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...

  4. The first time I saw a sugar glider was at a pet show in Menglembu. It is blessed with a kind owner who will give it good care and love.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
