He is a mid-sized adult male dog who looks like a Japanese Shiba and mongrel cross. He is a little hard of hearing and his eye sight isn’t tip top, but otherwise he is in perfect health ( The vet has given him a clean bill of health)
Wangwang is a gentle soul who loves people ( and doggy treats!) and would make a perfect companion. Contact Fiona at HP 97456657 or firstname.lastname@example.org (

Sorry about the horrid rhyming.. I’ve yet to shake off the melatonin stupor.. Apples!! Yes, this is our latest community project for www.projectkyrie.com Last week, Nicholas ( sweetest sweetheart this side of the east and he cooks too! ) asked us if we are keen to participate in a soup kitchen programme, where they feed 200+ needy folks twice per mth. They’ve already found someone to provide the food, so we thought apples may be a good addition to a well-rounded meal. Off I went to the wholesale market and loaded 2 cartons of these juicy babies into the slime-green slug mobile..
The people who manage Projectkyrie are mainly Catholics, but they truly embrace diversity.. The needy folks who benefit from this food programme are from all religions, race and creed. There is no discrmination whatsoever. We like !
Only 3 more days to National Day… I’ve always appreciated the peace in Singapore, so let’s take it 1 step further, and truly celebrate diversity too!

The good people from Zurina Bryant Photography studio just sent us these lovely pics.. The “lovely” would refer to Zurina of course.. Check out how resplendant she looked in that pink dress!
Check out our wane ( and sweaty..) expressions.. we had to lug the gawd-heavy slug wares up and down 2 flights of stairs which were cobbled and uneven.. Yup, no elevators at Oldschool.. But it was all worth it !!
Well, Joe slug and I DID turn out in pink actually. Joe claimed that the argyle print on his polo T is pink…. and I was wearing my electric pink sneakers..
Glam people in pink ! quite “Tatler” we thought.. Erm.. is that a lady in a B&W polka-dotted frock? Wrong party you are at, darrrling… ( unless of course you’ve got pink accessories that we can’t see… Eh eh, you naughty slugphiles…. stop all that imagining ok? I am referring to pink sneakers like mine, of course ! wahahahah !! I kill me ! )
These are sooo delicious, if I say so myself… Sweet Cherry tomatoes marinated with seasoned olive oil and tossed with herbed crumbly feta cheese and stuffed olives. Yums !
