  For Love Or Money?
One thing I hate about this 'tengah bulan' scenario is my 'pokai-ness'. It really sucks when there are so many things that tempt you to buy, buy, buy, like this magazine I noticed when we were bringing Ikmal to the clinic in Taman Sri Ampang (the little angel is down with fever again, the 2nd time this month!)

I didn't notice the name of the magazine, First agaknya, but it's definitely a made in Malaysia MOVIE magazine. The cover, which caught my eyes featured my once flavour of the month - Clive Owen in his Dwight mode. Which movie is it? Yes... it's one of the most anticipated movie of 2005 - Frank Miller's Sin City !!!! I (literally) screamed my heart out as I flipped thru the contents. Wow, there it is, in black and white (just like the movie itself, gorgeous photos of the casts in their Sin City mode- Bruce Willis, Clive Owen, Mickey Rourke, Elijah Wood (post- Frodo Baggins) and the babelicious babes of the City - Devon Aoki, Rosario Dawson and Jessica Alba. Gosh, I nearly drooled on the mag, if not for the stare from the guy at the cash register...

But then, I didn't buy it. At RM9.50, it is considered as a luxury item at times like this. So, bubbye mag. Maybe I will look for you when the time comes...

(15 hours later...)
Lunch hour today...

As I browsed thru the magazine at the little shop infront of Giant Sg Wang, I noticed this bumper issue of Empire with Colin Farrell on the cover (in his almost gay Alexander mode), going for more than half the normal price. OMG!!!!! I have been eyeing this mag since the last two months, and now it's in the bargain bin. I really, really wanted this issue, as it comes free with a 108-page booklet on movie trivias.

Alamak, should I buy it before somebody else grab it? What about my pokai-ness?

Without any hesitation, I grabbed the mag, paid RM10 to the Indian guy over the counter, and head back to my office. Huahahhahaahah!!!!!! No money, no problem? I guess I'll think about THAT later. For now, I will savour the fruit of my labour, ;-)

Mamat, lu bikin gue muflis daa...

I'm a number cruncher, married and a mother to 2 handsome young boys ~ Ikmal & Nabil. Also a self-confessed movie freak, a walking dictionary of useless facts and I just love swapping postcards. I love loud music, black t-shirts, good books and hot caramel macchiato. I hate hypocrisy, the colour pink, rude people, busy-bodies and those with 'holier than thou' attitude. :) I blog 'coz I hate talking. In real life, I'm this quiet person, often immersed in my own virtual world of obsessions, work and whatnot. Comments, suggestions, brickbats (even virtual cupcakes!) are loved, as long as you use the proper channels a.k.a the comments thingy or my e-mail ~ zackzip [at] hotmail [dot] com.
