A Pet Called Sugar Glider

A SUGAR GLIDER FOR A PET....

I had never seen or rather heard of Sugar Glider until a couple of weeks ago.  This is the first time I encountered a Sugar Glider until that day when someone bought it through online and since then, have keep it as a pet.  There is a story behind this SG...

When this someone I called W told me that he managed to get a Sugar Glider through an online website, I was like "huh"... what is that?  Then he forwarded a picture of SG to me.... oh my, this is the first time I have seen such a creature, Big eyes, pouted nose, soft greyish fur with a long tail.  I was told that it comes from a Koala and Kangaroo species, living in pouches and clinging to your finger or whatever it can grasp hold of.

W grew to love him, yes, it is a male.... when he brought it home, the SG is still a baby, the eyes were closed.  After a week or so, W sensed that something was wrong with the SG.  He took it to see a vet, in fact two vets and both confirmed the same thing.... The Sugar Glider he brought home is permanently blind!  So pathetic.... the owner must have known about it for he stopped answering the calls when W called him.  Really bad...

Anyway... W is not devastated.. he loves this SG very much... he does not regret bringing it home, instead, he has more caring towards the Sugar Glider now... He accompanies him wherever he goes... even though the SG cannot see, he can sense his owner, W... They are now good friends!
Introducing the SG, a new member of the family...

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
