A Tale of Eyewear & Toy Guns

The thing about being on Cloud 9 is that a lot of things don't seem to affect you as they did anymore, don't you think? Well, at least for the time being until the effects wear off.

Anyway, just felt like writing that down even though its probably not going to have any correlation whatsoever with my post. Haha.

So, these past two weeks have been interesting, if not expensive. I told myself I wouldn't blog about these but then what the hell, it's my blog anyway.

So, first off, everyone in my family got a pair of Oakley sunglasses. Everyone. Including my brother. It started off during Haziq Shaharel's open house. That WAS two weeks ago, right? Anyway, it started then. My parents dropped me off and went to Giant to do the groceries. The day before we had a belated birthday celebration for my mom. We let her go wild in the Gardens. Hehe. Mama bought not too many items but all she had been eyeing for a while; flats, handbag, etc. She had also been wanting a pair of Oakley's for a while now but believe it or not, no Oakley distributor there.

So they went to Giant after dropping me off and did the groceries. Later on, when they picked me up, Akid was wearing a pair of Oakley 'Monster Dog' sunglasses. Mama didn't even get hers. What an Akid.

The next weekend, we went to SACC to do a quick grocery. Mama had yet to pray Zuhur so we went to the third floor while Mama went to the fourth. We went to the video store and met Mama on the way. So happens that the route to the video store would take us past the optometrist we collect our contact lenses from.

And whad'ya know, they carry Oakley. -- Gasps --.

Akid wasn't interested of course -- he already had his pair of Oakley. Abah & I said we'd catch up and took a quick look at the Oakley shades. A quick look turned to a few innocent trying on-s and Mama came back saying "Aha. So HERE'S where you guys are; trying on some Oakley's"

Mama said we could keep trying them on but refused to try on any. We all insisted and insisted and she finally gave in and tried on the pair of Oakley's she had been apparently been eyeing for a while now.

Mama had already made up her mind and knew which one she was getting. Abah decided shortly after. I took the longest time as not many of the models fit my facial structure and/or kept brushing my eyelashes.

I know some of you -- especially me female readers -- have thought "wow, a guy with long eyelashes," and I'm telling you, it can be quite tricky when choosing your eyewear. There I go, straying off topic again. Hehe.

Back to the topic, I finally settled on an Oakley Flak Jacket. My dad bought an Oakley Juliet while my mom bought an Oakley Liv.

This weekend, after double tuition classes, we went to have lunch in Subang Parade. Nando's. Yummy. Hehe. Afterwards, Akid wanted to go to Toys'R'Us but Abah didn't want to so we sort of parted ways. Abah & I went to MPH while Akid & Mama went to Toys'R'Us upstairs.

I've always liked entering MPH. I like the browsing through rows and racks of books and books and reading all the amazing stories they tell. What a cliche, huh? During the school holidays, I can just sit down, read and often, finish a book in under 24 hours. Maybe I should camp in MPH, huh? That way, at least I'll always have something to read. Hehe. I keep straying off topic, don't I? Hehe. Back to Toys'R'Us.

While browsing, Akid called. He was looking at some Nerf toys and started asking a question with a lot of information to process. I told him I'd be up there and Abah reluctantly followed. Hehe.

Now, before I continue, many of you must be wondering; "What the hell is Nerf?!" -- OK, maybe not so dramatically, but yeah. Nerf is a brand of toys -- now owned by Hasbro -- that makes mostly toys for boys. Hey, that rhymes. Anyway, they make things like toy guns, toy swords, footballs -- American football, not soccer -- etc. Its a lot of fun and they use a lot of foam so it doesn't hurt.

So, my brother was looking at a Nerf gun -- Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 -- and my mom said to me "Choose one,". I was sort of taken off-guard. I ended up with a sniper rifle -- Nerf N-Strike Longshot CS-6. At home, Akid and I spent the whole afternoon shooting each other with the foam darts. Hehe. Akid is horrible at aiming. He keeps missing me -- though only be mere centimeters but he still keeps missing.

Wow. That has to be the longest post I've written in a while. Hehe. So sorry if you found it boring...

That's all for now,

Au revoir
