Jed, Gem and Jo @ Botanic Gardens 13th Feb 2011 Sunday

It took us ages to leave the house on a bright cheery sunday afternoon. But when we did, it was a gorgeous and relaxing day out with 2 of my best buds: Gem and Jed. :)
It's Jed's first time walking such a long distance, so we had to be prepared to carry him home but the power packed mini pin was a good sport all the way there and back. The only times when we had to tend to him was when we had to run across the pedestrian crossing because the tar road was too hot in the midday sun and he was hopping and kicking his feet in the air because it was scorching his uncallused paw pads (since he's at home most of the time), and when we used our ice water to cool his ears down (which cools him down).
We took a walk from home all the way to the Botanic Gardens where we sat down to take a break and recharge before heading for dinner and back home.

Jed ever so often gets mistaken as a chihuahua. Meh. But at least the commenting passersby always exclaim that he's so cute. Ah, but of course. :)




Hopefully boy and dog had a good time out. By the time we left, it was 7pm, ended dinner at close to 9pm, and got home close to 10pm. We had a Vietnam moment during dinner when we had to sit by the roadside with our tapao-ed dinner since eateries don't welcome pets on their premises. But we had a good time all in all. My polar watch also said that i burnt some good fatty calories. Yay.

any day but not today said...

v-day is always so sad to me. i dont see why people want to celebrate my sorrow.

sorry to hear that you're sad on a day that celebrates romance. to each their own journey... maybe you could refrain from putting that much importance on a day like this, it sure gets depressing when things aren't as romantic as people think it should be. anyway, love shouldn't only be celebrated on this day, yes? :)

Love in the time of heart break said...

when there is only sad love to 'celebrate', every day is just plain depressing. I think love is overly romantised in our world. In the olden days, there must be many who lived and died not knowing this 4 letter word

I think love is more than just Valentine's Day? More also than just having a "date" to spend with...? There is more to life than what the media is portraying...perhaps you have dreams or little dreams that you wish to fulfill, like pursuing further studies...?

a season for everything said...

when u are determined to not place emphasis on it, the more u notice couples on the streets.indeed, after tat terrible day, i went to study. I placed my focus on my ever challenging studies. it is all i want to think about for now. i cant and shud not focus too much on what i didnt have. it is just that special occasions seem to impact me differently.

I love the photos of your minpin. It seems like she really enjoyed her day at the park.
