Sometimes i run away. I know i am really too old to be running away but sometimes i still do it :) I am a free soul.

I ran away from home last Friday and spend the whole weekend walking around and round and taking pictures. Taking pictures always make me happy. The need to get out and about and to see things is one of the reasons why my life is such and the reason why i am still without another half by my side. I have not really searched for my other half through mountains and valleys and the great seas and i still have not found him yet. Ahh... oh woe is me. I might just end up old and crinkly with no one to hold my hands :(

After leaving some instructions on the white board for my dad to feed Dom his food and medicine, i told my Curly i am taking off. He tried to fit into my backpack but lately... he's kinda on the heavy side. He couldn't even fit one of his feet into my backpack. *LOL* I think i might just have to put him on a vegetarian diet soon.

Dommy: Who you calling FAT? I am just big boned you know. And its just all furry furs.

Dad sent me off in the morning to the railway station and he even packed my favourite egg tarts for me to eat just in case i got hungry on the way. What can i say... i am still daddy's little girl :D

These eggtarts are yummy fellas. My all time favourite... and you kind of have to queue to buy them. I guess my dad loves me quite a lot. Yes yes... i am gloating.

Since it was also my 50th birthday (i think its my 50th or was it 60th cos i stop counting after my 30th), my dad went to the bakery early in the morning and got me a white chocolate cake :) The bakery was just opening and they didn't have anyone to write my name on the cake.

My dad came home with the cake and insisted to put a letter N to spell my name. So he took out some red paper and tried to cut the letter N real fast as i have a train to catch in an hour's time. He cut a few times and finally got the letter N.

My beautiful cake. It was more beautiful with the letter N.

I said goodbye to my Curly... grabbed my bag and my dad sent me off to the railway station. I bet Dom was howling for quite a while after i left. He always howls sadly when i leave him. I didn't know about this until my sister told me about it. I went out for a while and left him in the house with my sister once. He just howled and howled. My sister was so scared and thought he was in pain. That was when we found out he howled when i am not with him.

I always choose to leave the ones that love me the most. But i always come back. I choose to run away on this birthday because i always run away from situations and things. I don't fight with anyone. I just walk away. I don't fight for what i want, because i believe that if it was mine to begin with, it will be with me in the end.

My journey on the train ended up in Kuala Lumpur. My friend picked me up and we went by car to another city. The historical city called Malacca.

I dragged.. practically dragged and forced one of my best buddies to take the day off work on Friday and spend the day with me :) She loves to be photographed and i love to photograph things and furries mostly. Don't tell her that. *LOL* I love to photograph doors, windows and buildings and she loves to have her photos taken.

She is one of my best buddies because she will always drop what she is doing and make time for friends like us. Even if we end up old and crinkly without a hand to hold one day, i know i will still have hands of family and friends to hold. It will be not quite the same but it will be okay. All you ever need is just a few good friends and family and a furry or two or three.. or maybe a lot of furries.

I believe some of us are always looking and looking for the other half to make us complete. I sure hope my other half is not sipping Tequila Sunrise in Timbaktu. It is a long way to Timbaktu :) I don't know if i know how to get there.

I am actually quite happy last weekend... my dad made my birthday most memorable. I am touched by his actions. Even though i am still getting nagged and nagged and nagged daily even though i am in my 50s now... i guess in his heart, i will always be his little girl.

I'm glad you had a great birthday. I turned 60 in September, but who's counting. I want some of that cake.

Poor Dom. Our dog Little Bit used to do the very same thing when my husband would leave the house. She doesn't anymore, but the noise she would make was very loud.

Have a terrific day. My best to Dom. :)

Happy, happy birthday! It's okay to run away every now and then. Unless you're a dog. Apparently that is NOT okay cuz the humans FLIP OUT. But with humans, it's okay a long as you remember to feeds the dog before you go.

It makes my heart happy that your daddy luvs you oh-so-much!

Wiggles & Wags,

I wish that I could run away once in a while. It would be nice to go off and spend some time along just doing what I want to do.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you. That was so sweet of your dad to make that special cake for you. I'll be celebrating my 50th next March.

Happy Birthday Anny! You do have a very special dad but he also has a very special daughter! We're glad you enjoyed some time away with your friend before coming home to sweet Dom!

Aww, I didn't know it was your birthday! Happy Birthday! I love reading your longer posts, I think it must be the way you write, it's very poetic. It's so sweet your dad to treat you on your birthday!
Since you say you and your friend don't need men, just each other, I would say you sound like the girls from 'sex and the city', I like them, but some people might be offended by that comparison. So, I'd say you and your friend are just two modern girls. :)

P.S. Keep eating dommy, you have some catching up to do after all that time you weren't ;)

Happy belated birthday! I like the idea of not counting after your 30s, lol... What's age but a number anyway, right? Those egg tarts do look yummy... Dommy would have been jealous!
