In the morning , went down to town for lunch and also some shopping. Had lunch at Wisma Food Republic then headed to Taka and OG Orchard... after which we headed home....hehehe




Lego at Takashimaya was having some sales on certain Ferrari sets.. the huge 1:18 scale is $149 usual $250... and the Ferrari F1 set is $80... pricewise ok....







In the afternoon today, had some time to repack some of my tomica boxsets...on posting these pics.. Yeo from found me.. and had me as a featured collector... i am so honoured.. hehehehehe....

ok abit of Tomica history of me, i started these collections 4 yrs back... when the price of tomicas in singapore was $2.50.. and over the years , the price has risen to $4.95. I also am into Matchboxes / Hotwheels / Ferrari...hehehehe... oh well, over the trips to japan , i have also bought quite a bit of stuff from Japan various stores and occasionally , my bro who is a pilot flies there too...

Decided to use a japan auction assist site.. to bid for items on Yahoo JP... so far of all the Japan Auction sites that are avaliable...i find to be fair... its good as long as your items are above 5000JYP as their fees are ( 800JPY + 8% of auction price )..and shipping at cost by EMS to you..

End of school holidays..

the boy knows his school holiday has ended.. well anyway todays weather was perfect after last evening's thunder storm for a day out in town... whooo..

Rachel's runny nose also has stopped and she was up and hopping about... thank goodness. The daily intake of Vitamins / cod liver oil has somehow helped to build and speed up her recovery.



went to OG Orchard to shop after lunch and also to get the New OG cards for Sis-in-law and mother-in-law. And with the F1 fever in town , every toy department store has a little F1 corner where kids can have a go at the cars. Rachel was having a go at the F1 track at OG, and would not allow Marcus to play. The Girl... hahaha







Vodaphone F1 team was at Paragon displying their F1 replica car that will be used in the upcoming race... so snapped another pic.... F1 race Singapore will be held end of Sept, and it will be the first night race for F1


Managed to get some new Hotwheels at Takashimaya and a T-Hunt Plymouth.. and also found the VW drag bus at TRU paragon.

Saturday and its raining now... very heavy... will be a cooling night to sleep ... luckily did not plan to go out as the girl was having flu. Brought her to the doctor in the morning to Thomson Medical Center. Met my "yi po" on the way to the clinic. Did not notice them on the bus till i turned back and see who was on the bus. The girl was so quiet on the way to the clinic. Anyway doc say its just a common cold, nothing serious need no antibotics.

After the doc's , took a cab back and by the time i got home it was already 1 pm.. the damm clinic was so packed. After the kids had lunch , i went down to town to collect my glasses... yearly pilgrimage to the optician to make sure i used up fully my medical vision claim... cause the girl spoilt my frameless glass a month ago..

so coincident, the kids both when they were young has spoilt some items
- Boy , Canon camera 2 MP set, poured milk on it , my glasses
- Girl , my glasses

only snap a photo of the kids... hehehe.. if you noticed, i have not kept the luggage that was used for the japan trip.. its still full of items... i dunno where to keep them...


Also had some time to tidy up and consolidate all my Tomica Limited cars... i think there are still some lurking around somewhere....oh well i found most of them anyway.. you can see that some of the cars i only has one as i could not find extras for those.. most of the single ones are bought from JApan the other time and recent trip.


i have also completed the whole seris of Ferrari from the local 7-11 stores. Kudos to those store which allowed me to buy the cars without spending the min $5 required... really silly... i dunno how many cars will the stores ,which do not allow to buy without spending any dollar, have left over stocks in the end. In singapore the collector community for diecast cars are very small.

After the photo taking , we took 143 a double deck bus which will bring us to the Chinatown area , where my optician's shop was.
