This post is insipired by Daniel’s Silver Arowana post.
Back in college, I felt that I am not into petting dogs or other four legged critters or land animals. Maybe because that time, I am still quite devastated back when I was little that our dog Brownie (because he’s brown), died in front of me (he was hit by traffic while playing with me). So in college, a friend/classmate of mine got me interested in fishes.
I cared for many fishes back then. Unfortunately I don’t have any right now (that is why I wanted to have them again). There was a time that I cared for a Malaysian Arowana (Green Arowana).
If I am right, I think I got it for P1500 against a P500 Silver Arowana of the same size. If I had the option (or cash), I will get the Super Red Chilli Arowana of the same size for P5000, lol. Most people attribute the fish of good luck. For me, it was simply beautiful.
During those times, back in 2006, Jonalyn and I got ourselves a pair of Samsung D500. It was not a high end phone that time but still on the higher end of the spectrum. Talk about a couple phone. One day, I was a school as she was at hers too. We keep on constant communication using our new phones. That day, I got a message that she was in SM Fairview on her way home. I kept on texting her until no response came.
Later, I just learned that she was robbed of her two week old phone. She even blamed (thoughtfully) me what happened because I texted her alot. But thank God, nothing bad happened to her. Even if she was
mugged robbed by three men.
On that same day and that same afternoon when the crime happened, my healthy 12-inch Malaysian Arowana, died of unknown reason.
