Paradise lost

What a great day to start saturday by hiding under the sheets from the early morning chill. And then the worst that you can imagine happened. My neighbor's newly installed home alarm system got set off at 7:50 in the morning, waking the whole paradise with a rude and abiding cock-a-doodle-doo.

It happened that two gardeners weren't aware of my next-door neighbor's latest widget and triggered the buzz as they were trying the gates to enter. Thus giving birth to the first ever case of false alarm in the 20-year history of the idyllic neighborhood.

Ah Pui: Really? You mean I'm finally speaking one of your earth languages?

Therese: I had made a point to get up early for the Narnia tickets, just so happened that my neighbor's alarm went off a little earlier and a lot louder than mine!!
