morning Calm. Several polls have found that many South Koreans would rather have their government, severing diplomatic ties with any foreign governments that oppose them slaughtering dogs for food, than to give up this deeply rooted tradition.

I wonder how Mr. Obama would react if he is offered a dish of spicy cooked dog’s meat.
