Mega Chinese New Year shopping

Shopping for CNY clothes wouldn't take more that 2 days to find the ones you like. I practically took 5 days this year and bought more than before. Apparently I broke the record by going out shopping for 4 days straight this week. This is how it all started.........

Day 1: 1/1/2008, One UTAMA
Objective: take pictures, clothes
We intend to go there to take pictures with Christmas deco. It has not put down although it is New Year day. Last year Christmas decoration is really beautiful. You see a HUGE nutcracker playing the drum and smaller nutcrackers around it placed on the keyboard key. A stairway leading up near the head of HUGE nutcracker. Mom, sis and I took pictures together.
Sis bought a hat for herself for 20% discount and wore it on the spot XD. I tried few slim cut jeans in Romp but it never fit well in me. At the end, I bought nothing.

Day 2: 20/1/2008, Mid Valley
Objective: Clothes, pants, shoe
I went out with my mom to Mid Valley on Sunday to hunt CNY clothes together. There wasn't any CNY decorations put up that day. We spend most of out times in Jusco scouting where there are lots of sales. I've gotten myself two pieces of blouse, a white pants and dark blue(nearly black) DIESEL jeans.

The two blouse i bought =)

Day 3: 21/1/2008, Mid Valley/The Gardens
Objective: have a walk, accompany grandma

My aunt and cousin bro came to our house around 3 p.m and invite grandma and I for a walk at Mid Valley and The Gardens. They just wanted to collect my cousin bro pants that was left at one of the shops in The Gardens for alteration. As you know it is a weekday, there was very few people walking around at MV moreover at Gardens. I saw this pretty light green chinese blouse at Gardens that cost RM300+. The clothes sold there are all high range and price is more than RM100 onwards. We walked across back to MV.

Grandma and aunt went up to the highest floor to look at feng shui. Cousin bro and me decided to walk alone after they are done looking at feng shui stuff. We went to few boutiques that sell formal clothing and compare the materials, designs, price and whatever we can talk about formal clothes. We went into Guess boutique, saw this plain yellow singlet cost RM199!!!!!! What kind of singlet is that?! Some clothes more expensive than usual clothes we see. As i read the tag properly it is Guess by "Marciano". My cousin start saying MAR-CI-A-NO with slang.

We even walk to Jusco again =p. I saw this red shirt partly traditional design near the entrance. I wanted to buy it but forgotten to bring enough money. So, I waited for grandma to pay. The shirt even have 20% discount!! It is so worth to buy. We arrived at home around 6.30 p.m.

Nice eh? =D

Day 4: 22/1/2008, One UTAMA
Objective: Hunt for shoes, accompany grandpa & grandma

I had my first 12 hours driving class in the morning after waited for two weeks since the last class. It was horrible for me. I don't remember how to control the clutch and break. Thus, always causing the car to 'die'. I practiced the 3-pointer and turn up to hit the pole >.<. I even switch to a wrong gear while doing 3-pointer. I was suppose to change from first gear to reverse gear but............I didn't push much the handle to the right and ended up at fourth gear -.-". This is really embarassing.
Not long after lunch, my aunt came by again and took grandpa, grandma and I to 1U. My grandpa bought a new shoe for RM70+ only. The shoe actually cost RM200+. There was discount 70% for the shoe. Mission accomplished for grandpa. Next is grandma. She didn't buy anything either do I. Somehow we couldn't find anything we like. Not many people shop there and we are free to take pictures whenever we want to. We had to take longer way to go reach upper or lower floor using the lift because my grandpa can't walk far. I took some pictures with aunt's camera of the CNY decorations at the new wing and old wing.

Day 5: 23/1/2008, One Utama

Objective: must get shoes!!!!!

Mom, sis and I walk to Jusco again. I found this shoes, tried it on, like 'em, resonable price (too bad no discount *sigh*) swap sis's credit card *ka-ching!* and I'm done. My sis only got a pair of jeans from Romp. My mom bought new fake yellow flowers for house deco. I am darn tired for shopping 4 days in a row at the same shopping mall.

I decided to follow mom to dance line dancing. I had a light dinner, change to proper exercise clothes and off I go. Suprisingly, I met someone I knew at the court. He is my ex-tuition friend playing basketball with a friend at the court. I did not call out him. I just could not remember his name. I was bored there as I didn't dance for whole 2 hours class. I didn't want to interupt them for they are practising dance for new year performance. Me and my mom returned home right after the class finish.

Me and sis ^^

I have no idea what it means

Finally, the shop is over. I'm darn tired.......can't type much...lazy........ Ok. Time to sleep
