New Shoes For Me, New Bags For You

Nowadays I never do much shopping except for groceries... shopping in this sense means buying something "vain" for myself... hahahaa... I was thinking that since I am going to retire in another six months time, I do not need working clothes anymore.  My cupboard is full of them and it is such a waste to buy some more and hang them there.  If I am not careful, the metal bar in the cupboard will go "sengat" and fall due to overloading...
 
 I was sitting here waiting for my friend who was trying some sports shoes....
Nothing here interest me actually.....
But when it comes to shoes, I just couldn't resist buying one pair...
(Well, at least my shoe cupboard still has space!)

Since I am on shopping subject, here are two new bags given by my colleague...
 



She bought these two bags from Beijing...
New ones ... never been used before...
But she gave them to me when she found out that they are made from "pig skin"
It is such a waste if I just chuck them away in my store room...
If anyone like these, please let me know...

  5. Hello darling! I'm still awake.. Oh yeah I know wat u mean.. Too many clothes hanging there can make that metal bar drop anytime.. My wardrobe is not built in, so it can get kinda shaky too sometimes.. Those nice expensive bags could make a nice Christmas exchange gift if you do not have anyone to give to..

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
