It's Sunday... And it's time for another Beautiful Sunday and Sublime Sunday. So, I'm trying something new this week. Something out of the box, something different, something wild, something odd and who knows where this Sunday will lead us.
It's been slightly over 3 months since my last visit to Vincom Dong Khoi. Somehow with all the lock down, it became a norm to stay home and going out no longer interest me. Then again, I wanted to explore this mall since getting some outdoor window shopping sounds like a good idea.
This was taken last weekend and though we didn't really have to wear mask, it became a norm at least for me, especially in a crowded open area like these. It's really sad to see how empty the malls are nowadays. Guess more and more people are conducting online shopping for their own safety. Those days, it was more of a trend. What's to happen to these stores? Won't be surprised if one by one they start to close down just like the ones we've been reading on the news. Retail stores will suffer and eventually close down ?
Even with signages of 50% sales doesn't seemed to do the trick of captivating any passerby to drop in. Everyone is saving up just in case the rainy days gets longer and worst than expected. I know I try to manage my expenses better nowadays as well though eating home alone can be depressing at times.
This is the view from the top floor of Vincom Mall. I stood here for quite a while and all this time, there was hardly anybody walking around. Perhaps later in the midday, the crowds will come and these retail stores will have some business at least. It's too make-belief, I know. From the looks of it, this will be the new norm where lesser and lesser people comes to these stores or mall. Unless they are here for the air-conditioning 🙄
