A Chipmunks Christmas @ Mines Shopping Centre

19 December 2009. Saturday. After reading about how my ‘DIL‘ fared so well with the chipmunks here, I decided to take a look at what the hype is all about :) Been living in the Klang Valley for more than a decade now but has NEVER stepped foot in Mines Shopping Centre. First time today :P
Ethan woke up just as we arrived and on time to catch Alvin and the Chipmunks doing their dance routine. They were so huge! Ethan was expecting some cute little chipmunks to appear but when he saw how big they were, he jumped on Darling! hahaha.. How come my ‘DIL‘ so brave? Can go up stage to dance some more!!! Irene, apa lu kasi dia makan?
The stage and props. Nice..
Ethan was fascinated by the animal tiles all over the complex. Very educational indeed :D (Now, if only they’d provided a bra or some sort for that ape! :P)
I wanted to go for this ride, but it was already late. Darling promised to take me there again some day so that I can go for that..
And then they have this promo for the year end. Crazy huh? So expensive! I won’t go for it obviously. Never the type to ‘waste’ money for nothing..

Before you leave, take a look at Alvin and the chipmunks doing their thang
