Meet Chimi! My New Pet Poodle!


Hi readers… Hope all is well. 🙂

So on Wednesday, dad called and told me that he’ll be bringing home a puppy. My first thought was “We already have 2 dogs. Is that not enough?! We can barely spend time with them and now another one?” Yes, I was a little reluctant to accept this puppy.

When I got home, both the puppy and my dad were not home yet. And I was tired that night, so I went to bed early. The next morning, before I leave the house to college, I went to my dad’s room and there… I saw this cute little fella lying down beside my dad. Looking how adorable she is, how could I say no? Her name is Chimi (her previous owner gave her that name) and she’s 3 months old.

Her previous owner own a farm and is filled with dogs. Poodles to be precise. His dog gave birth many times, and hence, his family grew bigger and bigger. He’s been giving away puppies to his friends, and this time, his dog gave birth to 4 puppies and Chimi was the youngest.

There are so many dogs and it’s hard for him and his family to give full attention to all the dogs. So, when my dad went to visit them, his wife offered Chimi to him.. And that’s how Chimi was added to our family. 🙂

Lake Toba, Indonesia (Day 5 & 6)

We did not book any hotel for the 5th night. Also, on the 5th day, we went to Berastagi.

This is what we had for breakfast — Pancakes with Cheese.

Took a picture with the owner before we left.

We took the boat across. When we reached there, our driver (we hired a driver to fetch us there) took us to a few places along the way.

Lake Toba, Indonesia (Day 1 & 2)

Went to Lake Toba for vacation on 27th May 2011 to 1st June 2011 with family and dad’s friend, Uncle Yao, together with his family. It was really relaxing and I had an enjoyable time there. We did a lot of activities there like cycling around Tuk-tuk town, plucked corn, horse riding, horse carriage riding, played pool, etc… The people there were very friendly and it’s nice staying among them. The place was cooling, not to mention the water was freezing when we bathe. The food were delicious as well. Although the food in some of the restaurants were very salty, but overall, it taste good!!

I took a lot of pictures of the trip, as usual… But this time there’s an additional thing for you enjoy. Guess what?? There’s a video too!! So, you can enjoy seeing the pictures and also enjoy watching the video! This is my 1st time filming and my 1st time editing video, making it into a movie (slideshow). Will post the video below. Don’t forget to leave your comment.

The Greatest Relationship Of All

Many of my friends are currently in a relationship. Well, I’m in a relationship too, and his name is Jesus. And I’m here to share with you about Him. He’s my best friend, my comfort, my provider, my savior, and etc. He’s everything everyone would want, if they know about Him. He never condemn, reject, betray, or even hurt us. You don’t even have to worry about Him cheating on you!! (LOL) And the greatest thing of all is that He’ll show you great miracles, which I don’t think anyone on earth can do that. All we gotta do is accept Him & invite Him into our heart. Continue reading →
