All Dogs Go To Heaven

Today, my roomie, Shu, wanted to see if a dog that was run-over by a car yesterday was still alive. She might even have brought it back to the house (I wouldn't have minded..) But I thought I would be relieved if it was dead. Instead I was startled when I saw it, because the dog resembled my dog Pickles who ran off from the my home last year, never to return. I kept imagining it was breathing ever so slightly but it looked like a dog that just wanted to be left alone to die, unresponsive. So we left. Before that we checked the KT veterinary office but it was closed (public holiday). We weren't even sure if they checked out dogs here because a local told us that dog owners usually send their sick dogs over to Kuantan.

I remember coaxing my dog, Pepper, to life again, when he inexplicably refused to eat or drink for a few days and simply lay down all the time. Man, that was one depressed dog. He eventually started to eat again after my several attempts at coaxing him. Pepper was an old favorite dog of mine and I say was because Pepper died when I was in college. He was poisoned apparently and my sisters found his body in the morning. (This post is being increasingly difficult to write...)

"Anyway, I love you Pepper and no other dog will ever mean the same to me as you do to me."

Paddy, Lucky & Patches

Life became a little brighter again with my increasing attachment to Lucky, my black and white mini bundle of terror. I love all my dogs, Patches, Paddy + Coco (whom I haven't even seen yet) and it's funny how much I realize this a whole South China Sea away from them and all it took was one dog lying by the roadside, quietly waiting to die alone.

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)

I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.

3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
