Return of the [Quitter].

I have been having diarrhoea and fever on an off for the past week and its horrible.  I suspected I got the bug from boy boy who had the same symptoms a week prior.   Going to the doctors does not help much as they give the same medication.  Think when I get back to Singapore in March I will go for a full body checkup.

Yes, I'm coming back to Singapore to slave again.  I am running out of funds and starting a business in Thailand is not that cheap actually :P.  The easiest way for me to gain some is to come back to work.  Yes, I could borrow from the banks but I do not want to be in debt and my own investment policy is that  I never will :P.  I rather save some money rather then rush ahead and get myself cash-strapped.  Maybe if we have no kids, we would have taken that path but that's not the case.  So it's a hard decision buy I plan to return to Singapore to work full time for at least another year or 2.

The idea of returning is actually on my mind since last year when I was helping my mum to move.  I still need to spend time researching and sort through my father's Philately collection and sell some of them off.  At first I plan to send all of them back to Thailand but that would involved getting taxed by the customs.  :S  So I need to do it in Singapore.  

Opportunity arises when I talked to one of my old colleagues when she just left our old company.  She mentioned they are still looking for someone and I was a bit interested in getting back in.

Reasons? It's shift work and with a lot of off days.  Which means I can fly back to Thailand once in a while.   This is the major advantage of working there.  Pay is ok.  I would say slightly above average with OT.  

I do have some reservation working there though.  Long hours and certains policies by managment (one of the reasons I quit that time).  In short, it means I am getting shit all over my head again.  It's been more than a year break for me and I guess the kids will miss me this time.  


Home Alone

Yup.  Wife and kids are having a slumber party at her friend’s place so which means I have the house all to myself… well… not really, I still have a Dam with 4 pups and a rooster Smile with tongue out .  They just left an hour ago and I was planning to watch some movies but I guess I will just pass.  Think I will go to sleep early after I finish writing this entry.

The 4 sisters.



Taking care of the puppies are quite a chore actually.  Especially so when they are in week 3.  They are starting to pee and poo everywhere and have some strength to climb around.  I used part of the old broken wooden crib of my girl and fixed a little fence to keep them in.  Their nesting area is just beside my garage and I would not want to worry that when I am parking I might crush one of them.

Wife already decided to keep one of the pups again… Confused smile .  Although I don’t really like the idea but I am kind of attached to them too Smile with tongue out .  Since I am taking a lot of time taking care of them too.  Cindy (my dog’s name) is a good and protective mother. It’s her 2nd batch and so she’s a bit more experienced.  327009_10150572813790762_829165761_8907319_1953863090_oShe would clean up the mess (pee and poo) by licking and eating the contents (even though I try to stop her from doing it).  Every time someone is looking over her brood, she would be on her guard and growl if they are too close to them.  Only Me and my wife could touch her brood.  Well, not my wife if I’m not around, she even got bitten by Cindy once while I was not around ! hehhehe

I guess its because I would pat and look at Cindy in her eyes first every time before I even touch her brood.  She seems to know I am seeking permission and normally she would lower her gaze.  That’s telling me I am allowed to do so.  Another reason I guess is because I am the one who always feeds her Smile with tongue out hehe.     Anyway it will be another month’s time before we give the others away.  We found homes for 2 of them and still looking for 1 more home for the last pup.

PS:  The one we are keeping has a spot of white on her head.   Wife named her Cookie…..
