The stuff of champions

I am a champion today. I shat 4 times. Even the usually critical cha expressed admiration.

I feel noble.

 

I always keep my promises

Ah bee wasn't with me today, so I intro-ed the cat to fomfomfom instead. He was lazing around under a car, so I reprimanded him loudly while fomfomfom squatted beside me and held my leash. I made so much noise that everyone who walked past us stopped to stare in admiration.

I must introduce the cat to ah bee too. Then she can squat beside me while everyone gawks in envy.

Ah bee promised to bring me down to play at 4, but it was already 430 and she was watching this documentary on Puyi. I thought it wasn't so interesting but all my 3 mamas were glued to the tv.

So I tried to entice ah bee to bring me downstairs. I told her I'd introduce cats to her, and with that promise I managed to pry her away from the tv.

Alas we met no cats and I could tell ah bee was terribly disappointed. I don't blame her.

 

I had yet another perfect day

But it seems like I'm in the minority. I was watching tv with ah ma and fomfomfom, as we do most saturday nights. Sisy's programme, she talked about how many thousands of jobs were lost and whole towns in the US are jobless now. And they interviewed the poor people on the ground, and more than one person cried about how hopeless the situation is.

I feel quite sad for the people.

 

For once I was outside the house barking in at ah bee

This morning, fomfomfom and ah ma were driving to the market when they saw a dog with a collar cross the road right outside the condo. Fomfomfom had to stop her car in the middle of the road or she would have hit the dog. The dog wasn't very road savvy at all, fomfomfom worried all the way to the market and back. She thought it might be the dog poo activist's dog. If the security guards had seen the dog stroll out and not done anything, they ought all to be shot and drawn and quartered and tarred and feathered. But we don't know for sure whose dog it was. Maybe he came from the terrace houses nearby.

We hope he was just out for a stroll and is already home by now. But the way he crosses roads is worrying.

 

I must remember to ask ah ma for a $60 red packet

The schnauzer in a black harness with colorful paw prints all over it, I met her again today. Today she was with her maid instead of her mummy. I think her name is really Baby. When I met her a few times previously, her mummy always called her Baby, I thought it was just an affectionate term. Today her maid called her Baby too. I giggled at her name, and she wanted to jump on me so I growled at her. She's only one plus years old, just a baby. I wonder what they will call her when she's older.

Giggles.

 

Ah ma knows the security guard too!

I haven't finished grousing about xie mie mie. Her mummy gave me a red packet, and then asked ah ma for one for mie mie too. Ah ma must have been stunned by the request because she handed over a $60 red packet! Mie mie's mummy only gave me $12, so mie mie won this round. We will fight it out next chinese new year.

This evening I ate something off the ground again. Fomfomfom was angry and yanked me home immediately. She washed my feet and left me on my perch for a while as punishment. Cha finally carried me down. I was hungry and wanted to eat but no one would feed me. So I barked and held one kibble in my mouth and jumped on the sofa so that they would know I was ready to be fed but everyone ignored me. Cha even came out of her room to scold me. I had to eat my kibble myself. I was miserable.

Luckily me and fomfomfom were friends again after 10 minutes. I don't like them to be angry with me.

 

Xie Mie Mie

I do not like Xie Mie Mie. Xie Mie Mie is a silly little Shih Tzu who wears dresses and ribbons in her hair. Most of all, I do not like her because she gets more attention from everybody than I do. I'll have all of you know I'd look prettier than her if only my hair were longer.

Next year, next year I will remind Ah ma not to bring me to the groomers two months before Chinese New Year.

Just now, Fomfomfom told me someone took a picture of the back of my head and asked me if I knew who the person was. D'oh! Do I look like I have eyes at the back of my head? Sometimes I worry about her. And all of us. Because stupidity is actually contagious.

Yes it is. You heard it here first.

 

My 6th CNY

It is Chinese New Year today. I slept on red packets last night to ensure my elders' longevity, or was it simply for good luck? Anyway, it is a tradition I faithfully follow every year.

Then people came visiting and I was the good host. It was tiring but someone's got to do it. I was all tired out but we had to go visiting immediately after. I wished my mama a happy chinese new year and gave her 2 kumquats. My sister and brother fought again but they always do it so it's nothing new. I tried something new today, it's the pig's kidney. I can learn to like it.

We finally came home at about 5pm and I had to go for my evening walk. After dinner, I realised I was utterly exhausted so I slept in front of the tv.

It's time to sleep again now!

 

Chinese New Year Eve

Ah ma says I must have a bath so that I may welcome the new year in style and cleanliness. And after my bath, I wasn't allowed to take my evening walk. Only 2 walks today. I wasn't happy about it at all.

But dinner was a mitigating factor. They had steamboat and I ate out of the same pot too. I had pig's stomach, chicken, liver, whatever they were having. Abalone wasn't to my taste though so I spat it out.

We put money in red packets and watched tv at great volume all night. I'm tired now, and it's past midnight, so I will go and sleep. There are red packets under my bed. And there's money in them red packets. *glee*

Happy Niu Year!
