Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Personal Shopper Miu 2 the Rescue!

2.19.2009

waitin at 9.50am

I took taxi 9am to Menara Weld @ Metrojaya Warehouse Sales again and waited for their entrance to open at 10am. I had so many orders that I can't keep track of it @_@ well what I did was grab first check later. My orders were in my head, smsese, & phone calls. A few girls asked me specifically to look out for Burberry London which was out yesterday evening (2nd day of sale). When I went in, I scanned the first few tables for brands. Hugo boss is still selling, CK no more at all. In fact CK's table has been replaced with Guerlain & Stila cosmetics. Most perfume were gone and the size of the place cut down. Burberry had plenty of The Beat (their latest fragrance costing rm300 over in retail) and there it was Burberry London. I use both hands to grab the perfumes as I go fearing it will be out of stock if I don't. Time is precious and as a warehouse sale shopper I knew every minute count. I grab the last Stila acapulco, the last Kenzo Armour body lotion, the last Marc Jacob's Blush lotion but was 5minutes late from grabbing Bvlgary lotion (darn). The sales people started talking about me. They ask if I'm opening a shop/borong and I just smile.

luggin 3 bags around KL is crazy!

Would they know what is a personal shopper?

Checking sms took most of my time as I didn't want to miss out my orders. My final rounds were to scout for male perfumes under rm100. My buyers wants to get it as gifts for their hubby/bf/friend. Lugging a basket & plastic bag full of perfume with one hand carrying 5 perfume set. I stopped to think if i missed out any body's order. It's too late my hands are full, and I doubt I could pay for everything!


At the cashier, they look with astonished eyes as I set everything down. True enough, my credit cards were maxed out just for this sale. I had to use 2 credit cards! They probably think I'm crazy. I dare not say how much I spent here, my bf is reading my blog. He will kill me. If I do get killed, kindly bury me with all the perfumes.

Amazing enough you would think I spent a whole day there buying all this? No it was just an hour and I pop into McDonalds for a drink. I still had to work, I had time my work to be done in KL so I could hop over (or in other words curi tulang) and get this done in an hour, skip my lunch and do my work in KL. Lugging 3 heavy bags around KL is crazy. It was so hot and I had to walk to Wilayah Land Office, DBKL & post office to get my work done.

just found out if u walk all the way behind Menara Weld
you will reach KLCC! in like 30mins

Unfortunately it was nearing lunch time, I can see the crowd coming into Menara Weld & the road were so jam no taxi wanted to take me. Rushing for time, I try to walk back to Masjid Jamek area remembering the taxi route but took the route behind Menara Weld instead & ended up somewhere near Shangrila Hotel. I look at the road signs for familiar landmarks. Alas I saw KLCC! (good because I needed to get to post office & then I can take LRT to Masjid Jamed & walk to Wilayah Land Office & DBKL).

Resting at Wilayah Land Office waiting to extract document from them. I was here until 3pm & then I walked to Burger King @ Masjid Jamek. Along the way I saw some nice graffiti on the back alleys.

While at Burgey King, Hurley called me up and offered to fetch me back to my office *how sweet of him*. He knew I was walking around KL lugging shopping bags & was having a late lunch. Thanks Hurley!!! ^_^ appreciate the rescue!

Before I go off to sleep, I want to tell all Stila fans out there that there is this magazine call Steady in Kinokuniya Japanese Section featuring Stila in it. It comes with a free Stila pouch big enough to fit 2 x 500ml mineral bottle water & cute Stila stickers to mark your calendars. It cost rm34++ to buy this magazine but it is worth it for me! Good Night girls I'll only post the perfume pic individualy tomorrow.

XOXO
Miu
