Hastings 2022 – 3 years later

Boris Johnson is gone and now Liz Truss is the new PM. Blimey. Same Tories, but they’re shuffled in the wrong direction. I’m not looking forward for the next couple of years. May someone save us from this government. 😭

And I went back to Hastings after 3 years from when Master B was born, and Baby B at the time was only 4 years old. ^_^

It was very short break, and I think I can only handle Master B for a short of period of time. He’s started talking, but most of the time I can only understand him saying “Why?” and “Mummy”.

So the journey started off slowly. It rained heavily in London on the day we left, but thankfully it cleared up. Miss Pinky had to do some last minute shopping, so I was left with 2 energetic kids… I thought hurry up Miss Pinky before my energy disappered…

We finally left after 2pm on that Thursday afternoon, and walked all the way to London Bridge Station. The trains were either delayed or cancelled. Something happened along tracks. So we changed at Sevenoaks. But finally got to St Leonards Warrior Square (right next door to Hastings) just after 5pm, and made our way to the apartment we were staying at (booked on Booking.com).

Miss Pinky insisted we cooked food rather than buy takeaways, so we brought food (some not even used), then bought extra from the Co-op and SPAR (too much extra stuff, which we had to carry home)…

We all slept quite late but the early riser was Master B (let’s just hope he stops waking up early when he’s 5 years old… not long to go!). He was my alarm clock as well as the seagulls. Luckily Baby B slept through it all. Miss Pinky needed some sleep, so I babysat for an hour or so.

Time to head out, and I realised I left my purse in my jacket pocket (it was quite warm on the Friday), thankfully I had my phone to pay for the bus ride into Hastings Old Town (yes, you can pay with your debit card and credit card using Google Pay and even Samsung Pay).

We walked around, then looked for a place for lunch. We settled on a pub serving Jamaican style food. It was expensive according to Miss Pinky… cost of living has risen around the UK, so I wasn’t that shocked. My fish burger wasn’t fantastic but I ate the lot… the sauce was slightly on the bitter side. Oh well.

Time for clothes shopping in Primark (I didn’t buy anything), and some outdoor trampolining. Then back we went to the apartment. We didn’t even go to the arcades or anywhere else…

But in the evening, after doing some cooking, we went out and did a night stroll up to Hastings Pier. We couldn’t go to the arcade as Baby B wanted to go, as Master B wet himself – why didn’t Miss Pinky put a pull-up on him? Mistakes happen. Parenthood is tough!

Baby B was not impressed, but we “promised” to go the next day.

On the last day before we were to go back to London, Miss Pinky decided we should go back to London, but then Baby B made a fuss that “promises can’t be kept”. How did this young god-daughter of mine start talking like this? Shocked. I was a bit upset. Then Miss Pinky decided we should hide away her luggage somewhere after checkout, then head out. (I actually asked Baby B if she was able to keep her promises … I kind of pointed out her errors too πŸ˜› – that’s Godmother Geek for you!).

We didn’t make it to the arcade, but we did go to the pier again, and spent some time on the rides. Everyone was happy in the end…

Finally on our way home after spending 2 nights and almost 3 days away from London. The best thing on this trip was that I made Master B cry a few times . I didn’t want him to think he could get away with things, and thinking I was the goody adult he could manipulate. Sorry to future parents and godparents – you can’t be nice to kids all the time!

Until next time Hastings!

Stratford Olympic Park 2022

It’s been 12 years since London hosted the Olympics. That’s when I first started Instagramming and remember at the time I still went to work, and everyone in the UK seemed to have avoided the areas, people didn’t commute into work, and the London was practically deserted at the time… well that’s what the media told us to do, and we did! 🀣🀣🀣

So a couple of months ago, I met up with Miss Money and her dog, Mint. The dog needed exercise because apparently she put on weight. Really? She seemed like a normal Yorkshire Terrier to me. Excited as always but so nervous with noise and people. She’s not even 1 years old in human years yet… understandable.

I wanted to get the Elizabeth Line from Liverpool Street Station but it looked like it wasn’t running on the day (or maybe it was… I should have asked), so I ended up going on the Central Line. It was so hot!

Once I finally reached Stratford, it became a cat and mouse game as I tried to find the two. I ended up standing in front of M&S…

We walked around for a while and taking small breaks in between. Thankfully I had breakfast otherwise I would’ve been hungry all day long.

When we got near to the stadium we we realised that there was some sort of an event going on to commemorate the 10 years since the Olympics… It was also my first time seeing the Olympic rings by the way. I had never thought of going to see it on purpose. πŸ˜…

As there wasn’t much to do, and it was getting crowded, we headed back to North Greenwich. I hadn’t realised that people like to oggle their eyes over dogs and try to play with them (when obviously the owner dislikes it). When I see dogs these days, I divert my eyes straight in front to avoid the owner having to pull their dogs. Mint attracts a lot of people… Oh well Miss Money. You might have to avoid crowds somehow!

Once we had reached to North Greenwich Station, it was another long walk via the Thames up to Greenwich… Mint has never walked that part before, but it was a good walk.

We ended up sitting near the Thames eating some Thai food from a stall in Greenwich Market and drinking bubble tea from Gong Cha. I haven’t had Thai food for a while. So happy that we ended up choosing this… I was so hungry that I didn’t even take a picture of my drink and food. πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

That day, I ended up in traffic whilst going home. London Bridge was closed for roadworks… I also walked over 20,000 steps that day!

London’s Summer of 2022 was too hot! Shortly after the heatwave, I somehow ended up going to the Thamesmead Festival in Southmere Park. (Traffic was horrible on that day).

I also completed a computer game – Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series – part one (easy level… but it took me 10 hours to complete!). I want to play the second one, but might wait until I’m stressed to the point that I need to play a game.

Bye bye summer holidays! I’ll see you again next year!!

Handmade Dalgona 수제 λ‹¬κ³ λ‚˜

Recently went to Longdan Supermarket and bought a few groceries during the Platinum weekend. It was fairly quiet in the morning, I guess a lot of people are still trying to have a getaway weekend away from London, or possibly coming into London to see the Royals, politicians and the wotnots of the UK.

At the counter, I saw this cute South Korean package of delight. Something that I’ve wanted to try since watching a lot of Korean variety shows (and don’t forget Squid Game where they were making shapes with dalgona) where they showed how to make this confectionery from the past.

Dalgona λ‹¬κ³ λ‚˜ is basically known as honeycomb toffee in the Western world If you’ve had Nestle’s Toffee Crisp Honeycomb or Nestle’s Crunchie, you might find that the crispy part tastes similar to Dalgona.

Ingredients are: sugar, water, corn syrup and sodium bicarbonate. Just 4 ingredients!

Once I opened the packet, you could see some squared shape biscuit like objects. It would probably remind you of soft set caramel, or possibly some sort of pet treat. It is definitely a treat, but for human consumption rather than the likes of a pet.

Well, what does it taste like? It tastes very, very sweet! Have you tasted any sort of East Asian black sugar snacks, or black sugar bubble tea? If you have, you will taste that very same sort of black sugar taste after tasting the punch of the sweetness followed by a familar caramel-like taste, then sort of ending it with a darker note of the black sugar aftertaste.

Later on in the day, I wanted to see what it would taste like in some hot coffee… Hmmm… Doesn’t taste very sweet at all!

The price of this small bag is Β£1.75. Expensive but it was worth a try, and I would definitely buy this again as a once in a blue moon human treat.

Superstar Korean BBQ – London, St Gile’s High Street

It was my birthday just over 2 and a bit months ago. YAY! And it was the first time in two frigging years since I’ve been able to celebrate my birthday.

2 years older, 2 years of being drained working between the office and home (and only catching covid at the end of last year), 2 YEARS of not being able to blog as much as I had wanted to.

So it was decided with the Gang of Four that we would go and eat in a Korean BBQ restaurant. Reason one – Miss Money is on her keto diet. Reason two – I wanted to eat Korean food outside. And Reason three, (which I didn’t know until we almost finished eating), was that Mr Games and Mr Sensible never had Korean BBQ before).

I had already checked the menu online and was ready to order. As there were four of us, we decided to have two lots of Set Menu 1, which costs Β£66 and serves 2 people (that’s Β£33 per person). There’s a choice of 2 starters – Korean fried chicken or Mandoo (Korean dumplings). We chose the chicken. And then you have a choice of 4 different bbq dishes – meat or veg from the main menu.

The fried chicken came out first. Miss Money and I chose the kimchi mayo, and I think the other one was soy teriyaki. These were ok, but I prefer the bigger pieces of fried chicken from Cheemc.

Japchae was also one of the starters. This tasted ok. I didn’t want to eat too much as there was a lot coming our way!

As you can see, the side dishes of kimchi, spring onions, meat for the grill and rice coming out… Our table was practically full of amazing dishes.

πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… So. Much. Food!! And such a tiny grill…

We grilled and ate, grilled and ate. There were times when we thought the food we were cooking were undercooked. The meat was flavourful and marinated well. I think we just burnt the first grill though as obviously there wasn’t enough fat from the meat or no cooking oil at hand.

Our grill was only changed twice the whole time we sat there. What they should have done is provided some cooking oil so that we wouldn’t burn the grills the whole time we were there… Oh well. Nevermind!

We had a small amount of everything left, so we just poured everything in. I don’t think the staff were that impressed, but we needed to finish the remaining food items. πŸ™ƒ

We were finally stuffed… Finished with all the amazing food… And then came out the fruits. Mr Sensible and I finished our plate, but for some reason Mr Games and Miss Money wouldn’t touch their plate of fruit… They are so weird! I’m sure on a keto diet that you’re allowed to eat some fruits right? Mr Games has a funny palate so I understand that sometimes he doesn’t want to eat certain things.

At the end of the food show, it was time for the cinnamon shot. It’s non-alcoholic, but it’s so sweet! Koreans like sweet stuff. I like cinnamon, but wasn’t sure of this drink… methinks it could have been diuted a bit more for the likes of four people.

Total cost came to around Β£148 including drinks, so that’s Β£37 per person. I think it was a very well-deserved meal and having not spent anything for my last two birthdays.

Korean food is becoming so popular these days that it might topple over Japanese and Chinese food in the UK… I doubt that! πŸ˜…

My geeky rating: 4.5/5

Nissin Cup Noodles – some different flavours…

Been bit on the quiet front recently. It’s been non-stop at work as the offices and staff are almost back to normal. Almost normal. Still working from home people? Most of us have become hybrid workers. I for one am now a hybrid worker. ^_^

Cup noodles! Ummmm. The last time I had a cup noodle was last year at some point and the last time I blogged about a cup noodle was when I was in HK. LOL.

When I went into New Long Fung Supermarket a few months ago, I explored the noodle section as I ran out of instant noodles at the time… and then in the corner of my eye, I spotted these cup noodle treasures! Woohoo! Katsu Curry, Pork Tonkotsu and Beef Sukiyaki. (I also have chicken teriyaki, which I forgot about).

Here I’m eating from non-preference to preference, I tried out the Beef Sukiyaki first. Tastes artificial and sweet to the very end.

Tasted sweet at first, then it felt watered down sweetness with a touch of beef as the aftertaste

The Tonkotsu flavour became a my dinner before bed. Tastes very watered down of the packaged version. Can taste the pork flavour, but it really tastes bland. 😦

Last of all was the Curry flavour. I bought two pots in case I liked it… Artificial taste again. It doesn’t taste like the one I had in HK. It tasted like watery curried flavoured noodles.

Costs Β£1.35 or more (depending on where you get them) – Unfortunately, I wouldn’t buy these again but instead buy those original Nissin cup noodles or Korean cup noodle. (Dreading to eat the second curry cup noodle and the chicken teriyaki flavour). 😭

The nice part is the design of the cups – likely taken from the famous 18th-19th Centuru artist, Hokusai-san…

My New E-readers: Kindle vs Kobo

I have a smile on my face. Why? Because I have not blogged about books in a very long time. In this post, I will explain why I have two fairly new e-readers and the purpose of each. To be honest I explored a whole lot before picking these two. I’ve been sluggish with reading, and have been listening to audiobooks for a year or so during this boring pandemic… but made the switch to reading more via e-readers since using a phone made my eyes swirl.

Kindle Paperwhite 11th Generation is the newest Kindle e-reader at a semi-affordable price of Β£139. It has a screen size of 6.8 inches, no buttons on the sides, 8GB storage and is slightly heavy. I bought this back in October 2021, and so far I have enjoyed reading from it. The first book I read on it was Swing Time by Zadie Smith. I actually have the paperback, which I bought it in July when I was waiting for Mrs Hen at London Bridge Station, but somehow I felt I couldn’t finish the book… Once I had the Kindle, I felt I could read a lot more faster, and finished the book in a few weeks.

After my first book after a long time of not actually reading fiction, I quit my Audible subscription, and went for Kindle Unlimited which was on a promo last year… Well I’m glad I did, because there’s a lot of books I can borrow! And even manga too!!

Manga quality is not too bad, some words are hard to ready because of the lightness of the font. However, you can zoom into the panel to get a better look of the writing.

You can change the way the page looks… have just recently added the time on top of the pages… I always lose track of time when reading.

If you don’t like people knowing which book you’re reading, you can switch to the Kindle screen covers when it goes on sleep mode… I chose this option, as I didn’t want people to know what I was reading.

However, there is only so much that I can borrow via Kindle Unlimited (and also find free e-books elsewhere)… certain books I wanted to read on the Kindle aren’t available on Kindle Unlimited but are available on Overdrive, which is an app that’s usable on the Kobo e-readers!

So, after a few months of contemplation, I bought my second e-reader (my third or was it my fourth really – I have a really old e-reader somewhere). This is the Kobo Libra 2, which costs Β£159.99.

Why did I buy it? It has 32GB of storage, there’s button on the sides, it has a 7 inch screen, I can borrow library books (that’s why I joined Lewisham Libraries, as Southwark Libraries don’t use Overdrive), and I can read a lot of manga! A lot of reviewers out there have said to get the Kobo Forma for reading manga, but to be honest, Kobo Libra 2 is also good. I don’t need an oversized 8 inch e-reader, I needed one that was weight-friendly for my small hands.

The quality of the manga is pretty good, and the pages look very paper-like compared to the screen on the Kindle Paperwhite.

With the Kobo, I like the fact that I can choose what goes on the header and footer. I chose how much time to read (supposed to be per chapter… but depending on the book, it will give me the half-way time for the entire book). And the footer, I chose how many pages I read / left in the book to read. Handy!!

Like the Kindle Paperwhite, you can choose to remove the book cover, but Kobo doesn’t show any default images.

Well, if you’re in two minds like me – get both (only if you can afford it … I’m still paying for the Kobo using Amazon Prime’s 5 x 1 monthly installments). If you can’t buy both, then the best thing to do is ask yourself, which one is more appropriate…

Overall: I would say go for the Kobo Libra 2 – you can borrow library books, and if you can find free epub books on the Internet, then you don’t need to change the file extension for Kindle.

Books I’ve read on the Kindle so far:

  • Swing Time by Zadie Smith (puzzled with this book, but enjoyed reading a complex book after many years)
  • The Christmas Bookshop by Jenny Colgan (fairly sweet book)
  • The Expatriates by Janice YK Lee (I was really disappointed with the ending for this book… I wish there was an alternative ending for one of the mothers)
  • Pachinko by Min Jin Lee – currently in my reading section… the Agatha Raisin series took over!
  • Sweetness and Lightening Manga – Volume 1 (watched the animΓ©, thought I might as well read the manga! And the first 8 volumes are free on Kindle Unlimited)

Books I’ve read on the Kobo so far:

  • Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death by MC Beaton (read in 5 days!)
  • Agatha Raisin and the Viscious Vet
  • Agatha Raisin and the Potted Gardner
  • Agatha Raisin and the Walkers of Dembley (currently on chapter 2 … the Agatha Raisin series is quite addictive!)
  • Absolute Boyfriend Manga – Volume 1 … Reading this because it’s a short series of 6 volumes

If you’ve been stuck in a rut with reading or haven’t read in a long time, give an e-reader a go… I have a long list of books I want to read at the moment, and have downloaded a lot of manga for this manga-deprived geek! It’s paper-free friendly, and takes up less space in your home and in your bag!

I’m a geek who needs to be a geek.

Cha Dong 茢ζͺ” HK Style Milk Tea

Back to blogging! Phew, it’s really been hectic in the past few months. Staff down, means you have to pick up everyone else’s work. Really, really hoping this wave will die down sooner than later! But I’m back into blogging a bit more this month (hopefully!).

Happy Belated Birthday to my blog of 10 years! Wow… time has gone fast. Thinking back, I really used to do a lot. The past few years I’ve slowed down, but I really hope I can do more.

Well onto this post. I know, I know, it’s another HK milk tea… I’ve become obsessed with them since coming back from HK trip last year. This one I found in Chinatown Bakery (in the fridge). They come in rectangular bottles, which resembles a whisky tumbler. Hm. I wonder who decided on this design.

I left it in my home fridge for one week… Was trying to find the right time to drink it before it expires.

The cap took forever to open. MummyGeek even tried… it was so hard, I think I sprained my hand! You will need to somehow release some of the air from the cap before you can unscrew it.

Anyway… this is definitely an authentic HK Style Milk Tea! Cha Dong (茢ζͺ”) meaning “tea shop/stall” seems to have some professionals in place to make this stuff… It’s not too sweet, not too milky, it has that strong tea taste that tastes better cold than hot. I can feel the people making this have made this a thousand times using the right ingredients. MummyGeek tried a bit too, she like it!

Thumbs up from this Geek!

Cost: Β£3.50 a 250ml bottle (expensive, but this one is worth the try)

HOKO Milk Tea

Hoping to blog more about food and drinks this year. Well fingers crossed unless we’re taken over by Covid, or another lockdown (probably an unlikely event), or I get struck down with Covid again (let’s hope that doesn’t happen – I was just miserable).

I bought this tea back in November in Kiki and Miumiu, but became lazy to blog about it.

Have you ever tasted Hong Kong milk tea before? If not, this is probably a good introduction to the tea, because you’re not going to like the original one back home as they use very strong tea. HOKO Milk Tea, which is based in London is a new brand.

It’s all hand brewed as described on the back of the drink pack. They use ceylon tea, evaporated milk and sugar, and you can drink it hot or cold.

So what do I think? I think it tastes lighter than the original versions, mainly because of the amount of sugar used, and I think they use a bit more milk here… I guess it’s to suit the British taste, but British people like strong tea too… Although if HOKO made it to the exact original taste, I think people will turn away from it (I remember my first time drinking this tea (hot version) back in HK … my face grimaced, and the more sugar I added, it just started tasting weird. MummyGeek just got angry at me for wasting the tea and her money LOL … I’m used to the taste now).

I saw on Instagram that they’re making glass bottle versions! Hope they’ll be cheaper in price. Good luck HOKO!!

Cost: Β£3.49 (expensive!)

Size: 250ml

Christmas TV Adverts 2021 – Part 2

Final post of 2021 (but posting on New Year’s Day – coz I fell asleep last night and couldn’t be bothered to finish off this post).

Didn’t have the energy to blog much this month… Other news: my John Lewis purchase episode ended ok. I got a refund, and then bought my stuff from Curry’s – added a few more hundred pounds to the purchase (not sure if it was worth it), but so much better with next day delivery.

Then started isolating because I was in contact with a colleague who had covid… then afterwards I was out for 3 days last week, then somehow managed to contract the virus. So back into isolation I go! Well, luckily I’ve had practice in HK. πŸ˜… Currently on Day 6 of isolation.

Now back to the adverts!

Disney – The Stepdad

Hmm, maybe Disney should make this into a movie. Music is nice. A rather cliched story. A stepfather enters into the lives of a woman with two children. And Disney saves the day with their books and animated stories… The stepfather also tries to be the hero of the gingerbread house… Typical Disney style!

Marks and Spencer – Percy Pig comes to life for the first time EVER!

I’m a bit biased with M&S ads. They really need to do more of food close ups!

In this ad, we see the Fairy accidentally bringing Percy Pig to life with her magical wand. They both explore one of the supermarkets and talk about food… I think they should have added more food stuff in or have Percy eat a few things to see what he liked… like some brussel sprouts. Oh well.

TK Maxx – Christmas to the maxx

Oh dear. We have an advert that’s a cross between High School Musical and the film Love Actually. Not sure if I would have stepped onto an organ just to jazz up the advert or the music. Not sure about those boots for Christmas either… unless I was a real hipster. But hey, I would still shop at TK Maxx for Christmas and non-Christmas stuff.

Morrisons – Christmas Makes Good Things Happen

An unexpected grin and laugh came out of my mouth. John Lewis should learn from this advert. An advert that is 1 minute long. It takes alien style quite seriously, and there was also “Farmer Christmas” who saved the day by making sure food was in stock, and that the trucks as his “reindeer” served him well.

Argos Christmas – Baubles to last year! Christmas is ON!

A toned down Argos advert? Maybe not! As always they have piped up the music, the gifts and the parties. At the start you would have thought, oh no, has Argos turned to the movies for help?! Not really. Lots of gifting here and there, and one girl was just determined to get her whole building to be covered with Christmas lights! Cute advert.

There’s a few more adverts out there… but I’m too lazy to review.

Well… here’s just one more from Norway… Tell me what you think of it!

This year, I will promise to write up on Christmas adverts early (pending on Covid situations and work load).

Hope everyone has a very happy new year (and fingers crossed Boris and co will get it right this year)!!

Christmas TV Adverts 2021 – Part 1

Ok… It’s been a very, very loooooooooong time since I’ve written about a TV advert. Last year was depressing, so there was absolutely way I was going to blog about boring adverts. Let’s hope this Christmas will be saved by sensible people. (I can sense a lot of moaning at the moment. Uh-hm!).

Let’s start off with the ones that people whinge about often.

John Lewis – Unexpected Guest

Well, I’m not sure about this one. Maybe it’s the song that makes it a so-so for me. Or maybe the fact that John Lewis thinks aliens will look like us humans (homosapiens! Really?). The storyline was fine with Boy meets Alien, which sounds familarly like the movie E.T., but maybe work out on the music!! The advert needed more of an uplifting than a sad one. p.s. How on Earth did this advert cost Β£5million to make?

Bought two Apple items recently from John Lewis as they were only the place that was stocking what I wanted. Well, what a disappointment when I opened the box at the bus stop! They weren’t even the items I ordered… Straight back to John Lewis via a Waitrose branch who told me that the box was not even a John Lewis box…! πŸ˜– A little angry, a little shocked and a little disappointed at whoever wasted my time listening to the music on John Lewis’s Customer Service phone line. Were my items stolen or was it just a mix up? Who knows, but I bet they were stolen. πŸ€” SHAMBLES!! Waiting for a refund and Customer Service to call me back…

Sainsbury’s – A Christmas to Savour

I have to agree with this one. It’s been a long time coming for the Christmas celebrations. In this ad, they’ve re-used some old concepts of slowing down and speeding up processes in the video – like the Matrix style. A Pretty simple advert with all the Christmas foodie things, water sound effects, jazzy music, and ending it with normal people just celebrating Christmas. AND all in ONE MINUTE, compared to their other long adverts! Impressive!

Boots – #BagsofJoy

Hm. 🀭 If only I had a Bag of Joy. Here’s a Mary Poppins themed Boots ad with their classic Boots music tingle for Christmas.

Well, I kind of enjoyed this advert. Although it was a 3 minute advert, it told a story of wishes and expectations from the Bag of Joy. Lots of make-up, gift ideas and even a massive pram! Is that even possible?!

If I had one of those bags, I’ll be whizzing out a lot of baby wipes and nappies for one of my godchildren. 🀣

Aldi Christmas Advert – A Christmas Carrot

Heheheh… And we have Kevin The Carrot back with another episode of Christmas.

Aldi have used the theme from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. We have a Banana as Ebanana Scrooge, and Kevin as The Christmas Spirit. (This book is actually on my list to read at some point… otherwise, I’ll just watch the Disney version. Hah!). They whizz around town where the Spirit shows Scrooge what Christmas should be like through the Carrot’s eyes. LOL! I really love Aldi’s efforts in making the Narrator’s sentence rhyme throughout the ad. Clever advert!

Tesco – This Christmas, Nothing’s Stopping Us

This is the very first time I’ve watched the advert in full. Not sure how many complaints it’s received, but I had a grin on my face throughout the ad! 😬

I found the advert funny. It’s a funnier version of what Sainsbury’s tried to do. No one’s going to be stopped from having a fun Christmas this year (whether Omicron destroys our hopes or not). And you know what? Tesco showing Santa has been vaccinated meant he’s able to travel around the world to deliver his presents… so I don’t see anything wrong with that! Everyone who’s travelled so far has had to do the same.

Right, let’s stop here for the moment… I still think lots of companies just bounce their ideas to each other, and make similar Christmas adverts! Hm, I wonder if they go to a brainstorming session, and feed each other with what they got, then divide between themselves on what they’re going to do… Funny idea!

Part 2 to come soon.
