For the first time in my 22 years’ life, I went to a Mall ALONE. Maybe it is not a big deal for most people, but it is for me.
I don’t know why, I can do it when I am in Bandung but when I am in Bekasi it just feels weird to going out alone. My mom would react “why did you go out alone?” too. In that moment I really feel like I have no friends
I just wanna have a me time, really. And I want to spend my discount vouchers which expired that day.
When I arrived, I went to the book store. There are novels which I stupidly bought the first and third books. I want to buy the second book but wasn’t able to find it there. I decided to move to another mall across this mall. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find it here too.
But I found something more interesting. it was GUNDALA comic book : movie edition! Oh my gosh, it was so good! I shivered while reading that comic book. AND it answered every questions that I have when I watched the movie. YOU MUST READ THE COMIC IF YOU LOVE GUNDALA!
After spending so much time in the book store, I went to buy a drink. I tried Gulu-Gulu after craving it for some time. I’m not a big fan of sweets, but once in a while I crave it haha. I tried the Cheese Red Velvet for free~ (big thanks to Dana’s 100% cashback) and it was good! The red velvet wasn’t too sweet, plus the cheese was salty which made the drink less sweet. Surprisingly, it was a nice combi. When you drink it together, they’re complement each other! Now, I crave this drink again
Then, I wandered and decided to do window shopping. I went to a drugstore and found out that a brand did a free skin check. I want to try but it was so crowded. When I walked to make up section, I found a bb cushion that I really want to buy was getting discount (almost 50%). Excited, I called the BA and asked for it but she said that I should go straight to the cashier to buy it. There was a pretty long line in the cashier. I wait patiently in the line for 15 minutes(ish). You know what, when I said what I want to buy, the cashier, straightforwardly said, “It’s out of stock, miss.”
Oh. My. God. I’m. Speechless. HOW COULD THE BA NOT TELLING ME THAT IT WAS OUT OF STOCK ?! I waste my time lining in the cashier for nothing.. I would just line in the free skin check if I know.. Thanks to Gulu-Gulu, I can suppressed my annoyance.
After wandered in the mall for I-don’t-know-how-long, I chose to going back. The sun had already set and I didn’t want to stuck in traffics. I ordered an online transportation and wait for awhile. In a traffic, the driver suddenly asked me “You go to the mall alone, miss?”. Is he a shaman?, I thought. That was so random but straight to the point. It just, I feel sad when he asked me like that. It was Sunday night and I went alone to a mall where you can easily found couples.
Actually, my very first reason for going out alone is to go to the cinema. But, suddenly I lost interest. The movie(s) which I want to watch was either too lovey-dovey or too jump-scaring to watch alone. (I hate jump scare )
So, that’s it! It was my first experience of going to mall alone in Bekasi~ Will I go to mall alone again? I don’t know. It was so good that I was able to have a me-time, but honestly, I need someone to talk to (especially when I excited) haha.
