Meeting Mr Helios

We finally got to meet Mr Helios today! Like Waverly, Helios hails from a special place in Australia. Missy feels a particular affinity with this little guy because she feels somewhat responsible for his being here, having bridged Helios' Mom and his breeder. For that, she thinks Helios is a bit like a Godson!

Oooh are we a foursome now?

N-ah. I think Helios will be quite happy to go home to his loving MM, M and big brother, Herbie.

At Dino's

So Aunt HL had us over yesterday for a much belated housewarming. While the folks shared lots of fun and laughter in the kitchen decorating their Chocolate Strawberry Cake (which we had no share of because it was chocccolate), we were kept out of bounds to the kitchen (read: separated from Missy), a rather peculiar house rule set by a certain crank that was our Uncle LP. That made my little sister, Waverly, cry.

"But...but...but...we always get to join Missy in the kitchen!"

Here’s a step-by-step illustration on How To (Over) Decorate A Cake:

1. Half the cake to make two layers. 2. Whip up some fresh cream. 3. Spread whipped cream on bottom cake layer. 4. Line with strawberries followed by more whipped cream. 5. Top with remaining half of cake and frost all over with whipped cream. 6. Pipe little flowers all over cake. 7. Top with more strawberries and voila! 8. The cake turned out pretty decent, hey?

Just when Missy thought enough of food pictures…oooh but doesn’t this remind you of myyy anniversary cake?

Here are the three wacky cooks:

We love your smile, Aunt HL!

So we didn’t get any cake but Aunt HL did cook us a yummy dinner of macaroni, chicken and veggies......except it was two hours late!

"Gimme it! Gimme it! Gimme it!!!"

And here’s what the folks had. Uncle LP cooked it!

Looks yummy! (Missy: It was yummy!)

Later on at night, Aunt HL helped us break another one of Uncle LP’s nutty house rules when she let us into the TV room so we could snuggle with Missy as we were accustomed to. We really thought we were doing Uncle LP a favour because we didn’t think he would like us to make scratches or break his glass door panels like Fee did!

Thanks for having us over, Aunt HL! We still love ya’, Uncle LP!

Bone, Soup & Madeleines

We started the day with our teeth-cleansing routine gnawing on oxtails....

Must . keep . teeth . clean .

We didn't get to go on any outing this weekend because Missy was much too tired from a whole week of work. She's got to adjust her internal clock to get used to work hours after a restful three weeks. She did find some energy though to bake us one of our favourite snacks, Madeleines!

Since pandan seems to be all the rage now, Missy decided to make some pandan-flavoured Madeleines too! They're the ones in green, see?

Can you tell how soft and fluffy they are?

Milk and Madeleines for snacks!

Later on in the evening, we had Grandmama's wholesome Corn and Carrot Soup for dinner, with minced meat and rice.

We are satisfied little poo-poos! :)

Tagged: Seven Pawsome Things About Us

We've been tagged by our new friend, Ume, to list 7 pawsome things about ourselves. Here goes!


1. I swim as gracefully as a swan! Watch me here.

2. I'm proud as a peacock and stubborn as a mule, but hey, I'd like to think I've got character!

3. I've got eyelashes as beautiful as the giraffe's (or so Missy thinks)!

4. I've got really high IQ and EQ and would probably qualify for MENSA if I were folk.

5. This amazes the folks but I love sour stuff like strawberries and kiwis but I hate bananas!

6. I double up as a nurse to the folks when they are ill and I'm a real ace at it!

7. I'm a wonderful sister to my mei mei (Chinese for little sister), Waverly!


1. I love to perch atop the sofa and stack of cushions like a cat!

2. I can twirl around like a ballerina and hop on my hinds like a baby 'roo!

3. I flew solo on a 7-hr flight when I was only a teeny weeny 'lil pup of 4 months!

4. I've got a tattoo on my ear! I'm a hot chick!

5. Look how beautifully I've turned out from the golliwog puppy I used to be!



6. I'm glued to Missy!

7. I have a way with my jie jie (big sister in Chinese) despite her iciness and temper!

This is fun! We're tagging Dino, Zuiko, Leica, Kennie, Kyra, Luna and Fable!

Afternote: We had missed out Brandee and are glad Aunt HL included her. We hope it's not too late to tag Zaccheus now. We think this would be a good time to reminisce all the wonderful pawsomes that was Zaccheus.

A Day Out with Old Pals

We spent a wonderful morning with Aunt HL, Dino, Zuiko, Leica and Kennie. Boy was Jie Jie all too happy to see Leica, her greatest friend of all time!

This is Leica. Jie Jie was after her the whole morning I think she plain forgot about me! But I guess Leica and Jie Jie go way back, way before I was born!

A close-up of Leica the Chihuahua. Ain't she pretty?

Mind ya', she'd modeled for Guess one time!

This is Kennie, a Miniature Pinscher, Leica's 'lil sister. She's cutsie!

Here's a picture of Jie Jie set against the beautiful backdrop.

And here's me skipping happily!

Missy attempts a 'poetic' shot.

Oooh and this time, we saw a monkey for real!

We love this new place Aunt HL brought us! We shall be back!
