Nose warehouse sale & Big Bad Wolf Sale

Heard positive & negative comments about Nose warehouse sales in FB. Previously I had bad experience with RSH security guard a few years back – he didn’t allow me to enter though there was still 5-10minutes before closing. Since then, I had banned going to Nose or RSH warehouse sales.

Decided to end the ban since I was already in PJ area heading to Big Bad warehouse sale – need to pass through Subang Jaya anyway.

Some available parking inside the warehouse area. The sales area is disappointedly small. Only about 2-4 offer bins per size and the shoes were just thrown into the offer bin. Most of the shoes conditions were worse than pasar mlm, with marks inside and outside the shoes.

The bags were in better condition but not my type. Saw some really serious bling bling :)

I bought 1 of the silver sequins dinner purse. RM20 only!

Saw some Africans buying in boxes. Maybe taking them back home to relatives or sell again? Some guys shopped with gf too.

Next to Big Bad sale. Ah it’s quite far even from Sunway area. As usual, Jln Kewajipan was jammed like ****. I took the other way (right) and just before a small sign to MAEPS on left, I went straight and toured Putrajaya. Quite a lot of trees and wide roads. Not a bad place to live. If Malaysia were not racially misaligned.

Good thing about MAEPS/Big Bad sale was there were lots of feeder bus from car park (Hall A on the sign) to the almost entrance! Kudos to organizers for making it convenient and safe for customers.

Found lots of my favourite authors. Grabbed them (almost all). LJ Smith’s books (not Vampire Diaries series) but I wasn’t sure if I had read them before years ago? They sounded familiar… then there was JD Robb. OMG ALL PAPERBACKS in big fonts that my mom will find it easy to read! Then there was Iris Johansen & Sherrilyn Kenyon! At that time, I had about 10+ books.

Then mom SMS that it would be better if I buy books that cannot be rented. Usually and all these years, we had been renting books from Central Market. The Indian guys are ok though once in awhile, they may charge more. Not sure if they deliberately wanted to eat more $ or they were getting old? Rental’s RM2-6 normally but you need to give deposit, which is fair because you’d never know when customers don’t return the books.

So in the end, I ended up with these:

Edie Jarolim – Am I boring my dog?
David Bach – Smart Women Finish Rich
Sherrilyn Kenyon – Acheron
Janet Evanovich – Wicked Appetite
Robert & Emi Kiyosaki – Rich Brother Rich Sister

I think I may have read part of Smart Women in Borders before.. And I don’t remember if I had read Acheron’s book but I had certainly read about him before with Simi. Anyway, I can reread. Acheron’s 1 of my fav characters in the Dark-Hunter novels :)

Too bad no mag that I liked.

All books that I bought were RM8 each, except Smart Women Finish Rich at RM10. SO WORTH IT!

Do you love girls?

While having dinner with Chai, Nat, NeverZzz and Mich at Swensen’s (waiting for pics from NeverZzz), NeverZzz advised Chai, “If you want a bf, you must put yourself out there.”

Hhmmm.. He continued, “In a research, guys would accept a girl easier than guys chase girls.”

“So you mean, guys are cheap?”

“Noooooo! It’s just that guys wouldn’t reject you if you talk with him. If a girl talks – a stranger – talks to me also, I wouldn’t ignore her. I would chat with her lah.”

“Oooo…”

We all looked at his gf, Nat. Nat was eyeing him from the corner of her eyes.

“So you really would accept her?” I asked him.

He looked at his gf, Nat beside him and shrugged, “Not accept lar hahah… but I would chat with her la, no problem with that what!”

“So you gals should chase guys instead of waiting for them to chase you,” he reasoned. “Because guys chase gals also because the gals gave signal,” he wagged his bushy eyebrows, “so the guys get encouragement to go talk to the girl. Mostly lar. But I don’t need encouragement.”

He smirked. “My friends told me, to chat with any girl also can.”

“Ho!!”

“So… Nat was the 1 who eye you last time?”

“Ya lah! HAHAH!”

Nat punched him lightly on his arm.

“You also larh, you love books. So you go to Book fairs,” he said to me.

“How do you know I love to read?” I asked, surprised. Must be my thick spec, innocent, blur face look & not into gym lifestyle.

“Ha…. I know!”

Book Fairs actually are only held once or twice per year in PWTC! I’ve been waiting for it for ages for cheap magazines but nowadays, I’ve found a new hobby – watching entertainment online! :p

I agree – putting yourself out there increases the chance of getting a boyfriend.

Car, BraveSafe & I were talking animatedly about something.

Out of the blue, BraveSafe asked me, “Do you actually prefer girls?”

I looked at her, eyes wide, “Ha?”

Everyone was talking at almost the same time, I turned back to Car and continued our topic. I didn’t mean to be rude or avoid her question but I had forgotten to reply BraveSafe.

Just because I’m not dating anyone right now or had ever been deeply in love, it doesn’t mean I’m a lesbian. I just haven’t met the one who makes my heart beat faster, get giddy with happiness and feel my heart is going to burst from having so such fullness.

Just because someone has dated or is dating or even married, it doesn’t mean that someone is into his/her partner. Just as having a marriage certificate just means you got married, it doesn’t mean that you are loyal to your marriage.

But then, I love collecting fashion pictures – everyone close will know that I have lots of pretty gals pics – more so than guys pictures. There are just soooooooooo many beautiful females around, more so than handsome males. No offense, guys – it’s a fact :p Or it’s just that there are more online pictures of females than males.

Happy Virginity’s Day!

Grandmother’s birthday

As with every year, my aunties and uncles, cousins and nephews would meet up for my grandmother’s birthday. Without fail, we would gather earlier before dinner so that the older generations could gamble. The younger generations (cousins & I) and my mom (she doesn’t gamble mahjong or cards) would hangout somewhere else like the nearest mall. Now that the Cousins are dating, left mom and I. We had said that we would yamcha among cousins but since they are dating, they have no time for yamcha. Unless I get a boyfriend – then we can have triple date yamcha.

This time (and uh, previous times too), father dropped mom and I off beside the bridge, then he and grandmother went off to GambleHappyLand. I wanted to check out Herbal Line (or Life?) in IOI Mall. G swore, “It makes my skin sooooooooo much better,” he touched his face gently, “and it’s cheap!” I almost went in till I noticed the place did not have any brochure holder at all. Bare walls except for the company logo and a huge reception desk with another small table. I still have my cleanser & moisturizers..
