Change of Needs and Wants
My best friend will be coming back to Malaysia for holidays, and being very practical, she asked what kind of birthday (very belated) and Christmas present I would like her to bring back from New York for me. Would I like the Philosophy skin care and the latest Jamie Oliver cook book (both I used to love)? I don't need Philosphy skin care now
since I always have the motherly radiant, as I go for those quick and easy just slap everything to your face/eye kind of skin care. No more time for exfoliating or doing mask.
The only cook books I purchase now are related to cooking or baking for babies/children, but I already have 5, do I need another? So this year, I asked her for a book which gives you ideas of games and craft you can play and do with a toddler or a child.
I noticed that being a mum now, I seldom buy or ask for things for myself, everything I buy or want, somehow will be related to Zara.
Just like recently, I was contemplating between an LV bag (the Bucket, I love it), and a digital SLR. It costs about the same. One would fulfill my own vanity or desire, the other would allow me to capture beautiful moments of my child. Which do I choose? Tough choice!
We just went and bought the digital SLR today. Daddy's anniversary, Christmas, valentine's present to me. Bye Bye LV, maybe next year, I'll ask Santa again for it, just maybe.
