Caught on camera

This is what happens when conservationists set up some camera traps in a reserve on the Afghan border.

This snow leopard cub took quite a liking to one of the cameras and ran off with it. This is obviously a common problem – being caught by surprise on camera that is – and Bear and Lion aren’t immune to it.

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!
