Goodbye Mr Lee.

 

Twice

All ah bee and fomfomfom did today was go to the tribute site and then come back and play plant vs zombies. I don't know if that's a cure for grief, but I'm feeling very neglected. Never mind, it's ok. It's a sad and special week.

At least I get to go down twice a day now. They were wondering how it came to be established, but I told them two sparrows make a spring and after they brought me down in the evening twice, it became a rule.

I'm so clever.

 

Can't let go

So it was ah bee's turn to go pay her respects today. Yesterday cha only had to queue for 40 minutes but ah bee was there for nearly 6 hours before she got in today. It's nothing; my mamas would have stood in line for a week if that's what it took.

It's heartbreaking, seeing all the old people who can hardly walk, kneeling and prostrating in front of the coffin. They know what life was like before Mr Lee.

We are so lucky to have had him.

 

Never too much

Fomfomfom kissed me good morning and licked her lips and then asked how did I manage to get eye gunk on top of my head at 7 in the morning. Hee.

Of course they watched tv all day on Singapore's history and ah ma mentioned that she had donated fifty cents back then during the big bukit ho swee fire. Ah bee was tickled but I thought that was very nice of ah ma to have saved up for it.

Ah bee went out and bought more flowers. We need lots and lots of flowers for Mr Lee.

 

A nation grieves

They brought me down at 6 this morning coz today Fomfomfom and Ah bee had to leave real early to go stand on the street to watch the funeral procession. Fomfomfom somehow found herself at the parliament house so she started queuing to get in to pay her respects long before the hearse arrived. She managed to do that after 3 hours. We heard the queues got so long after that people were waiting 8 hours to get in. But that is nothing really; my mamas would have stood in line for days if they had to.

While Fomfomfom was queuing at the parliament house, Ah bee stood by the road and waited for the gun carriage to go by. People were watching the procession online and the moment the crowds heard the bagpipes playing Auld Lang Syne, people started weeping. I was watching it at home with Cha and Ah ma and it was tragic.

Later Ah bee and Ah ma went to a community tribute centre to pay their respects and Cha went separately after that. Fomfomfom had gone yesterday.

I got to wake up real early tomorrow again coz Cha is going bright and early to the parliament house. Ah bee says she's going on Friday.

It's the least anyone can do.

 

The greatest man

We are still very sad over our founding father's passing. Ah bee spent all day reading the papers, and then they spent all evening and all night watching tv. No one bothered with me. But it's ok, I don't mind.

They tell me tomorrow they're going to stand on the street and weep as the hearse goes to parliament house. They offered to bring me there in a plastic bag.

I think I'll just stay at home with Cha.

 

RIP Mr Lee

Today is a very sad day for Singapore. We are very sad.

A handheld vacuum cleaner was delivered to our house today and ah bee started it up right away. It was loud and it frightened me. I'm going to tell fomfomfom it's banned and she can only use the broom to sweep the floor.

They also bought a black box thing that lets them watch illegal things on the Telly and they keep promising to let me watch Gummy Bears. It's been 3 days and I only heard the gummy song once.

I'm going to call the police and tell them about the illegal things they do.

 

I smell so nice

Today Fomfomfom tried to trim the hair under my paws. Only she didn't charge the shaver so it ran out of juice quite quickly. She got angry at her own incompetency and then she told everyone I was uncooperative. I only snarled at her a couple of times, I don't know what her problem is.

And then Ah ma gave me a bath and I'm all fluffy again. I haven't had an Ah ma special in over a month so it feels real good.

I love ah ma.

 

Trots trots

My hind legs are weak so they say I must eat some pig's trotters to strengthen them. I don't think eating legs to strengthen legs make sense, but I'm not complaining. Today ah ma went to the market and bought a front pig's paw for me. Then she boiled it real long in water and I got 2 pieces steaming hot.

Yummers.
