My bottle

Fomfomfom was having something that smelled nice. Twisties! Iasked for some but fomfomfom won't give me any. So I thought hard and went to get my most precious possession, my bottle, and gave it to fomfomfom in exchange for some Twisties. Fomfomfom thought that was so cute of me so I got some Twisties. Later, cha told ah ma about it and they had a good laugh.

I don't know what's so funny. When ah bee came home, I told her and ah bee almost had tears in her eyes as she thought of how I was reduced to such a pathetic state. Having to give up my most precious possession for a Twistie! How pitiful.

At least I got my bottle back. I'm guarding it carefully from now on. Coz now I know I can use it to exchange for things.

 

One should never forget history

It's Ah ma's lunar birthday today. She must be feeling reminiscent on her birthday - she started telling Ah bee about the starlets who were famous in the 70s and the movies she watched when she was still in school.

But that is not what I want to talk about today. What I want to talk about is the story she told of her uncle who was executed by a firing squad in China more than 50 years ago. He was someone who fled to Taiwan after the communists took over the country post WWII. He went back to China as a spy and was caught. They had him killed in the hills and my Ah ma's mother and his step-mother had to go up the hills to collect his body. They also ransacked the family home and even took away the letters my Ah ma's father wrote to my Ah ma's mother. Ah ma was 6 years old then, about the same age I am now.

It wasn't that long ago. We are so lucky here.

And we shouldn't forget that.

 

Got borrow, got return, not difficult to borrow again.

Usually I would sneak Ah ma's slippers away when she ain't wearing them. Today they happened to be on her feet when I wanted them so I wrestled one off Ah ma's foot. She started screaming for everyone to come and look at me and they all wagged their fingers at me.

I don't see why they fussed; I made it a point to return the slipper to Ah ma when I was done with it.

 

Renewed

Today I renewed 2 acquaintances. That doggone thing, we learnt her name is chanel. How lovely. Fomfomfom decided we should get to know each other calmly before chanel eats me up one fine day, so we were brought together twitching and struggling and screaming. Then we were calm and chanel refused to look at me. At least she didn't seem like she wanted to eat me up anymore. Not today anyway.

The 2nd acquaintance is a little more heartbreaking. There's this girl, I thought she was about 10 years old, sometimes we would see her mother bringing her for a walk around the estate, slowly, holding her. I'm not a doctor, but I'm thinking maybe it's cerebral palsy. Today we saw her again, and I hung around till she reached me so I could say hi. Her mummy(?) says she likes doggies but she's scared. I told her she doesn't have to be scared of me, i won't bite. Fomfomfom asked how old she is and her mummy said she's 17. We were almost floored but we kept our expressions unchanged and wished them a nice day.

Later, we tried not to weep.

 

Mystery

Cha found poop on my behind after our morning walk and conferred with fomfomfom. That was when they realised I hadn't pooped for 4 sessions straight, all yesterday and this morning. They were baffled as to where the poo came from.

That's for me to know and them to find out.

 

That doggone face

The doggone face that's always hanging out of the 2nd floor unit. Today she was naughty and ran out without her owner's permission. She had just gone home so we were surprised. Suddenly, fomfomfom saw her standing right in front of us. Since I always bark at her, fomfomfom was afraid she would take the chance and eat me up. In a Matrix-worthy sequence, fomfomfom lifted me up in 1 second using my leash and turned her back to the doggone thing, with me safely in her arms.

The doggone thing didn't pounce on fomfomfom as expected though. I know why. Coz her mama was cursing and swearing and her voice came floating down the staircase where the doggone thing had used to escape. She must have been shivering in her doggone panties.

When pissed-off mama caught up, she scolded her all the way up and then some. Giggles, she totally deserves it. My armpits are still hurtin'.

 

Limerick

There was a young girl from Singapore
Trottin' merrily on her fours
Seized by an itch
She yelled, "What a bitch!"
What happened next nobody saw.

Giggles. At least I hope no one saw. I fell on my bum and tumbled over as I tried to get at that itch and then I told cha I wanted to go home. Embarrassed. Giggles.

It's wonderful. China is going to send singapore 2 pandas. I like pandas. They're big and cute and silly. I shall get my mamas to bring me to the zoo to look at the pandas.

And when no one's looking, I can bunch up my tail, sit between the pandas and wail loudly and pretend to be their baby. Giggles.

 

I was this close

to getting the workinprogress scarf Ah ma left on the massage chair. This close. That Chacha had to come look for me. And she had to see me trying to get at the scarf. And she had to tell everyone about it. And everyone said Ah ma would hang me up and whip me for being so naughty.

But she didn't. She told Cha to fetch me my own ball of wool to play with.

Ah ma loves me. Beams.

 

Where do you think you are going with my pizza?

Two pizzas came and left. And I didn't get a single bite.

I need to have a word with someone about this.

In other news, it is Apec week in Singapore. It's so exciting. I saw pictures of Hillary Clinton having coffee at a Starbucks joint and Hu Jintao visting a school and a water plant.

Now if only Obama would come to our neighbourhood; I'd show him my favourite places. And maybe then pizzas won't disappear the way they did.
