The Art of Shopping

I was with some friends at dinner over the weekend and as always the subject of shopping came up. We all agreed that great bargains can be had if we know where to look and when. Why pay full price when you can have the same item for much less, eh? Every smart shopper knows that.

The other day, a friend was at a furniture fair looking for a king bed. The one she was eyeing came with a couch that she could have for below RM100. The fact of the matter is, Malaysia does have a surplus of furniture stores and discount furniture is everywhere. You just need the time to shop around.

  2. I buy my t-shirts at FOS or small boutiques which cost less than RM30...now I know I sound abit 'el-cheapo'...but I don't spend much on t-shirts actually..it's the rough wear and tear kind of attire for me.

  3. So much choice at all these discount stores, but... I still rate IKEA the best.

  5. MB, but my friend finally ended up not 'stealing' that though.

    MBL, I hear FOS has some pretty good clothes, esp their men's clothing - they are export market standards.

    LB, yeah, IKEA offers great retail therapy. From what I see, their cabinetry is as good as Electrolux's. (I'm an Electrolux fan.)
