National dog walk

We went to west coast park this morning for the national dog walk. But we didn't even manage to find the event, coz west coast park is so big. It was my first time there, I didn't like it at all. I don't like unfamiliar places so I was glad when we reached home and I took a walk around the condo.

But it wasn't totally uneventful at the park. I met a dog who looked exactly like what I would if I didn't cut my hair for 3 months. He's a boy and his name is Lucky. Fomfomfom and ah bee were so delighted coz we seldom see dogs with fur exactly like mine. But my face is prettier.

During my afternoon walk at the condo, a jack russell attacked me. She was playing fetch with her owner at the field and I was just passing by when she ran towards me and pounced on me. Fomfomfom was so shocked she froze for a moment and the rabid thing was upon me and I squealed and fomfomfom lifted me up by my harness and the stupid owner rushed up and said, "she doesn't bite, she doesn't bite", and she didn't apologise and fomfomfom wanted to flip her the bird but was too stunned by her lack of contrition.

Fomfomfom carried me and we went to sit in the breeze for a while and fomfomfom comforted me. I'm ok now.

 

My sorta new friend

I met a white girl terrier this afternoon. Her name is Mimi and we barked at each other. Then we got tired and sniffed at each other's noses and now I guess we are friends. Mimi is my first friend from the condo and I guess that makes her kind of special.

After establishing our friendship, we went our separate ways and we met again after a few minutes. We barked furiously at each other again and fomfomfom dragged me away.

But we're friends, I insist.

 

Child abuse

Perhaps it was raining meatballs today. I found 2 during my afternoon walk. I had them in my mouth both times, but fomfomfom always gouged them out. Since I'd acquired a taste for meatballs, I found ah ma's plain egg fried rice wanting. I tried to trade up my fried rice for curry chicken, but no one would make the trade with me.

I would like to submit the above as evidence that the fried rice they are feeding me is nothing they would eat themselves, and therefore it is child abuse and can someone please call the police.

I bugged ah bee to bring me for my afternoon walk real early, before 4pm. We merrily went downstairs. At least I was merry.

40 minutes later, fomfomfom came down. It was like a relay, and I was the baton. I dragged fomfomfom around for another 40 minutes. I do rather like this relay style of afternoon walk, I get a better deal. I awarded them a gold medal for their efforts.

When we came back, it was time for dinner and ah ma fried me an egg fried rice. It smelled lovely and I polished it off in a jiffy. It was gold medal material too.

 

My latest adventure

Today, I got stuck in a lift. Fomfomfom was taking me home after our afternoon walk, and the lift door won't open. I could hear fomfomfom's heart sink. The lift was stuffy and we rang the emergency bell and we wondered if the lift was dead and if it would crash all the way to the first floor. Maybe if we jumped at the exact moment it hit the ground...

That was fomfomfom's runaway paranoia, and also the workmen who were fixing the lift all afternoon and making a lot of noise. Maybe they did something wrong. I could hear fomfomfom's imagination running away amidst that frantic pressing of the bell before the lift door suddenly opened after fomfomfom probed it. We were stuck for all of 2 minutes.

We flew out of the lift, into my bathtub. We shan't dwell on that unpleasant little interlude.

For dinner ah ma cooked tom yam soup. It smelled wonderful and I spent 2 hours begging for scraps from various people. I got nothing. So I decided to eat fertiliser. Twice. It was goat's poo, according to ah ma.

No one allowed me to kiss them tonight.

 

Ah ma brought me for a walk and met ngyak ngyak ngyak

This morning I wanted ah ma's slippers so I took one off her foot. As I was playing with it I thought it was kind of wet, perhaps from my saliva, so I took it to the balcony and put it under the sun.

Since I then found myself empty handed, I went back for the other slipper. Who'd have thunk, I found it kind of wet too. So I brought it out into the balcony too, so the other slipper can have company and they can dry together. I arranged them like a chef would a dish, one on top of the other, at a pleasing angle, like foie gras.

Everyone praised me.

 

Lost innocence

I met a shih tzu on my afternoon walk today. At least I think she was a shih tzu. And a she. Anyway, I thought she looked rather cute so I approached her to say hi. I hadn't even taken 2 steps when she saw me and went, "Ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak ngyak!"

It was a real rapid delivery, high pitched and all round rather silly. She must be a puppy. So I decided to show her what's what, and I opened my mouth and gave her a sonorous "woah woah woah!" Pity fomfomfom didn't let me approach her further. Her maid decided to remove her by force and carried her away, all the while still yipping ngyak ngyak ngyak.

Then we met cha who had just returned. She had heard the entire exchange, but didn't witness the scene. She thought a cat was screaming at me. I told her that shih tzu was so silly it sounds like a cat.

At night cha was showing fomfomfom and ah ma my childhood photos, and they started reminiscing about when I was a few weeks old. And I got more lovin' from them coz I was so cute then. Such innocence, cha said.

As long as it gets me more rubbin' on that belly, whatever.

 

Ah bee has to change her resume

I set a new record for my afternoon walk. It was a whole 80 minutes. I spent one hour sniffing at drains. Fomfomfom wondered whether there was some substance in the drains that was making me high. So she dragged me off for some fresh air. It was floatin'. Giggles.

Ah ma was sorting out her stuff and came up with a letter from the government. It was dated 23 years ago and was a reminder for her to register ah bee's birth. I understand the feeling of being an illegal. Poor ah bee. So she has a criminal record.

I was an illegal for quite a while too. It was only until last year that my mamas bothered to get me registered with the government. Now I can shout from rooftops that I am a singapore citizen.

Strut.

 

Such wit

I think I've found my champion snail in the making. We found it near the BBQ pit and I knew it was the one the moment I sat my big beautiful eyes on it. For starters, it's tiny. So we know it's not set in its ways yet. And tiny is good because it's more likely to be fast. I don't want a clumsy snail. So I recruited the snail and told it that training will start on Monday at 8a.m at the same place. I can't wait.

Ah bee and Fomfomfom went to play ping pong after walking me. Ah bee declared that they are both ready for the national team. Fomfomfom says that it's no good recommending themselves for the team and so I volunteered to be their manager. I will put on my suit and carry my briefcase. Then I will go to the coach for the national team and I will knock on his door.

I will say, "Knock knock!" and he will ask, "Who's there?".

"Ping."

"Ping who?"

"Ping Pong!"

I am so clever.

 

Klong Klong!

Ah ma says she wants to klong klong me. I'm not sure what that means; it sounds like the thunder. But I don't think it's got anything to do with thunder. Fomfomfom says if they klong me, there would be three more of me. And then the three of me would drive me crazy.

I think they are the crazy ones.

The world is not ready for more Xiaopings.
