Market in our place are usually done along the streets and roads. The transient vendors display their goods in one or more makeshift tables. There, the people try to select there prefered things to buy. Well, it took us 10 to 15 minutes to choose the right size and designs, well I mean my wife's sleepers. She chooses according to the design, price and size. I was just standing there watching her. Whew, its a tough one choosing right size sleepers for her.

I have not been out shopping with my guy yet. I know so far he always sends me inside the stores. I would prefer to go alone for as long as possible.

That's always my problem everytime I accompany my wife going shopping or to the open market. She takes so much time before she buys a stuff or anything she wants or needs to purchase. She neverminds the time as long as she gets what she wants in her bargain price.

when buying slippers for kids, i usually buy a size bigger than the actual. the size of my feet is just the normal size of an adult 5 feet 3 inches female, so i guess i can get a pair of slippers anywhere.

@ilocosboy yes because we women have to find the most durable, thick sole, good strap of the slipper, etcetera etcetera. hahaha! 'kaya nga matipid ang babae'.

That photo made me think back of a trip to Malaysia, not too far from the border of Singapore. We saw something similar. For a souvenir, I bought a pair of simple handmade sandals. Still have the pair somewhere. (I think I was ripped off a bit, but we were on holiday!)

It should be the easiest, but when lots of it are there, the rummage of the perfect sleeper is a tough job.

Women are such great shoppers, which works out sometimes, since some men don't like shopping that much. I hope she found what she needed.
