Saturday Shopping

With nothing better to do on a Saturday afternoon, we sneaked out of the house while Kaelynn was sleeping. Actually, she was sleeping so soundly, we did not want to wake her up. And since Kristine was already up, we took her along. Later, when we called home, she was crying as she woke up and were not able to find us, "Where are you? I am alone......"

Anyway, this was supposed to be a short trip as my Wife wanted me to get a new pair of shoes since the old one was quite worn. Not only that, that affected my feet and sometimes, I felt as if I had pulled some tendon/muscle there, which lasted for days. After that, it was time to go home but since we're nearby the new Carrefour at Tropicana City, I wanted to go there but wife decided to go to Tesco, which was "nearer". Anyway, with so much traffic, we decided that if we could not find a parking spot, we will have to go to Carrefour. Compared to Carrefour, Tesco has better selection of fresh veges. Luckily, we found a parking spot inside the building. I say luckily because, half an hour later, it was raining heavily and whole place was full of drivers looking for space.

Another reason why Tesco is so good
is that there are a lot of sample kiosks
almost everywhere. Its a great time to
try out stuff on the spot and buy them.
But wife did not let me by the new ice-
cream that has cruchy chocolates inside.
All through the evening, we fed her a lot
of samples. Maybe I can save money on
not eating dinner later........... ha ha ha ha

OK, so she took two full cups of Campbell soup, a bit of
vege flavoured juice and a cup of Kelloggs Frosties. But
she did not take the ice-cream, which I gave to Wife.

On the left is Tesco's version of Twisties; Curlys.
No, I did not buy it.

Because Kristine was a good girl, Mommy allowed
her to buy the Magic Camera. Its a slide show but
with an electronics twist: Everytime you press the
shutter button to advance the slide, a short magic
sound will be played. And throughout the journey
back to the house, you know-la.

Mommy also bought a set of battery operated fan.
Luckily, I had the foresight to buy the batteries....

Yeah, it was fun, seeing them playing with it for the first time
and also their reaction when the blade accidentally cut their
fingers. Still, it was soft sponge/rubber material.

Kaelynn's first reaction when looking for the switch and
also had her fingers "cut".

Unfortunately, she left it on for more than a few minutes
where the motor got hot and also the feedback current
melted the switch's (blue plastic part) contact points.
One nice toy destroyed within minutes. Sigh.

Yeah, she is getting better at
dressing up now.
