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!*
