Shopping maniac..

Shopping maniac season has started in Japan. The summer sale season officially began on the 1st of july. Ofcourse i couldn't go on the very first day cause i was busy working, busy, busy making some yen so i can spend on these special occasions.

Our plan was to get up early on sunday and be outside the department store when they have just opened their doors. But due to the late night beforehand, we struggled to wake up in the morning. We arranged to meet up with some friends at 9:30, but by the time we met was already nearly 10. A quick breakfast at maccas, and we were on way into the city.

All 4 of us yawned our way into Sakae in Nagoya, so a pit stop at starbucks was a must. Japanese people almost never eat and walk or drink and walk, and i always have trouble finishing drinks off quickly... So the guys had to wait for me to finish off my drink slowly.

We finally started our shopping frenzy at 11. The boys went to check out guitars and we girls were free to check out whatever we wanted.

Every department store had mega sales ranging from 30 to 70% off. The sale stocks are genuinely from the season that just past, unlike melbourne where some sale stock are so old that i dont know which season they are from.

There were rows n rows of shoes, i so regret buying anything earlier cause everything was on sale. All the woman were busy selecting.. Trying.. And buying.

Time flies when you are shopping. Me n Aki has not even finished 1 department store when we had to leave as dinner reservation was booked at 6 and it will take us atleast one hour to get there.

Me and aki went back but still didn't manage to finish the stores. I didn't actually get anything.. Maybe this coming sunday?
