I used to think stuffed toys were for kids, but some time in the ’80s, I was toured around designer Paolo Basa’s home and saw a cute little teddy bear on his beautiful bed. It looked like an old bear that had been loved for years.
I happen to love bears. So when I saw this cute little bear at the Jean-Paul Hevin chocolate store in Hong Kong, I just had to take it home.

The bear sleeps on my bed. Add this to the Peninsula Bear I got in Hong Kong in 2005, which the boys claimed as their own.

Yay for Peninsula bear

Last week I found the agnés b. bear at the IFC mall in Hong Kong. I had to have that too. So cute!!

Then I took a picture of them together and I got scared.

I’m scared because when I saw the bears together, I thought, I don’t wanna be one of those people who collect things like clowns. Yikes!! No offence, but the idea is so Kuya Germs.

No offence, but I’m scared of people who collect clowns or figurines or thimbles or refrigerator magnets.

Yikes! I just saw the Cathay Pacific bear. Stop me! #afraid!!

when i was about 3 yrs old my parents took me to the old fiesta carnival in cubao. there was this midget clown who looked mean and scary i had to hide behind my dad. but that didnt stop the freaky clown from chasing me. i was like screaming and running as fast as i can. the other people were laughing, they thought the whole scene was cute but i was so terrified. thank God my dad picked me up. kuya germs’ clown collection just creeps me out….. nginiiig!

Figurine collectors remind me of that one episode in CSI with the psycho who makes tiny wax figures.

If one can have nine bears (five of which are different Starbucks bears), then you’re still ok 🙂

Nice to know that I’m not the only one who’s dead scared of clowns. I don’t like ’em as living or non living things. They give me nightmares for days s when I see one in birthday parties. Bears though are a different story. I love them too. My favorites are the Starbucks Bearistas. What do you think of them?

Dear Chuvaness,

Will you hate on me if  I collect combs from hotels? (Suklay lang naman, di na kasama ang ibang toiletries)

Love,

I’m scared of clowns myself ever since a relative unthinkingly made me watch Poltergeist as a 5-year old. Never again.

As for collecting, the only things I think I collect are books. Ay, and dust din pala. 😛

I think so too! That’s why my bookshelf is color-coded. My husband hates it though, he says he can never find anything.

I’d buy that Cathay Pacific bear in a heartbeat. I still collect stuffed toys even when I’m already in my mid-20s. I think they’re awfully cute. 🙂

Clowns are creepy! I have a friend who’s terrified of clowns and someone gave her a magnet that says, “Clowns are people too. People who want to hurt you.” Asar lang! LOL

Eeeeeek! Those clowns are beyond creepy! So many of them! Waaaaah!

And four bears is hardly a collection we can call creepy or weird, Ms. C. I think up to 10 and you don’t line them up on your bed or on some shelf in your house, you’re pretty safe. Haha.

Clowns scare me to death especially the seated ones with rotating heads. I do collect ref magnets of places that I’ve been so maybe some people find that weird or tacky too. Haha.

Get the Cathay bear. So adorable.

I’m scared for my life of clowns since seeing the movie Stephen King’s IT as a kid! Kahit ngayon, I’m still scared. Clowns are just plain creepy. On the other hand, your bears are so cute and cuddly! Makes me want to buy one for myself. 🙂 [Reply]Topaz Horizon Reply:October 19th, 2011 at 10:34 AMMe too. But I didn’t watch the movie.

Me too. But I didn’t watch the movie. I read the book when I was around 13 and diba the monster-clown-alien lived in the sewers? So I couldn’t go near a bathroom for a week. I didn’t shower for a week!!! If I had to do my business, laging nakabukas ang door! And until now, more than 20 years later, I cover drains and am very quick to use the bathroom and can never ever go near clowns (except Ronald McDonald). So I don’t like kiddie parties with clowns.
