7 Deadly Sins: Extravagance

I returned to Singapore recently mainly to see a doctor. The doctors in China, namely Suzhou, are quite unreliable. When I requested for a blood test to be done to ascertain a specific content, they dismissed it and REFUSED me. It sounds ridiculous seriously because they can milk more profits from the patient but perhaps, when a country has a population of 1.3 + billion and counting, the value of an individual's health/ life is treated with levity.

When in Singapore, visiting my doctor in Orchard Road, Paragon, is an expensive trip. Less so for the charges, more so for the temptations of shopping joints that beckons me after the appointment. And there was a pent up desire that was dangerously on the brink of eruption. I didn't buy anything much in China.

To cut the long story short, in 1 hour, I bought 2 watches from BCBG.
Royale Watch in Emerald Strap

Plisse Watch in Royal Purple

Guilty pleasures--that's the oxymoron I am living out daily. And yes, you've guess it right. Watches/ Timepieces are one of my many weaknesses.

Hi Jenn, thank God BCBG watches are more affordable than their clothes. And lucky, I am not crazy to go Gaga over brands like Cartier and Rolex yet. So, thanks to "self control" I am not in debt. Hahaha.
