Grinders Coffee

Had this cup of cappucino made from grinders coffee beans. It smells and taste so great!! I love Australia coffee….really missed those hot coffee/chocolate and crossiants that I had in Melbourne a couple of years back. 😀

無意中喝到了這杯用grinders咖啡豆所沖泡出來的卡布奇诺
又香又濃的澳洲咖啡
讓我想起了幾年前到墨尔本旅游時的點點滴滴
那裡的熱咖啡或巧克力配上可頌麵包
真的讓我至今回味無窮 😀

Yonge-Dundas Square, Toronto

Received this postcard from my buddy who shifted to Canada after her marriage.
It features Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto.

Can’t wait to be there personally. I’m crossing my fingers that this wish will come true next year. 🙂

剛剛收到好朋友從加拿大寄來的明信片
片上的地方是位於加拿大多倫多市中心的央-登打士廣場
這明信片就是在那買的

很希望有一天能夠親自到那裡走走看看
體會一下多倫多的風情
期望明年這個願望就能實現 🙂

Jackie Teddy Bear recently moved to a new location at Park Mall (still at basement 1 though). So there’s a change in the outlook of the store. It’s more cosy and much brighter than before as the store colour had changed from green to white. 🙂

最近Jackie泰迪熊店因為搬到新的位置(但還是在同一所大廈的底層)
所以店面也換了個新樣貌
不再是以暗綠色為主
而是改用了白色
現在的店面比以前更明亮更溫馨了 🙂

Do pop by if you have a chance to. Jackie and the teddies will always welcome you. ^^

有空的話﹐請到店裡走一走
Jackie和熊熊們一定會非常歡迎你的 ^^

I haven’t been “in contact” with teddy bears for quite a long while, so it’s kind of exciting to know that a teddy bear fair & tea party is coming up. You get to look at beautiful teddies, have a great snack and the chance to chat with bear artists and bear lovers. Such a wonderful feeling!

Come take a look at the teddy scene now. 😀

好久沒有接觸小熊熊了
知道最近有個泰迪熊展覽兼下午茶會
心情就顯得有點興奮

可以看到許多可愛的泰迪熊
享用美味的茶點
還能和熊熊創作者與愛好者聊聊天
是再也快樂不過的事了

來吧﹐現在就跟著我到熊熊樂園轉一圈﹗ 😀

Can you imagine someone who has been making teddy bears for 25 years and still going strong about it? Ginger Brame is one of these great artists (I believe there’s many more out there) and I’m very lucky to own one of her beautiful creations. 😀

I’m not good at describing things. So, instead of going on and on about her lovely bears, I would rather you make a trip down to The Piece Parade or Bearbits to take a look. I’m sure you will not be disappointed. And yes, Ginger is currently hosting a silver anniversary blog giveaway. You will stand a chance to own Easter Surprise. Draw ends on 24th March. So hurry down there and have fun admiring her teddies!! (^o^)

你可以想像花了二十五年的心思和時間在製作泰迪熊上嗎﹖
如果你深愛泰迪熊如Ginger Brame一樣
那是絕對有可能的唷﹗

雖然我不會製作泰迪熊
卻很愛欣賞和收集它們
我有幸擁有一只Ginger所創作的熊寶寶
所以覺得很幸福 😀

與其跟大家說一大堆美美的形容詞
倒不如大家到Ginger家去瞧瞧
就能了解為什么她的作品那麼受歡迎

Ginger的部落格最近也有好禮相送
如果你想有機會擁有以上照片裡的Easter Surprise
就要趕在二十四日或之前到她的部落格走走
祝你我好運﹗ (^o^)
