  • Metrojaya Warehouse Sales 23-27/10/08


    I wasn't keen on this warehouse sales which is held at Shah Alam (so far-lah) until Dee (a shopaholic like me) sms "THERE'S STILA AT THE WAREHOUSE SALES!". She got me at STILA and that night I regretted that I didn't go on the opening day 23/10/08. It's impossible anyway to go on a working day! I can't be taking leave to just go warehouse sales. So the next day, my colleague and I decided to go right after work 5pm from TTDI to Shah Alam. BAD! Friday night's JAM was so bad (7pm I left the stadium), the traffic was crawling bumper to bumper at Shah Alam (from Stadium) to Federal Highway. I didn't bring my camera as I was worried it will be snatch from me due to the large crowd, BUT I went again on SATURDAY MORNING and manage to get a fews pictures to show :)

    stalls outside with sales people trying to cash in
    on the crowd Metrojaya warehouse sales is pulling.
    There's Proton, ice-cream, food stalls,etc on sale!

    I only had an hour to shop on Friday night as my next appointment is at 8pm. On my shopping list is STILA (first priority) and then helping Dee & Tubby get their perfumes & cosmetic. They called & sms me what they wanted. It was hard trying to shop in that pack sardine stadium. I had to wait 30mins in line just to get into the Perfume & Cosmetic area. When I finally got in, I had to bumper-to-bumper with other shoppers to see what's on sale. The perfumes weren't my taste. A lot of brands from the Corus Hotel warehouse sales and a few good ones like Issey Miyake, 212, I heard there's CK but I didn't see any. The sought after branded perfumes were gone fast as the quantity offered weren't enough to supply a whole stadium of shoppers. From the price list, one can gauge what's left and what's the price at stake :)

    See the nightmare crowd?

    The pics were taken when I was Q-ing up to go into the fragrance & cosmetic area. I even turn behind to take a pic of how big and long the Q is. On Saturday morning worst. There's a 3 Tier Entrance Q into the stadium, and a huge Q into the Fragrance&Cosmetic area. I waited 40mins just to get in again to help Widuri, Tubby, Catherine & my boss buy some items. My boss actually went with me but when she saw the 3 Tier Q into the stadium & was even apprehended for trying to go in via the KELUAR/OUT way, she told me it's just not worth it to shop in a sardine sales and went home. Luckily my brother was already inside & he sent me back home to TTDI :D

    As soon as I got home, I snapped pics of my buys! well my pc is being repaired so only today (Sunday) I could blog about this. SO WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY get ready for some eye candy girls!

    Saturday was the LAST DAY FOR COSMETIC & FRAGRANCE COUNTER. So some brands did a further reduction on their items like JPG Summer Male, Female sold for rm80 (selling like hot cakes) Kenzo Leaf rm40 only for 100ml! Cosmetics also further reduction! but neh.. I already bought so much the day before. I can say this was really worth it! (stila) and the perfumes although not my taste, I say they're extremely WORTH IT! I don't see many 100ml perfumes being sold for around rm100 more or less! and these perfumes are not OLD perfumes! some are as new as 2008 release! Loreal's warehouse perfume price is the most expensive i think! small small already near rm100. In this metrojaya, big ones are going for that kinda price! worth the crowd! hempit pun tak apa.

    That's it. No more shopping until Year 2009.
