Ways of preventing Shopping-like-hell:
1. Make yourself busy while waiting for the bus.
-Planning to take day rider to go to the city centre.
-Called my sister while waiting for bus.
-Still calling when the bus came. I accidentally said 'Asda return please' instead of 'Day rider please'.
My reaction: Budu! Should take day rider.Why laa asked for asda return. Ah!Let it be.
Bad news: Couldn't go city centre. Have to buy another ticket if I want to.
Good news: The ticket fare is cheap. Preventing me from shopping like hell in the city centre.
2. Go shopping as early as 6/7 in the morning.
-FYI, I went out at about 7 a.m. which is quite early for God sake.
-Why so early?Coz I thought I can avoid the hassle outside so I can shopping peacefully.
-Guess what?The shops still closed!
-Asda is the only shop that opened.
My reaction: Gila! Forgot to estimate the time. Went dissapointedly to Asda.
Good news: The money's life is safe.
3. Put a big-fierce-hideous dog beside the ATM machine.
-There's only a few pounds left in my purse. To the ATM machine I should go.
-Suddenly numb. Why? Coz there's a huge-fierce-hideous dog beside the ATM machine.
-Actually I could use debit card instead of cash.But I just don't like using it.
My reaction: Duh! Like I care. Emm..actually I do care. Sia-sia mati kena gigit hanjeng tau.
Good news: The amount of money in the bank account is not changing.
4. Let the shopkeeper quarrels with her/his friend.
-I went into charity shop..searching for books and cute stuff.
-Then I quickly went out.Why?
-Because the shopkeeper was in the middle of a tight quarrel with his friend.
-I was the only one in the shop.So..better get myself out from them.
My reaction: a bit nervous.and dissapointed as well.coz I bought nothing!
Good news: Nothing is something. Something means my money is not decreasing.
I ONLY bought food from Asda:Saving You Money Everyday.
Maka terpaksalaa mmbaca niat: sahaja aku puasa shopping pd hari ini kerana byk halangan.Amin.
