Zubin is now available for adoption!

Remember Zubin, a bear we create specially for the Christmas competition last December? He won the 2nd place in the competition and is made from our dear friend, Margaret Burke's bear pattern.



Zubin is made from ultra soft Japanese Alpaca and he has a little bear friend as a companion. His outfit is specially designed to fit him.

Zubin has stayed with us for awhile, and we feel that now is the time for him to find a new loving home!

We are pleased to announce that he is now available for adoption on our website.

By the way, please stay tuned for our Anniversary blog give-away!
We would like to thank you for your continuous support and joining our mailing list! 

Have a wonderful week!

Hugs,
Wayne

Lunar New Year Gathering at Winnie's Place

Winnie invited us to her place for a Lunar New Year Gathering 2 weeks ago. When we arrived, Winnie showed us her collection of jewelery which she had made herself! They were all intricately done and we were amazed by her handiwork!

We all made ourselves at home as we sat down to talk while waiting for the rest to come. Winnie had many New Year goodies and we couldn't resist helping ourselves the snacks!



Once everyone arrived, we started with the "Lo Hei" aka "Yusheng"! Also known as the Prosperity Toss in english, it is a Cantonese style raw fish salad comprising of shredded vegetables, raw fish (usually Salmon), pomelo, pickled ginger, crackers, and a variety of condiments. The Chinese believe that having this dish is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.



After eating the "Yusheng", we had Cedele for lunch! Winnie had generously ordered a variety of sandwiches and pastries for us! She also made ice jelly for dessert!

We all had a great time and enjoyed the fellowship together. Thank you Winnie for hosting us and we look forward to our next Teddy Bear group gathering!

Hugs,
Wayne

Farewell dinner with Anna Filatova

Before Anna's return back to Russia, the Singapore Teddy Bear Lovers had a farewell dinner held at Kallang Wave Mall's Aji-Ichi.


We enjoyed the good food and company. We were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was spacious and quiet! It is ideal place for us to hold our gathering the next time!

We were excited to meet our little friend, baby Peter again who is just 6 months old. Wayne quickly took the opportunity to have a picture taken with him. Anna's husband Andre wasn't able to join us due to work.



After dinner, Paula introduced us a game known as "Cards against Humanity". The game was hilarious and the place was soon  filled with laughter. Everyone laughed at the different ridiculous answers given by everyone and we were glad that Anna enjoyed the game too!

At 10pm, we bade goodbye to Anna and Peter. We hope to see them soon again in Singapore the next time......  or perhaps in Russia! 

Hugs,

Wayne
