My Weekend ‘Citi’ Diary

Everybody needs a good credit card – one that suits your needs and ‘works’ for you. This weekend, I took my Citibank clear card out everywhere and I charged everything to it. It was so convenient to go ‘money-less’!… plus it earned me lots of rewards points. Shopping vouchers here I come again! 🙂
And here’s my weekend ‘citi’ diary:

First up, I cut my hair! Finally! It’s a lot shorter now (and browner), and so much easier to manage. I’m thinking of even shorter still. Probably next time!

This is my hair stylist, Dexter (2nd from left). He’s awesome and he’s located at Next salon, Ion. I never have to worry about how my hair will turn out when I go to him.

… Then I went to Ms Selfridge and used my Citi Rewards voucher to get a lovely dress for the night. Love it that I didn’t have to pay for my dress!

Zipped in to Starbucks for my caffeine fix before I went home to change for the night.

Spending at Starbucks: $7 = 7 Citi$$

This is the dress that I got! Wore it to meet the girlies at Butter Factory that night. We had an awesome night, and one too many drinks. *hic* Heehee.

Bumped into Jerilyn! ~ from when we were filming R.E.M. 🙂

Spending for the night: $172 = 172 Citi$$

On Saturday, I went with my sister to watch ‘Voyage De La Vie’ at RWS.

Absolutely love how these shows ‘transport’ you to another fantasy world for a couple of hours.

And then mumsy came and join us for dinner at Hard Rock Cafe.

The interiors of Hard Rock Cafe. (The mac & cheese was really really good.)

I heard that the popcorn sold outside Universal Studios was to die for. I had to try!

We shopped around at the Hershey’s store after. (Garrett popcorn! The caramel flavoured is super yummy.)

And fooled around in the store. Haha. Lots of kisses for the Hershey’s kisses!

I love this shot of mumsy. She was giggly and shy! (the rareness.)

Such huge chocolate bars!!

And an even larger one!! It was heavy!!

The Hershey’s store.

Oh my gosh. Look! It’s Reese’s!! I love Reese’s!!

We got really excited and couldn’t wait to eat it. Mmm…Mmm…

The next day, bright and early, I met the girlies for brunch at ‘Wild Honey’, Mandarin Gallery.

We waited almost an hour for our table, but their breakfast sets are worth the wait.

And I got my ‘I luv NYC’ set with my Citi card!

Went to watch the movie ‘Inception’ in the later part of Sunday. It was awesome!! Director Christopher Nolan is amazing. The movie got me at the edge of my seat the whole time. It’s been a long while since I’ve watched something this good!!

Movie tickets: $22 = 22 Citi$$

And I had to end the weekend with a couple of books to last me through the week.

I love bookstores. I can spend all day browsing.

2 novels and my must-have fashion magazine fix for the month.

Spending at Kinokuniya: $41 = 41 Citi$$

I had the loveliest weekend…

All thanks to my Citibank Clear Platinum card! Have you gotten yours yet?

  5. Hey myprincessgem and Alicia! I'm having on a denim playsuit actually, it's not a dress. And I got it from Zara.
