It’s Ratatouille and Year of Rat

I could smell something rotten in the store room.

My MIL told me HE ate my biscuit on the table.

I found out that HE drank two boxes of milk, one box of soyamilk. HE ate Jonathan boy’s cereals.

Again, I found out that HE took the whole pack of Jonathan boy’s cereal and the plastic bag is no where to be found. HE ate the oats I just bought few days ago.

That’s it! I have to go after HIM.

Tada!!! Gotcha!


This is the second time a rat came in to our house and moreover ate our food. The first rat was much bigger and he could jump up to the dining table and grab the whole loaf of bread. We couldn’t locate the rat so have to poison him and later saw him floating in the drain. Yucks!

This time, this rat is smaller. Darling knocked at all the racks in the store room and suddenly the rat jump out and both of us scared like mad (haha…now I know Darling is also afraid of rat). He knocked again and the rat ran out of the store room across my leg and hid behind the cabinet. Aaaaahhh!!! Jonathan boy got frightened by our screams. Quickly asked MIL to pick him up from the floor. Darling was smart enough to put the rat trap at the other end of the cabinet while we knock and shake the cabinet to scare him.

First attempt…he ran out from the cabinet and in to the trap but I we didn’t manage to close the trap on time so he ran back to the cabinet.

Second attempt…one person get ready to close the trap while the other do all the knocking and shaking to force that rat out.

What a drama and both of us were sweating all over. When we caught him, he is very fierce. He squeeked and bit the trap trying to release himself. You wouldn’t want to know how we handle him after that…
