Waiting for the Green Light

Is my Hong Kong trip with my mum still on or what? I’m bored shitless waiting at home for something exciting to chance upon my doorstep (which is wrong for me to think so) but I can’t leave now since I’m booked on the 8th and 11th of Aug for my Convocation. Yep, I’m graduating! Hoorah! *throws around confetti*

But ever since mum read about typhoons and storms in the papers, the date has been pushed further and further. So I have no idea if I’m still going somewhere or nowhere.

On the other hand, I’ve been learning to drive again. I got my driver’s license since four years ago and I haven’t got a chance to sit behind the wheel and go for a spin yet. So I’ve been doing my practice rounds in my neighbourhood. So far, no fatalities and dents yet but dad still insists that I drive on the left lane to stop hogging the fast lane. I’ve got honked twice by other drivers, once because I wasn’t accustomed to checking my side view mirror before I cut into another lane and the other because I was considered a tad slow by the driver behind me. AND I WAS ON THE LEFT LANE! I wasn’t even crawling at the speed of twenty but a forty! Drive the right lane if I’m too slow for you la, bugger! Yeah yeah, stereotype me la.

Oh hai! It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything worth blogging about besides pictures of food. That’s because I’ve been bumming at home.

Yeap! Lazying. Idling. Bumming. Since completing my studies. I figured that I needed a short ‘semester’ of break since the whirlwind romance of love and hate with my final year project.

I’m not going to blog about waking up, brushing my teeth and having breakfast with multiple LOLs, but I’ll tell you about the incident this evening when I was walking my dog.

I walk my dog on almost every evening around my neighbourhood, armed with the Pooper Scooper and the Very Large Stick, the former for cleaning up after my dog and the latter for warding off stray or unleashed dogs. Very Large Stick is helpful for shooing off small or medium sized dogs, but not large dogs like the Alsation or a Rottweiler.

As I make my rounds, I observe and note which neighbours own dogs and if their gates are locked. If the gates aren’t locked, I try to check if the dogs are leashed so I don’t have to wave Very Large Stick around to fend off unwanted attention towards my dog.

So today turned out to be one of those days when I didn’t feel like clutching Very Large Stick, Pooper Scooper and being dragged on the leash by Hailey. I’ll admit that I feel silly carrying Very Large Stick around. It’s not a pretty sight watching a girl being yanked by a dog while she’s shoving her dog’s poop into the drain with a cane between her knees. Continue reading
