Happy New Year!! – Off course I speak Cantonese, so do nt ask me for the Mandarin form because I have no idea.

I was born in the year of the Monkey, my father on the Rat’s and we celebrated the Golden Pig with a nice present that “should” bring us fortune and money.

Unfortunately for me, Miffu and now Aurore, Chinese New Year is not very popular in Spain. In a big city like Barcelona there’s not an “official” celebration and even Chinese restaurant do not change their menus on this date.

Fortunately for us, we are ex-pats from Hong Kong but we have very good friends there: The 9j Clan.

They have sent us a complete set of goodies to let us feel like at home. A Mandarin orange tree (tangerine / 柑) , (our preferred Hotel and fruit that match our caps’ colours), several decoration papers with goodwill and fortune words on it, firecrackers (some special ones) and a lot of goodies that made us very happy.

But the party have just started now…



About my sister, and my laziness

This picture founded by Miffu proved that I wasn’t alone

Lately I must reckon that all my blogging efforts are over Miffu and Father Bunny’s shoulders.

As you surely know my twin sister has arrived from HK. I didn’t even know that I had one twin sister. When Miffu and Father Bunny told me that they have hired a private eye from HK to follow some clues they have had over the time I was shocked.

After almost two weeks spending all my time with my sister, sometimes I wonder if this is not just a dream. Two sisters that were separated when born and lived a very different life for the past four years.

It’s like in one of Mother Bunny’s favourite movies: Woody Allen’s Match Point. Fate and destiny depend on fragile pieces. Sometimes it makes a big difference to stay on one side of the line or another one.

Who was in the right side and who was in the wrong side is difficult to determine. For sure my sister has not lived an easy life during past years.

The Orange Cap Sect accepts a new member

Miffa is a member of The Supreme Council for The Bunny Attitude but as you might imagine the council is formed by many different bunnies that represents different parts of the world, different races, and of course who have different visions of the future bunny world.

As I have told to my daughter a lot of times one of the most widespread rabbit is the European Rabbit who has his origin in the Iberian Peninsula.

Anyways, she decided to become a Buddhist Bunny and to create her own sect inside it. As time passed by Draculina, Ookina and new members of the orange cap joined her and they have developed their own rules and culture.

Yesterday Draculina’s twin sister arrived from Hong Kong after a real nightmare finding her way from Madrid to Barcelona. She has been sleeping all the day long until 18:00 when Miffa, Ookina, Draculina and Miffu (the only no orange cap member accepted) were waiting to have tea.

The ceremony ended about 21:00 when Draculina’s twin sister has received her new nameDraculina J- and, after reading the letter 9j wrote, she was nominated as a new sect member.

Of course 9j is a member of the sect and the council. As Miffu, she is from Hong Kong and this is just enough to become a member if you pass the severe test and trials. You don’t need to wear that orange cap that – of course- denotes certain grade.

The graduation is a matter that it will be better explained by my daughter herself. In the pictures, please note the details that show the special character of this sect (ie: Miffa is wearing her band the other way out, with the golden colour outside)

Bad Habits – Malas constumbres

I need some time, let’s say I need some of my Father’s time to classify and organize my pictures and our thoughts.

Meanwhile I just enjoy looking my pictures whit my sisters and friends while having tea, a very nice white tea that I bought in Honk Kong.

I am missing Hong Kong a lot this time. After a really “grey” travel with a lot of stress coming from my parents and visiting what it’s may be the biggest trade fair in Asia – very boring and tiring activity- .

Besides my father told me during our trip that we won’t travel to Dubai this summer and I got upset with him. I tried to change her mind using “guerrilla” techniques:

  • I use a chador the rest of my trip
  • I don’t speak to him in English or Spanish, just Cantonese
  • And in the hotels we stayed in Mainland China I organized illegal games in our room and use his credit card to buy beer and cigarettes.

I was afraid of Mrs Katanga knowing about it (she advises my father about more strict education and going to school) but now I know that she smokes.


Necesito tiempo, bueno, digamos que necesito algo de tiempo de mi padre para que clasifique y organice las fotos y nuestros recuerdos.

Mientras intento disfrutar de las mismas con mis hermanas y amigas mientras tomamos té blanco, un té blanco muy bueno que compre en Hong Kong.

Esta vez echo mucho de menos mi ciudad. Después de un viaje un poco gris con un montón de stress por culpa de mis padres y visitando la que seguramente es la mayor feria de Asia – y más coñazo y aburrimiento-

Además mi padre me dijo durante el viaje que no iríamos a Dubai este verano y me enfade mucho con él. Intenté hacerle cambiar de opinión usando mis técnicas de guerrilla.

  • Me puse un chador el resto del viaje
  • No le hable nada más que en Cantonés
  • Y en los hoteles que estuve aprovecha para montar timbas en la habitación* y cargar cervezas y cigarrillos a su tarjeta de crédito.

    *Algo habitual en China, ver la habitación llena de tipos en camiseta jugando a las cartas, fumando y bebiendo cerveza.


Tenia miedo de que se enterara la señorita Katanga (le aconseja a mi padre que me eduque mejor y que me lleve al colegio) pero ahora se su secreto: ella también fuma.
