How do you all do?
I’m entering the 3rd week of the term, 11 more to go. Thesis aside, I’m enjoying this term. It’s my 2nd to the last, I have to make it count.
Okay, let’s talk about shopping now! I don’t really like doing my shopping at malls here because to be honest, it’s quite expensive. I like Topshop but the prices are just a bit too much. People are people used to be my go-to place but their clothes shrink. As much as I want to shop at Ukay-Ukay’s, the clothes that fit me aren’t that nice at all. When I do have the time, I go to Divisoria because I get the best deals (I’m a great haggler) and I’m very careful with my clothes, so they all last very long. Doesn’t really matter where they come from, really.
When I am abroad (particularly Singapore and Hong Kong) I go crazy for Cotton On, which is an Australian brand. Before I met CO, I didn’t shop that much because I never encountered a place where almost everything is 2 for $20, $30 and if you get lucky, you get a shirt free! (for those going to Singapore and Malaysia and will be there up to September 22, they are having the 2 shirt +1 free promo!)
Fuck F21 and H&M (just fucking kidding I love you H&M), Cotton On is my place. I like the store because it’s not so big, so you won’t have any problems spotting everything you want. I find it hard to shop at F21 because it’s too overwhelming. There are so many things to see, I end up not buying anything (Laurene can vouch for this).
So imagine my surprise when Cotton On Aus finally launched their online shopping site! I went crazy, I swear. It took me 2 months to finally decide which clothes I wanted to buy. Downside to this is they don’t have the 2 for blah blah promo. I don’t care I still love CO. Comfiest clothes in the world, I swear.
I ordered these on September 11, I got them on the 15th. Four for you, Australian Post! (They also sent it straight to my house!)
Let us move on before I become tempted to order again okay?
Last Saturday, I went to the 32nd Manila International Book Fair with Aldrin (Hi pogi!). I saved up a lot of money for this, and if I didn’t have great self-restraint I would have spent all of it.
I’ve read most of these but I don’t have my own copy so I thought it was time that I did. I also want to thank Aldrin for not letting me pay for Beedle the Bard. Love you!!!
Last and not the least, Daniel (who is from Melbourne) sent me a package, and I guess it was because I told him I like Wes Anderson films and that I love Simon Pegg. Bb listens like a girl<3
I picked it up today!!
Thanks again, Dan! You’ll be getting yours soon, I promise.
I really like getting stuff from the mail, even if they’re postcards or letters. I just really like the feeling.
Do you like getting mail?
Night for now!
