14th May Updates - My New Pup, Pharaoh!


This space is dead already isn't it? hahaha. Sorry for the lack of updates guys! I am kinda taking some time off blogging to concentrate on filming and soon, a new little fella in my life, which I'll talk more about later. At the moment, I am waiting to receive my diploma certificate from Temasek Polytechnic, hence I am able to spend a lot of time at home and at shoots. 

I'd like to be able to say that I used the time and money to travel, but I only managed to visit Bangkok lately. It was just a short little getaway with Fai and Shine, where we did nothing but shop and eat. It was a pleasant trip but nothing quite spectacular since Bangkok's just another concrete jungle like Singapore. I've learnt that I truly only enjoy beach holidays, and that I am constantly yearning for one ever since my recent Bali visit.

However, in time to come, I might not be able to travel as much as I've always wanted to anyway! And that's all because I got myself a puppy! hehehe. I've no complains or regrets whatsoever though. I've always wanted a dog and I knew that I'll get one some day. As time went by, I fell in love with a specific breed, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. I'd spent the last few years watching videos of Corgis, reading up on them, and after knowing so much about this breed; my heart was set on getting one. The only problem is, it's not a popular dog breed among Singaporeans, and the demand isn't high, so it's hard to find one at a local pet store or shelter. And since it's so rare, Corgis in Singapore are sold at a really high price. Therefore, I'd spent the last year saving up so that I can get a Corgi puppy for myself one day. And I did it! *Grinning proudly*

My little Corgi pup is still living with the pet breeder, and I will only be able to take him home a month from now, since he is required to undergo vaccinations first. I agreed because I'll be away in Penang for filming (Another great news! I’ll be in Mata Mata season 3!!), over the next few weeks starting 21st May, and will not be present to give my full attention to my little pup just yet (but I am still able to visit him as much as I can). By the time I am done with filming, I'll be able to take him home with me! Perfecto! It’s match make in heaven :)

If you've been following up with me on Instagram, where I am much more consistent with my postings, you probably already know my pup's name. I chose to name my puppy Pharaoh, like the title given to kings of ancient Egypt. You see Corgis aren't like popular toy breed dogs (e.g. Chihuahua, Pomeranian, Shih Tzu etc.) in Singapore; they're not like your typical cute cuddly breeds. In my opinion, they're competition type dogs - outgoing, bold and tenacious. They're herding dogs so they are highly trainable (Corgis are ranked 11th most intelligent dogs), and know exactly what they want, thus I find their characteristics very admirable and inspirational in some way. Because of their personality, I couldn't bring myself to give him cutesy names like "Fluffy", "Booboo" or whatsoever. I thought a Corgi would be more suited with a respectable name. Hence I called him Pharaoh.

Why Pharaoh? It is simply because I've always been intrigued by Ancient Egyptian culture, deities and royalties. That's quite a known fact about me FYI. 

I am aware that Corgis need tons of exercise and mental stimulation; hence I plan to spend everyday for the first few months of Pharaoh's development at home with him. Yes, I am committed in staying home to train him and bond with him. Should I need to leave the house, I'll try my best to bring him along :)

I even have plans to take Pharaoh for puppy training classes so that he gets the opportunity to play and socialize with other pups and their owners. A lot of dogs in Singapore end up aggressive because they didn't get the opportunity to mingle with other dogs and learn social skills as a puppy. I don't ever want Pharaoh to grow up into a timid, unfriendly or aggressive dog, so I will do all I can now before it's too late.

Since I don't know much about Pharaoh's personality yet (except for the fact that he makes a lot of funny faces), I shall end this post here. You can expect a lot of blog entries about him in future once I get to learn more about him! hahaha. I am certain that there will be a lot of ups and downs, but I am mentally and physically prepared for it all. Through my experiences so far, I've learnt that getting a dog isn't child's play. It's a HUGE responsibility, rigorous research and preparation goes into getting one, and sadly a lot of people just don't understand it (it's about the same as having a newborn baby).


I can't wait to bring Pharaoh home with me, and I can't wait to start training him. It's going to a be a roller-coaster ride, but I'm sure Pharaoh will be the best thing that has ever happened to my family and I :)

  28. Hi
    I am a Corgi lover , owner, writer and founder of a Corgi social club here in Wellington, New Zealand. I presently have a 14 month old Pembroke Corgi named Fletcher Evans and he is just joined a modelling agency. Your Pharoah is obviously a beauty and has a lovely cheeky look (personality-plus) and I would say is as lively as a Pem Corgi should be. If you would like the red parts of his coat to be a darker red (and who doesn't) sprinkle some kelp on his meals daily. Kelp is wonderful for other bebefits too and Corgis like the taste.

  29. Refer to above "benefits" not "bebefits". By the way my email address is mjromanos@hotmail.com
