Lazy and An unusual perspective (This week's Photo Hunt themes)


Lookit!  Wow!  A giant plushy pink rabbit's inviting us to "Chill out on my tum!"  That was my reaction after dinner one evening at the Miramall when the friend I had gone out to dinner and I spotted the giant plushy pink rabbit sprawled out in the center of the mall's basement floor and the companion pink rabbits drawing attention to it!!

Should you wonder about the patterned oval objects around it: seeing as I took the photo around Easter time, I'm assuming that they're meant to represent Easter eggs.  Which is fine except -- talk about taking an unusual perspective to this Christian celebration -- there seemed to be an opening on the side of the rabbit from where the Easter eggs were popping out...and although I know that the Easter Bunny delivers Easter eggs, I think the usual idea is that it transports Easter eggs but doesn't actually produce them from out of his body!

From my perspective, the giant plushy pink rabbit at Miramall also is (was?) the rare Easter Bunny that encouraged people to chill out and effectively be lazy for a time.  I guess it's because it's the rare Easter Bunny that calls Hong Kong home and thus realizes that it'd be a real gift to many people here -- in this city whose residents tend to be the opposite of lazy -- to exist as a space where people could stop, sit down and relax for even a short time. 

And for those who wondered: I didn't go and personally chill out on the rabbit's tum -- or, for that matter, any other part of it.  On one hand, I just wanted to hurry home at that point in the evening.  On the other, if I had gone there and discovered that the giant plushy bunny was super soft, I might have been tempted to majorly sprawl out on that rabbit's tum... and then, if any other participant in Sandi's and Gattina's Photo Hunts had been there at that very moment, they would have had quite the unusual picture for this week's themes! ;b

Hi YTSL, lol! Great photos and a very creative take on the two themes. I love that big plushy bunny. More interesting than the usual boring mall benches. Now, if you "had" sprawled out on his nice plusy tummy, it would've made a great photo :)

Have a wonderful weekend.

Great photos and story. The plushy rabbit is interesting but I think I like the one hanging over the railing. That one would certainly catch my attention.

LOL, that's a cutie pie.

Mar said...

I love it!! and great story too. By the way, I usually do as you for the hunts, it's fun to go through old pictures :)

Happy weekend.

Hi Trekcapri --

Glad I got a laugh (or more?) out of you! Hope you have a good weekend too. :)

Hi The Indulged Furries --

Thanks for reading as well as looking. The thing with the plushy rabbit is that it's really pretty large -- and therefore more eye-catching! ;b

Hi ewok1993 --

I'm thinking you like the sight of that plush rabbit there... ;b

Hi Mar --

Thanks for looking and reading. And yeah, get the feeling we both have considerable photo archives... :)

Gattina said...

Lol ! That's cute ! and what a nice combination of both themes !

Ramakant Pradhan said...

Carver said...

Fun shots and narrative. I enjoyed your take on the themes. Happy Weekend.

Team Tabby said...

Thanks for your story, perfect for this week's theme. That rabbit certainly looks lazy, but comfortable.

Hi Gattina --

I'm happy you like the way I combined the two Photo Hunt themes for this week. :)

Hi Ramakant --

Thanks for visiting, looking and reading. :)

Hi Carver --

Thank you and happy weekend to you too. :)

Hi Team Tabby --

Actually, I think the rabbit's not that lazy but would agree with the comfortable idea! :)

Hi LifeRamblings --

Would you be tempted to go chill out on its tum? ;b

Sue St Clair said...

Hahaha!!! I would have been compelled to chill out on his tum just to be able to have the story :)

Hi Sue --

Alas, I was too tired after dinner (and work beforehand) that I couldn't deal with making the detour down to the basement of that mall! ;(

EastCoastLife said...

Hi EastCoastLife --
