Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

My New Pets: Sea Monkeys!

6.25.2010

the famous sea monkeys! instant pets!

i want this box kit!!!

I have Sea Monkey pets rm18

Since young, I was fascinated with Sea Monkeys. It started with the colorful mermaid like cartoons that decorated the box of Sea Monkeys at ToysRus! The idea of having instant pets is really cool for me. I did buy a box, it came with a cool looking aquarium and sachets of the sea monkey eggs, food and water conditioning powder. I fail at caring for them, I didn't understand what they needed, soon the water got too dirty and I had to pour them away.

Sea Monkey Starter Kit

Walking around 1utama, I saw the Rent A Box shop. They're selling Sea Monkey kits for RM18! that's cheaper than the Sea Monkeys sold at ToysRus. Giving it another go, I bought the kit, it comes with a mini pink aquarium, 3 sachets (sea monkey eggs, food and water conditioning powder) and a instruction sheet.

Day 1: Waiting for Eggs to hatch

I just poured my sea monkeys eggs into the mini aquarium. Now after a few hours, my Sea Monkeys will come to life! I hope I did the right thing here hmmm. Stay tune!

watch it on youtube

From wikipedia:

Sea-Monkeys is the brand name for artemia sold in hatching kits, as a novelty aquarium pet aimed at children, in the United States and theUnited Kingdom since 1960.[1] They are a variant of brine shrimp or Artemia salina, a species which enters cryptobiosis, a natural state ofsuspended animation, allowing their cysts (dormant saclike embryos) to be distributed and sold as a dry powder. When the "powder" is poured into saltwater, the Sea-Monkeys start to come out of their cysts.

In the United Kingdom in the 1970s they were also sold as "Artful Arties".[2]
