A maze of a mall that is!!
On Saturday we sorta slept late and had a slow morning for a change, and then we took ourselves off to Primi for lunch. This used to be a regular thing for us- eating out for lunch or breakfast on a weekend I mean- and its been a long time since we could afford to just do it. And it was SO cool to do it again. I had the most divine G&T cocktails- one with grapefruit and mint and one with blueberry and mint- that were perfect for the hellishing heat, and we had a lovely lunch with just us two.
Last week I went to an Oriental mall near where we live and I literally got lost inside once or twice- the place doesn’t seem to have any kind of layout plan, and I am usually pretty good in a shopping mall! I’d never been to a Chinese mall though, and I had a very entertaining trip around looking at all the funny stuff the shelves are filled with. I was actually looking for a Sibling Supper gift, but I found LOADS of baking tools for next to nothing! It was awesome!
Then on Saturday afternoon my Glugs and I headed for the same mall as we had been told there was a big open “warehouse” type shop I hadn’t seen.
I had such a giggle at some of the shop names inside the mall section, like “Lady Chamber” and “Happy Sundry“! 😀
We strolled around for a few hours, acquiring jewellery, shoes, hair accessories, fans (all for me) AND I found my horrendous Sibling Supper gift too!
Its quite incredible what you can find in these shops! Everything from feminine hygiene products (in the party shop no less) to wedding dresses! There are wigs, cooking and baking utensils, clothing, decor, crockery and Christmas decorations! Granted, some of the stuff I wouldn’t touch with a barge pole- like the hair dye- but there are other items that are fabulously affordable.
