.. where Angel (ice-bear) meets ice figures

Hello folks! It’s me, Angel, here. Ikea is still busy doing other zings..
so, instead, me, an ice-bear. Luckily for me (and Ikea i guess) I have new Ice pics! As you may have read, ice is grand! So i read in the news about this grand park with ice figures, to check it out immediately. And what do i find! Very nice ice! Oh, and i took photos, as i said:

As you can see here, a hedgehog. Quite well crafted and recognizable in shape. Loooove the dots on the sides. Someone has stuck a coin on it’s forehead.. lame.

A wolf actually. Fishing – couldn’t tell, but i read it on the stand. I guess those on the side are fish-heads. Big ones! And mind you, it’s not a glow-wolf, there’s just a lamp behind it.

Magnificent fork! Reminds me of a sketch by Monty Python, also about a fork, evidently. I have yet to see a fork so massive though! Almost as high as a neighboring Opera house, as you can see!  Very well lit too! Did I mention there was a knife also? There was a knife also! (but smaller)

And here’s one of my favorites, a Bird! Ice Bird, not Larry or Angry or any of those. Could be an eagle though..

There were some others too, like a frog or averyniceblockofICE – at least that’s what it looked like. All very very much fun, so highly recommended to go and check it out. They are in Tammsaare park right now, but i suspect they might melt after a while. OR i might go and nick one or two.. Well, that DOES sound like a good plan, when I think about it..! So I have to go now then, best Fishes and stay cool!

.. where Ikea goes to Tallinn Zoo!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

i wanted to tell u about my trip to Tallinn Zoo! Finally! but, i have to tell u that they don’t have a giraffe i’m afraid. that’s basically the main reason we have not been to Tallinn Zoo yet.

so this time, because the weather was REALLY nice we went to check it out. and i have to tell u i mostly wanted to see ice-bears and maybe some wild cats. i can tell u right now that we did not see any wild cats, because of the weather. it was too hot for them, it seems to me. but we did see one ice-bear! Polar bear, in fact:

his name is not Angel, if u ask me. i think his name is Nord. but he was quite busy walking around so we did not get a chance to ask… again, i did not get a really good fotograf because my friend Sipsik had to go to see some birds. but i wanted to take some pictures for Angel. he could not come because he was hiding in the bamboo basked since last time of hide-and-seek, hehe!

but here’s some more animals we did see. a large BULL elephant for example up here. and down here, a bunch of LLamas. sleeping, mostly.

then there were also some other animals but i did not get really good fotografs because they were hiding. This one llama told me that usually they have this big game of hide-and-seek on Saturdays, so most probably half of them were out there playing. it sounds reasonable to me. so we’ll have to go maybe next time again. or, like my friend Undu, he likes to follow the cameras. but i did get to meet an Angry Bird, hehe!

other than that, it was all good fun afternoon. naturally we also had some ice-cream (my favorite) and when everybody else was muching on theirs, i got a chance to take a litte sunbathe, jei!

what about your good self? did u visit some Zoos lately and, most importantly, did u meet giraffes? let me know in comments! have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Angel (ice-bear) talks about his favorite thing..

.. which is: ICE!

oh, hello there! It’s me, Ikea! but this time let me introduce to you my friend Angel, the ice-bear! well, in the Great Book of Wild Teddies And Other Animals, ice-bears are sometimes called polar bears. I don’t know why, actually. Because Angel has never told me anything about such thing as “polar”.. But i know one thing for sure – he loves ice!! so, that’s probably why he is called an ice-bear, it seems to me.

Actually, we know of his attraction to ice for quite some time now. probably from day one, when i met him – when i think about it. it seems to me that it was the icicle that he was chewing on that gave him away. but of course we could not be so sure.. until one day of course when my friend Aura (who lives in Tartu) found him building an igloo on the pond!! unfortunately no fotografs from that.

it was quite easy from then on, because most of the time when it gets cold outside, Angel is pretty much gone. that’s usually then when he is building the igloos or just having fun in the ice. like for example this weekend! so this time, i sneaked out after him and took some fotografs. here they are – with Angels comments.

so hello, here this is me, Angel. as u can see, i like ice. a lot! Here i have found a fun iceberg just to sit on and relax. this is very cozy ice, as you can see for yourself.

this, on the other hand is not so nice, because of the colour. however it is not what you may think it is! its just regular ice from the sea. the color is brown because it is meant for brown bears. heh heh. not really, it’s a fun joke that we have with Teddies. the brown colour comes from seaweed and other plants. however, this ice is quite funny because it is not slippery. well, not for me it isn’t.

this is called a three o’clock roll. this is something that i do usually around three o’clock during the daytime every day. it’s just a fun thing to do, especially on a public ice like this one. this time i also got lucky and had very nice white snow on top of the ice, so its all clean and white afterwards. and yes, it is a public ice, the fishermen are all crowded in the background. ask Ikea!

so here i tried to build an igloo too. not a gr8 success i’m afraid. it’s because of the wind and the new brown water/ice that somewhat ruined the idea. better luck next time i guess..

here, this is one of my favorite litte ice-bergs. i just sometimes come and hang around here and look at my reflextion on the ice. it’s quite facinating. there’s also a little bit of Estonian flag in the background, if u look hard enough. so, a gr8 fun place to chill in fact.

so, that’s my friend Angel and his Ice. let me know what u think of ice!!? Thanks for stopping! Have fun and cu l8r!
