We never thought of buying our 5 year old girl a bike while we’re in Malaysia. Whenever she would ask us about it, our usual reply would be ” Wait till we go back the Hatyai and we’ll try to buy you one there.” We can’t really make a promise to buy her a bike immediately since bicycles, even the children’s bicycle are so expensive these days. But as very kind and good parents :), we would also want her to have one because that’s really every child’s dream.
Then, a few weeks after arriving here in Malaysia we saw that there’s an old bike at the back of the house. It’s actually her cousin’s one. But we decided to have it fixed so that our li’l girl and her cousin could share and take turns on riding the bike ( and hoping at the same time that this arrangement would work and would not cause fights).
So, happily my hubby, my li’l girl and cousin went to the bike shop to have the bike fixed. They were both so excited! Then, my Hubby saw a red 2nd hand bike that has been displayed in the shop. Even my Li’lgirl noticed it and exclaimed, “That’s a nice, bike!” So, my HUbby tried to ask the price of the bike and found it to be only 20RM!! So, immediately he bought the bike and brought it home with our happy li’l girl!
