Online Shopping

12 Sep

As you know, I am not an avid shopper. Put me in a mall for hours, I would be drained of energy and feeling super lethargic. I simply cannot stand the noisy crowd, the screaming kids and the lack of oxygen in an enclosed environment.

However, sometimes a trip to the mall is necessary but only to buy and do the necessary. No window-shopping excursions in other words and I avoid those mega-sales extravaganzas like a plague.

Recently, this dinosaur discovered the joys of online shopping! No crowds, no kids, no lack of oxygen and at the comfort of my space, it’s kinda nice. And thrilling to a certain extent when I am able to find something that I like and need.

It’s not amazon.com that I am talking about but a local portal, lazada.com.my. It’s truly mind boggling what one can find on there; a true definition of a one-stop for all your needs.

But I am selective. Most purchases are things at a great bargain and useful like a bean bag and golf club covers or even useless, like the fidget spinner which I still don’t get it until now.

My most recent purchase, a set of carving tools to complement my existing set, will definitely be a useful one to grow my Gigglesville township.

I look forward to the package arriving.


I Don’t Get It

22 May

There’s this new gadget in the market touted as a stress-relieving toy and apparently it appeals to the young ones.

I purposely purchased one to see what the fuss is all about. And when my toy came, I was excited initially. But when I ripped open the box and held the gadget in my hand, I didn’t quite know what to do with it. Obviously I am not so young anymore when I don’t get it, true to what CNN reported recently that adults don’t get it.

If I am supposed to do some balancing or gravity-defying tricks besides just twirling it, I’m not sure I would want to. Then again, either I learn some new tricks or be frustrated and end up being more stressed than relieved with it!
