Mahalnyeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

It's gonna be a WITCH....

Hehehe....we went to Ikano last night to look for Nia's Halloween costume....as mentioned in my previous entry, that I planned to go to Toys'r'Us to get the outfit....but a colleague of mine kat office ni ade mentioned that there's also another shop at LG Ikano which is also selling costumes...so we decided to just go and see what they have....rupanya, kedai yang dia mentioned tu, is the Balloon Party Shop....the one next to the BBQ shop (dekat stretch yg connect Ikano with IKEA)....so we went in and saw that they have a variety of collections....I was getting all excited, cos I noticed that they have the Minnie Mouse costume exactly the same as the one that I saw on the Internet tapi the website does not ship outside of US....dengan teruja nye tengok the price tag.....and my jaw went like this.....

My oh my....MYR420 for a Minnie Mouse costume?!!! apakah ini woiii?....so bloody expensive?....on the internet, the website in US is just selling it for USD$25....even if they were to ship to MY, I don't think the cost will reach MYR420?!!...sangat la mencekik darah ok....so, put that back on the rack.....next tgk Mermaid custome.....another whoooppping price tag....MYR380.....goshhhh....terus simpan balik and ajak hubby to get out of there.....its just too expensive...kalau takat nak pakai sekali je....harus la tak worth the money at all.....sorry Nia, you cannot get the Minnie Mouse outfit, b'cos Mummy and Babah is still slaving in Kerang to put food on our table everyday....if we are Royalties or some petroleum Sheikh family....then, that's a totally different story....^_^...


Makanya, pergi la kat Toys'r'Us....and we found a few selections of Halloween costumes...ade Doctor, Thomas the Train, Policeman, Mechanic, Pumpkin Baby, Dracula Cape, Skeleton Body Suit......and we decided on the Witch Costume since its the cutest one for kids and it even comes with a witch's hat and a tiny broom (which looks more like a feather duster rather than a broom...ehhe).....I also bought some glitter face crayons to do some face-painting for Nia nanti....now ni yang rasa a bit susah sikit...you see, I'm no good in arts....art class is my least favourite subject in school....why? because I'm not artsy, and I always get a "C"...ahaha....in simple words, I am definitely no where close to Picasso....so, painting Nia's face is gonna be one big challenge for me....

In preparation, I will need a lot of practice to get this done....so, pagi ni google-d for some picturs that I can use as reference and I managed to get these...



Kinda cute eyy....So, tonite I think I will need to start practicing on Hubby's face dulu...ahaha...baru la boleh buat on Nia....harap-harap menjadi la....as a back-up plan, I'm also searching for any shops that offers face-painting as one of their service....anyone has any idea where I can find a face-painter in the area of Kota Damansara?...Please do let me know.....till then, happy practicing to me....hehe...and yes, I will try to upload some pictures of my 'master-piece' with Mr Hubby nanti...
