A Tale of Two Jolly Rosa

Is that Jolly Rosa??...

Hugo Wolf: Why is Jolly Rosa wrapped in a plastic and put in a box!

Hugo Wolf: Oh no!...Is someone trying to send Jolly Rosa away from NICI-Mania? Who is so cold hearted! I got to save Rosa!

Jolly Rosa is going to be suffocated in the plastic wrapping! Got to act quick!

Jolly Rosa: Please save me Hugo..!
Hugo Wolf: Okay! I will be right back!

Hugo Wolf grabs a pair of sharp scissors and starts cutting away the plastic wrapping.

Jolly Rosa is finally freed! Hugo Wolf is so relieved! Our NICI plush couple is saved from separation.

The overly excited Jolly Rosa jumps into Hugo Wolf's arms and they held each other tightly.
SUDDENLY! A familiar strong voice from behind shouted: Hey HUGO you idiot!!

NICI-Mania queen Jolly Rosa taps Hugo Wolf and screamed: What do you think you are doing?!

Why is there two Jolly Rosa? Hugo Wolf is extremely confused. Find out in our next entry!

Arnolds Fried Chicken Arnolds Chicken

Arnolds Fried Chicken or Arnolds Chicken is simply one of the hottest eatery right now in Singapore. NICI-Mania brings our Pirates there to find out whats the fried chicken hype about. Lets go!

NICI Pirates arrived at Arnolds Fried Chicken and the crowd is overwhelming!

Looks like there is a queue system at Arnolds Fried Chicken

There is a menu in front of Arnolds Fried Chicken because you have to order your fried chicken while registering for your queue number.

Once you placed your order with the waitress at the front desk, you will get a queue number and you can wait anywhere in front of Arnolds Fried Chicken.

We are not sure whether this is how Arnolds Fried Chicken normally looks like. We came here because it appeared on tv, so I guess it could be one of the reason why its so crowed.

Our queue number is 13. NICI Pirates waiting impatiently ...

And the crowd at Arnolds Fried Chicken gets even bigger!!

NICI Pirates decided to sit down and wait. Its like waiting for a doctor in a clinic..

Finally the number turns 13!!

Once you're inside Arnolds Fried Chicken, you have to pay at the counter first.

Then the 3 NICI Pirates sat and waited for Arnolds fried chicken to come!

After about 10 minutes, the much awaited Arnolds fried chicken has arrived on our table!

And of course, Arnolds Fried Chicken should go with a cup of ice coke.

We want to introduce a special item on the menu of Arnolds Fried Chicken. The potato chips platter!

Arnolds Fried Chicken's potato chip platter comes with this savory cheese dip. Potato wedges dipped into the creamy cheese *yummy*

Our pirates are very eager to try out all the different types of fried potato chips in the platter. We love this one!

and this too! If you are a potato lover, you definitely want to order this platter to go with your fried chicken. Its a perfect match!

4 pieces of Arnolds fried chicken (thigh and wings, you can specify during order), potato chips platter and 2 ice coke. Not forgetting the lovely cheese dip!

The owner of Arnolds Fried Chicken mentioned on tv that they use fresh chicken bought from the market daily instead of frozen chickens. The juice is simply overflowing from the arnolds chicken. You have to try it to believe it.

Dipping the Arnolds Fried Chicken in cheese is also a great way to eat! *two thumbs up*

NICI Pirates at Arnolds Fried Chicken. You can imagine how many eyes were looking at us while we took this picture.

Arnolds Fried Chicken opens daily from 11:30am to 10pm

Arnolds Fried Chicken is located at the second level of City Plaza, a very old and unseeming shopping center.

We absolute love Arnolds Fried Chicken and will definitely return. Hope you enjoyed our pictures!

NICI Hetch Hogan

NICI Hetch Hogan is the latest addition to NICI-Mania family! As mentioned in our previous (NICI Shopping at CNS Plaza Singapura) entry, we'll show you more of Hetch Hogan today!

 NICI Hetch Hogan is a hedgehog soft toy that can be curled up in a ball like the real animal.

NICI Hetch Hogan belongs to NICI Forest Friends series, so our two forest friend senior Rob Raccoon and Frederic Fox came first to have a look at their good buddy.

NICI Hetch Hogan is really tiny compared to his friends!

On the card of NICI Hetch Hogan, it says "Rollable"

The curious and playful Rob Raccoon was intrigued by what he saw on the card and you don't have to guess what happened next....

Frederic Fox exclaimed: Hey Rob, what are you doing to our new friend Hetch Hogan?!
Rob Raccoon: I'm trying to turn him into a ball! Hehehe (^_^)

Frederic Fox: You sure you are not hurting Hetch Hogan?
Rob Raccoon: Well, I'm just following the instructions the card

After several attempts, Rob Raccoon is perplexed why NICI Hetch Hogan isn't turning into a ball. He didn't notice that NICI Hetch Hogan has a velcro at the bottom..

Frederic Fox: Hey Rob, maybe you have to stick NICI Hetch Hogan's velcro to his ears?

Rob Raccoon: I don't care anymore! I'll just squash him into a ball xD
NICI Hetch Hogan faintly calls for help~~ someone save him

*snaps* NICI Forest Friends family photo. Our NICI Hetch Hogan is very cute but just a tad too small, he'll forever be bullied by the two bigger forest friends.

NICI Hetch Hogan is actually the first NICI keyring we have, the NICI carving on the keyring is lovely!

Surprise from NICI Malaysia

NICI-Mania got a surprise mail from NICI Malaysia at our postbox this week!

Win Malaysia is the official dealer for NICI plush in Malaysia and the owner of NICI shop in 1Utama. 

Hugo Wolf and Jolly Rosa are very excited to see whats inside the mail!

It's a RM50 NICI voucher!!!! Our entire NICI flock are so thrilled! We can redeem our voucher at the NICI  shop at 1Utama. It is so generous of Win Malaysia to give us RM50, which means we can get a 25cm plush for free! (^_^)

Unfortunately, a small accident happened to our human (me, popping my antibiotics and painkillers as I type). The whole toe nail had to be removed by the doctor as the toe was crushed by a heavy object and it was all inflamed under the nail. This might take a while to recover, so we can't visit the NICI Malaysia shop this month *sobs*
