Candy - Photohunt



Jaymes brought his little cousins to the games arcade and played the Candy Catcher machines. They came back with a huge bag of candies and some soft toys. It cost me more than S$100!! And I'm sure the dental bills would be more than that ........ :(

I was at the recent launch of France's leading brand of coffee, Carte Noire. There was a fashion show featuring designs by Paris-trained Cambodian designer, Romyda Keth. The models were candy for the eyes. :)

  8. barbara,
    Yes... we have to distribute most of the candies to the neighbourhood children.

    I hope their mothers don't come to me with their kids' dental bills. haha...

    The arcade is like a mini casino. The kids get addicted playing the machines for prizes.

    When they hit a Jackpot, the machine has flickering lights and plays music, and handfuls of candies come tumbling out!

    In order to get the more expensive candy, they keep feeding tokens (money) to the machine and before they know it, they had spent the money that I gave them. Duh!

  18. blur mummy,
    Yalor. That's why I was so mad when I heard that they blew over S$100 on these candies! I could have got myself some expensive chocolates. :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wah I'm sure you can buy even more sweets with that $100... LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  20. day-dreamer,
    Of course... and it would last them a year! hehe....

    ReplyDelete
  21. I loved your candy shots and I liked the second shot where you compared the models with candy. :))

    ReplyDelete
  22. $100! Why not just go buy candy in a candy shop ? :P

    ReplyDelete
  23. lol I never understood the rush of spending on those tokens to get tickets that are exchangeable for some goodies.

    Might as well get it straight off the shelves for a fraction of that money.

    But I guessed it's the kick isn't it? I am still traumatised after failing to get a softtoy for my girlfriend (now wife) when we were courting a decade ago... :p

  24. lots of candy there, so that is expensive candy?! mine's up too hope you can drop by....

    ReplyDelete
  25. Those machines are really money-drains! But kids just love the thrill, don't they?

    Happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  26. THe look on that face with all that candy! Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  27. tigerfish,
    Yalor. The young kids are not price conscious. They just want to have fun and didn't imagine that S$100 would buy a lot of sweets.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wah~~~~look at the mountain of candies! No wonder Jaymes so happy, look at his smile! Haha

    ReplyDelete
  29. ck,
    You couldn't catch a soft toy for your girl friend then? You could buy it for a cheaper price! See, the attraction of the machine, even adult also not spared!
    :)

  31. chateau,
    Yes... they love to play at the arcade. Every token that is slotted into the machines is a heart-aching S$1!

  32. Doreen,

  46. That's a lot of candies! S$200 bill from the dentist compared to S$100 spent? Oh my that is twice as much! But I think the fun that comes with it can't be bought.

  47. I don't like the idea of spending so much on a candy machine.

    ReplyDelete
  48. They were lucky to get that much. Those machines are so loaded with stuff and you get so little for your money. Fun all the same.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Too much candy and for the eyes, my I'm blind and without teeth after this... *giggles*

    ReplyDelete
