It is the season of consumerism again! the season when it is ALL ABOUT GIVING and shopkeepers are jolly. please be generous with your disposable income, and donate it to us! :) we will put it to good use.

Unlike some charities.

Thank you.

We love you. <3

so much! <3 <3 <3

ps: i'm saving up for an ipod classic. *hint*

We'll be back in November with a bang! woot! with new products and stuff.

for ag who's addicted to old school video games now. Pac-man tribute.
Pac-man proto. He consumed too many dots and became one big wonky dot. so he go kicked out of the game.
Black Pac-man ghost. He blended into the background so the Pac-men can't see him coming. he got kicked out too.

disclamer: all characters are of the fictionous variety. I make no money off these spoofs off the Pac-Man video game.
