Hello Kitty Baby Wipes!

Posted in Blog on / Leave a comment

Recently, The Girlfriend and I visited Batam. As part of our usual hobby, we decided to check out the supermarket. This was what we found: It’s Hello Kitty Baby Wipes! Oh gosh! Hello Kitty look sooo cute on this packaging! It’s even holding a small little teddy bear! Anyway, here’s a little interesting fact about Hello Kitty: Did you know …

Long Time No Post!

Posted in Blog on / Leave a comment

I’m still alive! Oh gosh! I didn’t realise the last time I posted was about three months ago. Many things have happened since March. As usual, I got buried in work – essays, essays, and more essays! – and worse of all, I got hospitalised for a week. Ouch. Nothing too serious. I got infected by some mysterious, undiagnosable virus …

Got it!

Cat and Newspaper

Posted in Cat on / Leave a comment

I realised I haven’t been posting anything about the cat for some time. Well, some time back, I found a new way to play with the cat. It involves putting a stick underneath some newspaper and moving the stick around. This will get the cat very curious and excited! Where is it? Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! Got it! Here’s a video!

How to Fold a Cat

Posted in Cat on / Leave a comment

I’m pretty sure Google is trolling me. Yesterday, I wrote about how people had been searching for “sleepy crab.” (Click here to read about it – there’s a cute drawing too!) Well, yesterday, people have been searching for “how to fold a cat.” And guess what? Google directs them to this blog! Why does Google direct them here? I’m puzzled. …

A Prologue to The Relationship

Posted in Love Stories on / 7 Comments

A friend of mine suggested that I should record all the fun and romantic stories that I have with The Girlfriend. The Girlfriend thinks that it’s a fantastic idea too! There are several good reasons for it: (1) There’s something very different about recording events as they happen. When events are recorded in the present moment, the present thoughts, feelings, …

Cats!

Last night, my family went up to Auntie Winnie’s house (she’s the lady who feeds the stray cats) to pass her some things, and to visit my cat’s kitty friends. These cats are stray cats whom Auntie Winnnie has rescued around the neighbourhood. Many of them were victims of animal abuse. But it’s lovely to see how they’ve all been …

Cat Sleepover

Posted in Cat on / Leave a comment

For many nights, it seemed that the cat really really wants to stay over in our house. Now that it’s the Chinese New Year holidays, I figured I could risk losing sleep for one night in an attempt to train the cat to stay indoors. Last night, I made sure my room was cat-friendly by removing anything fragile, and clearing …

Cai Shen Mao (財神貓)

I was supposed to be doing work today, but I just had no mood to do anything work-related. Initially, I was complaining to my mum about the lack of Chinese New Year decorations in the home. There’s only one festive decoration in the house – and that’s pasted on my room door. Other than that, there’s absolutely nothing. It was …

Feline Friends

Just now, my sister-in-law asked me to follow her down to the void deck to meet the auntie who feeds the stray cats. She’s called Auntie Winnie, and she feeds the cats at around 7.30pm everyday. We were a bit early. But it’s quite amazing. By 7.15pm, all the stray cats were assembled at the void deck waiting for her …

Cat Woes

Posted in Cat on / Leave a comment

Many weeks has passed since I’ve adopted the cat as my part-time pet. The honeymoon period has subsided, and the problems often associated with having a cat has arisen. The cat has been scratching shoes, sofas, and even my brother’s brand new piano chair (OUCH! Well, thank goodness it didn’t scratch the piano). Unfortunately, the one that comes regularly, doesn’t …

Two Cats!

Posted in Cat on / Leave a comment

I’ve always had the suspicion that there’s more than one cat visiting our home. The cats that have been coming over are very similar – cute and orange-brown in colour. We’ve heard stories that there are two similar looking cats. My suspicion was finally confirmed one day when another similar looking cat came to visit. It had a different collar. …

Fat Cat and Memory Loss

Posted in Cat on / Leave a comment

They say that cats are good at relieving people’s stress. Maybe when you play with the cat, you simply forget all your worries. Well, in my case, my cat’s very good at erasing my short-term memory. I have learnt a very important lesson. NEVER – and I mean NEVER – ever play with your cat when you’re packing your bags …

More Cat Training

Posted in Cat on / Leave a comment

The cat came by to visit early this morning. It looks like it’s in a really good mood. After feeding it a little breakfast (as I was eating mine), I soon came to a plausible explanation for the cat’s recent misbehaviour, i.e. the scratching, the chewing of shoes, etc. I noticed that the cat hasn’t been using the cat tent …
