Oscar has been with us for the last 14 years. Wanted to put his pic up here so at least there is a record of him or else i know it'll somehow be deleted from my phone. The last year saw him deteriorating like crazy and his last week alive had to be when my parents were away at Australia. They didn't have a chance to see him go.
We had Oscar given to us when I was in Form 1 as a puppy. He was so small he could squeeze through the front door and come into the house whenever he liked. Eventually he grew too big that only his head could fit in. He was an energetic dog, chasing motorcycles all the time, and going out and making lotsa babies with I don't know which bitch out there. Good life as a player. Maybe it's due to his good looks. (The son came out looking not as good, i bet the mom was like a fugly bitch. He may have the looks but he ain't got the taste).
Anyway, these are his pictures during his last few days.
He still looked good as ever but he was limping around non-stop, panting non-stop for 2 days, and not eating for 2 days. Fell inside the drain twice, and when I picked him up and cleaned him up he didn't even have energy to shake the water off. He had problems even standing up from a lying position already.
The last straw came when he couldn't even lick the food in even though I put it on his tongue. I had to shoot water into his mouth as he wasn't drinking too. His last night here, he was lying down and that's when I found out why he's been limping like crazy. There was an open wound on his paw and there were freaking maggots swimming inside. Must have been due to not letting us bathe him for the last few weeks. That sight made my mind up that was going back and forth on whether I should put him down and end the suffering. I knew if I didn't it would just be totally cruel to let him live like that.
The next morning, he was still limping around but finally lied down, and didn't even stand up to pee anymore. I took him in a towel, without putting up a struggle like he normally does, I carried him into the car, and drove down to the vet. It felt like a super long drive even though it was so near as I was hesitating along the way.
As soon as the vet saw Oscar, he said, he's really in bad shape and should go. Before the whole jab was even done, Oscar had already passed on.
I come home everyday now to an empty patio, where Oscar normally is. He had a good life.
Shasha's still with us.

I realise I've been doing some crazy stunts lately. Probably too crazy for the age that I am already (not the age that I feel I am). Did both these stunts on the same day last weekend. Can't believe I'm still walking now.
Was at the Gatsby event all day and after the long ass day of supervising the game booths, the nuffies decided to try some of the games ourselves so the thing that we said we had to do was the Rodeo ride. Michelle took this pretty-damn-awesome-dunno-why-there-are-2-of-me-in-this-picture picture:
I fell after holding on for dear life for like what I thought was maybe 30 seconds. After that I was spinning like crazy I couldn't walk straight for a while and my palms hurt from all the grabbing so super tightly.
Then at night we went to Karen Mayer's house warming party! I must say that was the highlight of the day as we had some awesome catered food, that eventually got discarded because there was too much and no one tapau-ed!! But why I say it's the highlight it's because:
There you go, vanilla ice cream on home made brownies in one hand, white wine in the other, nice leather couch for my ass, and awesome company for the evening. I could do this everyday.
Then after all the food we had the tour of the new place, and what did we find.... a POLE!!. So I've always wanted to try doing what I see the dudes in pole-dancing do....so I tried it and lasted for like probably, .5 sec.
Thanks to Karen she was good in capturing that .5 sec that I was suspended in the air like that. And after that my back and abs started hurting.
First the bull, then the pole. Poor me.

That's right. That's my sister in black in the video. See Yin from Mindshare asked me about my sister playing badminton and I asked him to search for her in Youtube, so he found it and I thought I'd share it with everyone as well. I don't think she plays just as much anymore but I think still enough to represent Western Australia. It used to be playing for Selangor state, training under the state association, training with Han Jian, training with Misbun, waking up at 6am everyday during holidays and coming back just as I'm waking up at 10-11am, and after lunch when I go take my nap, she goes back for afternoon training. Maybe that's why she's better than me in pretty much everything.
So if you think I kick your ass in badminton, wait til you play with her....ngahahaha

Have always thought that a blog post supposed to be a long ass one, just like how all the top bloggers do it, which is why I never really thought of populating this blog as I don't have time to put a long ass post with pictures here. But then I'm thinking now, fts, this is my blog I do watever the hell I like. So this is the first short post from me and many more to come.
Well blog posts are not complete without a picture too so yeah, here to you go, this is one from the Project Alpha blogger's launch.
This is the start of many more to come....
