Relativity

The woes of J the middle class citizen.....

I have finally checked out the new Gardens (@ Midvalley) and Pavillion (@ KL Bukit Bintang area) shopping centres.

What is my take-away from my 2 visits?:
NOW I FINALLY REALISE HOW POOR I REALLY AM.

Haha....
It's crazy how relative everything is though. For example, I suppose to someone who earns millions every year, the same RM1,500 white shirt that I saw may be considered cheap.

Gosh, my heart almost jumped right out of my chest when I read the price tag! I then made a very quick exit from that shop area, trying my best to look nonchalant.... but I don't think I was cool enough to fool the sales assistant....
(Probably she was thinking: "Pffft... Cannot afford then don't look lah!")

Still, it was nice just wandering around, enjoying the airy and sophisticated interiors of the 2 new malls....
(I did get kinda bored after about half an hour though - it's no fun if you know you can't really afford anything)

Oh well... at least there are lots of new food places to check out!
:)


Signing off,
J

Ya loh - that place is only for window shopping...
... or actually: I don't even dare window shop there because I know 100% sure that I cannot afford it....
Haha...

It's cheaper to shop in Sg or Oz.. even with our lousy currency forex. :(

to jemima:
I guess the tax on luxury/ lifestyle products in Msia is higher?... Or maybe we just get paid waaaaaaay too little because we are still a third world country.
*sigh*
Oh well.
It's not like any of us really need an LV bag to survive anyway.

to meiyen:
Yeah!
That sounds like a lot more fun (and delicious too)!
