Ah ma and cha are away

I got hold of a cheesy horoscope book from cha's desk. It tells of my fate for 2009 and of course I was interested. So I am a sagittarius. My deepest need is to....hmm....expand mentally. My strongest virtue is my tremendous vision. No doubt due to my big and beautiful eyes.

I am most helpful to fomfomfom's sign financially, whereas ah bee is most helpful to me financially.My virtue is generosity, yet I must avoid being too generous with other people's money. I think this book is hinting I'm taking ah bee's money and giving it to fomfomfom.

When I read that I am over optimistic and that I tend to exaggerate, ah bee applauded. She whispered to fomfomfom that my enthusiasm for life every morning at 730am is rather overwhelming.

I told ah bee, my over optimism is complementary to your pessimism. You need me. Now let's sleep so that when we wake up, it's 730.

It's Ah ma's birthday today. I don't know how old she is because I can't count that high. But happy birthday Ah ma!

It rained all morning and all afternoon. I waited and waited but no one brought me down for my walk. I was in a bad mood all day. Until Fomfomfom brought me down at about four. It was still drizzling but we went down anyway. I heart Fomfomfom deep deep. We walked for 45 minutes and then Ah bee took over and we walked for another 45 minutes. I'm still a little shortchanged because I didn't get to walk in the morning but I guess I'll settle.

Cha and Ah ma were screaming something about the toiletbowl. It wasn't pleasant so Ah bee and I, we went to hide in the dark. Of course there was nothing to do in the dark so I got a bellyrub. Speaking of bellyrubs, the toothless security guard downstairs gives very good massages. I almost flipped on my back today for him to give me a belly rub but Fomfomfom threatened to wallop me if I did. She thinks it's not polite. I can't help it if everyone adores me.

And Fomfomfom was playing Flight of the Bumblebee just now. I told Ah bee that I am the Bumble in that song and for obvious reasons, she is the bee. She said it is mildly funny.

She's just holding herself back, that's all.


Sushi sushi

We met Nicky and his sisters today. They were upstairs on the second floor corridor and we screamed at one another like the last time. The second girl is four years old. Like me, she's only a baby. And she is very talkative. I don't mind that but Ah bee finds it hard to communicate with her. She asked Ah bee, "What time is 9 o'clock?" and ""What is Sushi coming?" and Ah bee couldn't answer her at all. I felt a little sorry for Ah bee. Just a little.

And then we met a little girl at the swimming pool who chased after us in her oversized swimwear. She was so cute. And much more coherent than Nicky's sister. She asked Ah bee if I bite and whether she could pat me. And she would giggle when she did. I like her. And she's four too! We're all four!

I met Lightning later. We jumped around and pretended to chase each other. And then I barked at her but she didn't bark back. That's coz she's Lightning, only seen and not heard.

Nicky's sisters came out again because their mummy wasn't home yet. They sang two songs for us. One was a song from the musical Rent and the other one they said it's from a game. Actually they only know one line from each song so all we heard were "Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes!" and "Come on everybody move your body!"

Little girls like us, we are so cute.


Swine and chicken.

Last night we couldn't get a good night's sleep. Coz the people at the construction site at the canal were making a lot of noise, piling and talking very loudly. It's bad enough they work weekends but now through the night? We're 12 floors up so I cannot imagine how the folks on the second floor felt. I think someone must have called the police because they aren't working tonight. I will sleep soundly tonight.

Fomfomfom and ah bee brought me to the groomer's today. Ah ma asked if fomfomfom has money to pay for my haircut. Ah bee said it's ok if we didn't have enough money. They'll just leave me with the groomer as collateral while they go home to get money.

I thought that was a bad idea, coz in today's deflationary environment, I bet they'd get a margin call from the groomer's before they can even make it home.


Ah ma goes marketing

I went for my walk this morning and suddenly I wanted to inspect the lift so ah bee obligingly held the lift for me to sniff. And what do I smell but....ah ma!

I followed ah ma's smell in the air and bounded to the carpark, and there ah ma was! She was about to get into the car with fomfomfom. I caught them and ah ma beamed and praised me for being a clever girl. Everyone fussed over me and I was real happy.

It was a wonderful start to a day.


All the better to see you with

Ah ma made soup tonight. It is for brightening eyes, ah ma informed me. And they all had some, and I had none.

Of course I was having none of it. Both from their perspective and mine. I told ah bee, while she was having the soup, ah bee, ah bee, my eyes are so big but they have lost some of their lustre due to lack of nutrition. Can I have some of that eye brightening soup?

Of course I can.


Bye bye yellow boots uncle

This morning I met the yellow boots uncle. He wasn't in his usual working t shirt and yellow boots. He told me he'd found a better job elsewhere, and I was happy for him. He was always the friendliest to me since I moved here and I will miss him.

I hope he will be happier in his new job.


Happy Birthday ah ma!

It is ah ma's birthday today and everyone got to eat birthday noodles. But they forgot to give me an egg yolk so I was a little unhappy. Nonetheless I have only good wishes for my ah ma coz ah ma loves me and I love ah ma.

Everyone is saying I look like a dirty little cat. Then I was a little confused and my mood wasn't good. So I bit ah bee when she tried to take away my tissue paper. The blood flowed down her finger and I thought a cat can't possibly achieve that feat, so I strutted and told ah bee, you. are. the. cat.

I am a doggie.


I can't help it if I'm short

Ah bee owes Cha $322.08. I told Cha that I would pay the 8 cents on Ah bee's behalf. But Ah bee told me that she only has 8 cents and she needs me to bail her out. So I need to come up with $322. But I don't have $322. Not even if I empty out my shoebox. Now I know how Ah Jek felt. I needed to touch Ah ma for that spot of money.

And I could have gotten it if not for my height. Ah ma was giving me a bellyrub and she told me that I have to give her a shoulder massage. I would have used that to ask her for the money but I can't reach her shoulders.

Do you think she'll settle for a toe lick instead?
