Last week, I found that both my flat shoe and my sports shoe need replacement. So I need to get a new pair of shoe before the Chinese New Year. If not I have to wait until CNY is over before I can shop for the shoe. I try not to buy any shoe during the 15 days of CNY. Some Chinese pantang buying shoes during CNY, as they believe it will bring you bad luck. Me and my mom don’t know how true it is. But she always avoid buying shoes during these 15 days. One year, not sure why, my mom bought a pair of shoe during these 15 days of CNY. And that year my mom was really bad luck. So since then, she would not buy shoe anymore during CNY. So I guess, it will be best for me not buying any shoe during CNY too. Don’t know how true it is but I don’t want to take any risk! I don’t want to have bad luck!
I also need to get a new purse. Existing one the strap is almost coming off long time ago. I could not find any that I liked during my last shopping trip many months back. My mom told me that there is sales at Parkson. And she saw there are quite a lot of the shoe designs that she think I will like it. So yesterday after work, me and hubby went to the nearby Parkson at Bandar Park Old Klang Road to do our last minute shopping, without the kids. :D
We first passed through the handbag and purse section. So I stopped by and found a purse that I liked. Ooh got 50% discount – Great. :) Next we went to the ladies shoe section. Wow lots of selections available. Shopping become so easy without the 2 kids around. I can browse around slowly, trying out the shoe to see if it looks nice on my feet (if Lynn is around, she will also take some shoe from the shelves and put on herself. As if she’s the one buying! LOL! ) Hubby also was looking around, trying to spot any pair of shoe that he thinks might look good on me. If kids are around, he will have to help keep an eye on the kids, or take them for a walk (so the kids won’t disturb me). He won’t be able to pay attention shopping together with me. And he will also getting tired taking care the 2 active kids, thus he will be more likely looking forward to go home than shopping. So I was really glad that no kids were with us! :D
Surprisingly I managed to get myself 2 pairs of shoes from there. Normally I don’t manage to buy shoe easily. Either don’t look good on my feet, no size for me (especially during sales), or not comfortable to wear. In the past, I had to run few places before I managed to buy a pair for shoe. My last purchase of the shoe was 2 years ago while I was pregnant with Hao. :S
Next we went to shop a belt for hubby. He also needs a replacement for his old belt. That was purchased probably 2 years ago too. Hahaha! Both of us are not the shopping type. We also don’t bother to get CNY clothes. We went to pick up the kids from my parents house after we were done with the shopping. Oh yeah, I managed to get myself a short knitted jacket too on the way to our car. :D
These are the things that we have bought
Got a free gift from buying the shoe. A small notebook.
