Shopping trip

Happy New Year!

Been 2 weeks since i last blogged.I last wrote while in Paris and i said i'd promise to write while i was in london kan.but london was too hectic that i couldnt find time to sit down and blog.
My London and Paris trip was sangat was great because i had my mom, cousins , aunties and uncles with me on that trip.But the best part was getting to meet my youngest brother who's studying there.

Boxing day was madness,i've heard stories about it.About people lining up at 4 am to get into the stores that opens at 11am..The lines were so long that we actually ended up at the back alley as we only started lining up at 9.30 am.
Imagine waiting for hours in the terribly cold weather, furthermore it was reported to be the coldest winter in like 20 years plus..London rarely snows, but we got to experience snow.
Once the stores open at 11am.people were gushing into the stores and practically pushing each other and just grabbing whatever was vultures waiting for preys..whenever the salesperson restocked the empty shelves everyone would practically dive towards it.i thought i was going to die in that stampede like situation.heheh.imagine how my husband would feel if his wife died while shopping on boxing day..

The items were super cheap.perfume sets were less than 30 pounds.u could get a pair of jimmy choo or ferragamo shoes for 90 pounds which is less than rm500..
But the best bargain was in Primark..dirt cheap items.i got working shirts that cost me 3.50 pounds. i got a clutch for 3 pounds. i got a belt for 2 pounds.i got a top for 2 pounds..and the list goes on and was sooo cheap!..nak pengsan

On boxing day, i didnt get myself any designer handbags, as i wanted to wait to check out the famous Bicester Village outlet stores..We took a train there 2 days took us an hour to get there and when we got was like dying and going to heaven.. Gucci, Prada, Anya , Ferragamo , Dior, Celine, and all the designer labels were there..Ya Allah..the prices were soooo much u can get a Prada handbag for 250 pounds.anya hindmarch handbag for 200 pounds. gucci for less than 200 pounds pon ada!..but of course the designs at Bicester village was last season's but who cares. Best gila!!!If only i had mooooorrreeee money with me.

We really didnt do much sight seeing in London because for 6 days we were so engrossed in shopping/window shopping..Imagine i got a Longchamp traveling bag for 33 pounds.CRAZY! i can go on and on about shopping in wonder people say that their christmas/boxing day/new year sales are sooo worth it..

While in London i met up with 2 of my friends who are also from Subang .They too were on it made London more exciting because u have a friend there with u.

When it was time to go back, mom and i were especially sad because we had to leave my brother.sedih sgt when the cab drove away and we waved goodbye.. haiih...
I'm sooo going to get boy to bring me to London again this year..Insyallah.
