beijing part 4
We decided to devote our final days in Beijing for shopping, shopping and shopping!
Well, this is when I witnessed how my mom’s eyes gone sparkling... :->

All this while she’s the one who’d complaint about anything and sorts but now suddenly she became wonder woman! Huh… ladies out there! Please admit, my mom has been hypnotised by the power of shopping…

But actually I did find shopping in Beijing, interesting. The idea was you bargained for a price as low as you could get and later settled with a more tolerable price. This is when/where salesgirls played all the tactics in order to get your attention and best prices.

“What’s your best price?!” “Joking Price!!” “Come on, little bit higher!” “No, no, no... you crazy!!” “OK, OK, Give me your final price” can be overheard all through the stalls and marketplace. It’s kind of an art...an art of trading. heh. ;-)
And obviously there would be only one winner either you or the adorable salesgirl...
