Your Fish Knows

In the news this week....

BANTING: The saying a dog is a man’s best friend, may now be even applicable to a pet fish – at least in the case of Petronas marketing manager Puspanathan Subramaniam, who boarded the MH370.

His father Subramaniam Gurusa­my said the pet arowana fish was sluggish and had refused to eat for over five days.

“The fish now only eats if I prop my son’s photo next to the aquarium,” said Subramaniam, 60, who became a security guard after retiring as a construction worker five years ago.

The fish, however, is not the only one showing signs of misery.

When Puspanathan was leaving for the airport on March 8, his three-year-old son Harish Varman had clung to his legs and begged him not to go.

“My son travels regularly for work and my grandson had never cried and pleaded with his father this way before,” a distraught Subra­maniam said.

He said his son had also not been too keen to go on the business trip and requested his office to shorten the duration of his stay in China.

“The business trip was supposed to be for two weeks but my son got it shortened to a week as he did not want to be away from his family that long,” he said at his house in Telok Panglima Garang near here.

According to Subramaniam, his home was now a listless dungeon, with family members fearing every waking moment and praying there would be no tragic news.

“My wife and I are starting to feel numb inside not knowing what’s happened to our son,” he said.

Subramaniam and his wife A. Amirtham, 60, also have a 26-year-old daughter named Theanmoli.

Subramaniam said he never imagined he and Amirtham would have to go through such “emotional torture” in their twilight years.

“We were happy that both our children had done well in their studies as our efforts to prevent them from leading the lives our grandparents had led confined in the estate had paid off,” he said.

He recounted how both he and Amirtham, who were classmates in primary school, had meticulously planned to get their children out of the Carey Island estate where they were brought up.

Subramaniam said they decided he had to be the one to get the ball rolling, so he resigned from his estate job and ‘came out’ to work as a construction worker.

Amirtham worked in the estate clinic as an attendant and the family continued living in Carey Island.

“My wife and I bought our house five years ago and our son is the one who makes the monthly housing loan instalment.

“He also pays our utility bills and buys the monthly groceries,” he said.

I've always been told by fish owners, that their fish will refuse food, become restless, or die, prior to something bad happening to them. Many of my friends had their family members/loved ones passing away, weeks after their fish died. It's apparently like an indication and sign of bad luck. It may be coincidental, but it had happened way too often to my knowledge. I've seen similar occurrence with pets, like dogs and cats. Not sure how to explain this circumstantial phenomenon. Perhaps it may not be as coincidental as we may think. And this story here just goes to show that fishes are more than just creatures swimming in your tank. They have feelings, intelligence and emotional attachment to their owners. My heart breaks for Puspanathan's family and the families of everyone on board MH370. Your loved ones miss you...EVERYONE :'(

A Change Of Career For My Security Dog

Chila has opted for a change of career after realising her job as a guard dog is far from glamorous and lacking bite. She was inspired by none other than.........


Name: Mahaguru Raja Bomoh Chila

Origin: From a bottle. According to Christina Aguilera, you gotta rub her the right way.

Some of her highest accomplishments: 

i) She's the only person in history who ordered a tosai in KFC and got it. 

ii) When Chila cuts herself, Rajinikanth's onions will cry. 

ii) She can poop a solid diarrhea while killing two stones with one bird.

At the moment, she's looking for assistants to help her 'row' the magic carpet with a spade. But if you ain't good enough, she'll call a spade a spade.

Watch her full interview on this show below. 

Date and time? Can't tell coz you remember this guy?

I Still Love You

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said " it's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.

Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me.

One of the most beautiful poems I've ever read. Had me in tears before the halfway mark. The memories are gushing in. Memories of all the furkids I raised and how much I cried every time they left me. Be it dogs or cats, it's never easy to deal with their passing, especially when you raised them like your children. I always believed they're watching over me and still living around me. They're my guardian angels. They promised  me eternal love, and they'll never forsake that. This one is for all of us who have lost our furkids. :"")
