My Shopaholic Confessions

Hi my name is Charles Chan and I'm a shopaholic!

Shopping is the best sport, best theraphy for a troubled stressed mind, best way to calm depressed souls. With just a simple swipe--- (Visa tagline works) All it takes. Visa.

Shopping is like going to heaven. A great find is everything that can make anyone happy.

My shopaholic experience--- hmm... I think it's an everyday?! experience, working at Bonifacio High Street and passing all the malls going home, it's really a torture. Most of the time it's hard to resist the call of the items. When shopping I always experience the battle of the brain vs. what your heart is telling you.

For me it has always been--- damn! Just Do It! and without thinking, with just your heart telling you that 'this is what I want'. I can feel that fellow shopaholics feels the same and thinks the same shopping principle--- if you have found the best red shoes, buy it, in won't be in the shelves the next dayEvidence of being a shopaholic (Visa hologram already chopped in half the first week it was delivered to me)

HongKong, the best shopping place ever--- my experience there deserves a round down. In this big place of people and shops, you are just bond to either get broke or uber happy. Shopping hours in HK is just the best--- they open at around 11 a.m. and some shops closes at around 1a.m., so with me just waking up at around 10 a.m. to 12 n.n. it's the best time. One of the best shops there is H&M--- I mean they cover latest fashion trends in a not so expensive tag price. Giordano Concepts, also have a good stock of super really stylish clothes--- I found the 'kinkiest' shoes there, but then mishap came to me--- I have no size! I almost got mad with the sales lady because she can't understand that I want the shoes for me (yeah because it's for girls, why not? it's just the same like my other shoes). Good thing we have GC here alreay at Rockwell! Zara have very nice clothes too.

Here, I also have great buys in Divisoria 168, Prime Block, etc., and then there's also the malls--- TriNoMa, Rockwell, Bonifacio High Street, SM The Block, SM Megamall--- F&H, of course there is Bench (Global Filipino Brand), Penshoppe & Oxygen (Golden ABC) which I don't know what happened with their style.

It's just like this when you like something --- You don't have to think just grab it--- then think, lol. So let's join Rebecca Bloomwood and:
