Sunday Stickies is a column where we reflect on the past week and pen those thoughts down on sticky pads. Expect notes to ourselves and others, advice, reminders for the week ahead, quotes, and anything random actually.
Happy Father's Day, pops! We love you for being the first macho man of our lives!
And... we are on a roll. This has been another successful and productive week for us. We decided that we both needed to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. And just like that, we packed our bags and went away to somewhere quiet to plan for the second half of 2016. The second half of the year always excites us greatly because Christmas is part of the plan. Woohoo, we can't wait for Christmas already!
We are thankful for this opportunity to rest, relax, plan and brainstorm without much distractions from the outside world. As a result, we were extremely productive and we accomplished a lot within 3 days. Thank God for the many ideas that He had given us, and we can't wait to get started on our new plans! We can do this. Let's go!
Min: Thanks to Jia, I finally took the plunge and went to a dog adoption drive today. I have been on an emotional roller coaster ride for some time now because I am not sure if I am ready for a new dog. But I really want a doggy companion. Sigh, indecisiveness always get the better of me. When I got to the adoption drive, I was greeted with the familiar scent of freshly shampooed dogs, happy tails and wide doggy grins. I was in a doggy wonderland.
I love Mongrels and I absolutely adore black dogs. My beloved Junior was a black Mongrel and he had the best doggy temperament ever. I will never understand why people would shun black dogs or stray dogs even. A black dog/Mongrel is just like any other dog; loyal, faithful and the best damn thing in the world. My heart aches for black dogs and Mongrels that get left behind in dog shelters just because of their colour and breed. If I could, I would save them all and we would all live happily ever after.
Would you give one of these dogs a chance to be your best friend? :')
Jia: This week was a strange one. It felt really tiring and relaxing at the same time with a whole lot of activities going on throughout the seven days. From our brainstorming sessions and retreat for work to indulging in awesome food and beer to waking up at unearthly hours for UEFA Euro matches combined with a whole lot of going-out, I am very pooped but in great spirits!
Right at this instance while I am typing this, I am still dying from cuteness overload. Min and I (along with our boyfriends) dropped by an adoption drive and it was adorable doggies galore! We were individually drawn to different dogs and spent a good amount of our Sunday afternoon just patting and staring at them with heart-shaped eyes. I strongly believe in adopting and I really hope SOSD will contact Min soon with adoption details! I can’t wait to have doggie cuddles with Min’s new love.
Have a happy week ahead!
With love, Min+Jia
