Frequent business trips are very stressful. But an occasional trip is quite refreshing to me. 3-4 trips a years is quite tolerable by my standard and I enjoy the quarterly break :wink:

If you window shop in branded boutiques like Lui Wee Tong, be sure to dress well. If not sales staff and other shoppers will stare until you stressed out. :scared:
I feel that local SAs' svc quality has improved leaps and bounds in recent yrs. Particularly worth mentioning are those located at MBS shoppes.

Lui Wee Tong renders excellent svc to aunties and uncles who speak Mandarin. It's not like in the 80s-90s when u really needed to dress up to enter The House of XXX.

Could be due to rise in tourist arrivals from u-know-where, and prevalence of "Mystery Shopper" schemes introduced by STB, SRA or OBA to keep SAs on their toes. :evil:

I rem I wore my glasses, unbranded $7 slippers from Melaka, $10 H&M bag and Casio G-shock to shop in Chanel a couple of times. They even let me use their VIP toilet at level 2 (NAC) and hv my private viewing inside their "VIP shoe lounge" (MBS)!

Most interesting case: I went on a shoe fitting spree at Christian Louboutin a few mths ago in my worn-out Zara flats (i'm not exaggerating! I didn't know I was gg into that boutique tt day). And my nail lacquer was chipped and due for a pedicure. The male SA didn't patronise me but treated me very well by letting me try on their thousand-dollar footwear from the storeroom.

destress for me:

1. time-out overseas
2. retail therapy
3. cafe therapy
4. spa therapy
5. swimming or cycling
6. sleeping
7. meditation
