A Fatty Package

The day before yesterday was a very special day.

We got us a package delivered! We'd been waiting and waiting...I think it took over 2 weeks to arrive from the US. Guess why?

Yar seriously. So the the US postal service can't read. I mean M-A-L-A-Y-S-I-A looks NOTHING like T-H-A-I-L-A-N-D, does it? Duh.
Having said that, we have a wonderful friend called Paul Wong who lives in the US. And in the US, they have exceptionally good chocolate. Look what he sent us:

Mexican Chocolate – comes in blocks that you can break off and shave, then add to hot milk! Mmmm mmm, can't wait to try it out!

Ooh – Uncle Paul loves us, cos me likes Ghirardelli!

How not to be happy? Got free toiletries somemore.

Just to prove to you what a journey my sweet toiletries and chockies had to go through, check this out:

Don't play play. Am eating up a storm now. And yeah, if you feel like some chocolates, don't ask us. We're not sharing. THANKS UNCLE PAUL!

p/s None of the dogs featured actually consumed any of the chocolates. Chocolates are poisonous to dogs. They were only allowed to sniff em.

A wedding to attend

A slobbery wedding affair:
Pugs in wedding clothes wait for their turn to walk down the aisle during an attempt to break the Guinness record for the largest mass dog "wedding", in Littleton, Colorado May 19, 2007. Fifty dog "couples" were married on Saturday, surpassing the previous record of 26 set in the Netherlands. -Reuters

Singapore, Singapore.

Mowpea enjoys an occasional PCK.
And the shopping is great.
And what a clean country.
Though you have to admit, not unlike other countries, Singapore does open themselves up for ridicule every so often.

Mowpea loooooves this article because it gives them all the more reason to make fun of Singaporeans :-b

Woot! Or rather, Woof! What a hoot!
