Trapped at Fun and Cheer

with every child's Birthday that falls on a school day, they get to celebrate in the class. And usually, the parents would be buying presents, not only for their kids but also for the whole class. Now I know why Kristine was so happy as she gets to have all the presents to herself. Unfortunately, this was not the case with Kaelynn.

We had headaches enough as it is and so, today, we decided to shop for hers months before the actual day. And what better place than Fun and Cheer. Of course, its a well known fact that everything is from China. Why they did not call the stores Made-In-China, I am not sure. they even had foreign workers. So, this place is 'cheap'. Although there are a lot of things that attracts you, be mindful of the quality and also, the prices as not all are bargains when you compared them with other shops.

This is a place which is more of a 'Cash
& Carry' and personal store in one go.
And all the goods were from China.

I kept telling and reminding them about
the time. But girls being girls, they went
nuts in there until they're almost late for
their swimming lessons. So, I had to use
the Toll to save time. Haih.

Even at RM2 per item on average, by
the time we saw the bill, there were
more than 40 items and well, it costs
us almost RM100.00. Then Kaelynn
decided not to have a party with her
class but in the house. This saved us
a lot of cash but meant more presents
for herself. Very smart, this girl.

We kept the things in the car until the next
day where everyone had more time to sort
things out. Everyone had their stuff.

I could not resist buying this lighter
right after Wife told me that she saw
them on sale at RM5.00 instead of
RM2.00 here. You can see how big
this lighter is, compared to a normal
one. Oh, the flames are big too. Ha ha!

As for me, I got a very big pencil case, maybe
its me but I felt that the make quality for this
is a bit inferior as the ones I bought ten years
ago, did not flex much nor bend at the slightest
stress. The hinges are held with thin copper
wires which comes off easily. Then again you
can't expect much for RM5.00

I chose this because it was big enough to house
all the 24 Faber-Castell colour pencls and plus
extra pens, etc.

Kaelynn helping me to put everything into the
case for test fit. After that, I mounted some of
the rubber foams in there to make sure the
contents do not 'colour' the case too much when
being carried around.
