Indy’s visit to the vet’s

The reason I decided to take Indy is that he only has one functioning kidney. One of his kidneys is much smaller than the other and this is probably from way, way back when he was first rescued from the drain as a tiny kitten with all kinds of infections.

Indy was […]

The amazing hospitality of the Tawau people

We just came back from a short but very happy and memorable trip to Tawau to attend Ming-Yi and Yui Ping’s Tawau wedding reception this weekend.

We had our Subang reception last weekend, and I cannot help but draw some comparisons between the two, so please do allow me to share my experience.

Upon our […]

Happy New Year 2019!!!

Indy and his “crazy” ways

Indy does the craziest stunts. He’s a real character to contend with.

I have noticed for the longest time that he wants to do whatever I do.

The happy and well-fed dogs and cats on Phuket Island

We made a quick get-away to Phuket Island on Christmas Day and just came back this evening! I needed a short break from all the routine and this quick get-away was good.

A red-themed “potpourri” blanket (fundraising)

After publising the photos of the two small potpourri blankets I made for the cats, using remnant cloth, we are pleased that one of our readers, Che Khalifa, decided to order two of such blankets (single-sized, ie. at least 55 in by 75 in).

Here is the first one:

Beauty in chaos!


Tokyo Day 3b: The Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden and…Sayonara!

Since this is our last day (can’t leave the cats for too long and both children who were minding the cats, also have to get back to work), we decided to take it free and easy, so it’s another park in the afternoon.

The temperature on the two previous days had been about 14 degrees, […]

Tokyo Day 3a: Imperial Palace and the Kitanomaru Park

It’s Monday and we planned to visit the Imperial Palace, so we took the subway to the station nearest to the Imperial Palace.

It was raining in the morning, luckily I had bought a cat umbrella from Kamakura the day before!

A moat surrounds the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace and these […]
