In response to Sylvain LANDRY, SL-Week 6: Moto.
Landry mentioned that he finds motorcycles or scooters dangerous. How about a Lego scooter? =D
A Lego scooter could come with all the excitement and none of the risks.
There are three main reasons why I indulge in Mia (the girl on the scooter) and her scooter, as follows:
i) my parents object to me learning to ride a bike because they find that motorcyclists lose their lives too quickly on the roads. As such, I will almost never learn to ride one, must less own one. (See Cocoa’s notes.)
ii) I have a driving license, and I enjoy driving a car with a little bit of speed, so I will imagine myself as a motorcyclist from time to time. Mia is my Lego doll, my Lego champion.
My parents are very encouraging and supportive of me knowing how to drive a car.
iii) I like how photogenic the scooter is – cute headlights and mint colour. I also like the set, Mia’s Lemonade Stand 41027, that includes Mia and her scooter.
Do you think riding a motorcycle or scooter is dangerous? Have you ever played with Lego? Is Lego still enjoyable for you?
In the Singaporean Asian culture, following parents’ wishes is a form of showing filial piety and respect. One usually does not confront others much, especially not elderly. If one will not die from doing something, then just do it.
