Cheap versus Expensive

I am not a person who pays too much attention to branded goods....but somehow I do look more into the "quality" parts...as I do believe in 'value for money' too. Having said so...this does not mean that all my things are branded ok...as for my clothings and shoes...if they do look good and comfortable to wear...with affordable and reasonable prices..I would certainly go for them!

Ok let's go straight to the point here...what's up with the crayons anyway?
Our Habibati persuaded me to buy her the above set of crayons at only 70cents here *very cheap* and without hesitation I agreed. The packing was very attractive especially to the growing kid like her. She just couldn't wait to try them on her colouring book. Then guess what happen *of course as expected* ....not only they were very hard but had made the colouring messy!
See...see.....the above picture has proven what I have said. The one on the left side verses the quality STAEDTLER crayon which gives a smoother and brighter outcome (^;*)
Habibati was a bit sad with 'her new set of crayons' and I had to coax her slowly and asked her to use the ones that she has had previously...and the 'new set of crayons' had gone into the bin!

Mama Mia said...

oh,the quality of the new crayon is so poor. The only consolation is its cheap price..tak la sakit hati sangat kalau dibuang. :)
