Not Me, Him!!!!

Don't box me up or freeze me.... 
Do it to him instead. He's a copy cat.
Angelina's note: The spoilt brat has been making my life miserable again. Naughty boy! purrr....meow!

Singing on Saturday

Sing with me. Top of the World by the Carpenters.

Such a feelin's comin' over me
There is wonder in most everything I see
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eyes
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream 
Everything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear
It's because you are here
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen 
I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world 
Something in the wind has learned my name
And it's tellin' me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
There's a pleasin' sense of happiness for me
There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here
I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world

Angelina's note: I was singing at the top of my lung at the connecting bridge of the once tallest building in the world. I think it still holds the record for being the tallest twin towers. purrrr.....meow!

psst... you can find the video on YouTube. or just ask Mr Google.

Pictorial Restaurant Review

A sight that makes a cat's heart goes "Yippee!!!!!" - this is the entrance of the restaurant where rows of fresh seafood await.
Drool...drool....these are called groupers - pink, spotted, stripy, brown....all yummy fish...
Such handsome lobsters. Very very delicious too..... fellow countrymen, I'll eat you anytime. Fancy meeting this way, eh?
Funny looking shellfish from Canada. Don't they look like ducks' bills? 
These crabs are weird looking too. The label says "spider crabs."
Remember the Pearl Lobster? Hehehe...this is the "after" pix. No fuss grill with tartare sauce. yummylicious.
We had a grouper too - steamed with ginger and light soy sauce. Succulent - out of this world! 
We had a table that's just by the sea....nice sea breeze too.
General view of the restaurant. Notice the use of frog buttons on the chair covers? So creative.
Eye candies on stage...oops...traditional dancers entertained us throughout dinner.
Diners were invited to dance the joget lambak at the end of the stage show. Mama posed with the whole troupe too but she won't let me publish that pix.   
Then we walked off the calories at the night market. Not too busy as we were there on a week-day night. 
Despite her vow of: No more spending, Mama managed to do extensive damage to her bank account. 
Angelina's note: This is my first restaurant review. Not naming it but it's right smack in Batu Ferringhi, Penang. purrr....meow!

What's the Point?

In my travels (or adventures), I sometimes come across stuffs that defy logic. Like this padlocked and chained wooden door, for instance. Can someone tell me the market price for a good sturdy door nowadays that the owner secures it thoroughly  even though the building it's attached to has no walls?


Angelina's note: Am confused. The human mind is too complicated. purrr....meow!

A Waterfall By Chance

We were looking for this..... 
When we saw this...
And this. Remember this as a future landmark (in case someone demolish the makeshift signboard). 
The building, I believe, is not a farm house but rather a tua pe'kong. 
At first glance, not much of a waterfall, I thought. we really have to climb those steps? 
Ladies and Gentlemen, Cats and Felines, this is what we found after all the huffing and puffing. Pawesome, eh? 
Dad was experimenting with the manual features of the DSLR and captured this. Fancy a swim anyone?

This handsome chap came by to say hello to us.
Weird looking "bonsai" - I call this the constricting boa style.
Despite the hefty fine stated on the signboard, the litter bugs spoilt the place.
I thought these were my lunch....
Or these perhaps? Come here fishy fishy....come to mummy.... yummmm....
So, next time you're in Batu Feringghi, forget the pubs, or night market, or fancy hotels, go for a dip at this unknown waterfall. Refresh your soul, yeah! The locals dub this place as Cinta (love) on the Rocks. Beats me how they come up with this name. purrr....meow!

Why I'm Home Alone Sometimes

First they welcomed you and then they don't allow you in? Let's lobby to end this doofus policy at hotels all over the world. I demand that all hotels, motels, whatever hospitality brand you use, to be pet friendly....or at least feline friendly. purrrr.....meow!

Tongue on Thursday

Mama: Wake up, Angelina. I want to take your pix.
Angelina: Purrrlease Mama...I wanna sleep. Leave me alone.
Mama: That's more like it. But open your eyes a little bit more.
Angelina: You're impossible Mama. I hate that flash. 
Mama: Hey...turn this way. I won't use the flash, promise....
Angelina: Mama...purrrlease...I want to go back to sleep.
Mama:  Hey...what's with the tongue? That's so rude.
Angelina: Let sleeping cats lie or you get the tongue.
Peeps, this incident happened many many moons ago when I was still a kitten. I've learned to behave more appropriately in front of the camera since. Life with my Mama can be very challenging, sometimes. She's too fond of the box with the lens and flash. Upgraded her equipment thrice (so far) in my lifetime.  purrr...meow!

Happy Gotcha Day, Tom!!!!

14 January 2004.
A teeny weeny skinny kitty wrap itself around Mama's feet in front of a bank in Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (waahhh...posh stray, eh?)
And he was picked up and brought home!
The rest, as they say, is history.

Would you adopt someone who looks like this? har har har *evil laughs*
Look at him now! All 7kg of him!

Happy Gotcha Day, Tom Cruise! It's been seven wonderful years. purrr....meow!
