I hope I didn’t keep all of you waiting. I was so tired last night I even went to bed without having supper. That’s how tired I am. Let me tell you why I am so tired.

We went to the gardens and I walked for half an hour. Half an hour is not a lot but I brisk-walked almost all the way. And I even ran for some distances. I’ll have you know that is real tiring. Just think of how short my legs are in comparison to yours and the distance I covered. Ah gong went with us there and that silly old man was looking at all the plants and even chatting up random guys to talk about the trees. Trees aren’t the only nutty things in the garden.

Then when we came back, Merrilyn brought me out to the garden to welcome passers-by. It was lovin’. We stayed out until it was dark. Until Ah bee screamed for my return. It was Sunday afterall, she said, and the neighbours do want a good rest. I obliged coz I was hungry.

So I had two dinners. It does not explain why I didn’t have supper. I didn’t have supper coz I was tired. Not because I was too full from the two dinners.


I love Ah ma’s big tummy.

I stepped all over it just now. It’s wonderfully round. Terribly soft. Perfect for sleeping on.

My Ah gong is back. He didn’t bring me any presents. I told him not to. Believe in Made in China? Not now.

He did bring back a small bust of his own likeness. It’s made of mud. Or clay. Or something. He left it in the dining room. Ah bee told him to remove it coz she said she might lose her appetite looking at it. Fomfomfom said he should have made one of my likeness. Then we would display it proudly in the driveway. On a column. No less.


Ain't worth it

My ear, my ear
Be good and
Be smooth once again
Don’t stink no more

I would hate to go to the vet again.

On a separate note, we bumped into someone familiar at the gardens today. He was duly embarrassed so we promised to keep mum. That’s all.


It was a yellow checkered handkerchief

Ah ma was too lazy to prepare dinner tonight so she decided to send them out to buy dinner instead. Actually, it’s more than laziness; Ah ma loves the bee hoon Ah bee bought last week. So much so that she declared all she wanted was the bee hoon.

But of course they did not just buy bee hoon. They bought a lot more. It smelt heavenly. I’m sure it tasted wonderful too. Even Merrilyn who is real picky about food finished everything. I didn’t get a single scrap though. So I sulked at the side, with my little yellow checkered handkerchief. Just me and my handkerchief. While them greedy people stuffed themselves. Grumble grumble.


Of pretty Shih Tzus

Cha drove Ah ma to my Ah yi-mama’s house just now to deliver the mooniepies. Ah yi-mama brought my sister and brother down with her. Cha says that they had their hair cut too. And they have a little ball of fur at the tip of their tail too. So basically, they look kinda like me! Of course I still look better.

We met the rabid Shih Tzu at the gardens again. He’s not so rabid anymore and he’s actually very pretty. Of course I am prettier.

I am the prettiest prettiest prettiest of them all.


Flotsam and jetsam

I forgot to write this the other day and Fomfomfom reminded me about it today. I was happily walking past Ah ma and she happily stuck her foot out and tripped me. Then she started cackling. Sometimes I really don’t know what to do with my Ah ma.

Ah bee got a shock when she peered into the pot containing soup today. It was bak kut teh but there were broccoli floating in there as well. Broccoli in bak kut teh is quite unheard of and she told Fomfomfom to look in there as well. They decided that Ah ma has outdone herself. Then when Ah ma was having her dinner, Ah bee asked which soup she wanted. There are 2, asked Ah ma. So Ah bee showed her the first pot, with the seaweed soup. And then the second, the bak kut teh with broccoli. Ah ma stared at it in disbelief. And then she started cackling. She had told Merrilyn to dump the vegetable into the soup. She was referring to the Chinese parsley, not the broccoli. This is what you get when you call everything green vegetables. What a boo-boo.


Just look at you

Uh oh. Fomfomfom told me so many stories that I don’t know which to tell. Oh well, I know my dear readers aren’t all that interested in her stories; you probably wouldn’t get them anyway. Oh but I did hear something that everyone should know about. There is a lesson here to be learnt. Gals, NEVER pick a tube dress as your wedding dress. And guys, always watch your feet and NEVER step on your bride’s train. Of course it didn’t happen at Green Pot’s wedding; she was smart enough to choose a dress with straps. And Onion knew where to put his feet. But I say it again, there is a lesson to be learnt here

I didn’t want to play with Ah bee in the garden today. The novelty wore off. I know what I said yesterday but it’s my prerogative to change my mind so shush. I did play with her later in the night but we were running upstairs instead of in the garden. Same game, different place, equally fun.

I slept on Fomfomfom’s stummy while she watched tv. It was nice and soft and it was lovin’.

Lynn came to give Ah bee mooniecakes just now. Cha was in the shower when she heard me barking, then the gate opening. She thought that I had run out of the house and she ran out of her room without combing her hair. When she realized what was going on, she gave Fomfomfom a earful for giving her a heart attack. Fomfomfom gets everything in this house I tell you. Then Fomfomfom asked Cha if she was so worried, why didn’t she run out with shampoo bubbles on her hair? I’m not sure what Cha said but zhen ling ren bu man yi ya! *giggles*

Fomfomfom was out of the house real early today. I think she was up at 5. She must have been real quiet coz I slept through it. She came back to 2 and she was all excited about some Silky Terrier called Peanut. She was supposed to go attend some tea ceremony and what did she do? She went into the neighbour’s house to play with their dog. C’est too much, this Fomfomfom. And she even took pictures with the dog. I am not very happy about it.

But today is a happy occasion and we shall not talk about unhappy stuff. You know when people get married, the relatives and everyone else will look at the bridal car’s number plate and they would go buy 4D? The last time (or was it the last last time) Fomfomfom was the driver, they struck 4D with the number. I don’t know what prize they won but by the time it was divided up so many ways, Fomfomfom didn’t come back with much. So I told them I wanted my own ticket. If I win, I take all. And I’ve even decided on the numbers I want- 0000. I heard that buying the 24 permutations would increase my chances of winning so I want that too. 0000, 24 permutations, 1 big 1 small. Yes, I must remind them.

We went to the condo today. That’s coz Ah ma wanted to go buy lotus paste and salted duck eggs for her moonie pies. Yes, it is that time of the year again. Did you know that salted duck eggs are now 90cents apiece? They used to cost a buck for 4. Property prices aren't the only things going up these days. My tai ma was horrified when she heard that the eggs are almost a dollar each now; she told Ah ma to make moonie pies after the Mid Autumn Festival. I wouldn’t want to eat moonie pies after; I only eat before. It’s always about the anticipation, is it not?

I had a most uneventful hou-hou session at the garden today. Then Ah bee saw how bored I was so she removed my leash. Initially I didn’t realize I was free but I soon did. Then I started darting around the garden, away from Ah bee who was chasing me. Then we switched roles and I chased her. I chased her from the garden, into the house, out the kitchen into the back and then by the side of the garden to the front again. Then me and Ah bee, we took turns chasing each other. She would chase me, slap my backside, and then I would chase her and bite her thigh. Then the procedure gets repeated. It is a tag game of sorts. It was so fun, but exhausting- we were out of breath within 15 minutes. I will need to tell them I want to play this game everyday. The exercise would do them good too. They need it.

I slept through the 2 hour show that Ah bee was watching. Then Fomfomfom came back at midnight. The poor gal was exhausted so you will have to wait till tomorrow to hear the stories from the dinner. Stay tuned.


Dang dang dang dang!

Fomfomfom went out after dinner and she came back with Scottie all ribboned with flowers. Fake ones. That’s coz Green Pot is getting married tomorrow and Scottie will pick her Onion up and send him to her house. Then they will go to the hotel together. Fomfomfom is the driver tomorrow and Green Pot has already given her a big ang pow. She will have to be at Onion’s house early. Onion asked her to join them for breakfast at the coffee shop near his house but Fomfomfom declined; she has no desire, she says, to eat breakfast with a bunch of men she didn’t know who will be more interested in her cleavage than the breakfast in front of them.

They all went down to look at Scottie with all the ribbons and flowers. Ah ma was particularly excited; someone should tell her it’s not her daughter getting married. Cha offered to carry me down but I refused. Who knows for sure I wouldn’t end up on the bathroom counter. They are a real sneaky bunch; you can never be too careful with them.

I told Fomfomfom that I want to be the flower gal tomorrow. I’d wear my Tigger suit. It’s reserved for real formal occasions you know.

I must remember to get them to iron it.

Ah ma went out with Cha in the afternoon and I couldn’t sleep without Ah ma. So I waited for her downstairs until they got back and I was really tired coz I missed my afternoon nap.

Fomfomfom squirted herself in the eye when she pressed for the shower foam. It stung her eye really badly. Then she saw that there was acid in the ingredients of the foam so she decided to go see a doctor. She got a shock when she saw the doctor coz she looked just like Sister Yakity Yak. But it wasn’t Yakity Yak coz Yakity Yak was on her way home when Fomfomfom went out. Anyway, the eye is good. Fomfomfom inquired about the swollen lips too and the doctor said it’s not herpes. The bad news is she doesn’t know what it is either. Clueless, like me.

Cha and Ah bee played with me just now and they kept saying, “Fetch!” They looked real happy for the 7 or 8 times I chased my little red ball, picked it up and dropped it in front of them. Then I got bored and decided that ball-watching is much easier than ball-chasing.

Those wretched gals had KFC for supper. And they didn’t give me any. Wretches.
