I got a Nintendo Wii… Wheeeee!!! (and, might I add, a little Yippee!)
My sister actually got the Wii from Melbourne, and my dad brought it back when he came back from visiting her last week.
In case you don’t know what a Nintendo Wii is, it’s the latest Nintendo console with a very unique control system. The Wii remote can be used to point at your TV screen, and it can detect motion and acceleration.
I’ve been playing the Wii Sports that came bundled with the console, and so far I quite enjoy the Boxing game. I actually have to do boxing motions with my fists and my on-screen Mii will do the same! It’s really really fun!
I also like playing Tennis, where I can practice my forehand and backhand swings. It can even detect top-spin motion! Every time I play Tennis I try to imitate Ivanovic Federer.
Poey Chin isn’t very happy when I spend time playing with the Nintendo instead of spending time with baby, so during my ‘down time’ I take photos of baby Rachel together with the Nintendo Wii.
Baby watches me play and she’s very amused. She looks at me with round eyes and has a bemused smile. Sometimes she laughs at me when I get particularly active doing my Nintendo Wii moves.
I have to tell you, after playing for half an hour it really feels like a mini-workout. My arms get tired and I’m sweaty all over. I even need to take a break for water!
I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I’ve got some sort of sprain in my right shoulder after trying to hit home runs in the baseball game.
