Blinking. I should probably stop blinking because time just goes missing each time i blink. We are trying hard for a post a week. *LOL* But a whole week went by and no blogging and not much commenting got done. And so... i should tape my eyelid down and stop blinking. ^.*

** Kids... please do not try to do this at home. Taping of the eyelids should only be done by blinking adults and done under expert supervision.

February 13... my dad turns 71. Since it was a weekday, none of my siblings could make it home. But Boy was home for his weeklong break from uni and dad was very happy. We bought a tiramisu cake and took it to my aunts house to celebrate it with my lil nephew who shares the same birthday as my dad. So James and Jayden both celebrated their birthday together.

Being the cruel cow that i am, i bought a lil plastic figurine that kinda resembles my dad. The resemblance is quite shocking *LOL* Well.. my dad is not as bald as Gargamel but the facial resemblance is quite close. Everyone had a good laugh and that lil figurine would be making more appearances for all my dad and all his siblings birthday.

the tiramisu... which was quite delicious

Jayden's cake was made by my aunt. It has all the characters of his favourite shows and that really put a big smile on the kid's face.

Here's Jayden playing with dad's ipad. He just turned two. Dom is waiting his turn to play on the ipad. He's worried as his vegetable plot in the Smurf village is almost ready to harvest.

We took dad to this place with those strange colourful lights to have his birthday meal. It has a good environment and very nice waiters. The food's not all that bad too.

Ahhhh... February 14. The day for lovers and for some people to make loads of money from flowers and chocolates. This simple drawing on the calendar is kinda sweet. You don't see much of these kind of drawings nowadays. I love this type of calendar as I get to tear a page out everyday. Its made of very very thin paper. Kinda like tissue.

February 14 is also a lonely day for introverts like me that do not have a other half yet. So i hopped on the train and went to Kuala Lumpur to celebrate this lonely day with some good friends. I waved at a friend who was in a straw skirt by his office window when i was passing by his office. But i guess he thought that i was just pulling a fast one on him when i said WAVE. *LOL*

We had a good meal at this place called Serai. Just four good friends sharing a giggle and some laughs. We had a very very sweet pavlova to tie up the meal. Being the glutton that i am, i forgot to take the picture of the pavlova to share with you guys. It was a very pretty pavlova.

Serai means lemongrass. Malaysians used a lot of lemongrass in their cooking.

We had some Kilkennys later in the night. Its been quite a while since i had a pint. I think i was very thirsty :p

Actually i was in Kuala Lumpur for some work too. Mr P was so happy to see me, he was running in circles. I think i kinda miss my Curly when i was in Kuala Lumpur as i kept calling Dom when i talking to Piper. No wonder he was looking at me funnily when i called him Dom.

We went for some walkies in the morning and some more walkies in the evening.

Mr P smelling some weeds flowers along the way. We met some kids on bicycles in the evenings and one of them even greeted Piper. *LOL* He was just cycling by and said.. Hi Mr Poofball. I guess Piper is getting more well known as the poofball in this neighbourhood.

We met a worm... and many many worms along the way. There were quite a lot of worms early in the morning. I bet these worms were going for a morning stroll. A lot of them got squashed by the early morning joggers. One even cling on to Piper's feet for dear life and came home with us. If we collected all the worms from the morning walks, we could go fishing with them.

Mr P got really tired from all the walks and promptly fell asleep after all the walks. Even though he has a pretty nice comfy bed, he prefers to lie on the stack of newspapers on the floor. That to him is the best spot to sleep.

Part of his bed is still not dry yet... but he insists on sleeping in it.

Mr P in his comfy bed. He feels very safe in his bed but he is still very afraid of thunder. Maybe i should buy him a thundershirt. Can anyone tell us if the thundershirt really works? Cos Mr Poofball is really really scared when there's lightning and thunder.

Ahhh... i guess you all must have missed Curly. Here he is now. He is getting a bit curly wurly and all his furry self is outta place. He will haveta be groomed this week to greet a special someone who will be coming back this Saturday. We really can't wait until Saturday comes.

GROOM??? i don't need a groom. I look perfectly handsome. 
Don't you think so? 
I am just hungry. Will ya feed me please.
Pretty please...

Please don't mind the mess behind Dom. I am not very good at housekeeping. ^.^

We will try to post once a week... or once a forthnight. *LOL* We will be hitting the road again this Saturday. Till we meet again. Be safe... be happy and always forgive.. and forget.

Happy belated Birthday to your dad. :)

I know what you mean about blinking. Sometimes I feel like I don't have time to breathe!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Sounds like you spent the 14th the best way--with friends, rather than a forced romantic something.

Good to hear from you.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Introverts unite! To be honest, I don't ever remember having been anyone's Valentine. Fortunately, I think it's a load of clever marketing crap, so I dont get suicidal over it ;) Love is for everyday, not just Feb 14!

Does your dad really look like that? LOL. Jayden's cake looks so professional! I guess there's a baker in your family.

I LOVE that calendar! I'll have to go to Chinatown to find one like that for myself. These days, my calendar is on the computer or the iPhone. They definitely lack soul.

One post a week is pretty good, given all that's going on at the moment. Remember not to be bullied by your blog ... says the one who is completely browbeaten :)

Happy birthday to your dad and Jayden. Love the cakes.
I wondered what that one picture was, I'm glad you said it was a worm. I was worried for a second :)

Happy birthday to your dad and Jayden! Those cakes look super yummy. Your Valentine's Day sounds nice - sometimes it is more fun to spend that night with friends anyway.

I love lemongrass, but it is tough to find around here. I usually have to go to specialty markets and it is expensive.

Dommy looks super cute as always!

I hope your dad and nephew both had wonderful birthdays!

We have a Thundershirt here and it definitely helps. It's not a cure all, but it takes the edge off. Lilac used to pace and pant endlessly when we had storms, but after the shirt, she'd lay in her bed and pant for a little while before falling asleep.

be careful with dogs and ipads!! yuki likes to randomly just paw at my ipad screen in the middle of writing emails or commenting...happy belated birthday to your dad and jayden!! :)

Natasha Fernz said...


thanks for stopping by our blog...

just wanted to say that Thundershirts do work. The extent of which it works is different for each dog, but I can't imagine my life without it now. It has helped my Lucky significantly with many things: fear of storms, fear aggression, concentration etc.

do let me know if you would like to get one, as I brought in additional shirts to malaysia as thundershirt does not ship to malaysia...


Nessa said...
