Spotlight is one of my favourite Australian stores here in Hong Kong. It sells haberdashery, manchester, craft, party supplies, and many other items. Sadly for me, the only Spotlight in Hong Kong is closing down at the end of this month.

The day that we went, the store had 70% off everything. Bargains galore, you might think, but there was a catch...the queues were soooooooooooooooo long. Keegan found a dress-up mask he wanted to buy, but I explained that for the couple of HK dollars the mask cost it wasn't worth waiting in line for over an hour to pay. I told him that if he really wanted it he would have to be brave enough to ask someone already in line to buy it for him. To my surprise, Keegan plucked up the courage to ask a few customers until he found one who understood enough English and agreed to his proposal.

Here he is wearing his new mask and the Ben10 costume Jemilla gave him for Christmas.
