Waiting.

Sent Bonnie to kindergarten at 8.30 a.m. Rather late actually as she should be there by 9. Drop by a market to buy bread and coffee. After clearing the house a bit and put the clothes to wash, came online to check emails , checking on amazon and another book seller whether they have dispatched my orders. :) Waiting for my packages...

Both are something I bought as gifts. Seems like many people are starting to shop for Christmas now. XmasAll the shopping pamphlets I got today are filled with toys adverts. This year we are on a budget. :P Last year Bonnie's toys alone made a hole in our wallets. This year I'm going to make that much amount we spent on her to stretch for 6-7 people. LOL But then looking at the prices of the toys, and thinking about 5 other kids to buy for, hmmm.... will need more than that. This is why I like Aidil Fitri better. You just give 5 ringgit (about $1.50) to each child and they'd be happy. Oh well...

LOL... You got that right Syari! You Must need a huge sum to buy toys for many kids ya?

My parents did not practice giving 'green packet' Blindly and forbid us the children to receive any. But this did not mean that they were stingy, it was the contrary, though i only realised it much later in life. They would rather gave money to those who really need it.

Dyah, toys are really expensive these days even if cost of making them may not be that much. Very lucrative business this toy making. :D

When we were kids, thats what we look forward to every hari raya actually. :D Time to go collecting. ehehehe. But I won't let my kids do that.
