A Walk in the City: 1 Fullerton & Marina Bay

Daddy had been wanting to bring Rossi gal to the Merlion, but the snooze monster had been stopping us from doing so. Late nights combined with early mornings doesnt go too well together for us (especially me), I guess. I'm always the last one to sail to La La land.

Finally, Daddy decided to engage the help of the trusty alarm clock. It worked wonderfully. We woke up at 6am on a cool Sunday morning and were outta the house by 6.30am.  

On our way to 1 Fullerton, where the Merlion resides...


The sunrise illuminating the surroundings, what a lovely sight...

It's Daylight. Rise and Shine. Couldnt resist taking a shot of her with the mega-sized 'Durian'...

At 1 Fullerton...

Finally, at the Merlion... :D

After visiting the Merlion, we walked back to Marina Bay...

Resting our feet & taking in the sights by the Singapore River...

We had a long long walk here. It was pretty tiring, but we enjoyed our morning in the city.

A Peek into Our Freezer

Here's a peek into our freezer, shared between Rossi gal & us. :>

Upper deck: The left half with ziplog bags are Rossi gal's meats. The other half  with the 'unhealthy' stuff in sight, yes, it's ours...quick meals with a ding :x and a few packs of our meats (for cooking) stashed beside & behind the quick meals.

Lower deck: More bags of her meats & raw meaty bones, with 2 boxes on the left containing liver and kidney respectively. She eats her organs frozen . I freeze her organs in bite sizes in these boxes and feed them like treats on alternate days.

Below shows the side compartment of the freezer, which also functions as the freezer door.

Upper compartment: Our stuff. Herbs and such.  

Lower compartment: Her stuff. From left to right, the first 4 bags contain her organs (liver & kidney) and the 5th bag is another one of her meats.

On Henderson Waves

We were at Mount Faber early this month. Over the weekend, we explored another area that is just a stone's throw away from Mount Faber. This time, we set foot on Henderson Waves.

Henderson Waves is the highest pedestrain bridge in Singapore. It is built to connect Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park.

My cheery Rossi gal on Henderson Waves.

The scenery from the bridge.

That's how high the bridge is.

Rossi gal is 3 Years Old!

Rossi gal turns 3 today. She has brought lotsa joy and warmth to our little family. She is daddy & mummy's precious little gem.

Happy Birthday to you, our little gem. May you stay happy, playful, energetic, young at heart and healthy always. We look forward to celebrate many many more birthdays with you.

We had a little celebration with our bright & cheery gal in the comfort of our little home, together with her pair of angry bird frens. :>

"It's my Birthday!"

"Daddy, Mummy, can we blow out the candle faster?
Me wanna eat my 'cake'!"

Idea by Mummy and Done up by Daddy.

Rossi gal in Clubpets Magazine

As I flipped through the latest issue (No.42 Dec to Mar 2012) of the clubpets magazine last night, I was both surprised and delighted to see Rossi gal & her angry bird appear in the 'clubpics' section. :> 

I sent in the photo via email to clubpets for the fun of it, when I came across a notice that they were looking for photos of smiling dogs. The theme was, 'Get your Dog to Smile'. I didnt expect it to appear in the magazine, but I'm really happy that it did. :>

I took this photo when she saw the angry bird for the first time. (Daddy bought it for her.) She is always happy to have new toys. And I thought her happy face Vs the bird's angry face looked kinda cute too.

In a way, it is sorta like a 'birthday pressie' for her, as her birthday falls on January, which also means her birthday post is coming up very soon. :D

Walking on Mount Faber

Daddy took us to Mount Faber yesterday. Rossi gal's first time there, though not Daddy & Mummy's. 

This was the place, where daddy & mummy went for a drink when they met each other for the first time. That was years back. For them, it was like a walk down the memory lane, while for Rossi gal, it was a new place to explore.

Empty cable cars were displayed along the path.

 We couldnt resist taking a shot of Rossi gal in one of them. ;p

Directional signs.  

The path ahead, under the sheltered walkway.

We stopped by to appreciate the view from the top. Cable cars were seen sliding to and fro over the sea & lush greenery. What a view.

We passed by 'The Jewel Box', located on the other side of the road.

Ending off with this interesting advisory that was put up along the path. We came across quite a few of this along the way.

Sweet Reminiscence

It's the start of a brand new year & my first blog post for the year. 

Looking back, I have been blogging for more than 2 years. Coming March, it will be exactly 3 years. It has been a lovely experience, sharing & documenting various aspects of Rossi gal's life, like her diet, health and our life together. 

As daddy flipped through Rossi gal's blog, he told me that it was right to start this blog for her. He was the one who encouraged me to do it. And I'm glad I did. I do feel a sense of accomplishment at times, when I look at her blog.

This is a special place to me, daddy and Rossi gal. And this place is created specially for her. I hope to keep it going on, just for her.  

I would like to end off this post by sharing a sweet memory of my Rossi gal.
This is our collection of Rossi gal's puppy teeth. We have been keeping them in one of the glass cabinets in our living room for as long as she is with us.

One day, Daddy just popped the container out and asked me, still remember this? Of course, I do! :>

Her first tooth fell out when she & daddy were getting a little rough while playing 'boxing'. Daddy accidentally knocked the side of her cheek and there, her very first tooth landed on the floor. From then onwards, we continued to add on to our collection of her teeth.

During that time, everyday, me & daddy will scrutinize every area Rossi gal set her paws & feet on; like the floor, sofa, bed & toys, just to collect her teeth. Whenever the sole of our feet touched something hard, we would quickly flip it over to see if it's her teeth. We wanted to collect as many as possible and didnt wanna miss out any of it (if we could).

Well, there should be more, but guessed she already 'processed' them in her tummy before we could get to them. LOL. It's our sweet memory.
