New Year Resolutions 2017

Mummy really isn’t the sort to come up with new year resolutions. #aiyacosshehardlyachievesany #imeannevernothardly Hence, it was kinda weird when she sat us down and had a heart-to-heart chat to ask us what we would like to get out of 2017. #gotsoseriousanot #onlyonepersonwastalking #twootherswerejuststaringatthetreatsinherhands Nonetheless, to get her off our backs, we decided to come up with a list of resolutions that we aim to achieve! Let’s start with the 14 year old granny! 1. Be alive (AND HEALTHY) at the end of the year #comeonlasheis14whatyouexpect Pecan’s recent health checkup in December was excellent. This ah ma is as strong as steel and even passed her blood test and ultrasound with flying colours. I guess it’s not too much to expect that she will fulfil this resolution easily. #pawscrossed 2. Throw a birthday bash for her Mummy always wanted to organise a birthday party for either of us. But there’s one thought that never fails to hold her back – Got people want to attend meh? This year, we decided that yes, we’re going to …

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 …

Made with Love: DIY Dog Toothpaste

Mummy is very particular about our day-to-day hygiene and health. One thing that she takes pride in, is how she manages to brush our pearly whites. Not just that.  She does it EVERYDAY. Religiously. #sheprobablywishesthatwecanbrushitourselves #sorrywedonothaveopposablethumbs PS: Ah ma got stinky breath, so I sit far far away. I started brushing my teeth when I was just a two month old puppy. Since the habit started really young, I am actually very fond of it. #thatexplainswhymyteethlooksogood I am 6 this year, and judging from the condition of my teeth, I’m very confident to say that there is no need for any scaling anytime soon. #thevetswhoIseearealwaysveryimpressed #importanceofbrushingteeth  (Okay la, Mummy thinks raw bones play a larger part, but that’s for another day/another post) Pecan, on the other hand, is almost bo-gay (toothless) after two scaling sessions to rid her of her bad (BAD, BAD) breath.  Now, her breath is way better. And to ensure that she doesn’t have to go under anesthesia in future, Mummy is doing her best to keep those remaining teeth clean and …

Made with love (once again) – Dehydrated treats!

We got busy with Mummy’s newest toy… a dehydrator! To be exact, it’s a Rommelsacher Automatic Dehydrator. This isn’t our first dehydrator. We used to have one that Mummy brought back from the states. Too bad for us, it gave way while it was chucked away in storage during our move. So, that gave Mummy a new reason to go shopping. #mouldyliao #mummyjustwantedareasontobuyanicerone There really isn’t many options for affordable dehydrators locally. Many of the meat dehydrators range in the high $700s.  #cannotaffordlor On the other hand, way cheaper ones are available on online stores. However, they don’t come with warranty and that kinda worries Mummy a little. Thus, to be safe (especially since the devices have to be left on for many hours), Mummy decided to invest in a decent one that isn’t too extravagant nor take up too much counter space. #itissmallenoughthatwecanevenfitinthebox #wheregotdogseeboxsohappyone #showingourinnercat Wondering what we are going to dehydrate? Ta-dah~ #pecanisadumbblondeindeed #howtodehydrateacupcake  #seeIsosmart I just need opposable thumbs to help me slice this chunky meat up. #ofcoursenotla #justkidding Here’s what’s on the …

Happy Lunar New Year!

Our Lunar New Year was pretty blah~ For starters, we’re still staying with Grandmummy as our new place is not yet already. Thus, we really couldn’t have any friends over. #waituntilourneckslonglongliao Secondly, we weren’t included in any of our parents’ house visiting plans. #boohoohoo  Oh well~ Nonetheless, we were still dressed to the nines for the occasion. We ended up parading around the house for no one to see. #sosadhor Thank you Godmummy for the lovely outfits from Bangkok! #sighmatchymatchywithpecanagain Ah ma showing off her pretty dress and *cough* sexy *cough* dress. #oldliaosstilldaretodressuntillikethat Me looking like a dumpling in my outfit. Well, we all agreed that ah ma’s outfit was way cuter than mine. Mummy commented that the male outfit would be more complete if it also came with a hat. So she decided to do some lousy photoshop. Tadah~ #justforherownkick #tookherdamnlongla #sheisreallynotsavvy Oh well, wishing everyone a happy lunar new year! Hope you have a great monkey year ahead! PS: We do welcome ang baos. So please send them this way to help fund …

Our ‘Reunion’ Dinner!

Lunar New Year is just around the corner. Unfortunately for us, we won’t be able to tag along for our parents’ reunion dinner. Don’t feel too sorry for us, because Mummy already made up for it! #mummyreallyisdabest To satisfy our little tummies, Mummy went ahead and ordered a Superdog Kitchen’s Chinese New Year special for us! Hehe, of cos we must dress up for the meal – featuring our Monkey Bandanas from Loyal.D! Sniffing and checking out the goodies in store for us. Ta-dah~ it was the Ong-Lai-Loh! Because Mummy’s lousy photography skills cannot do Ong-Lai Loh justice, here’s how gorgeous it really is! In case you’re wondering, it smelt and tasted every bit as good as it looked. In fact, Mummy couldn’t resist and took a slice herself.  Ah ma and myself were seriously concerned that she was gonna finish everything herself. #yalasheisthatgreedy #hengsheleftsomeforus #elsewesureblackfacewholeCNY Photo credit: Superdog Kitchen Waiting to dig in. #thisisclealyatorturousmoment #hurrylehwewannaeatonehor Our hungry and impatient tummies were extremely excited. #diediemustgivemummyaperfectshotelseshewillnotletuseat #ourlivessuck Okay, this isn’t the best shot of me but Mummy …

Sam’s Pick – Zee.Dog Accessories

For my birthday this year, our dearest sponsors, Howlistic Life, showered me and Pecan ah ma with products from one of their new brands, Zee.Dog! #freethingsequalstohappymummy #yalaourmummyisacheapo #happymummyequalshappydogs We’re clearly too spoilt for choice! We decided to try on the harnesses for starters. Sam is wearing the Chewy Mesh Plus Harness while Pecan’s donning the Barracuda Mesh Plus Harness. Careful hor, I’ll bite like the sharks on my harness. #suddenlysomanly “Ah ma, there is a fly on your nose!” The harnesses were really comfortable and fitted us nicely.  (We both wear an S) We loved how edgy the Skull logo looked and it turns out to be functional as well – it helps hold the stitches together. While we loved the harnesses, Mummy noted that it might not be great for dogs that pull a great deal (aka Pecan).  #pecanahma’slifemissionistopullontheleashandbarkateveryone Nonetheless, these eye-catching harnesses will serve as great outfits for parties or outings. Well, next up. Of course the birthday boy gets the next pick. More sharks please! JAWRRR.. erm, I mean RAWRRR I love …

I turned SIX – my second celebration!

And my celebration continues. This time, with the second most important *cough* lady *cough* in my life. #ohmancannotbelieveIhadtosaythat For starters, we turned up for my party dressed to the nines in our new Crew La La collars. Mummy is damn ridiculous la.  When she was shopping for the collars, she was worried that the bows would get lost in our shaggy coats. Hence she decided to opt for the bigger design. Well done lor.  #nowwelookstupid #thebowisasbigasmyface Oh well, at least you can’t miss it for now. Thankfully, the bows are detachable. #phew For once, Mummy really planned ahead for my birthday this year.  #sheusuallyisverylastminuteone She actually ordered personalised bunting just for us since October last year. #wahsotouchedleh This is from ms.emmeline.pets. So cool right? It’s a pity that the clipart cannot be customised.  But we still adore it! Best of all, it is so re-usable. #bepreparedtoseeitoverandoverandoveragain The cake had to be the highlight of the party and possibly my birthday. Thank you so much Pawoof for accommodating our order! If you thought the cake looked …
