望梅止渴

It’s amazing how I get to ‘feel’ these Chinese idioms literary play out for me.

<<望梅止渴>> is not an idiom I have used or thought about frequently but somehow, it just came to my mind these few days. For the past two days, I’ve felt an irresistable urge to walk by the pet shop near the Novena MRT entrance to take a look at the hamsters (i.e. where we bought Pu & Ding). I was looking for the yellow puddings, but I only saw one the day before but none yesterday.

There was this white one in a really small cage which caught my attention. I looked at her (him/ her?) playing around in her cage & I looked at her face. She looks sooo different from Pupu & Dingding..

On Thurs, Ann Kok on the 9pm drama serial decided to take some hamsters out of their cage to “let them have some freedom”. I watched with bated breath as she took two of the chubby white hamsters out from their cage & Yuan commented that they look very fat. I miss the feeling of carrying Pu & Ding out of their cage too..

Not sure whether satisfying my need to look at hamsters is actually helping me or making me feel worse. I’m still harbouring hopes of seeing Ding alive again which is &^%&((*&^%..

    *Hugz* Maybe you should start planning for your short get-a-way at the end of the year? Fill your mind with other things… I’m planning a short get-a-way to Sentosa, the hotel that Stewie stayed the last time.
