Hey guys! I’m back home and even though I had agreat time, I can't wait to write another article.
So I went on vacation to America, Columbia and Aruba. Naturally I was excited as hell to go. What made me a little extra excited was the fact that I now could go on Pfeiffer-hunt in other countries. So, without further ado (:p), here are my found Pfeiffer-treasures:

First of all, you should know that they don’t sell original DVDs in my country. It’s either a copy of the original or just a version filmed in a cinema or something. Real DVDs in Surinam are about as rare as pirate DVDs in America. I have seen all Pfilms by downloading or buying the copy DVDs. But obviously I want all Pfilms in original; even if it’s just to have them. So I arrive in America, expecting to find loads of Pfeiffer DVDs coming my way. Well, that totally backfired. I mean you’d think they’d have all of them in the USA, I mean they were made there and everything! So anyway, I was on my fifth day in America and hadn’t found anything Pfeiffer! I was pretty pissed off.

The sixth day though, I went to Wall Mart for some grocery shopping. I saw a DVD section and I literally ran to that corner! I rushed my eyes over the stand so quickly I almost tripped (LOL). Then my eyes came to a sudden stop. My first found Pfeiffer treasure; Batman returns. I can’t even describe my joy. Ironically, it was on sale for 50%! Pure luck.

Finally, I gained hope again. Over the next couple of days I kept walking in and out of DVD, CD and book stores. On almost my 15th day, I walked into another one of those DVD stores. Pretty skeptical due to the lack of Pstuff, I walk through the stands. And then BOOM! All these Pfilms staring at me! I grabbed every single one of them and checked every section twice. I walked around with this stash of DVDs and a huge grin; people were looking at me thinking ‘what a freak’! LOL. On my way to the counter I walked past the soundtrack section and found ‘Grease2’ and ‘I am Sam’. So that day I went home broke, but content :)

I kept looking for good book stores though. The only ones I found were these annoyingly post-modern ‘teenage’ shops with nothing but ‘Twilight’ on the stands. So one day we went to the supermarket and I spot this relatively big book store next to it. I rush in and start looking around. So then I walk by this stand with all these dusty, neglected, -nobody-wants to read-‘em- books. I look up and down the stands, and suddenly let out a very strange, high-pitched shriek. It was a total unintentional sound and I’ll tell you, it was weird; people were looking at me as if I was a mental patient. Anyway, what made me shriek:

Isn’t it great! Any Pfan collector’s item. Can you believe it was on a huge sale for less than $10! At the same book store, I also got these two:

So now I had some Pstuff, but let’s get real, you can never have too much of it! So I kept hunting for more. One day we were just driving through the neighborhood without a particular destination. We saw this little mall-ish thing somewhere along the road and we decided to stop by. There was this one guy selling books, DVDs and CDs, so naturally I take a look. My parents were in a hurry, so I couldn’t really look thoroughly. Then on our way out we saw this $1 dollar store and my sister wanted to take a look, and so we did. But I had this nagging feeling that I should go back to the store with the DVDs. I can’t explain it, but it was some kind of instinct that told me to go back there. Or as I’d like to call it; Pfeiffer-instinct :p So I went back to nose some more. There was this one corner where this pile of all sorts of old, dusty books lay. It was all very unorganized, but I took the effort to go through them, because you never know right? And yep, my effort paid off. My heart skipped a beat when I saw her face on one of those books:

By then I was suddenly pumped with energy, going through the whole stash of books and searching through the huge collection of DVDs and CDs. I think I’ve spent more than almost two hours there, just carefully screening every inch of that place. The time I spend paid off and I found 4 more Pfeiffer-treasures:

So America didn’t have thát much Pfeiffer stuff, but in Columbia and Aruba I found absolutely nothing. Of course that got me mad, but what are you gonna do about it? I’m just glad I found some Pfeiffer-treasures. Cannot wait to go on vacation in other countries, even if it’s just for the Pfeiffer-hunt :p

Oh, almost forgot. Look what I got from a friend, for my birthday:

Sweet right?! Want to wear it every day! LOL
