Sunday shopping with Mom at Queensbay and Gurney

This is going to be a very long post ^^ enjoy …

I don’t know whether mom heard such myth….someone told mom that this year in Chinese calendar there are two “May” months. So as the children of your parents, you have to buy 2 pants for your parents… pants means money wor….I really don’t know how true this is…or just a scam that mom wanst to make sure sis and I buy her new pants… lol….but… it’s been quite sometime since I last went shopping with mom.

This Sunday shopping spree I have been planning for 1 week…need 1 week to date my mom…else she will have some other plannings.. lol….

She went to prayers early morning, which I’m too tired to go…so I skipped it…I woke up almost 12 noon only to find out that she just came home *faint*…

So I clean up myself and ordered a take away of Chicken Rice from a stall downstairs when mom was taking a nap πŸ™‚

We got ourselves ready by 2.30pm…off we go to Queensbay, with me as the driver πŸ˜›

When we first reached, we saw Padini on sales…so mom went to find some pants of her liking… went to try…there were a lot of people…and their system kinda sucks in the sense that you are not able to change the size of the clothes/pants you tried when you are in the fitting room…meaning to say, if you got yourself size “M” for a pants and you cant wear it, you want to change to “L” or “S” size… you cannot ask your friends/family to change the correct size and bring it back for you to try it again in the same fitting room… you have to change back to your own pants and line up again with the “correct” size… it is funny isn’t it? The promoter said “cuz if you keep changing, then the line will be longer and you will be trying non-stop”. Hey common la! I’m not taking advantage on trying more clothes but just to change another size so that I know whether I should buy that pants….This might apply to those who really take advantage of trying like 100 clothes which I think is really unfair to others who are waiting in the queue…

but anyway, it is non of my business…cuz I overheard the promoter told some lady…lol…lucky not me…. *blek*…

Anyway, mom bought 2 long pants for her work and leisure…she actually wanted to buy short pants but the size cannot fit… lol….

One thing good about Padini is that they alter your pants for you if it is too long…for FREE! Mom said this is very very good cuz if paying for the alter will cost around RM 3… which she is so happy to save the 6 bucks for 2 pants already…lol… auntie is like that πŸ˜›

Anyway, we’ll have to pay for the pants before they can alter for us… that means mom have to line up for the queue again…well…lucky this time is not that long queue…so…still alright… πŸ™‚

Then this particular promoter which suppose measure mom’s pants for her, didn’t notice that mom went into the fitting room d…so he ask his colleagues “ei, where is that lau ee (Auntie in hokkien but kinda rude)”? whereby he didn’t notice I’m just standing behind there. I just give him a smile and say nothing.

>> Later on I told mom about it and she said why they so rude… well… what can you expect from these promoters? Their pay are not that high and if they can study well, they will not be working there. If they are part-timers, then why should they even bother to treat you nice? I cannot say all are rude….just a few…cannot because of one black sheep and blame the whole group right? πŸ˜›

Padini's pants

Anyway, after done at Padini, mom notice this shop beside Padini, which is selling diamond… I was like “erm…you got money meh?” She said ” pants is a must, but children also can buy earing, bracelet, anklet, necklace for their parents ei… just as long as children buy can d… ==” Kinda have the feelings that my mom is conning me …. lol….

Then we went to Jusco to have a look….but…the clothes were not that nice….

There were a stall promotingΒ  Schwakopf products… bought one moisture kick shampoo, one smooth control conditioner and one rescue repair on Saturday with Missy…. so tempted to buy more… cuz it is 60% + 5% discount…so it is considered super cheap… bought another moisture kick leave-in-moisture on Sunday… for my own stock…lol…I really love Schwakopf hair products… but all the time it is very expensive…so I will not buy it if there is no discount..with the discount now..it is considered really worth it already…Normal price is RM 49…after discount is around RM 19… cool? πŸ™‚

We walked walked around QB… then when we thought of going to Padini to get mom’s pants…mom was so tempted to go into the diamond shop – Aurora..so off we go …

The sales man recommended mom two types of diamond earings.. one was a bit bigger with round cut, another one was smaller with the princess cut… smaller one is much more expensive than the bigger one cuz of its cutting wor… so big one is RM 200 and smaller stone is RM 270… after discount…

Ever wondered how come it is so cheap? Cuz it is synthetic diamond…not real one πŸ˜› and the silverware is made of platinum + sterling… so it is cheaper compare to a real platinum diamond…that I doubt I can afford to pay for it…

Mom asked me which one should her choose.. hmm this point of time… you cannot say the cheaper one cuz she might like the expensive one…and if you say the expensive one…ahem…kinda pain in the chest oso ler…. so…I choose to say wisely which is “you see which one you like then you choose la…since I’m sharing with sis ei…so you choose the one you like most”… cool ler?

LOL…. at the end… mom choose the bigger stone with cheaper price… erm…I’m not sure whether she really didn’t want us to spend too much or what but she said bigger stone is like more worth it.. lol… well… the bigger one more noticeable lo… lol…

Aurora - Synthetic DiamondAurora - Sythetic Diamond

After everything settled in Queensbay, we headed to Gurney… reason why? Cuz there was a health product introduction in G Hotel at 8pm…so we went there a bit earlier for dinner….

Finally I have the chance to eat Winter Warmers again…OMG! I have been craving for their “iced mixed fruits cocktail” for the whole week….finally get to drink it again…how I wish they can open another francise at Queensbay… but they didn’t… sad sad.. they open another shop in Sunway Carnival.. more sad…..:(

Oh, mom saw this cute t-shirt for baby ei…thought of buying it for baby…but don’t have baby’s size…so we have chosen another design… cute as well πŸ™‚

Baby Darren's new shirt

The health talk started quite late…supposed was 8pm … but they delayed till 8.45pm…wtf! then they kept repeating the same things over and over again…sien…the whole talk ended at 10.15pm…wtf!

Reached home 11pm…sooooooooo tired…. need to snap pictures for what I have spent today… total spent: RM 310 + RM 19

Overall, mom back home happily with the gifts … but I’m broke again… *sigh* … positively thinking: I spent for my mom…so still worth it πŸ™‚
