    i've visited midnite sale only once and i don't want to visit one again. It's because the traffics are crazy and the discount item didn't really worth it. i ended up buying things i didn't really need just because i feel i have to buy something after the struggle i've done to attend the midnite sale. in my opinion, it's better to wait your fav shop to be on sale so you can buy what u really need and what u really want to buy. ^^

    btw, congrats for ur very first giveaway! really hope i can win this giveaway ^^
    and ganbatte for ur thesis!!

  2. Congrats to your first giveaway cutie! : )
    So lovely things!

    ❤ ✿ NEW POST ✿ ❤

  3. I love the artist's artworks, they are amazing ;___;

    I'm joining the giveaway! I have followed your GFC since days ago and I have linked your giveaway on my blog ( I have an Instagram account but I'm not really a fan of it :[

    My email is cottonkuma(at)gmail(dot)com > ( ) to avoid spam.

    I have gone to midnight sale shopping probably twice, both coincidentally. I stayed with my mom in a coffee shop until late and there was midnight sale going on. I don't go to midnight sale events intentionally because--I don't know, I don't want to get an item just because it's on sale, I would like to buy things I really want, not just because they are discounted.

    There is also a question to ask to self whenever you have the urge to shop a lot, 'if the item is at its full price, will you buy it?' I think I subconsciously go with this saying.

    Sometimes malls in Indonesia could be really absurd. Or rather, the people. There was this time at Pacific Place when the roof broke, shattered glasses or flood (I can't remember) inside the mall yet because there was sale going on, people didn't even bother, still went mad with the sale.

    To be honest, I don't like how malls have to appear 'luxurious' and eat up all the space here. Ok why am I ranting here.

    Thank you for hosting the giveaway, Mitch!

    I've never try midnight shopping bcs my mom didn't allow me when I asked her out. I think most of people who buy at midnight are employees or worker because they've only had time after their works done. And I think midnight shopping have some pro and contra. Some people may think that midnight shopping will waste your money and your time. But, I disagree because if shopping become a hobby (not always shopping, can also windows shopping or search for ideas to make design), it will be fun and refreshing our body and soul. thankyou! wish me luckk

  13. really cute giveaway!! <33333 love the notebook! <3

    a midnight sale? and what do I think about it?
    - i simply think it is a great offer to individuals who adore the latest products they could reach their hands onto. However, I have never participated in one. But I'm sure it will be loads of fun having to be able to experience the crowded atmosphere of people having similar interest- shopping. It is a great way to refresh your mind too after a hard tiring day out there.

  18. Hi Mitch,
    I think midnight shopping is one of the most effective marketing strategies in Indonesia (Indonesian people are one of the most consumptive customers in the world, imo ^^) Aku pernah beberapa kali dateng ke midnight sale. Menurutku sale seperti apapun tetep balik lagi ke kita, gimana mengerem dan mem-filter hasrat belanja untuk beli barang yang bener-bener kita butuhin, nggak hanya semata-mata karena sale terus jadi gelap mata :)

    Tell me your opinion about midnight shopping a.k.a midnight sale phenomenon in Indonesian malls. Have you ever gone to a midnight shopping event? If so, how many times?

    Hmm.. Kayanya pernah ikutan sekali tapi itu juga di hypermart belinya sabun, cemilan, sama roti soalnya harganya jadi murah banget buat nyetok di rumah. Hahahaha.. Menurut gue sik seru ada acara kaya gitu soalnya jadi bisa dapet barang kaya murah bangeeetttttt (dibanding harga aslinya) cuma yang bikin males yah itu jejel-jejelan dan ngantrinya puanjaanngg.. Mana kalo udah saingannya ama ibu-ibu udah susah dah -_-
    But let me tell you a secret how to; dateng lebih pagi 2/3 jam sebelom midnight sale dimulai, cari toko yang ikutan promo midnight sale, pilih barang yang di pengenin, terus keep di kasir! Nanti begitu jamnya mulai langsung ke kasir dan bayar pake harga sale! Hahahaa. Pinter kan?? Temen gue sih yang suka pake cara ini.. Tapi pastikan kalo si kasirnya juga mau kerja sama dan ngebolehin. Hehehe.

    Wsh me luck wish me luck!

    I have never been to midnight shopping/sale, since I am still under 18. My mom also don't like going anywhere midnight. We prefer sleep! :p
    But I think it is good for proofing that you are the real shopaholic xD
    Since you will sacrifice more times, energies and want to do 'more' than the others, giving up their precious times to sleep, but to shop because of the sale before other people grab the stuffs on sale xD
    Thats my sincere and honest thought of it :D
    Hope will be lucky this time :D
    Thank you ^^

    I never go to midnight shopping cause I live in small city. Better sleep in the midnight for me rather than go to shopping. Malls always there, they never moved, but somehow sleep time is hard to find, especially the quality ones.

    Don't forget to join Hanake Label Giveaway on my blog, click here. Win the prize with total value IDR 450.000.

  30. I'm IN!!
    Followed you on Instagram (My ID: MsPherdita), put your banner on my blog, and followed your blog (GFC : Pherdita) ^_^

    My opinion :
    I never really interested in midnight shopping because I don't think I could control myself on that sale, you know. People tend to buy things they don't really need whenever they see the "SALE" banner, so yeah, I don't want to regret my impulsive buying and definitely do not want to be the victim of business marketing for being a consumptive buyer.

    That's my short opinion about the midnight sale on malls. Hopefully I'll win :D

  31. too bad I can't join )))): but good luck to you all!!
