Am not gonna lie, it makes mom happy too
Sairah is a HUGE mall rat. She reminds me of myself once a upon a time where I could spend hours, if not days in a mall You could blind fold me (though I don’t know why you would wanna do that) and I would I literally know the mall’s layout and my way around the mall at the top of my head. I know right, such a waste of brain space memorizing mall layouts, lol, but those were the days.
These days, I rarely hang out in malls, infact I often get lost and forget where some stores are. And I find it also tiring to spend long hours in a mall. My legs and back (and empty wallet!) tend to cave in after a while. But come weekend, we do put aside at least 2 hours tops and we usually use it as a little treat for Sairah who is mostly cooped up at home for 5 days a week. We’ll go to a mall to have lunch and mostly to redeem my vouchers and let the little one play in the kiddie centres (if there’s one) because to see a huge smile plastered on her face makes it TOTALLY worth it.
And as always, like mom, she also can remember the routes we use so even before almost pulling into the mall, she’ll go ‘we’re hereeeeee’ and proceed to grin the entire time.
I’m in a mall and got a treat to boot! This calls for a BIG grin on my face.
These photos was taken last Saturday when we went for her checkup. I think we probably spend even longer time in a mall whenever there’s a checkup involved because we have to take a number and wait for a minimum of 3 hours before it’s our turn to see her pead. So what else to do except hit the malls and window-shop
But of course an even longer time at the mall is something the husband is afraid of because that only means a drained wallet by the time we leave the mall, hehe.
After a good shopping session, feeding my growing child a good yummy meal is a must too.
Heh, kids eat for free they say?!
Bring me one chocolate cake and make it stats.
Like a true shopaholic, she actually sat down quietly, ruffled through her shopping bag and started looking and scrutinizing her buys.
Where’s my pizza?! I want pizza!
There, if I grin like this, maybe I’ll get it faster?
It’s been a while since I did some physical shopping for Sairah so here’s our mini haul. I got 2 tops from FOS and if you’re looking for a great cheap buy for the kids, you have to check em out. They do have some gorgeous items from time to time and did I mention how cheap and affordable it is??
Butterfly top (H&M okie!) was only RM15 while the blue stripey top cost us RM25. Manage to get her a nice black leggings from Pumpkin Patch at half price and paid only RM29 for it. Total haul was RM70. Savvy shopper much?
Sairah modelling her cheapo butterfly top. Work it baby! I love how it actually suits the purple leggings she already has on. I remember paying only RM10 for it. Love the color combination seriously.
This stripey top is a little loose on her but I love the unique details on the front. Not bad FOS
Still matches her purple leggings!
If that’s not enough I also bought this lovely (and pocket-friendly) Braided orange top on this site and got it for her since it was on sale. Do check em out. A nice white legging ought to go well with it.
Btw I”m also TOTALLY obsessing over Next’s 2013 Summer collection. The collection is SO amazing that it actually got sold out on their website! I’m contemplating getting these (but of course I”d like to buy their ENTIRE collection) for Sairah but they will cost a whole lot than we’re used to paying. Sigh, wish money really does grow on tree. What do you think of these? Why can’t we find such pretty finds in KL, hmpf.
P.s: Do check out this video of Sairah singing to Somebody That I Used To Know (we love the Wote cover better) – all those times of singing it to her has finally paid off She makes me so proud in this video!
