We shopped on a Saturday!

Last week, my family and I was shopping for some CNY stuffs. We were in the afternoon at the Curve and then later at Ikano’s. At night we ventured out again after not fulfilling the shopping list to Sunway Pyramid. Boy, I must say that shopping requires more energy than one got to expect.

While at the Curve, we shopped at Metrojaya and bought some stuffs and then headed to buy other things at Ikano. It was the evening outing to Sunway Pyramid’s Jusco that really reminded us that it was a Saturday. I bought a pair of shoes for Gabriel and when i finished paying the cashier, I was waiting for the plastic bag to be given to me. That lady cashier smiled and say, “Sir, its Saturday today and in Selangor, all Saturdays are plastic bags free”. *duh*.

Am I supposed to be walking around the mall with the shoe box? Obviously I wasn’t prepared at all, but hey, we were given bags the whole day. So is this by preference of the retailers or is it mandatory that we all support the “no plastic bag day”? I would very much support’ only if I really come prepared with my own bags. I do have some, but its all kept nicely at home. Guess after this incident, I would have to keep some of these bags in our cars. And to all retailers who have given bags on Saturday…. please consider fully supporting this good cause and over time it will make a difference. Last Saturday I paid 20 cents for that Jusco bag and hopefully I’ll remember to bring mine the next time.
