Where did all that water go?

Someone needs to tell Ah gong that failures and successes are part and parcel of life only when one is not greedy and foolish at the same time.

In other news, I took a bath today. Last week, Ah ma was very bewildered coz there was very little water in the tub. She thought that Merrilyn didn’t draw enough for me. And it happened again today. Ah ma had prepared the bath this time and then when it was time for me to bathe, there was about half the amount of water left. That’s impossible, she says. That was when she realized that there was a crack and that’s where all the water went. The water didn’t even reach up to my belly. I hope they washed all the shampoo off me though. Otherwise will itchy. *giggles*

Juju: I can't tell you which mama types for me coz she told me not to tell. They do take turns so I can't say for sure anyway. Heh, no one is as IT-challenged as Fomfomfom. And she managed to get my diary up! Thanks for giving me your last rosette!


It's really krong krong this time

Today is MJ day. There are only 2 MJ gals coz the third MJ gal, she is an Ah ma now. And so she will not be coming for any more MJ sessions I think. None of us has seen the baby yet but we hear he looks like his daddy. Which is not a bad thing.

And so I spent my entire day watching the MJ gals again. My Ah ma won money again today. Could she be getting better at this? Shhhh, let’s not say it in case we jinx her. Anyway, we were supposed to go to the gardens the moment Ah bee got home. But it started raining before we could say, “Let’s go”. So we waited. When the rain let up, we dashed to the gardens. It was really gloomy but Ah bee and I, we love it. It’s so exciting to be out there when the weather is so menacing. Not Fomfomfom. She told us that she would drop to the ground and crawl back to the car coz she’s worried about the lightning. Of course she didn’t. It would be much easier to just sprint back to the car. Which we did. And not a minute to spare. It started pouring soon after. Heng ah!

I gotta repay my sleep debt from yesterday. Later.


Sunday picnic

I had such a busy day. Tai ma came in the morning and I was busy till about 2pm. Then I went to the gardens for my walk coz it looked like it might rain. When we came back, Jaclyn yiyi was in the living room waiting for us. Then Weizhi jiejie and Waiyin yiyi showed up too. They were going for a picnic. I was invited but they decided it was too much trouble bringing me along since I wouldn’t sit still and I went for my walk already. So off they went for their picnic. It was about two hours later when they came scrambling back coz of the rain. Ah bee said they were real lucky coz the rain started coming down about 2 minutes after they got into the car. And they were real lucky to have gotten 2 hours of perfect weather.

They continued the picnic in the house. For about 3 more hours, they giggled, ate, and giggled some more. This time I joined in. It was real fun. I only went up once to eat my dinner. I totally neglected Ah ma for them. Cha tried to get me away from them gals but it didn't work. It’s justified coz I have to play host to them. When I finally went up after they left, Ah ma scolded me and chased me with her Spare-No-one. So naughty my Ah ma.

I am exhausted. And I have a long day ahead tomorrow too. Good night everyone!

P.S. Weizhi jiejie, Fomfomfom thanks you for the lovely sushi. You will make a wonderful wife to a very lucky man.

P.P.S Hi Juju! Xie xie! I would love to write more in Mandarin but Dogster doesn't read Chinese characters. I live in Singapore. How about you? And you should really get your mummy to get you a Dogster page. =)


Sexy Ma

We went to pick Ah ma up today. I walked for about 20 minutes only but I was exhausted nonetheless. That’s coz half the time I was sprinting. *giggles* I always do that when I am in unfamiliar territory. Brings out the suaku in me. So on the way home, I slept on Ah bee’s stummy. I love Ah bee’s stummy. I think it has potential. Before long she’d have one like Ah ma’s. Big, round and soft. Just the way I like it.

I watched tv all night long coz Taiwan held her legislative elections today. I am happy to report that Sexy Ma will most probably be the next president. We love Sexy Ma.


Did you know that Dr No lost 10 kg?

Lemme tell you about the weather today. The weather was incredible. Unbelievable. It was hot in the morning. Then it rained. And then the sun was out again, with thunder rumbling in the background. Then it started pouring again. We were on our way outta the house when it started raining the first time. Fomfomfom and Ah bee were worried that I would be unhappy if we had gone back home so we went ahead. We went to our usual carpark but the rain was really coming down so we decided to head for another entrance. On our way there, we decided the rain was letting up so we went back to the same carpark. And then we sat in the car to wait for the rain to stop. It was wet. Splash splash sploosh sploosh.

We saw the same squirrels that we have been seeing for the past few days. There are two of them so I shall call them Chip and Dale. Chip and Dale were having a good time playing, jumping from one tree to another. I wanted to join them but I can’t climb trees. I tried. But I can’t.

When we were about to go home, Jan and Lynn yiyi appeared and Ah bee was so shocked to see them. She didn’t know this but we were all in cahoots. ALL of us. Fomfomfom and Jan yiyi were in contact the whole time we were walking but that Ah bee was oblivious to what was going on. And she was even telling Fomfomfom about how stupid surprises are coz they never work out. Fomfomfom and I, we were trying not to chuckle in case we gave the game away. And that Ah bee was so stupid she didn’t realize it even when them gals appeared. She asked if they were on their way to buy Twister Fries. Really? All the way here to buy Twister Fries? It was only when they plonked a party hat on her that she realized how incredibly stupid she is. Anyway, the gals had lots of food in the pavilion and Lynn yiyi even bought me muffins. I had one immediately coz it was piping hot and Jan yiyi fed me. The rest I doggie bagged them home.

Just now Fomfomfom was asking me what purpose I serve. Why was I created, she asked. Or what role did I play in evolution? She doesn’t see me in any part of the food chain and the fact that I have to cut my hair regularly seems to further convince her that my existence does not serve any specific purpose. I am the Happy Machine, stupid! Duh.


Happy birthday to me

It is my birthday today. I am four years and a month old. I didn’t get a piece of cake today. Today I got 10 macaroons. That’s coz Ah bee felt like having macaroons. Expensive macaroons. I told you inflation is serious. Anyway, I didn’t get a single macaroon coz those things are too sweet. And they were all chocolate. And I can’t have chocolate. I think it’s about time they start buying me things I can actually eat for my birthday. I’m wise to their gluttony. They’re just using it as an excuse to binge. I’ll let them get away with it for now.

My ears are starting to smell a little funky again. It might be because I got drenched at the gardens today. So Ah bee the quack says we will start treatment tomorrow. Who died and made her vet?

Words were exchanged today. It’s Ah ma versus the rest of them. I won’t side with Ah ma coz I don’t agree with her ostrich mentality. But I still love my Ah ma. Because Ah ma loves me.

We met a Beagle in the gardens today. A puppy. I turned and walked in the opposite direction when I saw him. Cha said that I am a tortoise egg. I can't deny that. I don't know how to behave around other dogs coz I seldom see other dogs. It's not my fault they keep me away from most dogs after that big thing tried to eat me the other time.

Everyone was out today in the afternoon so Ah bee and I, we held hands and took a nap. It was lovin’.

I watched a Taiwanese political programme just now. If there is anything they’ve got, it’s the freedom of speech. Anyway, that’s not the point. What I wanted to say is that while we were watching TV, Fomfomfom came home with 3 roasted sweet potatoes. She paid $6.80 for them. They weren’t kidding about inflation. The good thing is we found out that sweet potatoes are really filling. And it’s good for constipation too. Just FYI.


That moth should have flown towards the light.

We saw a dog on TV just now. It’s a poodle who lives in China and can walk 3km on its hind legs in 103 minutes. Fomfomfom says she can’t even walk 3km on hers. That is some poodle. On my fours, I can only walk about 40 minutes maximum. Ah ma said she wants to train me to walk like that too. I didn’t pay her any attention. I just did my thing- flipped over for her to rub my belly. And she did.

I love my Ah ma.


The wonderful ta gong fish

Today was kinda busy for me. I watched the MJ gals all day long. There were only 2 of them today coz the third is sitting at home, waiting to be an Ah ma. My Ah ma won money today. That is really rare if you don’t already know.

Then in the evening, we had a situation- a flat tyre. One of the MJ gal’s son was here to pick his mummy up. He somehow managed to puncture his tyre somewhere near the construction site near our house. They were outside for more than an hour trying to change the tyre. All this time, I was up in the garden barking instructions to them but no one was paying me any attention. They should have listened to me. I learnt how to change tyres when I was one. One of my many skills. Cha and Ah bee took me to the workshop to watch the professional mechanic change tyres when we had a flat at that time. I never forget what I learn. Anyway, they took one hour to change one tyre coz they refused to listen to me. Amateurs.

We also had a lesson in Moi 101 conducted by Ah bee just now. There is nothing I want to say about that.


Everyone loves Pingping. Deeply.

Just now I was sitting next to Ah ma and I was sniffing at her feet. They smell really nice so I licked her toes too. Fomfomfom saw me doing that and she told us a story about how Ah bee used to do that too nearly twenty years ago. Apparently there was once she walked into Ah ma’s room and Ah ma was lying on the bed reading, with her feet propped at the edge of the bed. Ah bee was sitting at the foot of the bed, sniffing away at Ah ma’s foot. Ah bee was really embarrassed when Fomfomfom got to this part of the story. I was young, she explained. But no one listened to her; we were too busy laughing. Then Fomfomfom, who doesn’t know how to quit while she is ahead, went on with her story. So Fomfomfom was laughing at Ah bee whom she caught sniffing at Ah ma’s feet. When she was finally done laughing, her curiosity got the better of her and she too, decided to take a whiff at those feet. By this time, Ah ma was laughing hysterically. She doesn’t remember any of these. I don’t blame her. I won't want to be reminded of how I have idiots for children.

I forgot to mention that I met a Shih Tzu at the gardens yesterday. Her name- I hope she is female- is Flower. Most interesting.
