My Dog Died Today

“You never know what you got til it’s gone.”

After suffering from cancer for over 4 years, my dog, Py, has finally found peace. Towards the end, Py was in a lot of pain. He became incontinent, shivered a lot and had random convulsions. He lost all appetite, even if you put the most delicious treat in front of him, he wasn’t interested. It was hard but I knew deep inside it was time for him to go.

Euthanasia is the kindest act that one can do for a dying dog in a lot of pain and so I had Py receive it today. 2 jabs and that was it. I was crying like a bitch for several days. The realization that Py can no longer make it far is when I noticed he could not stand up properly 4 days ago. He was wobbling about and had trouble lifting his head up to look at me. I was so heartbroken.

At first, Mom didn’t agree to euthanasia. Eventually she did, but she said her goodbyes in the morning and went to work, right before Dad, Vivian and I took Py to see Dr Pava at 10.30am. He administered 2 shots, first which was the tranquilizer and two, the euthanasia. It was so quick. Once Py was jabbed with it, he immediately stopped breathing. He found peace at last.

I feel so regretful to not have spend more time playing with Py. Giving him treats. Rubbing his forehead more often and longer. Giving him healthier, quality meals. As a result, I only have this much memories of Py.

Hennessy Artistry Penang 2014 Spice Arena Announcement

It’s back!

Last year, it was amazing! I had so much fun with 24Herbs, Andy Murphy, and the very pretty Julie Woon as emcee.

This year, it’s all the same. Same time, same place. Saturday, 17 May 2014. The acts are :

Magic Power. A group of Taiwanese Mandopop band.

DJ Brooklyn. The Australian EDM DJ.

Imma *Bleep* You Up (IMBYU). A group of Malaysian DJs.

Paperplane Pursuit. A Malaysian pop band.

Other than hard pumping beats, you can be sure of 2 other solid things. One, free flow of Hennessy! Woo hoo! Two, really, really hot chics! It’s crazy but only at a super clubbing event such as Hennessy will you see all the hot girls of Penang come out and play.

Here’s how you can get passes. One, buy 1 bottle of Hennessy and get 2 passes. Buy 2 bottles and you get 5 passes. Or, you could try your luck in trying to win passes from Hennessy’s Facebook page.

The Day Andy Tai Married Ann Marie

Congratulations Andy! After 9 long years of being together, you finally tied the knot.

The affair took up the entire weekend. The dinner was held in E&O on a Saturday night whereas the ceremony was held the next morning. I know Andy would have preferred it to be done in a more practical sequence but he had to satisfy the whims and fancies of his elders.

06.34 pm – Arrival at E&O’s ballroom and immediately noticed Andy’s unacceptably over-photoshopped studio portraits. Haha.

The wedding shots printed into 3 books.

Club Asahi Miami 2013 Soju Room Penang

For the first time ever in Penang, Asahi Malaysia held Club Asahi Miami 2013 in Soju Room Penang. The purpose was to bring the feel and atmosphere of the well known Miami parties to Penang, Malaysia.

It’s cool that Asahi Malaysia even made the effort to decorate the entrance into Soju Room with a Hummer.

09.34 pm – The brand manager for Asahi Malaysia, Calvin Ho, began talking about himself and the goal of bringing the Asahi party to Penang to the media group where more than half consisted of bloggers from Penang and KL. It’s amazing how far bloggers have come to being included as part of publicity for all sorts of launch events all over Malaysia.

The beautiful girls on stage for patrons to take photos with.

We just helped ourselves to the girls.

OMG! OMG! She’s touching my shouldeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer! 😳
