Cotton is an Easter Rabbit

Cotton is an Easter Rabbit

Cotton
Here is a little secret, Cotton is in fact an Easter Rabbit! During the Easter period, she judges who has been naughty and who has been good. Then she carries coloured Easter eggs in her little baskets, delivering them to the well behaved children. Wait, hold on. Did I just mix the story up with Santa Claus... Maybe... 1.Let's go for an adventure into the forest (I painted the background drop, which is suppose to be a forest of human anatomical organs) 2. Meanwhile, start an Easter egg hunt. Collect them in a basket. 3. Beautiful eggs. 4. Ah! A friend. I like you, so I am going to chin you to claim you as mine. (Rabbits have scent glands on their chin. They would rub their chin on anything they like to…

Who Let the Rabbits Out?

Who Let the Rabbits Out?

Cotton
Easter is here. Rabbits are out everywhere. Who let the rabbits out? Paperchase   Tiger  \ So here is my question, why aren't these cute rabbits there all year round? Who wouldn't want to look at these cute bunnies?! Build A "Rabbit" (Bear) Just look at those bunny slippers! I was very tempted to build my own "rabbit" (bear), but of course, I do feel I am a little bit too old for soft toys. Besides, we have so many at home already...

A Boy and A Rabbit

A Boy and A Rabbit

Cotton
Just another ordinary morning... Previously, we did a post on A Girl and A Rabbit, to show the relationship between Cotton and me. I thought it would only be fair if I also do a post on Cotton and my boyfriend. So this time, Cotton's Daddy makes a very rare appearance. He enjoys maintaining a low profile, and preferred not to show up on my blog that often, but I thought these photos are too great not to be shared. It was indeed just a very ordinary morning. Cotton happened to jump onto his bed, sniffing around. I would describe my boyfriend as a bit of a laddy lad,  sticking to his techno gadgets and pumping iron in the gym. I never thought he would be a rabbit person, simply because he…

A Girl and A Rabbit

Cotton, Live
Six months of blogging Six months ago, I started this blog. Over this short period, I have gained things beyond monetary values. I have learned more about web development, digital marketing and content management. Then, there are things I would not have tried if I were not having this blog: I would not have gone to the Mozfest, which got me interested in learning more about technology, and I certainly would not have attended the London Pure trade show. Cotton is definitely the inspiration of this blog. Without her joining our life, I would not have started this blog at all. Yet, it would be unfair to say the website is solely about Cotton. On several occasions, people have asked me what this blog is about. Food? Rabbit? Life? I have…

Aldo Valentine’s Preview & Five Guys

Aldo Valentine’s Preview & Five Guys

Cotton, Eat
Aldo Valentine's Preview It's that time of the year again, so much love in the air... We were invited to Aldo Valentine's preview. I have always been in love with Aldo's stylish shoes. In fact two of my favourite pairs were from there. This year, Aldo introduces the Love to Love collection for the upcoming Valentine's day, featuring the red lips on high heels, perfect for the special occasion. If this design is too daring for you, There are other colours to pick from, but seriously, aren't they gorgeous. As we browsed the shoes at this special VIP event, every now and then, some food and prosecco circulate around. Shoes always go with bags. These two designs, with the strong colour and the delicate emboidery, caught my eyes. That hint…

Happy Birthday Cotton: a letter to my bunny

Happy Birthday Cotton: a letter to my bunny

Cotton
Happy birthday Cotton, our darling bunny! I still clearly remember the day I brought you home. I was as nervous as you were, unsure what to do. I didn’t even dare to touch you and you probably wanted nothing to do with me. You spent two whole days in the hide hole, only to come out for food when no one was around. You would flinch away from me as soon as I tried to stroke you, would thump your foot if any sound arises. You were so shy. Bonding between you and me did not come naturally, and it certainly was not a smooth process. As someone who is always demanding and controlling, I wanted you to be affectionate towards me immediately. There were several occasions, I doubted that…

Chaos before Christmas, but luckily I have a little helper

Chaos before Christmas, but luckily I have a little helper

Cotton
Chaos before Christmas: presents to buy, cards to write, friends to meet, and on top of everything, trying to draw this year's work to somewhat of a closure. Exhaustion is the word. All the sudden, Christmas is not something I really look forward to. Have I become Miss Scrooge? Deep breath, I try to calm down and stop stressing over these things. Luckily, I had a little helper to assist with gift wrapping. Well, I only hoped she did not leave teeth marks to all the gifts I have prepared! Your thought is hugely appreciated Cotton, but perhaps you should leave all the preparation to Mummy... Be careful, no teeth marks please! Now, Cotton is dragging the wrapping paper. Thank you, my little elf.  Cotton is checking all the presents are…

Boyfriend went to the Google Cloud Conference, and all I got was a “Cardboard Box”

Cotton, Girl in Tech, Live
‘What is this? Get it out of my sight’, seeing the rectangular cardboard box on top of the shoe cabinet, this is the first thing that came out of my mouth. ‘Oh, it’s for you. It is the google VR’. I clumsily and suspiciously opened up the box, and unfolded it into the goggle shape. ‘There is nothing here, it doesn’t work…’ Oh dear, sometimes, I do feel sorry for my techie boyfriend who has such a technology retarded girlfriend. I did not know I was suppose to download an app on the smart phone, then insert the phone into the box. Never mind, I quickly lost my interest in this ‘boring’ little item. As having a perpetual habit of throwing things out and tidying things up, I was waiting to…

Princess I have never been a big fan of cats. In a way, I am a bit afraid of them, but today, a particular little cat melted my heart. Boyfriend and I went to a meetup event at the Innovation Warehouse on top of the Smithfield Market, here we met Princess, also known as the Startup Cat. She roamed around the place like the true boss, and cast her cuteness spell on every passerby. Of course, I was a victim of hers too, started thinking whether she would get on with Cotton. Well, they are about the same size, so maybe... Princess was definitely more confident, posing in all sorts of ways in front of my camera, like a seasoned celebrity. Well, she is, she even has her own twitter page. Pho (Happy…
