OT a bit here.

Talking about umbrella, any good brand to recommend?
I always carry an umbrella with me but I can still feel the heat on my face when under the sun

Ha ha... outsider asks...insider answers :wink:

I'm into Japanese Aurora umbrella too.
Love their ultra light ones, only bad thing is if it gets too windy then umbrella may 'flip'.

gosh :oops: ; I never buy an umbrella before in my life. I always get it for free.
I have also never buy gift wrappers before - I always take them from shopping centers whenever I buy something or I dont wrap the gift; just leave it in the paper bag.
I think it is a waste of $$ to pay for all these (what else can I think of!!)
DO I consider Cheapskate??

i used to use the ntuc umbrella but it got spoiled easily so i decided to invest a bit more to get ultra light and ultra small ones whenever i go to japan. the brand tt i like is called waterfront. i was using a flat one but now tt i hv to squeeze my things into a diaper bag, i hv changed to a very slim cylindrical one. it's only just nice for one person, and u can't be very fat, or carry too many things but it'll do for now.

Agree with joyce. I got my free umbrellas mostly from shopping malls. Usually like IMM, centrepoint, spend 120 get one free umbrella and these are usually of reasonable quality.

I do buy the foldable ones , found the one from Esprit not bad.
