Boo's Arrival

Boo, is the happy-faced Mui Chan I'd been wanting ever since I saw the first prototypes by Siu Ding and MaFai, the very talented couple behind IxTee.

Boo arrived in super-speed from Hong Kong.

I was really excited and opened her package as soon as I got it. I first saw her faceplates. All of which I fell in love instantly and completely!

So please meet Boo, the newest family…

MIB and NRFB were not in my range... too expensive. So we looked at out-of-box ones and finally got our target locked on a minty condition one on evil bay... waited up till the last few seconds but dang it, LOST the auction by mere cents!!! arrgghhh... the other half laughed at my misery BUT I have my backup plan on another minty one... though the BIN is much higher, it will work out to be about the same (if not cheaper) if I won the other one as that one will require additional shipping service which will surely add up to the cost.

So now the waiting b…
