Today is my favouritest day of the year. Coz today I share my birthday with Ah ma. She is 62 and I am 3 years and 11 months old. *beams* Fomfomfom bought two small cakes for Ah ma and I. Two small Tom & Jerry cakes! That’s coz Ah ma and I, we have been watching Tom & Jerry every night. So happy! So we took many photos, of and with the cakes. Ah ma didn’t smile at all coz she was in her ratty home clothes. *giggles*

Then Ah gong came to watch tv with Ah ma and I nuzzled between the two of them. Like a baby. Can I just mention that I single handedly brought the average age on that sofa down to 43?

After that Ah gong brought me down to the porch to enjoy the breeze and he gave me a bellyrub too. He said that I put on weight and I walk clumsy now. Look who’s talking. Heheh, but I love my Ah gong still. And I love Ah ma even more. Ah ma gives me belly rubs even though her arms are aching. I heart Ah ma deep deep deep!

Happy birthday to us!

And we have banana cake! I don’t think Ah ma knows that the price of flour has gone up. She’s too busy with Taiwan politics I reckon. Lemme tell you about Taiwan- the island that supposedly looks like a sweet potato. Taiwan is a little idiots-run territory with serious identity issues. Anyway, those idiots, when the common folk tell them that they are jobless and can’t make ends meet due to inflation, they are accused of conspiring with the media to cook up news. And them idiots don’t care nuts about the economy; they are only concerned with crushing the opposition. And removing statues of a long dead man. And getting Tiffany to give them freebies. What rubbish. Absolute rubbish. The people must have sweet potatoes for brains if those idiots get elected again; they might as well return to the embrace of their motherland if that happens. How stupid.

Anyway, we were tired of dirty politics so we watched cartoons again. It’s becoming a routine. And a lovely routine at that. I love it when we all convene to watch cartoons together. Better than dirty politics.

We are presently waiting for Cha who went to a wedding dinner. I hope she brought me a doggie bag.

Ah ma says that Fomfomfom can’t kiss me unless I’ve taken a bath. And logically, I think it also means that I can’t kiss Fomfomfom unless she’s clean. So today, after my bath and hers, I kissed her and she kissed me.

Kiss kiss here, kiss kiss there. So happy.

I didn’t have to take a bath today. I don’t exactly know why. The tubs were filled but somehow I didn’t end up in them. Not that I am complaining though. *giggles*

Ah ma was exceptionally crabby today. That incorrigible chicken porridge wants to go to Genting to gamble but it was vetoed in light of the many bus accidents recently. So Ah ma started sulking; not unlike Ah bee when she doesn’t get her way. She grumbled, she scolded, and she was nasty at times. And she got her way. My Ah ma is so clever. I will need to learn this trick.

But there are greater forces- she’s not going to get to go afterall. Coz my Ah yi mamas will not be free to accompany her- they’ve got plans. But everyone is happy- them coz Ah ma can’t go and Ah ma coz she thought she could.

We almost forgot to watch cartoons just now until Ah bee reminded us. She was supposed to watch too but she promptly fell asleep and I didn’t get to go out to the porch until 11. Ah ma and I, we were a little bored coz no one else was around and so she picked up her Beg-No-One and started chasing me again. I absolutely loved it.

I was watching cartoons with Ah ma just now when Fomfomfom came back Ah ma started telling her a story and so no one paid me any attention. I went out to the balcony to look at maomaos but there weren’t any. I saw the coconut brush lying out there so I picked it up and brought it into the room. Ah ma saw that I was playing with that and went back to telling her story. I got bored pretty quickly and I spied Ah ma’s beautiful bedroom slippers. I have been eyeing them for a year now. She didn’t protest when I gingerly picked one up. So I chewed on that one. And flung it around. Then I went for the other one. Still no protest so I thought it was fine. Then Ah ma started screaming and tried to snatch it from me. I refused to give it to her. She had missed the chance and so the slippers are mine now. I ran into Fomfomfom’s lap for refuge and set the slipper down. I didn’t know that Fomfomfom worked for Ah ma; she gave the slipper to Ah ma. Then Ah ma started chasing me with her Beg-No-One, pretending to beat me up. It was real fun. We both got a good workout. Wheeee!

We should do this every day.

Today is Fomfomfom’s birthday. The night before, I was minded enough to write a little note to remind myself to wish her a happy birthday first thing in the morning. So I wrote the slip of paper and took it to bed with me. But when I woke this morning, I didn’t see the note and I went down to welcome the mahjong gals. I forgot about wishing Fomfomfom a happy birthday. When I saw her, I said, “Hello.” And I didn’t realize it until Cha saw the slip of paper from the corner of my mouth. No one knows how it ended in my mouth. That was when she reminded me and I only wished Fomfomfom at this later time. Fomfomfom was very happy though; she said, “A for effort Pingping!” I will try harder the next time. I pwormise. I’d paste “Happy Birthday” on my forehead so even if I forget, they will still see the message. I’m so brilliant. *beams*

I was bitten by the ants in the gardens today and so I bit Fomfomfom. It’s my present to her. *giggles*

Just now Merrilyn got a call. We didn’t know who called but she started tearing after a while. Everyone was so worried, me included. So I went to lick her feet. Then when she finally hung up, Ah gong asked her what had happened. She said it was her aunt from Canada whom she hasn’t heard from for years and she is just so happy that she cried. Phew. I just wish she would smile and laugh instead the next time.

I think I will go into the business of selling flour. It’s risen 46% you know. I’d steal some flour from Ah ma and sell it. I’d sell it cheaply so everyone will buy from me. And I’d establish goodwill too. *beams* but Ah ma’s flour is limited so I will grow corn in our garden. Ah bee’s tasked to clear the land starting from tomorrow. There is a slight problem though- the resident iguana will have to go. I will get Cha to type out an eviction notice and serve it to him tomorrow. But I am not a nasty landlord; I will source for alternative lodging for him. I think, the best place for him to move to, is the garden next door. It’s near and convenient. And he can come visit me from time to time. Perfect.

Fomfomfom said that I can grow rice too. Wonderful idea. Then I’d make rice wine and sell. Shoju is very good- 50 million Koreas cannot be wrong. And since I am at it, I will grow potatoes too coz 2008 is Year of the Potato. I will open a mama shop first- Corner at Ping’s. Then I will expand until I hit Walmart size. I’d be Pmart. Then we will be listed. Fomfomfom will be CEO. I will pay her 100 million a year. And then I will sack her and give her 200 million for her golden goodbye. Then Ah bee will be the CEO and I will pay her the same. And then I will sack her. Then we will repeat the process until there is nothing left in Pmart. Then we will migrate to New Zealand where I would buy myself 2 sheep to chase around. Sounds like a plan.

I’ve been getting requests for photos of the Wildlife Stampede. I was so engrossed in watching it I forgot to take pictures. I found a video for all of you but the link doesn't seem to be able to work. So just go to straitstimes.com and look for it under vodcast.

It’s a shame they didn’t manage to get me on film.

It’s a greater shame that I didn’t get to wear my Tigger suit at the stampede. That was the perfect occasion to wear my Tigger suit. So next year, I will participate in the stampede for wild animals. I’d be a tiger. Raaaaaaaaa!

Fomfomfom discovered an ants’ nest in the sofa. And she was so crept out. So is about everyone else. No wonder there were always those humongous garden-variety ants in the living room. Now we all know why. Ah gong wanted to sweep them up and throw them into the garden but he’s no match for Ah ma’s lightning Baygon-armed hands. Those ants. They are finito.

Today at the gardens:-
1.) We saw 16 dogs.
2.) We know 2 of them.
3.) I sorta played with 1.
4.) We walked for 57 minutes.
5.) And paid $1.14.

0 poopie. *giggles*

In other news, Ah bee woke up waaay past 12, (Fomfomfom says it’s disgraceful, waking up in the afternoon with morning breath), and took 2 naps after. She tried to disguise her laziness by saying she was bitten by the Tse Tse fly. What, do we look stupid to you?

 

I've never seen anything quite like this

We knew something was fishy when we saw that the carpark was closed. And when we went in, we saw NPCC people standing around. So Fomfomfom asked one of them gals what the deal was. She said, “Erm Wildlife Stampede.” Huh, said Fomfomfom. Er, the children are dressing up as animals, she answered. Okaaaaaaaaay.

So we took our usual route but we didn’t see no animals. Until we were at the pond and in the distance, we saw hordes of people walking in our direction. Then the band started.

Dum dum dum dum dum DA! Dum dum dum dum dum DA!

Is pretty infectious that beat. It was a procession. So many kids, with their parents. Marching to dum dum dum dum dum DA. And they were in costume. I saw cats, birds, lions, jellyfish, starfish, snakes, centipedes, tortoises, seahorses and elephants. It’s too wonderful for words. We stopped to watch them. And some of them stopped to watch me too. It took half an hour for the whole motley crew to pass us by. They disappeared without a trace after that and tranquility returned to the gardens. So we carried on our walk. But really, I can’t say how happy I was- everyone was happy and giggling and jumping around. Was such a beautiful scene. You really should have been there.

Dum dum dum dum dum DA!

This is really interesting you know. I didn’t read the papers today but I overheard Ah bee and Fomfomfom talking about it. The fellas who did the Madrid bombings, they were sentenced to 40000 years of imprisonment each. 40000 years. The judges must have been very very angry. Chinese history buffs would know that our wonderful Chinese history dated back to Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors 5000 years ago. That was when demigods were the kings and everyone could fly. Aye, it was a wonderful era. And a mighty long time ago. But a mere fraction of the sentence melted out by the courts. And the best part is that under Spanish law, the maximum jailterm for anyone is 40 years. I must be missing something here.

In other news, Ah ma made walnut cake today. We haven’t had that in a long time now. The price of flour has risen 30%. Again, I must be missing something.

But I do love the walnut cake. Yummy.
