Tragic Loss

Dear friends,

I would like to take this opportunity to share my sorrows for the loss of two wonderful footprints in my life that has left this world, for a better world up there. Both babies were given proper burial, and what's left is in our wonderful memories they've given to us. I shall pray everyday and especially during Christmas.

This is Micco.
Born: 2 February 2004
Back then I didn't have much money. Since young I don't practice taking allowances from parents, unless they voluntarily gave. Most of my savings came from 'Ang Pows', part-time jobs, being an agent, and what not.
The very moment I laid eyes on Micco, I just knew he was coming home with me. Without thinking, I withdrew all my previous savings for this little puppy. Micco came home with me on the 5th April.
Yes... he is my baby. Enough said. Those who knows Micco, knows he was in good hands.

Approximately 6 months later, Micco left this world - 24th September 2004. I thought to myself was it too short a time, or too long that I grieved? With as little as 6 months of holding Micco just about everywhere I go (and I really mean everywhere including the movies), felt like I had him for as long as I could. Or should I say, I only had him for 6 months and he's gone?!

Tragedy : One morning after shower, Micco wasn't wearing his collar (attached with 2 bells). I had him with me til the door, kissed his head, told my maid to bring him to his play room upstairs. So I left for class.
She disobeyed, put the dog behind the main door unlatched, watering the plants outside. Micco pushed his way out the unlatched main door, walked straight out the porch unnoticed, a car went by...

In the hospital : When I saw him in the hospital he didn't look too bad. Not until the doctor showed me the X-Ray, I couldn't breathe. Physically he had no wounds, but internally, his bones were shattered. I tapped close to his eyes, he did not blink. The veterinarian pumping air into Mic's lungs, nurse injecting painkiller every 10 minutes or so. Doctor asked me to talk to him.
I called out gently, "Micco...mummy is here baby...Micco...".
He woke up... I tapped his nose and he blinked. But it was too painful to see him injected almost every minute. He couldn't cry. It was painful.

Tragic Loss : Doctor's advice was to let him sleep peacefully... I don't want to say more.


This is Missy. Present to me as my birthday gift last year, 21st December 2005 by my darling - Dil.

Missy is a tame Cockatail. She's very friendly and requires a lot of attention. She loves mirrors and often talks to her own reflection. At times strutts her stuff (not knowingly) to herself.

Every dawn, she'd sing until she gets her attention. Makes sure I'm awake on the right time of the day. Missy would go shopping with me in One Utama, standing gracefully on my shoulder. She's a head turner. No one seems to be looking at me! Her wings were trimmed for safety and landing purpose. Since she is a domestic breed, she is not trained to be in the wild. All my pets at home are friends of one another. Even my cat does not harm Missy.

Tragedy : I have a tendency of bringing my beloved animals out wherever I go. One fine day, Missy was out with me to a mamak. While walking towards the mamak, one man turned on the grasscutter machine which frightened Missy. She flew helplessly towards a nearby house and little did she know, it was a dog breeder's home. Where she landed... was a kennel to 5 dogs. There was nothing I could do but called out the owner of the house frantically.
What happened was so sudden that I did not know how to react. The owner retrieved Missy laying motionless on his palm.
A hole punctured right to her lungs. She wasn't breathing.

Picture Knowledge

I think the photo speaks for itself...... No?

How do you like my Mini Zoo at home?
Allow me to introduce my canines and feline~

First photo : Keiro (Maltese) & Precious (Cross Burmese). Both of them are the dominators of the house. I think they are confused that they are meant to hate each other. 'House of Harmony' I call it.
Second photo (Clockwise): Here's Keiro again, with our new tomodachi, Lil' J-Mie (Siberian Husky) and Duchess (Two-colored eyes - blue&green), whom I adopted from someone over Friendster posts. Here we have Duchess drinking water without disturbance of the two canines.

Third photo : Lil' J-Mie shares her drink with Duchess.

Image for Dummies~

Bubbles wallpaper? Hardly. It's just a photo secured from a Nokia N73 off a car's windscreen one December day. Amazing how drizzles of rain-droplets gradually merging into giant droplets on a screen can create an image of serenity.

We've been tricked. Maybe just me. I always thought this sort of image was bubbles floating helplessly to the surface for freedom in a transparent glass of water. My latest discovery is the simplicity of nature's beauty. It ain't camera tricks. I did nothing but snap my windscreen close enough to see the droplets this clearly. It makes an amazing wallpaper!

*Please note that the car's windscreen has a coat of Rain-X that functions as a rain shield.

A gift to myself

~I'm...dreaming of a whi...te Christmas~~~
Sorry folks! I kicked start my Christmas this year in advance with a gift to myself...
I've always had my eyes on Siberian Huskies. I always thought I had a lot of experience in caring for puppies and knew enough about puppies...But this lil sweetheart is unlike others. She's independent, not needy at all, extremely cool, moody, and again cool! What I mean by cool is that, she doesn't react to other pets, really doesn't show the need to be pampered, infact, she gives you this don't-bother-me-I'm-in-my-own-world attitude which I think is "cool". Well... good and bad news for me. It made me wonder for 3 days.

Silly... Did you even bother to check on WOLVES for a sec there? -.-
Right... This baby is a wolf and half a dog. Don't know how that happened. I think the species 'wolf' itself portrays a symbol of 'coolness'? Does it not?

Honestly, I haven't heard my puppy bark. All she does is sleep, bite, stare(maybe she's not staring... you can't tell from far! >.<), ignores, get's hungry, gets moody when it's warm, doesn't like beds =/ prefer marble floors, and definitely in her own world. A tough one... I'm doomed. HOWEVER, I'm proud of my Lil' J-Mie... although my dream is yet to be true! Not until Lil' J-Mie is a big girl, she'd be my on-ground *Saphira.
*From the movie - Eragon.
