It pays to wait.....

I received an email from Toy Kingdom telling me bout their "exclusive warehouse sale" last November 3 at the Megatrade hall in SM Megamall. Since i haven't bought any Christmas gifts for the kids yet, i decided to go.

We woke up early to get a head start. We got there at 10:30 AM. To my surprise, the place was already packed. We browsed for a couple of minutes. Sans the shopping carts and terribly disorganized bundles of toys that littered the floor, we were able to get things done and started falling in line at around noon.

It was a long line and i figured that we'd be stuck there for a good 2 to 3 hours. Our makeshift cart was a huge box, probably the size of a "balikbayan box" and it was almost full. While waiting, Sam and I took turns goin back and forth to several spots that we might have missed and ended up putting more stuff in our cart-wanna-be box. When it was our turn to pay, it was already 5pm. Again, a whole Saturday spent just waiting.

On our way home, we dropped by at Festival Mall for dinner. I passed by an Adidas store again, just to check what's on the shelves. And to my surprise, there it was, a pair of Adidas Philippine Gazelle. MY SIZE.

Cool beans!

And this is what the staff told me; "sir 2 pairs na lang po yan, yung isa naka reserve na". Talk about meant to be, huh?! I had no choice (or at least i'd like to think i didn't have any) and bought it right there and then. And it hit me. "Ganito din ang nagyari sa akin last week".

I'm still crossing my fingers for that very elusive jacket. And yes, it pays to wait. No matter how long it may take.
