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.
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.
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. 🙂
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! 😀
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.. 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!
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. 🙂
Is elections coming? Time to not fool around.
Picture from Angmodan.com
I been hearing rumors that the local elections are coming! Wonder if they are true.. Hmm.
I checked out the Daily Prompt and saw this..
Dear Daily Prompt, How is everyone going to be pranked if they know they will be pranked? Are you trying to prank us? Nice try, but it not funny at all.. 😦 Love, Yours Truly.
To all my lovely readers, Happy April Fool’s Day! Have a enjoyable time pranking others and vice versa. 🙂
If human beings have taglines.. what would be mine?
I can’t really answer that, because I don’t really know exactly what I want in life.
But I do know there is one sentence I say every day without fail..
“Aye.. What’s for Lunch?”
Butter and Garlic Naan… with Butter Chicken, Palak Paneer and Mutton Masala.
Blueberry’s lunch – chicken biryani.
Youmian.. the thinner sister of Banmian. The noodles are cooked in fish stock, then served with minced pork, few strands of bok choy and dried anchovies.
Penang asam laksa I found out on Wikipedia that CNN Travel ranked Penang Assam Laksa 7th out of the 50 most delicious food in the world! That’s pretty amazing.
Shiromaru tamago for lunch.
Corn chips with guacamole, salsa and cheese dip.. An iced cold beer makes the meal complete. 🙂
Birthday Lunch at Crystal Jade. Dan dan lamian (Dandan noodles) with xiao long bao (steamed pork buns).
Calories in Fish soup= 136kcal Calories in white rice= 280kcal Total calories= 416kcal (It’s a Winner!)
It’s Bak Chor Mee for lunch! Bak Chor Mee is also known as minced pork noodles.
It’s Mutton Biryani for lunch!
Sizzle it your way! Striploin on a hot plate.
I revisited my earlier posts and realised there are 12 posts on lunch! 😮
I guess this shows how lunch is a BIG part of my life.. heehee.
To all the readers around the world.. “Have a great lunch today! Cheers and Stay Awesome!” 🙂
It was many years ago.
Christmas was round the corner.
Decorations were up and the holiday mood was evident in office.
One of my colleagues, Brandy(who sat next to me) was daydreaming about Christmas.
“I wish someone will kiss me under the mistletoe,” she sighed.
Kiss me under the mistletoe… how romantic.
Before she could continue, another colleague, Whisky walked pass hurriedly.
She was always in a rush.. and she was always hungry.
(I think hungry is an understatement).
Whisky heard half of the sentence and blurted out..
“What? Mee Soto? WHERE?!?”
Kiss me under.. Mee Soto?
Mee Soto is a noodle soup dish.
I don’t think kissing under noodles sounds that romantic.
Brandy and I couldn’t contain our laughter. 😀
The setting sun behind the amazing architecture.
I’m glad I got the chance to visit the Water Cube in Beijing.
Unconventional architecture is always a mystery to me.. How did the architects come up with such brilliant designs?
Hmm.. I wonder.
If they are tasked to design a kitty skyscraper, how would the designs be like? 🙂
