CNY and Valentine’s card hand made by Ryan (assisted by teachers of course). Now I totally know how one feels when receiving something hand made by our own kid. Sooooooooo sooooooo ’lum‘.
That day, hubby and I sneaked out for some ‘pat toh’ time. We went for Sincere private sale at Suntec. Just when we thought economy is bad, we were greeted by a long queue outside the showroom. For a split moment, I thought of leaving but the kiasu effect sunked in. We joined the Q.
After 10 minutes we joined the crowd inside. Brands like Cartier, Franck Muller, Bvlgari, and some Italians brands were going at 50% – 80%. I saw a nice Bvlgari watch that I quite like. It was going at $3000 after discount but it was a boy’s size. The girl’s size are all sold out. It was not easy to get close to the display glasses. Singaporeans really does have higher disposable income than most Malaysians. One lady was calling out to her friend happily after paying for a $8k Franck Muller watch as if she had just striked lottery (canto: chap to po). Then I overheard a bunch of uncles demanding the salesgirl to show them Franck Muller watches with at least $50k price tag. They wanted nothing but only the big items. I guess they have ‘high maintenance tai-tais’ to ‘feed’. Blehh…
Since I can’t get the Bvlgari, I went over to the Franck Muller counter. I was really hoping to get a steal buy from at least the Long Island collection but arrghh.. we came too late. 3rd day into the sale, most of the value items are gone. Then I saw one from the Chrono collection. I absolutely love it but even after the 80% knock off, it will still burn a big hole in
hub’s the pocket. I chose to return the watch to the salesgirl and never turned back. We left the showroom empty handed.
Cantik or not? *picture from FranckMuller*
After spending an hour in the showroom, our tummies were rambling. We went to Bakerzin for a very unromantic lunch. Hahaha.. I ordered chicken curry and hubs had pasta.
We stopped by Toys R Us before heading home. Bought a plastic dart game for Ryan. Something for the little boy on the Valentine’s Day.
Plastic dart toy. If you see this, word of advise is, don’t buy. It doesn’t quite worked as it supposed to. Complete waste of money. Now it’s hanging on the wall like a picture frame.
*Updated. Few days later, hubs went for a business trip to Jakarta. He bought us belated Valentine’s day pressie. Ryan got a green dinasour and Mac Truck and wifey gets another SKII Miracle Water. Thanks B. Wifey is sorry she did not get anything for hubs because wifey is unemployed now… but it’s the ‘lurve’ that counts right…
