Happy Monday people! I saw this on 9gag a while ago and laughed hysterically that could rival any hyena because come on, look at the photo (no disrespect to Kelly though she’s gorgeous now). So now everytime Monday hits and when I’m feeling blue, I think of this photo and I’m all good again. Monday has never been the same anymore folks
Moving on! Guess what came in the mail on Saturday for me? Had a tough time carting these back home *hugs all the boxes*. Will naturally reveal all of em one by one in my post as the week goes by. I spent alot of time photographing items this weekend as well. And Sairah too (coz she insist on being part of it). So if you see Sairah in the same blue-purple outfit in the next few post, you’ll know why
Any idea what’s inside? Hint: I have a few giveaways in store!!
One VVIP parcel I was on a look out since 2 weeks ago was by Haute Avenue Haute Avenue may sound very the International but it’s a local site that sells high end branded bags at a discounted price. They do have medium range products as well which are wallet-friendly. Each sale on their site last for about a week or so, so it’s the case of siapa cepat dia dapat (early fast bird wins!).
Reckon it’s a Prada bag in there? *dreaming doesn’t hurt!*
So the thing about me is, I like to subscribe to various sale sites. I may not necessary purchase anything but I like to be kept in the loop so I know when a good deal comes by. And in most cases, sometimes you do get ‘rewarded’ for not trying out their site first. SEE no harm subscribing to some sites sometimes I tell you.
In the case of Haute Avenue, I was surprised to see a RM50 discount voucher sent with a NO minimum purchase required. Naturally I was ecstatic and while they were probably hoping I”d be eyeing something more expensive (or say the Prada bag on their site – DO WANT but no money ), but I saw something else, something that would be give me a better satisfaction than a Prada bag (of course I wouldn’t say no to it if anyone wants to buy it for me la).
I placed an order for Sairah’s surprise about 2 weeks ago and didn’t tell her about it. So when I told Sairah I had something for her, she was all eager and excited. She kept asking what’s in the box mommie, what’s in the box??? Oh for mee mee mee???! Then she gave me this BIG smile (that looks like it’s been put alot of effort into, lol) hoping I”d open the box faster.
There a less fake smile, hehe
If I tilt my head to the left would you open the box old lady?
No? How about if I tilt to do the right?
I told her to close her eyes shut while I cut open the box. I was super impressed she took my directions well – she didn’t attempt to peek or cheat whatsoever. SO now I know she’ll actually listen to me well IF there’s a surprise in store for her, heh.
*I hope its a bag I hope its a bag Oh God I hope its a bag*
Told her to slowly open her eyes and this was the expression mommy was rewarded with These photos of her are just absolutely priceless I tell you.
HOLLY MOLLY! For me?!
Could it be???!
O.M.G – NO SHE DIDN”T?!
She looks like she’s almost gonna cry happy tears here. Hey, I’d look like that too if someone surprised me with a bag. Just saying.
Wait, there’s more in the box?!
Sorry Barbie, gotta cheat on you for a minute as I look through my other bag.
Then again, I’m happy to have both.
Couldn’t contain herself and started tearing into the packaging.
Yup, that’s how I look like sometimes when some parcels/packing is too complex to open, it’s frustrating yo.
The look when it’s finally out! Her jaws even dropped bigger when we opened the bag to find tons of Barbie stationery in there.
Even an adult would love this bag I”m sure esp if they’re a Angry Bird fan.
I’m all ready for school, I think
Just.So.Happy! And that’s the look that makes it all worth while to see whenever I surprise my little girl with something.
Looking at all these photos, puts me in a good mood. And I do think that mommies have the natural instinct to buy for their kids naturally and without being told just to see the happy content look on their faces where else daddies always need that extra push from moms if they are gonna buy anything for their kids! Or am I the only one with this problem, heh.
Even as a kid, much of my clothes and toys came from mom when she was working. She used to buy me toys just to see a smile on my face and I’m glad to be working so I can do the same for my child too.
And now the million dollar question, how much did I pay for these?
The Barbie bag was being sold for RM40 while the Angry Bird one was RM30. Shipping was an additional RM15.
BUT as I said, since I was lucky enough to be rewarded with the RM50 discount voucher, you do the maths, let your jaw drop and then go on and hail me as an awesome bargain shopper, heh. I think I deserve that title for just this once.
*Bows to the applause playing in my head*
