Thank God for blogs, I even have the photo, date and price of stuffs I bought.
Click, click and voila, I know that I bought one pair of sunglasses for only RM31 on the 22nd of August last year. Within six months, my toddler had -wanked- yanked off one side of the sunglasses.
So there goes a sunglasses that suits my beautiful face. 🙂
Good thing that piece of plastic costs only RM31 and not RM310.
So, I had been out shopping for a few weekends to find a replacement. Sunglasses is a very important accessories. Trust me. It eithers smack you down on the dirt ground and label you ‘Ah Soh’ (old aunties) or raise you up on cloud nine and spells ‘still saham tinggi’. (high value)
Imagine some ‘Whiter shade of pale’ music playing in the background…..you get down from your car on a sunny day, the sunlight playing magic with your parprika red hair……your lipstick glimmering in the sun, the breeze blowing your transparent, black, chiffon blouse…. Then, you stride, step by step, imagine that you are walking on Beverly Hills like Pretty Woman…..I tell ya, even a monk also can pause to see.
At first, I saw this similar looking sunglasses from Oakley. It costs a freaking RM760 (plus minus 25% discount). I did a calculation in my head and it probably is over RM600. The shop taukeh-soh wanted to let me try but sigh…..I know that it is no point to touch something I would never spend my money on. So, I politely told her ‘no, over my budget…..’
Givenchy – 132 British pounds!
Then, I found this super lansi lanyong (snobbish) shop in Gurney. First time ever I see a spectacle shop without the standard Ingrand Optical style. It spells ‘Expensive’. And a similar looking sunglasses like the above by Givenchy costs RM1,630! Chiiiiiisin…..
They can provide ‘Bayar Bulan’ or monthly instalments. Come on, folks. Never ever get tempted to buy something you cannot afford. Buying a piece of sunglasses on instalment is crazy, ok? Discipline, kiddoes. Don’t do it, you will end up with lots of debts until your old age. Unless, of course, you have sugar-daddy to foot the bills.
So, the practical me finally found the perfect sunglasses that I can afford to let my toddler tear apart. Only RM35.90 from Parkson. Pay with vouchers I exchanged from my Bonuslink points. Free! Free! Free! It looks exactly like the above Givenchy and it spells ‘cool’ because there is no brand, not even a casing!
I am now wearing sunglasses at night because I lurve, lurve, lurve my new shades so much! When the sun comes up, I am going to do the ‘Whiter Shade of Pale’ walk. See can make the vegetable seller or fishmonger go a whiter shade of pale anot.
So remember hor….your sunglasses is very, very important. It either makes you look like a pimp or Bond. Don’t buy a sunglasses that suit Brad Pitt if your face looks like William Hung, ok?
