+1 to ACRES, an organisation I was involved with for a couple of years on my last stint in-country (i.e. SG).

You can see a list of shops who have signed up to the scheme here:

I don't think my TCM doctor gave me medicine of bear bile. What I got is only herbs.

It's really great to know that actions have been taken here in SG. :)

Yes, they are good and well meaning people, and they do make a difference. I was involved mostly in activism against that huge new aquarium on Sentosa bringing in a whale shark.

p.s. The Malay tagline? No, but it is something 'in the family'. As is the photographer and film-maker. I just think they are all very talented, kinda like a high-end Paul Smith twist on trad Malay outfits (Yah, no sequins, beads or dayglo nylon in sight! :))

I wish more can be done. I wish I can do much much more than just sharing about their plights.

Although February 2012 has been a time very much agains bear farming, and I hope that bear farming will really come to an end, there is still a need to thumb down and extinguish any little possibility of bear farming to start again.

In China, one can see that anything stamped down, will be tried again by the cruel business men. Take for instance, the melamine mixed in pets food. It was a huge issue in 2007. Yet in 2011 and 2012, there were cases of them starting it again.

To stop any possibility of their evilness to revive, it is necessary that everyone who cares, keep an eye on them forever!!!

Why do you keep dredging up old threads. It's been discussed and has died a natural death. What is your schtick........
