I have news about my furbaby, Lola. I was going to order a doggy raincoat for her and so I called home to find out her exact measurements. The numbers my father gave me over the phone would more aptly describe a little ‘takiya”( a fat cylindrical indian side-pillow) rather than a dog standing at a whopping height of 19 inches from the ground.
Lola is a Fatty Mcfatty now. And all the exercise and diet food in the world will not help because she likes to beg and my parents always oblige. She also likes to be carried around the house like a baby, so this is alarming news.
But also cute. ‘Cuz now when she does her two-legged happy dance, all that junk in her trunk makes it even more adorable.
The lunar new year is the best time in Singapore. It’s busy but beautiful. There are pretty lights everywhere. Things slow down while everyone prepares for the festivities and the weather is so amazing. Every time the lunar new year rolls around I discover some new food that I fall in love with. This year it’s been the cream filled “love letters”.
We are taking a vacation using the long weekend and going to Australia tonight. I can’t wait to met our friends and family there. My brother’s new baby is waiting 🙂
To all you beautiful people, may this new year bring you lots of luck and prosperity. Gong xi fa cai!
