Titre original : Episode 20
Having been chosen to appear in a photo shoot for the cover of a dance magazine, Emma, Jackie and Ally head to Sydney to find some new costumes. The fun filled shopping expedition takes a turn for the worse however when Jackie’s neighbours from Singapore accidentally spot her! The girls manage to make a quick getaway but when it comes time to return home, the chatroom won’t allow Jackie back to Singapore. She discovers that because of a huge electrical storm over the island, her computer has been turned off. Jackie is forced to make up a stack of excuses to explain why she hasn’t arrived for work at her grandmother’s store. The situation gets worse though when her mother asks her to also do the shopping for dinner that evening. It’s a seemingly simple task but exotic, Chinese groceries are not easily obtained in the outer suburb where Ally lives. The girls realise they’ll have to seriously improvise if they are going to save Jackie’s hide. They manage to pull off the impossible but at the end of the day, the one thing they failed to achieve was to find new costumes for their photo-shoot. Then again, if they could improvise their way around Jackie’s problems, maybe they can tackle the costume issue with the same inventiveness.
