A right royal party at Greenwich

Greenwich celebrated being a royal borough yesterday with fireworks on the river.

This makes Bear and Lion the royally cute residents of Greenwich, which they have plenty of experience with. This was them last year celebrating the royal wedding.


Happy Chinese New Year from Bear and Lion

Tomorrow is Chinese New Year, bringing with it the year of the Dragon. This time last year Bear and Lion were in Singapore being surrounded by giant people on stilts.

This time around they tried to do a Lion Dance but the costume turned out to be too small. Also Bear didn’t want to be the bum and Lion was too fat.

Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Hei Fat Choi!



Take a break and eat cake

Last week we went to visit some friends near Birmingham, which incidentally is twinned with Frankfurt, hence the Frankfurt German Christmas Market that is currently in town. Our friend Anji made us an amazing cake (which took a ridiculously short amount of time to finish).

Anji also makes super yummy cupcakes at Oriental Bakes which she makes to order. If you’re lucky enough to live near her you should definitely try some!


Happy Halloween!

Bear and Lion love Halloween. Last year we got them a pumpkin which Bear managed to make into a bigger pumpkin (wow!).

This year Bear and Lion put away their wizard hats and, together with their friend Longlegs Sillitoe, reached for their cowboy hats instead. Yee-haw!


Pssst Bear and Lion have new business cards!

When Bear and Lion go about town, inevitably they attract a certain amount of attention. They’re quite used to it now and will pose for a few photos but there are some who are a bit shy to say hello and others who don’t really know what to make of them.

So we decided to get some Bear and Lion cards made up so people could go to the website and find out more about them. It would’ve come in handy when we got talking to the London bus driver in Langkawi, the photographer at the Southbank, the two ladies in Brighton and all those tourists who shared the pod on the London Eye with us.

They’ve arrived (thanks to Moo.com for a brilliant job) and here’s a sample of what some of them look like. We think they look great, what do you think?

Welcome to our new website – all shiny and nice!

Hello and welcome to the revamped blog and website! Things pertaining to Bear and Lion used to be scattered all around the webiverse, but now with a bit of housekeeping, you can find their lovely stories and photos all in one place. Plus, for those of you who wanted to know a little bit more, you can read about Bear and Lion.

Enjoy, we’re very proud of the new-look website. We would love to hear any feedback, leave them in the comments below or head on over to our Facebook page.

Happy last day of August!
