I am always excited when it comes to buying giveaways for my kids’ birthday party. I normally would ask them what they want for their friends and then go from there.
These past few years, the answers are more or less the same : torchlight. Seems that my sons have this utter fascination with torchlight and such. It seems that the kids who have been invited to our parties would have quite collection of torchlights :-).
So this time I finally decided on laser pointer, green laser pointer. But what is cool about it is, it has 5 exchangeable heads, which can produce endless entertainment just by rotating them around.
Here are a couple of my best shots that evening when we were trying them out.

I owe them from new year’s eve. There were just too many kids (and adults) playing fire sparklers in the resort we were in on that particular night. Oh, and we were too busy drinking, chatting n watching the real fireworks. So last night we had our own fire sparkler night, just before bed time.
There’s something magical about fire sparklers. They bring back memories of childhood. We used to bend the end of the metal stick as a hook. My brothers used to throw them high to trees, hoping that they will get stuck between branches and leaves. While us girls playing it safe by hanging it one by one on lower tree branches, or running around with it, pretending to be angels with magical wands.
I hope my kids will keep this memory too, for years to come…
