It has been more than 2 weeks  already  and should I gave up hope?
My Bibi whom I have rescued when she was still a baby and being a mother to her since have gone wondering just after the CNY.....

Her beautiful thoughtful face
The smartest thing about her?  Without our training her, she does her business inside the toilet! She used to pulled the toilet paper to cover her poo and you can imagine how fast the roll finishes. So in the end, we have to remove the toilet paper roll from the holder!  

One of her favourite place ....
otherwise she will be resting right in front of the TV at night while we were watching TV and we do get annoyed with her blocking the show just when it is most exciting!  Once she was watching the badminton games and her head was moving from side to side...it was so lovable watching her. 

getting annoyed at the intrusion of Brownie into the house.     
By the way, Brownie (a stray male cat) has been  missing in action some months back too. 

got her hiding in the store room  without our notice once
Unless she was sleeping with me inside the room,  she would became an alarm clock in the morning outside the room, meowing till someone wake up. 

Toto has lost his best friend....both of them love playing and chasing each other upstairs and downstairs. Secretly, I think Toto thinks she is a dog and always try to hump her unsucessfully..LOL.

Pray that all's well with her and keep happy memories..... time to let go.

16/2/2018 & 17/2/2018
My little Princess wishing everyone a Happy New Year 

Everyday  a fresh blessing from the Lord.. 

This year, Esther and myself took the MRT down to Petaling Street for shopping and bought these beautiful peonies and some peach flower (artificial ones of course!) to lend more a festive mood.  But definitely the festive mood became more happier when gifts started appearing....hahaha.  Wait ...you must be thinking "what has Haagen Dazs to do with Chinese New Year?"...well it was an ice cream birthday cake for me from my big princess here....thanks girls, even though to confess I did not enjoy it much as I was not feeling well that day, so may I repeat my order for Mother's Day in advance?   

It's the DOG's year ... must have photo first with them.
In fact,  we had an eventful New Year's eve indeed.  Blackie (female and 3-legged as well) suddenly went berserk and attacked Juju (senior male dog) and got him on his throat!!!! And for a moment we thought that's the end of Juju...he was lying so still.  But thank God, he's alive, he was so badly bitten only that we had to board him at the vet for observation.  And both of them were good partners together harassing Toto whenever he ventures outside the house, ...can't imagine what was wrong with Blackie.   And the same scenario happened again on the 9th day! 

Naughty Blackie.

the big princesses....
1st Day - this year the celebrations were at my second brother's house.

Happy New Year and Good Health to Aunty.

It's the time of the year again.....
Thank You everyone who had ordered.
Baking had ended and as I had promised I had baked the best pineapple tarts as I can, with tenderloving care. Hope all enjoy them.

My first and foremost wish for this Chinese New Year.... since its the Doggies turn, I pray that all the doggies in the world will get all the tenderloving care and better treatment from the humans and  that dog abuse will be less and yes, stop the dog meat eating festivals worldwide please.
