Today Charioko, Kiiroko, and myself are packing our stuff because Father Bunny decided that we should visit one of his Grandmas that is living in a place called Leon.

She lives at the country and therefore we will be able to enjoy fresh vegetables that she cultivates. But more much exciting is that we will meet a lot of new bunny friends.

In this picture taken just on the Great Wall’s side I tried to make some friends with those handsome rabbits from Beijing but I speak Cantonese and I have just studied only a little bit of Mandarin.

Anyways they invited me to some fresh carrots.

Miffa’s Tokyo bunny traveller guide: my first techno shock.

Do you see the pink bunny here?
During my first, actually second day in Tokyo we visited Ginza. It is just a few minutes walking from Mandarin Oriental (much better that Hyatt).

I will describe Ginza better in other, longer and more detailed article, but the fact is than Mother and Father Bunny needed to connect home to check some items and of course me to tell my fans about my adventures in our way to visit Sony Building area we passed by Apple store Ginza. A multi story building who let you see, feel and touch the latest Apple stuff (as others vendors stuff made for Apples). The also have a free internet room in the fourth floor.

Father Bunny and me were wondering why all the labels (just one note a 2GB nano ipod costs there 100 euros) have barcodes that were quite unfamiliar for us. People were taking pictures of the labels with their mobile phones. We were told that Japanese are techno freaks but this was even more than we expected.

In at least three stores we asked about but no response. It was a mystery. Then in a link that we found in Cafemiffy, and that pointed to the wonderful restaurant they invited us we found a big clue:

QR-code

Qr codes are very popular in Japan. Originally developed by Denso-wave QR stands for “quick response”. The rest of the story can be found in Wikipedia but nowadays is a handy, fast and very imaginative way to scan information with your mobile device.

All that business cards, addresses, telephones are inside your mobile device memory just pressing a button

Here you can generate your own QR-CODE as the one we have included in this post.
There you can download a free QR-CODE reader for a lot of mobile phones.

Tip: If you have a HTC TyTn download v.3.3

Sant Jordi at Barcelona
April 25, 2007, 9:28 pm

Rambla Catalunya (11:00 am)

Past Monday (23rd) in Catalonia we celebrated “Sant Jordi”.

Men give their girlfriends, colleagues and friends roses, and women give men a book to celebrate the occasion. Many people as our friend Katanga say that is “A Saint Valentine day from Catalonia”

Anyways both Cervantes and Shakespeare died on April 23rd so a wise publisher has the idea to promote this day as a good day to give each other a book.

Charioko and Kiiroko were amazingly surprised during all day as they were witnessing all the amazing and frenetic activity that was right in from our home.

Father bunny was pissed off, but he bought roses for us.

Chirioko and Kirioko spent a nice Sunday together with Draculina downtown Barcelona

Draculina, new Japanese Miffa´s sister, arrived this week to Barcelona . She was completely exhausted after a long trip from Japan. So, they decided to have a nice relaxing weekend. They were brewing Japanese tee at home and then they decided to go for a walk closed to our house. Chirioko and Kirioko asked Mother Bunny , if there was some cherry blossom in Barcelona. Mother Bunny explained them that we have no cherry blossom in Barcelona. However, we have nice flowers at Plaza Cataluña . So, the three of them decided to enjoy a sunny spring Sunday lying on the flowers

Draculina has become a nice friend and she likes spending some time home with Chirioko and Kirioko. The thing that they like the most is pending some time on our balcony having a look at the people walking around and sitting at the café terrace.
