Suddenly, I do not know what to write. In fact, I have wanted to leave this blog, untouch for many more days. But I am afraid some of you may suffer withdrawal symptoms. So, being the kind, gentle, sweet, friendly, angelic soul that I am, I decided to blog.
I realised there is only 21 days to Christmas and I haven’t bring out my Christmas tree yet. After looking at all the elaborate Christmas decorations in the shopping malls in KL, I have a bit of low self-esteem where my 4 ft Christmas tree is concerned. I bought a box of Christmas tree ornaments from IKEA which costs only RM19.90, As seen on TV price, for 48 pieces of silver balls, hearts and other ornaments. But suddenly, those Christmas baubles look so plain when compared to those Baroque style ornaments.
Talking about KL, I seriously wonder if KL-ites are all millionaires? They thronged the shopping malls even on Monday mornings. They jammed the car parks at shopping malls even on Tuesday. They packed the boutiques selling designer brands products even on Wednesday. No wonder our PM-in-waiting said, “Semua ok, tarak recession.” Just look at those people shopping! I wonder if I am being pessimistic in anticipating a recession and is Matthias Chang going to lose his RM5K bet? People are spending money and I am the paranoid one, not wanting to buy anything except for a few books. We passed by Coach bags store and my #2 son, in trying to get me to spend money, so that he can spend even more without feeling guilty, nudged me, “Ma, Coach bag, sale, quickly go and buy.”
So that pretty sums up my trip. I touch, see, envy but I didn’t spend a dime. In fact, none of us spend much because we stayed with my brother as our original plan was to stay for two nights but we dragged on to four nights ‘cos one of the car was sent to the mechanic and we have too many malls to go.
Now, I wonder where are my blogging marbles? I seem to not know what to write. Very strange for someone who can posts 3-4 posts in a day.
