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
