The squirrel

This is the cute squirrel I mentioned in one of my earlier post...
The squirrel that almost got killed by Gerger
The cute but very frightened squirrel

Poor fella... But at least she's safe now... I hope.

I asked Mrs Tai (my wife la) which direction the squirrel headed when she had the chance to escape... Coz if she had jumped onto the neighbour on the right, she's a definite goner. They have 2 very fierce looking dogs! Mrs Tai said the squirrel went out through the gate and away...

Oh ya... The photo was taken by Mrs Tai.

I got myself a sore arm...

See I got myself a Wii...

If you have not been exercising, resist the temptation of playing too long on Wii (even a few hours is too long).

She died in my hands...

Another one of my pet hamster just died. :(

Like my car, the hamsters are also out on a record run of some sort... 3 hamsters in 3 months. Terter died in November. Terter's death marked the end of the first generation. We (my wife and I) had bought them back in 2005.

Black died last month. She was the one of the three that I consider as 2nd generation. In fact, Black, Chip and Popeye are the first batch of baby hamsters that was the result of Hamham and Terter.

I guess Terter lived long as a hamster. Her babies are getting old and dying. I have noticed that Chip and Popeye are getting weaker. They hardly play the wheel now and Chip can't really walk properly now.

The hamster that died last night had no name. My wife and I decided that she and two other siblings of hers would not be given names. We would just call them the three as they used to play, sleep and eat together. A few months back, we had to separate one of them as the other two were bullying and attacking that one.

The two continued to live and play together... Until last night.

I saw her lying motionless as I went about feeding them. I saw her lying motionless and quickly picked her up. Her sibling was just lying next to her. Her body was cold and she was not moving but she was still breathing. I tried to warm her and feed her some water. She refused the water. Her eyes slowly opened up a bit and she looked at me.

I have never really been able to hold the three of them as they have never liked being held. Each time I have them in my hands, they would move about and try to escape. This time, she is just lying there and looking back at me. It just feels different. It feels weird. I can tell it is just not her to be lying still... :~(

There was nothing much I could do... I could only keep her warm with some tissue and with my two hands... She was twitching every now and then... Then about 10 minutes later, she stopped breathing...

I never expected her to go so soon... After all, she is one of the last generation of hamsters. She was just barely 1 year old. I had planned to take the three of them and Lengchai (I doubt the other Chip and Popeye can last another 7 more months) to my new home in Setia Alam.

Ya, it is fun to have pets... But it is never fun when it is time to say goodbye...

Oh No! I'm so sorry for you. Yeah, I know how it feels when you lose a pet. That's why I'm thinking seriously whether to have a dog in the future or not. Cos the pain of losing it when it dies is too much to bear sometimes.

A weird job interview

He told me he’s a very open person. He don’t believe in having office mask and a personal mask. The interviewer says that he likes to keep things casual and just as an example of what he means by ‘open’, he gave this example – “It’s like when we go to the toilet. You look at my thing, I look at your thing, it’s nothing.”

Read more about it here... Yup, slowly moving everything to http://www.adriantai.com/

4 times in 4 months

My car is going for some sort of record... Seems 3 is not enough.

I have made it to 4!

Got my car back today. At least with this workshop (we shall call Workshop A), I can trust their work. I was not too happy with the last workshop (we shall call Workshop B) but I had not much of a choice since I thought logically, best to call the nearest workshop if your car can't start. Speaking of this, I got a 'lecture' from my friend in Workshop A - he said no issue towing the car to their workshop even if its quite far -- at least I can be assured of the workmanship. True... So, lesson to learn for me.

Anyway, Workshop B did fix my car during visit 3 to the workshop. But after replacing the circuit board, they messed up my dashboard meter. When I asked what happened since my meter, etc was working fine before that, they just remarked "Aiyah, Proton car... Expected la."

I'm just glad I got my car back and its looking and feeling good. I was getting a bit worried coz just last Wednesday, the car suddenly died in the middle of the road, at a junction. For 5 minutes I was stuck there with people waiting for me to get my car (and my butt) off the junction.

Damage this time? Close to rm700. :(
