About a month ago ikin (my niece) lend me her "Confession of A Shopholic" book by Sophie Kinsella( ikin is now resting at home reading a whole collection of Sophie Kinsella beside her Nigella Lawson books)..i told ikin i am never like that girl, i am not a shopholic..the story is good but it is too much..how could you cannot sleep at nite just because you cannot buy one thing you like,how could you cannot do your work thinking about a gorgeous scarve you saw in a shop's window, how could your palm sweats and your heart goes wild over seeing a beautiful skirt..that's too much,that's too dramatic, that's too unrealistic..so i am not like her, i am nothing like her,i am far. far away from her.. i buy when its necessary, i buy when there's a good bargain, i buy after careful consideration..(except when i was pregnant with the twins and because of the hormones (blame it on the hormones ok.. i went crazy buying all Laura Ashley dresses.. if i count the cost now i can buy a gorgoeus chandelier, i went beserk buying all clothes from ZARA that i have the whole collection of baby dolls dresses from One Utama ZARA) So I am not a shopholic.
I am not a Shopholic but i am a human..i have flaws and weaknesses..last week i went with my husband to buy lights for our new house, we hunted from one shop to another, we combed the whole area, not even one stone left unturned (hehh..hehh..that's too much).. we found a pair of beautiful Laura Ashley's lights..they are just perfect, i love the offwhite and pale green colour,i like the crystal drops and i like everything about it as i always see it hanged in laura Ashley's shop..so my husband agreed and we bought it, we also love a pair of dining lights plus the bedroom lights.. my husband paid and i didn't asked for more. Hang next to only pair of laura Ashley we bought was another beautifulllllll living room's Chandelier and the only different from the pair that i have is: it's bigger with numerous crystal drops in tear's shape. I called it a laura Ashely bigger sister, she was originally ordered by a lady for her house since her house ( a bungalow) got a 33 feet height ceiling,the chandelier becomes too short.. so i love her ..very very much infact but as the price is high (well according to my small budget la..), i just settled with whatever we bought and told my self that when i got bonus end of this month i will go back and pick her up..this was 4 days ago..somehow i cannot forget her, i think about her day and nite..what if the lady changes her mind, what if somebody walks in fall in love with her and grab her away.. the worst is that is the the only unit that they have.. so i think about her Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.. i become like the girl in Sophie Kinsella's book.. i become too much, i become obsess, i become dramatic..so today i went to the shop..the moment i reached the shop i went straight to the 2nd floor..pewwwhh..relief..she is stilled there..i asked the girl for a very very good price until she nearly cried.. i got a good price..the bigger sister of laura ashley is now mine..mine..mine and mine.The best thing is after a few years, if i got bored with tear shape crystal drops i can order new design and colours.
So that is my story.. I am not a Shopholic.. I can control myself (except when i was pregnant..i am not pregnant now..i just got my mens).. I only buy good bargains and i only buy after careful consideration..therefore Sophie Kinsella is too much..too dramatic..you cannot go crazy over a piece of thing! May be i will post a picture tomorrow..may be..may be i am to obsess that i don't want to share it with anybody..hahh..haah..don't worry i am just teasing whoever is reading here..its not that great ok.. its not the 30,40 grands Chandelier..she is just a beautiful lady,elegant,feminine and down to earth just like me..hehh..hehh again.
