Mint Chip Monkey

Who wouldn’t?

Blog Update April 14, 2009

Filed under: Links — MintchipMonkey @ 7:00 pm



MintChip Monkey has been moved and can be found at – however within about 2 hours I caused an internal server error – so it’s not actually up and running at the moment… Yeh Yeh.

I’ve decided to stick with the same theme – I like the colours plus if I did anything right now – I’m pretty sure it would look rubbish. However I have managed to add the html elements that I wanted to the blog which is the main reason for the move. So as soon as this error gets sorted – we should be back up and running 😉

I have a whole bunch of new Links which I’ll do a dedi page for, but here’s a quick summary:
onigiri_fruit1BoingBoing – In it’s own words a directory of Wonderful Things, it’s an online magazine which blogs about random and strange things – a recent entry which I loved was ‘How to make adorable edible Totoro cream puffs’.
Totoro Cream Puff

onigiri_fruit1The ‘National Geographic’ Website which is always updating you on interesting things about the planet – such as, did you know that conservationists have discovered more then 2,000 new orangutans?

“It may seem hard to miss hundreds of fiery-orange apes—unless they live hidden in 2 million acres (809,371 hectares) of Borneo‘s rugged mountain forests. Combing through the island’s East Kalimantan Province—part of Borneo’s Indonesian sector—last December, conservationists discovered 219 orangutan nests.”

How cool is that? It means that 5% has been added to the current orangutan population and they are not as endangered as we thought =P But I always love it when a new discovery comes around – I wonder what will be found next? =P

onigiri_fruit1All Things Kawaii Blog

“The All Things Kawaii blog aims to showcase some of the kawaii, or cute, things on the web, including web sites, images, communities, companies, and more. This blog was created and is maintained by Valerie Franek, and is updated on a daily basis.”

onigiri_fruit1Danny Choo’s Portal to Japan: “…visit this site for the exclusive figure coverage direct from the manufacturers, photos and guides on living in Japan, Japanese subculture and the occasional stormtrooper dancing around in Tokyo.”

All that and a total of 13 blogs Which will all be able to be found on my links list as well as a dedi page 🙂

As for a daily update, I had to push a car up a hill on Tuesday! About two minutes from our house our car ran out of petrol – it was up to the non-driver (me) to push whilst Mr steered and braked us into a parking spot so we could run down and get some petrol. I found the whole thing pretty funny especially since I’ve been wondering the pass few days what would happen if the car would run out of petrol.

Anyho, Cya Soon! x
