When I was in Brussels, I went all the way to the border to Netherlands.
Something like Bicester Village in Oxford.
The collection is obviously not the latest ones. They sell last season’s collection for such a good price! And you’ll be surprised to find a lot of nice stuff in outlet shopping places. (If you can be bothered to drive because they’re usually out of the city). A little bird told me Malaysia is planning to do a designer outlet too! Not sure when, but it’s in the pipeline. About time, don’t you think?
It was cold and it was raining, not good weather when I went. It was hard to even move my fingers. But still, there were a lot of people! We’d endure rain and storm for a good Gucci bag, wouldn’t we? :s
Managed to get a table at McDonalds and ate some yummy artery-clotting food. Hot fries in the cold… Fries never tasted so good. And I wonder why I put on so much weight everytime winter comes!
All our stuff combined:
Stuff I bought:
A decent Polo shirt: everybody needs shirts!!
A big bag: I LOVEEEE the squishy soft leather and I love how big and practical it is. Great for my travels to dump stuff in.
A baseball cap: In case I ever find myself in a stadium…you never know ok?! Always have to be prepared.
Had a great time walking around and shopping. But you know what? I thought this day would never come, but I actually am all shopped out.
I really really really miss my office 🙁 Was supposed to go back by now, but had to postpone because need to settle some stuff here.
I miss having a purpose! I miss coming into the office in the morning, greeting my awesome colleagues, management meetings, handling projects, stealing food from the pantry and just doing whatever I have to do that day. I keep myself updated from here, monitoring emails, BBM-ing colleagues and stuff. But it’s really not the same!! I know things will carry on regardless whether I’m there or not, but it’s nice to be a part of it and contribute.
It’s so weird…I used to think a life of just breakfast, lunch, shopping, dinner, movie (basically easy life) is the ideal kind of life. But it’s not! At least not for me anyway.
Note to self: No more long holidays for a while!
