How to Care for Your Pet Rabbit 101 [Basis Care]

After years of not having a pet to love, I got myself a cute bunny right after I finished my first internship. The job was arduous and I am glad I am done with it. So to reward myself with a cute rabbit. 

How I got my bunny

Before we continue, I have a little story to tell you guys. So I went to the nearest pet store after school (yes, it was the day I finished my internship and also the same day I started school). I found a cute droppy ear bunny that I liked. So I asked the store assistant to get it out of the cage for me. I was really excited and all. Then the lady asked me if I have a bunny cage to which I replied Yes. She asked me for the size of the cage and I told her it was a decent size cage which I bought long time ago from a pet store. Then, surprisingly, the store assistant refused to sell me the bunny unless I buy their $130 cage. I was like "SAY WHAT?" Then she said my cage is too small and how I would feel if someone shut me in a closet. I was like "Woah... what... the... this is definitely NOT the type of customer service I am used to." So I argued that I will get a bigger cage once I'm bigger and I really wanted the bunny today because it's a significant day in my life to me. But the lady downright refused to sell me the bunny! I was kinda shocked. I am usually very patient and all but man... this just takes the cake. 

So I went home, empty-handed and very, very disappointed. My dad saw how depressed I was and drove me to another pet store. We looked around and the bunnies were all born the same day. My dad told me to get the biggest one and I was like "Why? I want to raise it from baby." My dad explained that they are all born the same day and I should get the strongest of the batch, which is the biggest one. I agreed and that's how we got my bunny. He was the biggest, strongest and has softest fur coat. The best thing is that the store assistants were super nice and pleasant, unlike the other one! Also, my dad bought the bunny for me. Double YES! Dad, you are awesome. Seriously. 

Step 1: You must really be determined to love your pet. 

I sincerely care and treasure my bunny, Timber with all my heart. 
Tips: buy/adopt a baby animal you can easily form a bond with. When they are baby, you will feel a sort of parental instinct to care and provide. It is easier to form a bond. 

Step 2: Bond with your pet

With Timber, when introduced him to my home, he was very scared. Instead of putting him in a cage, I let him out to roam my room for a few days. He obviously poo and peed which I have to clean up but it is worthy. Here is why you should do what I did. Your new pet is scared. You don't want to immediately lock him up in a cage/jail. It may feel even more stressed. So in my case, I let him free in my room so he felt less... of a prisoner. He is free to run and jump. 

Also, since he is in the room with you, he recognized you (footsteps, voice) and knows you don't mean harm. That way he is less likely to run for his life the second you go near.

Tips: Let your pet in your room for a few days. You can put your pet on your chest and let it feel your heartbeats. It will increase the bonding.

Step 3: Cage Time

Eventually, your pet has to go to its cage (unless it's a dog/cat then don't cage them). 
Preferably, leave the cage outside where your pet can have fresh air.
Clean their cage every week at least. 

Tips: Stay with your pet for a few minutes while it is adjusting to its new... cage/home. It will feel less abandoned. 






















Step 4: Let your pet free everyday for awhile 

I let Timber out on my fenced backyard everyday for 30 mins under close supervision. At first, started small... like out your room... then out your house... then out your patio... introduce each part of your house slowly so your pet can memorize the familiar places. 

I am confident Timber won't escape because I slowly train him that he can go just as far as the fence. My eyes follow him everywhere when he is out by himself (you don't want your pet to get attacked by wandering cats). Whenever he goes near the fence, I go up to him and steer him around. LOL

Don't be afraid to let your pet out to explore. It will love you even more and you can try to incorporate some sort of discipline. Timber knows that at night, he has to go back to cage. At first, he will stare at me with big eyes and wanting me to let him out. But nope. Now, he knows at night = cage = sleep time


Rabbits are curious creatures. So be at ease and let them explore. They make the cutest expression.

Tips: Let your pet explore one area of your house at a time. If you don't have a yard then let him roam in your house.

Step 5: Keep any wire away from your pet bunny


Tips: Just let your bunny roam at rooms that don't have wire. Or just loop your wire higher than its reach.

For starters, you should just try out these simple steps & tips. It will make your pets happy and your life bright and glorious. Next time, we will talk about bringing your pets with you on a vacation (huh, try that with a bunny) and other pets' funny behaviours. 

Here is a teaser. Happy Timber on a lake-side vacation!!!

Timber, the Destroyer of Figurines

Today, I will show you a compilation of Timber (my sassy rabbit) and my figurines. I was happily blogging my figurines when I noticed a trend. Timber is always attacking my boys! What the... He is probably jealous or something. Still... Timber, you need to staaaaph. My priceless figurines! *Sob* Anyway, behold, Timber the destroyer of plastic men. 
He will steal your soul with his cuteness and crush it!
Even Dante, son of Sparda, hot hon' slayer of demons and pizzaboy, has a tough challenge when it comes to battling a gigantic furry beast in an inescapable cage. 
 Timber doesn't give a damn whether you have demonic blue glowing arm or not. He is going to nibble it to mush. Cuteness alert. 
 In the normal world, you attack monsters with weapons. In Timberland, Timber attacks your weapon.
 Timber: "Move bitch, get out of the way, biaaatch." 
Squall sulked even harder afterward... "I aint no one's bitch." He said. But we don't care cuz he is one.
Don't ever poke poke your finger in places it doesn't belong because you never know when a lightning fast rabbit might just chew it off. Nasty fangs aware.
Now, take a good look at this evil gangsta cutie! He even grows his pair of silly eyebrows. LOOOOL Winter is coming so he is changing his fur coat. He used to be light brown. As you can see the darker brown fur coat is slowly replacing the old fur. So no more excess mohawk hair that I loved so much. Aww well~ But man, he looks retardedly adorable!

Do You Know How to Save up Your Money?

I have always enjoyed keeping track of my finance to the dot. I started this habit when I earned my first paycheck during my first part time job. It's simple and organized. It's never too late to keep track of your earnings and spending. The earlier you start, the better off you will be. Book keeping can be surprisingly simple and efficient.

For Job: 
Create an Excel name: [Job] Salary

In there, you are going to create on the horizontal columns the following: 
  1. The date your paycheck starts
  2. The date your paycheck ends
  3. Payment Date
  4. Rate/Hour (if you are minimum/fixed wage, just drag down the tab)
  5. Hours worked
  6. [4 * 5] 
  7. Vacation pay rate
  8. Vacation pay (it's written on your pay)
  9. Gross income = [6 + 8]
  10. Tax with (simpler when you are doing your income tax next year)
  11. Total deductions (if you pay provincial and federal tax, sum them up)
  12. Net pay = [9 - 11]
Click to enlarge
Trust me. You just have to do this once and you can copy paste this for your next job.

Then of course, you should allocate yourself about 10-20% of your salary to PLAY.
By that, I mean to truly relax yourself. You work hard. You deserve some rest. It doesn't include food, necessity. It's an amount just for you to be happy doing things you like. It could be like treating yourself to spa, go to amusement part, buy fashionable wears...etc.

Create another separate column called "Amount allocated for PLAY (10%) per paycheck.
= 12 * 10%
That is the amount you can spend only. 
If you want, at the bottom of this column, you can put the sum of the amount you spend on PLAY.

You can also dedicate another column for travelling. I allocate another 10% of my paycheck to save up for my future travelling expenses. You can allocate more but 30% should be the max. Don't forget you still have a 10% of "Play". And you still need to save up for future expenses. 


This is my simple trick to be financially organized when it comes to SALARY SAVING. 
I have other methods of keeping track of my money which I will post them in other posts. The earlier you start being financially organized, the better. You won't feel so overwhelmed when you wonder why you are always poor or why your salary is not consistent. So I hope this post will help you! Let me know of your own book keeping habit.

Play Arts Kai Raiden Metal Gear Revengeance

I thought I should blog about my awesome Raiden Play Arts Kai figure from Metal Gear Revengeance. I had wanted this figure for almost 4 months before it was released. I remember stalking all websites for this guy as they were all sold out or overpriced. (note: This is before they re-released). So anyhow, I found it at a reasonably good price and snatched it. The excruciating long wait until the release date + shipping duration was well worthy. This figure officially kicked asses. Check it out. 

I can go on and on about the beautiful details on this figure. I mean look at the armor, it looks sooo real, even though they are all PVC. Amazing.
Raiden came with so many cool accessories. I love the blade, the throwing knives and his sword sheath. 

WHO IS DA BOSS? Come at me, bro!

He comes with his... mask/forehead armor? Basically the front of his hair can pop out. Then you plug this eyeshield into that peg hole. It's kinda funny when you see Raiden without hair when I was interchanging the parts. 
Absolutely smeeexy~ 
Gosh, I love taking photo of Raiden. Every pose he does screams "badass"!!!
I brought Raiden and Nero to a chalet by the lake. Instead of appreciating nature, I was busy drooling after how good Raiden looks. 
BRO HUG!
I don't claim to be a pro photographer but man... these shots are gorgeous. Raiden + nature = EPIC WIN!
Here is a Fabulous Nero with his pink Barbie glasses~ Aww Yis.

I'm so happy to be able to share this post and photos with you guys. Spread the love for Raiden Play Arts Kai yooooo~ Anyway, let me how do you like this figure and the photos in the comments. I look forward to reading them!

Excellent Model POP [Megahouse] Eustass Captain Kid

So after craving for Eustass Kid figure for 7 months, I finally have the guts to buy it. Yes, guts. Because this figure is pretty expensive and the shipping is no joke either. 
I stalked all the online anime websites for the cheapest price. Finally, I got one that is quite decent. 
The retail price for this figure is 12 000 yen which is about $125. And since this figure is more than 2kg, they insisted on shipping on EMS (all stores insist) which is $56 shipping fee. So it would have cost me $175 for one figure. Anyhow, I did some research and got it for 6 000yen and 5400 yen = 11 400 ($118). No regret whatsoever. 

Boy, my shelf is completely full now. Before my anime figurine obsession, it was empty. Anyway, Eustass Kid is quite tall for a figure (with the arm is 38cm) and about 2kg. 

 He comes with 2 interchangeable heads and 2 torsos. The coat and the knife-holder-belt are removable. You only have 1 left arm that is detachable. Above, you have one torso fixed with the gigantic arm. Below is another torso with the regular arm. You can have 4 different combinations with the 2 heads and 2 torso. Personally, I prefer the one above. He looks so much more sinister that way. 

 Strangely enough, he looks different when seen from different angle. It's pretty wicked. But check out those amazing details. My favorite is still his coat. It is one of the heaviest parts of the figurine, the other being the giant arm. I like to keep his coat on because he kinda looks weird topless. I mean the abs is sexy to look at but Eustass Kid in the manga/anime has his coat on, so damn this figure aint gonna stay topless. In all seriously, his abs is pretty a piece of work -- said the shameless fangirl. 

Here is the arm under normal lighting. I think Eustass kid look simply gorgeous 2 years before the time skip. Anyway, maybe they will release a 2 years after figurine later on.  

 The details are incredible. The material is quite solid. So far, nothing seemed to chip off. He can take up quite some space on your shelf. So clean away some junk because this pirate 'king' needs to show off his awesomeness. 

 And that's my favorite head. He looks so evil. Kyaaa~ 
I definitely don't regret buying Eustass Kid. He is currently the most expensive figure in my collection. But hey, it's totally worthy for the amount of details and interchangeable parts that come with it. 

I look forward for more awesome POP figurines. They are just so precious to look at.

Stunning Hotel Fairmont Montebello

Beautiful 5 stars hotel Fairmont Montebello is truly a sight to be awed. It is a fantastic place for family/couple to relax and enjoy what nature has. There are soooo many activities you can do there in the hotel alone! There are indoor/outdoor swimming pools. A cabin for bike rental. A breath-taking lobby to relax and enjoy a casual reading. Horse riding! Private boat yatch...etc. You name them, they have it! I was very fortunate to be able to enjoy 2 days there. It was one of the most beautiful memories I have. 

 This is our hotel room.
 The indoor pool is sooo beautiful on this picture. Too bad when I went there, it was close.
 Fortunately, the outdoor pool is open! We even went to soak in the Jacuzzi after a god swim. 
I went to this little... structure (whose name escapes me) and it was beautifully decorated with hanging plants and stunning flowers. The pictures that we have taken on that spot were marvelous. 

(Note: I don't own the top few photos. They were taken directly from the Fairmont Montebello website. I do own the following photos)
This is by far the largest lobby I have ever seen! It's huuuuuuge. It can probably fit 50 elephants in there no problem!
It's nicely filled with couches and chairs. It's a bit cute and homey when you think about it. It has a very family feel to it... with the dim lighting. You know, a family coaxing on the sofa in front of the fire place.  
This is the diner.

The outside where you can enjoy some yummy BBQ!

Like I said before, the indoor pool was closed... though I enjoyed myself outdoor. The workers were really helpful and charming. 
Yup, you swim next to the river. After a good swim, the best thing to do is to chill on those foldable chairs and watch the river flows. 
I believe this is a private boat yacht. I'm not too certain though. Nevertheless, it's a pretty sight.
 A group of excited family leaving on horse ride. I'm so envious. The horses are really friendly. They let you pet them on their head, neck, side...etc. 
The hotel ground is so vast that you can rent bike and explore every inch of the hotel! 

Well, I truly had a good rest after a relatively stressful year. My advice is that you can find yourself a good deal on some coupon sites that can offer great discounts for high-end places. I have gotten a good deal which includes a trip to the nearby Omega Park and a canoe/kayak by their private mountain lake. It was totally awesome. I would definitely return there when I get a chance.
