Ears!!!!


Last Sunday being my Mum's birthday, I took her to Sandringham UK to visit the Queen.
Unfortunately Sweaty Betty was not there, and it rained a lot...but we had a fabulous time. She got to see where the Queen lives when she's there. It's very very posh as one would imagine. Silk wallpaper & such. Chandeliers & the like. For me, the stables & museum just check out this for a surfing wagon...

Hampstead friends

I went to Hampstead Heath on the weekend with my friends Joey & Ricardo. Excitement plus.
We stayed with our friend Vicky and her two buddies, George & Gracie. They scare me a bit because they're kind of bigger than me. But they were ok. I met a new friend. a polar bear who's gonna be famous. I kind of really liked him... He moves & everything, and he has the sweetest nature.
I can't seem to get any pictures in here yet but I'll try again soon.

Belated Christmas



Crikey it's been a long time coming but I finally got these photo's out of the camera.
Here's me in the most important place of all at Christmas time (no it's not in the manger). richard had to hold my hand for a while, it was a long way down.







The tree wasn't too prickly but it hurt a bit when Joey sewed my wings on.

You can see our glamorous soft furnishings (not). You'd never think anyone in the house was a sewer.

Viva Espana






Hey hey hey. I've been to Spain. Wow what a city is Barcelona. Not many chimps around though. But I did meet some very nice Aussie mates. Nadia & Mark.



















They bought me a beer at the Port where I was looking at boats to buy. Or maybe stow away on.



Went to most of the Gaudi sights. Boy I almost shed a tear when I saw that Sagrada Familia. And there were baskets of fruit that would make your mouth water. Giant sized strawberries. Mmmmm almost as good as those Spanish doughnuts called "Churros".






My bestest buddies Jo & Richard came with me to Barcelona. Joey got to meet the Queen of Spain. This is where she gave her talk all about something called micro credit. Maybe it's about fair trade & bananas. Anyway you can go and have a look at her blog

Holiday snaps

Here are some photo's of my holiday in Oz. Getting colder here in Norfolk England so it's nice to be reminded of hot days in the sun with good buddies.

The beautiful Squeaky beach at Wilson's Promontory National Park Victoria Australia. Where the sand squeaks when you walk on it.
Aunty Roxi and I bonded.

Heaven on Earth!!!

On the road

It got so cold in England just had to get away for the long awaited holiday in Australia. You can see me sitting in a bunch of snowdrops with a very cold bottom.
We left England on a very grey and damp day and were looking forward to a sunny Honk Kong and Macau stop on the way but when we arrived it was just the same as London - Yuk!
However it was most exciting as the pictures will testify. Our pal Maude was in great form and showed us all the exciting bits and pieces which I won't elaborate on until the pictures arrive. Problem is I put them on my phone but can't email them as I've got a Pay As You Go sim card here which won't let me do it.
Sydney was sensational also after a shaky start. We arrived at my pal Jim's house only to find out they were about to do a television makeover show there called Renovation Rescue and Jim and his partner Helen were being whisked awayu to a 5 star hotel in Tasmania ( like OVERSEAS ) and the house was getting a complete renovation. We soldiered on with our eyeballs covered in sand and hanging out of our heads and were saved by ANGELS OF MERCY called Sally and Marcus who are the most wonderful people and are kinda blood relations (well by marriage anyway ) WHAT A PAD like a cool Morrocan marble palace near the beach.

Whaaaaaaaaat

Look at this, what a name for a fashion shop! Maybe it was started by someone called Wang and their company was Wang and Co and they thought it was a clever abbreviation. Obviously not clever enough and not familiar with the slang side of the English language.

Groovy Footpaths

The footpaths in Macau are beautifully paved. Marble I think. Mostly just wavy lines, but outside the temple was this simple cross on the ground. Made you think of Macau's Portugese Catholic roots.

Cultural heroes

Well what do you know? These tea caddies were for sale along with incense, jewellery & the all important mobile phone cover, at the Ama temple. Faces of our time. Would Becks be proud to have such company? I wonder how Chairman Mao would feel being alongside one of the icons of capitalism & wealth.

Amacau

The beautiful Ama temple belongs to the goddess that protects the fishermen of Macau. The air was full of smoke from sticks of incense, if we had have been there a week earlier, we would have been deafened by fire crackers being let off. As it was there was still a racket every now and again. My friend Maude says the fire cracker paper was up to her knees in some streets. Human knees that is, if I had have ventured out, it would have been over my head.

More New Years

Around the beautiful Silk New Year decorations are lots of flowers and cumquat trees. Note about me in chinese on the fence says I (nternational) A(rtist) C(heekee) M(onkee)

More Food

And the food just got better ! This restaurant is called Fernandos and it’s spoilt me forever with it’s Garlic Prawns. This is me with Maude and her amour Suwan a most cool and lovely man also an artist and sculptor from Thailand. The blur over Maude's shoulder is Macanese monkey spirit who came to check me out.

Food

Chinese New Year

New Year is the Year of the Rooster. It was just a week ago so the town is full of these beautiful statues made from silk. Must come back for the next Year of the Monkey. Can you see the Roosters head ?

Macau

Posted by Hello

What a great place ! Here I am at the ruins of St. Pauls Cathedral which is at a high spot in Macau overlooking the other islands. See the big chook up behind me

Honkers

So here I am chatting up the chicks in Hong Kong Airport ( irresistible is my middle name ) waiting for the ferry to Macau - the Las Vegas of the Far East. She didn’t have much to say but cooked a great noodle soup.

Heathrow

Boy, is this confusing for a monkee. So many planes to so many places but this one’s us Cathay Pacific to Honkers to see my artist pal Maude on the way to Oz. She lives and works in Macau which sounds very exotic to me and hopefully a LOT WARMER !!
