Too loud

I met niki and his 2 sisters. But they were stuck on the balcony on the 2nd floor, so we were shouting to each other and we have a date for tomorrow. We will play together on the 1st floor instead of shouting.

Then I met Lightning. She is only 8 months old. Such a baby, and such a loud voice. I was a little scared of her. She seems a little rabid. I wanted fomfomfom to carry me home after 5 minutes with her, she's rather exhausting.

The water feature broke down and was leaking all over the place. Cha bought a new one with disco lights and maybe it will bring us better fortune than the leaking one.

And these days, they are talking very loudly in the house. They all seem rather agitated. Fomfomfom seems to have no end of swear words, and they seem to be all directed at a third auntie, or a third uncle, or maybe both, since the vulgarities were plenty to spread around. Maybe we don't like 3rd relatives.

 

Mexican jumping bean

I was surprised to meet a shih tzu I'd never seen before today. But I have seen her owner around so she must have been staying at home most of the time. Anyway, her name is dou dou, it means bean. But I don't know what kind of bean she is.

There might be a reason why I don't see her around. Maybe she has no leash. Her owners were 2 kids being chaperoned by a maid, and they had attached a karabiner to her collar, and then attached some thin string to the karabiner. It was so funny, and coz dou dou tried to pounce on me, the kids had to hold on tight to her string. While the collar wasn't causing dou dou particular pain, the string was cutting into the owners' hands and we thought this motley gang of kids, maid and bean were cute.

Maybe I will buy dou dou a leash. Then we can meet and play together everyday.

 

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.
