A Kinokuniya book haul

It was an impulse purchase.

There was this unexplained urge to head on to the Kinokuniya website and go crazy on book shopping. Perhaps it was partially motivated by the fact that I lost my Popular membership card. And my Watson card. I ended up paying for the Kinokuniya Privilege Card as well at Rm38/annum. I honestly feel it is worth the money. I get another 10% discount on top of the online price.

This time I am less greedy. I was realistic and bought only 4 books. My choices are very business-like this time. I bought one fiction thriller to ease the intense reading materials. Ok, that is still intense. I actually wanted a chick flick but I’m not sure what is recommended nowadays. Maybe it’s because I’m old, my friends are old, most of us are married and stuff. Gosh, I miss the thrills and butterflies of love birds. I used to enjoy the shopaholic girl series. Recently, I loved the Crazy Rich Asian movie – so something along that line? Light, lovey-dovey themes.

It seems that now I like reading more than playing games. One of those recurrent phases in life, only hoping that it will last longer. This haul costs me a total of RM234.67 with free delivery to Melaka. My package was couriered by DHL Express and reached me in less than a week since all of my books are in stock. I hope to get more during the Christmas season.

MT Washi tape pop up store at Kinokuniya KLCC

I’m a newbie in washi tape. I have only got to know about them since 2015.  I bought my few first rolls from aliexpress. Many months later I discovered washi tape sellers in our local scene. My current favourite is Lootersbox. I really hope they would open a physical store in Melaka one day and conduct workshops and such. I would be their regular customer and buy something on a weekly basis even though they’re just sticker flakes.

Last Wednesday I went to Kinokuniya KLCC to check out the MT Washi Tape pop up store.

I salute Youtubers who could produce content on a regular basis on their channel. I think it requires courage and be a bit shameless on your part to actually hold out your camera in public to capture a moment. I am a bit shy on that part which is an obstacle, I think, if you intend to be a Youtuber or successful lifestyle blogger. But it’s ok, it is a learning curve for a jaded writer like myself. There is always a price to pay for being successful but let’s hope it is all worth it yahh..

I spent just below RM300 in Kinokuniya alone on the washi tapes and FLOW magazine.  I figured since this is an annual event for MT, I should splurge within my means and save more money again for next year’s convention. After all, I did miss the ones they had in Pavillion last year.

If I were to include my petrol, toll and duit makan all… I’d say the trip to Kay Ell is about RM500. Thank Allah for pay day the next day. Regardless, I am a happy lady. A happy mom. A happy wife. Not so happy to get back to work the next day though.
