One Day in The Park – Part 2

I AM BACK!!!!! \(^_^)/

After a looooong holiday, I am finally back at work…which mean back into active blogging again ;)

A couple of weeks ago, I had shared One Day In The Park – Part 1, now it’s time to share the PART 2 of that day. They always go to school parks at least once a week. Usually, nothing much happened…well I did get amazingly cute photos of them every time they had their walk in the park which I shared mostly in instagram (I will share the best here one day).

However on this one special day we had 2 things happening, one curious cat and letting my little ones walk around the bushes…I don’t usually do that because I don’t want to loose them but I guess once in a while it’s okay ;)

There is one photo with the cat that I forgot to share in Part 1. Here’s the cat seriously looking at Kroten while Kroten didn’t care at all with her.


After the cat left, the adventure of the little ones began!!

No matter how many times I put Kurome and Papoe together, they ALWAYS walk toward different direction. It also happened that day. Continue reading

Eid Mubarak (Eid al-Fitr 1456 Hijriah)


Happy Eid-ul Fitr to all Muslims around the world, may Allah bless our life forever.

To all my non Muslim friends, in this happy day I wish you all abundant happiness throughout your life. I am blessed to have such nice friends like you :)

This is the day of togetherness and forgiveness, please accept our sincere apology to all the wrongdoings we had done to you, both intentionally and unintentionally.

After a month of fasting from the time the sun rises till the time the sun sets, Idhul Fitri (Eid al-Fitr in Indonesian language) is always a joyful moment for us. Hope everyone around the world feel the same. All my pray goes to all the Muslim in conflict countries, may Allah always shines upon you in your hard times. Amin.

One Day in The Park – Part 1

This happened a week before the holiday started but I had no time to write about this till today. It’s going to be a story with lots of pictures…so I divided it into two parts.

I have been taking them to the school’s park every Saturday (every Wednesday and Saturday during the holiday as those were the times when I visited my dorm). Usually, there’s nothing much happen but that day…something different happened ;)

This is how the park look like:

War Against Fungus

Kroten has always had problems with her shell. When I brought her home, she had some spots showing shell rot. As she grows up, she started having fungus which I finally able to get rid off ( Tending my fungus )…but this annoying fungus somehow came back with a vengeance, it came back UNDER Kroten’s scutes, how I am going to cure that?

A very helpful post at under the title History of Curing a Turtle’s Shell gave me hope of curing Kroten’s shell. But even so, I will have to wait for her to shed all her retaining scutes. She has been doing really well lately and more scutes are loosing now :)

Here are pictures to show the progress of Kroten’s shell:

You can see in these two pics how fungus had infected Kroten’s shell and it lies under her retaining scutes.

Plastron Pattern

Hello Friends :)

It’s been a while since I wrote a post. Mommy is currently on holiday so she stays at her brother’s house HOWEVER since we are always on her mind, she comes every three days to her dorm to check on us and to play with us :)

If there are other peoples in the dorm, she would stay for a night (she won’t stay if no one is in the dorm, she says the dorm is too spooky). Last night she stayed with us… yeaaa \(^_^)/ I slept with her last night and after writing this we will go to the park to enjoy the sunlight :)

I am here to share part of our series post (or is it post series??) called Our Differences. We, turtles, have different Plastron pattern…even the same species have different patterns (with some similarity). Note: All borrowed pictures are smaller than ours so that you have to click on the image to see the original pictures ;)

Let’s begin with my plastron ;)

13 Getting Down and Dirty Pictures – part 2

School’s holiday is already started and it’s going to be a very long holiday, about 1.5 month. For Indonesia, that is very long as we usually only have 2 week holiday. This long holiday is because of Fasting Month (Ramadhan) which will start tomorrow, therefore before I begin my post I would like to say:

Happy Ramadhan to all Muslims around the world. In this month of blessings, may Allah always guards us from evil deeds.

However, holiday means that I have to leave my babies alone in the dorm. I have to go back to my brother’s house. I will be visiting my dorm every once in three days so that I can spend time with them. I don’t want to stay in the dorm because there’s no one during holiday and it’s kinda spooky here…so I am going to miss my babies.

Last month, I shared 13 pictures of my turtles with the camera on their level. On that post I mentioned that those 13 pics aren’t the best…For me, these next 13 pictures are the best, these pictures shows how adorable they are and that’s why I love them so much.

Kame always enjoyed sleeping on any piece of fabric, here are pictures of her enjoying her new ‘bed;)


“Is this new, Mom?”
