In a detraction from my normal posts, today, I talk about something fun.
Over last weekend, my brother and his family were in HK visiting E and myself. We had lots of fun going to places and eating good food.
On the day before we went to Disneyland, I did this to our car....
I did it by wiping off some of the layer of dust that has settled on the car over the past 1-2 weeks. It's so dusty here that after a week, a very visible layer of dust will have settled on the car. I wanted to add some colour, but seeing that the car was already purple (and so are Decepticon insignias), I decided that no addtional colour was necessary.
At night, E added what she called her 'Halloween' touch to my Decepticon insignia....
Haha, that was fun.
Before flying off this Monday, my brother, his family and my mum were in my apartment for the morning while I was off at work. Then in the afternoon they flew back home (there is a point to this).
Then, I was away on business from Tuesday to Thursday and was dead tired when I got back on Thursday. So, yesterday (which was a Friday), I was sitting down having dinner at home and looking at my Transformers shelves (as I do) and I saw some abnormalities.
I think some of them are moved.
Aha, it's possibly my brother who moved them when he was in my apartment and 'unsupervised'.
See here, I think my brother transformed yellow Cliffjumper and Bumper into their vehicle modes and made them face each other. It's exactly the type of playful thing I expect my brother to do, heh.
I started looking at all shelves to see if anything else has been touched or moved. Sure enough, I saw that the position of my brother's favourite TF, Slag, has been moved. I'm surprised that he did not transform Slag.
I looked further, and see that Swoop has been moved 90 degrees as well.
So, I quickly texted my brother and asked if he has played with the TFs and he said "what took you so long to notice!".
This is a comparison photo taken in late August 2013 with arrows pointing to what my brother has moved / transformed. For now, I am going to leave the moved stuff as is because whenever I see it, it reminds me that my brother was here at my place and taken the time to fiddle with the TFs.
One thing is for sure - I'm very glad that my childhood play buddy has touched and played with my Transformers.
It has certainly brightened my day. =)
PS: my brother owned his fair share of TFs back in the day. Don't believe? Check out the list right here! Today, my brother's D-70: Cyclonus MIB (still very C9), sits snugly in my collection.
