I was away down in Singapore, taking a look at the Great Singapore Sale. That explains my silence the last couple of days.
I was quite surprised that this round, I hardly found anything to buy. Clothes wise, I realised that although the variety in Singapore was more, the prices too were higher, even after the discounts. In fact, I would go so far as to say that I could probably find something similar here in Kuala Lumpur at the same price in RM which would mean a saving of 2.2 times! Instant discount.
However, a caveat is that branded goods there are awesome, if you like the stuff. Gucci was on sale up to 70% – yep you saw that right. It was only their floral line from a couple of years back, but if you aren’t fussy, hey! That’s a hefty saving! I’ve never seen Gucci go on sale for 70% discount here. And they had a special 1 week discount of 30% off on selected pieces of the travel collection that usually never go on sale. I was surprised.
But I ended up with nothing in the end. Surprised? I am too. I was so surprised when I unpacked my bag last night and found no new purchases to croon over. It was rather anti-climatic after everything.
Oh well, time to hit the Malaysian Mega Sale I guess… 🙂

Shucks. I hate the feeling of coming home with nothing. Macam wasted my trip :p
Same here. I visit Spore quite often eversince bf got transferred temporarily. First round during sales, I only came back with a pair of nice looking knee length jean skirt from Zara. That also not on sale and was coz I liked it so much. Other than that, I came back with nothing but still wondered where my money went. Food I think. But like you said, branded goods sales there are definitely better there.
Damn potong stim. I see myself wanting to buy more stuff back here during the MMS than GSS.
PB says: Yeah! I can’t believe I’d rather shop here! But with the RM and all its probably for the best.
