I just realized I haven’t shared this bargain I got during my last trip to China. And yes, it’s pretty obvious with my title- boots it is! πŸ™‚ I don’t know what’s up with me that I get hook with buying boots whenever I travel. Oh, and I’m talking about those long boots. The bad thing about it is I can’t really wear them when I’m back home. I once tried, but I just couldn’t stand the heat! I may sometimes go for fashion over comfort, but when it has something to do with heat, forget it! This is why I only get to wear my boots when I travel to cold places. What’s worse, I can only afford to bring 2 pairs at the most. How sad! πŸ™ Maybe I should start thinking of migrating to other countries where there is winter! LOL! πŸ˜€

Anyway, the boots I bought is what I have been looking for ages now. Well, it’s everywhere, but I’m price conscious when it comes to these long boots. I don’t want to spend a lot on something I can barely use so my hunt for such inexpensive boots took me like forever. Haha! Also, I have another requirement for long boots. It has to be flats. No heels. Okay, if there is, maybe an inch is fine. Why? Because as I said earlier, I only get to wear them when I travel and that surely entails a lot of walking! Maybe if I live in a cold area, I would love to buy long boots with killer heels as well so I can wear them for dinner dates and night outs. πŸ™‚ Oh well, again, there’s no winter here in Manila so I’m just bound to get flats for travels. πŸ™

Anyway, enough of the talkies. Here’s what I’ve scored! πŸ™‚


It’s a thigh high boots! πŸ™‚


What I love about it is I can also make it slouchy by just pulling it down. I can actually adjust it to whatever height I want- knee high, thigh high, mid-calf, or even short boots. I can just slouch it or fold it in whatever way I want. πŸ™‚


And my last requirement? It has an inch heels only, perfect for my travels! πŸ™‚ Tokyo, here I come! Hehe! πŸ™‚


Now the best part, how much did I get it?! Can you guess???


It’s only CNY 120, which is around USD 18! πŸ˜€ I have to give credit to my bargaining skills! Haha! πŸ˜€ Can you guess the first price given to me?! CNY 600 (USD 89)! I actually bought it in a known shopping mall for foreigners, making all the shops very abusive. πŸ™ The last time I went there with my family, I remember my mom bargaining for 50% off. Now, I thought of asking for 80% off for everything I bought in there. Haha! πŸ˜€ You just don’t know how hard it is to ask for a discount in there! They literally get mad and shout at you. Well, I’ve conquered my fear! LOL! I stick to the first price I ask and leave the store if they don’t want to give it. They’ll chase you anyway and end up agreeing with your price. Oh, but this boots is special! I had a very loooong discussion with the SA. I would admit, she gave me a hard time! I sticked to the first price I uttered, which is CNY 120, until the very end. It even went to the point wherein she was grabbing my arms, pleading me to get the boots at her price, which lowered until CNY 200. Ooooh, thankfully I had my jacket on that I didn’t feel much of the pressure of her hands. She was literally squeezing me hard. She was doing that while shouting at me, even if I was in another store already! Can you imagine that?! Scandal indeed! Haha! But yours truly won the “battle”! Haha! πŸ˜€ I ended up not being so friendly at her because of what she was doing to me. I told her in a not-so-nice tone that I would only get it for CNY 120, that’s it! She gave up and gave it to me! Yay! Haha! πŸ™‚

Well, to make her feel a little better, I got 2 pairs! LOL! I was so happy with the price and of course, with my long lost boots! πŸ™‚ I got another pair in gray! πŸ™‚ YAY! πŸ˜€
