...with a break in the monsoon-type weather, the Captain and crew have finally made their way back to the ship and prepare to begin their journey to the next port of call. If they take the shortcut they can be there with time to spare. Life is good. The Captain is pleased. "Captain, what's our heading?" "Well matey, I think backing away from the pier is a good start. Once you've gotten that accomplished, head for the Andaman Sea." "Aye, aye Captain. I think I can manage that." And as the ship begins to move, a large splintering sound is heard... "Damn matey! What happened?" "Ummm... I think we hit the pier, Captain." "Great! Now they will want us to pay for repairs. Are we damaged?" "No Captain, only the pier." "Cool! Let's get out of here before they try to board us!"

Having successfully evaded the port authority, the ship sails smoothly out to sight and heads for the Andaman. "Captain, you mentioned something about a shortcut? What shortcut?" "Matey, you'll follow the Strait of Malacca. Don't you have a map or something? We took the same route last year." "Right. Map. Nope, no map." "Matey just follow the signs. They're posted all along the way." Soon the ship enters then exits the Malaccan Strait and heads for port in Singapore.

Once tied to the pier, the crew begins to disembark and is met by a very friendly gray and white cat. "Captain, I think the cat wants us to follow him." "Of course he does, matey. That's Wafe. He's been sent to meet us." "Captain, you know this cat?" "Of course I do! He belongs to the birthday girl." And with that, the crew gets down on all fours, begins to follow Wafe and tries to sing at the same time...

How much is that kitty in the window (meow, meow)
The one with the gray and white fur
How much is that kitty in the window (meow, meow)
I do hope he knows how to purr

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have an absolutely wonderful day (Nov. 10th) filled with family, friends, MARTINIS, and lots of love from Wafe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, lots of love from Wafe is a given!! ;)

As the crew still try following the cat, while on their hands and knees, Captain Isa sneaks off to the closest pet shop...

A massive thank you to Isa, Arif, Kris, Sam and Hien!! (forum needs a heart emote!) Thank you guys for remembering and for putting up this lovely thread, and for all your wishes. I'm laughing my head off at the story and song, and trying to imagine the crew following Wafe

And catnip martinis are excellent for hairballs ;)
