i went to Guang Xi for 5 days. yeah, those r really asshole. someone told me these group of ppl will only need 3 sentences to describe them. " Shang che shui jiao, xia che niao niao, hui jia shen me dou bu zhi dao" (sleep when u r in the car, pee when u r out from the car, and at last u know nothing when u r home)
nice scenary. i think i'll plan a future trip again. but this time, it must be a back pack travel with maximum 4 person only. that will be more fun.
actually those food that we (tourist) had r specially "formulated" for us called "tuan chan" (group meal). it is like those food we have at the canteen, everyday teh same! that's why your father said the food sucks but i would say that those "group meals" are sucks but no commend on their local delicacy as i don't even have a chance to try on it (but beware on the sanitary level). argghhh.... really wanna go again!
u know how they mess up my mood? when the tour guide was talking in front, they (99% are arrogant aunties that thinks they r one class higher than the China's chinese) ignore her and gamble (imagine, "two table" in a bus and shouted like a mad person when someone win). this is so embaressing as they might see US - Malaysian as "a group of uncivilize monkeys who r crazy in gambling".
and i fall sick for two days after the trip. didn't get enough water and got fever. my mom said "sei loh! don't know if u got SARS or not!" but i know i'm not lah as my fever only reached 37degree not over 38 degree. but it feels very bad when u really got sick for two days. sleep and toilet business only for two days.....
my dad says every morning also eat prridge with some dishes..their food's not so spicy unless u try sechuan..lagi the winter almost killed my dad..was -2 selcious..when u go was it still snowing? coz spring came quite late this year in UK..it's juz spring now when it's suppose to be summer d..
u should go see panda..that's the only reason i want to go China..but there r so many things & interesting places..my parents also said they want to go again..my grandma used to go almost annnually coz she's from China... do u have any ancestry from China?
u wanna see panda? easy lah! take a bus to KL and look for me. sure u'll see a BIG PANDA who didn't sleep well since months ago.
actually u can see panda at Hong Kong's Ocean park. i was there and suprisingly met two beautiful pandas. so happy to see them. and one of them even "bang sai" infront of me. for the first time in my entire life i saw panda's poo. greyish green and looks not so gross afterall.
well, Guang Xi is at the south of China and it is now late spring to early summer. the weather is just like us but the breeze is cooling. better avoid going to China during winter especially for old ppl as lot's of them tends to fall sick when they couldn't stand the extremem weather. well, the air is dryer than ours and u should bring some lip balm to keep your lips moist.
make sure u take enough water with u. and eat fruits and take vit C. and don't miss the "bizzare toilet" of China.
well, i have some relatives at China (they r my grandpa's cousins' childrens) but didn't really keep in touch as they treat us like "the goose who lay golden eggs". tired of them. try to treat them good but they treat u as piggy bank only. i also wonder if i should go back to visit my grandpa's village coz i'm worry they might "strip my skin off" coz i have no money.

oh...aunties hor...... yeah i know...sometimes aunty aunty are like that...that's the ugly side of chinese loh....sometimes feel so ashamed of my own race lah..
oh poor you...how are you feeling now? no more toilet business i presume? a lot of ppl fall sick these days...due to the weather? my 2 bros and my dad all came down with fever and flu and coughing... my house is like "virus zone"..... luckily my mom and i are fine....
u r now talking to a giant panda too..hehe..i also din sleep well for a few months d... but if u wan me to see u panda mak then i can meet up with u when i'm down in KL
seeing panda at it's habitat is the nicest view...i have not been to Hk but would love to go one day. 'bang sai'..wah u very keng lah..very lucky lah i would say..coz ppl rarely get to see a panda poo also..
i muz ask my dad where he been..true coz my dad bought alot of lip balm..when he went he wore socks & gloves 24/7 and applied lipba;lm coz he did not expect it to be so cold n had cracked lips when the wind blow. my dad also bought some cheongsam coz it's quite cheap N those caligraphic paintings.
My grandma has a twin sister there..truelah like what u said..'sapu' everything u have..think like my grandma juz came back from goldmine like tat...they dun ask but juz take like theirs n took basically everything..my grandma came home with her spectacles coz they took her new gold rimmed glasses...n some of her clothes as well... very scarylah..so now my grandma juz go visit them n go back to my aunt's house in HK.
Would love to join your chit chat forum but I don't really have much to share. Just for my first furkid a week back and since then have been busy visiting the vet in Ikano every weekend trying to get my kid vaccinated.
But unfortunately, each time go there, the doctor say he's not comfortable about the pup getting it done yet and then force me to go for another round of appointment. Money gone, time wasted. And the worst part is, my furkid seems to dislike travelling by car.. Journey to and fro Ikano is really a killer for her. *sigh*
Oh yea, to answer your first post question.. LOTR whole series is already out. But not too sure if there are any full triology sets yet.
dun ahve much to share? don't worry..we dun juz talk about dogs here..we also talk about our lives and complains about anything..as long as u have anything about everything u want to voice up..juz join us
why don't u call the vet first before going there? it's quite inethical of him to keep on rescheduling his appointment unless ur pup's weak or something's wrong..BTW did he mention any reasons for not vaccinating your pup?
if ur baby's not comfortable travelling, why not try to locate a vet near your residental area or somewhere within a shorter distance? actually it's recommended to have a vet near your place so that in cases of emergency, u don't have to travel so far plus it's more convenient to your vet which already has the details/medical records on your pup...think about it
cannot withstand the dosage? what type of excuse is that? unless and until your pup is sick or or below 6 weeks old, if not what 'super dosage' he's giving youyr baby? it's a lame excuselah...
i suppose your pup is almost 2 mths now rite? it's time to take it's first dosage..take 6 in 1 instead of parvo virus coz he's stronger to take 6 in 1 d, plus 6 in 1 has a dosage against distemper which is commonly attacking pups.
normally a dosage would 6 in 1 would cost around 30-50 depending on which vet u take it while the 2nd jab would be of the same price but the last jab is the booster will cost u less...so in total it'll be less than 200.
however if u are insisting to go back to the vet, just call up and ask him what type of vaccination is he giving your dog....
sometimes when u buy a dog, ppl can promise you the whole wold but once it got out to your hands then it's a different story...sadly but there's lack of enforcement causing many innocent buyers to encounter this...if u browse thru the forums you'll see breeders/petshops refuse to issue certificates, refuse to admit selling a sick dog.. but u are lucky...coz u juz face a vaccination problem...call him and pester him coz it's your rights..good luck ya
Well.. if it was just a vaccine problem then it would have been easily solved.. One thing I hope you can help to clarify.. Do all dogs come with a birth certificate or something irregardless if they have been microchipped or registered with MKA?
When I "rescued" the my girl, I was told that she was not not registered with MKA and hence there was no cert or microchip provided. When I asked of her birthdate, the salesperson just mention "You do the calculations yourself.. she was exactly 7 weeks plus 7 days when you bought her." On hearing that only I feel frustrated and had a hard time refraining myself from saying "up yours"...
Thank god my girlie is gaining weight.. but she seems to pick up the habit of biting very hard. Sigh.. telling her stern "No", tap her nose, tossing her around.. all these just seem to encourage her more instead of stopping her.. any special recommendations?
u meanioned ur gal was not registered under MKA rite? if she does not meaning that you'll not get a certificate stating her lineage, her breed and her registered details..however if u purhased your pup from a responsible breeder, they should have at least vaccine their pups before handing it to u or the pet shop u purcahsed her from.
a puppy's immunes system is very weak n they can be easily contacted with various deadly disease if they do not have their at least first jab done before they are placed among other dogs. only after it attained 6 mths the immune system starts to get stronger..which is why u need the 3 dosages are crucial to puppies.
normally after the pup's first visit to vet (usually for their first jab), the vet will issue a vaccination/health record for recording the pup's vaccination dates, types of dosages, it's birthdate & personal details. the card should be choped & signed by a vet and not the breeder themselves.
as the record will only be issued by a vet after it's first jab, however they might not issue u the vaccination record as your pup's vaccination is still pending..as ther's nothing to record. if your pup is bought from a petshop i think chances are they'll not provide u with the birthdate coz i presume they don't even know as the breeder who sold the pups to them sounds so irresponsible.
anyway as long as u love them, birthdate aren't so important rite..i ahve Teddy for almost 5 years now and i dun even know when was he exactly born..so i celebrate the day i bought him back.
ermm actually replied u earlier but suddenly pressed the back button muz retype the whole thing again
okie..back to why am i awake..i'm zombie mah..hehe..like u. nolah..am studying for exams in a day's time ~juz an excuse for staying up late ~ actually i dun really sleep until wee hours say 3-4am...i'm an owl..hehe
when ur pup grows u'll realise that it's birthdate isn't so important after all..now the most imporatant thing is to get ur pup vaccinated but remember to bath her before taking her to the vet coz she cannot be bathed a week after her jab.
by the way, i think Nathalie has a point. sometimes, for my personal point of view, that MKA cert doesn't really important if u don't have the intention to breed your dog. but of course we hope to get a dog with the cert as it is more "secure" than getting a dog that doesn't have it. my male dog is given by someone and he doesn't comes with the cert too (according to the fella, he had the cert but somehow lost it). i got my girl from the breeder and she comes with the cert.
at the beggining, i was quite concern about this and tried all the way to track out his background and hoping to get him the cert again. unfortunately he is born before the microchipping system is introduced. so i failed. but after living with him for sometimes, he has become so attached to me and our relation (two dogs and i) gets so well that i don't really care about their "status" anymore. i don't have the intention to breed them too by the way. if i want to breed dogs, both the dam and sire must have cert so that the pups future will be more secure as when ppl r willing to pay more for a dog (as u know prices r different between a dog with cert and a dog without cert) shows that they really love them (i hope).
Thanks for the opinion.. You're probably right.. so as long as she's already a family member.. I guess it doesn't really matter if she's a Negro or an Asian.. (literally speaking).
I do hope to be able to do the normal activities with her.. just can't wait for her to finish up on her jabs..
Well.. at least being an owl you still getta sleep around after 3am tops.. myself hardly get to sleep.. go back only have to serve my furmistress and attend to her needs.. my sleep time per day since I've gotten charmed by her has been shortened to approx less than 5 hours of sleep..
So.. where do you guys normally hangout or meet up for get-togethers?
yeah, is my mother who does all the feeding and watering for me while i was away. sometimes i feel sorry to make her do so much things for me. fortunately i'm able to come home every weekend and i'll bath, clean, wash, do weeding etc my pets and plants.
by the way, i realised that everytime when the drought season comes, ticks will start attacking my dogs..... i suspect that it is because the drain in between my house and my neighbour's is dry out and those creepy crawlies comes over and...... i've sprayed the garden with some tick chemicals and bath them with bayticol too but those damn ticks seems to return endlessly untill the rain comes again. now i'm force to use the tick spray that i don't like to use it as i'm affraid that they may lick in the chemicals into their stomach. that's the delima to a dog owner, to use or not to use......... sigh...
haha..everytime also mummy will take care wan..hehe me too, when i go holidays..am going KL this weekend..so my mumm pulak muz jaga all my babies..hehe. she will complain abitlah but after a while she'll be juz fine coz she love them as much as her kids
yaloh..it's true..did u use bayticol the right way? a vet once told me it's better to bath your dogs first with shalpoo n leave bayticol on the body after bath for 5 minutes..then u can either rinse it off or leave on..i usually leave on n it's more effective tat way..spray..my personal opinion is tat it's not very lasting..lagi dangerous in case they lick it. my kids also lately kena fleas..tats worse..hmm..i muz sit down n catch it everyday.. but if u use bayticol make sure dun use more than the prescribed 3.5ml-5ml of else it's dangerous for ur kids too..the poison will absorb thru the body thus making them weak or vomit..
not for now till next week..coz sitting for exams where got time to sleep after 3am? surelah muz study till morning...then as soon as friday pass..i'll be in KL d..do u think i can sleep? i'll be zombie cum panda..
u can't do tat, coz eventually u'll get tired n lethergy when u go work/school..better take a nite sleep. remember that u are the owner n she's the dog. she has to follow your lifestyle not u follow hers...this does not mean u don't love her but u need her to undersatnd that she cannot be over pampered in this tender age or else u'll spoil her..so go to sleep..dun look at her & stare at the pc anymore..try to sleep early n she'll do that too once u switched off the lights..
u can keep an eye on the thread of Events & Calenders where they'll announce any gatherings...of course she has to complete all her jabs before she can join in..but ther's a trip to Malacca coming this July..u can check it out coz it sounds fun
