The conversation started when I told y(a)ppie that I was doing a survey

*this is true at the time of posting, list made based on memory and not actual physical count*

Noticed, how I did not number the list at all. So so so shameless! But all is justify-able for the very fact that I got it at a deal. Plus all the agonizing wait and the collection did its own accumulation throughout 5 years or more. I am quite the frugal one because I never paid RM700 to ship a bag halfway across the globe. My condolences to your lost. I am can be a shopaholic, but never impulsive.
