My current shopping list

Singapore is so boring, everywhere you go, you see the same kind of people and the same kind of malls. From downtown up to the heartlands, the malls are of the same kind and the range of stuff that they offered are also of the same kind! So boring!

I had been shopping for the past few days looking for places to spend my bonus but somehow, I think its better to save up my money.. I was looking for 1)a proper pair of working shoes, 2)a tote bag, 3)a pair of bra, 4) a watch and 5)some working clothes. The only thing that I managed to find was the tote bag, which I finally got from John Little this evening. The rest? Still in progress of locating..

1) Working shoes. I have tried my favorite store, Charles & Keith, but could not managed to find one comfortable and good looking one. Guess its tough for the 2 criteria to come together when one is talking about ladies shoes. Comfortable? Get a pair of old maid's shoes, those black PVC kind which only old maids would wear. Since I am not ready to label myself as an old maid yet, so no matter how comfy it is, I will never buy such shoes! Good looking ones? They come with heels that kill and I rather not take the chance in killing my spine slowly.

2) Tote bag. After walking around Orchard, Marina before and over the CNY holidays, I finally managed to find the right one at Jurong Point, of all places. I should have save my time and just head to some nearby shopping malls instead of going downtown and wasting my time! The cute little bag was hanging there while I was shopping around looking for the first and third items on my list. So happy that I finally got it!

3) A pair of bra. Ok, this is one item which I will not hesitate to spend. Its my breasts for goodness sake! I need a proper piece of support equipment for them manz..! Still looking in progress.... Anyone interested to go with me to shop for this item? :D

4) A watch. Been looking for a nice pair of watch since eons and I have yet to find one which fits my budget and my criteria and also my image, as per what a friend said. Watches are supposed to carry your image. Actually I found one, its called Criteria from Seiko but this little piece of time telling device is expensive man.. Going to set me back by a few hundred bucks! I shall see if I can get a cheaper alternatives this weekend, otherwise I might just go ahead and get Ms Criteria.

5) Working clothes. Its either too auntie looking or too long or too tight or too expensive. And I always feel very disgusted with my body when buying clothings. So sad.. I need more exercise...

There you go, my shopping list for the next couple of months. I am going to be so broke man....

April? You can tahan till then??

Haha... if you can, then save up and dont shop here. Because most probably you will spot someone wearing the same clothes/bags/shoes as you!

I dont shop in Singapore at all. Because I am lazy to go all the way to town and also I dont like that everyone go for the same brand and wear the same clothing...

Hee... if you need help in Bangkok hor, let me know lor. I will be most glad to help!!!!

Now I am itching to go for a shopping holiday liao!!
