I received a US$50 Amazon.com gift card this morning via email. While I am happy because it came unexpectedly, my dilemma starts now. What to buy???
free Amazon Gift Card
If you know me personally, you will know that I am this weird girl who hardly ever buys anything for herself. Of course, I do buy things and I do own stuff but they are mostly things that I need rather than want. I have gone past that stage already.
I visit shopping malls almost every evening but I come home empty handed most times because no matter how I want to splash money like a “si lai”, I just don’t see anything that I want to get, or I see it but I don’t think it’s worth the price.
There’s this joke going around that if retailers depend on me, they would soon go out of business. While I have friends who could easily buy a few pairs of shoes in one shopping trip, I have been looking for a pair of shoes that I like and am comfortable wearing for ONE AND A HALF YEARS!
I am reminded of the time when my late grandmother asked me what I would like to have for Christmas, when all of us were in a shopping mall in KL years ago, and I said I did not want anything.
Actually, I would rather have cash instead of this Amazon.com gift card. So back to square one, “What to buy?” I wish I could upgrade to a Nokia E71 or an Apple iPhone 3G but it’s “just” US$50!
