Hello Paul!

I've been out doing a lot of t-shirt shopping lately. Suddenly was struck with a t-shirt binge. There's this really nice shop in Sungai Wang that I like going to. They sell these really cool t-shirts with really unique designs. One of them I bought recently is the one I'm wearing in this picture.

Notice the grey shirt I'm wearing with the teddy bear on the front. I thought it was cute.. though both Princess and I agreed that it bordered 'gay'. 

I walked into the office the other day wearing this shirt. Robb saw me wearing a new shirt (leave it to the gay guy to notice these things) and yelled 
"STOP!!! New shirt ar? Let me see!"

I turned around to have my shirt face him and he suddenly let out a 
"FREAKIN GAY LAR!!!"

and everyone else in the office started checking out my shirt and laughing. Doria even came up to me just to take a picture of the shirt while mumbling to herself
"I can't believe my Boss is wearing a shirt like this".

I don't care! I like my teddy bear shirt.

Just last weekend Princess and I went shopping again. This time to Pavilion. We ended up in Paul Frank.
I never really got the appeal of Paul Frank until just recently.

So I decided to go buy myself a few t-shirts.

Here's one of the t-shirts I ended up buying...
(Never thought I'd ever find myself doing a "fashion blog dressing room photo pose" like that... isn't life full of surprises)

In the process of my t-shirt shopping I spotted a really cute pink bag that I thought was made just for Princess. I reached for it then brought it down from the shelf to let Princess have a hold of it.

It looked perfect for her. The minute I saw this...

I knew I had to get it for her so I put it in my shopping cart too. I ended up buying 3 t-shirts and one bag in just 15-20 minutes. 

Princess' Dad was just telling me the day before how men just shop really fast compared to women.

Guys walk into a shop, they see what they like then make a decision to buy it straight away. Girls on the other hand will try it on... then ask their friends about what they think then decide to walk around the mall to see if there's anything better... only to eventually come back again to buy it.
This is how Princess is like when she shops
"I like this dress... it's sooo nice.... but I don't know if I should buy it. I think I'll go look around first to see if there are any other dresses. Maybe I can find it cheaper somewhere else too. Nevermind I'll go and if I can't find anything else I'll come back"

Guys don't think about whether we can find a nicer t-shirt at another shop or anything like that. 

Here's how guys shop: 
"ME SEE T-SHIRT. 
ME LIKE. 
ME BUY!!!"

We've got to be the easiest retail fashion consumers ever. No wonder the fashion brands don't seem to spend as much effort marketing to guys than they do to girls. 

Anyway... Princess and I both went home that day with some new presents for ourselves.

I actually felt so much at ease and relaxed after all that shopping. Retail therapy really really works. At the end of the day Princess said 
"You like shopping!! I know you do!! Admit it admit it admit it!!!"

JD said...

Eh boss stewie, mine sometimes will also think off cheaper alternatives, especially when it comes to football kits lar. Coz the retail price here is just too expensive, so me ended up buying online. T-shirt wise, if like then just buy lar.

Boss Stewie said...

amelia: hehehe yeah i thought it was expensive too while i was a student so i wore other stuff while my friends all wore paul frank and more. but now working already can afford to buy a few once in a while

kenwooi: yes... saves so much time.. time that can be spent on my xbox

joshua: yeah... i agree that while it's no armani, it's not particularly cheap but it's a once in a while purchase

amelia: wow where is that?
