Cherimoya, Chewy and ME

Cotton is not that obsessed with Cherimoya unlike me. So she's seldom seen with her.

Chewy is pretty neutral... just quite a busybody when it comes to picture taking.

I got so pissed that Mom kept on clicking and clicking MY Cherimoya with Chewy that I made sure I (her ever-so-faithful personal bodyguard) rushed forward to be the picture. HMPH.

Lil' Apple House, Lil' Cherimoya

Pardon Mom for the flooding of Cherimoya's posts. You see, Mom says that hamsters don't live very long lives (not that we live very long too like humans), probably 2 to 3 years usually or 5 years MAX which is really very old for a syrian hamster. So Mom just wants to capture moments of Cherimoya as much as possible.

And Cherimoya is extremely special to Mom (and me too! I LOVE Cherimoya so muchie that I'm her 24/7 personal bodyguard!), for a few good reasons... 

see me? all u nid to do is to shout ''cherimoya!!'' or
''where's cherimoya?!''
and i'll be there faster than lightning, superman or spiderman

cherimoya is smiling. mom is always smiling when she sees this pix

Cherimoya aka Custard Apple and our Cherimoya's New 2nd Hideout

Don't think a picture of a cherimoya has been posted as yet. Dad found a lil' cute 2nd hideout for Cherimoya today and it was the last piece on sale at only S$6 from S$9.95. It wasn't sold at a petshop nor is it for a hamster specifically. It's actually a pen-holder! More details below.

Lucky for us its green too and not red.


''What does a cherimoya taste like? A perfectly ripe cherimoya is an intoxicating combination of tropical flavors like bananas, coconut, strawberries, and mangoes. Some people also taste pineapple and papayas. Don't think one fruit could possibly have all of those ambrosial flavors? Then try one to see for yourself.''


''Outside, it looks like what your fertile imagination would say is a dinosaur egg, with its matte green shingled skin, but once you thwack it open, it reveals a creamy ivory colored flesh that is naturally sweet, with a bit of a hint of pineapple, or mango, or maybe peach, or all three. Hmmm…maybe even a pina colada flavor, without the booze! A few large black seeds are easily flung out of the way. There’s no need for a bowl, either. Just scoop straight from the skin and into your gaping maw, like you would a melon.''

How to eat a cherimoya, the BEST fruit in the world!

Here's our lil' Cherimoya in her new green apple house! It's her 2nd hideout apart from the typical pink one.

74 days young today! and only approx. 100g

''helllooo? me cherimoya in new housie.
mommy says this best housie she find for cherimoya
because suits cherimoya's name.

next time u chew chew (custard) apple,
imagine me cherimoya inside,okie?''

The apple pen-holder is available in red and green from Typo. Link to their FB:

The Face of CUTE

Cherimoya's pretty small for a 61 days young syrian. But it's okay... because she runs on her wheel alot and eats only organic fresh veg/seeds/nuts/grains etc. Yeaps, she's a vegetarian hammie and doesn't like commercial hamster foods sold in a pack.

mom says this is THE face of cute. and i SO agree

 How much Cherimoya has grown! And so beautifully too. Mom thinks she looks so different... but thats cuz their color will continue to darken as they grow revealing their true color.. so Mom is hoping her color (red or orange) will be more intense and vibrant. She'll still be growing in both size and weight till she's about 4 or 5 months young.

Mom is simply so thankful and ecstatic to have found Cherimoya's breeder and gotten her. They're still in touch with one another and Mom updates her on Cherimoya with pix and all and she's always sharing info with Mom. She's pretty glad that Cherimoya's with Mom because she gets fresh organic foods and has us for companions! (syrian hamsters are solitary animals so they can't live together with their kind)

Cherimoya makes everyone around her happy! And she's definitely one beautiful and tame syrian hammie. If there's a hamster show in Singapore like in the US... Mom would surely enter her because her color is actually quite even and nice.
