10 family-friendly dogs to bring home

Sarah and I finally have our place and top of the list (on my list that is) was to get us a small little dog because I’m a huge dog lover.

10 fond memories of growing up in an all boy’s school in the 90s

 

I spent the best years of my childhood running around in the infamous short green shorts with painful metal shirt buttons that pressed into your tits and your shoulders alongside other notable clowns like Joakim gomez, Tay ping hui, Lee hsien loong and my BFF, Paul twohill.

If you’re thinking, ehh green shorts? metal buttons?  and guessed Catholic High, well..  you’ve guessed right! haha!
