After a hectic week of work and filming for The Rookie, I felt that I was in dire need of a workout… A simple workout that was fun and at the same time not too intensive. At the same time, my girl friend was running a stall at the *SCAPE flea market next to Cathay Cineleisure. As such, I decided to bring my uWalk along in my flea-hunting venture!
Flea-hunting is not shopping, by the way. It is far crazier than that. You’ll have to battle through throngs of bargain-hungry girls, scavenging through racks and racks of clothing, accessories and shoes, and propositioning prices with stall owners. In short, serious flea-hunting is not for the weak-hearted. It requires proper preparation.
My checklist for the flea market:
– Flat sandals? Check!
– Shorts and a tank top? Check!
– An awesome partner who is equally as competent in flea-hunting? Check!
– Cash? (No credit cards accepted here please!) Check!
– And of course, my trusty purple uWalk to monitor my little ‘fitness regime’ for the day? Check!
And so it began…
Look at the throng of people! Large crowds + humid weather = A very sticky situation, literally.
This is my friend Natasha. She co-owned a stall at the flea. Her stall was very cutely named “For the Heck of It”, which was the very purpose for setting up a stall.
Check out the crowd and clothes racks!
I also saw some really interesting stuff that were on sale…
