Kinda good deal

With few errands in hand, I headed off to the Mall to carry out my task. And what do you know?! I aimlessly passed by a local leather goods shop named Manels and sneaked a peek on the leather handbags they have on display.  Couldn’t take my eyes and hands off on one!  It’s a genuine leathered practical handbag/shoulder bag in one. But having qualms on buying because of the price tag!  Actually, it's only cheap. That's for the moneyed but sort of pricey for someone like me.  I’m fetish on genuine leather bags no doubt but I know, I gotta control my OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) too!  Again, I took the handbag off the rack, hung it on my shoulder, held it, walked with it..then returned to the rack again.  “Mmm…No way to buy it now!  Quite expensive for me”  I told the salesperson.  In my mind though, I’d definitely come back for it, by hook or by crook no matter what! Woot!...  But then, the salesperson informed me it’s on sale. The sale tag was just detached and was shown to me!  Printed on it is 50% OFF!  OMG!!  I could have jumped as high as the ceiling if I didn’t control myself!  Without thinking twice, I grabbed the bag, brought it to the cashier counter and pulled out my credit card. But alas! The cashier was apologetic that their omron machine is out of order. Whatttt?  Can’t make use of my credit card?? Dang!  Think.. think.. think.. then think again!  If I’d have to come back tomorrow, pretty sure, I’m not gonna see this handbag again! ..And my OCD is raging to the highest level!  The last thing I knew, I was squeezing my purse to the last drop, Who cares?! (Okay, with all due respect to the hubby,  he always understands anyway. Besides, this just fills up the missing Valentine gift. Right dear?! )  Happiness such as this comes only once in a blue moon for me so I might as well value the moment!! Cheers!

hahhaha...hirap talaga pag may OCD! wow! what a great deal...mahal nang manels...:)

Beng Gee said...

Sinabi mo pa Dhemz! Talaga hirap i-control ang pagiging OC. he he..
Hindi naman sya talaga mahal kung tulad mong mayaman ang bibili eh. Pero kasi, di din naman ganun ka chipipay pareho ng ibang local bags.

Hi Beng Gee, you certainly have very good taste, not to mention expensive too, ha ha.
But that sure one gorgeous bag!
And yes, I have not met any woman who doesn't go ga ga for bags and shoes. Include my wife. Never enough.

One time, bought a bag, she like you, went nuts over it, as well also on special offer....

Then less than 24 hours later happened to be at another mall.....right! You guessed it!
She fell in love with another one.

Oh well, I married her for better for worse, and have learned to say "thats very nice", as eating sardines, Instant noodles, maybe sleeping on the sofa for a week with a towel can be no fun, ha ha ha.

And me, my wallet already 5 years old, to my credit, only 3 pairs of shoes. VS my wife's?
I dare not count. Thats looking for trouble and sardine sandwiches, maybe solitary confinement too, ha ha.
Ingat ka palagi, Lee.
ps, how many bags you have, *wink*.

Beng Gee said...

Hi Lee! First of all, thank you for the kind words. Well, yeah I do admit I go gaga for nice handbags especially for genuine leather ones. I’m quite sure though, I won’t beat your wifey’s passion for collecting handbags as she, as you’ve mentioned before, has more than one cabinet full of shoes and bags. Gosh! I wish I could have as much! Maybe if my husband is as well-off as hers, I’ll also be like her buying all that fancy stuff! Lol!
You only have 3 pairs of shoes? I’m not surprised! Ha ha ha!.. The husband here has almost the same number. I hope you don’t mind huh?! The problem with you guys, like the husband here, is that you’re very impatient in shopping! Tell me if I’m wrong! Here, I do all the shopping for him except for his shoes only because he wants a perfect fit. So that leaves him with only few because of his impatience in shopping! I surmise, it’s same with you.
Nice to have you drop by and share some good thoughts. I hope you’re done with extreme coldness in that side of the globe. Terima kaseh for your precious time! Ingat!

Hi Beng Gee, believe it or not, I have patience. Hey...I love fishing, remember?
And my wife can't drive, so....yours truly has to take her to wherever, mostly shopping.
She shops, I look for a bench or coffee store, and I guess you already know my ahemmm, habits, ha ha ha.
Admiring SYTs.

And you're right, old shoes fits well....I only have one pair of leather shoes...patent leater, Spanish dancing shoes actually. Its 12 years old, looks new as hardly dance...use for weddings and funerals now, ha ha.
Have a nice day, Ingat ka palagi.
ps, wife buys her fancies with her money. I'm retired, my bank manager doesn't know my name, ha ha.

Beng Gee said...

Hello Lee! Ha ha.. my apology. I should have remembered, your wife is working a good job. She sure can afford all her fancy stuff and you being retired can rest very well, go fishing all day with your dependable retirement pay eh! Lol! And yes, I know you're very patient watching SYT's passing by. ha ha..

Glad you dropped by again Lee! See you on your site soon! Thanks much! Take care!
