Tomica Pikachu & Monster Ball Car

I am not a fan of Pokémon; I haven’t played the video game, watched the anime, collected the cards, or read the manga. I don’t know much about them, but when I saw this Tomica Ride On R10 Pikachu & Monster Ball Car, I decided to buy it a few months ago because it looked like it had a lot of play value.

Home quarantine

On January 31, 2020, the Department of the Interior and Local Government-Bicol Region issued Memorandum Circular No. 2020-018 “Guides to Action Against “Coronavirus”.”

On February 3, 2020, the Office of the City Mayor, City of Naga issued Executive Order No. 2020-004 “Creating the Infection Prevention and Control Task Force.”

On March 16, 2020, a Memorandum from the Executive Secretary on Community Quarantine Over the Entire Luzon and Further Guidelines for the Management of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Situation announced “the imposition of an Enhanced Community Quarantine and the Stringent Social Distancing Measures over the entire Luzon, including the National Capital Region (NCR), effective 00:00 (12 a.m.) of 17 March 2020 and expiring on 00:00 (12 a.m.) of 13 April 2020.”

Part of it states that “A strict home quarantine shall be observed in all households; movement shall be limited to accessing basic necessities; provision for food and essential health services shall be regulated; and there will be heightened presence of uniformed personnel to enforce quarantine procedures.”

On March 19, 2020, the Office of the City Mayor, City of Naga issued a Memorandum Order “Mga Bagong Panundon sa Implementasyon kan Enhanced Community Quarantine sa Naga” describing a “Home Quarantine Leave Pass.” (I am unable to translate the document to English.)

Last March 23, 2020, I received the Home Quarantine Leave Pass shown below. It is printed grayscale on glossy paper with a hardly-noticeable dry seal.  It allows me to leave my residence during given hours on three given days of the week.

Suzuki Carry Pig Carrier Truck

It’s been eight months since my last blog post about scale models, and two months since my last blog post. Since then I’ve bought a lot of scale models. I’ve forgotten when I bought this Tomica Event Model No. 4 Suzuki Carry Pig Carrier Truck. I saw it on display out of its box. I was attracted to it by its bright colors and its loose pigs, and when I saw that it was a Tomica Event Model, I knew I had to buy it.
