Before I start my story, to those who dunno Malay, ‘mahal’ means expensive. 🙂
I bought the above, very nice photo album. it’s not the conventional book that you get in the shops. I spotted this when I was in Korea window shopping. It’s a box with pieces of paper which you can slide your picture it. The paper allows the owner to pen down some words about the pic. I thought it was very cute and worth investing in. So I bought it!
First thing I did when I got home was to check when was the last time I actually choose the pics I have taken to be developed and keep as memories… 2003!! Ok.. definitely have taken alot of pics since then. Since I’ve only been travelling so extensively this past 18 months I decided to choose pics taken last year and this year. To add to my constraint I can only choose the best 150 pics cos that’s the amount of paper that came with the box. I think I spent about 2 days trying to cut down on the total.
Once I’ve done that, I happily went to the photo shop to develop it. To my horror, one piece cost RM 0.50!! So a total of 150 photos cost me RM81!!!! why so mahal one??? Has anyone ever tell you keeping things for memories is so expensive?
Okla.. since I dont do this so often… I let it go la. Now need to sit down and actually put it all together…
