Antony is cheap!

The EOFYS (End of Financial Year Sale or mid-year sale) is about to end, and I finally find some time today to do my very important retail therapy.

Laurent and I visited Westfield Parramatta this afternoon. Without a doubt, we visited both David Jones and Myer department stores. And for the record, I hardly bought anything home. Only one strawberry green tea, one rose tea and one wooden tray from Japan City for a grand total of $26.40 I spent (excluding a cheap lunch there). Everything I bought was under heavily discount, of course.

While window shopping at David Jones and Myer, Laurent called me "cheap" for at least three times. As he said that I can't afford this, I can't afford that. So here Don has it, Antony is cheap.

The last major shopping for me was last year's Boxing Day sale, and not counting the poor man's tablet (iPad), I haven't bought anything major in between.

I am usually good at figuring out things to buy at the shopping centres, but for some reason, I haven't spent much at all this time.

(to Don: Antony is poor.)

Maybe by Laurent's standards you are cheap. By my standards, it's $26.40 that you wouldn't have spent had you not purposely gone looking for things to buy, which obviously cannot qualify as cheap.

The tea leaves are consumable items. I would get them sooner or later, and I, as a bargain hunter, used the great bargain opportunity to get them at elf price.
And I've been thinking about getting the wooden tray but the price was too high. And again, I didn't let the bargain slip away. In conclusion, it was a saving, and I am cheap.

How much was "elf price" as opposed to "half price"?
I know you are an inscrutable little Oriental, but hardly an elf!!

Well, I can't type, it was meant to be "half" price.

There were only four (4) letters in the word. One of which you left out altogether, and the other just got plain wrong!

Well, Antony does not speak english. Simple as that!
