Lucky Traveling Bears

Hello there, here’s a dedicated page to share the adventures of my lucky traveling bears.

My friends ask me why do I bother bringing my stuffed animals all over the world and take photographs of them?

Well, if you haven’t already notice, my face hardly appears (Yes it does occasionally appear in group photos) in my website as I am a relatively camera shy individual who prefers to stay behind the lens rather than in front of the lens.

It all started back in 2012 where I was “backpacking” (Inverted Commas because I actually traveled with a luggage) around Europe. Paddington has been a cartoon that I love watching when I was younger and I was always fascinated with his boots and blue trench coat. Now that I have visited London, his attire makes total sense of the rainy weather. On a side not, I ended up buying the smallest paddington plushie (which cot 9.95 pound) as I was jobless during my grad trip. Well, I made a promise that I will be buying the bigger bear in my next trip to London and it can join my Rilakkuma family on my bed. I can’t remember when Duffy joined Paddy in the adventures but according to the photographs, it was between Oct 2012 and Aug 2013. My brother went to Disneyland and bought a bunch of keychains and I stole Duffy from his bag of plushies. Maybe stole wasn’t the word. I self-invited or rather pre-empt his invitation to take one. From that day, I hooked them together with a Carabiner (Really useful tool when traveling). Two years ago, I added the iPhone sim card pin (another very useful but easily forgotten tool) and last year, I added the lucky charm pouch from the shrines in Japan.

Here we go..
