2010-04-27

they reduced the wastage from 21% to 16% They also reduced the making charges from 200 to 150 rupees... Total cost is Rs. 4800... Operation 'golden ear' is a success...


2010-04-27

if the shop ppl are sure that u r going to buy, they will come and ask for a refreshment - tea/coffee/juice/cooldrink... I prefer a saridon...


2010-04-27

they have selected a 2.5 gram ear ring... With a small whitish purple stone... Now they are bargaining on the rate... Its a ritual to bargain on rates... Whatever it may be... Paper or aeroplane...


2010-04-27

they have zeroed in on two ear rings... Hope they will select among these two in next 20 min...


2010-04-27
