Half A Thousand Ringgit...Or Maybe More
I spent at least half a thousand ringgit just on shopping this week. That is ~RM500. I think hubby must be thinking that his wife has gone crazy.
I mean, I am someone quite prudent when it comes to shopping, especially shopping for myself. But I tell myself that I am in dire need of clothes. All my clothes before pregnancy are way too small, and my after-pregnancy clothes are way too frumpy, if there is such a word. I need clothes that fit me just right for my new body.
So how is my new body? I gained 2kg after giving birth to Shern. I don't think that 2kg is going anywhere. I have to learn to live with that extra 2kg of fats. My hips are bigger..ahem...curvier now and I think I've got bigger boobs, which I'm sure will shrink right away when I stop breastfeeding. And my tummy is no longer flat. I have got tummy bulges now. Sigh.
Anyway, like I said, I am in dire need of clothes which will make my new body feel great again...hiding those fats and bulges. *Grin
So what did I buy with half a thousand ringgit?
I bought myself 2 dress, 4 tops, 2 pants, 2 jeans and a pair of shoes. Not bad huh? 11 items for ~RM500. I got myself Voir, United Colors of Benetton, Vincci, British India, etc. Bargains everywhere!
I am feeling great even after spending half a thousand ringgit...or didn't I spent more?
Let's wait for next month's credit card bill.
