malaysia-mega-sale-carnivalThis is the season for the Malaysia Sale again! Its a time for a lot of events and bargain in the country. For the Mega Carnival sale, there will be 11 malls that will be offering great discounts in Klang Valley itself. So, whatever items you’re looking for from bags, clothes to equestrian apparel, I’m sure you can get great bargains during this season.Even the leading airlines here in Malaysia have pledged their support for this Mega sale by offering excess baggage allowance for passengers flying out of Malaysia through Malaysian airlines and offering a ” No Admin Fee” campaign from Airasia. I’m sure a lot of tourists are ready to flock the country again for this great event.

I’ll be posting the Schedule of events and activities for this Mega sale next time.


10 Ringgit Shoes June 26, 2009

Have you ever bought a 10 Ringgit shoes? I just did and I’m so happy and satisfied with what I bought. It’s actually just the high heeled shoes that I’ve been looking for to match with my Punjabi suits and Sarees. I could remember that my Hubby took me to the shopping mall last month and asked me to buy a pair. So, I ‘obediently’ searched for my perfect shoes but the ones I like cost more than 40RM. And there were ordinary shoes that were sold from 20-30RM. Even if they’re cheaper but I don’t feel satisfied with it. So, I just told my Hubby that I’ll just have to wait till I get the perfect pair rather than just buying and not feeling contented with what I bought.

And I’m sure happy that I does pay to wait because  I bought this 10 ringgit shoes from The Store . Actually, it had a 70% off price tag which explains the cheap price but good quality of the product. So, now I have a nice pair of shoes to match my punjabi suits and formal wear.


1st Day of Sale June 17, 2009

We were disappointed, we expected the MPH booksale to be a big SALE as announced in their banners which were totally everywhere in town but it didn’t turn out as expected.

The biggest discount that they could give was only 20% and that is if you’re an MPH card holder and 15% for Non card holder. And all the rest was 10% and a small price slash from the normal price.

I was prepared to buy some books for my kids, my HUbby and me. But since it was not the way that we expected, we just bought book for Tricia and her cousin who was with us.


MPH Book Sale in Taiping June 12, 2009

I just saw the banners all around town announcing the MPH Book sale at the Atrium of Taiping Sentral from July 17-21, 2009. I’m so excited! I love going to MPH when we’re in Penang or KL. That’s the first thing I checked when I learned that there’s a new mall here in Taiping. But unfortunately, they don’t have a branch here yet ( that’s as far as I know).

So, that explains my excitement for this upcoming booksale. I hope I could find some cheap childrens book and some Christian or self help book too. I’ll have to blog about my great finds next week.


80% Off on Damaged Items April 21, 2009

Whenever we do our groceries in Tesco or Carrefour, there will always be one special section that we never miss check out before we pay for our stuff – that is the place where they display the slightly damaged items ( or food almost due its expiry date) and on sale for 80% or more than 80% discount.

I can’t count how many times we got great ‘treasures’ from this section, from Prego Spaghetti Sauce ( with a dented tin can), children’s diapers to children’s toys.

It’s really a nice feeling to get something for a much cheaper price.. then I go back home, happy and very contented with what I bought. 🙂
