special thanks to kuya joms for the two tetras and 3 red mollies. i am still accepting for sponsors. hehehe.
but now, i bought myself another set up. while i was changing the water of the aquarium for the third time this week, i have realized the effort that i have put into it. the things that i need to buy like water coditioner, filters etc. just to keep the water clean and the fishes alive. then i remembered what my former housemate told me. i am now getting what he is actually pointing out. entering a relationship is just like having and maintaining an aquarium. sometimes we are so amazed with the idea without really understanding the effort and investments that it needs. thus, most of the time, we sensationalize relationships. we just keep on saying that we need to have a boyfriend or girlfriend just for the heck of having one. we are delighted with the picture of romance, partnership, commitment and even sex without actually looking what is underneath it. the worst part of this is, it takes our heart to be broken first before we can realize these things hiding beneath the surface. believe me, i know. for i had my own share of the deal and hoping it would not happen anymore.
the bottomline story is we are all kids desperately wanting a new pet because they are cute, we want to cuddle them, take care of them and what have you. but without really considering our readiness in carrying on the responsibility. thus, this eventually lead us in getting ourselves depress while watching our pet die.
