Beggers Cannot Be Choosers:Jakarta:Piombo Saffiano Metal Prada Wallet

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Wednesday, December 31, 2008 at 3:21 PM


Unless you were born as a millionaire where money flows like the Danube, you could not care less about what to buy because most of the times, you will pursue for something extravagantly expensive and new of the rack but for a bargain hunter, most of the times, we are living by the saying of "beggers cannot be choosers". We want the best from everything that we spent and same as me, I would love to purchase the perfect item that includes the respective label, interesting design, reasonable pricing and good condition like this piombo saffiano metal Prada wallet that I bought for a 40% less from Plaza Indonesia, Jakarta . For a careful spender like me, I do think this is a successful buy because at least it is a Made-in-Italy-only-last-season-interesting-colour-good-condition-discounted Prada. I personally think bargain hunting is suitable for those who are afraid to spend because at least you will not ended up just talking, dreaming and hoping for the best purchasing without buying some!

Jakarta Oh Jakarta!

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Monday, December 29, 2008 at 10:47 PM

I have a new profound respect for Jakarta, at least for their diversity of shopping places which suited with my bargain hunting-ness, from their warehouses to big discounted on big labels. Because the purchasing power is much greater there, there are like 10 KL's Pavilions in the city alone! I got the chance to visit the city during the year end holiday which paralleled with their year end sale for 5 days which was fabulous. The trip was strictly for malls hopping only and it was extensive but successfully accomplished. The city itself is not so bad at all and it is just the matter of the gap between the rich and poor is too big but very crowded too. It is as big as 3 KL combined together and with population over 8 million, it is the 12th largest city in the world.

Many thanks to the family of Abang H and Kak E for their generosity to let us stayed there and their hospitality while we were there. I will share my shopping experiences for the next new postings. Enjoy!

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Wednesday, December 3, 2008 at 10:12 PM















You know the annual year end sale has already kickstarted when all these major labels are having their own clearance sale.

For a 30% discount, I know it is not really chic and cheap but for a Gucci, it still considered as a good buy!

Twilight

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Saturday, November 29, 2008 at 1:21 PM



I got the chance to catch the much anticipated "Twilight", another teen novel turns movie yesterday at The Pavilion. I dont really like to go to the cinema nowadays because I will be so restless doing nothing for 2-3 hours inside but the whole vampire and mortal's romance has always fascinated me. I was just too lazy to read the novel so I decided to watch the movie. Generally, it was good, very teenager-ish storyline. Pattison quirky handsome was the ultimate choice for Edward and Stewart's tomboyish beauty suits Bella very well. There were some memorable scenes like the inroduction of the Cullen siblings at the cafeteria by Bella's friend (girls just screamed like crazy when Edward steps in, right in the cinema!) and from the downside, I think the story went too fast just because "Twilight " is the first book from the saga so they tend to finsh up the whole book in one movie. It should be more on how Bella discovered Edward is a vampire, how they fall in love etc for the debut And sometimes the script was too cheesy and that "diamond" scene if you know what I mean, was a bit awkward. But overall it was an awesome show,definitely will buy the dvd!
