But guess what, I had a temporary replacement till the stock comes in.
I went into an old stationery shop (one of my favourite things to spend the hours at) and went home with another Winsor & Newton Water Colours set of 12, CN . All the brands they had, I have used and tested out before except for this. And this was way cheaper than the one that I was waiting for. The shop auntie saw me inspecting her art products and called me out (I was all alone in the shop).
Auntie: Ah mei, what are you looking for?
So, I pointed out all the brands of paints that her shop had. I was quite surprised that she listened attentively as I shared my experience with each one of them.
Auntie: I thought paint is just paint what. Aiyo, so confusing.
I laughed watching her scratched her head in confusion. When I was about to pay (together with a palette, one of the colour is missing which she agreed to lower the price), she suddenly deducted the price off again from the total sum.
Me: Auntie, why?
Auntie: The product so old already sit there. Lucky you come and buy. I happy already. Thank you ah, Ah mei.
I guess we both got what we wanted.
