We Adopted a Panda

... a toy one, that is haha :) It was love at first sight during our recent trip to Ikea and daddy thought there's no better place to "adopt" a panda if not in China. It was also inexpensive at only RMB29 (less than RM15) so mummy gave her nod of approval and the cute little panda came home with us. Introducing Le Le 乐乐, my new companion...

Soft, fluffy and cuddly :)


It all began here...


My new BFF


Now, this post is not so much about how much I love Le Le. It is where Le Le originated from that surprised us. It is easy to assume that Le Le was locally made. We thought so too but we were wrong. Out of the hundreds of toys that I have, I can safely say that 99% of them are made in China. Le Le falls into the 1% because she is made in Indonesia!



Isn't it ironic that something so China-related and bought in China was not made in China? ;)

  6. Very funny and irony.. When you go other places else and buy souvenirs, like Koala in australia, I noticed most of the time it's made in China........ Tak sangka, when you bought panda toy in China, it's not made in China!~ haha!
