The Parents & Kiddoes Gathering

OK, maybe I should not call it a gathering or even a TT (Teh Tarik Session ala AutoWorld NMT Forums). I should call it .....NMT Kid's Party! Yeah, that's it! A kids party where all the kids get to bring their parents along to eat all the fries, burgers and softdrinks as much as they can. Times have changed.

Anyway, although it was scheduled at seven in the evening, some of them were already there. And it was pretty cold due to the rain. Then again, this place was always too cold for me no matter whenever I went there. Still, moments later when everyone showed up, the place was warm. Warm with friendship.

In the old days, we would gather about in mamak stalls in the late evening, sipping teh tarik, Mikos and toehr beverages. This was indirectly, a way to see who is who since the Forum is quite faceless where nicknames are concerned. And also, this is another reason why you do not give yourself Forum names like Mickey Mouse, FatJack or other embarassing or unpronounceable names. Anyway, this is how the "TT" session came about. And you can call it a gathering too, if you want. But this time, its a bit more special because not only was this held during the Chinese New Year where other Forummers came back from HongKong, China, Ipoh, etc but also, this time, kids were involved. And everyone was amazed at how big the kids have grown since they last saw them, etc. But this is a nice time as there are things you can talk about without eMails or using the Forum, just plain natural face to face talk.

And so, at the gathering, everyone who is familiar on the Forum was
there. You can also see the kinds of food they eat in this picture.

I thought they were banned from the place but halfway through,
this shabby looing watch salesman fro Hong Kong came and
convinced a few Forummers to buy them.

Asking about the warranties, he claimed that as long as the
customer reads and understands the contract this thick,
there should be no problem. You can also study the manuals
in DVD-ROM form which, alas, was also this thick.

Meanwhile, in the danger roo....... er, play area, the kids are getting busy
knowing each other, fighting, pushing, biting and doing other things that
kids do, it was a matter of time before the heat generated in that room
was sufficient to power a few cities for minutes.

A brief moment to recharge their energy.
Its amazing how 2 cups of Coke and a few
strands of fries canpower kids for hours.

This unedited photo best describes the atmosphere inside the play area.
Its even enough to convice a parent to be to take a U-turn with the Wife

Again, there is this mysterious person who keeps
taking incriminating photos so as to bribe the kids
in later life. You can reconise this person via the
barcode tattoo located on the upper left armpit on
the thirty-eight hair. But you would problems taking
her to Giant to get a scan on the cades. It should
read, "Ham Kai Tau Sar Pau RM1.59"

See the sweat on him? They really play hard. By the
way, he's decribing the mountins of stewed brocoli
his Dad force him to eat since he could walk.

Kristine's hair is now really really wet and she does not care. Luckily,
we dressed her up in pants and not skirts.

Finally, someone caught the rabbit. Yes, I
can describe this akin to a rabbit farm too.
