I moped and I moped

but still I didn’t get to go to the gardens until it was almost 6 coz Cha was watching tv and Fomfomfom wasn’t about to scare the good folks at the gardens on a Sunday. Ah ma tried to cheer me up by offering to bring me to the garden to bark at passersby first but I didn’t bite. I will not settle for anything less. My heart is set on going to the gardens and to the gardens I shall go.

It was late when we got there and as usual the carpark was full. Where Fomfomfom always parks along the roadside was packed too so we had to venture deeper into the residential area. We eventually parked outside this house. It’s not an ordinary house. By association to the 2 Rolls, Bentley and Porsche parked at the porch. Or maybe it’s the huge fountain in the middle of the driveway. Or the Italian marble carvings on the façade. Maybe the 4 huge columns that right in front. Yes, it is not an ordinary house. It is the house of a person who has too much moolah but unfortunately doesn’t understand the meaning of subtlety.

Cha promised me an hour but I was too bushed so we left after 35 minutes. Right now I am watching tv with my Ah gong and Ah ma.

I finally got my Mickey Mouse pancake just now but I refused to eat it coz it smells rather bland. So Ah bee ate it up. Only coz everyone else didn’t want it either.

We went to pick Ah ma up from the condo just now. She was cleaning the place coz the electric grill gang is going to stay over tonight. I was invited but I politely declined- it’s more important that I keep my Ah ma company. My poor Ah ma, always slaving away for them three. They’re nothing but trouble. Ah ma should have heeded my advice a long time ago and thrown them away. What can I say? It fell on deaf ears. *giggles*

Anyway, at the condo, Ah bee carried me and we swung the swing. It was quite fun and I wasn’t scared at all. Then later, Fomfomfom joined us on the see-saw. It was so much fun we couldn’t stop giggling. The security guard stopped and took a double look. Obviously he’s never seen anything quite like it.

Today is my birthday. I am 3 years and 8 months old. Cha bought me a walnut cake and I took pictures with the cake and my flag. I had a little bit of the cake and it was wonderful. I think I will have some for breakfast tomorrow.

I had a lovely day at the gardens today. It was practically a party- Ricky was there, with Freddy and Mimi, Phoebe, Kait, Mel, Chipchip. We also saw 3 hounds in the distance. They were quite a strange sight. I didn’t get to play with them coz they were a little intimidating. The weather was beautiful. And oh, I did a Patch again. So I had to take another bath. I would rather not talk about it so let’s leave it at that.

Right now, Cha is still staring at her computer screen. Fomfomfom has gone to bed a long time ago with her sausage lips. A frightful sight, that Fomfomfom. We really need to keep an eye on her lest she scares the good folks out there.


I want to be a little starfish

Happy National Day to all! Today is my 4th National Day and I am excited as always. We had my little flag out and when I was watching the parade, the flag was in its stand on the table. I was feeling most patriotic and I sang I AM SINGAPORE really loudly. Wear it on your sleeve I say. Don’t be afraid to sing it like it is.

Anyway, today at the gardens, I got away from Ah bee who was grossly negligent. She was busy blowing her nose and had her hand through my leash. When I suddenly decided to bolt on seeing another doggie, the leash slipped through and I was free. She chased me for about 5metres, losing her slipper in the process, before stepping on my leash and that was the end of my little escapade. No one scolded her but I know she was really ashamed. She didn’t blow her nose for a really long time.

I did a Patch near the patch of grass when I usually freestyled. I was rubbing my head and one side of my body on the ground and they were most horrified; they thought I had ants on me again. But I didn’t and up till now no one knows why I did that. The cause was unknown but they do know the result- after that, I smelt like an… Oh I think I shan’t say it here. It’s so seditious and I know the commandoes in red berets will break into our house and arrest them for saying it. I like the commandoes- they are very handsome boys and they are first in the marching contingent. Jan yiyi’s brother Jared is one. But I still don’t want them bringing my mamas away. So shhhh all of you.

I had one big kibble and 2 small ones for supper just now. I don’t have much of an appetite. I would say that I caught the bug from Ah bee and Fomfomfom but no one would buy it coz they know I cannot catch the human flu. I shall blame it on the ugly Fomfomfom instead.


Crispy Cream

Ah bee and Cha came home with Crispy Cream doughnuts last night. I didn’t get any coz they are no good for me but I did get a donut soft toy in lieu. I heard that it makes a squeak if I bite into it. I was hoping warm custard would flow out when I bite, but according to Ah bee, there is only the squeak. And I will have to wait, until Ah ma gets it cleaned up before I can make it squeak.

Crispy Cream. It’s unbelievable isn’t it? How can cream be crispy? So I started to think. And then something in my head screamed Eureka! They must have taken a dollop of cream, rolled it around in cornflour like my Ah ma does when she fries things, and then dumped into hot oil. That’s how they get crispy. It is a wonderful idea- who would have thunk cream can be crispy too. No wonder the world is mad about them doughnuts. Wernie came over last night specially to get doughnuts. All the way here for doughnuts.

Today was an extremely hot day. And I had to take a bath. I am not too happy. Until I got some roasted goose and pork as compensation. Once again the Happy Machine is happy.


Hong Kong is good

Fomfomfom went out in the evening and came back with 2 strange women. They looked vaguely familiar so I searched my memory files and located their profiles. Cha! Ah bee!

It was a happy time. They brought back roasted meats and doughnuts and lots of dvds and other assorted stuff. I got a bit of the roasted pork and roasted goose. I liked them a lot, but I was wondering if they've got roasted swan too, the kind in the botanical gardens. I told cha and ah bee to bring back some roasted swan the next time they go to hong kong.

Hong kong. I don't know where it is, but I told ah bee I like it already for its offerings. So maybe we can go there tomorrow. We can make it a daily affair, like the gardens. Ah bee says it's a polluted place, so we can't go everyday.

Ah bee got me 2 brand new water bottles from crown casino and wynn casino in macau. I tried to hide the wynn bottle but I can't decide where so I carried it in my mouth for a long time.

Tonight I will sleep in cha's room, which is just as well, coz fomfomfom is too ugly to sleep with. She will scare me, even in the dark.


No problemo

You know, at first fomfomfom couldn't sleep, what with me in her room at night. But there's no problem these days coz she's getting more and more sleep deprived so we both sleep wondrously at night.

There's no unsolvable problem.

Today ah ma went out shopping for a spade. On her way back in the bus, she saw an advertisement for curry puffs so she walked under the hot sun all the way to the petrol station to buy 3 curry puffs. But I didn't get no curry puff.

That's a problem. But it's not unsolvable.

Then fomfomfom was watching tv outside, so I walked into her room and ate my supper myself. Fomfomfom heard the crunch of my kibble and came in and praised me for being such a good girl. Beam.

It was 2am last night when I was sleeping in fomfomfom's room. I had my nose under the door coz sometimes I adopt that fashionable posture. Then a lizard, oh the audacity, it ran across the floor outside the room, right in front of my nose, under my nose, if you will, not literally.

So I howled and gave fomfomfom a shock, who wasn't sleeping, by the way. She was sitting in the darkness blowing her nose into a tissue and reading a magazine by the sorry table light. She had quite a honker last night.

But I digress. The point is, the lizard, of course. Fomfomfom, the clueless human she is, had no clue about the lizard. I kept growling and barking, and she was frightened. Perhaps a burglar, I read her thought bubble. But I won't keep quiet coz I had to have a go at that audacious lizard, and fomfomfom finally bravely opened her door. Then I sniffed about the laundry basket and the lizard ran noisily across the papers on the floor. That's when fomfomfom's thought bubble heaved a sigh of relief.

Then she boasted to ah ma this morning about how she opened the door for me. She related it like it was a story but I knew she was braggin' coz she left out the part of her trembling in the darkness.

Also today, ah ma finally thought that I was too lonely and bored. She told fomfomfom to take her nose out of her book and bring me to look at the night sky, poor pingping, she's so bored.

Maybe from now on ah ma will bring me out more often to play. Yippee yay yay. Giggle.


I heard the Singapore flag

It was a fine day. As such I was welcoming passers by in the garden after my walk around the estate. Ah ma and Merrilyn were plucking weeds and fomfomfom was reading a book. It was real fine.

Then there were some rude noises from the sky. Everyone was looking up, even the elusive neighbours, they were out at the porch and looking too. Ah ma pointed to the sky but I didn't see anything.

It apparently was one chinook and four helicopters. The chinook had a Singapore flag hanging below it.

To think, I heard them 'copters and 'nook and the flag. It was sad I didn't see them, but I am inspired and I have a mini flag somewhere. I'm going to hold it later and sing some national day songs loudly at the porch at night so passers by can hear me and be inspired too.

I am Singapore, I am Singapore, a nation strong and free forevermore. Beam.

If I were to stow, I would stow to New Zealand. Coz fomfomfom has a strange fascination with the place and I wanna see how new it is. Besides, ah bee promised to buy me 2 sheep who will call me mama. I can boss them around and they will have to say, baa baa maa maa.

Ah bee and cha, they are in hong kong. Ah bee promised to buy donuts back. Crispy creams, I heard, I want to eat maybe 4 or 5. Then I will keep 2 for my sheep who will say, thaank youu maa maa donuut yuum yuum.

I have to depend on ah bee and cha to bring back the donuts coz I don't want to stow to Hong Kong. The weather is hot and my sheep will have to cut off their wool and they may be mistaken for cows and it will hurt their dignity. I don't know if they know how to say moo moo, but I guess they won't have to coz I will protect them and give them donuts.

I forgot to tell ah bee and cha I want 2 original glazed donuts and two filled with peanut butter. For me. For my sheep they want two filled with grass. They have never eaten grass from hong kong and we wonder if the grass is sweeter.
