Yesterday

The title is as succinct as it should be.

It all started in the morning with insufficient sleep, resulting in a grumbly personality, followed by multiple screw-ups at work that really put a dent on my professionalism!

You thought that will be all?

C'mon, that's a normal and common situation for some people!

The bad day continued when i found out that the family's most senior resident (in terms of relative age) was practically immobile (reasons unknown)!

Xiaolun, our home-bred chinchilla of over 13 years old (average age in Singapore was supposedly 8 years), was found lying on the hard bedding and though alive, was trying desperately to get on her feet!

Xiaolun in her youth!
Thankfully, my sister brought her to see a vet and Xiaolun is currently recovering! It's a long story for her long suffering predicament and i shan't destroy my mood trying to explain in detail.

As the saying goes, the day can only get worse!

I received a phone call informing me that a friend whom i have not contacted for the past three years has died from an acute asthma attack....

Thinking about him before i attended the wake, i realised how much i learned and how much i enjoyed his companion when he was a caring groomer to my rubee and later, a truthful customer when i was working in sales for pet food and accessories, and lastly, as a friend...

  His quirky laughter, his unexpected jokes, his informal heck-care persona were all deeply etched in my memory.. 

Forever missing you, Wen Jun....
And i am sorry....

    My pets and I will missed your laughter and love....
