My Babe's Pet Project

Guess what we did after work yesterday? Nolar, not THAT or whatever *something* that the senget brain is thinking. Babe and I went to Carrefour Subang lar! Yap, all the way from 1U. To do what you ask? Babe want to buy aquarium there because it is cheap, 2feet aquarium for RM45 (But end up we buy more than that....*roll eyes and shake head*).

I actually have a meeting at 6pm yesterday but due to my colleague R ingenuity, the meeting was over in 10minutes. But I cannot go back yet ler. I told babe to leave his office late so that he dont have to wait too long for me mar. How I know the meeting finished even earlier than his usual pick-me-up-time. On top of that, when I called him at 6.15pm, it was raining really heavily and he cant leave his office without getting soak.

So, I went to 1U lor to walk around searching for more ribbons while waiting. I was hoping that Kee is still around since she mentioned that she wanted to go shopping after work as well but she was already almost at her car when I called. Anyway, didn't buy anything at all. The ribbons are so darn expensive. 2 meters for more than RM10! That is what I called insane and cut-throat. Also, wasted quite alot of time at Coldstorage queuing to pay for the drink that babe ordered me to buy for me...

By the time he picked me up, it was already 7pm and we hear on the mix.fm the usual rush hour jam is still happening at LDP and the road to Subang. We decided to go for dinner at the nearby economy rice shop while waiting for the rush hour jam to subside. By the time we arrived Carrefour Subang, it was closed to 8pm but no problem there since not much people is around on weekdays! Blissful! hahaha.

Walked around checking out the electrical stuff first. Hoping to find water heater or combination microwave at bargain. But nothing lor! Then we go straight to the aquarium section. As I said, initially we planned to go there to get the 2 feet aquarium and JUST the aquarium which cost RM45. I thought, why not. That is cheap and he just need to find a cupboard to put the aquarium on and I can USE the cupboard to store some of the stuff at home.

I should have known that things will never go as plan when it comes to shopping for hobby and interest. We end up buying a full set of fish rearing equipment, a 2 feet aquarium that comes with the plastic cover, a filter pump and a stand for the aquarium to sit on. Total damage, RM190. Oh, plus sponge for the filter and anti-chlorine. So, total is RM193. We paid and went home immediately after that. Babe wants to go back and set up his new toy!

All the way back, he keep asking what fish to keep! He cant make up his mind lar. Awhile ariwana (sp?), then changed his mind and thought of goldfish and then changed his mind again back to ariwana. Goodness! Like little boy! hahaha! But I am happy he is happy lar. Then keep mumbling that we should have at least gotten a small small fish to put in the aquarium first. I stopped him from buying the fish at Carrefour because (1) We are gonna be in Kch for 2wks. Who take care? and (2) The aquarium needs to be clean and water need to be filtered first lar or else the fishes all die lar!

Does this mean that I have an excuse to get a small toy dog as pet????

Actually, you're better off buying aquarium sets at those aquarium shops, in PJ, and even in Klang, because they are cheaper. :-)

I used to LOVE raring fishes when I was younger, particularly the predator called Toman Harimau. :-)

jenjen,
Cannot blame lah. If buy aquarium only without those filter and stuff, how are you going to have fish swimming in there? Hahaha! But I can tell you, it's more cheaper than to buy a doggy. I'm like you, I want doggy!
