The Sale

Everyone was telling me about the Robinsons Sale. Since I was in town for an event, I popped by at Raffles City Shopping Centre to have a look.

"What are you intending to get?" My friends asked.

"I don't know, I'll just browse around for baby stuff." Was my reply.

I was so wrong. Well...let me explain...EVERY SINGLE kids shop on the 3rd floor of the mall had items on sale. This being my 1st baby girl shopping foray, I went absolutely crazy. Fueled also by online links of drool-worthy baby clothes sent recently by well-meaning friends, I was picking up item after item of absolutely adorable teensy clothing.

In less than 2 hours, I ended up with more than S$300 worth of baby girls' stuff (and a pair of shoes and 3 CDs for me, but that's another point and another budget)!

Roboman came by as I was paying for my last purchases. His eyes grew really wide seeing the many bags I was carrying. I told him I'll give some away, since we have many friends expecting baby girls this year.

Upon reaching home, I couldn't help but still ooh and aah at my purchases. The thing is, even HE softened when he saw the little pretty clothes. These baby clothes designers have really done their job well!

lms: Oopsy...I guess so! Hopefully I will be wise and buy the right stuff.
