Ikea shopping

This is my favourite store!!!! IKEA... I dont know but I am so fascinated with IKEA stuff... When I was still living in the Philippines , my sister from Saudi brought  home Ikea catalouge and I browsed through it ,, since then I adore this shop... I like  the way Ikea sets up its showroom.. It was during those days that I would imagine and hope that one day I can go shopping at IKEA...

When I came here in Australia , I found out that there is IKEA store here so, he took me to  Blacktown area ,,and Ireally love it,,  it moved to a bigger place in Homebush and I"ve been there several times..

Christmas season and it was packed that is why we didn't linger long... My hubby always say walk briskly!!!! but hey....... I want to look around,,,, touch the items and just take it all in....   

But no........     Men and shopping ..... they're not compatible!!!!!! My hubby is so impatient with shopping!!! although I love taking him with me,, because he pays for it,,, he always say if you find something just grab it!!!
Sometimes its good sometimes not....... I have  a habit of examining the item first ,, then go around and look for something else and come back if I really decided to get it.... Thats my way!!!  
But hey,,,, I'm getting fast now,, specially with small kids, you also have to think of the kids who are bored walking around and following mom.. ....
Thats why when I go shopping at my local mall when the kids are in preschool   then......
I SHOP ALONE!!!!!!!!!

How I wish we have IKEA here in the Philippines. I have been reading about IKEA in some of my HOME magazines. And I agree with you. It is easier to shop alone. You get to choose wisely without rushing. Looks like you had a grand time.

I love Ikea as well :) Especially they've got this play room for kids, where kids get to play an hour with supervision from the staff while mom goes shop around :)

Wow... Christmas time na talaga! Sabi nila may Ikea store na rin dito sa Pinas pero di ko pa nakikita. Hay naku, ganyan talaga mga guys, super impatient sa shopping. Kaya ang dad ko dati, he would allow us to shop tapos magkikita na lang sa isang lugar at a particular time kasi kung sasama siya sa amin, mainis lang siya. =)

My weekend snapshots are here and here should you want to check it, too.
