Do you ever had a moment when you saw a familiar person, then you went to him/her, spoke to them for seconds and walked away slowly from him full of shame and regret of yourself? Well, that's exactly what happened to me last Sunday.

At Pekeliling, while waiting for my bus, there was this boy, and his face looked very familiar. Depended on my memory, he could be my former school's junior. Yeah, I'm not so good with people's name. They are always confusing me, sometimes with their father's name. With faces, not good either. I just don't care much about other people, and that's gotta change.

When he walked into the bus stop, I was sitting on the iron bench, right under ceiling fan. I noticed him and like, 'This guy is familiar,' then turned away. But, I kept noticing him looking at me for a long time, so I tried to refresh this memory. Minutes after that, he smiled at me, so I smiled back, though I tried to avoid straight eye-contact in case he'd sit beside me and begin to talk, which is hard for me 'cause I dun even know who he was.

On the bus, I got a sit next to a woman, damn the ticket seller. Actually, there's just an empty seat beside the boy. Why couldn't he place me there?? But I refused to move. 1st of all, people who appear familiar to us, and we don't remember their names or background, is a real shame on us.. 2ndly, it was back seat, and I was holding Sue. She could get carsick.

When we arrived, I took a last look at him and that's it. I couldn't remember who he is. There's no way I was about to begin the conversation. So, I stood way from other people, at the entry of the bust station, waiting for my brother to fetch me up. To my surprise, there he was, suddenly appeared to my right. To broke the silence and awkwardness, I smiled to him first before saying hi.

'Hi. Tunggu sape?' This is me asking.
'Tunggu adik aku...'
'Duk sni ke?'
'Ha'ah.. Rantau Perintis. Dekat jea ngan umah kau.' Hah sudah!!
'oohh.. (cube b'lagak cool) kau batch bile ea?' This is the line I regret the most.
'Batch? Batch ape? Sekolah menengah?'
'Aku sekolah kat sini jea. Bandar Pusat 1.'
'Oh. but aku tengok ka cam familiar. Aku ingat budak INTEK dulu'.
Oh yeah, this above sentence right here, is the biggest regret. Not the other one. 1st of all, I shouldn't say U looked familiar. 2nd, He doesn't even had a clue of what INTEK is!!!!

I should've just gone with 'Long time no see, how are you now, bla bla bla' that kinda talk. But I'm sure that he knew me too. My best bet is that he's my junior in primary school. No wonder he looked bigger than the last face I remember!! haha....

P/S: I'll be more careful while meeting other people on the next days. And I'll try to remember names too!

That's it people. Adios. Tq for reading. =) 

Meet Spiky Sue. =)

Hi everyone. Remember my post about the hedgehog? Well, night after that, Afeeq informed me that his cousin has babies to sell. His 2 moms gave birth to some pups at the same time, sort of. So, I went out with it, contacted him, and VOILA!! Got myself a baby hedgehog in one month and a half, which is by that time, perfect. I got my PTPTN loan, and it was in the holiday, so I dun't have anything to spend on.

Last weekend, I went to Gombak, bla bla bla.. Fetched Sue (this is her name. Got it from Sue Sylvester, which is also her full name) and Will and Emma (my brother's guinea pigs). But unfortunately, I've to leave Emma and Will with Naeim at Gombak because the coldblooded bus driver won't allow me to get it on the bus. He told me to leave 'em at the baggage storage, which is right under the bus, very close to the engine, therefore, very hot. I refused, so called my uncle and gave them away to Naeim. TQ Naeim n Poksu.

When meeting Sue at the first time, I was astounded. She's huge! I've done some reading before and the 2months old babies would actually be as only big as a tennis ball. After further reading, I found out it varies through breed. Some moms produce bigger hoglets than the others, especially when she's well-fed, well taken care of. No wonder the one that my mom'd held were much smaller. It was in the zoo. Not given so much attention I guess.

At the early time of our meeting, Sue curled up a lot. She was frightened. Maybe she wasn't use of my scents while I'm holding him. After a lot of getting together in these few days, she's now much calmer. She'd climb upon me, let me to pick her up, no more curling, and this evening, as I picked her out from the aquarium, and brushed her quills a little, she fell into sleep on my lap! She's adorable. Really is.

But, she's not used to everybody just yet. Still in progress. The person that she'd be calm about are only me and mom. She practically bit my brother's finger and hissing when it comes to other person.

her aquarium, or at least, temporary.
I'll be using the Emma's cage for her, as it is more prcatical compared to their size.

She loves to play with the ball, pushing it with her head,
And the tissue roll, she'll stuck her head inside it.
Pink carrot is natural stone, supposed to wear her teeth down, and provide her with calcium.
The wood is for her to walk around as I'm working on her wheel. 
She also likes to sleep under it, much cooler I think. 

menguap dalam rumah dia...

She also get well with her diet and environment, though she always re-arrange the decorations in the aquarium at night. That's some workmanship over there, ain't? Last night, I put a lot of food into her container and as I woke up this morning, it was half empty. That's why she poops a lot. (Yaya has ordered me a plastic bag full of her poops.)
My own.

Okay that's all everyone. I'll tell u more about Sue in the soon-becoming post ea. hehe.. =)
