pooh @ Kluang

Back in sunny Malaysia where technology has a meaning...

-(come on lah... together-gether lah) "C'est bizarre..."-

ahpooh has fit in perfectly well with my other pillows and bolsters and pigs. A conversation with Jiawei just after I touched down went like this:

Me: Look, my new bear!
Jw: Nice fur.
Me: I've already given him a name! It's ahpooh(just to add a dash of cheena).
Jw: Oh really?
Me: I named him on top of Eiffel Tower because I felt like it.
Jw: OK. Winnie the pooh. But his name is Winnie! Is it a male or female?
Me: No... His friends call him Pooh! Wait, Christopher calls him Pooh too! Anyways, mine is male.
Jw: No. They call him Winnie... That's his name ma.
Me: Then it would sound weird. "Winnie, come here!" Noooo. It's Pooh!

And the debate continues. I brought ahpooh back to Kluang for a short break. Thank goodness I have a book to refer to which I dug up from amongst the Agatha Christies (since I have nothing to do in very sunny ol' Kluang)...

-"For my little sister who still talks to her toys, Happy 15th Birthday!"-

My thoughtful eldest sister, Susan, got me this book for my 15th birthday. OK, not your average gifts for 15 year olds. Anyways, proof that he is called Pooh:

-Classic-

On the back of the book featured a conversation between Pooh and Christopher Robin.

"Pooh, promise you won't forget about me, ever. Not even when I'm a hundred." Pooh thought for a little. "How old shall I be then?" "Ninety-nine." Pooh nodded. "I promise," he said.
I'm still deciding what my conversation with ahpooh will be like.

Option A:
"How old shall I be then?"
"Seventy-eight."
Pooh thought for a little. "That's easier," he concluded.

Option B:
"Iz der.. howl olde sharl I be zhen?"
"Soixante dix-huit"
"Bizarre!"

Option C
"The honey here tastes weird"
"Of course! It has sugar syrup added."
"Oh, bother!"

Anyways, I just think Kluang is too hot at the moment. Nonetheless, I brought my new friend out to the garden to get some air.
-Bunga Raya+ahpooh-

-What I get when I wake up early-

-A pineapple, seriously-

No, seriously, there really is a pineapple growing in my garden! We get to eat it after what seems like years(actually 6 months). I ate it once and it is superbly sweet and fragrant. Can't wait to harvest this one. heehee. There are also sugarcane at the back but they don't look too pretty.
-The mother nature du jardin a.k.a Mom-

Mom likes it when I say her thumbs are the greenest around. I think gardening is very therapeutic for mom and occasionally, dad. "Your dad doesn't always clean up the grass he cuts!" says mom occasionally.

-Me!-

OK. Anyways, I'm really bored. I'll probably feature what I eat in Kluang next (not what I do because one doesn't do much in Kluang other than climb Gunung Lambak). I wish there was a One Utama, Cineleisure and Sunway Lagoon Themepark here.
