Me n my sis followed a local tour agency's trip to Seattle back when we were in Canada last 2 years. Although it was just a 1day trip but it was indeed a fun n memorable one 'coz me n my sis really basically sapu-ed quite alot of stuff there! We called it a shopping trip for the itinerary includes a stop to Seattle's biggest factory outlet and their duty free mall. Our first stop once we passed the immigration was to the factory outlet. The tour guide only gave us 1 and a half hour to shop there (included lunch)!! Honestly it was NOT enough!! Me and my sis decided to skip lunch (time is precious!!) and used it fully on shopping. We even marked our shopping route in the map given to us earlier so we can save more time in finding the shops blindly. Imagine how semangat we were at that time.
BUT... but but but but but...! Something happened in the middle of our shopping craze... WE GOT LOST!! Or to be exact: me and my sister got separated!! and she forgot to bring her phone out and i couldn't reach her! I spent at least half an hour searching for her.. but in the end when i realised the time running out and i'll not be able to do any shopping if i continue waiting like that, i thought to myself: "F**k it lar.. she's big enough to find her own way to the bus later, i might as well go shop for my things first maybe i'll bump into her or i'll just meet her back at the bus later" Hence, i continued my hunt while keeping an eye on my lost sis.. i swear i oni went to those shops that i'm interested at and never bother to linger to those non-interested shops; i remembered when i was queuing up to pay for my last shop stop my phone rang, IT WAS MY SIS!! "OI! where are you oh??!! the whole bus is waiting for u leh!!" I was like "huh?? waiting for me?? now what time already oh??" I looked at my watch; FARK! ADI LATE HALF AN HOUR!!! The queue was so damn bladi long and when it was my turn to pay the cashier was like "hie how are you? how's your day? where are you from..? bla bla bla..." in my heart i was like "can u PLEASE hurry up?? i got a bus full of people waiting for me at the entrance..!" Once i was done, i basically ran all the way to the entrance with a handful of shopping bags (yes i don't k about my image anymore because i is super late!) those people must have thought that i'm one of those gone-mad-shopaholic on the run.. *haih* whatever lar as if i'm ever going back there again in at least another 5 years time.. i saw the tour guide waiting anxiously for me (he thought i was lost because my sis lied) but i stupidly went and bocor my own rahsia by saying "sorry i was late the queue was super long" (-.-||) As usual when i got up the bus, those irritated angry glances shone at me brighter than the sunlight.. i was like "woahh.. panas!" macam slumber i just put on my shades trying to avoid eye contacts, quickly sat down, and turned to my sis so excitedly telling her what i bought XD
The tour guide brought us to a few other tourist spots including the Seattle's Space Needle Centre. Upon reaching there, i went to the tour guide n told him that me and my sis are not going in because we want to continue
The chauffeur treated us very nice because he thinks it was very brave of us to travel by ourselves.. nah this is what i call service! They don't discriminate or looked down on us because we're just some teenage brats who might not have the ability to tip! Somemore this is a F.O.C service!! No tip needed!!
The next day we visited a few more other tourist spots like the Seattle's Aquaria, Seattle's Argosy Harbor Cruise and The Plane Museum. And i'm gonna skip explaining about what's there to see at those places because it is boring n it does NOT make me that happy. i wan talk about shopping oni i don't k! Our last shopping stop before we head back to Vancouver was the Seattle's Duty Free Shop. I almost went crazy (again) in there because the perfumes are selling at an extremely unbelievable low price! The price for 1 Chanel Mademoiselle here = i can buy 2 there..! I sapu-ed (AGAIN) macam orang giler.. until i never even bother to check properly what i took, for when i reached back my aunty's house in Vancouver only did i realised that i took a Chanel allure body lotion instead of the perfume.. WTF! never mind lar.. can use also (although until now i haven't start using it yet).
