A medley of wildflowers..

When Doggie was still around, we went for walks together. He loved to sniff everything– the grass, wildflowers, shrubs and trees! Our furry pal loved every moment in nature.

Today, while Blueberry and I were walking home from breakfast. We saw  local wildflowers growing by the roadside- the ones Doggie loved to smell.

I decided to bring some home.. Last Sunday was Doggie’s death anniversary, I wanted to write a post in remembrance of my dear friend. ♥

Back at home, the trio were gently towel dried, trimmed and assembled..

I think Doggie would name this trio- Happiness bouquet.

Seeing these flowers made me happy.. they brought back special memories and made me feel warm inside. 🙂

Happy Anniversary, Doggie. The past year was tough and it still hurts. I miss everything about you.
Take care, my sweetheart. Til we meet again.

For a better tomorrow..

I didn't like school, as a kid.. The long hours of sitting and learning was a bore.

I didn’t like school, as a kid.. The long hours of sitting and learning was a bore.

As children, we were once curious about the outdoors and new things.

We loved to play. There was an inexhaustible amount of energy in us.

But as we grew up, we were no longer the way we were.. I guess our school systems is partly responsible for this change.

Learning should be fun.. I wished the school system I attended was different. Instead of confining children to learning in classrooms, lessons could be conducted outside.

Ecology (or science) in the great outdoors, maths at a supermarket (why not?) or speech and drama role plays for english.. and lots of fun activities and sports too!

I hope when my children go to school, a better school system would be available for them. It would be difficult to see them go through what I experienced.

Red roses are love..

Roses are red, violets are blue. Sugar is sweet, so are you.

I have a special love for red roses… My heart melts every time I receive them.

These delicate flowers remind me of the love Blueberry and I have for each other.. And all the special moments we celebrated together.

A single stalk, a bouquet of three, half a dozen or a dozen.. Red roses are the perfect gift for me for any occasion. 🙂

Months after February..

This evening, we went for dinner in Chinatown.

While walking towards the coffee shop, I saw an interesting shop across the road.

All the items in the shop were red.. It sparked curiosity in me to check out the shop.

It turned out to a traditional chinese wedding shop! Ahh.. Red is considered to be an auspicious colour for chinese weddings, therefore most of the items in the shop is red in colour.

They had an impressive choice of ang bows (red envelopes for money) to choose from.. Look at that!

Seeing all the ang bows reminds me of Chinese New Year! :D It is Chinese New Year yet? Nope, not yet! Besides Chinese New Year, these wonderful red packets are also given out in celebratory occasions, weddings or a birth of a baby.

I love receiving ang bows more than giving them. Hehe.. 🙂

After a quick browse, I walked over to the coffee shop where everyone was waiting. Along the way, I spotted Chinese New Year decoration outside some shops.

Yellow pineapple lanterns and red paper decorations hanging from the ceiling.

Chinese New Year was in February; the decorations must have been there ever since. Although it’s off-season now, these decorations are left there throughout the year to welcome luck, prosperity and health.

A fine mist of rain..

A fine mist of rain.. who would expect this to turn into a thunderstorm?

It was a peaceful late afternoon.

The gentle breeze slowly transformed into gusts of strong winds.

A spray of fine mist started.. I thought it was a passing shower.

Suddenly, a clap of thunder.. and came a thunderstorm!

.. I shrieked in shock and darted home.

How unpredictable the weather is!

Is election coming?

Sometimes, Blueberry and I discuss the current issues in the country.

I find politics an interesting topic, but I can never be a politician.

Even when the salary of the Singapore Prime Minister is the highest paid in the world (Sdg $2.2 million dollars after a wage reduction!), I wouldn’t never pursue a political career.

The role of the PM is too daunting for me.

Sorry lah, Daily prompt.. I don’t think I would run for PM of the net. Blueberry would be a better candidate. 🙂
