Rainy days are perfect for lazing on bed, don't you think so? I think I need a blanket, one for MYSELF, not shared with Korkor or Jiejie. Jiejie: Does it matter? You'll end up snatching our blankets what!
I am due for a hot date review with Dr Ling this coming weekend.
I was happily planning the trip when the phone rang.
Dr Ling is sick! Oh my dog! Oh my dog! Oh my dog! Oh my dog!
The mee see clinic assistant who called Jiejie said that Dr Ling's finger (right hand) was bitten by a stray cat and the wound is now inflammed! She'll be going for an operation and will be away for at least 3 weeks! Gosh! The wound must be very bad :(
I was angry at that stray kitty at first because it spoilt my plan Dr Ling is a very gentle and friendly person and I cannot understand why the kitty would do such a thing to Dr Ling. Jiejie chided me and told me the kitty might have acted defensive because of painful past experience with humans and that I shouldn't jump to conclusion.
I hope Dr Ling will take good care and rest well. I hope the kitty will be ok too.
Now I need to think of another excuse reason to go out. Korkor, I think my nails are very very very very long already you know? :P
I don't know if it is the Elimination Diet or other stuffs that I have been doing but the skin does seems to be healthier *touch wood*
And to share with you, one of the other stuffs which I have been doing is the weekly Mud Spa sessions :)
Jiejie heard from Dr Ling some pet owners commented that sending their pet for mud spa seems to help improve the skin condition. Well, Jiejie has developed this phobia of sending me to the groomers after our last unpleasant experience (I developed more rashes after the session) hence the idea of DIY Mud Spa for me came to her mind! Korkor: *this crazy woman*
As she wasn't sure of what kind of "mud" would be suitable for my delicate skin, she sought the help from Jess Jiejie, the lovely owner of Yours Essentially. Jess Jiejie suggested White Kaolin Clay as it is the mildest clay available which is suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Jiejie did a patch test on me and monitored for a week just to ensure that I am not allergic to the clay. Hmmm.... is that consider animal testing? :P Jiejie: No. Period.
The end result is a smoother and softer coat which I don't really like! Well, would you like it if your humans kept stroking you none-stop JUST to feel the smoothness and softness of your coat BUT not because they feel like sayang-ing (meaning: show affection for) you? Okok, I shouldn't be complaining, afterall, I am getting extra caressing :P
The DIY Mud Spa process is very simple. Jiejie will first shampoo me as per normal and after rinsing, she will apply the diluted clay all over me, paying more attention to the spots which I often had rashes. She will then leave the clay on me for a few minutes while she do some other stuffs like cleansing my pillow cases or toys. After a few minutes, she'll massage my coat again *ooooh I love this part* before proceeding to the final rinse.
I've been Spa-ed weekly for more than a month already and my skin condition improved tremendously. As such, she has placed an order for more clay :P Korkor: 12oz?!!!! *this crazy woman*
Disaster! Jiejie came home early yesterday and caught me "eating snake" (meaning: sleeping on the job)! I was not at the door performing my usual guard duty. Jiejie, PLEASE believe me, I AM not sleeping! I am PRETENDING to be asleep! See! My ear is on standby! My eyes eye is half open! Korkor: Oh reeeaaaaaally? "Mai Kay Kay" (meaning: Don't try to deny) :P
As a punishment, Jiejie say she will be taking the day off tomorrow to monitor me closely!
Dictionary: punishment n.
The act or an instance of punishing.
The condition of being punished.
A penalty imposed for wrongdoing: “The severity of the punishment must . . . be in keeping with the kind of obligation which has been violated” (Simone Weil).
Rough handling; mistreatment: These old skis have taken a lot of punishment over the years.
This is Uncle Sky. His mummy Aunt P is the aunt of my Jiejie & Korkor so by right he should be my cousin but due to unknown reasons, my Korkor said Sky is my uncle hence that makes him my uncle.
I like Uncle Sky, although I know he gets irritated whenever I bugs him. It's okay Uncle Sky. Eventhough you snapped at me twice when you came to visit my mummy, I still like you.
Over the weekend, we overheard mummy talking about Uncle Sky.
Apparently, Jiejie's cousin - Cousin E (Aunt P's son) has just got married and will be moving to a new unit soon. Aunt P is supposed to move into the new unit with them. Cousin E's wife has make it a point that she does not want to have dogs in HER house and that makes Aunt P very upset.
I am puzzled because Cousin E's wife used to visit Aunt P every weekend and I didn't hear her complaining about Uncle Sky then. Jiejie said I cannot say bad things about Cousin E's wife changing her face attitude after the matrimony paper is signed eventhough it seems to be very obvious.
I hope mummy heard the wrong thing because IF THAT IS THE TRUTH, then this is very upsetting :( Uncle Sky has been with my Aunt P for almost 10 years and I am very sure Aunt P will be very very very very upset if she's not allowed to bring Uncle Sky to the new place.
Jiejie say I cannot say bad things about her Cousin E's wife eventhough I think that is terrible of Cousin E's wife to not allow Uncle Sky into the new place IF THAT IS THE TRUTH.
Jiejie say I must keep my cool eventhough I think that Cousin E's wife is cruel and hardhearted to even harbour that thought IF THAT IS THE TRUTH.
Jiejie say I must not lose my temper eventhough I think that Cousin E's wife is being unreasonableand unaccommodating IF THAT IS THE TRUTH.
Jiejie say I cannot comment much about Cousin E's wife because in Chinese customs, it is consider rude and not being respectful to comment about your seniors. PS: Does that mean Jiejie and Korkor can comment since both of you are older than Cousin E and his wife? Jiejie: Well.... Korkor: Don't ask so much.
Mummy said Aunt P told her that she might be getting her own place instead of staying with someone who doesn't like doggies. I sincerely hope that this is all a misunderstanding....
I hope this will never happen to me.... and Uncle Sky too :P
Jiejie bought me a new pressie but I am not happy about it :( It's a tablet splitter/crusher that can split tablets in half or crush them into powder. WHAT?! TABLET SPLITTER/CRUSHER???? Does that means more medications!? :S Jiejie: Or you want me to use this to split/crush your treats? *sniggers*
Jiejie heard about this online website iHerb that sells nutritional supplements at very affordable prices when reading Joey's blog.
She found this toy while online shopping for some nutritional supplements. She placed the order immediately as they are currently having this USD3.99 international shipping promotion (USD1.99 for US customers). The average shipping duration to Singapore is about a week. Just for estimation, Jiejie placed the order last Thursday and she got this today.
If you are ordering for the first time, you can get USD5 off your order if you use a referral code at checkout.
Jiejie's referral code is WAN649 and if you use this code, you'll get USD5 off while she gets some credits based on your purchase total. In case you are curious about the reward programme, you can read about it here. Oh, and and when Jieije first ordered, she tried using the code (thanks to Joey's HC :) together with the shipping promotion and yep, it worked well :)
Jiejie is in cloud nine now because now she no longer needs to cut my medication using scissors and gets ridiculed by Korkor like last time. Korkor: I NEVER!!!!
I am so so so happy! Dad and Mum are not working for the whole of this week! That means I can sleep and sleep and sleep and sleep and sleep! Hurray!!!!
On side note, Korkor has been coming home quite late for the past one night resulting in me not being able to take my supper at the designated time. I prefer Korkor's style of preparing my supper. Jiejie is just too lazy because she'll just dump everything at one go.
SO.... Korkor, you should know what to do next, right? Hehe!
I am not sure if this is common in your country BUT over here in Singapore, parents/grandparents like to buy these Squeaker Shoes that squeaks with every step their babies takes for their babies.
The truth is, my Jiejie is very very very irritated by that squeaky noise made by these shoes. Every night she'll complained to my mummy about the squeaky noise that came from our neighbour's kid who has just started to learn how to walk. Mummy: Your Jiejie and Korkor worn those too, when they were learning how to walk :) Jiejie: :I
And guess what she bought me yesterday?
A Squeaky Slipper. But why only one side? -_-"
My Jiejie will literally beams whenever she sees me playing the toys, biting on them.
Funny thing is that she is not irritated by the squeaky sound I made whenever I bite on the toy but she IS irritated by the squeaky noise my neighbour's baby made. Double standard, no? Jiejie: No. Period.
Okok. I know my Jiejie loves me alot :) Jiejie: GLAD that you are aware of that :P
Exactly four years ago today, I was brought back to this place call home by Korkor. This is the picture Jiejie took then (the pair of hairy legs belongs to Eric Korkor and the one carrying me is Carol Jiejie - both good friends of my Korkor).
Jiejie said I was very timid and quiet and whiny :P Well, the truth is, my Jiejie looks very fierce if she don't smile :P
I hope they still remember today is the day. Jiejie: Happy 4th Anniversary! Korkor: Today meh? Cannot remember le....
Hmmph! Men! Bleahhhh....
And oh, I truly enjoyed myself yesterday! Except for the 2 hours guard duty that I had to perform while the humans sneaked out for dinner and came back with plastic bag labelled Sheng Shiong.... They went shopping without me!!!! Roaaarrrrrrr :P
