It made me wonder if it would be worthwile to import them bulk and send them locally to people in Europe. Of course that’s the AEU86 shop spirit I still have…
Unfortunately the double shipping is killing the costs: a yearly susbscription would be somewhere near 36 euros in the most ideal situation (80 or more subscriptions) and that would only cover the costs, so no risk compensation or anything. Too bad, otherwise it would have been another challenge.
Yesterday when feeding Olivér some peach he thought it was way too sour. In the mean time I was eating a banana, which is his favorite food. All of a sudden he said “baaaa-naaaan” and shortly after that “naan”, which is completely correct in Dutch spelling!
He did say “Mama” and “Papa” before, but that was not really pointing out to anyone or anything, while the “baaaa-naaaan” was clearly pointing to the banana!
Also today is his 11th monthday, so he’s almost a year now! Happy monthday, Olivér!
I was browsing through the inventory of Yesasia.com to see if there were anymore interesting deals.
I did find this little gem:
It’s the AE86 Owners Bible (not to confuse with the TRD Bible which is totally different!) which features a lot of information about the AE86. Apart from the fact that this is a collectors item, it is mainly a guide for maintaining and tuning (including 20v swap!) your Hachi-roku and how to attain the same skills as the Dori King himself!
I’ve seen them for sale cheaper than this, but then you have either a second hand version or you don’t have the free shipping option. And believe me: shipping from Japan is expensive!
Too bad I don’t have my Trueno anymore… Otherwise I would definetly have bought it, just like I bought my TRD Bible shortly before I sold the Trueno.
