The Menjalara Lake


The timid Ah Kuai


Ah Kuai before leaping out into the lake


"Here I come, my sisters"


Ah Kuai saying his last goodbye

Last 2 weeks ago, Calvin and I went to set his precious tortoise free in a nearby lake in Menjalara, Kepong. Well, Ah Kuai is growing larger day by day and she needs more space to swim about, and since she's all lonely and alone in the huge water vase, I suggested to Calv to let her roam more freely in a lake. Of course, Calv feels sad to let her go, but, it is for a better she. Besides, there are many more other tortoises can be found in that lake, many people had freed theirs too. So perhaps Ah Kuai could have some new friends to play with and mate with all the males she wants.

Anyway, I promised Calv that he could get himself another 2 more of them from the pet shop. We will wait till they are grown again and set them free. ;)

It is another Friday today and so I shall leave the weekend with a nice song from Bertie Higgins, Casablanca, ;) another pick from the famous 8o's. Have an enjoyable weekend and take good rests. Stay away from the rain and try not to get yourself sick. ;) Have fun!





I fell in love with you watching Casablanca
Back row of the drive in show in the flickering light
Popcorn and cokes beneath the stars became champagne and caviar
Making love on a long hot summers night

I thought you fell in love with me watching Casablance
Holding hands 'neath the paddle fans in Rick's Candle lit cafe
Hiding in the shadows from the spies. Moroccan moonlight in your eyes
Making magic at the movies in my old chevrolet

Oh! A kiss is still a kiss in Casablanca
But a kiss is not a kiss without your sigh
Please come back to me in Casablanca
I love you more and more each day as time goes by

I guess there're many broken hearts in Casablanca
You know I've never really been there. so, I don't know
I guess our love story will never be seen on the big wide silver screen
But it hurt just as bad when I had to watch you go

Oh! A kiss is still a kiss in Casablanca
But a kiss is not a kiss without your sigh
Please come back to me in Casablanca
I love you more and more each day as time goes by
Oh! A kiss is still a kiss in Casablanca
But a kiss is not a kiss without your sigh

Please come back to me in Casablanca
I love you more and more each day as time goes by
I love you more and more each day as time goes by

Nice...

I saw that photo of the pond. It's quite clean around the perimeters. Will he be able to find food?

Calvin's Wife said...

Endoh, hie there... It is kinda clean, I guess... Well, apart from tortoises, there's plenty of fishes and other weird things that I wouldn't know can be found in that pond... ;P. So we are not worried bout that.
