We’re babysitting Waylah for our friends for 2 months while they’re out of the country and it has been so fun.
She’s a really gentle, sweet and obedient girl… a huge difference from my boisterous and quite rebellious Maomao. Both are lovable in their own ways, but Waylah is definitely a breeze to take care of in comparison. Haha.
It’s our last week with her (sniff) so we decided to bring her for a swim, which we’ve heard that she really loves!
We chose Sunny Heights (formerly K9 Kulture) because it was near to where we live, and also because I don’t know where else is available, haha. ^^;;
It was a weekday afternoon, which meant that we had the entire pool(s) all to ourselves for 90% of the time we were there. We did meet another couple with a friendly 2 year old dog, and the dogs played together for a while before the couple had to leave.
Here she is having fun playing fetch with a coconut husk which the other couple ingeniously brought to the pool.
We had a great 1 hour there, it was well worth the $16 we paid! I do wonder how they sustain the costs of running a pool when it’s probably empty on most weekdays… but I do hope they manage to make ends meet; it is a great way for dogs to take a dip in a safe environment and clean waters (compared to our dirty beaches)!
She was exhausted by the time we left the pool, and snoozed in the car while we drove home. :)
The fluffiest, sweetest, and happiest friend I could ever have.
You will always be with me, and I, with you.
I’m everything I am, because you loved me.
For all those times you stood by me
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you
You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘cuz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me
I attended a wedding dinner at SEA Aquarium with my mum recently, as her plus one. Again, I attempted to curl my hair, but either the (crazy) humidity is not having it, or my hair iron has reached the end of its road.
This hair is after 2 rounds of hair spray, blow drying upside down, and curling in 2 layers (which I have never done before). And still, the curls died sometime into dinner. What do I have to do to make my curls stay?!
We got to the location at around 7, and the cocktail area was around a cylindrical tank. We sat there admiring the fishes while waiting to enter the dinner area.
When the clock struck 8, it was finally time to go in, and this was what greeted us.
It must be the most unique wedding venue I’ve been to so far. Probably cost a pretty penny, too. The seats were in 3 tiers, and my mum and I got a table right in front of the huge glass panel. Lucky us. :)
Having a huge aquarium as a backdrop while dining is not an everyday experience!
I hate it when photos are grainy and low-quality, but it’s just not practical to lug a DSLR around on a normal day. Hopefully, the day that camera photos are super high quality, will come very soon!
The floral decorations were lovely too. First time seeing trees at a wedding dinner! I think they’re meant to be sakura?
Anyhow, the trees created a very romantic and whimsical atmosphere. Food-wise, it was average, but I guess you can’t have everything eh.
I have to say though… when I came here as a visitor, there were notices requesting silence, and flash photography was forbidden.
But uh… during the wedding dinner, somehow these rules were just thrown out like they never existed. Loud music, floodlights that shone like lighthouses, and the emcee’s booming voice resonated throughout the entire dinner.
I thought that even the slightest noise and small camera flashes are supposed to traumatise the fishes? What in the what?
Did I just witness the power of what money can do? My, my.
