There is this shop at The Starling that I have been stalking since day one. Every now and then, I walk in to look-see-look-see and put some of the items on my wishlist in my head. Then I walk over to Daiso (just opposite) to see if I can spot something just as nice for RM5.90.
I am talking about this shop, etc (which stands for Exquisite, Trendy, Chic).
Most of the items here are not something I would buy on a whim because they are on the pricey side.
I love some of the crockery and pots and pans. Then one day lo and behold.
So apa lagi? This auntie quickly march in and start to hunt around those things she coveted with her naughty eyes.
But even with discounts, some items still remain heavy on the pocket (or credit card). So this kedekut auntie walk in walk out and hem and haw.
Never mind that I am stingy or that my cupboards are splitting at the seams, I want something I like.
I started off with 3 colored bowls from this selection. I felt so happy.
But that was not the end of it.
Ah! Ceramic bakeware, I like! I had my eye on this one.
Took me 3 or 4 visits (telling myself, if it is still there, it is meant for me hah..hah..) before I took it home. So happy :)
I saw a few ladies walking out with a package or two.
I know some of you may have a spot of trouble getting your Ketua Pengarah (Director General or in the case of Hainom, King Kong of the House) to approve such acquisitions. Generally speaking, men, they don't understand why we like these things.
But if you are like me and you earn your own keeps, you don't need permission. If it is within your budget, you buy. Or make an excuse. This is my Christmas present to myself (or birthday or whatever).
There is another thing that I want, which I have been eyeing at other places as well.
This. The red one, top shelf on the right. Or shall I get the blue one?
This thing is heavy (and pricey) as hell but very good for cooking stews, sauces or curry. I'll think about it.
Well, one more month to go before we get to the end of the year. Fast, right? Too fast in fact.
I thought of making this my last post for the year to take a break but then some of you might miss me (perasan mode on). So for next month I will still be posting but not as regularly.
