Safe investment

Ah ma and ah bee went to macau today. I told ah bee to place a bet for me, HKD$100 for black at the roulette table. I said if the ball lands on a red number, it is considered ah bee's bet. It is my bet only if the ball lands on a black number. In other words, heads I win, tails ah bee loses. Kind of like an american bank.

Ah bee later called and told me she had made a mistake and placed a $500 bet instead. Happily, I won that round so now I have $500 to put in my shoebox. Traditionally I also put a 150% tax on transactions so ah bee should give me $750 when she comes back.

I said, let's just round it up to $1000 coz it's only a few dollars difference and $750 is such an odd number we don't want to be dealing with coins and all that. So ah bee should have a crisp $1000 note for me upon her return.



I miss ah ma

Ah ma and ah bee went out early in the morning with luggage and I knew they were disappearing for a few days again. Sulking won't change matters, so I went for my morning walk with cha happily.

My evening walk wasn't so happy coz it was only 40 minutes. That was because I was uncomfortable and had to keep scratching myself against benches and walls. Fomfomfom surmised there must be an ant or five in my fur biting me so we went home to clean up. But we found no ants. My vengeful heart had nowhere to venge, no ants to ground into powder.

I seethed with fomfomfom, who wanted to attack ah gong coz he was irking her so much. He was going on and on with his broker on the phone like he was conducting earthshaking business and fomfomfom wanted to poke his eyes out. The stakes must have been like 2 bucks.

The brighter side of things tell us we can learn the art of conversation from ah gong and his poor broker.

Ah bee brought back from dumplings from my Ah yi mama today. It's going to be the Dragon Boat Festival next week that's why. My Sugar mummy helped in making them dumplings and she made them for me. I haven't seen her since Chinese New Year but I know she loves me because I have the dumplings to show for it.

Now I just have to make them release the dumplings to me.

Separately, I overheard them talking about someone wanting to give her mum a very expensive set of sofa. I think that is a very sweet thought so I've decided to give the black leather sofa at home to Ah ma. They praised me for being good.

Donut- Variant: doughnut -(ˌ)nət

They brought me to meet Donut today. Donut is a black mini Schnauzer and he's only 4 months old. He's also the silly little thing that pooped in his water bowl. His mummy says he has a hole in his brain, that's why. I concur.

Donut is tiny and very jumpy. He had the audacity to bite my leash and even tried to pull me along with him. That reminded me of the time Rusty bit my tail and tried to pull me along. Now I remember why I don't like playing with little puppies.

And so I kept away from Donut whenever he approached by jumping onto Fomfomfom or Ah bee. After a while, he took more interest in his toys than in me. And that is how the whole MeetTheDonut session ended in 16 minutes.

But he is cute lah. Grumble.


Ding Dang Dong!

Remember Sister Yakity Yak? We haven't seen her since we moved and stopped going to the gardens. Today Fomfomfom was reading a magazine at her doctor's and she saw a picture of Sister YY. In Tatler. That's high society, people. Who would have thunk.

And I met a Toy Poddle in a hot pink collar today. Turns out it's a he and his name is Henry.

And I'm actually a cat. Meow.

I have been having bifteck these couple of days for my meals. I had them well done initially; then medium well, medium and today I had it nearly bleu. It was tres magnifique!

I don't know what they put in my bifteck and mashed potatoes but it makes me feel high each time. My hind leg feels better everytime after I've had the bifteck. Powerful stuff.

No more kibble. I will only have le bifteck from now on.


What a scare

Last night, Ah bee crushed up two peices of paper and threw them around for me to chase. We were playing happily when I sprained my left hind leg. It hurt and so I didn't want to play anymore. I lay down and didn't move. But they didn't know what was wrong with me. They thought I might have a stummyache or a headache. It was so unlike me to just lie still like that. They had a discussion and thought they would observe me for a couple of hours before deciding whether to bring me to the hospital. I fell asleep but my breathing was jerky and deep. At 3.30am, Ah bee woke everyone up coz I was still behaving weird and not wanting to move. She thought the worst when I walked away from her a couple of times; she got reminded of the movie Marley and Me. She called two clinics and the nurse on duty told her to observe me until morning since I was not vomiting or throwing up nor did I have difficulty breathing. Fomfomfom took over the watching at 6 and she told me her heart broke when she saw that I was trembling and that I couldn't scratch my ears coz it hurt too much to lift my leg.

We went to see the vet woman in the morning and she saw straightaway that my posture was all wrong. She gave me a painkiller via injection and scheduled me for an xray. She came back with the results and she said it's fine Pingping didn't fracture anything. But Pingping has bad hips, she said. Let me do an xray of Camote and you can see the difference.

An xray of Camote! Poor thing. The princess of the clinic got volunteered for scientific research because of me. She had to put her schmoozing on hold for a while. I felt so bad I told Fomfomfom to buy her dinner the next time we go to the vet's. Fomfomfom said sure thing. She likes Camote a lot. She tried asking the vet woman if she could bring Camote home but the vet woman gave her a cold stare and said no way. At least she tried.

She also tried to get the vet woman's contact number. She said the next time I don't feel good at night, she would have someone to call. Alas, she didn't succeed but she said she will. Even if she has to seduce someone at the clinic.

I digress. So the xray showed that I have arthritis. This means they have to be very careful with me from now on. No more jumping up and off the couch. No more running after big dogs. Doctor's orders. And I have to take supplements everyday from now on. Bah, I'll just get Ah ma to make me stews of cartilage and whatnot. Yum.

And not to worry everyone- I am feeling much better and am almost back to my playful and ngeow ngeow self. I can scratch me ear now.


Ah bee earned a star!

We went to see the vet woman today. Fomfomfom was supposed to empty my anal sacs in front of her coz the vet woman taught her how to do it the last time. But Fomfomfom is chicken and she made Ah bee do it. So we went through the whole oneknuckle4and8oclock drill again for her benefit. And mine.

So after much trying, Ah bee did the deed and the vet woman was so pleased. She said Ah bee deserves a big star for a job well done.

Fomfomfom: Lose!

Ah bee got called to the bar today. I wanted to attend and I was going to say, Your Honour I object to her getting called because there will be one less person at home to play with me. Alas, they didn't bring me along and so I didn't manage to botch it for her.
