Valentine’s Day is around the corner and love is in the air. That certainly appears to be the case for this female cape penguin who lives at Matsue Vogel Park in Japan.
Matsue Vogel Park is one of the Largest indoor garden in the world and is situated in Matsue-shi, Shimane prefecture. It is an aviary park which houses a number of tropical birds such as toucans, turacos, hornbills and ibises. There are also a number of aquatic birds such as emus and, you guessed it, penguins.
This particular penguin is named Sakura-Chan and from the looks of it, she seems absolutely smitten by the human caretaker. At least it seems that way since she won’t allow any distance between the two.
No matter how fast the caretaker runs, Sakura-Chan is right on his heels. Forget having a human Valentine this year. This quick and adorable penguin is sure to warm your heart.
What does it mean to be there for a friend? How far would you go to help him or her out? Are there boundary lines you shouldn’t cross? These are just a few of the questions that Wong Fu Productions tries to answer in “Real Friends 2,” their hilarious new short.
According to About.com, the true qualities of friendship include honesty, attentiveness, trust, and care.
“In friendship, being accepting goes hand in hand with being loyal. A true friend rolls with the punches as you grow and change and know how to deal with your quirks and faults.They are also patient with you when you make mistakes — even big ones — and learn how to forgive you when you hurt them. In other words, they treat you as you’d like to be treated, even when you aren’t at your best.”
Are these the sort of things that Wong Fu thinks a friendship is made of? Not exactly.
The creators of Wong Fu Productions have been making shorts for about a decade now. Clearly, they know a thing or two about friendship. In this short, written and directed by Viet Nguyen, Phillip Wang acts alongside Chris Dinh and Wendy to show what happens when a heartbroken friend needs some comfort.
Be sure to check out the first of this series. “Real Friends” was published nearly a year ago. Although it has the same name, this short takes quite a different approach to define what a real friend is.
