So anyway, since the place we're headed to is going to be more than comfortably cool this time of year (no snow though T_T), The Husband decided to get me some thermal wear. (I don't have any thermal wear, have never had any, and have never even worn any before in my life. @_@) We visited Travel4All, Subang Parade and he picked out this wool type for me:
100% Merino Extra Fine Wool Long Sleeved Thermal Wear And Pants.
I look like a dungu in it.
Total geek outfit. Haha.
And I can't get over the fact that people wear thermal wear daily UNDER their clothes without washing them throughout the trip. @_@ Can anybody say yuck?? That's like wearing the same clothes for a whole holiday! Yerrr... Disgusting, man.
So, I've decided to break the rules and at least put on some basic spaghetti straps under this thermal wear, and I plan to change those spaghetti straps daily. :-/ At least I'll be relatively clean throughout the holiday AND I'll be protected from any itching the wool may cause when my body heats up under all the layering.
But I totally get why people only get one pair of thermal wear and wear only that one pair throughout the duration of their holidays. These unfashionable, itchy, inner wear things cost a bomb! @_@
RM159.20 each after discount, which totals up to RM318.40 for a set.
But I guess that's the price you have to pay
to keep warm and toasty from neck to ankle. :-/
