Every Christmas week, I’ve never bothered to celebrate nor going out for a shopping spree on Boxing day. Heck, all my years in Melbourne I never thought of going out and fighting for my life to grab a parking space or pushing through the rowdy crowd in a tiny space retail shop. But here I am, in Chadstone Shopping Centre.
For the first time I can see throngs of people walking or running in and out of each retail shop, hoping to find a bargain. Good thing I’m not a fancy shopper.
My stomach is growling now. I didn’t have a single meal since this morning and my girlfriend (she’s the opposite of me, a bargain shopper) is still enjoying herself in her few favourite shops.
I should have brought along a book to read. Actually I’m kind of regretting for not buying a Nintendo DS to kill time especially during these periods.
