Bzzzzzzz buzz bzzz bzz bzzzzzzzzzz.  I, Bumble, have be-e-e-e-e-en her-r-re with my firs-z-z-z-z-t hos-z-z-z-z-z-t for a couple of weeks-z-z-z-z now.  S-z-z-z-z-he s-z-z-z-z-ays-z-z-z-z to tell you that my acc-z-z-z-z-z-ent will be-e-e-e-e-come less-z-z-z-z-z and less-z-z-z-z-z notice-z-z-z-z-z-able as-z-z-z I get more practic-z-z-e at s-z-z-peaking people. 

We've done s-z-z-ome fun things-z-z but not as-z-z many as-z-z Szzu wanted --s-z-he's-z having surgery on her arm Monday and she's been bus-z-z-y as a drone lately.

Here is-z a picture of me with one of Su's-z drone.  You won't believe this but humans-z give names to their drones!  How does she ever keep up with them all, I'll never know!

This-z is the Crown Princess-z.  She was a bit afraid of me at first, as you can s-z-ee, but soon realized I am not a threat. 

http://inlinethumb58.webshots.com/18169/2710637770012154928S500x500Q85.jpg


My hostess-z took me with her when she went to something called the "dentist's office".  She couldn't take pictures while the woman and the man in a white coat were doing things in her mouth.  And some people think bees are loud -- that office was full of loud sounds, whirrs and buzzs, mostly!  At first, I thought it might be a swarm somewhere, but my hostess-z explained machinery to me.  It was interes-z-ting, but she was glad to leave.

http://inlinethumb48.webshots.com/17583/2468232780012154928S500x500Q85.jpg


My hostess-z decided it was time to introduce me to some of the other inhabitants of the house.  There is a swarm of three of these things in the house.

http://inlinethumb35.webshots.com/17378/2055783360012154928S500x500Q85.jpg
That one is the prettiest, I think, though.

That's all for now.  We're going to a school carnival, whatever that is, tomorrow night or Saturday, so we'll update again after that.

S-s-s-z-z-z-o long!

Ahhhh.... fresh air!!!

I was sitting in the mailbox when I heard this cricking noise. Melissa was rushing home from the rain and found me waiting patiently in the mailbox. *Buzz*

http://aycu13.webshots.com/image/39212/2005829953217408350_rs.jpg

It was raining pretty heavily so I just wandered around her place. It's a small nice quaint place and I love the atmosphere. Her cousin was visiting her too, and I got to meet her. *Buzz*

http://aycu16.webshots.com/image/39775/2005884768745268367_rs.jpg

Melissa had this funky dragon so I thought it would be cool to pose with it. I was afraid it would bite me because the teeths were sharp but it ignored me. Humph!

And like a bee that I am, I posed with some flowers her fiance brought for her. I think the flowers were sweet!

http://aycu38.webshots.com/image/40877/2005810556621303966_rs.jpg

I also met some shy and ever watchful koalas! They are so far away from Australia! And look! Behind me, you can see the rain! A little guy like me might get helplessly lost with that sort of rain.

http://aycu20.webshots.com/image/41579/2000517699057688045_rs.jpg

And I also met my fellow TV's friends! They were all friendly and asked if I knew Majed but I don't. *buzz* They were sad because they really have not heard any news from him yet. They also said I was one brave little bee to be travelling so far away from home.

http://aycu23.webshots.com/image/39622/2000573983214365611_rs.jpg

Oh, Melissa said she would bring me to her class next week! *buzz* I am excited!

Melissa was a little silly last night. She decided to go out and eat in a cafe near her place around 1 am. I found out it was a very *buzz* busy place. Does anyone sleep at 1 am?! Food was everywhere and you can see people around, talking, eating, drinking!

I hav not found any honey for me though :(

http://aycu04.webshots.com/image/40523/2004106381877879170_rs.jpg

http://aycu09.webshots.com/image/39488/2001620691549950968_rs.jpg

Night shots! As you can see behind me, there are people (possibly zombies like Melissa and her fiance) who wandered around to look for food!

http://aycu11.webshots.com/image/40450/2001680027444390860_rs.jpg

They decided to eat satay. It's thin slices of meat (chicken, mutton or beef) which is sweet and roasted while being stabbed by some thin and small stick for a short while.

They offered me a stick but I declined because it's a lot for a small bee like me! *buzz* And the sauce was a little spicy... and nutty.

http://aycu26.webshots.com/image/38625/2001616864386284657_rs.jpg

Ohh ... I might be going to the twin [Petronas] towers or KL Tower and some park tomorrow. Hopefully it is not raining tomorrow!

Hi again!

It's raining when Melissa and her fiance brought me to Lake Garden. I think Malaysia is one rainy country!!! However, I love the flower/herb garden that Melissa found. It was sort-of-under-refurbishing, but there were many things for me to see. However, the trip had to be cut shot because it was raining. *buzz*

http://aycu23.webshots.com/image/41222/2003491589568204884_rs.jpg

http://aycu29.webshots.com/image/40908/2001414705222634057_rs.jpg

Bamboo tree! My host told me that they make furnitures with that tree. Imagine that! *buzz* She also informed me that they make fishing rod with bamboo. However, you would not believe it when I tell you that she has this bamboo which she stores all her spare coin in it! It's rather pretty - appearently, the design was handcrafted by ethnic tribe from the state she originally comes from. *buzz*

http://aycu31.webshots.com/image/42150/2003475351753323261_rs.jpg

I don't mind the rain much, I rather stay in the house when it happens though. *buzz* My poor wings!

http://aycu18.webshots.com/image/39897/2004178465397329541_rs.jpg

Check out that flower! That is a flower, which Melissa admits she has no idea what it is called.

http://aycu13.webshots.com/image/41652/2004134402135205793_rs.jpg

And now, I am posing with all the pretty pinks around me!

http://aycu11.webshots.com/image/42170/2004162759247660420_rs.jpg

See you later! *buzz*

PS: I have not met her classmates yet.

Well here I am back in the USA and it was a pretty fast flight from Japan.  Of course I didn't fly on my own -- I used a big jet but I got here before the glue on my envelope was dry!

As soon as I flexed my wings after I got out of the mail box I checked out the orchard.
http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3064.jpg
Being a pollinator I was quite attracted to the scents I was noticing around the yard.

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3065.jpg

Right next to the walkway were several daffodils.

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3066.jpg

I was eager to buzz my way into as many as I could -- its what pollinators do.

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3068.jpg
http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3069.jpg

and then I got a sniff of some very sweet smelling flower and darted into that one like it had me on a rope.

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3067.jpg

My host finally found me there and brought me into the house.  She said I will love it over the next couple weeks because the orchard is starting to bloom.

Posted Apr 28, 2008, 12:35 am
I am sorry I haven't been posting but I have been busy as a bee for the last week. I have been pollinating!  The tree I picked out was huge and I have been at it all week.

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3093.jpg

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3092.jpg

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3091.jpg

Today wourpet said I could move onto the orchard and let the ornamental tree alone.

In the Cherry blossoms I ran into some other bee's that were busy polinating too!

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3094.jpg

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3095.jpg


This is a cherry tree too but with pink blossoms.

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3100.jpg

I found a few early apple blossoms too.

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3099.jpg

Then when I left I checked back to see if I had missed anything.

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3102.jpg

And then I spotted this huge cherry tree in the neighbours yard.  I guess I'lll be back in a few days.

Tibipanda arrived today and met me and Snuggles.  I leave tomorrow for Miami so I took them outside to see what I have been doing.

http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r285/wourpet/Travel%20Toys/100_3127.jpg

I asked them to fly up into a big tree to help pollinate but Snuggles and TibiPanda climbed the tree instead.

I arrived in Miami already!! It's such nice weather here. 
Today we go to the farmers market in Homestead.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_4986.jpg

Look at all the nice selection.  It makes me feel very happy.  The bags hanging up there are Mexican spices.  There are a lot of Mexicans living in Homestead as farm workers so there are lots of Mexican restaurants and grocery stores here.

These are cactus leaves.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_4984.jpg

Lots of bananas!  In sizes from a foot long to as short as your fingers.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_4981.jpg

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_4980.jpg

These zucchinis look really interesting!!

We are in Miami, so naturally we have to visit the beach. 

First we see this white statue.  Only that it moves.  It gives us quite a scare, until our host tells us that she is a real person painted white to look like a status. 

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_4990.jpg

We find this alligator head in a souvenir shop.  Being a brave bee I go to inspect its teeth. 

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_4995.jpg

We then walk towards the beach.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_4999.jpg

Wow what a wide beach! 

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5010.jpg

And turning the other way we can see the buildings facing the ocean.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5009.jpg

This is the Atlantic Ocean.  Very nice beach indeed.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5018.jpg

Being Miami there are a lot of palm trees!  Here I am with my new friend, Groovy.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5031.jpg

Next we walk down to Ocean Drive.  This is a famous street that shows up a lot in postcards and movies, renowned for the Art Deco buildings.  Like the pastel cute ones you see here.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5026.jpg

And here's a famous landmark on Ocean Drive.  This house is where Versace, a very well-known designer (so I was told... I am not into fashion, you know...) once lived, and got killed.  He was shot to death at the door steps right there one morning when he walked home from breakfast.

Today we go to the Supercon, a convention for comics and animations.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5120.jpg

There are a lot of vendors.  This booth sells swords.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5048.jpg

The owner tells us that the swords sell up to $3000! And we are never supposed to touch a blade as it will permanently stain the blade.  I won't want to mess with a sword anything...

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5052.jpg

Here is a booth with lots of toys.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5055.jpg

And here's an aspiring artist.  There are lots of artists here selling their work.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5061.jpg

We see a lot of people dressed up like movie or anime characters.  Wow, it's like Halloween in summer.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5060.jpg

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5063.jpg

We meet some VIP!! Guess who they are?  They are actors from the Harry Potter movies!

This is the girl who play Tonks.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5088.jpg

And Seamus.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5091.jpg

Here is at the Q&A session.  From left, Collin, Tonks, Angelina Johnson, (one of the Qudditch players) and Seamus.  They are not the real names of course...  It was fun as the audience asks a lot of weird questions.

Today we go to a dragon boat festival.  In China, Dragon Boat Festival is one of the three major holidays, along with New Year and Mid Autumn Festival.  On this day, the villagers will hold races in boats and eat a special dumpling wrapped in bamboo leaves.

Today, dragon boat is a sport that is popular around the world.  The Miami race is held today and our host's team is participating.

It's a nice day to be out!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5204.jpg

I spot the dragon boats on the water.  This is a mini boat, which only seats ten paddlers.  The standard size you see in the US seats 20, and in China there are boats that seats 50 or even 100 people, two in a row!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5135.jpg

Here are the men teams loading into the boat.  They all look very strong!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5213.jpg

We watch the race from the bridge.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5152.jpg

There are a lot of booths selling different things. 

Look, some cute animal puppets!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5143.jpg

Yikes, scary looking walking stick!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5144.jpg

Wow!  A beautiful kimono from Japan.  The vendor tells us that it's a wedding kimono.  I think any bride will look love in it.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5148.jpg

Here are some pots made from coconut in the shape of Flamingo, a tropical bird popular in Florida (as a motif, not that you can see them anywhere except in zoos).

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5150.jpg

This juice stand is very pretty!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5158.jpg

This is the display of trophies for the event.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5161.jpg

Oh here comes the dragon dance. 

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5167.jpg

There are some stage performance: Chinese acrobats, martial arts, singing, and this one is a Thai dance.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5179.jpg

As it's a hot day, after the race, the teams have a water melon eating contest.  Ready?

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5225.jpg

It's really fun to watch!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5228.jpg

Our team, Puff, does fairly good.  Here are the trophies we've won!  We are really proud!

After the race, we help the organizer brings the boats from the race venue back to their training center.

We string the boats together and a motor boat tows them.  It's almost like a train!  The dragon head and tail decoration has been taken off already.

Look, there are the cruise ships at the Port of Miami.  Those ships are from Carnival Cruise.  They look really big indeed.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5292.jpg

We pass by a marina, where boats are stocked all stacked up.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5311.jpg

We see some jet skiers.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5319.jpg

Looks like we've arrived!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5321.jpg

Mission accomplished!  The seat we are sitting on is actually the drummer seat, where during a race the drummer will beat on a drum so the paddlers can be synchronized.

I realize I have sat in a boat.  But I didn't really travel anywhere.  So I wonder if I can say I have completed my mission as well?

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5327.jpg

I think Miami is a very beautiful place. 

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5331.jpg

Here they are moving the boats back into the boathouse and keep safe till next time.

Today I join my host in a BookCrossing meeting.  She tell us that BookCrossing is kind of like ToyVoyagers but instead of toys travelling around they send books.  I don't understand why books want to go sightseeing.  But apparently it is very popular.

Here we are with the books that want to travel.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5345.jpg

This bakery has a nice selection of pictures!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5348.jpg

And needless to say, a collection of pastries!  I want all!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5353.jpg

We put the books in a basket so patrons of the shop can pick up a book, and hopefully they will make a journal entry so we know where the books are now.

I am hitting the beach today!!  We go to the Hobe (pronounced Hoo-Bee) Beach in Virginia Key.

You can see the Miami skyline in the background.

It's weekend so a lot of people come here to enjoy the outdoors.  They just park their car, take out the beach chair, turn up the radio and sit facing the ocean for a leisurely day.  Some take along a barbaque grill or picnic.

It's probably hard to see in the photo but there are some people fly fishing.

Some people go kayaking in the ocean.

While others go bicycle riding.

We (Cliff and Floppers as well) climb the palm tree together.

I become good friends with him, as we are about the same size and both have wings. He doesn't like honey though.

I am getting ready to leave Miami but today we are going to visit a place with some flowers so I can say good bye.

This place is actually a fancy outdoors shopping mall called The Village of Merrick Park, in Coral Gables, one of the most affluent neighborhood in the U.S.  We didn't do any shopping there, but the place is very well tended and the garden is beautiful with lots of statues and flowers.

Hi this is Floppers, Bumble's friend.  I got to know Bumble when we stayed together at Tarepanda's place.

I am sorry we don't have news about Bumble.  We said farewell to him back in July, when he flew off to see Oksana in Russia.  I think the trip may be too long for our little friend to fly.  Maybe he takes a rest and forgets that he has somewhere to go.  Bumble is sometimes forgetful like that. 

When Tarepanda told us that Bumble did not make it to Russia, we are all very worried.  But the post office said that unless we buy insurance on our packages, they cannot trace it. 

We also go online and find out that actually there is a Missing Bee Phenomenon going on.  A lot of honey bees are missing and people don't know what happen to them.  Looks like it's a tough time being a little bee.

Dear Bumble, we hope you are just resting somewhere and one day soon you will continue your journey.  We miss you a lot and are really sad not to have new from you!
