Outfit of The Day – OOTD

Just a simple OOTD post.

Top - Andy Warhol red tee by Uniqlo
Bottom - Grey cropped pants by Padini
Shoes - Black loafers by Tomaz

The red tee of Andy Warhol is one of my favourites, a good buy from Uniqlo. My cropped pants is slightly baggy on the top part and getting skinnier from knees down below.

Nice comfortable loafers from Tomaz, can be worn with or without socks.

CNY Day 3 & OOTD

On CNY Day 3, my sister joined me to go to Sunway Pyramid to meet up with some friends for lunch at Dragon-i.

We just had to snap in front of those big mirrors in front of the lifts, it’s my new obligatory Outfit of the Day (OOTD) post.

Top – Navy blue checks with red borderline flanel check shirt by Uniqlo
Bottom – Chino pants by Padini
Socks – Stripe socks by Uniqlo
Shoes – Red suede loafers by Tomaz

Now, some people thought flanel shirts would be very hot for Malaysian weather. I would say it’s fine if you are 90% to be indoor.

I’m beginning to get the hang of wearing shirts during day time, I mean, besides attending events in the evening and stuff.

Flanel check shirts are making its way back into the fashion trend cycle, more popularly known during the 90′s where most alternative rock bands usually wore them, namely Nirvana, Silverchair, Third Eye Blind, and many others.

CNY Day 2 & OOTD

So it’s CNY Day 2 on 11th February 2013, and with my new obligatory Outfit Of The Day (OOTD) post.

Top – Light purple Oxford shirt by Uniqlo
Bottom – Skinny-fit cropped pants by Padini
Shoes – Red suede loafers by Tomaz

I love my Uniqlo Oxford shirts because it’s not hot even though it’s kinda thick. And like any Oxford should be, it’s easier to take care, wrinkle-wise.

I could never imagined that I would like this cropped pants so much. It’s slightly baggy on the crotch area but it’s skinny-fit on the legs, which I had to get one size bigger of my usual size.

My red loafers are comfortable as ever, nuff said!

Introducing the Yat’s family – my dad, my younger sisters, and my adorable few months old nephew.

This Michelin-kid brings a lot of laughter in the family. Get a kid to brighten up your family, especially on CNYs! :D

CNY Day 1 & Outfit Of The Day (OOTD)

It’s first day of Chinese New Year and it’s always the same thing happened in Kuala Lumpur.

Woke up around noon, went out to the Chinese coffee shop nearby my house for lunch. The shop has never failed open for business every year during CNY from day 1 til 15th.

Being a true KL-ian who have no ‘hometown’ to head back, CNY is just another holiday for me, and probably the same to a lot of other KL-ians as well, apart from receiving angpows.

Anyhow, I think I’ll randomly start this girly stuff called Outfit Of The Day, shortformed OOTD. From what I see, not many guys, or probably very few guys, who would do this.

I guess I will do this just for the sake of showcasing my Uniqlo indulgence. For your information, guys do love shopping, too.

So here’s my first OOTD post.

Uniqlo Malaysia Aftermath With 18 Cash Vouchers @ Fahnrenheit 88, KL

Went to Uniqlo for the third time last Friday and it’s the real shopping session for Daphne and I..

Reached Fahrenheit 88 at slightly after 11am, just to be sure there are sizes available because the shop opens at 11am..I know, kiasu we are but hell with it! :P

Got our 18 cash vouchers validated and off we scrutinized the whole shop for things we wanted..

As predicted, new stocks for every new day..We grabbed all the S-size that we saw on the Mickey T and of course a M-size of anime print for myself..

Got all the somewhat pretty designs and correct sizes, then only we start to filter which one we want and which one we don’t want..

Found the shirt that I want..Daphne found her leggings, and we have enough vouchers to grab some boxers :D

Here’s what we got ourselves..

*Mickey Mouse print Disney Ts*

Three of them are RM29.90..Used RM20 voucher for each so each costs RM9.90..

Two of them are RM24.90..Used RM20 voucher for each so each costs RM4.90..

*Anime print Ts*

Bought two Galaxy Express 999 T and one Inuyasha print..

Original price is RM59.90..
Promo price is RM29.90..

Used RM20 voucher for each..Each T costs RM9.90..The gray one is for me and the other two for Wilson for lending me his vouchers when I went with him..

*Oxford shirt and dry pants*

Oxford shirt is RM99.90..Used a RM50 voucher..Paid RM49.90 for it..

Dry cotton pants, original price is RM99.90..Promo price is RM49.90..Used RM20 voucher for it, paid RM29.90..

Bought another two Men’s Boxers, priced at RM19.95 each..Used RM20 voucher for each..I got two boxers for FREE! :D

Bought 4 Women’s Boxers, priced at RM24.90..Used RM20 voucher for each..Paid RM4.90 for each..

Bought two Women’s Leggings, priced at RM39.90 each..Used RM20 voucher for each, paid RM19.90 for each..

Total damage would be RM208.40, after using 17 RM20 vouchers and one RM50 voucher..

It didn’t use those vouchers, it would be..
(20 x 17) + 50 + 208.4 = 598.4..

Not to mention if those Ts were selling at original price of RM59.90..

So Daphne and I have saved up to RM390 on cash vouchers for our shopping spree~!!!

*18 receipts for using 18 cash vouchers*

Okay I didn’t mean to act cute or anything but the receipts were rolled so I have to use my face to ‘stand’ the receipts..

Yes, Daphne and I have 18 cash vouchers altogether..Worth waiting for not shopping for the past week..

Some might say I’m too much into Uniqlo fever or I’m promoting Uniqlo too much but do bear in mind that I’m spending so much on Uniqlo because the prices are reasonable..

And when I say reasonable is when I have so many cash vouchers..

I wouldn’t pay RM59.90 for an anime print T-shirt..I only paid RM9.90 for it..It’s even cheaper than night market!

And I got 2 boxers for FREE~!!

On a side note, I think my Oxford shirt is quite a steal because I just paid RM49.90 for it..I like it because of its checker-print on the inner sleeves and collar..

And I only paid RM208 for 18 items worth close to RM600..I can only say I’m a smart consumer..Not too extreme, nor want to hard sell on Uniqlo..

Not meant to defend my take on my shopping spree and to offend anyone if they REALLY like Uniqlo, but I don’t like to be tagged as too hard sell on Uniqlo..

Happy welcoming Year End Sales (Y.E.S) everyone :D

Uniqlo Malaysia Cash Voucher Validation @ Fahrenheit 88

The Uniqlo (pronounced as yu-ni-ku-ro) fever has been exciting, thrilling, overwhelming, and some said overrated..

Overrated or not, the marketing strategy has proved its success and people queued up to enter the newly opened first Uniqlo outlet in Malaysia at Fahrenheit 88 (formerly KL Plaza)..

Like it or not, every time a new brand is in KL there’s always a wave of people queuing up for it, be it Uniqlo, Cotton On, Krispy Kreme, or maybe even Coach..This is just Malaysia..

After all, the Flanel Check Shirts are cheaper by 30%-40% (at original price) as compared to Topman‘s check shirts so you can’t be blaming people flocking Uniqlo every now and then..

So you can’t be saying it’s overrated or it’s not worth the queue (I didn’t queue though) or whatever other reasons you have..

Why so? Keep on reading and you’ll know why the queue was humongous over the weekend..

Since it’s opening on 4th of November 2010, the crowd has been awesome, my sis, Daphne and I paid Uniqlo a visit today (Tuesday) at about 3.30pm..

By the way, all photos taken by BlackBerry Torch 9800 :D

The crowd wasn’t as packed from what I see in photos during the weekend but still quite a lot of people, for a weekday that is..

Upon entry, there’s a so-called “Cash Voucher Validation Counter” waiting for you if you are planning to use the vouchers you have won on go-uniqlo.com..

*The voucher validation counter*

Well I’m not sure how the whole voucher thingy works on its opening day (4th Nov) or during the past weekend but THIS is how it works from now..

I believe this counter is to speed up the cash flow at the cashier counter so they don’t have to validate the vouchers one by one..

Print out all of your vouchers to validate everything in one go, no hassle..

How to print out the cash voucher? EVERYTHING~!!!! Continue on!
