ABC Wednesday: Letter Z. Zone games

ABC Wednesday is hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt

Sam loved the Mega Zone games. He went with his cousins and shot laser beams at each other. His cousins came from Australia and Malaysia and Sam couldn't wait to take them to his indoor maze in Auckland.

The girls reminded me of Amazons. I once blogged about my girls with big feet, a legacy from their Hakka Grand ma, whose female ancestors didn't have bound foot and went to war as the man's counterparts. S and A were brave warriors.

I am not posting photos of S and A as I didn't get permission from their parents.

This week, end I was going to take Sam and his cousins including Olivier to an outdoor laser skirmish. Unfortunately the harsh Australia weather had defeated the temperate weather Sam. We opt for the indoor Time Zone, where it is more comfortable.

In Sam's own words, Australia is fun but very hot. It is in a different Zone from New Zealand.

HighTech games. ;)
When I was at that age, I used to play with 'pump-gun' made from small bamboo with 'Cenderai' fruits (Microcos tomentosa) as a bullet, like this picture.
