I saw this cute Mario toy in a display at a shopping centre here.
Mario is a very famous character in Nintendo's game. Before Sony's playstation and X-box, we have the Nintendo games and some other games like Sega... some twenty years ago.
Though most know Mario by face, most will not really know more about him. According to Wiki, Mario is depicted as a short, pudgy, Italian-Americanplumber who lives in the Mushroom Kingdom, having originated from New York. He is best known for repeatedly stopping the plans of Bowser to kidnap Princess Peach and subjugate the Mushroom Kingdom. He also has other enemies and rivals, including Donkey Kong and Wario.
Mario is actually the James Bond in computer games, killing villains and rescuing others.

Yes, my fave chips ! Pity it's the most expensive on the snack shelves. NL is a big producer of potato products in many forms. A house brand pack of 200grams chips cost abt 45 euro cent .. but the branded ones goes for 80ct n abv.

In Sg I prefer to hunt for the hot-n-sweet tapioca chips - yum !
