Jusco Member’s Shopping Day November 30, 2005

Posted by Zara's Mama in Zara.

You get 15% off for toys, stationeries, clothing; and you get 5% off for baby items and in the supermarket. Very attractive. So I took a day off yesterday, and went shopping with King’s Wife.

We met up at Delicious at 1-U for lunch. I had a grilled vegetable sandwich, and offered some to Zara. The fussy eater has developed new skill to refuse food must be due to too many force feedings from mummy. She let me put the food in her mouth, but she just casually trusted her tongue to push the food out. Clever indeed! So, she didn’t like the sandwich.

From her knapsack, I took out a hard boil egg, to the gasps of my nieces (“You have an egg in your bag!?”). I thought maybe she’ll have the egg for lunch instead. I offered it to her, she took it, but just like earlier, she pushed the egg out with her tongue. OK, didn’t like the egg as well.

Luckily I have another back up, I took out a banana (My nieces: “A banana?? What else do you have in the bag??”) for the just-in-case situation, because Zara never refused bananas. True enough, with the banana, she happily took and swallowed it.

After she finished her banana lunch, and my nieces were done with theirs, King Wife’s and I got them to bring her to the big cushion right in front of the restaurant to play while we slowly enjoyed the rest of the lunch as well as our drink.

Once we’re done over stuffed ourselves with lunch, the shopping spree began. We thought we had ample time, so we took our time glancing at some of the shops in the new wing, and had afternoon tea before we went to Jusco, by then it was already 4:30pm.

We regretted not coming to Jusco earlier, because there was so much to buy. We spent almost 3hours shopping for Christmas presents, since there’s 15% off for all toys (within the family, Christmas presents are only meant of the kids). Zara has been very good, most of the time she just followed Sam around, playing with some of the toys, or happy just being able to explore, touching this and that.

I bought a bicycle for Zara, toy house for Sam (she chose it herself), model figurines for my 2 nephews, and Alicia (King’s wife older child) chose herself some earrings and necklace. I stocked up on lots of baby wipes and bottle cleaner as well. When I saw the bill at the cashier, my jaw just dropped, close to RM800RM600 even after all the discount! Christmas is a very expensive season!

With supermarket items having 5% of discount, guess it’s only wise to stock up on things. I bought more rubbish.

At the end of the 8hr shopping spree, my whole car was stuffed with shopping bags (just enough room for Zara’s car seat), a very big hole in my wallet, and a very tired Zara. She’s good though, not much fretting, and just went along with us.

Jusco is sure smart to have such a deal going during this time of the year, and I’m (along with King’s Wife) always such a sucker for sales.

Christmas – a time to give and share. RM800/day…. ok lah. One swipe of the card can ledi loh. And Zara looks so sweet in her stroller… never leave home without it!!

9. Helen - November 30, 2005

Ya, I know how we lose ourselves in the presence of temptation.. lol As Samm said, X’mas is a time to give and share.. so, you’ll be putting a smile on many ppl’s face!! Priceless!! lol

10. King's wife - November 30, 2005

when she said “a lot of baby wipes”, she meant A LOT!! Can last till zara is 5 yrs old…

8 hrs is sap sap sui lah. If we didn’t have the kids with us and zara’s mama didn’t have to balik makan dinner, we can continue till jusco close!

11. Zara's Mama - November 30, 2005

btw, it’s ‘just’ RM600, typo earlier

As a mum, has to be like that, must constantly have my ๅ…ซๅฎ็ฎฑ with me.

Now can blog after Zara sleeps b’cos we got streamyx already..

I’m sure J has a similar bag like that where she can whip out all the ’emergency’ goodies if LLS complained.

Yeah, like King’s Wife said.. 8hrs is sap sap sui.

Err, yeah la.. But the presents still need to get no matter what, so in a while got some savings.

I hope the kids will love it, especially my nephews who were not present to choose their own gifts.

I’m a sucker for sales.. if Isetan got big sales, I’ll also be big customer for Isetan.. no loyalty one. ๐Ÿ˜›
Yeah, got King’s Wife’s 2 girls to babysit Zara, that’s why can grab so many things.

You work for Master Card?? (or was it Visa that said that?)
Yeah, better start the Christmas shopping, better still if do it during sales.

1 1/2 month.. Too bad you are not my nephew, or else I’ll give you RM100 voucher to makan makan. ๐Ÿ˜›
I have MSN, but seldom logon, my preference is Yahoo b’cos my colleagues are all on yahoo.
You got yahoo id?

yeah, never leave home w/out the card, and the stroller. ๐Ÿ˜›

Hopefully, hopefully.. I better go and shop for something for myself too.. to put a smile on my face..

haha.. there’s always an excuse to shop.

King’s Wife,
Aiya.. T’s baby coming.. we share the wipes!

And yeah, egghead probably never met with a shopoholic before..

No matter how you compare, it’s still cheaper to shop in Malaysia than in S’pore. Seems like you got good stocks for Christmas, Agnes.

13. ky - December 1, 2005

Hahahaa, who don’t like SALE?!

14. mom2ashley - December 1, 2005

hey i never got those vouchers leh….

15. Zara's Mama - December 1, 2005

Mother Superior,
you sure M’sia is cheaper? I normally like to shop in SGP, every business trip there will mean spending lots of $ (for me) boosting SGP’s economy. But.. I’m the extreme case.

Men? LOL

Ooops.. wonder if it’s good news (no need to spend the money) or bad news (can’t enjoy the discount) for you.
The expiry date of the voucher is 30th Nov though. You missed the boat this time round.

16. Allyfeel - December 1, 2005

Haha, wiper that can last until zara’s 5 yr old?? You must be kidding…

I went with my son n hubby to shop but BB got so cranky and only managed to grab some stuff. But if given me more time without BB I think I can shop like u guys la. Nowadays shopping malls getting bigger and bigger, our legs get more and more tired. Wish they have a robot to drive us around hor..

17. ky - December 1, 2005

Personally, I think men like sale also. Once those items they have been eyeing on have discount, they sure grab without thinking ๐Ÿ˜›

18. Zara's Mama - December 1, 2005

Hey, you can go and rent those bike thingy.. that you can drive around the mall..

Not sure if it’s reserved for disabled people or any body can use it. ๐Ÿ˜›

Your husband does that? My husband couldn’t be bothered. He’ll say never mind only 10% discount, I’ll go when there’s less crowd (unless the discount is really good and he thinks it’s worth it).

19. ky - December 1, 2005

Hahhaha, correct guess. Things no discount, he will think long and hard, and ask me, wanting me to say “yes, can buy”. Things on discount, no need to ask, just buy ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I always reminds him, if he is a woman, the b-friend or HB sure bankrupt!
