Day Ten! I’m a third of the way in, and feeling great! This week I’m planning to take a trip to Thomas Dux for some yummy treats, I’m going to be cooking an ethical dinner for the family, and I’ll be interviewing a dear friend about her new found vegetarianism!
I took this photograph at work yesterday. The gentleman in the photograph was playing a game of ‘monkey see monkey do’ (pardon the terrible pun) with one of our orangutans, where he would make a face, and the orang would copy him. People began to crowd around the pair, with parents holding their children up to the glass so that they could watch, wide eyed and giggling at the display.
There are many arguments against keeping animals in captivity and subjecting them to human observation, and in the case of private zoos that are opened for the sole purpose of capitalism and entertainment, I would not hesitate to agree. However, I think that organisations such as the Melbourne Zoo are extremely important in allowing people to see and interact with the animals that they, as a conservation organisation are trying to save. It is these experiences and memories that will resonate, and will hopefully have a profound affect on whether or not people will choose to alter their habits, andtake on these important campaigns, such as Don’t Palm Us Off, and also to hopefully pass this awareness onto their children.
Breakfast: Peanut Butter Toast. I hate to say it, but this is starting to get a little repetitive, I think I’m going to have to pick up another spread on my Thomas Dux adventure.
Lunch: Toasted Cheese Sandwiches. A simple classic meal, one of my favourites.
Dinner: I went to Kyle’s house for dinner, and his mum cooked us a lovely pasta with fresh tomato sauce! Yum!
Dessert: What was even sweeter this dessert was the gesture that accompanied it; you may have read in an earlier post my lamentation about not being able to eat my love’s Jelly Slice. Well, not only did he serve some up for me, he had also separated the base from the other two layers, just so I could have some. And it was delicious. A master of desserts, and consideration to boot. What a man, huh?
