Egg yolk is like a moon

It is apparently fomfomfom's birthday today. I was confused, coz I remembered her birthday as a different date. Ah ma told me it's her lunar birthday. Well, I thought maybe i'll wait till it's her solar birthday before I sing her a birthday song. Besides, I need time to learn the song. I want to be able to present fomfomfom with the traditional chinese birthday song.

And since it was a birthday, we had noodles and eggs. Ah ma gave me an egg yolk. And I thought i'll pretend it's my lunar birthday every mon, wed and fri so we can all eat eggs all the time.

 

Sorrow Part III

The good thing is I didn't have a sorrowful day; Fomfomfom was the one. And it was real sorrowful too, if you ask me. It's okay Fomfomfom, today didn't happen. Your day got swallowed up in a black hole.

Mine didn't. Today we met Ngak ngak ngak. Ngak ngak ngak is a girl and her name is Lightning. Lightning! That is a very cute name, but it's not very appropriate. She's so obviously a Thunder. Yes, she is. And I was thinking, maybe, maybe I should call myself Tzu-nami-koh. Giggles.

 

Sorrow Part II

It was a sorrowful start to a day. I woke up, tail waggin'. I looked at cha expectantly, only to be told it's raining. No morning walk. I went out to look at ah ma sorrowfully, but it was still raining. Fomfomfom woke up and I looked at her sorrowfully, only to be told fomfomfom can't stand the misery and so she went out to escape my sorrow and have her morning cuppa.

Ah bee woke up after noon and I looked at her sorrowfully. Only this time it worked and fomfomfom told ah bee she had broken 2 toes and dumped me on ah bee. So ah bee brought me downstairs for my walk and I was happy again.

When I came back, I was full of happiness and I went out to the balcony to survey my kingdom 12 storeys below and lo and behold! A pot! It was a rare sight so I went to eat the soil, which was, happily, freshly fertilised. Fomfomfom caught me and ah ma was alerted and I got a half hearted mouth wiping from fomfomfom. Then I picked up ah ma's slipper and ran off to show my displeasure and ah ma chased me with the other slipper and finally enticed me with half a sweet potato that I deigned to barter for.

Later, as I waited for my afternoon walk, I followed fomfomfom all around as a reminder. But it didn't happen and I was sorrowful again. So my day started and ended with sorrow and it is a regrettable day.

 

My sorrow

Cha came back with a SPCA doggie calendar. Dogs are featured every month and they are all ex-strays or unwanted pets with their own story. Fomfomfom thought their pasts are so sad, so she told me I'm a lucky doggie. I said, I have my sad stories to tell too. Just that no one will listen. So fomfomfom offered to listen to my sorrows.

First, I told her, I walk for 2 hours a day, and I'm all tired out by night time. So I rest, but ah ma calls me lazy. I would cry if I weren't so tired. Second, ah ma sees on tv how the civil servants are having their bonuses reduced. And she turns to me and told me I can only have 40 cents a day now for pocket money. I knew it would be futile to protest so I continue resting.

And that was just for today. If I were to list out all my sorrows, I'm afraid fomfomfom won't be able to take it.

And they think my life is a bed of roses.

 

I don't like curry flavoured twisties

I was on my morning walk when we came across the uncle who sweeps up leaves. He said, "hello pingping! There's a black cat here!" I was pleased. It's good to have them well trained. So I showed my appreciation by barking up a storm.

During my afternoon walk, I met the big headed boy and his mommy. He used to like to approach me, but today he ran away. He ran because he'd just discovered running so he doesn't walk anymore. He runs everywhere on his squeaky shoes. Anyway, his mommy told us he has been scared since he witnessed my quarrel with ngyak ngyak ngyak a couple of weeks ago. I tried to tell him he has nothing to fear but fear itself, but he was already gone in a cloud of smoke.

Fear is indeed a fearful thing.

 

Pot calling the kettle black

It was so boring today. I told ah ma to give me a belly rub. The fact that ah ma was having a nap at that time was a mere detail. But ah ma had to go and tell everyone I haven't been a good girl.

So I decided to take naps myself. At least no one would say I'm being naughty when I'm sleeping. So after my dinner, I slept and slept. And they had to disturb me. Ah bee taught fomfomfom how to slowly walk towards me so that I would think something is up and wag my tail. Then fomfomfom is supposed to turn around and run for her life. I was duped and chased her around the house until I realised nothing was up.

And they have the cheek to say I'm naughty.

 

Fancy colors

Fomfomfom came back with a t shirt 2 nights ago. It had the words "holy shih tzu!", right in the centre, big and bold. It was a gift from a friend. And while it looked like it was worshipping shih tzus, I dunno, I have a bad feeling about it. It must be poking fun at us shih tzus, though I haven't figured out how. I shall shred it to pieces before fomfomfom can have a chance to wear it.

Besides, I'm not sure magenta is her color.

 

Close, but no cigar

Ah bee was going out today and asked me if there was anything she could get for me. I said I wanted to eat ice cream, she should get the chocolate cones for me. I also specified that the cones should contain melamine,coz melamine is everywhere these days, it's almost a dietary requirement. But ah bee would have none of it. And so I had none of it.

 

Mummy

I heard from my ah ma that my sugar mummy is having skin problems, and she's not allowed to eat any meat. And my brother cocoa and sister zhuzhu are on the same austerity diet too. I thought of them while munching my way through my plate of pork for dinner. It must be hard on them, for I underwent the same torture for a few months a while back. Luckily my skin cleared up. I hope mummy sugar gets well soon. I hear she has lost weight.

I must remember to tell them the brand of shampoo I'm using. It might be of help.

I miss my mummy.

 

Cooper cooper, mini cooper

Ah ma instructed Merrilyn to wash everybody's cars today but no one mentioned my cars so I got angry. I threw a hissy fit and then I insisted Merrilyn wash my 2 mini coopers too. To placate me, fomfomfom said she'll wash my cars. I pointed to the cabinet so that fomfomfom would know where my cars were. I told her she had to be extra careful with my red cooper. If water gets into the sensitive parts, it would turn into an ornament like the yellow cooper.

Then I told cha it's time I changed cars. I only go for mini coopers coz they are cute and luxurious, like me. I would want the orange and electric blue ones. Cha nodded and said she would jot it down.

At night I was sleeping on the sofa while ah bee and fomfomfom watched tv. I had a bad dream and when I woke up, they were sniggering with ah ma about how I was wagging my tail and whining in my sleep. I thought that was so rude of them all.
