Handbags Galore!

Knowing that Chinese New Year (CNY)  is just around the corner and having experienced the chaos that fills every single-supermarket-hypermarket-wet-market in our town, i asked my granddad/’akung’ to come to town and shop for the CNY necessities for our CNY family gathering. Truth is, we dont speak chinese although some say i look 100% chinese (hahahaha blame it on the eyes) yet our family celebrates CNY every year. This year would be slightly different as i would be bringing home Borneo Dude along (he’s a pure Dusun, so he has no knowledge of CNY other than the fact that you eat tons of oranges, get red money packets (angpow) and scarf lots of good delicious food). 

Ok back to what i was saying,… we went shopping at a local hypermarket and proceeded to town to hit a few  malls. It has been a while since i brought my ‘akung’ to town. I think he was having fun looking at all the stores and their bargains (hehehehehe… this time i didnt offer to buy anything cos i just sponsored a shopping spree of his a few months back)… while window shopping… we came upon a shop that is usally top priority for my mom and i to check out…

BONIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Some of you may think ‘huh?’ … Bonia is a leather boutique that sources the material from Italy and has it sewn locally’. I have been eyeing on a limited edition brown leather handbag with sewn flowers motifs on it. Unfortunately it was sold off… so i took the same-flower-but-coloured instead  brown leather handbag instead 🙂 hehehehe it’s suppose to be part of my hantaran teeheeeheeee…

here’s a few pics





now the price is mind-boggling… it’s half my monthly salary… and looking at the economic turmoil that everyone is talking about… some may think it is a waste but i’m trying to help out the economy… if we all stop buying…  then we’ll have to say goodbye to all our fav boutiques in a few months time…

And to my Borneo Dude, baby thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu 😀 my dream came true after all!
