A Gift From Japan!

Some of u had asked about the weather here in Singapaw, when i posted on how to cool down when it gets hot. i guess most of u whom live across the ocean r starting to experience the winter... but here in Singapaw, the weather is kinda freaky. we've been getting rain more often, but temperatures dun go below 23C° (or 75F°). but when it doesn't rain, it can be really hot. n it can be bright & sunny a minute, n raining the next. we dun experience winter in Singapaw, as with most Southeast Asian countries, it's summer all year, with June & July being the hottest months!

last sat, i sent Jiejie to the post office to pick-up the parcel sent by my Japanese friend, ume-tyan!
i got Jiejie to open the parcel for me, as it was wrapped securely with masking tape. Jiejie had to wrestle with the parcel a little... finally she got it opened. look what's in there!

there was a paw-written card by ume-tyan.

look at what's inside the Trick or Treat Box! it's a Jack O' Lantern. i think i can smell something in there... hmmm... will it be a trick or treat?

it's a treat! or rather lotsa treats!!! stuffed inside the Jack O' Lantern was a pkt of candies!

Jack O' Lantern & me...

wrapped inside the other pkg was a bootiful pc of cloth of the famous Mt Fuji. Jiejie hasn't tot of how to use the cloth yet, perhaps u doggins & hamsterriers can give her some ideas?

Jiejie had left Jack O'Lantern with the candies inside the study room, so dat they're within reach when she's working on the lappie.

a closer look at the candies...

hmmm... i wonder if this feels the same as a kong... dun worry ume-tyan, i didn't kill Jack O'Lantern, it now sits safely on the table. a BIG thank you to u & your hooman for the wonderful gifts! ARIGATO!!!!

Ume, you handle that Jack-O-Lantern like a World Cup star! Great foot-work, and the muzzle-assist isn't bad either!

Hey, Ume Girl!

Looks like Ume Tyan knows what you like. Was that a "I'm so glad you're my friend" prezzie, or for another reason?

Goober love,
