Lucy Says Hi!

Hi everyone,

Lucy and I are now enjoying the sun and the sand on beautiful Phuket in Thailand. This is my third day here and I'm absolutely loving it. It has not been easy to bring Lucy with me everywhere due to the travel restrictions but my company has been so kind to always make special arrangements for Lucy. Now that's what I call employee engagement!

So off we go to explore the island. Have a great day yourself!

World Travelers - Lucy & I

Sorry folks. I haven't posted for a while as I've been scooting all over the world with my cat, Lucy. My business requires me to be constantly on the go and I just haven't had the time to blog.

I'm now on the beautiful island of Maldives. Will try to say hi wherever I am. Oh, and Lucy says hi (meow meow) too!

Cannes Here We Come!

Lucy and I are going on another vacation in Cannes.

It's great to be on a roadtrip with her and I'm extremely excited at it!

Have a great weekend ahead!

Poor Lucy is sick again. I have been jetting around the country quite often so my sis is looking after Lucy while I'm not around.

But I'm going to spend these few days with her and make sure she gets well first.

Get well soon, Lucy!

Get A Goal, Start Blogging

If you having picked up blogging yet, what’s stopping you? Basically I started blogging quite recently only. I just wanted to share my own personal experiences as well as tell others about my beloved cat, Lucy. Sometimes, having a goal to achieve can eradicate any inertia in doing something. For me, it was sharing about my cat and my life with other cat lovers. For you, it might be talking about a hobby or venting your frustrations at something.

Whatever it is, have a goal at the start and then you’ll find it easier to kickstart your blogging days. And don’t worry if you run out of stam along the way. Just take a short break and come back refreshed!

By the way, Blogsessive is having a nice domain giveaway for bloggers who help spread the word on blogging so get over there for all the details.

Will Lucy get her premium cat food? Stay tuned!

Love Is The Answer

I always get really furious when I hear of people abusing their cats.

Cats are such gentle creatures and so very cute. But many people don't realize that looking after a pet is much harder than they think. You need to have a lot of patience and love and you need to treat them like they are a part of your family.

Neglecting your cat is bad enough but ill-treating him or her is downright despicable.

If you don't feel you have the time to care for your cat, give him or her up to someone who really cares and don't take out your frustrations on the poor creatures.

Love them and they will love you.

Even though I may be very busy, I would never neglect Lucy and she knows that. So if you want a pet, be sure to pour out all you love or else don't have one.

Fat Queen

After coming back from my holiday, Queen Lucy definitely seems fatter.

Perhaps it has been the long hours of travel where she just sits curled up next to me. I've been carrying her a lot as well. I guess I'm pampering the old dame too much.

Back home, she's curled up again for a nap (again!)

Oh my, I do think she needs to exercise more or she's going to burst her little throne!

End Ageing?

I recently read a post by Scott Wainer from W Revenue which talked about living well, indefinitely. I would support his view that there needs to be more research into stopping the ageing process, though I am not optimistic that a solution will ever be found.

As science progresses, there will be more questions asked about our life expectancy. We have made some progress in this area but the journey is still long and torrid. But for those that persevere, I think we can expect some rewards.

And of course, I'd want research done for animals as well so that dear Lucy can benefit too!

Lucy Loves Your Website!

I Hate Your Website is turning his hatred into love by holding an Entrecard contest to give away 1000 ECs. He just needs you to link to his blog. You have until 25th March to do so before he picks a lucky winner. See his contest page here.

Well, that's even easier than feeding Lucy!

Post On Fire Contest

Post On Fire is a social bookmarking and networking site for bloggers and blog readers. It allows them to find and share new blog spots with others, as well as vote for the popular ones. I like their simple interface which is easy on the eyes. The name of their site is also catchy, though the concept of such sites is nothing new.

While they are relatively new, they have already gotten hundreds of users which is a good start and hopefully they can build on that in the months to come.

By the way, they are having a contest which you may want to check out while I go and check on Lucy.

$50 (US), 2500 EntreCard Credits and a 1-year text link
200 EntreCard Credits and a month of advertising (Monthly)
200 EntreCard Credits and a week of advertising (Weekly)

This is the link to the contest page. I hope I win! The cash will come in handy!

Google Legolicious!

Christopher of iMod noticed something I think many of us noticed when we were doing our usual web surfing - the current catchy new Google logo - made from lego!

In his article, Christopher mentioned some interesting occurences which made lego an ideal match for Google's new logo. I also didn't know that there is actually a lego store in Bellevue. I wonder if the shop is made of lego itself =)

Anyways, Christopher is also having another of his Entrecard contests so you can pop over if you're interested.

Hmm, I wonder if I can make a lego Lucy?

Any Food Recommendations?

I was wondering if any of you have some recommendations for cat food which is nutritious and not too pricey. I am planning a new diet for Lucy.


Yay! Another Giveaway!

Yay! There are more Entrecard credits to be given away. This time, iMod is giving away 350 of them. You must do a few things before you can get the credits, such as blog about his blog and link to various posts. You can find the rest of the contest details here.

iMod is run by this dashing guy Christopher who is a online marketer and blogger. I like his post on the effects of caffeine because I'm absolutely addicted to coffee. It scares me a little so I'm cutting down my consumption by a little (well, it is hard to totally not drink it=).

But don't worry, little Lucy doesn't get a sip of my coffee so she's safe. Lucky for you, Lucy!

More Entrecard Credits To Advertise!

I stumbled upon a contest where you can get 500 Entrecard credits for free. It is by Affiliate Lounge, which has some fabulous information on affiliate programs and more.
I liked this post about the possibility of having Entrecard on Facebook. Well, check out his site while I go and feed Lucy!

My Sunshine

My sunshine is the smile on the faces of people I meet everyday. They are like rays from the sun which warm my heart. They can be loved ones, neighbors, colleagues or even strangers. And of course, Lucy as well (Yes, she does smile!)

You can never imagine the power of a simple smile even on a cold, winter's day.

Next time you meet someone, give them a smile, it doesn't cost you anything!

Lucy Is Sick

Poor Lucy is sick so I took a day off work to take her to Dr Simons. Luckily it is just a minor infection.

Hopefully she will be better tomorrow.

Contest To Help Get Noticed

I was out surfing for my blog design and hey, I stumbled upon another contest - this time giving away entrecard credits. According to my sister Jonah, this is free advertising for bloggers.

I really need to get this new blog noticed so this would suit me. But Jonah says that the top blogs all require many credits to advertise so this contest by Belolats dot com is just right for me. She's giving 500 credits weekly and some link love to the winner as well. If I win, I'd probably sign up for an entrecard account.

Got to feed dear Lucy now. See you!

I Want A New Design!

I've got a wonderful header from Linda for this blog but I'm still not satisfied with the layout. I know, don't these default designs just irk you? And some of my friends have been telling me to move to Wordpress. So I was doing a bit of surfing for a new blog layout and then I came across this contest by Shera to give away two, yes two, custom blog designs!

I went to Shera's store, Sweet ‘n Simple Design, and wow... I love the Just Monkeyin' Around design! Ok, maybe that's just because I love animals (cats, dogs, monkeys...) but oh well, I just love it. And I'd love a custom design either for this blog or for a new Wordpress blog (yes, maybe that'll help me make up my mind). So wish me luck and hope I win!

Here's her contest post!

Macy Gives Birth

Some great news today! My cousin Jennifer's darling, Macy, gave birth to two cute kittens today. I hope I can get photos of them to post soon.

Work In Progress

This blog is still a work in progress due to the enormous amount of work I have but I'll try to do updates once in a while. Do send me your meowy stories if you have them.


Welcome to my new blog, Meowlicious!
