Happy Birthday!

Yesterday was Vincent and Bella's 1st birthday...

It was a happy birthday, so much love around *wiggles*

Selby gave us a very delicious lunch, then her friend gave us a present... 1,2 kgs of crackers! Thank you, auntie Rosa!

Grandma's friend also was so nice, she made a special call for wishing a wonderful birthday to us.

Today, in order to celebrate my kids' birthday, Selby is sharing the love by distributing lunch boxes to some neighbors who love dogs too.

So glad to find out this morning that Bella is back healthy again.

Sharing a couple of Bella's video.

Today's lunch, she finished one bowl of chicken and brown rice.

Bella, the little shy girl would like to say "Thank you" to all of you who have been sending good vibes, wishes and crossing your paws for her healthiness :) Oh and also to Checkers' mom who had put Bella's name into the St. Francis' bowl and lighted it up right away and smoked well wishes to the heavens, thank you!

Bella is sick

This afternoon, Bella has been throwing up for more than 10 times in less than 2 hours. So, Selby brought Bella directly to the Vet. The Vet said that Bella should do "fasting" for 24 hours to let the "poison" out from her stomach and it's OK if she wants to chew some grass in the garden.

Bella looks so tired and scared.

Get well soon, dear Bella! We love you!

An Award and the Mom Meme

Hello.... this is Adele *wiggles*

I'm so happy that Sedona passed us an award called Kreativ Blogger Award

Thank you so much, Sedona! It's very thoughtful of you!

The rules for this award are:

* Give thanks and link back to the one who sent you the award.
* Post the logo on your blog.
* List seven things about yourself that others might find interesting.
* Pass the award on to seven other kreativ bloggers.

Well, I think I want to share about 7 things of my beloved children, Vincent & Bella:

1. My boy - Vincent, is named after the famous Dutch post-impressionist artist named Vincent van Gogh. When I was pregnant, Selby loved to listen to the "Starry, starry night" which is a song of comparison lyrics to Van Gogh's actual life. It's a beautiful song.

2. As for Bella, her name was a suggestion from Selby's ex-colleague. We discussed it together with Selby's mom and she really loves with the name because not only it sounds sweet and cute but also, it means beautiful in Italian and besides, her friend's daughter name is also Bella, and she is beautiful and famous actress in Indonesia.

3. People always say that they share and give their love for their kids equally but honestly, I give more my attention to Vincent (Deep down in our heart, don't we all have our favorite one?). It started when Vincent was a "toddler", he was so quite and shy, most of the time just observing, totally not active nor energetic like Bella. Whenever, there are guests in our house, they always prefer Bella to Vincent (even until today), probably because Bella looks more attractive since she is tiny, cute and also has those huge ears (I still wonder where does she got those ears from, not from me, I think! BOL). As a mother, I feel it's my responsibility to teach Vincent to be more lively. I also notice that Selby has more feeling toward Vincent because he is just the sweetest boy with a very soft kind heart.

4. I think my hard work to make Vincent lively has been paid off, he becomes a very energetic boy and at the other hand, Bella becomes a shy and timid girl especially to strangers but she can be pretty loud to Vincent and me, especially when she gets jealous.

5. Bella loves to hide under the TV rack or behind the curtain. It's quite difficult to call her out from her hiding places. Yeah... She is an introvert girl now.

6. I understand that Selby and her mom have been trying their best to train my kids to do their "business" outside the house and they are now already 8 months old (anyone knows how old it is in human age?) but sometimes, they still do it inside the house. Well, more precisely is Bella the one who likes to do her "business" inside the house. Actually, the door house is always open so we walk- in inside to the house and walk-out to the garden easily. Any suggestion or advice how to teach my kids?

7. Although the daddy of my kids - Bourbon, has left me (blame the owner!) for good and already has a new wife named Vodka, but I'm so proud as a single mother. Vincent and Bella are the most precious ones in my life. I feel so blessed for their love especially when they lick me on my ears and eyes. Their love have made me stronger and stronger each day.

I'm passing this award to:
- Nala
- Frankie
- Brind'Amour
- Checkers
- Brownie
- Twix
- Suzuki

Then, there's the "Mom Meme" that has been passed from Jen - the mom of Mr. Tuck to me, eh... no, it's actually for Selby because we consider her as our mom, but also can be considered as my sister or the aunt of Vincent and Bella *wags* Thank you, Jen!

So the rules of the meme are:
“Either (1) post 7 facts about yourself AND photos OR (2) post 10 facts about yourself with no photos, OR (3) post a childhood picture of yourself.”

We choose the (3)
Selby with Linda.

Note: Linda was Selby's second dog. Her first dog was Meenah, you all can see the picture of Meenah at the side bar.

A Monkey Dancer

Last night when Selby came home, she told us that she saw 4 men and a little monkey dressed with pink outfit on the street.

They stopped directly across where Selby was standing and started to let the monkey to do a performance. 2 men were in charge to play "music" ( hitting small drums), 1 man handled the monkey by pulling and pushing with a long chain then the other man started to walk around with a bowl in order to beg for some money from the people who were watching.

The performance called “Doger monyet” and has been performed more than 100 years in West Java, Indonesia.

Doger (in Sundanese - West Java language) means a female dancer; usually in a people's theater, and Monyet (in Indonesian language) means monkey.

Selby said that when she watched the performance, it really broke her heart because she felt so sorry for this little monkey that must work for these 4 healthy men.

Selby donated some money but she had a feeling that the monkey might not receive her "right" of the income share. Just imagine, how much money actually would be earned everyday from this kind of performance, not much that's for sure and need to be divided to those 4 men for their living.

Good thing, Selby saw bananas at a street vendor, so she gave a banana to the monkey.

Look how the little monkey enjoyed her banana. The monkey must be feeling very hungry *sobs*

Selby wished that she could give the little monkey a hug or at least a pat on her head.

Listening to Selby's story about the monkey, we all hope the best for the little monkey and also for all those monkeys out there that are performing "Doger Monyet" for their lives.

Menet - the cute guest

Let us introduce you all with our cute guest on our roof garden...


We don't know her real name because she has never introduced herself thus grandma always called her as "Menet", because according to grandma, she looks exactly like her grandpa's cat named Menet.

And... thinking about the age of grandma's grandpa, we wonder how old he is going to be and also his cat if they are still alive (fyi, our grandma is already over 70 years old), BOL

Here are some activities of Menet on our roof...

Menet doesn't come to our house daily. Well, we guess it depends on her mood *wiggles*
