Brand Loyalist

25 Oct

I am a brand loyalist I must say. If I buy a product of a particular brand and like it, I will continue to buy it as long as I have a need and use for it. Like my handbags for example. It has to be Salvatore Ferragamo. Different sizes and shapes for different occasions, all my handbags–save for one Furla–and two pairs of shoes are Ferragamo. Brand loyalist. Let’s not even go into the other stuff… 

Recently the loyalty in me acquired yet another Thermos to my collection! There’s already five flasks (six if M1’s unit is also counted) of different sizes and there I was purchasing another. 

It could have been a simple thing but I suddenly needed my coffee to be always hot. So a sipper lid was required. But I didn’t fancy having to use my flask every morning for my coffee because the flip-top is too tedious to flip plus the flask does not have a handle like a mug. And frankly with this criteria, there are not many choices out there, that’s why I ended up with yet another Thermos product.

The purchase was a mug, the ThermoCafe serving this different need. And I love it.



It’s Not Over Yet

2 May

Shopping was nyeh. There’s nothing to buy or should I say, nothing caught my fancy: the branded fakes are not my cup of tea (remember I am a brand loyalist to Salvatore Ferragamo?) nor the batiks and local handicraft. In the end, we bought some chips, peanuts, Carlsberg and Bintang beer and sat in a corner of A&W to will the time away in the mall right opposite our hotel.

The holiday is not over yet because we have another game tomorrow! And the big debate was what should we eat for dinner tonight. I think I will find out when the transport comes at 6.30pm.

Am I a Brand Loyalist?

18 Mar

It was a typical Sunday and I was heading out from the house. As I stretched my legs out to my comfortable pair of Rockport sandals, I realized I have three other pairs of the same brand, different models of slippers and sandals of course. It suddenly made it wonder if I was a brand loyalist.

Like recently, I had to throw away my worn out Reebok gym shoes and got myself another pair of Reebok. Then there was the unfortunate incident last year where my Footjoy golf shoes were stolen. Initially I bought another brand, Head but found it not as comfortable and ended up buying another Footjoy. Now come to think of it, all my golf gloves are of one particular brand and model – Wilson Staff Premium Microfiber Comfort Gel Grip Palm. Nothing else.

What about my handbags? Hmm… Most of them are Salvatore Ferragamo, even my wallet and my spare wallet! My other handbags are Jim Thompson… Brand loyalist? Or comfort creature? Either way, I would be loved for my brand loyalty, no doubt!
