|H&M shopping bags - it could be|
made from better material.
Christmas comes early for me.
A lot of people are incapable of experiencing real joy. Best to avoid such people for they are not good for you and would bring you down. As for me, it seems that all I want to experience is joy all the time! I cannot seem to get enough of it. I would spend all my money in H&M if I'm not living in a hot tropical climate like Malaysia. They've been in Malaysia slightly over a year now and expanded really fast with so many outlets in the city already. Their extremely bright red neon lights feels like the headlights of a Broadway show in New York and it beckons you to enter for some kind of show! And what a show it is - glamorous clothings at such affordable prices. The location of their stores are right in your face - easing busy city folks to identify their recognisable brand on the spot in this crowded city.
Certain fashion designers let the fabric speak to them. Interestingly, when I saw the trench coat at H&M, it seems to be speaking to me instead! It's like some psychic connection one gets when meeting your true love. Or some kind of mysterious spirit that comes out and get you!
I know in hot weather Malaysia, rarely people wears any fancy coat of any kind. Except for the ones in the office, a good corporate office coat would make a man or women look more "professional". I think that is supposed to be called a jacket, and not a coat. But in Malaysia, these two terms seem to be one and the same! One cannot really think too much about the conditions when the love for fashion takes total control. Who cares if I'm not wearing this trench coat right away? I could just keep it for the next time I'm out of the country.

without being seen on my sneakers.
Once I set my mind on anything, there's no turning back! I'm that determined. That first visit at H&M, I try to gauge the right coat size for me. Usually, I'll go for the smallest size because most clothings may expand and become loose after being worn after a long time. But this is a trench coat we're talking about here where I'll be wearing another layer of clothing. Still, I tried to find out what is the smallest size available there. It's interesting to note that they carry European sizes ranging from 42, 44 until 50. There is no size 43. I'm really curious to know why they don't carry that size, as I am curious to know why certain sports apparel outlets do not carry shoe size 8.5 (UK). The smallest size usually sells fast mainly because a majority of Asians have smaller frames.

snap a pic to see if it actually
looks good on me.
So for the mean time, I'm free to explore other options. The first place I decided to go was back to the small boutique I purchased my faux-fur coat for my BMW Film Awards Best Actor awards ceremony. I like the salesperson there because this Chinese guy was extremely energetic and listens intently to every word I said. But when I visited there the second time, he was not around. Sadly, they don't sell trench coat either. I wasn't in a hurry to get that one since I already got a Burberry in storage, so I took my sweet time to actually walk around to find out other stores that might carry the item I wanted. This is not an impulse or must-have purchase. I took my sweet time, no hurry.

Then comes the rainy weather. I do a lot of commuting and when it rains outside, the inside of the train can feel extremely freezing cold. From one end of the city all the way to Kelana Jaya, the last stop - be prepared to witness the changing weathers from cloudy to fierce storms and sudden sunshine. It's a schizophrenic weather spectacle outside the train. All of these in just a single trip! The weather is crazy and unpredictable here! The one skill I have is I'm able to detect a rain coming way in advance. I don't know why I'm always up from my bed, changed and got out of the house right before the downpour starts. It's a strange power but I can smell a rain coming way in advance.

too "long" for my taste.
Can't they make
But not yet. It doesn't carry my size! So the cashier enquired everywhere for me for my size. No one should wear anything bigger than their actual size - it just makes that person look lumpy schlumpy. Its simply not right. In my heart, I've readily submit myself to fate after all the adventures I've been through in finding this trench coat - if there's one right size meant for me then it shall be so. Fate seems to agree with me and there's actually the one and only left! All the way at One Utama outlet. I commanded them to immediately reserve that one for me. Its only reserved for 24 hours. The most magical thing about that day I made my purchase at that outlet - it was their 1st anniversary. But that outlet didn't have any promotion or celebration of any kind, but I bought it anyway. Fate indeed does exist in meeting the coat you deserves.
