I was awaken in the morning by another blogger who was in town. "Can you use What's App?..." he texted me. We communicated and we had a late lunch. Rather, he had a high tea, which I shared a bit. I had to go for a Deepavali lunch which I had committed to earlier too. So I watched while he ate. Well, at least he ate well and it was worth the money paid for.
We walked towards Uniqlo. It was really packed. There was a long queue. We decided to go to Pavilion. Walked passed Paul Frank. There was a 50% store wide sale. I was pleasantly surprised. I asked the server and he said that it was indeed a store wide sale. There was not much choice left. We bought two t-shirts each. The we walked towards Quicksilver. The fellow blogger then had to leave. I browsed around and bought two pair of shorts and a knapsack. All for 50% off.
I went back to my car. A Porsche pulled up with a four wheel drive towing behind. Then people with wired headphones were seen securing the area. It was a family. I did not recognize them. The lady at the wheel was last to alight. She was still waiting for the valet to pick her car up. I
Since the parking was flat rate, I decided to do something stupid. I walked over and queued to enter Uniqlo. The queue was like at least 450 meters long. The crowd was orderly and some cameras were focused on the queue itself. Some people actually find it hilarious and decided to snap their hearts out. I was a little embarased with the attention. After about 20 minutes, we were allowed to enter.
There were some good bargains. The quality is average. Since the price was reasonable, there was nothing to complain about. The queue to the changing room took as long as the queue to come in. Bought some clothes, jeans on sale, shorts and a fleeced warm top.
I walked back to Pavilion. There was a fashion show going on. The who's who must be there. The crew were trying their best to drape the curtain so that no one else can see the catwalk. The organizers might as well hold the function at a private venue if they wanted it to be so exclusive. No need to be so cheapskate to hold it at a public area and deny the public their right to move freely at the concourse.
I picked up my car, went home. Warmed up and ate some left over food in the refrigerator. Washed my clothes.
Started writing this post. Then an idiot from the condo called asking for help to unlock his clamped car. As usual, they will give all kind of excuses. Told him I cannot do nothing much. It was just his tough luck. Pay up buddy if you want it opened. I know he is going to curse me for this.
Now that this post is done, I need to go and hang my clothes out.
Happy Deepavali to my Hindu readers.
