Here's a funny news i found on The Star today..
A WOMAN risked her life merely to save three branded handbags when fire gutted her home in Hong Kong, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.
The woman was asleep in her apartment in Sham Shui Po when she was awakened by thick smoke in her bedroom.
She managed to overcome her shock and look for a way to escape, but not before dashing into another room and “rescuing” three Louis Vuitton and Gucci handbags that belonged to her and her daughter.
She then climbed out a window and climbed down the building with a fire- man's ladder, carrying the handbags with her.
The paper said the woman decided to save the handbags because she and her daughter cherished them so much.
Psychology experts said that it is human nature to save valuable goods. “But this instinct is usually more common in women as they treasure valuable goods more than men.”
It might sound funny and downright crazy. i laughed when i read this.
But then i put myself in her shoes.. What would i do if my house is on fire and i only have three designer bags that i bought using my hard-earned cash? What if the bag is my MJ's Mini Stam in Green that i love so much?
Those who know me knows that it's hard for me to buy those expensive bags. Sebab tu la sampai sekarang saya tiada satu pon designer bag. Yup. Saya tiada satu pon designer handbag!
So.. i would definitely go to the other room and grab my designer bags.
As crazy as it sounds, i will.
