What Tiggers Do Best

My very dear friend who grew up loving Winnie-the-Pooh once gave me a Tigger figurine, and it now sits on the shelf next to my work table. Since it is the year of Tiger, I thought to share with you this one and only one “Tigger” in the Hundred Acre Wood that has the audacity never to call himself Tiger, but “Tigger! ” (T-I-G-G-E-R!)

TCG 2022 February Newsletter - Tigger

Amongst all Pooh’s pals (Eeyore, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, Tigger, Owl and Rabbit,) I am most taken by Tigger; mine has a French name, “Tigre.” Perhaps because Tigger or “Tigre” is quite a unique character, he has a larger-than-self personality. He is self-assured, filled with great energy and optimism, mischievous, but always well-meaning. The chaos and trouble Tigger gets himself and his friends into often add excitement and laughter to life in the peaceful Hundred Acre Wood.

Tigger likes to say: “Bouncing is what Tiggers do best.” Despite all the challenges we faced in the past two years, I hope Tigger, our English tiger’s philosophy will inspire us for this Chinese Tiger Year. While we may not have had the best hand of good cards in recent years, we can certainly try to bounce back by playing our hands well!

Here is the adorable one and only one Tigger if you have not met him yet:

Gong Xi Fa Cai, Happy Bouncing & Roaring!
