It's been a hectic weekend, especially for shopaholics like me, because thanks to #MalaysiaClothesBuffet, we have THREE FULL DAYS of non-stop shopping thrills happening at Syopz, Taylor's Lakeside Campus!!!!
Read on to get the lowdown - the turnout, the people, and most importantly....
First thing I did (as always!) is to snap a photo at the photo wall for memory keepsake! They decorated the wall with actual clothes and brown paper bags, to reflect the true shopaholic spirit! We were even given props to play with!
Complimentary polaroids for you to bring home! These are the long (more expensive) rectangular ones!
As I signed up for the blogger pass, I was told to wait for about 40 mins before I can join the next available slot, which was 1.00pm. So I went to visit the AUSSINO SALE to check out the bedspreads, pillow cases, bolster cases and what-nots...
AUSSINO was having a whopping 80% sale and check out the UNBELIEVABLE PRICING!!! Mind you, these are all high quality pieces with HIGH THEAD COUNT (500!!!!!). Erm, if you don't know what thread count is, well, simply put - the higher the thread count is, the more expensive (and higher quality) the bedspread is. Think FIVE STAR HOTEL room quality. Normal bedroom uses about 100+ thread count.
Covers which comes in every shade imaginable!
Most of the cute bedsheets come in a set with matching pillow and bolster cases! Unfortunately, most of them are in King & Queen Size Bed *sad*
My room has two Single Beds therefore I only had choices of plain colour sheets like the ones shown above. I even managed to bump into some of the designs of their Facebook page and I must say they are definitely better in real life!
Not long after came the bff Olivia Shyan (who only remembered the event the morning itself, bravo!) and then we began our clothes hunting! I went for the 1.00pm one so I had a glimpse of clothes before she did, so I was standing behind the barrier line, talking to her loudly like Ah Mah lolololol.
Here she is for the 1.20pm slot!
We were each given a transparent ziplock bag measuring 9" X 4" worth RM60 each. Our target was to fill in as many clothes while trying not to burst the bag after securing it by the end of the session. Each session lasts only 15 mins. We had a huge LCD clock for countdown of the time!
Before jumping in line, we had the opportunity to browse through some of the better clothes, so that we know what to look for within that 15 minutes time frame!
There was a line of 8 bargain bins filled with clothes, clothes, CLOTHES! I say its a good move to separate the clothes so that the girls have ample space and enough room to open up each piece and not hit into each other! (You know how crazy mad warehouse sales can be!)
So we all had to line up and here the emcee go yadayada on the mic before entering the shopping area. There are two barricades set up to separate the anxious shoppers and onlookers.
Once the emcee yelled "Get.... Set... GOOO!" I saw some crazed shoppers literally RAN INTO THE SHOPPING AREA! zomglol.
And here is Aunty Oli going through the clothes along with other crazed shopper girls! Hehs.
Did you spot a Katy Perry mermaid? I certainly did! :D
There was also a BLOWOUT SALE which took place between 4-6pm which each piece was going for the rate of RM10 EACH!
So after the tiring frantic shopping session, it was time to chill and have lunch so Oli & I walked to a Japanese restaurant downstairs and catch up with some girl talk session!
SUPER HAPPY WITH OUR PURCHASES LOR!
So this is my plastic bag, upclose. Try guessing how many pieces I managed to stuff inside?
The Clothes Buffet staff thought I was gonna burst the bag but I proved them wrong by staying calm and zipping the bag slowly (under one minute)!
These are all the clothes laid out flat when I got home!
I had a TOTAL of
NINE / SEMBILAN / 九 / ௯
2 dresses, 3 shorts, 1 skirt, 2 tank tops and 1 long pantsssss!
I love them all because they all FIT ME NICELY!!!
I shall update you guys on tips how to achieve this in the next sale event!
Thank you so much A Shopaholics Den & LiNS Comm for organizing such a terrific shopping event! I can safely say that this is the
BEST SALE EVENT ever held in Malaysia!
For now, save up your extra cash and see you guys in the next Clothes Buffet!
