The doggie in the window

I made a great discovery today. There is a dog living in the window pane. I was out in the balcony this morning with my toy shiu shiu. I wanted to look into the house but I saw another dog staring back at me. I dropped shiu shiu in alarm and started barking at the dog, who barked right back. The dog had a shiu shiu too.

Fomfomfom looked out to see why I was so fierce, and she didn't understand why until she stepped out into the balcony. I showed her the dog and told her I don't bark for no reason. Fomfomfom nodded knowingly and giggled and told ah bee and cha to come and see this new dog in the window.

I was having the fight of my life and there they were giggling. They said I was a good girl and asked me to come in. It was so patronising. I should be barking at them instead.

 

Profits II

I thought about it all weekend. Something wasn't right. How can my profits on 500 ounces of gold be only one lollipop? So I confronted fomfomfom. She was shamed and contrite. Almost in tears, she admitted my profits on last week's great rise in gold was in fact 3 lollipops.

I was pleased that my rightful profits were not denied me. Yet unsettled. Speculation as such could bring about such lewd profits! No wonder people get greedy.

I can feel greed devouring me right now. I'm already thinking of my next great trade. Can't wait.

 

My stummy

Last night at about 2a.m, I rushed out of the room in a great hurry. I ran straight to the balcony and started pacing up and down. Then Cha chased me in but I continued darting around the house. They couldn't quite understand what I was doing; they thought I was hyperactive. Perhaps due to the sugar overload from the pandan cake I had. That is until I started sniffing around in circles. That means I have to go. It took me quite a while to find a satisfactory spot but I went at least. I had the runs. My poor stummy. Must be all the pork. And cake. And crab. Oh that beautiful crab.

So this morning, I went to Ah ma and told her about my rumbling stummy. I got meself some lovin' from Ah ma.

I feel better now.

 

Happy birthday to me!

It is my birthday again today. I am 4 years and 10 months today and I got a slice of pandan chiffon cake. I shared it with fomfomfom and we had it for dessert after dinner.

It was shih tzu day at the vet's today. We had one here, one there, even one baby sleeping on the magazine table. It was disgraceful. But he looked less than a month old so we didn't scold him. We went to see the vet coz we received a rabies vaccination reminder. We thought it was dodgy coz it came with other irrelevant reminders so we thought their computer system probably had rabies. Indeed the vet confirmed the clinic had rabies. And I finally put on some weight. Now I am 5.55kg, fomfomfom is pleased.

At night ah ma came back from her gambling spree and she rang the bell and we opened the door to see her standing with 2 tall caucasian girls. They are our neighbours, on school exchange programmes. They were making pizzas and wanted to borrow a cup of flour. A cup! ah ma exclaimed. Take the whole bag! They were happy and we were happy and we settled to ah ma's heroic tales at the gambling tables.

I waited all night but the girls didn't come by to give me a pizza.

 

One night only

Ah ma is in another country gambling up a storm, and ah gong seems a little lonely. We were all in cha's room, and ah gong was hovering at the door, asking this, then that, then giving advice. Ah bee was entertaining him, fomfomfom was not talking, I was listening carefully, and cha finally threw him out.

I thought he's just a lonely old man who wanted to talk. Ah bee suggested I sleep in ah gong's room tonight, I will listen to him talk all night and then he can tuck me in. It will only be for a night coz ah ma comes back tomorrow and they can go back to enjoying each other's company.

I heard ah ma go off again early this morning, when it was still dark. I scratched the door to ask cha to let me out so I may say goodbye to ah ma, but cha didn't open the door for me. Sigh, ah ma was off on one of her numerous trips, I guess not saying goodbye is no biggie. She does it all the time. The more important thing is I forgot to tell ask ma to bet $50 on big for me.

But I had profits elsewhere. It seems the price of gold went up today, so I told fomfomfom that I will take the profits on the 500 ounces of gold I told her to buy yesterday. Fomfomfom tried to protest I didn't tell her to buy anything yesterday but I would not have it. I asked ah bee to calculate the profits and--was that a wink I saw from fomfomfom to ah bee?--after some intense mindwork, ah bee grandly declared that the profit is a lollipop. Satisfied, I told ah bee to remember to collect my lollipop and put it in my shoebox.

Trading is such satisfying business.

 

Kiss and tell

I met an iguana today. I hadn't had time to ask his name before he ran away. I wanted to catch him to bring home for fomfomfom but I only managed to kiss him. I didn't want to kiss and tell so I made no mention of the encounter to anyone at home.

Ah bee, however, adheres to an altogether different moral code. It is reprehensible how she spilt the beans and fomfomfom made her wipe my mouth before she will let me kiss her. Next time I witness any of ah bee's encounters of such kind I will shout it from the rooftops. And then I will scrub out her mouth too.

 

2 cats and 3 dogs this morning. Whee!

I got this big swollen bump on my right eyelid this afternoon. Fomfomfom was so alarmed she screamed for cha to come take a look, who dismissed it as an insect bite. Or, aha! It might be the duck fomfomfom fed me for lunch. An allergy! Cha gave fomfomfom dirty looks and said I shouldn't be eating too much meat.

I went for a walk with the lovely fomfomfom and when I came back, the bump was gone. Aha! It must have been an allergy, cha declares. Fomfomfom got only dirty looks. I told fomfomfom, it's ok. I will treat her well. Just keep all that exotic meat coming.

Ah ma was watering her plants with fishy water again. I had to get some of that tasty stuff, so I licked the flower pot. That, ah ma saw. Cha didn't tell ah ma I licked the soil too in case ah ma drags me for mouth cleaning. I got a scolding from cha and the lovely fomfomfom kissed me and said it's ok.

At night me and fomfomfom and ah ma watched the dow drop off a cliff and I decided I had to sleep soon. Coz not many people will be able to sleep tonight and grandpa zhou will be very free to play the swing with me. Whee!

 

World Animal Day

According to the papers, apparently it is world 'nimal day today. Cha informed me of that pleasant fact, and I thought, good for all you animals out there!

I asked cha when it is world baby day coz that would be when I can celebrate. Cha said she didn't know, but we can privately designate today as world smelly baby day and I can celebrate.

I thought, that's not a bad idea at all. Though I had a bath today and I'm not a smelly baby. I will be sure not to bathe on this day next year so that I can celebrate my day properly.

 

Cha cha cha!

Today is Cha's birthday. One more year and she'll be tofu dregs. That's not the saddest part about today; the saddest bit came when a cake was delivered to our place for Cha. Ah ma asked, why is there a birthday cake? It's not anyone's birthday. It's my birthday today Ma, Cha replied. Isn't your birthday long over, Ah ma asked.

Ouch.

The good thing is, the rest of the day was happy for her.

Together now, CHACHACHA!
