Blogging has its privileges II

Besides meeting some great people from blogging, the local press managed to track me down for a coverage as well. This article about toy collectors appeared in today's Chinese papers zbNOW and I'm only glad to be able to share the passion on a wider scale :) Just so people know I'm not the 40-year-old virgin played by Steve Carell in the 2005 movie of the same name - LOL!!

The part about me owning 2,000 1/6 figures have been misquoted lah, what I actually said was, "My boys counted the number of figures I have altogether and told me it was about 2,000" - this includes Kubrick, Chogokins, carded and loose figures, and the other toys that I have, other than 1/6 figures. Hope this clears the air ;p
