Just one more Kitty magnet to go

"Ah-gong" (Grandpa) brought a big bag of 7-Eleven Hello Kitty magnets for Jason to complete his collection. In case you didn't know, there is a mad Kitty magnet craze in Taiwan at the moment. If you spend 77 Taiwan dollars in a 7-11 you get a free magnet and there are 30-odd to collect and swap with your friends. Jason had two missing and now, thanks to Ah-gong, he has all the main ones and only needs one of the three 'special' ones. Sales at 7-Eleven have gone up over 20% compared to this time last year. 7-Eleven know a good thing when they see it and so have brought out a new series of 10 or so magnets with a Taiwan theme [..groan...]
