Don’t be fooled by their silky pelt and big, innocent eyes. Given the chance, these adorable pups will rip the flesh straight from your bone!
I guess people do eat dogs here, but it’s not too common.
It’s a little pricey ($32 SGD) and touristy, but the Singapore Night Safari’s well-designed, well-planned and great for kids.
Such a handsome man! Check out our extensive photoshoot.
Furballs always make me happy.
On my way back from F.A.B. brunch with Jessica this morning, I made some new furry friends.
Tai Mo Shan is no fancy, Hawaii-style volcano. Actually, Chip’s mom has lived nearly her whole life at Tai Mo Shan and never knew it was volcanic in the least.
It’s touristy, but probably the best thing I could do to figure out where the heck I am. $45 gets me 48 hours of hop-off/hop-on (“You’ll be getting some hop-ons”) privileges. Plug in the headphones they give you, choose your language, and learn stuff like: • Hong Kong has more skyscrapers than any other city …
This time tomorrow I’ll be on a plan to Detroit, then on to HK. It’s true, there are nonstop flights to Hong Kong from Detroit, of all places. Probably the doing of some flight-planner guy for Delta Airlines who lives in Detroit was in love with a gal who lives in Hong Kong. I say …
Berlin’s gonna miss me. (Or maybe he just wants to go for a walk.)
Look at him: But Berlin! Look at how much fun we had on the train ride up!
This time tomorrow we’ll be checkin’ out of ol’ Oceanside Beach Resort. Actually, they shouldn’t call it a “resort”. More like Oceanside Basic Motel. No more scallops salad and tuna tartar from the Gig Shack on Main St.: No more Beach Berlin:
We packed up Berlin (there on Lea’s back), hopped on a train and headed to Montauk for a long weekend.
This was what I opened my eyes to this morning: Look at this crazy rat! His name’s Berlin, but I call him “Berle”. Kind of an old-man name for a surprisingly-old teddy bear dog. (Or, if you prefer, lhasa Apso.)
I love visiting Evelyn because she goes out and gets BREAKFAST TACOS from Wheatsville Co-op. After breakfast we finally occupied (well, a-third-occupied) unit #2081 with everything I own. Then came back home to this sight:
Look at this big lug! Here we are trying to watch Repo Man last night. Gonna miss him and his big, boney elbows.
Parents get back from Minnesota tonight. It’s been a sometimes-relaxing 3.5 days here in Central Texas.
