Sg Besi? We got Astro

Three Saturdays ago, the Belacan family was at Giant Puchong shopping for our weekly groceries. As I was pushing our shopping cart, I noticed this sign:
"Buy RM199 or more at Giant and get an Astro decoder free"
I was like, wah... this is an opportunity! But then hor, I was a bit apprehensive at asking Mrs B, the real Home Minister (ahem), as she did say to me rather straightforward, "No Astro!". So I waited for an opportune time to swing into action, I mean popping the question. About 20 minutes later....

Belacan: Dear dear, see see that cart? It says can get Astro decoder free if we buy RM199 or more here kat Giant. We only pay RM100 for the installation wor....

MrsB: Issit? *Turns around to read* oh... ok.

End of conversation. We continued our shopping. 10 minutes later....

MrsB: OK-lah, let's get it.

Belacans: Get what? *pretending to be dunggu*

MrsB: OK-lah, let's get that Astro.

Belacans: Sure or not? *inside already yippee-kaiyea* I remember very clearly someone said "No Astro" *wink wink*

MrsB: Aiyer, you har! *gave me a mental slap across the face* I just don't want to pay so much for some entertainment. If it's free, different story lar.

Belacans: OK *smile smile smile* but out cart doesn't seem to have RM199 of goods yet. Let's shop!

As of 2nd July, the Belacan family has been enjoying Astro. We took 3 mini-packages namely Fun, Sports and Learning for RM49.95 monthly. I have also code-locked the Cartoon Network because I can't stand some of the cartoons there. I enjoy watching Playhouse Disney with Suzanne - I find their cartoon characters quite wholesome and "safe". Why, just last night this conversation took placed:

Belacans: I like this Big Blue House (a show on Playhouse Disney), especially the big bear. Don't you find him sexy?

MrsB: Huh? *pause* Yeah.... he does looked like you!

Belacans: huh? excuse me?

Belacan says..... "I am not fat, period! I just have more to love" kekeke

Which cartoons you don't like? Some of the cartoons today are really violent/sexy/dumb. But then again Looney Tunes also quite violent, eh?

Bear? I find him vulgar and obsence. Always sniffing around. But shiok thing is the kids really thought Bear can read their mind. Like 'hmmm...have you just eaten a banana'? Coincidence mah. Don't watch too much Astro and forget to blog hor?

Lucia Lai said...

Mama22Beas said...

No, no, no...belacan, listen to me. You don't look like the bear..., I mean, at least to my eyes;). Anyway, we only allowed Playhouse for the kids...and Bea1 just loves the bear, and the goodbye song very much. And hey, Shana Show is also interesting and educational...love the song, too! And the little brown bear, too. Hehe...I can go on and on, as I normally watch together with the kids.
