i spent hours in a pet shop today, i was attracted by... (not the salesgirl!!) but the tortoises.
india star tortoises...
ouch!!! *mrs Boleh-man knocked my head*
i have been seeing it for quite some time already, especially at the high-end, expensive-looked pet shops. as it is an endangered species, sort of illegal to sell it. however after some not-so-extensive net search, this species is mostly breed in-house. it is hard to get the wild tortoise nowadays. after further confirmation with the shop-keeper, it is not a criminal to keep this as pet. fuiyooo... *wipe my sweat*
since it is so "rare", it comes with a huge price tag! i was scared away most of the time with the tag previously. hai, this time... i couldnt resist the temptation. once i saw it again, i fall in love.... to it.
the devil in myself was fighting... urging me to buy them.
think, think, think... looked here and there...
finally... (after getting approval from mrs Boleh-man)
i managed to bargain for cheaper price, from rm80 to rm68 each. wah! it is a huge amount for a pet (not really, its pets actually..) heck! i just bought it!!! (a pair, actually...) my friend, chay, also got himself a pair.
woahahahaha! i have new occupants in my room now. im waiting for mrs Boleh-man to name them...
