Um.

A woman came over to pat me today in the gardens. She said I reminded her of her dog, a Shih Tzu-Terrier mix. She couldn’t stop looking at me and touching my head, commenting how much I remind her of her dog. I think her dog is not around anymore coz she looked like she was going to cry. Even after we said goodbye, she kept turning around to look at me. Poor woman.

They started cleaning my right ear again coz it smells funky. The vet woman just gave me the clear last week when I went to get my backside squeezed. How quickly the bateria develop. But it’s okay- the Panalog will take care of that. Speaking of which, Fomfomfom threw out most of my old medicine from donkey years ago, including the eye drops for my ears. *giggles* And the Caesar canned food which expired in 2006. Oops. I take after Ah bee- we’re both rubbish collectors. She used to fish out the things that Cha and Fomfomfom threw away and keep them in her drawer. Really a poon soh collector that one.

 

Bats. All of them.

The bat came back. Okay I am not sure if it’s the same one but there was one hanging upside down from the curtains just now. Ah bee thought she would go closer and take a picture of the little fella but when she got close enough to see its face, she freaked out. Then she ran out of the house to where Fomfomfom and I were, and she shut the door behind her. It started flying around wildly in the house when Ah gong went after it with a net. That was when Ah bee started screaming. She was so hysterical and I think it rubbed off Fomfomfom coz she tried to duck under the table. I could see Merrilyn laughing at them both from where I was standing. When Ah gong wanted to open the door to chase the bat out, Ah bee refused to let him. So for a while, we were all outside while Ah gong was in there chasing the stupid bat around. Poor Ah gong eventually managed to chase the bat downstairs where it then flew outta the front door.

It was fun.

 

I didn't strike Toto. =(

It’s Yuan Xiao today. We didn’t eat tang yuans coz we’re not big on that over here. Generally I think Singaporeans are not big on traditions traditions per se. But we are big on one thing over here- gambling.

I think it’s a Chinese thing. It’s in our blood. It’s like how the Chinese eat everything you can possibly imagine. It’s in our blood. Our ancestors used to say- anything that moves and has its back to the skies can be eaten. That reminds me of the tortoise soup Ah gong brought back the other day. Apparently it tastes like chicken. Chicken of the sea. Hmm, I thought that’s tuna.

But I digress. Over here, we bet on almost everything. Every house is a gambling den during CNY. But the national favourite is lottery. We play that all year round. We have the 4D, Toto, Sweeps and all. And today, today is special. Because today is the 15th day of CNY. So today, we have the Hongbao Toto.

The draw for the Hongbao Toto this year is $10million. So Ah bee told everyone to cough up $7 each so that she can go buy 10 sets of numbers. She was about to take the money from my shoe box when Ah ma paid my share for me. Kiss kiss Ah ma.

And so 930pm came and our best bet only matched two numbers. Ah bee and I, we were devastated. Because we had a good feeling about this. But it was not to be.

I am just glad Ah ma paid for me.

 

I hate traditions

This one in particular. I was so happy when they forgot last year and I was hoping they would again this year. But noooooooo, they didn’t. Stupid girls. Every year during CNY, they would peel an orange and use the skin to make some sort of a hat for me. Then they would put it on my head and take a picture. Every year they’ll promise that the next year they would buy three pomelos and make pomelo hats for themselves but they never did. Anyway, so they were trying to get me to wear the orange skin but I refused to let them have their way. Ah bee tried to pick me up but I bit her. That’d teach her for making that hideous thing every year.

In the end they sort of gave up and we put the orange skin on Yongqi instead. We should do this from now on. By proxy.

And that was CNY 2005, if you were wondering.

 

Ah bee 2, Fomfomfom 1, Cha 0

Lydia Sum passed away today. She’s only 61. Everyone knows that she has been sick for two years now but still, it’s shocking to hear the news. I feel so sorry for her daughter. She lost her grandmother and mother in a span of months. I know how she feels. It’s like when I was taken away from my Sugar mummy. But I have Ah ma now. She doesn’t. Poor thing.

As I am writing this, there is a bat downstairs. It flew across the room when Fomfomfom and Ah bee were watching tv. We aren’t exactly sure if it’s a bat but it sure doesn’t look like a bird. So it should be a bat. Anyway, Cha’s lucky she didn’t see the bat. She would have gotten a fright. That woman’s scared of flying cockroaches, what more a flying bat.

Before Ah bee got a chance to calm down, she got another fright. She was waiting for Fomfomfom to come up. She heard Fomfomfom walking up the stairs and she knew exactly when Fomfomfom would turn the corner and appear in front of her. But still she nearly jumped outta her skin when she saw Fomfomfom. That Fomfomfom had black gooey stuff on her face and she looked utterly frightful. Ah bee tells me that it was ugly. Real ugly. Like the creature from the black lagoon. I believe her.

Fright scores of the night.

 

Ah ma won $28 today at MJ.

I really think she is getting better at this. She can take over the breadwinning in this house. Don’t be deceived when I say take over; there is no one to take over from. The current unemployment rate in this house, sans Merrilyn, is 100%.

Cha told Ah bee an unfunny joke just now. Fomfomfom laughed a little, saying it’s midly amusing. It’s something to do with naming Ah bee’s kids Ha, Mi and Gua.

Hurhur.

 

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.

 

Little onion's a girl!

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!
