Happy Chinese New Year And We Have Special Guests!

GONG XI FA CAI! 

Today is February 10, 2013 and the first day of the Chinese New Year! And this year, it is the Year of the Ssssssnake! And how wonderful that Pip and Puddles came to visit on this special day!

Our friend, Pip, hasn't been feeling very well lately, but instead of sitting around at home, he has decided to go on a Bucket World Tour with Nurse Puddles. We heard about Puddles and her amazing driving skills and were most impressed at how she managed to *drive* all the way from the Molly's place in London to Malaysia through mountains, oceans and everything else!

*BEEP BEEP*
We're here, Furries of Whisppy!
Whisky : Uh, Puddles, be careful up there! You don't want to break the Boat of Prosperity!
Puddles : HEY. Maybe we could go home in this fishing boat?
Pip : That's not a bad idea. We could do a spot of fishing on the way!
Pip : Uh, I'm not sure if this was such a good idea after all...Mr Lion doesn't look very happy
Puddles : Will ya hurry up and take the picture? Mr Lion's getting testy!
* S M I L E *
Pip : Aren't these orchids beautiful? I wanted to bring some home for my Assistant but decided a photo would probably last longer. Oh, and that's Puddles by my side in case you were wondering. She grabbed a baby lion on the way here..
Whisky : OMD Puddles! They are on to us. Drop that baby lion and RUN!
Whisky : We enjoyed your company very much! The two red packets are called "ang pows" and they contain some money for you to use as you please. And Mommy made a fresh batch of chicken jerky for you to snack on your way home!
PS / Tutu asks if you notice anything new on our header.  ;)

PPS / Katie, Boomie is on his way to pick you up. Mommy has a yummy meal prepared for our CNY dinner!

( ***whisper ) I have mom's secret to tell you. When my mom was a kid. She was so scared Mr. Lion. Every new lunar year when Mr. lion came to visit her. She and a doggie ( chow chow ) ran real fast to upstairs !...tee..heh
Happy New Lunar Year !!!

Nice header. Happy New Year and we hope the snake brings you many good things. Ha ha Pip & Puddles on the run. At least they had some celebration before the Po Po arrived. Have a super Sunday.
Best wishes Molly

Marg said...

Sure looks like Pip and Puddles had a good time at your house. What fun to sit on a lion and glad you didn't get eaten by the lion.
Look at Tutu on the header. Whooo HOoooo. That is our Godchild. Isn't she the cutest. A very Happy Chinese New Year to all of you. Take care.

Mr. Pip said...

We are here!!!! Oh, this is SO EXCITING FOR US! And Puddles, do be careful with the Boat of Prosperity - after this trip we are going to need some help with prosperity!

P.S.: Tutu looks GREAT on the header by the way!

Mr. Pip said...

You stick to fishing, Puddles, and let Whisky drive the boat!

Oh, and I don't think Mr. Lion wants any Cheetos ...we better not make him angry. Puddles, stop telling him to "Giddy Up" ...he's a lion not a horse.

Purrfect Haven said...

take care Mr Pip, we loved the sneaky tour and are delighted it is the year of the snake (our Mum is planning to get a Corn snake). Thanks for taking time to leave us a comment. Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

Bouncing Bertie said...

Malaysia - wow I hope you are collecting air miles P+P! But really, you do need to be careful around lions. Especially ones that are "getting testy".
Toodle pip!

Happy New Year! How great that Pip and Puddles were able to make it to the big celebration in honor of the snake. We can see that had a wonderful time (well except for when those guys with guns was hunting them down.)

We love that Puddles put on a lions head! She looked pretty spooky.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hello Tutu, darling. It was thrilling seeing you for that little cuddle last night. I'm glad you didn't mind that I'm a money.

Sorry--Australia sent us these lousy eucalyptus trees but none of those cute little bears. I hear they're kind of mean, though, so perhaps you don't really want one.

Oui Oui said...

What an exciting time! We're glad you escaped from the SWAT team. Yay, Tutu made the header! Now she is official!

Pretinha said...

That was fun! WOW! Puddles are very brave taking photo above Lion.

haopee said...

Happy Chinese New Year to you guys... We used to pronounced it "Kong Hei Fat Choi"... over the years, they changed it.

Whisky is pretty as always.

Huggies and Cheese,

Haopee

Tamago said...

Alien said...

I heard a rumor that Pip, Puddles, Shamu, and a baby lion were last seen in a boat filled with cheetos and beers headed towards their next stop. I hope they don't wind up like the guy in Life of Pi.

Yours,

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Happy Chinese New Year! Sounds like the year got off to a great start :)

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

You know, Tutu, you could come to the Catican and have a ride in the Popemobile. I could dress you up like a nun or sumfing. Maybe a Swiss Guard--their outfits are really cool.
