I’m inside my bedroom when Dexter started yapping noisily at the door. There’s a man outside yelling ‘hello, hello’ but I bo-hiew-lan, thinking it’s some saleman trying to promote a Multi-Function Kitchen Knife from Japan with 20 years warranty or a Award-Winning Vacuum Cleaner from Germany which sucks everything from dust to the nastiest bug alive.
I must say that this salesman is very stubborn. Dexter had been yapping at him for at least a minute but he is still hello-ing outside, with no intention of leaving. “What a persistent fellow”, I thought, so, putting on the smelliest look on my face, I stormed out of the room to meet him.
This salesman turns out to be an official from the Ministry of Environment, who’s here to inform the residents about the rising number of dengue fever cases in our estate recently and that they will be fogging the area tomorrow and advised us to cover up all food and close the windows as the fogging can be quite poisonous.
Now I KNEW.
Nuggets was dead. DEAD as a doornail. She died a few weeks ago, two days after I came back from Bangkok. Apparently, there has been some fogging done during my absence at Bangkok but nobody was home at that time to close the windows.
After I came back, I did noticed something abnormal about her but I didn’t take it to heart. I was still wondering why isn’t she touching any of her hay at all and the next thing I knew, she was lying motionless in the cage!
She did NOT die of unknown causes. She died of poisoning. She died because of the FOGGING!
Starring: Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett-Smith, David Schwimmer
Directed by: Eric Darnell, Tom McGrath, Conrad Vernon
Release date: 27-May
This movie focuses on four residents and “stars” of the Central Park Zoo in New York City who are also best friends: a lion (Stiller), a zebra (Rock), a giraffe (Schwimmer) and a pregnant hippo (Smith). When one of them goes missing, the other three break out of the zoo looking for him, and eventually all four are captured and put in boxes to ship them back to the continent their species are originally from: Africa.
An accident at sea, however, strands them on the shore of Madagascar. Having had humans take care of them their entire life, the four know nothing of surviving in the wild, or that one of them, the lion, is genetically predisposed to eat his three best friends. Exploring their surroundings, the four friends soon meet the Malagasy locals (a type of lemur given to having loud “rave-like” dance parties) and their carnivorous enemies, the fousas.
As the two sides try to use these four new, strange (and large) friends to their benefit, our heroes are also confronted with the reality of their predestined roles in nature.
Okay, anybody wanna watch?
Mr Chua held a combined talk at the auditorium with the SC and Bridge Leaders this morning.
He invited Mr Samuel Ang to share with us about choosing our career path. He’s the very same person who came and helped us choreograph our fashion show for the Retail Hub.
On the pretext of controlling the PA system, GM and I hid in the PA Room to chitchat. We waited for the talk to finish then had our tea reception at the Roof Garden.
After the buffet, we went back to the auditorium for another talk by Mr Chua about being a student leader and how it would help mould our character in the future. When the talk ended, I went to look for Ms Tan to continue the previous day accounts but alas, she’s out for lunch again!!
Mr Yeo saw me and exclaimed, “I thought I saw you in school yesterday? Why are you back here, again???
The time was nearly 12 noon and I wouldn’t want to wait for her until 2?pm just like yesterday so I went back home and will probably come to school earlier tomorrow since I also had yet another meeting for the Philips Event.
Let’s learn a perverse nursery rhyme today.
Ding, dong, bell, <– what kinda ding dongs? *drools*
Pussy’s in the well. <– ooo.. she’s wet isnt she?
Who put her in? <– hee hee.. put it in!
Little Johnny Green. <– little?? aww come on…
Who pulled her out? <– yeah baby, pull it out~
Little Tommy Stout. <– little and stout… umnn.. ok… i prefer stout… 😀
What a naughty boy was that,
To try to drown poor pussy cat, <– oooh yes.. naughty naughty! u make the pussy wet!
Who never did him any harm,
And killed the mice in his father’s barn. <– gosh.. the pussy’s so vicious…… she DESERVES to be wet! meooowwww!
Sounds innocent enough? Now, lets highlight this whole rhyme!
Wicked? Haha, I’m feeling horny today…
Some sicko has abandoned a dwarf hamster at the staircase landing. It looks like a Albino Campbell to me. Poor hammy has a bald patch on one side of the body and it’s not difficult to guess why because there’s a piece of buttered cracker inside the cage!
What sorts of rubbish have they been feeding the poor little tyke?? And it’s not even a proper cage! The base is not even deep enough to contain bedding. The poor hamster only had a piece of toilet paper for comfort!
I feel so sorry for the little hamster but my parents wouldn’t let me bring him home. They say that he looks diseased. Period.
My father knew that I would surely sneak back to bring the hammy home and hide it somewhere in my room so he ordered my mum to march me straight home while he brought the hammy to the void deck, hoping other people would pick it up.
But my father is no simpleton. He makes sure he left the hamster somewhere I couldn’t find and he wouldn’t reveal where he left him. My father really took great pains to make sure that I stay away from the hammy!
I really don’t know what to say about these idiots who goes round dumping the poor animals. Didn’t they know that having a pet is a big RESPONSIBILITY of a LIFETIME? The hamster is now paying for his owner’s deadly sins with HIS life through no fault of his!!
This reminds me of the SPCA slogan:
What you pay with your money; the pet paid with its life!
I curse the owners to suffer the same fate through the law of cause and effect.
