Adopt A Cat (For Free!)

           Actually if you think you are ready to have a pet cat, you don't have to buy it. Apparently they can be given free. Just check out the face book page like in the picture above- Malaysian Cats Free Adoption 
But don't dream of having those expensive breed of cats like Scottish Folds or Persian. Most of them are local or domestic breed. If u are lucky they might be mixed! This is a public announcement and I am not affliated with the page itself, only I feel that it's BETTER if we stop buying cats from pet shops for the sake of the cats... Besides there are many stray cats out there. I NEVER bought any of my cats. I picked them out from the back of my house and I trained and domesticated them myself. The first year was hell, yeah, but it was worth it..

              To get your pet, you just have to like the page, and then go to the public wall (it's written as everyone) and read the posts there. Look at the pics and if the original owner is in your area, you're in luck! I stalk this page everyday because i love reading about how this cat got adopted or found a new home. Yeah i'm messed up that way XP btw if i didn't have 3 adult cats, i would have scourged and devoured the page for those cute kittens they are giving away *be still my beating heart* :)

                 If u happen to have or adopt one, please make sure your cats are neutered and spayed. It's for your own and the cat's benefit. My mom used to disagree on this but after i persuaded her to spay the cats, she is now convinced. You can ask me where you can neuter or spay them in KL area.[or in any other area, i'll search the net for you :)]

p/s: do you know that if you send your cats to SPCA, and after 2 weeks, if nobody wants them, they'll be put to sleep? T____________T

On September 11, 2001 where was I and what was I doing?

I remember clearly that morning. I was still in UKM, and I had class the whole day, and living in the college in my second year, it was my routine to watch the telly after Isya’. Usually I go and watch those Chinese dramas, so popular at that time. Around 10pm the news about 9-11 came out, and it was surreal. TV3 was reporting as ‘AMERICA UNDER ATTACK’ and it was pretty chaotic. As I watched, the number of students watching it grew, because it was a horrific sight. None of us said anything.  The news only reported what happened, and we didn’t know who was behind it or what repercussion it would bring later. It just felt bad. I went to my room at 11pm.

                The next day, it was all over the news and newspaper, and then the reality of the situation hit me.  I still remembered the news reported, close to 4,000 casualties but the story dominated the telly that day and the rest of the month. I kept thinking how horrible! I remembered talking to my friend about the huge amount of deaths, and how terrible it was. Imagine, it’s the number of occupants in the whole of UKM! It was nauseating and this act of terrorism is very, very appalling and disgusting. I never felt so bad for anybody, as bad as what I felt for the family of the victims(rivaled only what I felt for the 2004 tsunami victims) And when we watched about the firefighters who died trying to rescue before the towers collapse, it made it worse. I pray this will never happen again, not to me nor anybody in this world.

This was the exact news I watched on TV1 and it was repeated the whole week.

 RIP 9-11 Victims
