A Bird Tale

One day, our nanny came home with…a parrot. Yes. A parrot.

It was no trouble really because the kids love to have pets. The trouble was, it came in a cage made of really thin sticks. And before we knew it, it got out of the cage. Lucky for us, it got stuck amongst our  mineral  water bottles. So you can just imagine how that afternoon went — Operation: Catch the Parrot. And of course, find a dang cage!

That same afternoon, we found ourselves at District 5. photo image-09fde32de4bae82dd6739b72977288b822136eb6c893cbd5d24957e8531c49e0-V_zps89ecb2d7.jpg

Good thing we chanced upon the Hong Kong Cafe whose owner was also taking care of some birds. He told us where to find some cages.  photo image-0840b9be3c81792222cb07a138109f2a3af89d80678e235e77eb04b9bc4bf21d-V_zpse26d4a5a.jpg

The bird shop was teeming with birds and crickets!

And worms! *shudders*

Oh and they’ve got hamsters too!

But we were just glad to pick a bird cage. photo image-cb845eb3fe76259287b847db4094d840061ef23577707c162de4ac09ace2c823-V_zps2b75b35e.jpg

I think our parrot, Jojo, was happy of the cage too after spending most of the afternoon under an upside down laundry basket in the toilet. 😛 Talk about animal cruelty.
