RIP Hyper Kura

Anyone that has buried their own pet know it’s not just a pet; it’s like burying family.

One of my red ear sliders passed away in the wee hours of the morning, though I felt it was going to happen.

She wasn’t eating in the last 3 days, which was very unusual. And when out of the tank, she kept going to dark corners to rest, something an animal typically does as if searching for a final resting place.

No visible injury. I wasn’t sure if sending to the vet would’ve solved anything. It seemed inevitable.

She was one the first 2 red ear sliders I have, way back in 2005.Yep, she was there when I stayed up late nights figuring out the whole Internet business thing, and pretty much a silent witness to my ups and downs.

She’s also a favorite of house guests, and she’s called “Hyper” because she’s a light sleeper and easily excited by presence of people.

I counted she’s been to 9 homes, and lived in grottos and small ponds, so for a home turtle she lived a rather ‘rich’ life.

A bummer she’s gone too soon, considering that a red ear slider’s life span is 35-40 years.

But what’s happened, happened.R.I.P. Hyper Kura (May 2005 – 30th November 2021)

Flow Rider Wipe Out @ 1 Utama

I went to Flow Rider at 1 Utama yesterday evening without preparation but expected one outcome: to get wiped out in every attempt! haha

Alyssa and I signed up for 2 hours but we stayed for just slightly more than an hour. The fun came to an end when Alyssa dislocated her left shoulder, and we had to drive to the nearest hospital.

We spent about 2 hours at the hospital, and shucks didn’t think we’d be here. Anyways despite the mishap, it was fortunate that not only I had a clear schedule (unlike last month), because I took Grab over that I didn’t have to worry about my own car when I drove hers. PLUS insurance got her hospital fee covered, so that’s that.

We’ll be back again!

P.S. Just woke up today, and wow my body aches. That must had been a full body workout, it’s been a long time since I last experienced that.
