Just Days Before Christmas, I Finally Got The NES Classic Edition – S12E06

The NES Classic Edition is one of the hot sellers of 2016 and a must get for Christmas. I was able to get it at EB Games on December 22nd and they had a minimum of 4 per store. It goes to show how crazy buyers and video games fans are trying to scoop up this retro video game system.

I wasn’t trying hard enough to finding it when it was released in late November but I was convinced by my brother to get it. It was quite the hunt to finding the product around stores. A nice way to get it before Christmas.

Changes to the Blog
Just to let everyone know that WildWorks.ca shifted to a web hosting service. The reason for it being that I bought web hosting for the lion dance website and with the shared hosting, I can also use up to 3 websites. I might as well move my blog as WordPress.com has given me limited ability to style the pages and having some complications. It will be powered by WordPress.org, which gives me more freedom with using plugins.
At the moment, some of the older entries are missing photos and other content. The migration will take awhile and I will probably have a new theme layout sometime in 2017.

Wanting to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Time for Winter, Time for a New Parka – S12E05

The Signature Parka
It was a week after Black Friday and being a Hudson’s Bay fanatic, they had a one day sale for the Hudson’s Bay Collection products. This particular jacket caught my interest and it has been released since September. Just in time for Winter, it’s the Hudson’s Bay Collection Signature Parka.

Regular price at $499 (Canadian), on that Friday (December 2nd), it was on sale for $299. I couldn’t pass up on the deal since I was in need of a new winter jacket. The previous winter jacket has shown some wear and tear. There’s no to continue wearing it for Winter 2016 and 2017.

The HBC Signature Parka looks very stylish with the famous multistripes. There’s several pockets and two drawcords for the hood and waist. The fur from the hood is coyote. It’s puffy throughout the jacket but more noticeable in the bottom. I have worn it inside the house and it got pretty warm.

I can’t wait to wear it outside as Ottawa got some snow and hope to keep it in good care and have it last for years to come.
