Goodbye Goat… And Hello Monkey

Published February 8, 2016 by ireneyksoh

And so its time to bid farewell to Mr Goat and say welcome to Mr Monkey. Time really flies. And as I look forward to 2015, I can’t helped but looked back at how 2015 had been for me.

2015 has not been a bed of roses for me, with lots of ups and downs like a roller coaster. Many things had happened and for a good reason. I am not going to push any blames to others by saying things like, its because of ‘XXX’ or ‘YYY’ that I had to go through such ordeals. My attitude and way in handling situations contributed a large part to this outcome. I simply did not think more seriously and deeply. I tend to presume a lot of things without confirming the executability and its complexity, as well as taking things from granted.


 May 2016 be a fruitful year for me. May all my family members, loved ones, friends and colleagues be blessed with great health. May we all win in lots and lots of contest together. Lets huat huat huat ah this monkey year…

My Little Princess Hamu Hime

Published February 1, 2016 by ireneyksoh

It was by God knows how many strokes of luck (Not sure if its mine or hers) that I ‘rescued’ myself a pet hamster at NEL Mrt station. It was so unbelievable that when I told my friends and colleagues about it, most of them simply stare at me and a few simply went dumbfound. The guys were asking: “Why is it not cash that you had found?” and the ladies were asking : ” You pick up a rat with bare hands?” I was like hahaz… Hamsters does also belongs to the Rodent family but they are different from rats. Same goes to other species like Gerbil, Guinea pig, Mice and Chinchilla.


Thanks to a lovely sister, Liana who helped me keep a lookout on SGfreerecycle page, Hamu hime had a really awesome cage to called its home. There were lots of other part to this cage but I decided to keep it sweet and simple. Not only because Hamu hime is still quite small. Mostly importantly, is due to space constraint in my house.

My favourite past-time now is to watch the sleeping habits of my little princess Hamu hime. Its not as if my bro and I did not buy any toys for her. We even gotten her a cute wooden house to sleep in. But our darling princess simply refuse to sleep in the house. She would rather sleep all around her cage than inside. The house ended up becoming her dumping ground for empty seed shells and garbage.

Was your hamster that cute too? Care to share with me?
