The Adventures of Zombo

People associate summer with a lot of things like refreshing halo-halo, ripe mangoes and trips to the beach. But what I love the most about this two-month break is how it inspires the funniest "family projects".

This year, my brother started things off by deciding to document our trip to Phuket through the experiences of Zombo - a plushie doll of a corporate man turned into the terrifying undead.

My brother made Zombo by painting his body on some cheese cloth and stuffing him with random scraps of cloth.

Yet, while Zombo was technically a "doll", he couldn't seem to fit in with the others.

So he spent most of the trip on his own while we took turns babysitting him.

In the end, Zombo didn't really scare anyone - but he did attract a lot of long stares and a few muffled giggles.
I guess we'll see how it goes in his next trip :)

More photos of Zombo's adventures here.
