Heads I win, tails I still win

Fomfomfom tells me Ah bee went to the casino. So I got her to tell Ah bee to put one hundred on black for me.

I don't actually care what the outcome is; I just need to see one hundred bucks in my shoebox tomorrow morning.

She is lucky I didn't insist on a thousand.

 

Poor loser

Someone went to the casino and lost $26 million in 3 days. Then he's suing the casino for granting him too much credit.

What bad manners he has.

 

So girly

Cha put me in a dress today. It was a sleeveless blue dress and everyone laughed at me. I kept stepping on it so fomfomfom knotted it up at my waist. It was almost fashionable.

Now they're talking of making me wear pyjamas so I won't get cold at night. Oh dear.

 

Sucked dry

Another one of those prehistoric-looking ticky-mitey thing fomfomfom found along my lower jaw! Then, she found another different ticky thing at the same spot! Oh my poor pingping, ah ma cooed, imagine all those parasites feasting on you!

So I got me pig's liver for dinner. To nourish my blood.

 

Parasite

Yesterday fomfomfom found a new kind of parasite on my neck. It was grey and fat and popped juicily. Today cha found another on my right eyelid. Fomfomfom had to pull it off my eyelid and everyone was heartbroken.

I tell them it's coz of the rain and all the parasites were going to drown. That's why they sought refuge with me. My mamas aren't that hospitable.

 

Anyone can be on tv these days

I was having nightmares all last night. It was all fomfomfom's fault. She had found a 3rd rate taiwanese singing competition show and was watching it with gusto. Ah bee begged her to change a channel coz of all the psychological damage it was doing to us but fomfomfom refused.

I need to catch up on my sleep in peace tonight, without nightmares, hopefully.

Cha is back from her hiking/climbing trip! I can sleep soundly at night now that everyone is accounted for.

Except a group of exchange students moved in next door and like the batches before them, they make a lot of noise. I cannot remember if I've talked about this before but singing, whistling, whooping and slamming doors at 1am at night is very un-neigbourly behaviour. We set the security guard on them once but he didn't manage to speak to them. We've been thinking about how best to tell them to keep all that exuberance in check and finally we have an answer!

There is this weekly column in the papers and it's called the ex-pat files. Today's article is entitled "Face to face with culture shock" and the writer tells of the time when she was in Japan and how the first thing she did when she got there was to hold a huge party for all her friends till the wee hours of the night. That's a no-no in rural Japan when no one makes noise after 10pm, as the article goes. She was soon set right in her ways.

That article cannot come at a better time. We will cut it out and paste it on the neighbours' door. And we will include in our postscript - "because we are not in rural Japan (just heartland Singapore), 11 p.m. is fine!"

And because we are such good neighbours, we will throw in a gift - a bag of durians - to welcome them to our little estate.

Beams.

Fomfomfom finally completed her 1500 piece jigsaw and freed up the table, which ah ma promptly saw as a chance to use to sun my toys.

She washed my toys thrice!

 

Garlic

There must have been a garlic bumper harvest recently. Ah ma's serving so much of it and fomfomfom's eating so much of it. Raw!

And then fomfomfom brings me down for a walk. I feel so embarrassed.
