as a reward for doing his kumon homework, i brought my 8 year old nephew carlo to the mall. i made him choose between buying film for his camera, or buying a toy. he chose the toy.

off we went to toy kingdom. he headed straight for the cars. i was a little surprised that he chose a sedan type car which cost less than a hundred bucks. but i wasn't about to complain. :)

he asked for fries so we ended up in mcdonald's. i was pleasantly surprised to find that twister fries are back! so i got twister fries for carlo and a cup of milo for me.

over fries we had this conversation:

carlo: tignan mo tong car ko, kakulay ni bogart o. (bogart is my box-type lancer. navy blue)
me: oo nga ano? pareho silang blue.
carlo: tita, ano ba ang ibig sabihin ng bogart?
me: wala. pangalan lang sya nung car.
carlo: hindi, yung bogart yung nasa loob ng ilong (while pretending to put something into his nose.)
me: (syempre gulat!) HINDEH! BOOGER YUN!
carlo: ah.

after which he went back to eating his fries.

toy car: P79.75
fries and milo: 64.00
booger conversation: priceless.

    Hey Jessie, thanks for visiting my site and for the comment you left. My honor if you link me. Kaya lang baka ma-disappoint ka lang. Technically kasi, on hiatus pa rin ako, may pinagkakaabalahan lang. Pero siyempre, di ko naman mapalagpas magblog about the trip, once in a lifetime lang yun e. Pero ngayong tapos na siya, baka hindi na naman ako makapag-update regularly.

    Pag naharap ni fafa Jay, link din kita ha. Thanks. :)
