Trapped Fish. Trapped Hamster.
Stuffs that my mum got back from her Shanghai trip? A few keychain. No ordinary keychain. Not a picture of The Bund. Not a picture of some Towers that seems to look alike in all cities. A keychain with live fish in it.
The Chinese are very creative. And. A little cruel.
These fish survived on those oxygen-and-food-releasing jellies. Estimated lifespan? Weeks to months. But they died on the second day in Singapore.
Let’s have a silent moment for these fish which died in honor for our amusements.
These fish also reminded me of the latest “it” that my sister is currently infatuated with. Bolt, the movie. The fat hamster trapped in a balloon.
The reason behind this fascination?
Sis: Oooo. Look. So cute. So fat. Trapped in this little ball. So cute~~
The real reason?
Sis: Ahhh. They are just in their little own world, stuck in a ball. So harmless. So cute.
Ah. There. That’s the real reason. Cause this freaking hamster is trapped in the ball and it can do no harm to her.
You know my Sister. She is definitely not a fan of animals. More accurately, she fears and dislikes any moving creatures and that includes salivating and crying babies.
