Timmy Has A New Set of Eyes

My old set of glasses was crooked.

Somehow I managed to get away with it since not too many people noticed but I knew I had to change it some time, sooner rather than later.

Unfortunately since the launch of Nuffnang, I have been so caught up with work that I decided to do it later rather than sooner.

Until last week.

Last week I paid a visit to this shop in Gurney Plaza Penang.

And when you go buy a pair of new specs, you have to bring at least ONE chick along with you... so she can tell you whether your new specs gives you better or worse sex appeal.

That particular friend refused to let me take a picture of her to put on my blog.

So this is the best shot I managed to get out of her.

I had a hard time picking out a pair of glasses.

There were just SOO MANY!!!

Now when it comes to specs, I'm a very simple person.

I buy the simplest pair of specs, no brand necessary. So with the lens and all it would normally cost about RM200-RM300.

But my friends and the mystery girl I brought refused to let me buy another 'cheap' pair of specs.

They veered my attention away from the showcase I was looking at, and on to one on the wall.

The ones locked up in a solid case. The ones that you know cost 2-3 times the ones I normally buy.

So anyway I tried them on but finally settled on a pair of Oakleys that cost me RM830, though one of my dear friends there managed to help me bargain it all the way down to around RM770.

I thought long and hard about buying such an expensive pair of glasses, thinking again of the question
"Hmm.. how many Nuffnang ads do I have to sell to earn back this RM770."

Then again, Nuffnang now has campaigns running from Nokia, Honda, Cornetto, Hitz.fm, Nescafe, Airasia and even Twisties. So I thought... bah what the hell.. and went ahead to buy it.

The little nifty new pair of glasses even came with a kickass casing that looked like some sort of bullet.

A lot better than the cheap plastic casing that I'm used to.

Check out my new pair of Oakleys everyone!

Now here is a question to the ladies.

LADIES!!!

Do you prefer... the OLD Boss Stewie...

or... THE NEW!!!
*Please just pay attention to the glasses and ignore the t-shirts I'm wearing.

Sorry to sad that the RM500 difference might make no drastic difference...but it still looks good on you niway :P

mooiness said...

New ones FTW! But was it a RM500 difference? Time will tell. If you score with a chick without having to spend too much on drinks, then it's worth it! :D

The t-shirts rock too.

It isn't worth the extra RM500. Not much difference really. Should have used the money to buy a tub of Haagen Dazs instead.

Looks almost the same. New one looks nicer a bit because of the darker frame.
