3 days ago a baby civet cat (musang pandan) came into our house. All this while we only hear them running on our roof chasing after rats. I guess that day this baby civet cat got scared when the coconut plucker plucks the coconut and disturbed his home. After coming into our house, the civet cat couldn’t find the way out. The civet cat ended up in my bedroom. Hubby managed to catch it with a fishing net. Unfortunately, hubby’s finger got bitten by the civet cat when trying to grab hold of it.
Hubby managed to transfer the civet cat from the fishing net to a big plastic bag then into a cage. One of my SILs told us that a restaurant might want to buy it. After a phone call, the restaurant chef didn’t want a baby civet cat. I posted about it on FB and a friend is interested in it; he wants to cook herbal soup with the civet cat!
The next morning, the civet cat was no longer in the cage. It escaped through another door which we did not notice. The door was close but not lock. Well, not his fate to end up in someone’s bowl of herbal soup. I did tell hubby to let it go but hubby worried that the civet cat will eat our puppies. I hope he won’t.
The birth of a dozen puppies that we missed. My eldest daughter was disappointed coz she did not get to witness the birth these puppies. She was looking forward to this day since she saw 2 dogs “climbed up” on her dog, Julee. When I woke up this morning at 7.30am, the maid excitedly told me that the dog has given birth to 12 puppies. All my children are excited to have so many cute lil puppies in their own home.
I feel so stress up hearing some of the puppies crying. 12 puppies but only 8 tits. And this Julee dun wanna open her legs wide apart. Macam mana the puppies wanna get to their source of food??? Aiyo! Felt like picking those crying puppies to nurse them myself. Can arh?
Hubby told the children that some of the puppies will die; be prepared. That’s a sad thing to know. Why must some of them die? I am sure we can help to keep all of them alive. Can we?
I mentioned that we have more than one suitor right? After getting what they wanted, they have been sticking around to the extend of sleeping over at our place; at our car porch and stealing our dog’s food.
To date, there are 4 of them! Shooing them does not work. So hubby made a few catapult slingshot to scare away these stray dogs.
Hubby made one each of our 3 older children. The first catapult slingshot were bought though.
The children had fun playing with their new toys yesterday. So does their daddy.
We have a bitch at home. For the past few days we more than one “suitor” coming to try their luck in getting “into” her. They got no manners one; they did “it” in the presence of my children! I had a hard time answering my eldest with regards to that.
“Mommy, why did the bigger dog climb on top of Julee?”
“Why did the dog stick his konek into Julee’s bontot?”
“Mommy, it got stuck for a while but thank goodness it came out after a while.”
Time to explain to her about the bird and the bees. On that day, she learned new words like sex, mating, sperm, egg, ovum and making babies. She is very excited to know that her dog will be having babies soon.
Then came another question…“Which dog will be the babies’ daddy?” That took me by surprise, “Huh???” She then told me that there are 2 dogs that climb over Julee and got stuck for a while. Then she figured out by herself that the daddy must be the first dog because his sperm went to find the egg first. *smart girl* (but not necessary though)
After that came question like, Why is her tummy still flat? Is she pregnant yet? How long will she be pregnant? When will the babies come out? How does dog give birth? I told her to Google about it then print to read. At the same time, I went to Youtube to search on video about dog giving birth and let her watch. This is the video that she watched.
On Monday morning, right before the last in laws depart from our house, one of their children saw our dog’s hind legs was shivering uncontrollably. He looked very sick too. We suspected that he ate the poisoned left at the fish pond by one of my brother in laws for the monitor lizard. The monitor lizards have been feasting on our Tilapias.
So, how to save the poisoned dog from dying? MIL said not to give him water as that will expedite his death. Then I remembered what my father did to our dog who accidentally ate poisoned bread. He forced feed the dog with lots of coconut water. To this day, the dog is still alive and healthy.
Told my MIL about it and she made the poisoned dog drink coconut water from 2 coconuts. A few hours later, the dog was up and walking about and to this day, he is still alive. The coconut water saved the dog.
Why coconut water? Well, do you know that coconut water has the anti-toxin properties? And it helps to boost your immune system too. Don’t believe me, go Google about the benefit of coconut water.

The weather has gone crazy. Normally the month before Chinese New Year, it will be very hot, windy and dry but not this year. It has been raining almost every day and some places are flooded due to continuous rain.
I love it when it rains during the night or early in the morning. It is so nice to sleep in especially if you have a heated blanket. The other day, I continued sleeping after sending my 3 kids to school only to wake up when clock strikes 12noon! And I felt so refreshed and rejuvenated. Thanks to the cold weather.
But no thanks to rainy days when I have laundry to dry especially my baby’s cloth diapers’ inserts. The urine smell does not go away without the sun. Last night, I ended up changing him to disposable diaper because I can’t stand the smell of the urine on his inserts.
This afternoon a clew of worms committed suicide in my aromatherapy diffuser!
Before taking our afternoon nap, I placed the ceramic aromatherapy diffuser at the sink in our bedroom. I was using the Rose Buds fragrance oil. My eldest girl commented that the smell “taste” yummy and makes her want to eat it!
I was awaken by the smell of something burning and I was so shock to see that my ceramic aromatherapy diffuser caught fire. There were flames coming out from the candle hole. It is impossible for it to catch fire coz there is nothing flammable at the sink.
I tried blowing the fire out but to no avail so I used water to put off the fire. Out flow the water with black particles. I splashed more water and more black particles came out from the hole. I suspected that an insert committed suicide in there but after getting my eldest girl to switch on the room light, I got a shock to discover out that the black particles was a clew of burnt worms!
How did they ended up in my diffuser? Did they crawl all the way up from the sink hole? Actually, for the past few weeks, we came across this clew of worms a few times; plus today, 5 times already! I wonder which insert brought them into our house!
Hubby suggested that I burn the same fragrance oil again tomorrow. More might crawl up the sink hole! I might do it but this time, I cannot nap. Must investigate how all this happened.
I am not a flower person. Hubby can never forget how I scolded him for wasting his money to buy me an expensive bouquet of flowers on our marriage registration day. hahaha. Why do you need to bring flower on the ROM day? We need to sign papers you know. Not to pose here and there at the marriage registrar office. Later I found out that the registrar who was also our church member told hubby to buy flowers for me! At least, tell me lar right?
But I don’t mind receiving flowers once in a blue moon. I still remember how my hubby (my then boyfriend) surprised me with a bouquet of roses while I was working at a jewelry shop at MP. I still have 3 stalk of roses (dried up) which hubby gave me after his trip to Cameron Highland more than a decade ago. My blogger mommies made my day by sending flowers online on my birthday.
I hope I will get a bouquet of flowers this coming birthday. It has been a long, long time since I receive any (excluding those wild flowers that my children pick for me when they play outdoor. hehe).
