Minion cereal and drink container - Nestle Koko Krunch


Haven't been trawling the stores for promos for a while since I started having an active lifestyle .
And how I knew that this item was in the market was pretty coincidental .
I saw a lady holding two sets and scurrying off with glee to her shoplot in town .
Thus I began hunting for it ....alas , I spent the whole of today searching high and low but apparently they were all snapped up !

Then just when I was about to give up , he helped me make one round and managed to persuade the merchandiser to give up 2 sets for us from an unopened box .

Xiaomi - Redmi 4A Ramadhan Promotion


When we went to the store , there wasn't any indication of the offer nor a poster up .
Anyway , we managed to get one cos the koochi moochi is so impressed with his previous one .

Now , what exactly is the offer you ask ? 


This .
A free 5000mAh Mi Power Bank .
Not bad lah if you ask me as he too uses a Xiaomi power bank which he is very impressed with .




If you're keen , you can either get this online from Lazada or if you're a retail shopper like muah , off the counter at Mi Home in Queensbay Mall , Penang .




As for the performance of the phone , well , let's just say this makes a great gift for your loved ones .

Location : Penang

Pirates of the Caribbean - Sparrow and Salazar on a plastic folder


Remember that bad blond gay guy from the Bond movie Skyfall ?
Javier Bardem ,
with all the hotness that he is , manages to shine in tandem with Johnny Depp in this latest Pirates of the Caribbean installation as the fearsomely unforgettable " Kapitan" Salazar .

So , yeah , we just finished watching the movie and lemme tell you this . The CGI is beyond belief , I'm sooooo impressed , that I had to constantly put my jaw back in .

 But I'm also glad that I asked if there was any freebie while at the ticket counter , to which the friendly guy responded by handing over this plastic folder over with a huge smile on his face !

Happy Meal - Transformers Robots in Disguise


Did you join the crazy crowds waiting to snap up Transformer toys at the local Toys "R" Us recently ?
I didn't but I made sure I took some trouble to get this for one of my loved ones .
And he likes the one and only Optimus Prime so much , it pretty much follows him everywhere !

GSC - Baby Groot figurine


Update : Just finished watching the movie and oh boy , this figurine is ( to me ) exactly like the Baby Groot in the movie right down to the sad expression ( watch it and you'll know why ) . 

Overall , Vol 2 clears up some misconceptions we may all have had with Yondu and Nebula . Sob sob ....so emo I tell you . As for the inclusion of Stallone and Michelle Yeoh in the line up , groan , please don't tell me if there is a part 3 , these 2 are playing bigger roles ? Not looking forward to stiff acting from both superstars . This movie is one where their presence is NOT wanted ! While I loved the ditzy Moth girl , Michelle and Stallone were so bloody annoying . Can't you find them so other movie to dip their fingers into ? Despite their brief appearance , these 2 really spoilt the magic !
( on the other hand , Stan Lee's cameos are always a delight to watch )

Earlier post :

Yup , I didn't get their huge Groot cup which my loved ones thought were a bit too large , in fact large enough to wash one's face in it , but Baby Groot , this one , I just had to get .
Great timing too , since I'm so into gardening now heh heh

My Melody Letter Set - 2017 Happy Meal


This could possibly be one of the biggest Happy Meal toys ever aside from the old Mother Hubbard Ronald Mc Donald shoe many years ago .
I measured it from base to the tip of the keeeeyuuuttt wittle wabbit's ears ...13 cm long peeps .
" Two please " I told the counter staff .

Milo - mobile drink station keychain


Isn't this the cutest ever ?
Did not get the much bulkier vehicle collection when they were out but this is just too much to say no to .

Ya , all of us have memories of the Milo van but while I think I'm old , I can't recall ever seeing this wheel station .

Fans of 
Chef Zam , will surely be as excited as I was when I first saw this booklet tucked behind the free gift counter .
 Of course , you'll need to purchase some Mission products first but it's worth it because the recipes are creative , plus the accompanying pictures are quite stunning !

Stylus free Samsung ballpen


Indeed I was very startled when I received this pen today .
Given away as a free gift , one would expect it to be lightweight and something you chuck to the back of the drawer after a couple of rounds of jottings .

Sanrio Characters and Transformers Robots in Disguise - 2016 Happy Meal


Regular readers will know how I have been lamenting about the quality of Happy Meal toys that gets from bad to worse with each passing year . This batch is no exception .

However , seeing how there are so many out there ( me included ) who will buy a cheaper priced Sanrio toy , well , you can't help but go out there and get one for yourself now can you ?

Week 1

The first of a 4 week series , if you drop this comb - toy , I am a hundred percent sure it will crack , thus try keeping it away from kids .

Milo and Nescafe magnets 2016


I'm one of those people who enjoys a cold cup of Milo straight from the beverage dispenser .
Somehow , the fountain action seems to make it taste better .

Long story cut short , that's how I ended up with this....

Pikachu mug by Meiji Thailand


Had to chug down 3 bottles of Meiji milk just to get this one cup . 
With such vivid colouring and almost perfect character representation , you can say it was worth the effort .

Happy Meal - Happy Policeman


Happy the mascot was introduced in 2014 and it got off on a wrong footing with kid reviewers . 
When it comes to this range of toys that have been just released in Malaysia , even though I don't like the faded red colour , I find it oddball funny to look at .

Turning the P & G ONG Zodiac glass bottle topper into a dangling charm


A good majority of us Malaysians love our lucky charms super cute . However the year of the monkey has seen some rather ghastly representations that are not appealing in the least . Cute ? Pulez lah hah . When it comes to what I have seen so far in Penang retail outlets , only Tesco 's cartoon monkey  makes the cut. The rest are meh , one cut out mascot along Kelawei , huh damn ass ugly and so scary to look at . 

So , I've been hunting and so far I absolutely don't like what I see . Those decor sourced from China sucks !
Until I had a bright spark moment after well...read on and you'll find out lah .

Recently P  &  G has been giving away zodiac glass bottles and I had to wait like around 3 weeks before I found the Monkey . If last year , the tingkat carrier was unopenable , this year , haiya , as luck would have it , they so phobia already with us achi achor kaupeh kauboo them , until jeng jeng jeng... if you are not careful ah , the lid for the glass bottle will slip right off and piang , there goes your pineapple cookies .

Ya , your kids will grin at you like this. You like meh ?

Not all bottles have this problem. The problem is , we have to take what the customer service gives us . Take back and exchange ? And find out the monkey is no more . Errr..nope . No thanks.

Mission - Malaysian Celebrity Chef series , 2015 recipe books


It is now 2016 , but only now have these recipe books made their appearance in my area .

When this happens , I sometimes wonder what the end retailers are up to . Why they hide these free gifts with purchase so long and only take them out loooooong after the promo period is over . 
Baffling . 
Anyway , there is a reason why I am featuring these 2015 books in 2016 .They are worth pursuing for the recipes themselves , the easy feel , overall layout , nice anecdotes and pictures included .

Doraemon jelly mould by Dr.Oetker


Sometimes , when I feel that a product is way overpriced and the main reason why it is moving is because of ...well, in this case , because of this jelly mould , I will wait .
