Yes, Maaaa’aaam…

Today we went to Greenhills Mall.  This mall is the type of place where you can haggle for a better price.  There are many stands that sell jewelry (pearls, coral, jade, crystal), knock off handbags, clothes, and souvenirs.  Each vendor greets you with, “yes, maaaaa’aaam” as you look at their items.  We all went straight for the jewelry as we wanted some real pearls.  After learning about the different types and sizes, I finally decided on a strand of black freshwater pearls that I liked.   I chose a clasp and watched the young lady strand and knot the pearls to make my necklace.  Prince was with us and made sure we got a low price and even got them to throw in some earrings for free.  I ended up going back and getting some more irregular long strands, too.  Check it out.
