Shop until you drop
It's interesting to see your description of the new shopping centre Alex and for you a very innovative concept. These kinds of centres are very convenient with everything under one roof and protection from the weather too. Sometimes they can seem just too big and generally they offer a generic range of high street shops. They are often criticised as they may lead to the demise of traditional shops who are unable to compete with the prices that large volume stores can offer.
I'm sitting on the fence on this one as I appreciate the convenience that these large centres offer but also I'm worried that small specialist shops will be lost. I imagine that alot of people share my views. One thing is for sure these large centres are here to stay.
In Kuala Lumpur there are quite a number of upscale shopping centres and they are very very popular. With very good airconditioning they do make shopping a lot easier in this very hot climate. They are in themselves a kind of leisure activity for families!
Alex, I laughed out aloud at your opening description of the public holiday situation. You are a witty writer! I'm always pleased to start my day with a laugh, it's good for me!
