I’ve been seeing Kinder Bueno chocolate bars in Manila, but never the Kinder Surprise. So when I read Peter Moore’s Vroom with a View, where he went through several Kinder Surprises to get the elusive green Vespa, the first question that came to my mind was, where can I get one?
I chanced upon a stack of Kinder Surprises inside a milkbar in Lancefield.
Picking up one, I made a silent prayer that inside is a little green Vespa.
It wasn’t. It was a green airplane, which is fitting I think, given my near-obsessive fascination over the Airbus A380 lately.
Of course, thinking of Kinder Surprises and green Vespas made me think of Peter Moore so I headed on to his website to see what he’s up to lately. Great timing, I should say, as he’s scheduled to launch his latest book, Vroom by the Sea on the 21st of Novembe here in Melbourne. I may have missed The Cat Empire in Australia yet again, but I’m not letting this one pass. Hopefully, I can figure out how find that bookstore before the launch…
