"Could you be so kind to spare a cup of tea, love?
There's a bit of chill out this morning..."

Swipe said...

Absolutely bloody brilliant caption!

Abaniko said...

Is that a weird-looking fat rat?

hoop said...

At may Tea Time pa sila... hahaha :D

carlotta said...

wow super cute! nakita mo ba kung pano gumalaw yung tails nila? parang waves, napaka smooth hehe wala lang =)

snglguy said...

And it didn't even ask for nuts? Or maybe it was just curious at the Asian woman peeking at the window, hehe. :-D

dimaks said...

aw that's so cute visitor.. i might open the window and take her in :)

Javi said...

Squirrel bbq! I wonder how it would taste like. Kidding. :)

kayni said...

Cute! Beware! The squirrel might start speaking to you...lol.

Gypsy said...

Wil, siempre pa, and Brit habits, hehe.

Swipe, hehe, thanks. I thought of just posting the photo and inspiration struck the last minute. :)

Abaniko, hoy ha--I would NEVER take photos of rats, let alone invite them in for tea..

Hoop, o ba, with the little pinky up in the air while holding the teacup, o sey...

Carlotta, yup, very graceful..I love to watch them so it was a special treat when one decided to come closer. :)

Snglguy, I dont think it was curious about Asians, sobrang multi ethnic dito sa area namin, I wouldn't have been surprised if Ms Squirrel asked for chai instead! ;)

Dimaks, I was afraid I might scare her away so I just lightly tapped on the pane until she turned and looked, hehe. Hey nice to have you back!!

Javi, hehe..which reminds me, we will have rabbit stew this sunday..hehe. Thanks for dropping by!

Kayni, mukhang naloloka na nga ako..hehe.

hi gyps,
did you finish all your readings and essays?
it must be hard to concentrate on school when there is a whole new world waiting to be explored.
i have lot of things in common with you when it comes to your favorite things in life.
like reaing a page turner late at night,
vietnamese style coffee with condensed milk (but i quit nga)
clean fresh sheets,
reminiscing about camp life.
It is funny, but even if i was only there for two years, it is very memorable to me.
(not to mention, that is where i met my husband--so near and dear na rin)
i was telling annamanila that it is too bad that you will not be in manila for the holidays, because i would have loved to be able to meet you.
(but then again, you will be in Ireland, so you can't beat that)
Sige gyps,
take care-
Chesca

Annamanila said...

You have a terrific imagination, gypsy! But she does look like she's trying to tell you something.

mitsuru said...

whoa, gypsy in wonderland...

Major Tom said...

They're to me one of the cutest creatures in the wild; but I heard they could be pesky as rats sometimes.

Or are they really?

paolo@khoops said...

aww.. it's like Gypsy in Wonderland. :P

Gypsy said...

Hi Chesca, do you remember those vietnamese sunday markets, I used to have my coffee there plus hu tieu noodles, ay nakakamiss!! Its too bad I will miss seeing you this christmas!! But I'm sure you'll visit at other times too when I am back. :)

Anna, either she is really trying to tell me something or I am slowly going bonkers with all the studying..hehe.

Bill and Pao, if I see the Mad Hatter tapping on my window and asking me to join his famouse tea parties, then I will be convinced that I have fell down that magical rabbit hole...;)

Major Tom, I haven't noticed them being pesky but that would only make them cuter, don't you think??

vernaloo said...

what a cutie hehe buti di nagsalita hehehe

lazarus said...

muntik ko ng di makita ang squirrel. It's like he blended with the color of the surroundings.

rowena said...

hello gypsy, i would love to invite that squirrel too, ha ha ha...
