Once Upon a Dancing Fish and Whimsical

Yesterday, mum asked me (again) to bring her to crafty shops to buy some stuffs for her work, or shall i say her current hobby in her free times. Besides Craft haven in One Utama, her other favorites has always been the Whimsical shop in Bangsar Shopping Center. The shop name i think is Scrapbooking or something but my mum likes to call it the Whimsical. Okay ma whatever.

Hello there! Imma mustard queen! Rofl!

And here's mum too busy to even noticed i was taking her picture. She likes these hand-crafty thing since forever!! And she always knows where to find all these good stuffs. And she even make friends with the sales persons of the shop. Not that she doesn't know the owner but owners usually doesn't hang around at the shop all the time. So, that is why she usually get discounts, and sometimes when the shops have great offers or promotions, they will call up to my mum the first thing before opens it up to public. Kudos to my mama! 

Saw this cute baskets i found on the floor and i was like, Ma, is this for sale? Mum asked the girl at the shop and she said, No, it's the shopper's basket..Like a happy kid i grabbed the basket and put all the items that mum's gonna buy in it =)

While mum having her time in the shop, i walked around BSC and entered Times, just to look for a nice planner. Actually, i didn't wanna spend on an expensive ones but i just love to be around books (i kinda love a bookstore, heh). I went straightaway to the stationary sections, and found many cool new designs of planner, but of course when i looked at the price, i puts it back. And i remembered mum told me she's gonna make a really nice one for me. The way how she explains it, it will be something like this.

Then, i went to a gift section. Too many cool designs, from a frame, to a hand-rest, and they have these cute lil toys and doodles, and of course, cool designs of mugs. And i saw something familiar, i followed Sazzy Falak on Instagram and she shared her 'I'm not a paper cup' cup, a present from Aishah Sinclair. I love the cup so much that i was gonna look for it later and there i found it! In Times of BSC! Already get my hands on one of the cups but then i forgot, i was there with mum. One thing about mum, we can't buy anything unless we really gonna use it. Not that we don't have enough cups at home, rite? So i said to myself, okay maybe next time. It won't be finished after all (hoping it will not).

So, i just bought myself a Cleo and Reader's Digest. Guess what, i got a free Reader's Digest's 2012 glittery planner, yeay!

And so later after we had done our shopping, mum decided to have dinner at a Malay-Indo cuisine's restaurant. She went there before with her friends and she said it was almost the same as Sundanese (was in KLCC) and also Bumbu Desa.  This restaurant is called Dancing Fish. I believe it is named after their main dish, the dancing fish itself. We ordered the fish (of course), and some Daging Dendeng, Coconut Soup, a tea for mum while i had Black Jelly for drinks. Costs less than RM100, for only the two of us =)

Thanx mum for the day!
