What Made My Monday

Last Monday, an online buddy from another site informed me of a sale in Toys R Us. He specifically told me that the Reservoir Dog action figures were on huge discount. These toys were originally sold at PhP1,000. A few weeks back, when I bought Mr. White, toy stores marked down the prices to PhP600. To beat the competition Toys R Us sold the items at an even lower price of PhP300.

When I bought Mr. White, I promised myself to buy the Joe Cabot figure. I thought that the chubby old guy could lend his character to my comic strips. Now that the prices were even lower, I figured this is a good time to buy. I went straight to Trinoma from work. I visited the Toys R Us branch but got disappointed. There wasn't any stock left.

I decided to go home empty handed. While on the MRT I was thinking how I really like that action figure. I concluded that I like it so much that I'm willing to pay PhP600 for it. So instead of going home, I decided to pass by Toy Palace in Farmer's Cubao. I'm was going to buy the toy.

I went straight to the action figures section and got a surprise. They were selling Joe Cabot for PhP300! And that's how competition just made my day.

Gusto ko mapanood yang Reservoir Dogs. Maganda ba? =)

Parang gusto kitang bigyan ng Gremlins ng toy. You like? =)

@dabo, it was partly luck. Before the luck, I waited. Had I been impatient, I would have bought the toy at a higher price.

I guess the same applies to other aspects of life. The right decisions mixed with luck turns out well.

yup, teddy bear yung nasa isang pic. :)

@mr scheez, hindi ko pa napanood yung movie. I wasn't even aware of such movie until I saw the toy.

Ndi ako mahilig sa gremlins eh :) I saw one that moves and sings(or make noises). I thought it was scary. What if bigla yun gumalaw sa gabi habang patay lahat ng ilaw? Waaah!

Mr. Scheez said...

Hehehe, masaya nga yun eh. Gagalaw sa gabi. Yeah I figured na baka takot ka nga sa ganon.

I was wonderin kung ano pa ang wala ka na doll/toy? Sarah Palin? =D

Niel Camhalla said...

Marami pang dolls na wala ako. Lalo na yung mga mahal tulad ng mga Fashion Royalty...

at mga props nila tulad ng piano :)

Alam nyo habang kinukunan ko sya ng picture last Monday, may nabubuong character nya sa isip ko.

My new characters are connected to the old ones in a telenovela-cheezy kinda the way. What can I say? Telenovelas have a big influence on my life. Haha!
