Happy Vesak Day

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

May all sentient beings be happy ...

... be it basking in the aroma of your own toes ...

... showing off your double chin and tum-tum ...

... or just being your(cute)self.

Apologies for the lack of updates recently. This new job is consuming me!

It's Week 4, and I am still navigating a tough uphill terrain.

A lot of hard work and hard knocks, but all these shall pass!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

The green-eyed monster looks a bit goondu in the pixs taken by my ex-colleague's boyfriend.

Thanks for the pixs, S & R!

When bad things happen ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

... to nice little kitties like Scout, it's the Supreme Being's way of reminding you that everything is impermanent.

Scout could be suffering from
FIP - a fatal, incurable disease. He's got fluid in his chest and is having breathing difficulties. He's back at foster home now but is due for a follow-up vet visit this Friday to confirm if it's indeed FIP.

We are all very distraught :'(

We can only pray that he will not suffer much ...

Tata and Dodo

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Or the kitties formerly known as Doe and Ray :)

Their "parents" Larry and Kaelyn have renamed them Tata and Dodo.

An email update from Larry:

They grow very fast, Tata is 2+ kg while Dodo is about 2kg. Both are equally naughty. My bedsheet, my sofa, my bag...all gone thanks to their claws. We've just bought a pack of Natural Balance to mix with APD. Somehow, they prefer the new food which is 2 times more expensive. I found out 2 interesting things. Dodo likes to eat honeydew, keeps chasing Kaelyn asking for more. And Tata likes plain bread. He can even smell it while sleeping. I have attached some pictures of them taken in my room [now become their room too :( ]

Their sister Meeks sends her love to the boys!!

Twinkle Twinkle

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Thanks to Vegancat, who sent over this lovely clip of our dear little friend, Twinkle!

Twinkle has blossomed into a beautiful kitty, so full of life!

Phyllis, Mei-mei and Lala has done a great job transforming this sickly kitten on the brink of death to a handsome boy.

As busy as...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

... the Singapore port.

This is the view of Tanjong Pagar Container Terminal from my cubicle on 29th floor. But there's simply no time to sit by the window to count the number of containers sitting in the yard.

It's only Day 2, but I am sweating buckets.

There's so much to learn and figure out.

Honeymoon period, did you say? Not at my level.

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Like Kootoo Monster, I could hardly contain my glee too.

Am looking forward to starting my new work tomorrow :)

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

My lovely colleagues gave me this key pouch, and a farewell card that touched my heart.

I was glad to be a source of laughter and fun to them, and am thankful that they made my time there enjoyable.

Am down with a bad throat infection -- the lymph nodes at the neck are swollen, swallowing saliva feels like I am gulping pebbles. The fever refuses to abate, and pain is ravaging the body.

Am looking forward to being healthy again.

A "Nomad" speaks

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Milo: SnZZZzzzzz ...

Goodbye Toa Payoh, Hello Shenton Way!

Milo: What?! Mama Piggy is on the move again?

Yes, I am changing jobs AGAIN.

Friday would be my last day with this listed company, and I am starting work at the new place on Monday.

It would be my 7th(!!) job in 12 years of working life.

Milo: Sigh ... Why can't she be like us cats? We find a nice spot and we stay put!

Will it be my last? Will the Nomad ever settle down for good?
