Virgo gave me the task of finding a gift for SQB’s birthday. Yes, I used ‘task’ purposely. In any other country I’d love to spend a few hours window shopping for presents, especially for a man, it’s so fascinating to look at men’s gadgets, clothes and shoes. My brothers have often been the happy recipients of my shopping for men. But here it really is a task. I didn’t even know what shops to consider or what items to look at. Watches? Where to go? Interesting books and DVDs? Where to go? Bear in mind I’m on a Ghanaian salary as well, that kind of restricts me from buying what’s available from the boutiques on Oxford Street. For the past two days, that was on my mind. Yesterday morning at the gym it kept popping up: what to buy and when to buy it?!
Then around midday, clarity settled. Where do I buy all my gifts for men in Ghana? From Mawuli’s shop of course! So between meetings, I drove through North Ridge, which is my usual route anyway and stopped at MKOGH (site seems to be out of use/under construction) to pick up this shirt.
Let’s hope the birthday boy likes it!
