Nope, it’s not Shah Alam Magistrates’ Court but
Sabah Animal Medical Centre


Their Price List:


Their Philosophy


Their first patient this morning

Little Dan weights 13KG this morning… he lost 2KGs!

After further examination by Doctor R, it turned out that LD does not have Anal Sac Infection afterall but there is a tear wound right underneath his anus, and the smell was because the wound already infested with maggots!!!

No wonder he could sleep eat well, imagine worms wriggling through your buttom… poor thing has suffered two nights of unimaginable pain! I wanted to cry there at the vet clinic… my poor Little Dan…

Erm… I’ve took pictures of the maggots taken out and the lacerated wound… if you dare to see gross things, click here and here.

And here’s Little Dan in my car, after the operation. still wobbling as the anesthesia is just about to wear off!


Total medical fee costs me RM150.
Including antibiotic capsules and a can of maggot spray.

Anal Sac Infection

Mom finds Little Dan smelling fishy… and that his backside looks wounded. But LD was not involved in any fights…

I checked his anal area and found out surely, that he has an infection there, not knowing what was it, I googled and found out about anal sac infection.


Apparently, only dogs and cats have this anal sac glands which purpose is to emit distinctive scent for each individual dog/cat to mark their territories.

If these glands got blocked, ie the liquid from the glands can’t be emitted with the pet’s pooh… it will cause an infection. And obesity is the likely cause of blockage! Sigh… LD is definitely obese (thanks to dad)!

LD has been restless over the weekends, he can’t seem to sit or sleep well. Keep licking his tail…scoots after he pooh and he won’t eat.

I bought him can dog food which is a treat to him during his healthy days, but he won’t touch it either. He still drinks, so I tried giving him some milk and he finished it.

I wanted to send him to the vet but as it is weekend, all vet clinics are closed… so we had to wait till tomorrow.

LD slept in my room last night, he is so “manja” when he is not well so I just let him. But he couldn’t sleep well through the night, which means I couldn’t sleep well too…

It will be another night of endurance tonight… its so heart breaking to see him like that’… I don’t know if it’s painful or itchy for him!

Just hope tomorrow after he sees the vet the ordeal will be all over!

The Wizard of Oz

Having read Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland over the last couple of weekends and finally finished reading The Wizard of Oz this morning... I have come to like The Wizard of Oz the best!

Peter Pan is adventurous,
Alice in Wonderland is imaginative...
but The Wizard of Oz makes me think!

That's what made me love the Wizard's story the best.


In The Wizard of Oz,
Alice was looking for a way home,
Scarecrow was looking for brains,
Tin Woodman was looking for a heart, and
Cowardly Lion was looking for courage.

Family, wisdom, love and courage!
Don't we all seek these in our lives...
we painstakingly work towards achieving these goals
thinking they were unachievable...
But the fact is, those were not things we could have instantly,
but things to slowly acquired during the quest of seeking them!

When Oz gave them what they had wanted,
the Courage Potion, the Heart made of velvet, the brains made of bran and needles... those were just decorations! Cowardly Lion, Tin Woodman, and Scarecrow have all already earned courage, good heart and wisdom along the journey they travelled!

As for Alice, she has the Silver Shoes on the feet on the first day which means she could have gone home the first day she got lost. But if she had known that, she would have had such a wondrous adventures with her friends...

Life is like that... :)
It's the journey, and what we experienced along the way,
and what we learned from it that is precious!

Cloudy Friends

I like to look at the sky when… well, whenever!
I like to see how the clouds drift by slowly…
How sometimes, they are like waving at me, saying hello…
Sometimes you may see me standing in the middle of the road, head up… smiling… just because I thought it would only be nice to smile back at them.

I’m not crazy you know!

_Tempo LX3 

If you want to know, my cloudy friends have names…

Next time, if you see my friends, say their names! They will be delighted to know that you know them by their names!

I’m not crazy you know!

Dance a Cachucha

I need to learn this piece of music for my flute lesson,
Dance a Cachucha by Arthur Sullivan


So I googled for a youtube video to get an idea how the music is like…  what a great fun piece!

But I doubt I could play the flute piece at that speed… my tongue will be all twisted…

There’s a Bug in my Car

Every time I fix the aircon in my car to blow from the windscreen, there’s this “gadark gadark” sound… at first I thought the aircon must be spoiled. But I didn’t bother because I thought so long as I don’t get the aircon to blow from the windscreen, it doesn’t matter (I’m too lazy to drive the car to the service centre).

Then the other while taking my brother on a ride to KK, I saw from the windscreen reflection, a brown thingy stuck in the middle of the aircon ventilation holes… so I asked my brother to try see what it was.

My brother took his camera, zoomed in and got this picture!


Gross?! It’s a giant bug!

Till today, it is still stuck there in my car… I have no idea how it gets there, and have no idea how to get it (or its corpse) out of there!

Suing Sole Proprietor

This morning at the court, one lawyer came before the judge with the presence of the second defendant who is also the owner of the business of the 1st defendant which is a trading company (ie not a company registered under the Companies Act, but a business conducted under a trading license).

The second defendant disputed the claim and thus the lawyer asked the court for an order that the second defendant be given some time to file in his defence.

The judge then asked further, what about the first defendant. The lawyer said still unsure of who is the owner of the business but trading license search show that the second defendant owns the business.

The judge: “So, is the first defendant present today?”

(trying to hint to the lawyer that, he should asked for the first defendant to enter defence too because if the second defendant owns the business, the second defendant’s presents and disputing the claim also represents the same for the first defendant)

(if the second defendant does not own the first defendant, then first defendant is considered absent and lawyer could ask for judgement in default of appearance to be entered against the trading company)

But… the lawyer didn’t seem to get what the judge was trying hard to hint to him… so the judge gave up and ordered the case to be adjourned till later.

A business under trading license is not an incorporated company like a Sdn Bhd and as such does not have a separate entity. As such, when you sue a trading company, you are suing the person who owns the business, therefore so long as the owner of the company is present, he represents the business.

I need to be in love

The song says it all for me… :)
I would also like to dedicate this song to LM & M,
Gals, glad to have you around KK… friends in sight!


The hardest thing I've ever done is keep believing
There's someone in this crazy world for me
The way that people come and go through temporary lives
My chance could come and I might never know

I used to say "No promises, let's keep it simple"
But freedom only helps you say goodbye
It took a while for me to learn that nothing comes for free
The price I paid is high enough for me

I know I need to be in love
I know I've wasted too much time
I know I ask perfection of a quite imperfect world
And fool enough to think that's what I'll find

So here I am with pockets full of good intentions
But none of them will comfort me tonight
I'm wide awake at 4 a.m. without a friend in sight
I'm hanging on a hope but I'm all right

I know I need to be in love
I know I've wasted too much time
I know I ask perfection of a quite imperfect world
And fool enough to think that's what I'll find
