Teddy is back

Since Teddy was missing on the 11 Jan 16, I had been searching for him high and low. Finally I gave up and I thought he was lost forever.

But last Saturday, 30 Jan, my friend asked if the pictures she saw on facebook was Teddy. So I checked on the girl's facebook. True enough, it's Teddy and I went to check on a nearby vet clinic since she mentioned that she had sent the injured dog there.

The vet acknowledged that there was an injured crippled dog which was sent over by a girl. I told her to care for Teddy till my girl came back for Chinese New Year.

My concerned friend sent a private message to the girl and after some time, she called me after she had talked to my friend. She related her story that she pitied the dog as it was bleeding and she believed that it was a hit and run case.

Yesterday, my girl reached home and I urged her to look out for Teddy. And also to settle whatever payment that needed to be done.

After a short while, my girl with her sisters came to the shop and persuaded her dad to let her keep Teddy. Her dad disliked Teddy as he had bitten him before. Initially when I told him that I had found Teddy, he was not concern.

Her dad used to mention that he was kind to animals. But what about this case? Teddy has been with us for seven years. We couldn't simply ignore him though it was its own fault in escaping through the opened gate.

I was glad when he finally announced that Teddy is coming back.

All in a day

This morning, I didn't cook for my boy and girl. Why? Cos the boy wanted me to get to the shop earlier as he wanted to get his hair cut for the new year. 

I just managed to fry a few pieces of bread dipped in beaten eggs with brown sugar. So off the boy went to shop first while the girl went out for badminton.

Without wasting time, I quickly made some 'bak kean' for the new year. 

Just 8 and three more longer ones
Keep them in the freezer.
 

But I needed to prepare my own lunch. Thus I fried some rice and tapau to the shop. I had some leftovers fried chicken so I steamed them.

After my bath, I quickly hanged clothes and zoomed I drove to the shop. I was late 15 minutes. 

Upon reaching the shop, I quickly had my lunch. Otherwise, I would never have the time to do so.

I noticed that there was a plastic bottle of pineapple tarts for me.
Yummy! My favorite cookie.
Thanks to my boss's friend.

After a short while, a salesperson came with a delicious butter cake. It's for the shop. So I cut it and distributed to all my staff and workers.

I gave some to one of my favorite little customer too.


After all the excitement, the boss asked me to prepare ang pow for his staff.
I had calculated the amount beforehand.
So I just needed to get the boss's approval 
and started getting those fat ang pows ready.

Given to the staff and they were happy.
I made sure that they thanked the boss
and said some well wishes.


Apart from the above, I also received a full moon gift which had the salted chicken, eggs and the ang ku. I myself ate the 2 ang ku and 2 red eggs.

Kept the salted chicken for dinner. Didn't go out for our usual Friday dine-out as it was raining heavily.

Tomorrow, my other kids will be back for the new year. I still need to work tomorrow but I won't be at the shop on Sunday which is the eve of the Chinese New Year.


Gongxi Fa Cai, my dearest blogger friends. 
May the new year brings you lots of happiness, luck and love.....

A new gate


We finally got our new gate on the 5 Jan 2016.

A lot of preparation was done before the new gate was fixed. 

First and foremost, the boss paid a deposit of RM50 at the Homez fair recently. It's on the 29 Nov 2015. After a month, they came to tear down our old gate which had not been functioning automatically for a couple of years. We had to push the gate and it was tough as the gate was real heavy. But luckily, we had a smaller manual gate.

In fact, the boss had once paid a deposit and it didn't materialize. This time, when he did it again, we were still skeptical about it. 

Finally, our dream came true and the boss had to pay a hefty sum of RM8320 just for the gate itself. Not sure of the other payment yet.

So nice to have a new gate. The old one was fixed in year 2000 when we first shifted in. Imagine the gate had been around for 16 years..
