Christmas Shopping

8 Dec

It was a long weekend last week because it was His Majesty the King’s Birthday and Father’s Day so I went out and did a little browsing and Christmas shopping for family and friends. I went to two shopping malls, Central Chitlom and Central Rama 3. There are discounted items and promotions everywhere; had I not controlled myself I could have bought a lot of clothes for myself. Goodness me! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, I just got a small something from the department store, had it wrapped (free gift wrapping :)) and headed to the grocery.

I went out the next day again; went to Central Rama 3 this time as it is close to my apartment and there is a Skinfood shop there. I was looking for Skinfood Jojoba Oil Nail Essence but unfortunately they don’t have it. I grabbed a foot massage lotion and hand cream instead. Most of the items are discounted as well because Skinfood is celebrating its 6th year in Thailand. Well… as for my shopping experience, I kinda don’t like one of the sales assistants (SA1) there, she is not friendly and bordering on being rude. She forced me to rate them or probably their service and handed me a tiny piece of paper with boxes to tick. The other sales assistant told her I can’t speak in Thai. She (SA1) made face and told me to just tick the box. Argh! I hate it when someone pushes you to do something you don’t know and understand. Although I got irritated, I still ticked a box anyway without knowing what it was. ย There was no point in me complaining or arguing because we might not understand each other anyway. It was actually my first time to buy Skinfood products at a physical shop (and not from online sellers) and I didn’t like the experience. I am not sure how they fare at other Skinfood shops, though. Ooppsss… sorry for the digression.

I walked around the shops and browsed dresses, shoes and whathaveyou. I was really holding myself not to get something because I have just bought skincare, make up and some dresses recently so I shouldn’t be tempted. I wanted to get something, even a nail polish, at The Face Shop (my fave! customer service is tops at the Central Rama 3 branch, too) but I am expecting a set of the Clean Face series so no buying from there, too.

I went to Muji (and it’s on sale, too) and checked its wide variety of items. I like Muji because it’s so zen. I got a few things, too and have them wrapped as well. I will go back ย on the weekend. Or I might go to CentralWorld and check out Uniqlo and Forever 21 ๐Ÿ™‚

What is a mall outing without food? Since I was craving for tonkatsu for ages, I had katsudon and tonkatsu in miso sauce in both days haha. And I said I was on no-pork diet ๐Ÿ˜‰

Katsudon

Tonkatsu in Miso Sauce

And of course…

Iced Green Tea

It’s going to be another long weekend this coming weekend as Constitution Day is on Saturday. Monday will be a holiday. ย I might be malling or dining out again, but with friends this time. How about you, what do you do on holidays and long weekends?

Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚
