The joys of toy shopping!
Friends of ours were going back to NZ last week offered to take some things for us if we wanted. Of course no Samoan refuses such an offer, as it is my nephew Lio's birthday next month what better way to get his pressent there on time but with our dear friends. He likes toy cars, so off I went toy shopping at Lulu's hypermarket near us. Saw some really cool toys, funny I always walk right past those aisles but now here I was up and down inspecting the different cars and how they operate. I must admit I was loving it! heh heh! Brought out the child in me (or the child tomboy ha ha!) Finally I settled for the H2 model of the Hummer which is my favourite car at the moment. Oops the toy is for my nephew but no doubt he has the same taste as his favourite aunty(lol)! So I take the toy to the counter so they could check it out if its working! And yep that thing was working alright. Its those remote controlled ones. I was excited over the darn thing I grabbed the remote from the sales lady and played with the thing right there in the store. I'm sure they thought I was crazy. I got home plugged it in to feed the battery and before I wrapped it up, I had to try it again, just in case it broke (right, in the box:)! So there I was, zooming my nephew's toy car around the dining room! ha ha! My friend Ponita, thought it quite comical! Finally I sadly(for self) and happily(for nephew) wrapped the toy up knowing that he will fully enjoy it. Happy Birthday Lio.
