Lazy (This week's Photo Hunt theme)



This week's theme was one of those that got me wondering whether I could participate in the Photo Hunt this time around. This is not least since I currently reside among a people who famously fall more on the hard working end of the hard working-lazy equation. While leafing through my photo archive, however, I got to thinking of the saying "as lazy as a pig"... and of it being so that one of Hong Kong's favorite (fictional) sons is an animated pig called Mcdull.

The star of three films already, including the award-winning My Life as Mcdull (2001), Mcdull also has spawned a chain of stores called McQuarter selling Mcdull related items (plush toys but such as umbrellas emblazoned with images of Mcdull and his friends too). And as it so happens, it was through the window of one of these shops that I conveniently (and lazily?) snapped a picture of a sleeping Mcdull -- or is it McMug?! -- that I hereby submit as the best candidate for this lazy Photo Hunt entry that I can find in these here parts! :b

(I'm posting my Photo Hunt entry earlier than usual because I've got a Saturday that's due to take in two afternoon movie screenings and -- less pleasantly :S -- a morning dental appointment...)

Colin Campbell said...

Lovely shot.

BlurMommy said...

That's a cute piggy!

Carver said...

That's an adorable toy pig and great idea for the theme. Happy weekend.

Yen said...

Cute little piggy so lazy to walk around! LOL Nice take this week:) My PH is posted HERE. Happy photo hunting!~

Leslie said...

Ahh, a very clever way to do this week's theme. :)

jmb said...

No laziness in Hong Kong? I believe it! I was stumped for a while but finally found something in the archives. Have a good weekend YTSL, after the dentist anyway.

Randi said...

Hihi...what a lazy little piggy!
Have a great weekend!

Aileni said...

Sounds like he too successful to be called a Mug. All that success is tiring.

YTSL said...

Hi Henrick --

Indeed... and if I didn't have a cute horizontal Hello Kitty, I'd snap up that plush in a minute! ;b

Hi jams o'donnell --

Believe it or not, I find Mcdull and co to have even cuter voices! :b

Hi Julie --

You said it! :)))

Hi Colin --

Thanks! :)

Hi BlurMommy --

Isn't it just! :)

Hi Carver --

Thanks, and happy weekend to you too! :)

Hi Yen --

Yeah, I don't think it can walk; rather it just sleeps! ;b

Hi Leslie --

Have to say that this week's Photo Hunt did get me racking my brains more than usual for an appropriate subject! :)

Hi jmb --

Back from the dentist and the screenings. And yeah, having a good weekend thus far, thanks! :)

Hi Randi --

Lazy but cute, right? ;b

Hi Aileni --

Good point but all the same...! ;D

Dragonstar said...

He looks completely lazy! Very lovable, too.

I think Lazy Daisy stitch is called that because it's such a quick and easy (even lazy!) way to shape daisy petals and leaves. Good embroiderers fill in shapes with fine thread and satin stitch (which has a satiny texture.) I use thick thread and quick outlining stitches - born lazy!

Bengbeng said...

to answer yr question abt wat happens to the durians : as the younger generation gets more educated they move to the towns. the older generation gets infirm n have to leave the land. the durians are harvested by intruders n trespassers who oways arrive before we do. anyway since we r no longer taking care of the land as we used to do, the harvest is getting less including the rambutans, cempedak, nangka etc.

Baker Watson said...

He might as well just lazily lay around. With legs that short he would drag his belly walking around and it would take him forever to get somewhere.

Cute pig though, lol.

That little guy is just begging for hugs! Great take on the theme!

YTSL said...

Hi Dragonstar --

Thanks for answering my query on your blog re the Lazy Daisy stitch: okay, makes sense! :)

Hi (again) Bengbeng --

Hmmm... time to sell the family durian estate then? ;S

Hi Baker --

Good spot re his short legs, etc.! ;D

Hi Napaboaniya --

:)

Hi Marcia --

Yeah, a very nice night cap! ;b

Hi Sassy Mom --

Thanks and you too! :)

Hi Mimi --

Cute, cuddly, lazy stuffed toy. Yes indeedy! :)

Hi JC --

Isn't he just!!! :)

Mrs Mecomber said...

Funny photo! The pig looks lazy, and it makes me want to go cuddle up in bed and be lazy too!

I did Photo Hunters today, too! If you have time, pay me a visit and leave your link. :)

Enigma said...

A wonderful lazy shot! Looks soft too! Thanks for stopping by my site!

Gretchen said...

How cute!

The Social Frog said...

Very interesting :) Never heard of Mcdull.
Have a great weekend:)

storyteller said...

How cute is this!!! I love it and am delighted you ‘shared your process’ of arriving here. I struggled with this topic too … until creating my Camera Critters post this morning … so mine’s at Small Reflections for a change.
Hugs and blessings,

Annie said...

I loved learning about this cute little pig. He does look very lazy. Nice take on the theme!

pat said...

Oh, what a cute pig!

Happy Weekend.

RJ Flamingo said...

So cute! And lazy-looking... I've had days like that. :-)

Cheers!

YTSL said...

Hi Mrs Mecomber --

Bet the makers of that pig were aiming for precisely that reaction/feeling! :)

Hi Enigma --

Thanks but I think it's a good spot rather than shot. Had difficulty shooting through glass without getting reflections, etc... ;S

Hi Gretchen --

Agree! :)

Hi The Social Frog --

FYI, "My Life as Mcdull" and the sequels all are available with English subtitles. :)

Hi Storyteller --

Thanks for reading my text as well as looking at the pics! :)

Hi Annie --

The two comments above this one applies to you too! :)

Hi Pat --

Yep, and you too! :)

Hi RJ Flamingo --

Yeah, me too... :)

Jientje said...

Hope that dentist didn't hurt you!!
Great take on this week's theme!cdrnrrer

YTSL said...

Hi Jientje --

Well, let's just say that the dentist hurt less than I thought he would -- both in the pocket and also when fixing my tooth. So I'm not going to complain! ;b

eam said...

;-)

YTSL said...

Hi eam --

Teehee re your comment... except is it Mcdull or Mcmug?? ;b
