A Little Home Shopping

Last night, B and I headed to Harvey Norman at our favourite
shopping centre IKANO specifically to get an air cooler for our home. It's been scorching hot for more than a month and after much discussion, we decided an air cooler would be simpler and cheaper to while away this current heat wave. penat

We already had a model in mind and I was excitedly anticipating a cool night of watching DVD in my living-room with our new portable air cooler. We wanted one with wheels to make it easier for us to push it around our home, wherever needs cooling. Unfortunately, Harvey Norman was all out of the model we wanted and there was no indication when the new stock would arrive. The salesperson claimed he sold the last model just a few minutes ago. Just my luck!

I was quite taken with the home theater speaker system package on sale too. From bookshelf and satellite to in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, it was a massive affair. We've never had a home theater system and I'm referring to the whole works; complete with speakers and subwoofers for maximum impact so I was a little enticed!

The s
et that caught my eye would be perfect for our cosy condo unit. Instead of box speakers, we could opt for high-quality in-wall and in-ceiling lines, which can be used as front speakers due to their unique angled driver configuration. It looked easy enough to install and I was almost sold until B reminded me of our actual purpose to Harvey Norman and that was to get an air cooler and not a home theater system! malu ihikhik

I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get to buy our air cooler or the cool home theater set but we didn't go home empty-handed. I made a quick stop at the new Durian Pancake stall I recently discovered and even bought a Milk Tea Ice Blended Bubble Tea for good measure. Have you tried the Durian Pancake yet? The durian wrap is filled with delicious cream and durian filling...sinfully yummy!

Hey Ayie!

Mariuca,  June 26, 2009 6:27 PM

Very the hot la Tekkaus and yeah, we think an air cooler will do the trick just fine! Not as expensive as aircon and yet almost as cooling, not bad at all! :)

Mariuca,  June 26, 2009 6:27 PM

JS link ngan Twitter ye? I pun not sure sekarang ni, but I do know JS is having some commenting issues, which I hope they’ll solve soon. Nak tukar JS ke? :)

Mariuca,  June 26, 2009 6:30 PM

Denaihati, mmg best pun, cuba lah! Mcm menarik gitu this pancake, tu yg ada repeat performance from me ha ha!

Mariuca,  June 26, 2009 6:34 PM

You know me Ayie, a little spendthrift unnecessarily ha ha, but yeah, the home theatre system can wait until we move to a bigger place. For now, we really need that air cooler first! J

Mariuca,  June 26, 2009 6:36 PM

I like durians Ayie, don love love them but they’re nice to eat once in a while. The pancake is new so I tot we’d give it a try and it turned out pretty yummy! Very interesting. :)

I wonder if i can eat that pancake? DOes it have that durian smell? I mean that's my weakness...when I smell something goes with my tastebuds. Even if I know it's good, the smell over powers the taste. >:o
