I entered Hero's photo for the pet corner thingy on Straits Times and i received a phone call just 1 or 2 days back that he might be selected! omggggggggggggg. YAY! lots of hugs and kisses to Hero!

Not exactly sure when it'd be published. But it seems like it'll be on the last sunday of january! it'll be in the Life! section. Friends and dogs, remember to look out for Hero's photo!

Christmas + D80

Christmas this year wasn't as spectacular. Must be the economy. Although statistics speak otherwise about the retail sales, you can feel how much more toned down this year's festive season was. a little less noise, a little less attention, fewer presents... the feeling actually felt abit gloomy to me. sure, i haf my moments of fun. but yeah. overall, i think the economy is killing everybody. i didn't even feel christmas approaching! and before i let that fact sink in, it's already over. whoosh.

Still i thank one of my best girlfriends KimSarah for that awesome party (great creamy potato salad by the way, but i like my potato bits larger and chunkier hehe) and that crazy post-party hangout plus that lil talk we had on the bench, AND macs. wow so many stuff. i love you girlfriend! hahaha! thanks to everyone who gave me presents as well!! and thanks to baby Hero who showered me with lots of licks and fur on christmas day itself. (Hero: woof, you're always welcome for more!)

I borrowed Sarah's Nikon D80 after her christmas eve party. I've been lemming for a dslr. reaaaaaaaaally long already. playing with it just made me went crazy. i felt like a tourist for 2 days (before the batt died on me) because i was carrying it everywhere i go! and snapping everywhere i go. Not my first time touching a dslr, but i haven't really got into serious learning. it's more like go with my guts kinda thing. Hero was obviously my first experiment when i got the D80, although i was advised that taking animals requires quite a bit of skill. but haha, who cares! i love Hero. To share some shots:


in my opinion, the camera itself makes a whole lot of difference to your pics already. i just bugged sarah to extend my loan for the D80. gahaha. Hero did try many times to sniff the camera though. it's kind of hard when he suddenly gets up and walks towards you and you realise all you see in the viewfinder is his nose. and it's not my camera, so i was abit paranoid that he might just lick it or something. but phew, didn't! Hero was a good boy. that's it for now, until the next post, lots of love and fur to you!

When's The Holidays Coming...

Hero:
aroo. Mummy and Daddy have been busy. Despite Mummy finishing her A levels, she's still busier than ever, trying to catch up with her friends while attending meetings and preparing for her teaching internship. I don't get to see Mummy very often now. Meanwhile, Daddy has his exams and he's been mugging away......

Sigh! All i do everyday now is to laze around in the house and take my favourite afternoon naps. All I can look forward to are my dinners and night exercises. I hope the true holiday period faster arrives, so i can have so much more fun! Meanwhile... yawn.

Milo My New Friend...

Hero:
Yesterday Mummy brought me out again! She took a cab and stopped at this place where i made a new friend! it was Mummy's best friend, auntie Cherry's house! and when i saw her, she had a doggie with her! woo woo.

Meet my new friend Milo! he's a 10 year old JRT. Anyway mummy and Auntie C brought Milo and I to have a picnic at botanic gardens! i love that place. it's always long walks and nice green grass for me when i go to botanic gardens.

i met a fellow Sammy too! oh he was bigger than me. Mummy says i'm actually at the lower end of the range for my height and weight. The sammy and i sniffed each other's butts...

we decided we like each other. but after awhile the Sammy growled at me. i think he wanted to play fight. but mummy got abit freaked out. the other Sammy owner also pulled his Sammy away. i heard his name's wookah or something. such a cute name! oh by the way, that huge Sammy's 6 years old. Also, he's fluffier than me!

More pictures to let you know what happy doggies Milo and I are yesterday:


after that Mummy and Auntie C thought it was getting too hot for them to sit there and enjoy the sunny weather. If the humans can't take the weather what about us poor doggies? they decided to visit the K9 Cafe! air con air con! More pictures at the cafe to show how Milo and I were even happier!

I'm a happy dog aroo woo woo!

Milo checking the place out. it's the first time he's there!

Milo told me that he can always count on me when he's cold. he loves digging into my white fluffy fur that keeps me (and now him as well) warm!

Pampered dogs. kwakwakwa.

After that, Mummy and Auntie C took Milo and I for a long walk. we walked all the way from K9 to Sixth Avenue Centre and visited some of Mummy's favourite friends. Mummy says daddy, Auntie C and her always head down there for food or laze around. The nice friends of Mummy and Auntie C gave Milo and I water and ice cubes. After that Mummy and Auntie C took Milo and I home! it was a fun-filled day for Milo and I!

On the last note, Milo seems to think i'm a girl... Mummy and I tried telling Milo i'm a boy, but i think he didn't really hear us. Hmm.

Food: Canele's Le Royale

hello readers, today i bring to you my review on Canele's Le Royale chocolate mousse cake! I was in the city area because i was collecting my christmas presents for Hero and his good friend Ozy, the black labrador (the christmas presents etc will be revealed during xmas itself!). As i was pretty early (one hour in fact lol) i shopped around in raffles city! and then i saw Canele, where i've been dying to try its cakes. hence i hopped there and picked one for takeaway!

i have to say, i'm very sure quite a portion of the considerably expensive price tag for its cakes must have went into the packaging. look at the paper bag and box!

and here's the cake i've chosen: Le Royale. Chocolate mousse 66% layered with hazelnut feullitine, almond success and chocolate genoise with rum as its description says. yum yum. my cam really dont do justice to the cake! here's a better picture from their website:

okay now it looks yummy! alright, my first mouth of this cake sent a long "MMMmmmm" to my brain and thoughts. thick chocolate mouse, light cake, and the light yet crunchy base reminded me of a biscuit-y version of ferrero rocher. while many other foodie bloggers rate this cake as good, i think this is great! maybe it's because i haven't tried the others like Obolo and such. but i have to say it is rather expensive.

i'll most probably go back and try some other cakes, but the price do deter me a little. i'll most probably go when i feel abit more generous. but i'll say the Le Royale is good, worth a try.

Le Royale individual cakes retails at $7.00 (before taxes)
Canele is located at Paragon, Raffles City, Shaw Centre and Robertson Walk.
