I Want A Dinosaur For Pet

I've been 'catching snake' too much in the last couple of days that my works had been piling up so had to catch up thus blogging had to be put in the back burner. But nevertheless I've managed to catch up so here I am again!

Taking a break from the Commonwealth Games and went back to Festival Melbourne2006 to get a bit of R&R and I was greeted with a creature from our past, a dinosaur!


I believe this is a herbivorous dinosaur so it is vegetarian and we're all safe! Its very popular with the kids though, big and small. It walked aound Alexandra Gardens sniffing everyone and sticking its nose into everything.


Ok if you really must spoil it for all its actually a person inside a suit and manipulated some mechanisms to move its head, open its small mouth, blink its eyes and even make a small growl! Ain't it cool! I want a dinosaur for pet now, if it was real and just eat plants...


...but not if it was a T-Rex! This is a carnivorous dinosaur and it eats anything that moves! Bigger than the previous one it has to be animated by 2 persons, one to walk it around and the other to move its head, open its massive mouth to show its enormous teeth, blink its eyes and roar out loud when its angry!


Still the kids love it! Everywhere it went children would follow wanting to touch it, growl at it and provoke it to bite them! Just pretend its not a model operated by 2 people and enjoy the terror!

This is just one of the many attractions happening down at Festival Melbourne2006 last night when we went to Alexandra Gardens for the free show at the Big Top which hopefully I'll post next.

Stargazer said...

Wow! Looks darn real! But I couldn't find the connection between dinosaurs and the Commonwealth Games! Hehe...

I was that vegetarian one! It can keep the garden neat and tidy! And Amelia's right, great photo-taking! :)

Jeremy C said...

same here - what's the connection between dinosaur and the games? the athelets who fail to deliver a medal get gobbled up, izzit?

yeah, agree with stargazer, the vegetarian one would definitely come in handy!

Wuching said...

amelia: oh, i thot u had a big backyard to fit both of them

stargazer: there's no connection, just part of the festival down the river

jeremy: u guessed right!

Helen said...

Cool. Too bad they didn't go all the way with the men and women in animal skin.....

suituapui said...

che-cheh: *roll eyes!

KpgNangkaBoy said...

All this dinosaur talk....i keep imagining STP and QV as Fred Flintstone and Barney. I suppose Amelia can be Wilma and JC can be Betty?? kahkah. Instead of Bedrock, I suppose they'll be living in Brokeback. hehe.

Wuching said...

KNB: u have very good imagination, u should write the script for my next movie, speaking of movie i think its about time i make another one starring JC again..what say you?

QuaVadis said...

KNB HAHAHAHA good sense of imagination. Hmmm..Wuching..yes..I think its time for a brief respite from the Commonwealth game and have a little honest fun and laughter hahahaha

Hey..those who have the Star today..check out page 4 of the National News....opening of the new low cost terminal...and check out the pics...at first glance I tot QE2 was also present at the opening..until i saw the goatee... WTF is Datuk Bashir Ahmad wearing a pink hat and holding a bag and in a top that sooo reminds me of Her Majesty???

Wuching..lets put it this way, STP is more than half a Pitan Nui age....so go figure how old he is..tat's why I said he prehistoric already...hahaha...and another thing to know he's old...his Idol at the time of his youth is now known as Sir Cliff Richard.... STP..should I tell them whats your confirmation name hahahahahahahha :P oooh nasty nasty hahahahaha yeah!! Its Friday!!

Wuching said...

QV: what's pitan nui? i recall me listening to cliff richard too so i'm still not convinced he's that old!

QuaVadis said...

Pitan Nui aka Century eggs, you know, those black coloured eggs, that gelatinous in character usually taken with porridge.

So, if Pitan Nui is also known as Century Eggs, so half a Pitan nui age is half a century.so you get the hint..u know, someone who is about to hit the age of mandatory retirement....hahahahahaha...oh man..I'm cruel....well, you can recall that you listened to Cliff Richard, but I dnt think he was your Idol rite, after all, if you stayed in Sibu, the only Radio Station we had was Radio Sarawak and when our parents picked us up from school, what do we hear, but golden oldies being blasted over the airwaves...that wld explain why KNB is such a pro in singing really golden Oldies.. hehahaha..not forgetting to mention myself of course hahahah

suituapui said...

See QV! Nobodu believes u! I sound SO young bah! Ha ha ha! KNB so bad! JC becomes Betty!! Hilarious!

QuaVadis said...

HAHAHAAHHAAHAHA yes..I know..............."nudge nudge" hahahahahahahhaha.......well, you are suffering from the classic case of Sik tauk dirik tua hahahaha....for wuching's convenience I translate that... sik tauk dirik tua means don't know that you are old hahahaha

Wuching said...
