Charlie & friends to start the week.

Been a while since I last posted about Charlie, my furry son.

So…I’m going to break that drought.

Here are some pictures taken of him over the past few months to start your week with. Just because Charlie is awesome. True story.

I’ve included pictures of other pups as well, cause they’re just too cute not to be shared.

# – Took this picture of Charlie after Ellie sent this link to me, hehe. He was very cooperative and still when I took the picture, good boy!

# – Charlie at the back of my car. He always looks the happiest while on the way to his sitter’s and after we pick him up from the sitter’s to go home. He loves all of us unconditionally. No, I’m not jealous of my sitter, I’m just happy that there are more people who sayang him :)

# – Charlie at the vet. He never gets used to the cold metal examination table but he’s such a darling to handle, calm and still (according to our vet, Cik Hawa).

# – Got this picture at a pet store. Seeing these babies being locked up in dirty cages break my heart. By the way, do check out this news about the city of Toronto banning the sales of puppies sourced from puppy mills. What a superb decision by the government! I wonder when will Malaysia achieve such awareness?

# – Napping with my son <3

# – I think the BF was giving Chacha a simulated rollercoaster ride :P

# – Made him posed for a picture during one of his walkies. He is very likely staring at a cat here.

# – Having a tender moment with daddy <3

# – The BF hangs out with one of my mom’s three shih tzus, Pitt-Pitt. His name is so peculiar but you’d understand when you notice the other male shih tzu in the family is called Brad-Brad. Pitt-Pitt is almost blind in both eyes due to suspected neglect from his previous owners but my mom is totally spoilling him now.

# – Charlie’s classic sulking pose. Body flat on the floor, back towards us and his little face away from us. Happens when he’s not getting what he wants…hugs, attention and sofa access. So spoilt!

# – When he does get sofa access though, Charlie is #likeaboss.

Have a great week, peeps!

Pet-friendly beach resort in Cherating, Kuantan.

Last weekend, the entire family went to Cherating for my Mom’s birthday. Ruby’s Resort was the natural choice for accommodation as it’s pet-friendly and I believe it is the only pet-friendly resort in the entire nation.

# – Charlie <3

The place was truly wonderful! We had such a great time with our furkids. Mom brought along Sisi, Brad & Pitt while we brought Charlie. It’s the very first time our doggies got to see the beach!

# – Charlie with daddy.

# – My daddy chasing after Pitt.

# – My parents running with Brad and Pitt.

Chatted with Ruby about her resort and shocked to hear that she had guests who secretly took off at 2am leaving the beds soiled with dog poo and pee. I was so shocked to hear that there are people who behave such a way! It’s disgusting!

That’s why Ruby now has a policy for guests with pets to bring their own bedsheets. Honestly, I was rather taken aback when I learnt of the bedsheet policy but after listening to Ruby, I can totally understand why she decided to impose it. I’m just thankful that she didn’t decide to ban pets from her resort thanks to that terrible experience.

By the way, Ruby herself has 9 cats and 3 dogs and various other animals as pets!

# – Charlie and his sandy nose, hehehe.

# – Was about to keel over and die chasing after excited Charlie <3

# – BF taking picture of wet Charlie.

Bringing our own bedsheets was absolutely nothing considering the fun and happiness we got from vacationing with our furkids :)

# – My Dad’s still got it!

# – With the resident doggie, Stout. He is possibly the most friendly, adorable dog I’ve ever met!!!

# – Mom with Stout’s sister, Princess. Also impossibly friendly!!

Of course we had superb food while in Cherating. One restaurant worth noting is Restoran Duyong, which is less than 5 minutes away from Ruby’s Resort. Aside from serving fantastic seafood, it’s also pet friendly! :)

# – Deep fried squid. Crunchy but not overcooked…YUMMY!

# – Tom Yam fried rice. Spicy but tasty.

# – Perfectly stir fried kailan with salted fish.

# – Black pepper crabs with glass noodles. Orgasmic!

# – The interesting dish called Loy Katong. Delicious deep fried battered fish and vegetables with some raw vegetables and delicious spicy dipping sauce.

Such a fun and relaxing weekend. I can’t wait to go back to Ruby’s Resort!

How to peel a pomelo and torture your dog for fun.

My dad went to Ipoh recently, an idyllic city in Northern Malaysia for a game of golf with his friends. He brought home a couple of signature goodies, namely baked salted chickens (orgasmic!), green bean biscuits (meh!) and pomelos (yums!).

# – Pomelo.

This is a post on how to peel a pomelo and then torture your dog for fun.

# – First of all, cut off the top of the pomelo as close to the flesh as possible, about an inch from the top.

# – Like this…

# – Then score from the start of the peel all the way to the bottom without cutting through. Do this all around the pomelo.

# – Using your fingers, pull the thick pomelo peel away from the side of the flesh.

# – Lastly, insert your finger underneath the bottom of the peel, and pull it off.

# – The result….

# – Then, peel the thick soft skin off the flesh.

# – Finally, enjoy the sweet pomelo fruit while…

# – …….having a good laugh at your poor dog wearing his new hat.

# – No dog was harmed at the expense of our enjoyment. Not physically anyway…..

Have a good weekend, peeps!
