I didn't have high hopes of celebrating my birthday and Halloween here in Hong Kong since Mummy had managed my expectations that it would be rather difficult to find a customized pet costume, and albeit not one but for two, since I did arrive with that annoying pug sister of mine, Pepper-Marli.
Behold, Mummy and Daddy come home extremely excited on Friday with some delicious smelling contents in a box. I was only allowed to sniff but not look. Turns out that the contents in the box was my cake from Three Dogs Bakery. Mummy said she would have baked me one just like I had for my 2nd birthday which I spent in Ithaca. But she didn't have all the materials here for baking me a cake.
Saturday afternoon rolls around... And with a knock on the door Auntie Michelle and Uncle Greg appear with a gift (too bad non-edible) as well as my Corgi buddy, Jasper, from New York! It was the best birthday ever with my fave foie gras baked treats from Bouchon in New York i.e. asides from the birthday party I last had with Spanky Doodle Dandy. We sang, blew out my candles and had some yummy-licious carrot cake topped with yogurt frosting. All that sugar got burned off with a walk to the Peak. I was so very excited to be reunited my pal, Jasper.
Well, if all my birthdays are going to be like my 4th birthday I am sure lovin Hong Kong all right! Off now for some leftover cake 'fore Pepper Marli nabs my share too.
Pugs & kisses! Meeoowww...
