My First Outing with Smelly Dog

I brought smelly dog to SAVH (Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped) Dogathon 2008 yesterday.

Everything started out well. KC came to pick us up, with MZ and Teddy in the car. Oreo gave a few warning barks when he got into the car, but otherwise he enjoyed the ride. When we finally (you know how far my place is from Bishan) arrived at Bishan Park II, everybody got out of the car. That’s when things started going wrong.

Oreo cried immediately the moment he was out of the car, and as we walked to the pavement next to the carpark, he started peeing uncontrollably as he walked. It’s not the usual peeing or marking where he pees with his leg up, but he was peeing and walking at the same time. D: He was obviously horrified so we waited a while for him to calm down. But he didn’t feel better. He was just walking around and peeing uncontrollably. I decided to get him home asap as the situation was too stressful for him. I called my brother but he refused to come and fetch Oreo, so I had to ask KC to drive us back. I felt really bad about it cos it was too much trouble to commute back to Jurong again.

Back in the car, Oreo kept panting. He was too shag out from the panic attack and eventually fell asleep on my lap. I felt so bad for putting him through so much stress and just sayang him during the trip back. When he woke up, he actually turned around to look at me and smiled (you know, that doggie smile when dogs look might pleased with themselves? Something like this). Lol. That kuku bird. He must have thought that it was all just a dream. Ultimate short term memory man. Haha.

When we got home, he was ok again. And kept following me around the house (I’m his new best friend!) cos I brought him out for a spin. Really it’s just for a spin, car ride to Bishan and back, even though I originally planned to take him for the Dogathon.

Before bringing him out, I asked my brother a lot of questions before deciding to bring him out. I was under the impression that Oreo was adequately socialised. But his panic attack showed otherwise. I felt (and still do feel) really bad for putting him through such a stressful ordeal. He was really scared of unfamiliar surroundings. I wonder if my brother’s idea of bringing Oreo out is just between ECP and our place. So in Oreo’s experience, he’s only ok with ECP and home. >.>

Anyone who has my MSN knows that I have a whole suite of emoticons based on these monkeys. :p CS went to Guangzhou with Cheryl and bought a pair of handphone accessories for me and my girlfriend. He didn’t plan on buying souvenirs, but felt that he had to get these for us when he chanced upon it. Haha. I thought that it was a very apt gift. Thanks CS and Cheryl!

I decided to keep the girl, and my gf, the guy, so that we have a part of each other. Hahahaha. Super mushy. She couldn’t believe it when I told her this.

Go visit the official website, they have tons of emotes/wallpapers/MSN avatars for download, and they have some really cute merchandise as well. I think these monkeys are even bigger than ๆด‹่‘ฑๅคด.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day! ๐Ÿ™‚

Just downloaded a new layout. Wanted to put on something pink for today, but this is nice as well. ๐Ÿ˜€

Went to have Teppanyaki V Day dinner at Jurong Hilltop Restaurant today. All other couples seemed really bored and were only concentrating on their food. LOL. Comparatively, we were having so much fun.




New Year, New PC

I bought a new PC on Sunday. Wanted to upgrade, but ended up buying all new components. Don’t ask me how much I spent. ๐Ÿ™



  • Intel X38 Chipset
  • Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz
  • Nvidia 8800GT 1GB
  • 2GB RAM (Wanted to buy 2 x 2GB, but they were out of stock. Now running 2 x 1GB)
  • 500GB 32MB HDD (Storage is so cheap man)

Have you seen a 1GB video card before? This is the first time I’m seeing one. It looks really nice, gold gold bling bling.


Ok la, now I should be able to play some uber games on it. ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S. Image quality is bad cos I used my handphone cam and I don’t have any image editor on this PC to edit contrast.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Vintage Effect on Left and Top Right Image

The vintage effect looks very convincing especially since my mirror is a little dirty. Hahaha.

I bought a red dress to wear for CNY this year. I bought red undies as well, but didn’t wear them. ๐Ÿ˜ก Maybe that’s why I’ve been losing at mahjong for the first two days of CNY. Hahaha. But I won at ้€šๅฎต้บปๅฐ† last night! ๐Ÿ™‚

Preparing for ๅˆไธ€


My cousins will be coming over to my place later, so my mom was busy preparing today’s food in the kitchen last night. Look at how bored Oreo O looked.



I started taking random pictures around the flat and found that my dad actually has a very nice collection of figurines. I took some pics of them. The nice ones are uploaded on my flickr.

Ah bit was looking bored too. Like flat on the bottom of his cage bored (refer to Oreo O’s pic above), but he looked up when I went to take a photo of him. Haha.


This domain is an impulse purchase. I wanted, but it was being parked, so I started thinking of random names that people know me by off the top of my head. Some ideas I had:

  • Zulfang
  • Ellisha
  • Estrellalala (because both and are taken)
  • geekgirl/geekgurl/g33kgirl/g33kgurl (all taken)

Didn’t end up using any of my in game nicks because not a lot of people (meaning only my gaming friends) know me by those nicknames. Even though I’ve never used the nick geek girl, or any variant of it, a lot of my friends know me as a geeky girl. Plus, CS and MZ used to call me geek girl in the office, and wasn’t parked, so wa-la! I bought it.

I’m going to live with downloaded themes for a period of time, while I figure out how to create wordpress themes. ๐Ÿ™‚
