Happy Meal, Happy Baby!

When Yue saw the latest Happy Meal commercial on TV the other day, I knew what was going to happen next.

And so the inevitable happened the following day - a trip to the nearest McD's and three orders of Happy Meals.

Alvin and my Quarterpounder.
Because Yue wanted all three chipmunks at the same time. 

Simon and Theodore. (And a Mc Chicken meal plus two more Burger Mc Do meals.)
So that meant buying that much food even if it's just the two of us eating. (Plus my Quarterpounder, bought ala carte.) I have no qualms when it comes to these Happy Meal toys, because I'm actually a fan of them, too. I started collecting them when I was still in high school; all those toys are still very much intact and stored properly at my Mom's place. So imagine how much I have spent on Ronald McDonald all these years. It's a fortune, I tell you!

But they don't call it a Happy Meal for nothing. Just look at my little man.

Our favorite couch at McD's.
His face says it all. :)

    Ditto on that. Their happiness would be enough for us. :)

    What I love about the Happy Meal toys are their quality and durability. They're able to withstand my son's destructive prowess. Haha! Even my old Happy Meal toys are still a-ok. So when you look at it this way, you do get your money's worth. ;)
