Say Hello!

Presenting my guinea pigs Rufus and Scruffy! Got them 2 weeks ago, and they're 2 months old. They are about 5-6 inches long now, but i saw the fully grown ones at the pet shop which were huge! I would say it's about the size of a rabbit!

They are both Abyssinian guinea pigs which are the type that have cowlicks on their coats. We aren't very sure about their gender but we're suspecting both are males. Hopefully they are of the same gender, wouldn't want more baby pigs popping around!



Both have different personalities. Scruffy still runs away whenever we try to pet him, but will stay still when you hold him and makes soft wheeking (guinea pig sounds) when we pet him. He doesn't like you feeding him either.

Rufus has gotten use to being around us. He looks forward to our visits to their cage cause it usually means food is coming. Ha! He will stand on his hind legs and look up at us expectantly and wheeks excitedly. He loves to sit in the food bowl and doesn't mind you feeding him. Mind you, he eats a lot and very fast!

As you can see, there are some carrots and cucumber in the food bowl. They love cucumbers very much and that would be their first choice of food.

Just wondering now how to cut their fingernails?

Dining at Wendy's

Wendy's the fast food chain has been in Malaysia for some months now. I visited the first one at Sunway Pyramid and then i found there's one at Jaya One in PJ.

I'm not a big fan of beef burgers (except Ramli burgers), so i don't usually order them at restaurants. Wendy's beef patties are different from others as they are square. I did take a bite of Wendy's beef burger....and well....i still don't like beef burgers. I do like their chicken and fries!

Spicy fried chicken

Shrimp burger, with real shrimp!
Still nice and fresh

Wendy's big whoop.
Had to add chili sauce to enhance the taste

Well, i know someone who likes to add things into his burgers, go over to his blog to see how he eats it!

Weekend at Avillion, PD

Last weekend, i attended a beach wedding at Avillion, Port Dickson. The drive to Avillion took around 2 hours. The drive was smooth and sunny along the way. We didn't want any rain during the beach wedding!

Before reaching the hotel, we passed by a long stretch of soldiers marching by the side of the road.

Here's a series of photos detailing my stay at Avillion.

We had a few hours before the beach wedding, so we walked around to explore the place. They had a small area where they kept some animals.

Poor butterflies they never saw what was coming....(inside joke)


They had quite a few footwashes around the place.
Good for washing feet after walking on the beach

Water slide

We headed back soon after that to get ready for the ceremony that evening. The beach was just next to our water chalets (we stayed at Tumasek Chalet).

I won't be posting up at pictures of the wedding and dinner. But it was a real blast!
