SMadness

artsy
 at first i thought the orcs were storming mawdor --- then i remembered i really wasn't an LOTR fan.

my second thought was: "is this the end of the world?" imagine, left and right people were shoving items into their carts. in front of me, the lines to the cashier snaked around the displays. panic-buying. chaos. this wasn't a sight i had envisioned when i planned a quick visit to the mall. and it certainly wasn't a normal occurrence at 10:15 in the morning. gadzooks, didn't the mall just open?!

(un)fortunately for me, SM was having one of its 3-day sales on the day i decided to get p-chan a new playpen. heehee. i simply wasn't prepared!

Re: hello

Ah, I can relate to this experience of yours.

It seems that SM malls have this special 'first-three-hours' sale during the first day, wherein people can get 10 to 20 discount less on all items (and not just selected ones). That explains why the people you saw were shopping like mad at 10:15 a.m.

Hahaha! I know, the special discount was both a blessing and a curse. Wahaha!
