Spike (almost) alone at home

Brief recap on history: Once Malaysia and Singapore were one and the same country. Then they decided to split off or were kicked out, depending on whom you ask.

As a result Malsysians now only get a 2 weeks visa if they don't have a valid work permit. Which applies to Nicole at the moment. Hence, she left her two boys (Spike and Stefan) alone for a week.

Worried about the fact that he is now 50% heavier than what he should be, Spike will now undergo a very rigid fitness regime. We started this morning with a walk before breakfast.
Later I buy him a treadmill.

My Employment pass has been approved and I can plow ahed now working.

Genetic mutations

I think there is something wrong with Spike.
Silky Terriers are said to weight an average of 3.5 - 4.5 Kg.
Certainly there is always a chance that you end up outside this range.

However, Spike now amasses 6.8KG now with NO flabby fat whatsoever.
I am afraid he will turn out to be a Silky Terrier Doberman mix...

Singapore is NOT safe!!!

If you thought Singapore is a save place, think again.
My bycyle just got stolen. It was secured with a heavy lock, tied to a lantern!! in front of a shopping mall with lots of people milling about!!!
The place is within walking distance of 2 (TWO!!!) police stations (and that is not far, given the climate here and walking is not enjoyable)

And a quote from Mr. Police: "This happens here ALL the time!"
Good to know that my tax dollar is hard at work here and that fighting crime is a priority.
Not sure if I should be angrier at the thief or the police??

Lucky we are soon moving out of here (Singapore that is) to a place were at least no one pretends it is safe.
