It’s kinda old town and the buildings are very close to one another and the roads or rather alleys are soooo narrowwww…Had quite a pathetic breakfast (included in the room rate) and set off to take some photos since I still have time to kill before the scheduled bus to the factory outlet The Mall. First stop was the Duomo. Really not as impressive I thought it would have been.
Then I saw this…so familiar geh….
Then it was time to go back to the bus station and in 45 minutes time I arrived here together with a bus load of Asians….
Bought most of my stuff here (except the LV la..), tshirts and clothes for the kids from Armani Jeans, and a tshirt from Burberry plus a Euro 30 flowery shirt for daddy! (Eh from Burberry wor…quite cheap kan?) This place was located in some God forsaken ulu yam place among some houses and mini hills & lakes..quite good views from the bus. I didn’t manage to go to Prada which was further away from this place. Rats! I thought I could catch the direct bus back to Florence but somehow nobody could help direct me to the right bus stop! Finally I just followed a pair of Korean couple and then many others followed and I guessed it was the right bus stop. However, this bus stops at the smaller towns before reaching Florence so it took over an hour!
Was bored so I sms-ed LB, just to let him know that I am surviving so far! Once I reached Florence, I dropped all my shopping in the hotel and off I went exploring the town. Was walking around and then I had to pee and I couldn’t find one freaking public toilet! WTF! There are lots of cafes and bars around but tak-kan I just walk in and ask if I could use the loo meh. I couldn’t even find a McDonalds around…then I saw a department store and I rushed in but to my dismay the toilet is only available in the top floor which was 4 stories above!! Darn..by then my bladder was about to burst and there was of course a “berarrdy” queue la! I must say the toilet was pretty dirty but I have no “berarrdy” choice rite??? Blek..
After the toilet break I went to Miu Miu and drooled all over the bags and shoes. They were not on sale yet (the sale started only the week after I left la!) Then I found the store….LV of course…it was close to closing time but what the heck, went in of course. It was of course still very crowded with mainly Asians, abuden??
After that it was getting late and I started walking back to the hotel. LB sms-ed me to tell me give shopping a break and get myself a gelati instead, which I did! It was too sweet for me…but refreshing nevertheless. Stopped over at a cyber cafe and replied some emails. Surprising the cost was quite reasonable for 1 hour of internet usage.
The day ended with another cup noodle plus my dried chicken meat again…yes Amah spends $$ on designer goods but can’t pay for a descent dinner…no lar..I hate eating alone, more so in a foreign land…mai eat myself in the room lor….
