Our Second Stop - Turku, Finland

Bidded goodbye to Germany happily (you will know why shortly) as we headed towards Finland.

I was expecting Turku to be a quiet and peaceful city; well somehow boring in my thoughts and was prepared to stay in the hotel room for full 3 days as hubby goes for his work meeting. To my surprise, the place we are staying - Sokos Hotel Hamburger Börs is surrounded by many many shops and departmental stores *Great!*

About Germany: We shopped mainly during our stay at Frankfurt city, focusing at Goethestrasse aka Frankfurt’s ‘Fifth Avenue’. A street where women will love, i think :) You can find almost all the brands you want there, from LV to Pradra to Chanel, Miu Miu, Hermes, Cartier, Tiffany etc

And yes yes, i left Germany happily cos hubby got me a Chanel bag there! Hee hee... At times i do ask myself, "Why do women love bags, especially those that cost so much?" Some call it materialistic, some say its silly but who cares as long as you like them. Guys do love expensive cars and watches too, don't they? :) Simply unexplainable.

Any way, back to my first Chanel purchase experience. When we went into the store, the SA told us there was only one classic flap jumbo in store, which is in black. I also spotted the patent black classic flap but it is only available in mid size. Contemplating if i should buy or wait? Size vs Material? For the high price, i couldn't really make up my mind as my ideal choice would be a metallic or patent in jumbo size. So a little disappointed, we stepped out of the store, continued our shopping and went for a cup of Nespresso coffee along the street.

I guessed during the coffee session, hubby knew my mind was all about the bag (or probably written all over my face, hee hee). He then said, "You like the bag right? If you can decide and really like it, then buy it." So we finished up our coffee (quickly, hee) and he brought me back to the store. What can i say but to give a BIG BIG hug & kiss for my dearest G ~ Thanks dearie for the bag & belt. Hee, yups got a LV belt too. Okie no more gifts for the year *zipped*

Well i'm not the only one shopping, hubby got quite a lot of stuffs too and 2 gifts from me :D
He commented, "Wow, good exchange ya... 1 cufflink and jacket in exchange for a belt and bag!" Geezz...
