Little Critters

Hello. I'm writing this just to show that my hamsters are still alive.

Saturday night I decided to give a little freedom to my pet hamsters. I set up their fence (which you can buy at major pet shops) and let them go wildddd.


The fence is about RM125, which isn’t too expensive I think. Anyways they serve their purpose well when cleaning hamster cages and you need a place to contain the little critters (that’s a brand name is it??) and cardboard boxes do not work because they chew their way out in 5 minutes tops.


That’s Kasturi and Cholte facing off in an attempt to secure their own territory. Whatever. I don’t usually put them in a cage together, so during outings, they tend to waste their time doing unnecessary things like this.


Hamsters in hamster playpen. I had to keep a look out the whole time they were in the pen just to make sure they didn’t try something creative like climbing the fences or biting on the other hamster or even biting on my carpet =_=

This fence would be perfect for a small hamster type like roborovskis or chinese hamsters and less for syrian hamsters like mine because they’re so huge and though they don’t realize this, if they put their whole concentration on breaking through the fence, it would give way. Usually it takes them about 15 minutes to figure this out if I’m not watching.(Past experience.psshh)


Hamster food heaven. Giving them some treats in the treat box. Totally made that up. Sometimes I just feel like they should help themselves that’s all.

I’ve always loved and always will love animals (except creepy crawly roaches and the likes) but when my mix persian cat Figaro went missing a long time ago, my family was devastated and afterwards just got hesitant about keeping pets.

That’s why I wanted something small and manageable. I started keeping hamsters because I thought they would be easy to care for. Yeah, that and another tiny little fact that most people seem to miss is that they die easily. So it’s not ‘easy’ to care for hamsters. They’re delicate and sensitive and once sick, they die fairly quickly. But they’re also like little teddy bears with unique personalities which I’m sure would surprise many people in the beginning. I was.

Their fur is really dense and soft. It’s like having a squishy toy that’s alive. So I’m really happy to have gotten them. My hamsters would be almost 2 soon. Love them! Love them!!!!!!!!!

Hamsters Are Too Cute!

Final paper of Final Exam tomorrow!

Thoughts on Graduating


I’m in the middle of finals. That means I’m graduating soon! I’m just relieved that it’s finally over. But I’m ganna miss my friends and the freedom I had here. It wouldn’t be the same. Going back to living and relying financially on parents is going to be tough.

Actually I wrote another post before this one but it was just depressing talking about being nostalgic and how I will always remember the view from the window yada yada. So I deleted it because graduating from college is something big. I made it, we made it. Well, almost.

And we’re officially adults.. Though I still feel like im 18. Must be the time warp in utp.

I’m going to write more about utp before I graduate. You know those Lord of The Rings movies which took about 6 years to film. When they wrapped up filming they said, “LOTR has been a big part of our lives for the past 6 years. We bonded with each other, had fun and created something great. It’s going to be sad to leave all that behind.

Exactly how I feel. But what the heck. 5 years is long enough. Next! :)

Hold On

You can be ambitious, passionate, hopeful. But how do you ride the stormy waves threatening to bring you down? By being perseverant. A bunch of singers came up with their own versions of ‘perseverance’ but I’m personally touched by this particular song because it’s full of hope.

Song 'Hold On’ by Michael Buble, king of remakes.

My Most Unused Gadget


This is a story about how on a whim, I bought my most unused gadget of all time.

One day, my mom, two brothers and me went to KL to look for a new home pc. This is a decision we made after sometime, considering our home computer was as ancient as the dinosaur and hums like one too.

So the whole morning was dedicated to bargaining with the sales people at low yat plaza. We got a pretty good deal and a swanky looking CPU. We were happy. This was when things went wrong.

We should have went straight back home. But we didn’t, thanks to flashy shops and our inability to look ahead in a straight line.

To cut the story short, I entered a pda/pocket pc shop on the ground floor and came out with an HP Ipaq pocket pc. And it lay in my desk drawer forever more.

Btw, this was purchased 2 years ago.

Moral of the story: Go to the mall, get in, buy your things, get out. And oh, keep your eyes on the straight path ahead.
