Today i went shopping with my grandmother. We found what she wanted in this particular shop after hunting around the whole of Amcorp Mall. We spent a dreadful-for-me-but-happy-for-grandma 45 minutes in this shop because the shop owner and her friends were so friendly and my grandmother seemed to have clicked with them very well.

When i go around shopping all that goes on in the shop is something like…

can i help u miss?
oh i’m just browsing around, i’ll let you know when i need your service.
ok.
*found stuff i wanted to try*
I’ll try this on.

HOWEVER, when she shops….this happens
