Here are some pictures i took while on a recent trip there so you can see for yourself what a treasure trove it is. Unlike in Singapore where everything sells out pretty fast, you can find mooks 2-3 seasons past displaying innocently on the shelves. The only downside is, even though the mooks are oldish - it is most often not discounted. Rather the newer mooks stand a better chance of being discounted. Work that out.
Here are a few snaps i took.This was just before Christmas, hence the pseudo Christmas tree deco.I can't believe they still have not managed to sell the Non-no magazines with the Star Agnes B tote because it is gorgeous! Even my mom wanted it. Maybe they just brought in too much stock. Same problem in Singapore, still stacks of it available in Ngee Ann City Kinokinuya.
Imagine they were giving away 30% discounts on selected mooks, not magazines though! And this was the last Harrods mook left. It's RM 50 ++ so a 30% discount would mean it costs around RM 35++ . Now tell me where can you buy a Harrods tote for that price in Malaysia?
Now these are the magazines available on a recent trip last weekend. So the stock available would still be the same even if you go to Kinokinuya now.
Around 6 copies each of Steady the one with the Beams tote and even the one with the Agnes B lunch bag and bag hanger.
There are a good selection of Japanese magazines outside of the usual TKJ mags.
More with socks and In Red with Laura Ashley calender and tote i forgot what brand.
And so many goodies still left on the shelf for example the Sweet magazine with the Cher Shore tote.
And many of the Mooks are still available.Mainly because how it is so exorbitantly priced compared to Taiwan and i presume Japan as well.
And oh i succumbed and got myself the Cutie magazine with the HbG tote cos its really cute and the magazine only costs RM 35 with a 10% discount if you're an Isetan card member.
I can never resist buying at least something when i'm there cos how often do i go to KLCC right?
On another note, Chinese New Year is in the air! My favourite time of the year! And it's the year of the rabbit! So many people are gonna be aiming to have babies this year.
Prosperous looking bunny outside Pavilion.
And it's like so cheena inside. I like it.
Allright on a completely unrelated note, i went bonkers when i saw 3 for RM 20 I-Phone covers in Kota Bharu Mall and bought 6. With 3 of them in pink..*i am not girly.. i am not girly*
Retail therapy is great!
