Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue!

(This Buzz Lightyear image is courtesy of Del's blog dedicated to Buzz Lightyear toys.)



For Toy Story Fans or mummies with children who are Toy Story fans, Mommy is sure you know this famous Buzz Lightyear's shooting-laser pose, right? Well, yesterday, Mommy had a good chance to see Juan Or put the pose to 'good use'.


It all started when yesterday, Mommy had to make a sudden trip down to Pandamaran in Port Klang to change a car tyre. The tyre on the back of the driver's side was already bulging and swollen, so posed a higher risk for bursting and thus very high chance for road accident to happen. You may be wondering why change tyre in Pandamaran, somewhere far away from where Mommy stays? That's because Mommy's Ah Yi (maternal aunt) and her husband opened a tyre shop, so Mommy is sure of getting good price for the tyre and service plus Mommy need not worry whether a certain procedure or service is unnecessarily done onto the car in order to make more money from the customer.

That day, by noon, Mommy came out from office, went off to fetch Juan Or from the babysitter first and then headed off to Pandamaran. Once at the tyre shop, Mommy was greeted by Mommy's cousin (Ah Yi's son) who helps his parents full-time in the shop where hard labour of tyre services is concerned. The last time Juan Or went to Ah Yi's place and meets her and her family, Juan Or would always end up crying because he is the type who cannot stand to see unfamiliar faces looking straight at him. But by now, at 2 years 5 months old, Mommy was still unsure what would his reaction be to face them. So when Mommy was telling the cousin about the car's tyre problem, Juan Or was cool. Nothing seems to bother him. But problem started when Juan Or sensed that Mommy was bringing him to the shop's office section. Mommy had not even started to open the office door, Juan Or had already burst out crying in protest!

So in the end, Mommy had to bring Juan Or for shopping at EconSave to stop him from crying further (Yes! Luckily EconSave is just about next to Ah Yi's shop!). And of course, when it comes to shopping, Juan Or is all for it! So we had a good time shopping plus window shopping with Juan Or riding in the shopping cart. In the end, Mommy only bought some big onions and limau nipis (lime) because the supply was already finishing at home.

After coming out from EconSave, there was a row of kiddy rides and as usual Juan Or wouldn't want to miss that. Juan Or rode on the car kiddy ride without any coins inserted. Then one Malay toddler who looks just a little older than Juan Or came and sat on one Doraemon kiddy ride just next to Juan Or. What Mommy saw next was a typical scene of  'monkey see, monkey do'. Whenever the Malay toddler stood up, Juan Or would follow suit. And when he sat down, Juan Or would do likewise too. And both kids seemed to enjoy the play even though they were strangers to each other. After that, the Malay toddler attempted to touch Juan Or on his arm. Juan Or is one boy who doesn't like to be touched by unknown people - not even by unknown kids. So to ward off the boy's touch, Juan Or did the Buzz Lightyear shooting-laser pose on him! ^_^ But of course the Malay toddler was not bothered by the shooting-laser pose and still went ahead to touch Juan Or!


Watch this video! ^_^

Not just that, Juan Or even gathered all the words associated with Buzz Lightyear to scold the Malay toddler for touching him. Mommy remembered hearing Juan Or scold the boy with words such as "Buzz Lightyear!" and "astronaut!". ^_^ *Kids!*

LOL, looks like Juan Or was having fun racing car with the Malay boy.

From here we can see how influential the TV and movie to children, that's also one of the reason why I limit my lil sprouts from watching too much movie or TV show.:D

eugene said...

MMMMMMM, like Alice said how easily our youngs can be influenced by the tv, movies and internet..

but for this case,,, Buzzlightyear, ok good character,no problem

take care now ya

yvonne said...

Wow, Juan Or really love Buzz to this extend :)

I wish my girl to be more ladylike, like those princesses. But she choose to imitate Ben10 most of the time *slap forehead*

Hayley said...

Haha, children tend to follow each other.. they could be so friend at this moment, but cry and shout at the next moment, right?

Have a nice day Alice!

Yin Yue said...

Hi Juan Or and mommy, hopping in and found your blog interesting.

My little Yin Yue also like Toy Story 3. Her favorite is Jessie --- Yeee Haaaa!

Yin Yue's mommy aka Connie

hahahaha...nobody would have known he is scolding that boy

Alice Phua said...

Prince n princess' mum, LOL! Hehehe....I'm not surprised he will like to be called that! :P

Alice Law and Eugene, yes, that's true, the things they watch on the screen can be very influential to them, especially the ones that they like to see. My son even told me he wants to eat this, eat that when he saw Oreo, Chipsmore and Kenny Roasters' ads on TV. By the way, sometimes when hubby scolds him for some misbehaviour, he also used the shooting-laser pose on hubby to show he doesn't like to be reprimanded.


Yvonne LOL, don't worry about that. When the time comes, i.e, when her female hormones start erupting, I'm very sure she will start to be lady-like already and probably is very conscious about accidentally appearing non-lady-like. I myself was very tomboy when I was a child. I love Thundercats instead of Care Bears! I wiped my mouth in the most unlady-like way, i.e., by turning the skirt upwards and giving it a wipe! But when I reached my teens, I became conscious already! Heheheeh!

Hayley, oh, yes, indeed, and then they can be very good friends again after all the unpleasantness. :-D Have a nice day too!

Hi Yin Yue's mummy, thanks for visiting my blog. Will visits yours too tomorrow (need to get out from office already). Talking about Jessie, my son prefers Jessie more than Woody (eh, I thought boys prefer Woody and girls prefer Jessie?), but of course he prefers Buzz than Jessie. But surprisingly also, my son likes Minnie Mouse more than Mickey Mouse wor *slap forehead*.

Small kucing, LOL! I think so too. Maybe that boy also didn't know Juan Or is scolding him. :P

Adrine said...

That's so funny! Well, it's good that he tried to "protect" himself from the unwanted touch from the other boy.

Alice Phua said...

Adrine....hehehe....yes, it's cute how he stood up for himself against uninvited gestures. :-D

Kiasu Mom said...

That's so cute... and yes kids do learn very fast from TV. My daughter likes to say 'OH MAN!' which she copied from Dora...

Alice Phua said...

Kiasu Mom, LOL! Same-lah, all kids will pick up something from the screen in one way or other :-)

mNhL said...

hahaha....protecting himself.

Alice Phua said...

mNhL, yup, that's right! :-D

Mummy Gwen said...

Alice Phua said...

Mummy Gwen, :-D yes, cute kiddy antics.
