New Watch for us…

During my last trip to Dubai, I got PaPa and I Tissot watch. We both had our first branded watch back in 2003 after our wedding. Our first pair (which was also Tissot) cost us less than RM 1000 which we bought in Changi Airport.

When I was going to Dubai, PaPa asked me to check out if we can get another pair for ourselves. I wanted to get a different brand for ourselves but other brand was way too expensive. Prices had gone up and our budget burst.

I ended up buying the same model which was slightly above our budget. Instead of buying from Dubai Airport, I ended up buying from KLIA on the way back because it was cheaper. The pair of watch was almost RM 1300 (after 30%). The new pair was the same model as our old one with the two main differences

• Titanium Strap (which was lighter)
• Black screen (our previous one was white).

We preferred simpler design so that it can be worn either business or casual. So, my manager and I didn’t shop at Dubai because the things were not that cheap (besides having no time). My friend, who would be going to LA next month for duty travel, was already getting a whole long list of shopping things to get for friends and family, from clothes like apple bottom, Oash Kosh and branded handbags especially Coach. I hope she would not get charge for excess baggage when she came back from LA.
