Nom: Neighbourly Noms

When I was growing up, my parents and I lived in a HDB ‘point block’ that had three other families on the same floor. We weren’t close, but we were always friendly, and it would show during the festive seasons….

Cats: Tenacious Bob

Cats: Tenacious Bob

Bob has a playhouse from 12buy.sg that he loves. He doesn’t so much play as lurk in it, watching the world go by. And when our cleaning lady stacked it up on a chair to mop the floor, Bob wasn’t…
