The good ol’ days – NYC

Just a couple of months more will mark the 4th year I am back in Singapore Yap, in case you’re new here (Hi welcome!) or can’t be bothered to scroll back to past entries (guilty~ like me..hehe), I am a New Yorker. True blue one somemore. #thesinglishonlyhappenedafterIcameback #Iusedtospeakinanaccenthor I was born in New York state and stayed in Manhattan till I was almost 3, before I was whisked off to this little island. To kinda mark the end of our adventure there, Mummy organised a photoshoot around our few favourite spots in the Big Apple. And since Mummy spent too much money on it, she decided that it’s time to go through them and showcase it on the blog again. #cheapoislikethatone #mustkeepreusinguntilpeoplearesickofseeingit #sitinharddiskdonothingalsowastemoneyma Here goes… No one place can replace this place in my heart. Ever.  My heaven on earth is, of course, Central Park. It was the one place Mummy and I spent one too many afternoons at, all year round. Erm, should I be seeing this? #oiyoursonishere #noPDAleh #buaypaiseh My happy place! This …

The many faces of Pecan Woods

Through our recent photoshoot with Uncle Nicholas from Furry Photos, Mummy came to realise that Pecan ah ma can be pretty expressive.  #itisamazinghowmanydifferentfacesshehas #nowondermummyalwayssaysheiscuterthanme For starters, this is her ‘Let me pose like a model’ face. #actsodemure #actyounglor This is her ‘=P’ face. #tongueouttuesdayyo This is her happy face. #alsoknownasherdefaultface This is her ‘you owe me a treat’ face. #ithinkhergrumpyfacecanfightwithmine #hownottogivethisfaceatreat #nowonderourbelliesaregrowing This is her ‘omg omg omg life is so good’ face. Also known as her silly face. #omgshelooksogong This is her ‘I am a food critic’ face. Tasting her food like a true connoisseur. #pretendonly #mustseeifahmaapproveanotma #ofcosshelikela #thenextshotshegombledupeverything This is her ‘shiok ah’ face. This is probably the expression we will see the most at the beach. After all, she is THAT crazy about being at the beach. #asianeyes This is her “my life sucks” face. To be honest, this is pretty much Sam’s face during a shower too. #whoeverinventedshowersistheworstpersononearth This is her ‘Let-me-think-about-life’ face. Pecan ah ma needs to contemplate about life ma.  #thisiswhatoldpeopledo #nolasheisjustsotiredthatsheisspacingout Last but not least, THIS. #nowordscandescribethisfaceofhers With …

A new shop in town – Woofer & Purrlensky

One of our only favourite friends, Latte (Yap, the Vanillapup) is turning four soon.  And we were cracking our brains thinking of what to get for her.  #actuallyonlymummyisthinking #wedon’treallycare Because, like us, Latte has pretty much everything she needs.  So, it is a real challenge getting her a present. When Mummy found out about the new store, Woofer & Purrlensky, she decided to check it out and hopefully, find something for the birthday gal. #spotahma’sbackside We absolutely adore the industrial vibe of the store. #mummyisasuckerforanythingindustrialla The floor-to-ceiling windows make the space look really big, and the bright natural light streaming in make the products look lush and vibrant – perfect for a photo-shoot. #infacteverysingleshotinthispostistakenusingjustaniphone #lazymummydidnotwantotusehercamera Most importantly, the gorgeous pet accessories got Mummy super excited. #luckydaddydidnotcomealongelsehewillbesweatingalltheway As for me, I really liked how this reminds me of the few boutique pet stores we used to frequent when I was still a New Yorker. #sorrypecanyouwon’tunderstandone #imissnyc We loved the place so much that we decided to camouflage as furniture so that we can stay here longer! …

Sam’s pick: Zippy Paws

I’m not really a huge fan of stuffed plush toys. Well, there was a time when destroying them was my life mission. Thankfully for Mummy, I had since outgrown that phase.  #removingstuffingnokickla #tooeasyuntilicannotbebotheredtodoit On the other hand, Pecan ah ma isn’t interested in them either. #sheonlyhaseyesforherlatexsheep Hence, Mummy really doesn’t bother buying us any. However, she recently found a type of plushie that got me going cray cray over it! It’s the ZippyPaws Burrows! It’s no secret that I am an hyper JRT and Mummy is on an active mission to find toys to keep me stimulated. #thatiswhysheisashopaholic The ZippyPaws Burrow toys are the perfect mental stimulation toys! Each set comes with a ‘den’…. And three squeaky critters (in this case, our favourite – mice)! There are so many cute designs that Mummy couldn’t resist but buy way too many of them.  (Source) My current collection count = 5! We started with 4. Then Mummy gave 2 away to our friends. #boohoohoo #ohwellgoodthingsmustshareiguess Seeing how upset we were, she replenished stock during the recent B2K …

Sam’s Pick: Online Shopping with Kohepets

The kind people from Kohepets dropped us an email asking if we were keen to do a sponsored review about our experience shopping with them. Instantly, our shopaholic sides came right through. #weinherititfromMummyone YES,we said! Pecan ah ma and myself were extremely excited and both of us took some time, sat down and to come up with our shopping list. #tookoursolongcan #thinkingistiring We showed Mummy our shopping list and she burst into laughter. #gotsofunnymeh #seriousbusinessleh Oh well. After laughing for way too long, Mummy gave us the green light to go ahead and even helped us set up her lappie. #meandomummy With our shopping list in mind, we embarked on our very own online shopping spree. Hehe, I was kinda pleased that I had control of the mouse. #ihavethefinalbarknow #pecanhastolistentome #youdonotneedopposablethumbstoshop Concentration time… We love how accessible Kohepets’ website is.  The products are very well categorised and we were able to nagivate through the site easily. Since we’re raw-fed dogs, we were very specific in the types of treats we wanted.  Everything was listed clearly …

Pecan’s birthday present – Furry Photos shoot

You may have been wondering why Pecan didn’t have a birthday present reveal like we usually do. It’s not because our parents got all stingy and decide to scrimp on it. #Ithinkdaddysecretlywantedtodothat #mummywon’tallowonelor It’s because it took a while for the end product to be out. #goodthingsareworththewait Yap, you may have guessed it right.. (or rather, Mummy may have already told you la) Mummy arranged a photoshoot for Pecan – One where the focus will be on the little granny. #pecanhardlygetstobeinthelimelightonherown #firsttimeleh Thank you Uncle Nicholas from Furry Photos for delivering these awesome photos of the birthday girl. Here goes… The flying ah ma! PS: Thank you Ohpopdog for the gorgeous bandanas! She is pretty agile for 13 huh. #energizerahma Since it was her photoshoot, we definitely had to include her favourite place on earth – Tanjong Beach. It’s pretty amazing how she can fly anywhere! Of course Pecan’s favourite water toy, Mr Spikey, tagged along for the shoot! The perfect shake-off! “Oi, it’s my photoshoot! Don’t disturb me. I’ll play with you later.” #thegrumpyahmaatwork Well, it’s …

Pecan, I just wanna say…

Granted, I wasn’t exactly pleased the day Mummy brought you home. #didnothelpthatyoupinnedmedownthemomentoureyesmet In fact, I probably sulked for the next couple of months.  After all, you did continue whack me countless times. #Iamnotawuss #Iamjustbeingnicetoanoldlady BUT I am glad we made peace. I guess it became quite clear to me that… 2 dogs = x2 treats 2 dogs = x2 birthday cakes 2 dogs = x2 Daddy’s shiok massages 2 dogs = x2 outings So, yap, welcome to the family! #samisverythepracticalone Thanks for being my partner in crime…. in ganging up with me on other dogs (HEHEHEHE!), in extorting our parents for more food,  in barking symphonies, especially at the pool, Thanks to you, I can manage being home alone a bit better. Thanks to you, Mr Vacuum cleaner doesn’t seem that scary after all (since Pecan will attack it for me). Thanks to you, my tummy (and yours too) is getting bigger by the day. So, on this special day, I just wanna say… Happy 13th Birthday, Pecan! #akatheancientone Lotsa Love,  Your Little brother, Sam

The Secret Life of Pets Breakfast event at USS!

In conjunction with the release of the movie, “The Secret Life of Pets” in Singapore, Resort World Sentosa recently hosted a breakfast event in Universal Studios Singapore for pets owners and their pets. And Mummy managed to score us some tickets! WHEEEEEEEEEE The only catch was that only one dog was allowed per family.  Well, don’t feel too bad for Pecan ah ma as she was treated to a fruitful day at Wooga! As much as we were super excited about this event, it really was wayyy too early for me. Hence, my cannot-wake-up-in-the-morning face. But on a good note, the early hours meant that there were no photobombing tourists. #guessitwasworthitafterall Queuing up for tickets. #stupidmummydidnottellmeIdidn’thavetoqueue #makemelooklikeanidiot #mummyisameando Wondering why everybody was. #areweatthewrongplace  Thankfully, Mummy didn’t get the date and time wrong! #elsetherewillbetwoblackfaces And we made our way to the streets of New York to enjoy our breakfast event. #IthinkIfitinjustright Blending in with the standee too! #theyshouldhavecastedmeinthemovielor The breakfast event was actually very simple.  An alfresco style brekkie with food served in picnic baskets. Looks hearty …

Going Raw Rawr

We have been on a raw diet for the past few years. While we started mainly on commercial raw food, Mummy made the transition towards DIY raw over the last couple of months. For now, Mummy will purchase our proteins from the supermarket and that does restrict the types we eat. (We usually rotate between lamb, beef and chicken.) But thanks to Howlistic Life, we get to have a taste of Venison at affordable prices! #yeahforourcheapomummy Raw Rawr is made of free range, grass fed Venison from New Zealand. Not only does it include meat and heart, it also contains offals. #soconvenientcan The pre-packed portions are extremely easy to thaw (takes no more than twenty minutes) and really convenient to feed. Each portion weighs 50g and both me and Pecan gets two per day! #aperfectfitforlazymummy To ensure that our diet is balanced, Mummy does include supplements too. Here’s what we get: Protein that changes from day-to-day.  Hoki oil for me and Omega-i for Pecan (from Wooga).  Eon and Fiber blend (Howlistic Life) to meet our …
