Tiger, an update

This is Tiger my circa three years old Shiba inu that I adopted 4 months ago. He is not perfect.  He is antisocial with dogs and human, he likes to nib people when he gets too excited, and he can be aloof from time to time.  But I love him, and in the four months we had him Tiger has showed us his capacity to love us is endless.  He may never change and always be what he is, but when there’s love what else can I ask for ?

baby, oh baby

It has been 13 weeks and 2 days since we adopted Tiger.  It’s not easy dealing with an antisocial dog (towards human and dogs). We are working on it. But I had doubts along the way

This morning I woke up to a BIG surprise. A family member has accidentally left the garage door wide open all night. Our garage and backyard is connected, where Tiger sleeps. And the bigger surprise? Tiger didn’t escape. He was patiently sitting outside the kitchen door waiting to come inside the house to say hello.

Tiger is not a passionate dog. Some times very isolated I wonder whether he likes us. But I feel better now. At least he likes us more than the freedom of being outside the house.

opportunity ?

I’ve been waiting for this call for so long. since, registration? And when the call finally comes I guess my voice on the phone must sounded burst with excitement.  I expressed my interest. Cross finger and hope she rings back.  It’s only contract base but I am finally at the starting position of something I’ve been wanting for a long long time.

THE girl THE bride

One of my girls asked me today to be her bridesmaid. This was the third time I’m being asked (diff girls of course).  I said yes straight, felt very honoured to have such a special role on her special day.

study break

I’ve taken a few days off from work for exam study. Ok rephrase, I’ve taken a few days off to procrastinate, or shall we call it “staycation”.  The weather is so beautiful today and it’s not hot at all. How can you not head out. Spent the morning battling through endless lecture notes and journal articles, so for lunch I decided to have it under the sun.  Mum was home today so we grabbed baguettes from Jean-Claude and subi and sat in the park.  Mum’s lunch was so delicious that she attracted couple of ducks.  And by the end of her baguette the duckies got some comfy with her that they decided to sat around her. Or I shall say “own” her.

And of course I spend the arvo making cold drip and filtered coffee

six days till exam. Shall I panic now?

The market itself is not as big Claremont’s farmer’s market (one of my fav).  But it’s pack with awesome in season produces such as local citrus, white asparagus, goat cheese etc.  We got some bits and pieces for the fridge.  At the back of the market we found HONEYCAKE!

Beside all the local produces, flowers etc.  AND Honeycake too! finally get to try this awesome thing. It was soo delicious; a little caramelised, a little nutty and a little honeysome too.
