Big boy's toys

The first thing I hear when I stepped into the house after coming back from my long CNY hol was this :

"Eh, I have just bought a remote controlled car" my hubby said with a wide... big.... smile on his face.....


Well, oh well..... I know he's been eyeing at those remote control cars and how he went to to say that they cost so much more cheaper than Malaysia. During one of his recent business trip to Hong Kong, he saw one interesting one which costs 4 times less than what they're selling over here in Malaysia.

Brendan has a second hand remote control car which was given by daddy's friend. It all started when my friend's hubby had a good chat with him on those remote control toys. We took Brendan to see remote control airplanes in one empty field once. Then those two men went on to talk about self-assembling, management of the machines, blah blah blah.....

In that BIG empty field of men and tons and tons of petrol-filled airplanes, those MEN were brought back to childhood. It's kinda funny to see a bunch men playing toys like a bunch of small boys.

Anyway, back to the remote control car. I asked hubby how much it was. "RM1,700 ONLY".

"What?!" Deep down in my heart, this kiamsiap hubby of mine actually spent RM1,700 on that toy?! I don't know whether to laugh, smile or cry.......

I says it's for Brendan but I think it's more for him than for anyone else.... sigh!

Yeah expensive toys. Another part that I don't understand in man. Fortunately my hubby is not into this but there is always something else. Just have to close 1 eye.

jazzmint, the one my hubby was really interested in is the one that was around RM4k, which he said cost 3-4 times less in Hong Kong.

Michelle, mu hubby likes cars but never consider getting them until my friend's hubby started 'influencing' him. hehehe

Wow.. daddy bought such an expensive remote control car!!

Luckily my hubby is not into such things. He's into DIY-ing amplifier, and always buy cheap componants to enhance his home made amplifier.

zara's mama, I think men will spend on their mechanical interest. I have friends whose hubby are so into computers, pdas, hi-fis, home theatre, etc...

twin, you're right. hubby doesn't care about the house much but when it comes to his remote car, it's nicely tucked away in a cupboard.
