FOR a beast named for Beauty, she was frustratingly coy about her close-ups with the camera.

The faintest rattle of the enclosure door would send her voracious fellow cub Kai Kai - birthname Wu Jie, meaning "kung fu expert" - gamboling enthusiastically into his indoor pen at the mere prospect of an apple or special panda "cake". Just like a certain famous food-loving cartoon panda.

Not so the elusive Jia Jia. Never mind that we had travelled thousands of miles hoping to make her acquaintance ahead of our fellow Singaporeans (who will get the chance when the pair arrive on these shores sometime next year) - the shy three-year-old, on hearing our approach, scooted up her favourite tree with amazing dexterity for her 92kg bulk and refused to be lured from her leafy retreat, even with food.

"She is a little more timid," admitted keeper Gao Qiang in Mandarin. "If there are loud noises or too many people, she will climb a tree to avoid the perceived danger."

Our first encounter with the two panda cubs at the sprawling Ya'an Bifengxia Panda Base, a two-hour drive from Chengdu City in the Szechuan province of China, warned us that, though they might look similarly cute and furry, they were two contrasting personalities.

Set in gorgeous mountain terrain beside the spectacular Bifengxia gorge, the base is a forest haven ringing with birdsong, murmuring streams and cricket chirps - the perfect Eden for some 80 giant pandas and 170 staff who are fighting to ensure a future for the endangered species.

It is hard to imagine that these two black-and-white furry giants were once upon a time pink, blind, toothless, and hardly weighed more than an apple. Many newborn pandas don't survive this vulnerable state.

"Many panda mothers may not know how to care for the babies ... she may reject them, neglect them or accidentally crush them," said Mr Gao. The infants are partly hand-reared and monitored with eagle-eyes, all the more given the notoriously low mating and conception rate among Giant Pandas.

All that conservation research and effort costs money, and in large part, is funded via the panda loan programme - zoos across the world have paid about US$1 million (S$1.24 million) a year to host pandas over a 10-year period.

And next year, it will be Kai Kai and Jia Jia's turn to be the programme's, and China's, ambassadors to Singapore.

READYING THEM FOR LIFE IN SINGAPORE

The Republic is only the seventh country to receive pandas from China, under a collaboration between Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) and the China Wildlife Conservation Association.

Since last year, there have been several exchanges between WRS and the Ya'an base to prepare the Singapore team for the pandas' arrival - and the pandas for life in the Lion City.

For instance, River Safari curator Ang Cheng Chye and Wildlife Reserves Singapore vet Serena Oh brought along a species of homegrown bamboo for Kai Kai and Jia Jia to sample, during one of their three visits to the base.

But it was "too thin, like toothpicks" for the cubs' liking, said Dr Oh. Not to worry - China research centre director Zhang Guiquan is confident they will get used to Singapore bamboo "based on previous experience", referring to the 100-day loan of two pandas to the Republic in 1990.

Besides dieticians, Singapore keepers may also have to play exercise trainers. Specifically, for Kai Kai's sake.

Said Mr Ang: "The most interesting thing we learnt from Ya'an is their exercise regime to get the mature male panda to do squats." This the keepers do by raising and lowering his food repeatedly. "This is supposed to strengthen their legs so that they can extend the mating session."

Successfully breeding pandas outside of China is notoriously tricky, but if the Singapore team gets all the conditions just right, who knows?

Giant pandas reach breeding maturity between four and eight years of age. And, at the special 1,500-square-metre giant panda enclosure being built at the River Safari, the two growing cubs will get the run of a lush green outdoor area, as well as an indoor pen kept at a temperate 18 to 22 degrees-Celsius - a critical temperature difference for triggering the necessary hormonal changes that make a female fertile.

"If we can do the temperature changes correctly, we can trigger fertility," said Mr Ang, "This is an area of great interest because it is the first time we are trying to breed pandas in a tropical climate."



A LIFE SPENT EATING

For now, pandas being territorial, the two cubs are being kept in separate pens (each almost as big as a football field, with a lush outdoor area, pool or climbing platform) until it's time to mate. And the Ya'an staff are keeping a close eye on the well-being of their two Singapore-bound envoys.

Both cubs are weighed every ten days and, three times a month, keepers collect and weigh their excrement to monitor digestion.

According to keeper Mr Gao, Jia Jia and Kai Kai both have healthy appetites and consume about 10kg of bamboo a day. What is weird and unique about pandas is that they have a carnivorous digestive system, yet have adapted an almost exclusive diet of bamboo. It means they spend as much as two-thirds of the day eating - they don't easily digest plant cellulose - and in the wild, might pop the occasional small mammal or egg.

At Ya'an, the cubs' diet is supplemented with carrots, apples and a special 'cake' of corn, wheat, fruit and vegetables. The last, Kai Kai's favourite snack, brings the adolescent cub running even when he is making ravenous progress through a large clump of bamboo. This made him an easy photographic subject.

Hand-fed from birth, he accepted his carrot sticks and apple slices very gently in his sharp teeth and tongue - or reached out large claw-tipped paws to grab cake which, like a greedy child, he stuffed into his mouth and chewed with open-mouthed enjoyment.

Such uncouth manners were beyond Jia Jia's delicate sensibilities. Time and again, we would leave food for her only to find it sneakily devoured while we were out of sight, and her napping again in her tree-top throne.

By the third and last day of our stay, we were so desperate for a clear shot that we were out early. As Kai Kai roamed in restless circles, calling for breakfast in puppy-like yelps and barks, the keepers yelled for Jia Jia.

And then - with a quiet snuffle, she entered her indoor pen.

Unlike her overeager future mate, she sniffed delicately at the proffered panda cake before taking it daintily.

As the camera clicked, the cheeky furball decided to reward us for our patience: She splashed herself with water from her drinking tap, lay on her back and scratched, then tumbled head over heels like a gymnast.

Back outside, she dragged out a thick stem of bamboo, fixed her gaze on the camera, and broke the bamboo in half with one resounding crunch of her jaws.

ACTRESS and singer Jesseca Liu firmly believes that what old folk need most is not money but "somebody to talk to and care for them".

Malaysia-born Liu, 32, spoke to my paper yesterday at a media event for SMRT at the Asian Women's Welfare Association (Awwa) Community Home for Senior Citizens.

She was responding to questions about Warmth, her recently recorded duet with Singaporean actress and singer Olivia Ong.

The Chinese piano ballad was written by veteran producer Chen Jia Ming and composed by singer-songwriter Dick Lee.

Commissioned by SMRT for its Silver Tribute Charity, it was released for radio airplay last week.

Liu is no newcomer when it comes to helping the elderly.

"There is an old folk's home in my hometown of Kedah and, in the past, I would gather with a few of my friends every New Year's Day and go down to cook a meal for them," she said.

Liu said she and her friends wanted to let the elderly feel that they had someone there with them on New Year's Day.

The HIM International artist said she felt the song was "very positive and bright".

Liu said: "I'm hoping that the song will influence people to donate money (to the Silver Tribute Charity), in addition to spreading the message."

Warmth will be the theme song for SMRT's fund-raising show, the Silver Tribute Charity Night, on June 5.

The proceeds will benefit voluntary welfare organisations catering to the needy elderly, which include the Tan Tock Seng Hospital Community Fund and the Awwa Community Home for Senior Citizens.

Ms Elaine Koh, chairman of the SMRT Silver Tribute Fund, said the song aims to "rally the community to go through life's ups and downs together, in both good times and bad; lending strength and support to one another".

For Liu, the media event also doubled as a chance to connect with the elderly at the Awwa.

"I've already promised to visit the old folk again when given the chance and time to," she said.

"I hope that, from now on, there will be more opportunities for me to help out," she added.

ITEMS like Botox and gyroscopes may be seen as necessities in industries such as aesthetics and manufacturing.

But in the eyes of would-be terrorists, they are seen as key components which could be used to illicitly develop weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

For example, a chemical called triethanolamine - widely used in cosmetics and shampoo - as well as botulinum toxins (better known by their trade name, Botox) could be misused to produce chemical-warfare agents.

MY PAPER WEDNESDAY MAY 25, 2011, PAGE A1 & A3, HOME


These, along with a slew of seemingly harmless "dual-use" products, are categorised as "strategic goods".

This was shared at the 12th International Export Control Conference, held in Singapore for the first time yesterday morning, where 320 delegates from 77 countries met to exchange pointers on countering the proliferation of WMD.

Singapore is co-hosting the event with the United States and the European Union.

http://www.asiaone.com/A1MEDIA/news/05May11/images/20110525.110209_wmd.jpg


Export-control officials highlighted that the misuse of global trade to proliferate WMD is among the gravest threats to global security and regional stability.

Mr Vann Van Diepen, Acting Assistant Secretary of State at the US State Department, said that proliferators of WMD are adapting their methods to get their dangerous cargo to their destinations.

These include using circuitous shipping routes, falsifying shipping documents and using front companies, cut-outs and brokers.

For instance, the Thai authorities interdicted an aircraft from Pyongyang that landed in Bangkok to refuel in December 2009. It was carrying 35 tonnes of conventional weapons, including rockets, rocket-propelled grenades and shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles.

The cargo was falsely claimed to be "mechanical parts". A number of flight plans in both directions was also filed to cover the tracks of the proliferators, said Mr Van Diepen.

In another instance in August 2009, he shared, the United Arab Emirates seized military equipment falsely described on shipping documents as oil-machinery spare parts.

The cargo was Customs-sealed and loaded onto a North Korean ship in North Korea, and was trans-shipped several times en route to its declared destination of Iran.

This is why countries must also adapt their approaches to stop proliferation, Mr Van Diepan added.

"Our responsibility extends beyond simply monitoring our own exports; we must also deal with the flow of sensitive goods that are imported and re-exported, and that are in transit or trans-shipment," he said.

With Asia in the middle of trade routes between Iran and North Korea - countries known to be proliferators - it is important that Asian countries must help detect, deter and dismantle proliferation schemes, said Mr Van Diepen.

"Because of geography, Asia and South-east Asia, in particular, are places that proliferators traditionally exploit to do their business. If you're going to ship technology from North Korea to Iran, you've basically got to go through this region," he said.

"That's why it's very important for Singapore, and now Malaysia, to put in place comprehensive strategic direct-control systems."

In Singapore, a Strategic Goods Control permit is needed if one is exporting, trans-shipping or bringing in transit any goods or technology listed under the Strategic Goods Control Act. The Act has been in effect since January 2003.

"Singapore takes the proliferation of WMD, their means of delivery and related items very seriously," said Mr Fong Yong Kian, director-general of the Singapore Customs.

The government agency holds regular outreach programmes for the business community here to keep them abreast of export-control laws, he added.

Last year, more than $1.8 billion worth of strategic goods were exported from Singapore. The Singapore Customs received and processed more than 17,700 strategic-goods permit applications.

Malaysia's Strategic Goods Act will come into effect in July, making it the second country in the region to adopt comprehensive strategic-trade-control legislation.

The Philippines is in the process of reviewing draft strategic-trade legislation. Cambodia has adopted a law related to the non-proliferation of nuclear, bio- chemical and radioactive weapons, while Thailand and Vietnam are working on efforts to adopt national control lists.

The conference, held at the Raffles City Convention Centre, will end tomorrow.
