Yeah, I know, the previous post in this blog is Peter Chen is on medical leave (click BACK button to get back to this page). However, I am happy to announce that it was nothing serious. I was just warded in the hospital for observation [low blood sodium (Natrium) level]. I am now out and hoping to clear the more urgent task (of course getting an invite to Nuffnang's Wild ‘Live’ Blogging party is URGENT, so have to make this post plus other tasks before I start approving and responding to comments in this blog. At this point in time, there are 72 comments waiting for publishing:
A thousand apologies to those waiting for their comments to be published and probably for the response too, but becoming King of the Jungle gets a slightly higher priority. But fret not. I will try my best to start working on the comments as soon as possible.
Back to Nuffnang's Wild ‘Live’ Blogging party. To get an invite, hopeful blogger have to upload a clip art. The above is a photo, not exactly clip art. So I am going to upload a clip art of a Tiger's tail? below (clip art supplied by Nuffnang itself, so there will be no grounds for disqualification):
"Clip art" of tiger's tail is property of Nuffnang, Malaysia and Singapore
OK, OK. That is a tiger's tail, not a Lion, King of the Jungle. You see, I am that very cautious type. The title of this post is "Peter Chen, King of the Jungle". According to Wikipedia, "it (lion) is the second-largest living cat after the tiger". Also, "Wild lions currently exist in sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia". So choosing a lion is perhaps not so appropriate for
Nuffnang's Wild ‘Live’ Blogging party as Nuffnang is based in Malaysia and Singapore, both tropical, not sub-Saharan. But, again according to Wikipedia, "(the tiger) is the largest of four "big cats" in the genus Panthera" and is "Native to much of eastern and southern Asia". Malaysia definitely have tigers in its jungles. Not too sure about Singapore though. Singapore, again according to Wikipedia, my favorite source of information, 'the name Singapura comes from the Sanskrit singha ("lion") and pura ("city")'. According to the Malay Annals, this name was given by a 14th century Sumatran prince named Sang Nila Utama, who, landing on the island after a thunderstorm, spotted an auspicious beast on the shore. His chief minister errorneously identified as a 'singha' or lion. However, recent studies of Singapore indicate that lions have never lived there (not even Asiatic lions), and the beast seen by Sang Nila Utama was likely a tiger, most likely the Malayan Tiger.

Now after some "careful researching", Peter Chen is going to be Samba Tigris (tiger) instead of Samba Singa (both of Panthera family), The King of the Jungle. Now, why Samba Singa, you may ask. You want to know? Be at Nuffnang's Wild ‘Live’ Blogging party. If you can't make it to the Nuffnang Wild ‘Live’ Blogging party, fret not, for I may try some 'live' blogging. I may blog 'live' while at the party itself. So bookmark (top, left sidebar'} or subscribe to this blog (somewhere in the middle of the left sidebar after the Amazon ads - 'powered by FeedBlitz'). In the meantime, I hope you will complete the survey powered by Nuffnang, the third last from the bottom of the left sidebar (at time of publishing).
