Move Over, Energizer Bunny!

One of my favorite pastimes is dancing in my bedroom. But I’m really embarrassed because I have two left feet that are always tripping over things. So I close the door, turn on my radio and shake my hips when no one is around.

But it’s a lonely existence. Sometimes I wish I had a partner to dance with… LIKE THIS RABBIT!:

Hook him up to your iPod (he’s USB port-embedded) and he’ll blast music from his built-in speakers and rock to the beat. With his long body and perpetual smile, he almost looks human. He comes in different colors and has friends — a monkey and bear — who’ll join the fun.

Imagine gathering a bunch of dancing animals and mushrooms in the same room. So as long as the music is on, it’d be a non-stop party!

Stuff it in the Bunny

The Trader Joe’s cashier always flashes me a smile whenever I hand him a Japanese eco-bag to stuff my groceries with. That’s because Japanese bags come in all kinds of off-beat shapes and colors. So imagine handing the cashier this lil fella:

I’ll guarantee, he’ll do a double-take and ask why you gave him a plush doll. Upon which you tell him, “I have a crush on you.” And he’ll say, “Really?!” And then you respond, “No, just kidding. Pack my groceries, please.”

A nylon tote bag – folded into the rabbit called Picnica – spreads over a foot wide, so you can get some medium-sized grocery shopping done while looking animal chic. And when you’re not shopping, Picnica makes for a great travel companion. Though don’t expect him to help you through the carpool lane.

If he’s sitting in the front seat, you’ll never forget to take him to the grocery store. So many times, I’ve forgotten to bring my eco-bag because they were stowed away in the back trunk. Such a waste.

Picnica comes in four different colors: black, brown, gray and orange. With a $45 price tag, he’s pricier than a real Peter Rabbit, but no worries, this one will do you a world of good.

Eat the Moon!

This month marks the season to get on your porch and gaze at the autumn moon. It’s a time-honored tradition that’s not only celebrated with song and poetry but also by eating foods strikingly similar to the full moon.

At McDonalds, you can sink your teeth into a Tsukimi (moon-viewing) Burger filled with a beef patty and a perfectly-circular poached egg.

At noodle shops, you can order a hot bowl of soba topped with a raw egg yolk. (Yeah, it sounds gross, but it’s good!)

Another moon-shaped food is mochi, a sweet, sticky rice-cake. Here’s a fun kitchen toy that helps you turn out mochi from scratch:

You start off by boiling a pot of sweet rice, a.k.a., mochi-gome. Then you use this machine to mash the rice until soft and smooth. Traditionally speaking, mochi is pounded into submission using a mortar and heavy wooden hammer. Though, I’ve tried it before and nearly had my hand smashed. Ouch~

This cute mochi toys takes the sweat out of making Japanese desserts. Now all you need to do is pull up a chair and enjoy the rabbit in the moon!
