Last Eid Shopping
I, as usual, enjoyed the last Eid shopping as I visited different markets and bought dresses for myself and the other members of my family. Firstly, I together with my mother went to New Market and bought two attractive dresses for my younger sister. Then we went to Gowsia Market, visited three shops, and bought a very nice dress for my mother. After that, we went to Elephant Road, visited several shops, and bought two Punjabis — one for me and one for my father. Besides, we bought a fine dress for our maid servant. Finally, we went to Eastern Plaza, and purchased some cosmetics for my mother, sister and the maid servant. The last Eid shopping was really a happy experience to me.
