Of Random Things #68: Miri Shopping Buys

Was in Miri for a day trip yesterday as I had to run some errands at MAS counter at Miri Airport as the counter in Brunei had been shut down since months ago. Hence, the nearest counter would be the one in Miri. Decided to go down yesterday as Ing was convenient for a meet up.

We met up over breakfast and some shopping before she goes out to do her Amway stuffs while I met up with Alan for lunch. I tried myself some clothing at the boutique shops in Imperial Permaisuri City Mall. It used to be me wandering around boutique shops aimlessly while Ing tried on clothing. However, it was the other way round this time round.

Ever since I started losing weight, I started to take an interest back in fashion again. LOL! So, let me show you what I had tried on and bought.


PADINI Concept Store | RM39

I took an L size for this dress as I could not find an M size on display. It fitted my body perfectly without feeling tight around the waist. The fabric texture is completely stretchable. When I first tried it on, Ing said it looked nice on me. Well, I thought so too as the length was good enough to carry off as work attire.

Pair it with a piece of cardigan, you are good to go and looking formal and neat enough. When I showed this picture to Sister, she said it looked like a costume for a nurse. *wtf* And Kaylie said it looked like a dress for a waitress. *double wtf*

Both colleague and Mom said this looked nice. Sister finds this dress design to be rather oldish than trendy. However, if you had been following the trend lately, fashion trend nowadays had gone way back to the 80’s.



Tried this on but without buying it as I find the price does not justify with the quality. B$30 for that quality was kinda out of mind. But if you want something elegant and yet casual at the same time, this was good enough.

I liked this dress as it kinda showed my body figure in an M size. But what I don’t like was the plunging neckline. But Mom could always fix it up with some kind of buttons though. Colleague and Mom didn’t like this black dress but Sister and Ing preferred this over the blue dress.


1-Day J&J Acuvue Moist | RM110

I used to be a contact lens wearer but not often anymore as I preferred eyeglass over contact lens nowadays. But I still wear it sometimes when I feel like it especially when I am on a holiday whereby I need sunglasses.

Rather than buying monthly contact lenses, I now wear daily disposable ones. That way I don’t have to worry about my contact lenses from being contaminated or whatsoever. I am currently using Focus brand but I still prefer J&J over Focus.

  1. Ooh, both dresses look nice on you, but I would have to agree with your sister and mother. The black one does look better than the blue one. The neckline is pretty low. Hopefully you’ll be able to fix it up. πŸ˜€

    • Thank you for the compliment! =D

      Nah … I ended up not buying the black one with plunging neckline as I doubt I will wear it more than once. I will most probably only wearing it once or twice and then it will be hidden behind my closet.

      I had bought something similar too three years ago but never worn it. In the end, I went for the safest option and bought the blue one. That I could wear for work and just pair it up with a cardigan.
