If diamond were girl's best friend, then designer bag must be our second best friend!
The weather was beautiful this weekend, so I decided to take a walk down the bloor street and get Jen a nice bag.
David came visit from Waterloo on Saturday, he arrived around noon. So we took the subway down to Dundas, and went to Salad King for lunch. Salad King was as packed as usual, and the food was as delicious as usual too. David claimed that he had his best pat thai there. After lunch, we walked on Yonge towards Bloor. We went into all these designer stores, and opened David's eyes (espcially when he saw some really ugly plastic bags being thrown around at the reduced section and still had the price tags around $1000) at Holts. Anyway, we were on a mission of finding Jen her first Coach bag.
I've known Jen for almost 12 years now. She has always been very caring and supportive. Every year, she would get birthday gifts for me, she mailed me post cards from taiwan and even Christmas she would get something small for her friends. On the other hand, I am not that type of person who remembers details, sometimes I even forget her exact birth date... But I thank her for all the things that she has done for me, and I thought about girl's second best friend - a designer bag! As a girl, I can probably say almost 100%, you can never forget your first designer bag! For me, it was my Miu Miu bag that I earned and bought for myself, and I don't think I'll ever forget that. So I decided to get Jen a Coach bag to not only show my appreciation for her being such a good friend of mine but also have her remember me forever..haha! When I was at the Coach store, I was surprised that the price in CAN is the same as the price in the US. After getting the bag, David and I decided to go for some dessert. The sunshine and the warm breeze were just perfect, so we didn't really mind to walk a little more. So we strolled back to Dundas and had the super good ice cream brownie at Hardrock Cafe. Then we walked around in Eaton Centre and went home. Since we had a pretty late lunch, we decided to have a late dinner. So we went to Duff's wings for dinner around 9pm. After dinner, Sarah called me to go sing Karaoke at RQ with her, so I went and we had whole lounge for ourselves; we had so much fun actually singing at karaoke instead of mad drinking! LOL!
Then next day, Sunday, We took Cherry and Honey to the park, and we went Wasabi for supper.
Monday was Thanksgiving, since no stores were open, we stayed home and made Lasagna. (of course it was so good as usual! haha)
David left to Waterloo around 6pm, along with his food and Jen's Coach Bag. Around 8pm or so, I got a msn msg from Jen with "HOLY CRAP, I AM SPEECHLESS! THANK YOU!", and I knew she got her present and I got her surprised and she loved it. It felt really nice to make someone happy! Haha.
For those of you who are having a hard time figuring out how to be the special someone in a girl's life...take my advice, it is simple, be the person who get her the first designer bag or the first diamond ring! Can't go wrong with THAT! Here is the bag I got for Jen, it is really nice!
