It’s been quite a few weeks since they’ve put up the Christmas decorations on Orchard Road, but it’s only just hit me a couple of days ago when I was shopping at the supermarket.
The headache-inducing Christmas songs were playing and supermarket staff were stocking shelves with things they hope people will pay a premium for just cos it’s Christmas.
Whatever your recession-busting Christmas shopping strategy is, you’d be doing well to avoid buying a coffee machine from Krups – just check out the comments that keep coming in over the months in this blog post. Ours went on the blink again a couple of months ago and we haven’t had an espresso at home since.
Might as well go and buy a felt pebble.
