Sio bak and water chestnuts

June 14th 2007 11:34 am

Because the sio bak is sio-ed, it is heaty. Water chestnuts, on the other hand, have what we call a cooling effect. Therefore, when one has sio bak, one must have water chestnuts. To balance things out a little. And for good measure, one can throw in some squid. It does nothing for the body; it just tastes so good.

Burp.

 

The dirty auntie

We met a cousin of mine at the gardens today. He is a Lhasa Apso. His ancestors came from Tibet while mine came from China so we are cousins of sorts. I didn’t catch his name but I do know that he is 5 months old. He’s black and white just like me and everyone got a shock coz we look so alike. He even has the same water bottle. Except his is blue coz he is a boy and mine is pink. We spent about 5 minutes barking at each other until they decided that it was enough and dragged us away. I think I like him. We can all become friends. Maybe I’d introduce him to Madame Butterfly.

 

Sio bak!

I love sio bak! And so does Lynn and Janice. Lynn likes it so much she wants to call my Ah ma to tell her how much she loves it. Ah bee told her that she will get Ah ma to sio one for her. And then she will tie it using a piece of string and bring it to her house. And Lynn will be a very happy girl. Anyway, I had plenty of sio bak for dinner tonight. So I am a happy girl. Just like Lynn. Except I am happier. Coz I got more.

 

I have a complaint.

I don’t want Ah bee to hold my leash while I walk anymore. She doesn’t run fast enough. I was chasing Madame Butterfly but I couldn’t catch up all because that lardbucket was too slow. Actually, I think she did it on purpose. (She can’t possibly lose out to a 50 year old obasan right?) Which makes it worse. I screamed when I saw that Madame Butterfly was getting away from me. That worked. They stopped and I went to sniff her backside. Her owner, I think I will call her Auntie Butterfly, she told Madame Butterfly to sit down and she said, “Xiao Die, jing chi. You’re the older sister. Jing chi.” I think Fomfomfom almost fainted when she heard that. Then she tried to teach me to be like Madame Butterfly but of course she failed miserably. Jing chi does not feature in my book.

At night, Ah bee and Fomfomfom were talking about names for doggies. There’s the Confectionary Series, the Cookies, Muffins, Egg Tarts and whatnot. Then there is the Insect Series, from which Madame Butterfly derived her name. And the Fruit Series, of which I head. They came up with the Soya Products Series. There would be Dao Kee, Dao Pok, Dao Gua, Dao Huay, Dao Joo amongst others. As usual, I think they are mad.

 

Happy birthday to me....

I had a most miserable birthday. I am three and a half years old today. And no one paid me any attention. Ah ma spent the whole morning and a good part of the afternoon making bak zang and she didn’t give me a belly rub until she was done. I didn’t have lunch and I threw up three times in the afternoon. We went to the gardens and when we got back I had to take a bath. Those greedy gals had Macs for supper and I didn’t get a Happy Meal. I did get a nugget and one fry though. Because it is Sunday night, they watched tv till late and ignored me.

And I didn’t get a cake.

 

Porky

I had lotus root for dinner tonight. I like lotus root. I told Ah ma that she will have to make me chestnut and lotus root dumplings. I think they will taste very fine indeed. My Ah ma can make anything taste good. Like today, she was supposed to cook sweet and sour pork. But she ran out of ketchup. So she fried the pork with chili sauce instead. It was brilliant.

And this afternoon, Ah bee and Fomfomfom caught me humping the floor. I am a little embarrassed.

I didn’t meet any of my friends at the gardens today. No Kait, no Patch, no Madame Butterfly. That’s coz the weather wasn’t too good. It started raining about 20 minutes into our walk. But we did run into this angmoh couple. It’s the 3rd time we’ve seen them. They always bring their granddaughter along. I reckon she is about 1-2 years old so she will have to call me mama. Anyway, she’s really coy and she would look down whenever Fomfomfom says hello to her. Fomfomfom is in love with her I think. You don’t know Fomfomfom; she would avoid people, and dogs whom we sort of know, in a very loose sense of the word, in the gardens. But today, she went up to the couple coz she wanted to look at the baby gal. And Fomfomfom said, if she ever has kids, they will have to be as cute as that gal. Coy. And smiley. It’s very important. Surly kids are no good.

 

Madame Butterfly

I made a new friend today. She is a 7 year old miniature Shetland Sheepdog and her name is Xiao Die. I call her Madame Butterfly.

Anyway, I chased Madame Butterfly around the field coz I wanted to play with her but she was a little scared of me for some strange reason. There was some church camp activity for kids and the whole bunch of them, I dunno, like 20 of them, ran over to pat me and Madame Butterfly. Fomfomfom and Ah bee decided that the situation was getting a little outta hand so we left. And Madame Butterfly left too, a couple of minutes later.

I like the gardens. More each day.

And oh, they gave me chestnuts again today. But I didn’t feel like having any. So I didn't.

 

Chestnuts!

I like chestnuts. They are sweet and juicy. I had about 4 chestnuts today. They say that I can’t have too many coz my stummy will not be able to take it.

I told Cha to give Ah ma 5 bucks tomorrow. Ah ma will use the 5 dollars to buy me my own bag of chestnuts.

I can’t wait.

 

Zzzzz

I had a boil-like thingy on my eye lid this morning. It gave Cha a fright coz she didn’t know what it was. I told her that I encountered a most ferocious ant and even though I conquered the beast I suffered a few minor injuries in the process. She didn’t buy it. Coz she realized it was a mozzie bite.

We met Patch and gang at the gardens today. There’s Patch, Phoebe, Mel and some other fella’s name which I didn’t catch. They were playing fetch, all 4 of them at the field. I wanted to join them but I don’t know how to fetch. So I just watched them. And attempted to sniff their behinds. Being the scaredy cat I am, I ran whenever they tried to come near. I don’t really know how to play with the other dogs; I only know how to play with my jiejie and korkor. But I am getting better I think. I didn’t exactly run when Phoebe tried to play with me. And oh, another dog came to join us. He looks like a mini version of Patch. Even Patch got a little confused when he first saw the newcomer. I don’t blame him. Patch and that newcomer, they are like a tomato and a cherry tomato.

Tomorrow I shall go to the gardens at 5. To meet my friends. I like.
