Just to give you an idea of how unpredictable our tropical weather is... it was sunny when I parked my car at the open carpark. I took a short walk to the bank under the scorching heat. Since I finished early, I decided to pop into the CD shop to get a new CD for YK.
Without any warning, it began raining cats and dogs. With no umbrella, I had to hang around in the mall. Naturally, I went shopping. After trying several outfits at Isetan, I found nothing spectacular.
Still raining... So, Esprit was next. I managed to get 2 new t-shirts for the kids. Just as I was about to leave the store, a cute little pleated skirt caught my eye. It's marked down too. I had to buy it.
Then I wandered into Marks & Spencer and fell in love with a nice black top that would match my new pleated skirt. But it clung too tightly to my belly.... I was sad to leave it behind. Maybe it'll fit better after my banana diet but heck, I'm sick of bananas! So, I bought a jar of raspberry jam.
The raspberry jam and pleated skirt from Esprit.
The colourful ethnic dresses in 'Fond' caught my eye. Maybe I can find a new outfit to wear for the wedding dinner this friday. The sales lady's enthusiasm was quite infectious. She brought out some marvelous outfits for me to try and I ended up buying one blouse and 4 skirts. I found a white shirt for YK and even signed up as a VIP member for life which means I can come back and spend more money.
That's enough damage done within a short time, I had to get out of the mall! Thankfully, the rain had stopped.
yes..financial damage...shopping is good for a girl's soul! ha!
Show us photos of you in the new outfits!
Sounds like you done well with the new clothes! Are you glad it rained now?! I love buying and wearing new clothes.
Enjoy your jam!
Moral of the lesson is - always park your car in a weather-proof parking garage :)
You know what, I haven't bought any outfit for 2 years (liao) :)
blame it on the rain ;)
whatever you do
don't put the blame on you
blame it on the rain yeah, yeah
i can't believe i am quoting a milli vanilli song...god i feel so old.
The rain not only can cause damage to the environment, but also to your wallet. That's a lot for a day. However, so long as you are happy. Once in a while is ok. hehe... so don't pop into a shopping complex next time on a rainy day. A cafe would be better !!
I've tagged you, dear :)
Yah, yesterday I was in Orchard Road (the shopping district in Singapore) and I remember what you all said... so I didn't duck into any stores :-)
Well, it wasn't raining too, so no reason to linger around in the mall.
When I was walking home from work on Thursday, I was caught in what can only be described as a squall - even though I was on dry land. Without warning, the sky opened up, pea sized hail started plummeting, and the wind picked up to a frightening speed. It was almost tornado like. I grabbed my umbrella out of my bag, but the wind was so strong it actually bent the metal frame. I ducked under an awning on the side of a building. Weather is so freaky anymore. I'm glad you were able to make good use of the time you were waiting it out! ;)
