Pig, boar, babi, khinzir….all just as cute

I don’t know why some places call it the Year of the Boar. Boar as you know is the babi hutan which has dark hairs and looks black. Why can’t they just call a pig, a pig? A piglet is usually pinkish in colour like Babe In The City. It is the cutest animal ever.


But do you know pigs also got very bad reputation in the Bible as well? Jesus once drove out some demons from a man. There were six demons in that guy and Jesus said something like ‘Leave this man’. So, they heeded His command and beg Him to let them enter the body of a herd of pigs. The pigs then ran off a cliff and died. Fuwah, terror nya. Next time if you see someone rasuk hantu, all you need to do is to say to them, “In the name of Jesus, I command you to leave (person’s name).” With faith alone, we can also drive out demons.

(added Bible quotes. Hehehe, my info above not accurate wan, not cliff but lake. Not six but a legion of demons. 😛 Bible quotes from Biblegateway. )

30Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”

“Legion,” he replied, because many demons had gone into him. 31And they begged him repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss.

32A large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside. The demons begged Jesus to let them go into them, and he gave them permission. 33When the demons came out of the man, they went into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.

Anyway, the above is a card which came with a food hamper from Erina and Lawrence of Cooking Island. Thanks! I am enjoying and sampling every single one of the five cookies. Watch out for the reviews, ya? And that fruitcake, wah…the brandy so high.

This reminds me, I haven’t have the chance to record the Chinese New Year song for LinPeh. Die, die, die. Closing date tonight and I still can’t pronounce Mandarin.

Whom of you are born in the year of the Pig? The estimated range are :

8 February 1959 – 27 January 1960: Earth Pig
27 January 1971 – 14 February 1972: Metal Pig
13 February 1983 – 1 February 1984: Water Pig

(You can read the Chinese zodiac predictions on Pig here on wiki)
