My Tropical Dream

We had a family meeting recently. Mama says she might consider going back to her homeland for good due to family commitments and finally all of her furrrkids will live under one roof.

However, there are so many things to consider like would Brad and I be able to acclimatise as well as how would Tom and family react towards us. I know I'll get along well with Tom and Nicole as we are siblings but I dread thinking of Brad and Nikki. Both are drama queens and may claw each other's eyes out.

But there's no set date. It could just be talk only...we're happy with the current arrangement. However, in case it's happening, I've done my research and will make a Powerpoint presentation to Mama and Dad. This is my ideal life in the tropics.

1. I wanna live in a village-type house in a lush setting. No more apartments or concrete housing. No more urban setting.

2. Must have mango tree in the backyard that we can climb and build cubby house on.

3. Oh yes, what is tropical life without coconuts, eh? In case the taps run dry, we can drink the juice to our hearts' content.

4. A fish pond with lotus and a gazebo for that afternoon tea sessions... just to ensure endless supply of fresh fish.



5. Ornamental blooms in our garden would be nice.

6. Hmmm...don't forget the ferns and palm trees.


7. Love those regal ginger flowers - as ornaments and flavouring in our favourite fish dish (laksa).


8. Endless supply of edible fruits is essential.

9. As well as endless supply of lamb chops...hmmm...our own sheep in our own backyard.




10. The more live ornaments we have, the better.


Am I too demanding? purrr...meow!

Lulu says your proposed tropical house is great.

That would be nice, dear Kitties! Do come back to Malaysia. There will be rats and dogs for you to chase galore, and keropok lekor to keep you sleek and full of pep. And we can hang out together and throw kitty parties.

Dear Angelina and family

Welcome home in advance!!! But you will have to be in quarantine.

I will welcome all of you with open arms if you come up north!!!

Pssst!!! We share the same dream! I have oft dreamt of retiring in a wooden house on stilts (but must have net access!!!) with lush greenery all around - no flowers cos of allergies hehehe).

Love your ppt presentation.

Take care and hope to meet you and your mama soon!!!

Happy packing!!!

Salam to you and the entire family!

Pi Bani said...

Demanding? You had always been demanding! Sikit tak kesian kat mama...

p/s
word veri says "goatif". Maybe your mama needs to bela a goat instead?

Naz said...

Of course NOT! You are one sensible cat. Well-trained too..
...errr can we be your neighbour? :)

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Lulu dear,
You can move in with us. Am sure Brad would love to chase you around instead of me. purrr.....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

CO78,
Rats and dogs? Hmmmm......Mama says I could find work at some food stalls - chasing rats! Oooooh....I love kitty parties. purrr...meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Paula,
Apparently no quarantine for cats from Australia. I've checked. Told you I've done my research. But at the moment nothing's confirmed. Who knows....my dream home could be in your neck of the woods. purrr...meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Pi,
No...my Mama can't have goats.... Do you know how many goats and sheep and cows become her sacrifice every year? purrr...meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Naz,
Good idea. But don't complain when your kids prefer my company than yours....har har har *evil laughs*

Au and Target said...

We saw you at Ee Lynne's and thought we'd drop by. GREAT house! Def a kitty paradise. But oh the quarantine. Although, maybe coming from a rabies free country you wouldn't have to do that coming here???

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Au and Target,
Welcome to my world. Quite a crazy one... Checked you all out too. You're hillarious!!! har har har ...
Don't worry about the quarantine. No need for us Aussie cats, if ever the BIG MOVE happen. purrr....meow!

Pat said...

Hello dear! I dunno how I missed this when it came out :(

I love that wooden house! It's simply smashing!

And it would be no problem filling your garden with everything you show in those pictures: I can offer you a cutting, or a young plant of almost all of them, from mine!

Just let me know, yah?

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Pat,
If it happens...it's still a big IF.... We'll keep you posted, OK? purrr....meow!

Razee Salleh said...

Hiya Sydneykitty,

Wow! you miight move eh? The move in itself will be an adventure.
If you do find yourselves on this side of the (ahem) pond, it would be great.

Though, I think you will miss your current home and friends terribly.

kay_leeda said...

Ohhh...sad nyer. Siapa nak take Kak Nissa walk-walk eat air in Sydney when you are not around nanti? Anyway, no matter what is the final decision, we are very sure both you & Brad will be just fine. Trust Mama eh?

Wahhh...I must second Aunty Pi. Sooooo demanding kaaaa?? Mau like that ah? I help look-look for u here in Yan, Kedah :)

ninot said...

Dear Cat-in-Sydney,

Looks smashing! The house especially. You can share a treehouse with Cruikshanks!

We can supply wild ginger and bunga kantan and misai kucing and bird's nest and the rest. Shall we become neighbours in the highlands, maybe Janda Baik (1000 feet above ground). That way, if anything happens, selisih malaikat 44, we will be way above sea level.

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Uncle Razee,
As for missing friends and home....well...home is where Mama is. She can't leave us here....it's still early days, OK? purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Kay,
We'll escort Nissa from KL to Sydney and back. How about that? Yan, Kedah? Would be interesting....ada ke kedai jual Royale Fancy Feast? Errr....check if there's a vet too, OK? purrr...meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Ninot,
I heard the highlands there are not safe either - over development, landslide etc....so how? purrr....meow!

Aimy Bazura Mohamed said...

Ayo!! Pls don't come back lah.. No place for me to go and bunk if I need to run away every now and then to Sydney... He he he...

But I have to salute your nice and beautiful tropical dream...

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Aimy,
You can come and bunk at our new place too.... purrr...meow!

Andrea Wh@tever said...

Oui! bloody demanding, ain't you?

P.S: can Miss Kate go over to stay... like, for good? Muahahahahaha

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Andrea dear,
Hmmm...why? Don't you like Ms Kate anymore? Would she be suitable for Brad? purrr...meow!

Cheqna said...

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Cat, I love what you love. Can I come along too?
I bring my Doberman, can or not? Lee.

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Uncle Lee,
Doberman? Hmmm...we'll see if the backyard is big enough for everyone. Am sure we can train him to like cats...and not as dinner, OK? purrr...meow!

Cheqna said...

Cat-in-Sydney said...
