  • Since Marley & Me…..

    There have been just too many books about dogs now… and seriously? Do we really need any more stories about man’s best friend?

    Of course I’m not digging it that Jennifer Aniston is starring in this movie either…

    But I did enjoy the book Marley & Me, made me cry at the end. NOBODY likes to read about a dog dying!

    Here’s to all the dog lovers out there!

  • Loyalty

    This story about Cash a German Sheperd who guarded his owner’s dead body for 6 weeks made me wonder what goes through a dog’s mind.

    Cash survived on mice and rabbits – and kept the coyotes away from his master’s body.

    The extent of a dog’s loyalty!

    My two dogs are loyal to food. They like their food.

  • FUWA! So Rock & Roll!

    I was very excited about the Beijing Olympics last week, 8 August 2008, starting at 8pm – especially when such cute friendly cuddlies are involved.

    And they look so POWERFUL!

    You’d have to agree with me if I say the FUWA is HOT! in comparison to some of the other mascots. Well, this is just my opinion…

    The Official Mascots of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games

    The Whatizit, 1996 Atlanta – what is it?! Indeed!

    Neve and Gliz, 2006 Torino – One boy one girl? Huh?

    Magique – 1992 Albertville… Hmmmm…..

    Schuss – 1968 Grenoble… You gotta be kidding me!

    Some other yummy huggables that make me go AWWWWW…..

    Hodori – 1998 Seoul… Which kinda reminds me of Frosted Cornflakes…

    Cobi – 1992 Barcelona… I think he looks like a lawyer!

    And are you ready for more cuteness? Behold, Misha the bear, 1980 Moscow.

    I am a sucker for all things cute…

  • Arghhhhh!!! SEVEN POUNDS OF LARD!

    After 30, women lose about 5 pounds of muscle a decade, causing them to burn about 70 fewer calories a day — enough to add 7 pounds of fat a year.

    I can so confirm this! It’s a fact! And you don’t get to choose where the fat is deposited. Since I turned 30 – it’s all been heading for the ass.

    All SEVEN POUNDS OF FAT! IN TWO MONTHS!

    It feels like it’s been waiting for the past 30 years – and has decided to hit me – with all SEVEN POUNDS of it! IN ONE GO!

  • 3 simple steps on how to deal with fuel price increase

    STEP ONE – I WILL HAVE TO GIVE UP STARBUCKS.

    Sigh…

    It’s not something that I really want to go into detail about, but since there is just SO MUCH TALK ABOUT OUR 40% INCREASE IN FUEL PRICE! I had to say something about it.

    STEP 2 – READ THE NEWSPAPERS DAILY. THERE ARE SOME GOOD AND SOUND ADVICE ON FIGHTING THIS PRICE INCREASE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE WORDS OF WISDOM AND COMFORT.

    “Make fewer trips to the mall, have fewer family outings on weekends and fewer holidays” – Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad, The Sun front page, 6 June 2008.

    “Look at all avenues to reduce living costs, from using less electricity, having more meals at home and preparing a thorough financial plan” – Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) president S.M. Mohamed Idris, The Star, 8 June 2008.

    “Change your lifestyle to help reduce the impact of the rise in prices, exercise patience and prudence, Insya Allah this will enable us to tide over this problem and emerge more matured and resilient” – The Yang di-Pertuan Agong, The News Straits Times, 7 June 2008, Page 4.

    “Companies should encourage employees to car pool. We could perhaps allow only cars with number plates ending in odd numbers on certain days to be on the road” – Datuk Maznah Mazlan, Deputy Natural Resources and Environment Minister, The News Straits Times, 6 June 2008, Page 12.

    STEP 3 – COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS AND LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE.

    You don’t have to sell cow poop cakes for cooking fuel like in India when their government hiked their gas prices – The News Straits Times, 9 June 2008, Page 6.

    The government is seeking to improve the public transportation system, and by 2010 the Kelana Jaya LRT line will have 22 new cars to ease congestion, and by 2011 there will be a line extension for Kelana Jaya and Ampang to Putra Heights. – The News Straits Times, 8 June 2008, Page 4.

    Our government is going to lead by example by not hosting lavish functions, cutting down costs on domestic and international travel, and reviewing excessive use of electricity in government complexes, Parliament and other large buildings. – The News Straits Times, 6 June 2008, Page 13.

    Last but not least – all you need is L.O.V.E.
