MegaSales ??

I had this thought in my mind to buy certain stuffs earlier on in the morning prior to going to church. But who knows after the church service, I only remembered wanting to buy something from the bookstore but can't recall what issit about.. Hahhaha... cham, failing memories.. But normally I won't force myself to recall , cos most of the time this won't work. Just let it be, and the idea will pop up automatically by itself later on.. If I force myself to recall what is it about, most of the time I won't be able to recall and at the end I will get frustrated. And my hypothesis was proven to be correct, in less than half an hour time, I remembered what I wanted to buy :)

One interesting thing I noticed was ... Unker Ho's DVDs were on sales too during this megasales shopping carnival. Surprised? 3 DVD-9 for RM 10. (Wow, that's cheap). I didn't buy any cos I came here for other things. Normally I won't deviate to buy things that I didn't plan to buy earlier on. Another interesting thing that I noticed was while having late lunch (around 2 pm) at McD (located next to the DVD outlets), I noticed all the DVD shopkeepers closing their outlets in split of seconds. Wow... I guess they received "news" that officers are coming to raid their places soon :) In less than one minute, all the dvd outlets were closed. Indeed very efficient :D

Another interesting stuff that I noticed when I passed by Popular bookstore was the long queues at the cashier counters. First time I saw such a long queue inside Popular bookstore. No wonder lah.. they were having Closure & Shifting Out Sales.. The books were sold at dirt cheap prices. with discount from 10% to 90%. That's why.. No wonder. Looking at the long queues, mmmm.... I decided not to join in the crowds. Somehow, I dislike going to crowded places. Dunnolah, I felt suffocated in places with huge crowds. Blame it on lack of oxygen :D

I get all the other stuffs that I wanted. Well, most of the stuffs I bought today were not actually on sales. And now..... I'm few hundred bucks poorer :(

plink,
The chup-chup spirit :)

Some of the things they purposely marked up the price and then put the tag cheap sales up to xxx%.. cheating huh? :P

Some of the books only are sold off at 90% discount. The newer books are sold at 10 to 30% discount. But still it is cheaper :) Only at this particular outlet which is going to close down soon :D

Wah.. if ipod and McBook offer up to 90% discount.. LOL.. I guess that will only happen in our dreams :P

day-dreamer said...

I always feel pretty bad after spending $$ during shopping... because after all, that $$ is not mine.

O_O

Chen said...

day dreamer,
Good to know that u have the feel bad feelings, and u won't simply spend the $$$, not like those who swing their parents' money like nobody business or those who take things for granted :)

I know what you mean about crowds Chen. The biggest shopping day in the USA is the day after Thanksgiving. It is the official first day of Christmas shopping and most people have the day off. The crowds are horrible.

I was buying stuff at large electronics/home entertainment store and you could hardly move because of the crowd. It stressed me so bad that I almost did not make it through the que. When I went home I could not get out of bed except to go to the loo for the rest of that day or the next.

I don't go shopping on that day anymore.

slurp! said...

i buy only what i need nowadays ... so that i can avoid the crowd

Chen said...

SA,
what an experience :)

I scared to go to shopping malls or places with huge crowds too. That's why I never go during the first few days of carnival mega sales to avoid the crowds :D

Suffocating ;)

slurps,
I agree with you. Buy what we need and don't "overspend" unnecessarily :)
