Awkwardly sitting cats

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Friday 18 July 2014

This is my photo project, The Bonnie Days. I started this adventure when my daughter was five weeks old as a birthday gift to my husband.

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Websites on Saturday 10 November 2012

As this Tumblr blog’s description goes: ‘You know when a movie has a flashback and you see the character as a kid? Sometimes that’s awesome.’ Yep, this blog has 30 pages of evidence. Our favourite’s the one of Jean-Claude Van Damme in Bloodsport.
