duckMy name is Apex 365. I lived with many other Apex ducks waiting for the day when I would be released and start my new life. Apex hotels give away a duck like me to every guest who stays with them. I was at Apex Temple Court in London and looking forward to my new adventure. Each duck is charged with a mission to win over a new owner and then have a fun photo taken of themselves. The picture is to be displayed on the Apex Hotel Facebook page. The most ‘fun’ photo wins a stay at an Apex hotel. (I really want my new owner to win it. Why? Because she’ll get another duck and then I’d have a friend to keep me company in the bathroom.)

Imagine my excitement when I was finally removed from the duck compound and taken to room 365. There, I waited while the room was prepared and I was left sitting on a white towel for my new owner to arrive.

It wasn’t long before I heard the door open and someone arrive. I adopted my cutest ‘let’s be friends’ look and waited for the person to come into the bathroom. Finally, just when my jaw was aching with smiling, the bathroom door opened and a lady let out a squeal of pleasure. She fell for me.

I was dragged out of the bathroom and into the bedroom where she took a photo of me to show to her friends. Then, she carefully put me on her bag so she wouldn’t forget me in the morning. Bingo!

To cut a long story short, I ended up back at her house and before long was bundled into another bag. I was going on another trip. Brilliant! So, here’s more about my holiday in pictures. Which one should I enter for the photo contest?

So, which photo do you think I should enter for the contest? And, more importantly, what do you think I should be called? After all, I really don’t think I suit Apex 365, any more.
