Cha likes lilies. Fomfomfom hates flowers.

Ah ma scolded Ah gong just now because that foolish old man killed Merrilyn’s flowers. Merrilyn has been growing these pretty little pink and white flowers in the garden, in addition to the bitter gourd, and she has been tending to them everyday. Then that silly Ah gong comes along and fertilizes them to death. We all know Merrilyn must be devastated so Ah ma gave him a good scolding. He’s not to touch any plants but those three big pots of er, I don’t know what they’re called. They look like palm trees but they grow outta pots. Anyhow, he’s not supposed to touch Merrilyn’s flowers anymore. She has already started growing them pretty little flowers again. They will be safe this time round.

Ah bee got a fright just now when Ah ma said that she wants to look at the Edison Chen pictures. She told Ah ma she really shouldn’t, lest she gets nightmares at night. Then Fomfomfom came back and Ah bee told her about it. Fomfomfom said, “Just show her lah! Nothing she’s never seen before.” She has a point. But still no one showed Ah ma the pictures. I am not going to look at them coz I’m only a baby.

I thought they were going to bring me to the gardens when Cha and Fom got changed. They went down without me and I got Ah bee to carry me. But somehow I ended up in her room again. I knew I wasn’t going to get to go out so I didn’t bother. I simply slept in Ah bee’s room until they got back. Then we went to the gardens.

We didn’t meet any friends but we saw a few dogs. There was a spaniel swimming in the lake. I can’t imagine the filth but he looked like he was having fun. I’ve never gone swimming before. I’ve got myself an inflatable pool but no one has ever blown it up for me. I should really get them to do it but I don’t think anyone knows where that inflatable pool is now.

Then at night, Cha and I watched Under the Tuscan Sun. It was my third time watching it. I don’t mind watching it coz it’s a lovely show. Much better than Taiwanese news. We also watched this programme about a certain tribe in the Yunnan province with Ah ma. I didn’t know Ah ma’s so liberal. You really can’t tell. *giggles*

Fomfomfom went to buy my kibble today. She is very sad coz in a few years’ time, I will have to eat kibble for “7 years up”. She says I am growing up too fast. But I don’t feel old.

Wo chai si sui.


Cha, you've been Pingfombee-ed

You know when we said we didn’t go to the gardens after the visit to the vet? *giggles* We did! *giggles* So I went to the gardens twice today. That’s why I was so tired. And that’s why I didn’t poop the second time. *giggles* *giggles* Don’t angry hor Cha! *giggles*

Anyway, like I was saying, we went to the vet today. When we walked in, they said the vet woman’s not available coz she’s in surgery. So we had to see another vet woman. This one’s young and Fomfomfom didn’t quite trust her to squeeze my backside. So after she looked at my ears, Fomfomfom told her we wanted to wait for the vet woman who was done with her surgery already. I hope she wasn’t offended. We weren’t rude but after the last time that new vet man did a sloppy job with my backside, we only trust the vet woman. So we waited for her. She finally came out and asked, “Where’s my Pingping?” *giggles. I’m not hers but I like the sound of that. After the expression of my anal glands, Fomfomfom went to pay. She’s sore that the bill included consultation fees, an additional 30 bucks. She suspects the new vet woman billed that. And she wasn’t happy. Next time, she says, next time we must get an appointment with the vet woman. 30 bucks is nothing compared to her open position which blew up in her face whilst we were at the gardens the first time. Okay I shan’t remind her of that anymore.

Coz I love Fomfomfom for bringing me to the gardens twice today. Muacks!


Fomfomfom ate 5 eggs today.

Ah ma threatened to inflict them with bodily harm if they dared bring me out in the sun. Of course we still went, silly. We just had to sneak out. *giggles*. But it really wasn’t hot when we were there today. In fact, the weather was so fine we stayed there for an hour. I love hour long visits to the gardens. And I made a new friend today too. We were sitting at the bench near the carpark watching the world go by when I spied two dogs playing in the distance. So we went closer and we saw another Maltese saying hello to them. We didn’t say hi coz we are antisocial creatures. We went back to our bench and shortly after the Maltese walked by. I barked at the Maltese coz I was on the bench and so I wasn’t afraid of him. He took one look at me and turned around. His owner said, “Snowy! Don’t chicken ah Snowy!” *giggles. He chicken.

Speaking of chicken, I had Three Cup Chicken today. I like Three Cup Chicken. It’s called Three Cup Chicken because that’s all you need when you cook this dish. You need a chicken and three cups. In those three cups, you need shaoxing wine, seasame oil and something else which I forgot. These are also the ingredients for another dish which my mamas love- ginger egg in wine. For that you need eggs, ginger, wine, dark sauce, sugar and sesame oil. That’s something women eat after they give birth, like pig trotters in vinegar. We had both today. That’s why Ah gong asked, “Who just gave birth?” when he saw them. He wish ah.

Maybe he’s ultra sensitive today because it’s Vday. I usually get a present from my sigui for Vday- last year I got Sexy Bone and the previous, I got a tug toy- but not this time. I shall tell myself that it’s because Ah bee didn’t get to see Jan yiyi today. Anyway, the latter’s all ruined now because I ripped it apart but I still sleep with Sexy Bone every night. I just don’t play with it all the time now, especially since I got Donut. I love Donut. I’ve got a sweet tooth like Ah ma who is driving Fomfomfom crazy with her eating. At least Ah ma did something guai guai today which made everyone rest easier.

Happy Vday to you and your family Boo!

We went to the gardens really late today. It was almost five when we left the house. That’s coz Ah ma kept scolding them for bringing me out so early all the time when it’s scorching. She says I’d get a heat stroke from staying out in the sun all the time. There was no mention of them getting heat strokes. Or unwanted tans. Coz they’re chopped liver. I’m different. I’m the apple of Ah ma’s eye. Pearl of her palm.

Which brings me to the palm tree in our garden. It has ants. Lots of things in our house have ants. The ant person came today and I howled up a storm while he sprayed. I imagine he must have shook his hips to my howling . Rhythm, baby. Howl howl howl, spray spray spray. He and me, we danced the tango, baby.

Then ah ma said I wasn't to go out of the house for 2 days coz of the pesticide. I pouted and within an hour ah ma had merrilyn scrub the porch clean for my nightly moon-tan session.

Which ah ma brought me out for. Then she ran upstairs for her news and left me in fomfomfom and ah bee's hands. Which no one has asked for. But I digress. I wanted only ah ma so I followed her upstairs promptly and left the spinster sisters sitting in the porch wringing their hands.

Ah ma cackled when I burst into her room in, well, a burst of innocent anxiety ( a girl searching for grandma, what's not to like?) and I got extra lovin'. Coz Ah ma loves me and I love ah ma.


I hungry.

Fomfomfom had all the pineapple tarts in a plastic bag just now. And then she crushed them all. All that beautiful pineapple tarts, crushed and thrown away. She could have thrown them my way but I didn’t get anything. Not a crumb. Sigh. I wonder if I can use the money in my shoebox to get my own. I would love some of that cuttlefish and peanut cookies. Yummy. And bak kwa. I love bak kwa. Have I told you how much I love bak kwa?

I love bak kwa.

I am starting to think that Ah ma wasn’t kidding when she said she’s getting better at MJ. She won money again today. I think she should play MJ everyday. She can be the sole breadwinner of the family.

I’m still bushed from yesterday. I tried to take a nap just now but Ah bee kept staring at me and smiling to herself. I couldn’t sleep with her breathing down my neck like that so I growled at her. The more I growled, the more she laughed. Bugger only scrammed when Ah ma told her to get lost.

What will I do without Ah ma?


Happy birthday to me

I didn’t like today’s 50 month old celebration. First of all, I don’t think it’s even a party for me. They didn’t sing me a birthday song. And it was really noisy the whole day; it interfered with my napping. And we had gatecrashers. She’s a 5 month old brown Shih Tzu. I think her name is Miet. When she showed up, everyone gushed over her. She’s such a baby, all dressed in a yellow top and hair clips. And she’s a real sleepy little thing. They would put her in the middle of the table and she would just lie there like a centrepiece. Such a baby.

Nuff said about her. What was I saying? Oh yes, I didn’t like today. The only thing I liked about today was going to the gardens twice. I liked that. Especially the second time. It got me away from all that madness.

It’s nice to have the peace and quiet back again.

Ah ma was so tickled by this Maltese she saw on tv coz she can walk on her hind legs. And she started comparing us. She said I can't do anything. And then she smacked my backside. Hey I can do all those tricks. It’s just that I don’t want to. Why would I want to walk on my hind legs? Or fetch balls? Or play dead? When I can be lying on my back getting bellyrubs. Silly people.

Fomfomfom is very upset at Ah ma coz she caught Ah ma overloading on the sugars again. Ah ma is gluttony, like me. Except that she’s in denial and I am not. And so Fomfomfom threw away the remainder of that little spongy cake thingy and Ah bee took the cake and the almond biscuits up to her room tonight. Fomfomfom devised a plan to systematically throw away all the new year goodies after tomorrow. I hope she throws them my way. I love peanut cookies. Yum.

Oh! I will be 50 months old tomorrow. I told Cha about it and she said she’s already planned a big party for me. She’s catered the food and invited many people. I can’t wait.


Home alone. Almost.

On the second day of CNY my true love gav- okay nehmind. No one gave me anything today. Unless you count solitude. I was plenty upset when they went out without me. I didn’t even beg them to bring me out. Coz I knew they weren’t going to. I overheard them. And so I spent a very lonely two hours at home. Merrilyn stayed with me but she wasn’t around all the time. I don’t know what I did wrong. I have been a good girl these few days. Finally Cha and Fomfomfom came home. I was so happy to see them I kept taking steps backwards. Usually when I am really happy to see someone, I would take three steps back. Today I took about ten. I told everyone I will be good from now on. Just don’t leave me home like that again.
