Suzanne: Daddy, my watch cannot work already.
B69: Again? OK, which watch is it this time? The Barbie one?
Suzanne: *sheepishly* yes... the Barbie one, but but it's not my fault! It stopped working *tears swelling in eyes*
B69: There there, daddy is not going to scold you. OK, I will buy you a new watch and this time, a good watch, ok?
Suzanne: OK :)

About 5 minutes later, Mrs B walked into the shop....
Suzanne: Mummy mummy, see what daddy bought for me? *point point to new watch*
Mrs B: *gasp* Daddyyyy...?
SueAnne: Mummy, I got oso!
Mrs B: *double gasp* Daddddyyyyyy???
B69: Errr, according to our agreement, anything below RM500 does not require two to agree, right? Soooo, they are below RM500... *cough cough*
Mrs B: How much? *gives stare of death while at the same time wants to hug and kiss B69*
B69: errr, not telling, hehehe
Suzanne: Mummy mummy, I tell I tell! Neh, price over there. *points to display*
Mrs B: Oh, that much only? *Smiles to B69, ok, you can escape this time*
Got me gals a Flik Flak each. Initially wanted to buy for Suzanne only but SueAnne, the 3 yo vain pot of the house, also wants a watch of her own, haiyar!
The Flik Flaks came with 2 years warranty and the best part is, they are machine washable! If you need to know, they cost RM110 each. And for this accountant, they are better value for money that all those RM50 - RM70 Barbie/Mickey watches that works for less than 6 months. And btw, that's how I justified the buy to Mrs B, hehehe
