Trip to Italy-the retail therapy

oh God. the shopping was fantastic, what wasn’t was the limited time allocated for shopping >.< not too impressed by how our tour guide arranged the day to day itinerary as it didn’t allow us much time on our own. so recently in april me, mom, aunty flo and uncle sam went for a trip to italy. we covered a few cities.. hmm if laziness or procrastination wears off i might blog about the trip. but this post is about the stuff i bought!

i think I’m gonna be eating porridge for a few months. but maybe not because mr awesome is feeding me ๐Ÿ˜‰

our haul from Venice, where we had 2 hours to shop so we only managed to pop by Chanel and MiuMiuImage

Visiting the Sistine Chapel today, I am so excited. Been looking forward to this since….my previous trip to Rome about 7 years ago? I hope Michelangelo wouldn’t disappoint me ๐Ÿ˜‰ oh yeah then there will be some shopping time (I hope) at via condotti near the Spanish steps.. ๐Ÿ˜› so we will see.. Fingers crossed I’ll get my stuff and that it will not be out of stock.

Saying hi from Venice! Currently already in Rome tho.n my non exhaustive shopping list is faaaarrr from done! Missing my baby so much. Can’t wait to be back (still gotta get the list done ๐Ÿ˜‰

Runaway flyaway

Spent the weekend away from home with these wonderful people who’ve known me for ages, friends who have been with me through college, uni, a few relationships, Europe trips..

20111024-225458.jpg

Met Ck!to think that he used to live 2 floors above me back in Ukraine.he had a habit of going downstairs to the kiosk to buy a carton of milk every night and on the way up he usually pops by my room..sometimes we checkout pretty girls on friendster-that’s me layaning him, sometimes we watch horror movies, because I’ll never watch a horror movie on my own >.< and sometimes we just gossip about whatever happened in class..we went grocery shopping together when I was living alone, and always ate out because he's such a foodie, always craving for something fancy. I'm missing my favourite fish pasta from topor restaurant as I type :/ he's a friend I'm perfectly comfortable with, a friend who has seen me at my worst and yet didn't hasn’t runaway

And as usual Jing,vv and Cheryl were there to welcome me, there to stand by me when I needed them, they know all my weaknesses and despite that still love me. I stayed a night with my cousin, and she brought me to see a wise elderly lady who told me alot about myself and my life.

A weekend away did me me a lot of good.I felt liberated, and realized that being alone is not so scary after all. I value my independence, and I know someday I’ll be able to embrace the freedom that I’m given.. even though it happened at a time I least expected. But that’s how life is, not everything will turn out as you expected, not everyone will stay with you till the end, and adversities come as they please without warning. The only thing within our control are the choices that we make.

I choose to be happy.

And to cherish the people who didn’t leave when I needed them most.

Though miles may lie between us we are never far apart, for friendship don’t count miles it is measured by the heart

Balik kampung!

We are currently on the way back to johor ,that’s our hometown and the extended families are there including grandma too.so for the next few days I’ll be a small town girl, in rengam. My friends always joked bout that.haha it’s hilarious one day I should pack them along with me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Chanel petit cambon tote

before going on the trip to Spain, i was searching around online drooling looking at things i wanted to get. So i wasย eyingย the Wilshire MM , the one in Rouge Fauviste especially..the beautiful eye catching raspberry red color. Or the Alma BB. As expected the Alma BB is sold out at the Louis Vuitton store in Barcelona but sadly even the Wilshire was only available in Gris art deco, a silvery grey colour which i didn’t like, it was too dull for me. So they didn’t have everything on our list : the Eva, Wilshire MM, Alma BB.. and nothing else caught my eye. only managed to get the Neverfull pm in Damier for Anngie. So we walked down the street..and walked past Chanel.

It was a really small shop, very few ready to wear pieces on sale, a rack of sunglasses and some handbags. i asked the friendly sales associate (SA) for Petit shopping tote (PST) and it was out of stock. I asked to see the Grande shopping tote (GST) and my mom and aunt thought it looked too big and bulky on me. then the SA brought out a very cute little thing which i fell in love with instantly. It was the petit Cambon tote. Made of lambskin..with the patents CC sewn in front..it was the perfect size. so cute, and when i took a peek inside it was a really sweet surprise for me because it’s neon pink!! fell in love (again!) and decided to buy it. after waiting a while, she came out from the storeroom and handed me a black paperbag with ribbons at the handles and a white camelia flower on it. so pretty ๐Ÿ™‚

gonna do a reveal, because im very excited and so happy!

forgot to take a pic before i untied the ribbons

the big black box with the ribbons and another flower

are you getting excited yet =P

my new baby in lambskin so soft and supple

she neatly folded the dustbag at the side

the neon pink interior <3<3<3

it has 2 zipped pockets, 2 pen slots and the keyring holder

i bought sunglasses too ๐Ÿ˜‰ will do a reveal soon

the Alhambra, Granada

this is one of my fav pics of the entire trip, i loved the long corridor with so many arches..giving a peek of the beautiful view of Alhambra kingdom spread out in the distance. truly breathtaking. would love to steal a kiss with my spacesuitman* there someday.

*new petname for the one and only man in my life (daddy not counted)

Ola espana!

hi!
blogging from hotel novotel in barcelona..quite a nice place big bonus is the free wifi even in the rooms! but the time difference made it impossible to chat with falah. anyhow saw the sights of barcelona yesterday, very nice city but we were heavily warned about the pickpockets. luckily nothing happened yesterday. saw a few of gaudi’s work. really interesting..and unusual. then the afternoon was left for shopping. mom and i bought a chanel each, aunt hilda and aunt florence got an LV each.. and all of us got some longchamp. managed to get anngie’s LV neverfull..more on the shopping story in another post.that’s quite a drama on its own -__-

i miss falah so much when im walking around.. wonder when we’ll be able to come back here together? weather is okay, quite chilly but very nice with the sunshine. spain could really be the place i fall in love with. it’s beautiful, from what i’ve seen so far.

off to valencia today, and paella!

many hugs n kisses for falah *__*
