My 'Sisters'

I have a new hamster friend, Fu Fu. Fu Fu is a Syrian hamster and I think he looks so cute (being the loyal friend that I am, I think he looks cuter than Bibi). Other than Fu Fu and Bibi, there are a few other hamsters in my life (all belonging to The Maid):

1) the late Mei Mei - She was such a sweet-natured hamster and loves to be carried and stroked. Mei Mei was about two-and-a-half years old when she 'expired' and according to mama, that's quite a good life span for a hamster. I miss her a lot 'cos we used to play together (they'd put her into this ball thingy and she can roll herself around the house.. When she got 'trapped' in a corner and I'd bark to get the attention of The Maid to help to 'free' her..). R.I.P Mei Mei..

2) Twiddle-Dee - She does nothing but eat and sleep and eat and sleep and eat and sleep.. Mama has nick-named her 'Obesity' due to her ever widening mid-section (fyi, she was eating when this photo was taken)... Although The Maid bought her many 'exercise equipment', Twiddle-Dee hardly ever uses them.

3) Twiddle-Dum - This one is always in panic mode.. the reason why she was given a bigger cage (a 'duplex') was because she is always running around in circles, like she is looking for something she lost. She looks so silly doing it that mama nick-named her (ok, this is not very nice..) - 'Stupidity'. (It was difficult trying to get her to stay still at one spot for long enough so mama could take this photo..)

Monday Blues...

Like Garfield, I don't like Mondays... actually I don't like Tues., Wed., Thur. and Fri too.. cos papa and mama will be busy at a place called 'work'. Meanwhile.. I am bored.. counting my little paws... well at least weekends are good.. Here's what I did..

1) Went to the playground

2) Went to the pool (Nope, didn't swim cos Mama said I am not allowed to..)

I also saw a St. Bernard.. wow.. he is only a puppy but he is H.U.G.E.. even bigger than my friend Rafv (and I have always thought that Rafv is a giant - ok, I am short, so what..!!) And his mouth.. I don't even know where to start! I think my little bro' Scuba would have a good time playing 'dentist' to this dog..

Happy Birthday to Me...

Here I am with my presents!! I received a sqeaky toy from Jack & Joey, treats and another squeaky toy from Aunty Cindy and Bingo, a squeaky stuffed dog and a squeaky stuffed bear from my godmama and Scuba, and my Mama and Papa gave me a new mat (the one that I am sitting on) as well as a blue, squeaky, stuffed cat.. (Somehow everyone seem to know how much I adore squeaky toys..!!) Godmama baked me a cake too.. it's personalised with my name on it! (Of course it tasted yummy too... I shared it with Bingo and Bobby and I think they agree with me!)
Oh and mama said that I must do something meaningful on my birthday... I must count my blessings that I have a loving family who adores me (ok, ok and spoils me rotten), and must reflect and think about all the other doggies out there who are not so lucky like me and all my friends. Mama was reading the accounts of some poor doggies on the ASD (Action for Singapore Dogs) website and the stories brought her to tears. Hence, we have decided to make a donation in my name... It felt good being able to do something nice for a change..
*** My special thanks to Aunty Cindy and Bingo, Jack and Joey, Godmama and Scubs. for the presents!! THANK YOU ***

Encounter from the 'Other' Dimension?

We are in the midst of the lunar seventh month (or otherwise known as the 'Hungry Ghost Festival') and so far, I am lucky not to have encountered anything myself (unlike my poor friend Rafv.. check out his encounter at:

Anyway, the other day The Maid and I had a strange encounter.. we were the only ones at home and she was in the study room while I was minding my own business (i.e sleeping). Suddenly the TV in the bedroom turned on by itself! There's really no reason for this to happen since no one was in that room then.. eeeekkss... Maybe 'it' was trying to catch up on the drama serials??!... *shiver*.... Well, I may look 'tough' in my commando shirt, but I am really not as brave as I look in that picture.. Here's a song that just came to my mind:
If there's something strange in your neighborhood
Who you gonna call?
If there's something weird and it don't look good
Who you gonna call?
Ok, I think it's about time to take out the Yellow Pages and let my paws do the walking...

Counting Down (yet again)..

I think I am bored 'cos I am always counting down days.. this time I am counting down to grandmama's birthday this coming weekend and my own birthday next week. Mama told me that I should do something meaningful on my birthday, so she suggested that I should make a donation to ASD and/ or SPCA. Thought it's a pretty good idea..

And here's my wishlist if I have a fairy godmother out there (like Scuba):
I want her... ... Anyone out there answering my prayers??

Uh-ohhhh... My Secrets are Out of the Bag..

Gosh.. mama told me that I have been 'tagged' by Herbie, who was tagged by Opy, who was tagged by.... (ok, you get the picture). Mama tried explaining the game to me and being the smart boy that I am, I understood it immediately.
Anyway, here's what my mama said - The player of this game starts with "5 weird things/habits about yourself." Then you tag 5 friends and list their names. The furries who get tagged need to write on their blogs about their 5 weird things/habits, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. Don't forget to leave your victim a comment that says "you're tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.
Here are my 5 weird habits/ things (sshhhh... keep them to yourself):
1) When I am left at home alone, I take 'revenge' by peeing near grandmama and grandpapa's favourite antique vases.. (*smirk*.. sweet revenge for leaving me at home alone. And yes, I am fully toilet-trained under normal circumstances).
2) When you say 'Cross the Road' to me, I will ummm.. well, I will start to hump your arm..
3) I don't like it when papa hug/ kiss mama.. (cos she is all MINE). I will try to put myself between them when this happens or try to lick papa's face so that his attention will be diverted to me. (Oops, just got a scolding from mama cos she said I am sharing too much information).
4) When there is lightning and thunder, I find solace lying next to the Toilet Bowl.
5) It is my daily routine to follow The Maid into the bathroom when she is taking her shower.. (envious eh...)
I tag Rafv, Bingo, Jay, Fu Fu and Tommy! (Good luck guys..)

Bobby's Adventure

My friend Bobby ran away from home on Sun! He sneaked out of the apartment when his family opened the gate when they went outside to pray for the 7th month... (tsk tsk.. that naughty boy). His poor family went out to search for him but did not find him. In the evening, they started putting up posters.. Fortunately, someone found him wandering and sent him to a nearby police post (obviously this person did not see the poster that was put up). Bobby then got transferred to the Clementi Police Station that evening and the police there sent him to a pound in Ubi!
Luckily the person who sent Bobby to the police post finally saw the poster and contacted Bobby's family. Bobby's already 11 and my mama says that if no one claims him from the pound soon, he'd be 'put to sleep'.. .Hmmm... how do you put someone to sleep? Isn't it nice to fall asleep? ZZzzzz....
Oops sorry, dozed off for a minute there.. anyway, Bobby is back safely in the arms of his family now. Heard that he was so traumatised by his adventure that he did not eat and sleep well the first night he went home. Hiak hiak... so much for his macho image. I will definitely tease him when I see him downstairs next time..

Post B.B.Q

Mama received SOOOO many presents for her birthday... Many of them were from the nice aunties from her office and her friends. She received a watch from Bingo's mum; a beaded belt; a limited edition lipstick from M.A.C; a pot of lilies; a Dior handphone strap & countless ang baos (I LOVE ANG BAOS!!). The Maid bought her the dress that she'd been eyeing on for a while and her godson Scuba gave her a Coke mug with her name from a far-away place called Atlanta (plus several cans of coke and sprite..) --- I wonder if all those nice aunties will also remember my birthday in a couple of weeks. Oh, and papa got her the an organiser that I heard 'costs a bomb' (are bombs very expensive??!)..
Anyway, the B.B.Q on Sat was great.. perfect weather! Mama ordered a cake for herself and The Maid that had cute doggy ornaments. The 'official chef' for the day was papa.. he did a fine job cooking up 'flower crabs', prawns, chicken wings, pork seasoned with XO sauce, etc..
Well, my friend Joey had his birthday party at Sentosa on that day too and I read from his blog that they had a fantastic time. I am now looking forward to my own birthday on 23August where I will turn 7.. wonder if mama will buy me a cake like what the strawberry cake that Joey got.
**Aunty V, can I have one of those lovely doggy cakes too?? Pretty please??!

Presents!!.. (but none for me...)

Mama came home with a whole bagful of presents from Aunty Cindy, Aunty Viv & Aunty Pat.. (heard that Aunty Cindy gave The Maid something too..). Aunty Denise gave Mama a pot of white lily yesterday.. Heard mama telling me not to go near it in case I break the vase. As if I am that clumsy... tsk tsk..

Anyway, as I was looking at the colourful packages, I realised one thing ---- NONE of them were for me!! Hmm.. they are all sitting there waiting to be unwrapped tomorrow. Hope there's something inside there for moi...

Overheard the family talking about a BBQ on Sat to celebrate Mama and The Maid's birthday since their birthdays are only 4 days apart. Mama said that they'd bring me along too.. Yippee... I am so looking forward to it.. (think of all the little people, aka kids, that I can bark at!! And hopefully the 'illegal' food that I'd be fed..).

Oh.. and durians would be a GREAT idea too.. They had durians last Sunday and of course I got my share of it. It was %$@#&* fantastic.. I have never seen this fruit when I was in Aust., so when I first saw this fruit in Singapore, I was amazed.. how can such a yummy fruit be so prickly?? Anyway, a little thorn is not gonna deter me from eating the oh-so-tasty fruit inside!

Anyway, I still have no idea what I should get for Mama.. my piggy bank's almost empty... *whine*
Counting down my paws to Sat..
