If only I could block from my mind the things that make me sad… in as easy a way as I block the effects of the sound of children crying and wailing on a plane.

The goodness of Chanel and Anna Sui
Got these during our trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Been eyeing Chanel Red Rubis and finally got it at Pavillion (was horrified to find out that it was sold out at KLCC), along with Anna Sui’s Minnie Mouse nail polish. It was too cute - I really couldn’t resist :x
I must admit I had my eyes peeled when I approached the Anna Sui counter. Knowing I got a set of their Christmas polishes last year, I just had to see what they had in store for Christmas this year. Teehee! And I wasn’t disappointed. If anything, I find this year’s collection even cuter than last year’s.
The red Chanel pouch was another story altogether. We were on our way back to Singapore and were at DFS. I thought they wouldn’t have anything there.. :x I guess the keyword was “thought”. Well, I was tiptoeing over the shelf to look at the display of the pouch and was probably exclaiming incoherently in my excitement (it’s not everyday that one comes across a red Chanel patent pouch with embossing).. to a point where I didn’t even realize that my colleague was right beside us.
We had to purchase three lipsticks to get the pouch (I don’t use lipstick) and so I hesitated.. but started thinking of how I could have a use for the 3 lipsticks - I could start trying to use them.. Or I could give them to my mom since she likes using them. So we left the store for the Q to get into the departure gate, but decided we should go to the loo first. While Xin was in the loo, I snuck off to DFS for one last look at the pouch… Best part was? He knew exactly where to find me when he came out of the loo.
Xin got it for me as an anniversary pressie. Am so touched and thankful that I have him with me, and happy that The Red Pouch was given to me by someone dear (this is such an understatement!). Not to mention surprised that he would gift it since it was just moments before that we both agreed that I don’t need 3 lipsticks at all lol.
Yes, I do like it when gifts are given by people who mean something to me in my life and to whom I know I mean something. It’s somewhat different from receiving a gift from a stranger or acquaintance.
While Xin’s away in KL…
The boys miss him but I think they want lie-down space on the bed more :))
