Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel won a third consecutive world drivers' title by three points in the Brazilian GP.
In an incident-packed, rain-affected race, Vettel fought back to finish sixth after dropping to last on lap one following a collision.
His rival Fernando Alonso of Ferrari finished second, meaning he needed Vettel to be lower than seventh. (read more here)

Apt Punishment

The one with the opposable thumbs has been very negligent. We found the cause: This book!

How long does it take to finish reading this tome? Mrs Cheapskate bought it coz it was on sale.....hmmm....

So, the felines had to find a way to stop her before things get out of control. Of course, Seb the Destroyer was assigned to execute the plan. He's very able that chap.

Oh yes....the penultimate and last pages! We're satisfied now. What a satisfactory ending (for us)!!!
Angelina's note: I should have recorded her screaming, "Sebastian! Don't eat my book!" purrr....meow!

Mama's Punishment

The cats decided that Mama must be punished. It's for leaving us to the mercy of the kittysitter for days.... we know her weakness so the punishment has to be where it hurts most. Are y'all ready to hear the story?

First, we sent Sebastian in at around 3.30am this morning. Stealthily he went and plonked himself on Mama's chest. Then we heard a scream, a piercing sound in the wee hours.... What happened? What did she see? Imagine waking up to THIS!!!

Seb the Zombie scared the pants off Mama!!!
It took quite a while for Mama to recover from the shock. She was shaking, I tell you! She dashed off to the loo and while she was in there, we prepared another "memorable" scene for her in the bedroom.

Brad must get an Oscar for this performance. He was a convincing victim.
There were more screams! Mama thought her darling Seb has turned into a monster that murdered Brad. The rest of us had to stifle our giggles....can't laugh out loud yet as the finale was yet to come.

Then it was time for Mama to prepare herself for work. Oh yeah! Another scream.

Even the wardrobe is haunted by Seb the Zombie.
Gotcha Mama!!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

Mama @ Work: Last Chance Qurban

By this time next week, people from around the world will be commemorating the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham a.s.) and his son Ismail (Ishmael) by sacrificing sheep, cattle or even camels. There's a set of criteria in choosing the animals, like making sure they are not pregnant (if female) and have no visible impairment. Mama's organisation has been offering the Qurban service since 1989. While people in developing countries can still slaughter animals in their backyards, those in more developed countries would find it a hassle to ask abattoirs to slaughter just one animal for them. Thus, NGOs like Mama's would assist them so that bulk slaughter can be done at the abattoirs. More than just the slaughter process, the meat would then be further processed at a cannery to get products that have longer shelf life. Thus, the canned Qurban concept is born. In Malaysia, it is still normal practice for village elders to organise slaughter at places of worship. While this is good in fostering good relationship among neighbours, last minute orders however are impossible. Take the present time for example, most surau committees would have closed down Qurban orders as only a week is left until Eid. What do you then? Just click on the poster below. Mama's organisation is able to accommodate last minute orders because of the good relationship nurtured with the abattoirs over the years.
For further information, go to or call +603 2288 1996 or +603 2282 1996. Last day for orders is 25 Oct 2012.

Mama @ Work: Water Water Everywhere....

I'm so happy that my Mama and her team have delivered another portion of their water and sanitation project. It would mean less time spent elsewhere and more time spent with me....errr....not quite but that's not the point.

What I'd like to say is that about 3,000 inhabitants of an island in Sabah are now enjoying the fruits of Mama's labour, first, in the form of clean drinkable water, second, modern latrines and third, electricity from solar power. The project was featured in The Star where the reporter also interviewed Mama. The scanned pages are as the following.

Happy moment for Mama (& gang) on  project delivery day.
The children can now enjoy going to the toilets!
Solar is power....for the children....!
Completion of the project, however, doesn't mean that Mama will stop visiting the island as "we will continue with the upkeep and maintenance for at least another three years," she said. Hmmm...does that mean we'll relocate there, Mama?

At present, Mama is working hard to convince some corporate sponsors to fund several additional projects that will benefit the islanders in the long run. Among them, skills training for the young people and income generation for the families.

Angelina's note: Will I achieve my dream of becoming an island cat? purrr....meow!

Hibernate No More!

One.....(still zzzzz.....)
Two.....(half awake)
....and Three....(fully awake!)
Angelina's note: As you can see, I'm done with hibernating as it is now officially spring in Australia. Not that it matters now that I live in the Northern Hemisphere, am still a Down Under-er at heart. 
First things first: what's this I hear about a certain AmeriCat called Katie voted as Ruler of The World? And MY Brad Pitt having the hots for her? On top of that, William had the cheek to bring his Kate visit MY country while I hibernate? 
As of now, call me Most High Empress Angelina the Dictator. Need to put my paws down on stuffs. purrrr....meow!

When CatMamas Meet

What happens when my Mama meets Dung Dung's Mama? Tante Sandy, who blogs here, is in town for her brother's wedding. It's complicated....she lives in Jakarta, Indonesia with Uncle Erwin and Dung Dung while her brother (and his bride) live in Geraldton, Western Australia. Meanwhile, their parents (Tante Sandy and her brother's) as well as the bride's family live here in Malaysia. Thus, the wedding receptions (four ceremonies in total) are all held here. 

We've known Tante Sandy for a couple of years, through the blogosphere of course... so of course we were thrilled when she said she was coming to town. The first interface was just between the know....get to know each other first and bitch about the masters felines. Hmmm.....terrible women!

They had a sumptuous lunch of steamboat....plenty of fish and seafood. Yeah...more for the peeps since the felines were not there.
Then, my Mama had to show off our favourite store in some souvenirs and catnips for Dung Dung...
Oh yeah....the virtues needed for the staff.
That's me in the middle....hic!
Brad's note: You're pretty, Tante Sandy. mwah mwah mwah!!! Ohh...they also visited Ikea (coz there's none in Indonesia). har har har *evil laughs*

Laundropreneur No More!

Sebastian's application to be a laundromat entrepreneur has been rejected. He doesn't quite get the term "delicate" yet.... His first client, Mama, doesn't really mind her "delicates" furrified but not wetted with his saliva or bited with his fangs. Back to the drawing board, Seb!
The delicates were used as scratching pads too.
The guilty face!

Brad's notes: She who sleeps, hibernates! Oh well...I'll just continue with the blogging duties then. har har har *evil laughs*

A Citizen At Last

I failed the citizenship exam last year so didn't get my citizenship. This year, I worked really hard and didn't take long nap breaks in the classroom. That's my pix holding up my right paw while I recited the oath of allegiance and the five pillars of Rukunegara. I am, after all, the most handsome cat in the world (according to my Mama, at least). So, everyone, peeps and kitties,


Brad the Most Handsome
