This & That Including What Ails

Bird Man

on January 10, 2017

My ex colleague is now in between jobs. 

We both shoved our resignation letters to Electrical Lord in December last year!

We are both happier 😊

I have found a job thankfully but he has not found one just yet.

He loves birds and is an avid avian fan.

Further, he has started an online bird shop selling peripherals for keeping birds as pets.

From bird cages to feed, water bowls, birds etc….E Commerce is the way to go. It keeps him busy at doing what he loves and it gives him some pocket change tooπŸ˜‰

Sunday, he took part in a bird singing contest. 

He enrolled 2 of his flock of 12 birds in the bird singing contest held at Bedok Reservoir Park.

Lush greenery and quite well landscaped is Bedok Reservoir Park.

I have not been to this park and appreciated the photos he sent me.

The vertical poles are for bird lovers to hang their bird cages and let their pet birds sing their lungs out to the bird appreciators and or owners seated basked in the serenity of bird singing ballads.

I guess it is also let the birds have a day out in the sun, amongst the trees as if having a picnic for birds! These birds are pets and caged in apartments or flats with their owners.

These shelters are built for bird singing contests or for bird owners to hang their bird cages in a sheltered area if it rains or the weather gets too hot!

This week we have been having temperatures of 35.1C – this has to be a new hottest record!

In the sweltering heat, what is good is laundry drying within 2 hours of washing.

What is bad is we all sweat like pigs!! 

Met service blames it on low pressure front that is plaguing Thailand with floods and us here the opposite…dry hpt humid summer heat in supposedly cooler months of January to March.

I digress…back to birds….all about birds or our fair feathered friends…

I guess people walk dogs and bird owners take their pet birds out for walks too ha ha! So these structures in parks or government housing estates would exist to cater to their hobbies.

Above is a singing bird contest that Bird Man participated last Sunday.

He won 2 prizes; 2nd and 3rd placings for his 2 prized China Thrushes.

He is happy to have left Evil Lord.

His pet birds keep him happy.

Just like my inanimate furball Garfield keeps me happy.

To each their own….pets…they are a joy in our lives 😊 alive or inanimate πŸ˜‰

All photos are courtesy of Bird Man who proudly sent them to me when he won the contest on Sunday itself!

Congrats Bird Man!!
