My pet turtle died of possibly natural causes on Thursday afternoon.
I've had her for at least 3 years but in that time, only stayed with me for maybe.. half a year tops.
The rest of the time was spent at former friend's house and latterly at Yeok Cheng's where she has been caring for her since 2005.

So on Thursday night, we met up at Yeok Cheng's house and buried her.
Suggestions to toss her into a pond/lake/ditch or cremation were mooted but I gave them my 'aghast' look.
So a burial it was.
the initial spade wasn't made too well.. It got bent in a jiffy.
The 'cangkul' (don't know english name) was much handier.
I even have a video of the process but I'm not sure if I should bother YouTube-ing it.

Anyway.. Thanks to Chen Hoe for most of his digging hard work, Goblok has a final resting place.

The process.. The process..

Burying Goblok
The ending.. The ending..

Tiny tombstone.

something like that,
due to space constraints and incompatibility of various pets.

one will eat the other
