Godpa returned from Chiang Mai recently with a healthy tan even though it was cool weather there. It was his first time there so he was rather surprised to see many toy dogs owned by locals with the majority being white poodles. Local breeds were also common and much welcomed at temples. He spotted one sunbathing at Wat Chedi Luang which is a famous historical site. Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy the warm sunshine with cool breeze blowing.
Other than the weather I think the food would appeal to me too judging from what godpa showed me on how the locals enjoy funky food like rice mixed with pig's blood and condiments.
While godpa's away I had been "abused". Look at the horrible haircut I got from godpa's dad! My cute round face has been replaced with a sharp pointy look and badly trimmed fur.
Back in Singapore, godpa's been feasting a bit. He'd been invited to a Christmas gathering where the hostess prepared all the food. It was a unique gastronomic experience as she came from Britain and made traditional stuff like apple pies and icing coated chocolate cakes. There was also coconut ice cream cake, chocolate ice cream cake, beef meatballs, and a variety of cheeses. Wish I were there too, unfortunately she has cats in the house so I gave it a miss. There are four more days to Christmas so maybe I can get myself invited to other feasts.
