Elephants are my favorite animals and dogs come in second so when I saw this video my heart just went pitter patter.

Animals are worth fighting for.

Wow, this video really makes me think twice about purchasing wool.

Warning: graphic images.

If you eat chicken or turkey you are supporting the suffering you see here. Plain and simple.

“I spoke with the people from PETA, and they showed me some materials that convinced me not to use fur.” Giorgio Armani made this statement last year and broke his promise.

The undercover investigations of rabbit fur farms in China and France—two countries from which Armani buys rabbit fur—revealed pitiful living conditions for rabbits, who are confined to tiny wire cages before they are slaughtered.
In the video footage from the investigation, workers at the Chinese farm pull rabbits out of cages by their ears and shoot the screaming animals in the head with a handheld electrical device, often multiple times. Rabbits with slit throats can be seen twitching and shaking, with their eyes wide open, before they die. PETA

There’s nothing sexy about fur. It’s the skin of a dead animal that would probably still be alive but is now dead and their skin is on someone’s back. Gross. When I see see someone wearing fur all I see is a cold hearted BITCH.

Tonight is the 3rd Presidential Debate and I can’t wait to watch it. In celebration I wanted to kick off Hayden Panettiere’s political/vote video. I fell in love with Hayden ever since I seen her on the Ellen Degeneres Show or was it Oprah? Anyhow, they showed a video of her trying to save dolphins in Japan. She’s also super adorable in Hero’s. How can you not love her.

Go Obama!

Every once in a while Ray and I like to do these things where we give something up for a certain amount of time. In Hawaii Ray gave up meat for something like 8 months. Sometimes I give up things like chocolate, meat, fast food, etc. Meat has never been hard for me to give up because when I actually think about what I’m eating, a dead, roting, carcass, I lose my appetite. So recently, Ray and I gave up meat again, before we moved to New York but then we decide to start eating meat again because eating is part of the New York experience. After an unimpressive street food experience, and reading the book Skinny Bitch, I just decided that meat just wasn’t my thing so why fight it. I talk to my little sister, Selena, pretty regularly and after speaking to her of my decision she decides to send me this horrific tape of what really goes down inside factory farms. I’m sure everyone has some kind of understanding of the treatment forced upon factory farm animals, but sometimes ignorance is bliss and what we all pretend not to know won’t hurt us, just the poor, helpless animals. I admit I was one of these people. Sure I read books and seen fliers but that only effected me temporarily. After all, they are going to be turned into food which means they all will eventually be killed, so there is irony in fair and humane treatment when it comes to factory farm animals. I’m super sensitive, a common trait among the Chung’s, so I cried and cried after the video. And when I finished watching it I had a sick, empty feeling at the bottom of my gut so I cried some more. How could anyone eat meat after watching that. So I’ve decided this time not only am I going to give up meat, but I’m giving up dairy and seafood as well and I’m giving it up for life. What better time to do it too, because is just so happens that October is Vegetarian Awareness Month.

Factory animal farms are violent and inhumane and I refuse to support them. I feel really empowered by this life changing decision. But please don’t ask me to give up my new boots, I’ll give you anything, just let me keep the boots.

I was told this mission was to stay classified but lets just say operation double dog gone is achieved, mission complete, I repeat, mission complete.

Our friend Jen, is a dolphin trainer for Dolphin Quest at Kahala Hotel. One of the perks of that is getting to swim with dolphins for free. I’ve been hoping and trying to have her get us in before we move. Since we were nonpaying customers I knew we took the back seat to other paying customers like Dave Mathews, who had just checked out of his room earlier this day. Anyhow, Jen calls me one day and was like, “hey, if you want to swim with the dolphins come in at 2:45. Fuck yeah, it’s not like I have to work or anything.

I almost cried when I first got into the water. I’ve seen dolphins a million and one times but I never actually got a chance to even touch one and here I am swimming with them. Super cool.

How cute is he. All the dolphins that live here are males and apparently they have sex with each other. I think I love him.
