Jia Jia & Kai Kai also have KPIs

Jia Jia and Kai Kai like all pandas have baby names. Now that they are in Singapore, they also have KPIs - to make babies. This came from Teo Ser Luck and I am sure it was spoken tongue in cheek. Nevertheless it was a tad insensitive wasn't it? KPIs are supposed to be servants but they had been elevated to lords and we resent it.

Babies don't make babies. These two pandas are going to be treated like babies beginning with their names.

Unhappy people do not make babies. Make them happy, but as we all know you can't command happiness but you can make it happen with mature love.

Stop treating the pandas like babies like they aren't in the wild. You will get babies. Stop treating us like babies. I think the government is appearing to do so these days but they still have that bad attitude which sometimes slips out. Foxhole paternalists they are. And when we refused to listen, they lament that we are spoilt.

I pin my hopes on our young. They are far more world wise and informed than their parents whose ignorance when unhappy will react by complaining coming across as spoilt. Now if Jia Jia and Kai Kai act spoilt, you know it is a leading indicator no babies are coming.

How does one love a panda? I think we can pick up a few tips from Aslan in CS Lewis' Narnia. Aslan never baby anyone.
