Sherry & Sox - Sheredyn L.

My eldest niece, Sherry has grown from a chubby little gal to a beautiful young lady. She has got the best features from both parents (Aussie dad & Chinese mom) that made her look so refreshing and exotic at the same time.

For a young lady of 12 yrs old, she is tall (yup, already taller than me mind you) and has yet to reach her fullest potential. Back in Malaysia, Sherry would be a possible candidate for Miss Malaysia - truly, no joke! Like all teenager, Sherry loves everything pretty, nice and very into discovering the secrets of make up. By the way she's experimenting with them, I would certainly be taking lessons from her soon.

Sherry, from what I heard, is not only smart in school, she's also very into sports. two years ago, she represented her school in the erobics dance competition and now very much into swimming and netball. Go Sherry! I was also a netballer myself having represented my school as well as distric in many competitions when I was young. Sherry too loves animals and Renee, her mom, has recently bought a puppy for the kids to look after but Sherry claimed it to be hers.. hmmm, she does possess that special bond that enable someone to have a close understanding with an animal. I know this because I've been observing her with the pup. She truly cared about it and was secretly feeding it pieces of meat from the lunch spread when the rest of the kids were busy playing. Very much like me.... If she still continue to have strong interest in animals, I'm tempted to teach her about dog handling in the show ring, something that was taught to me by my close friend, Cris. With her strong confidance coupled with determination to win, she can easily become a good handler in a couple of months. Oh well, this is just something that I thought would be good for her but I have not ask for her opinion. Maybe I should just relax and observe her more before I mention about it to her... hmmm

I managed to snap a few photos of Sherry and Sox, a puppy of mixed breed (Cavelier King Charles + Tibetan Spaniel, two breeds that I love to have as they are simply adorable) a few days ago. I think that they are great shots and would like you to have a look as well and judge for yourselves.

To me, both of them look simply gorgeous.... what do you think?

Wondering About The Kids

I've been away from my "kids" since early March and is due to be back home only on 3rd June. There was never a moment that I did not think of them, wondering how they are getting on, are they eating well and most importantly, are they missing me as much as I'm missing them?

My friends, Cris & Ying, whom I considered like my own sisters once wrote to me that the "kids" were missing me so much that they had to take one of my old shirts for them to sniff and lie on. That message really broke my heart and I ended up crying for a good 2 hours.

The other day, my little brother, Raymond, tried to kid me by saying that Ying had to shave Phoebe's lustrous coat due to some problem and that did jolted me for about 2 seconds until I realised that he was only pulling my legs. You see, I know Ying too well. She is a younger version of me. Both of us love animals to death - yes, I really mean that. If we have to sacrifice our lives just to save an animal, we would without much hesitation. So I know deep down that Ying would never, ever shave Phoebe unless it's to save her life. And if Ying were to face with such dilemma, she would have called me 1st to discuss about it. So nice try lil bro.

Here in Melbourne, I've been flipping through the pages of my "kids" album nearly everyday. I've also been known to have showed them to absolute strangers whom I met during my walks with Ebony. My husband was commenting to his sisters that on one occasion, he had to wait for me for about an hour sitting on a swing at the playground while I chatted with a few dog owners whom I ended up teaching how to massage their dogs. He was just commenting that being opposites, me the extrovert and him the introvert, we complement each other. I seek companionship and he normally seek solitude so that he could work on his computer. When I cook, he'll wash and when he does the laundry, I'll fold the clothes. When he needs solitude, I sought out the "kids" for a serious play session. It's like Ying and Yang. We need each other to achieve a complete cosmic balance.

My husband knows that I will only be truly happy if I'm surrounded by animals. Once I even told him that my only regret in life was not to be born in a farm. He even commented that I'm more at ease when I'm with animals and will turn very guarded of my actions when I'm with people. That was why he always try his best to make me very happy whenever I'm in Melbourne by taking me for visits to the zoo, animal sanctuaries, dog shows etc. He truly understand my need to interact with animals and for that I love him dearly.

He's my husband and also my best friend whom I can share my dreams, pour my heart out when I'm sad and calm me down when I'm angry. Truly, a dream come true.

As for those who do not know me well, the "kids" that I have been referring to are Ah Boy, my 16 yrs old cat, Sirius Black, my 3 1/2 yrs old cat and Ms. Phoebe Cates, my 2 1/2 years old dog. These are my kids whom have kept me very happy during those lonely days since my husband took up a job in Melbourne.

To them, I owe my sanity and would be very forever grateful as they have always been by my side through good and bad times. They are my very own 3 Musketeers and I miss them so much I'm begining to have dreams about them when I sleep. In less than 3 weeks I'll be home to be with my "kids" but it will also be the begining of a heart breaking long distance love between me and my husband. I long for the day when all of us can live happily under one roof. One thing for sure, I wont stop dreaming for that happy ending.
