Beauty in a bottle

MediaCorp actress Patricia Mok:

“When there is a sale, I always get my panties and G-strings, because, usually, you’ll get deals like “Buy 3 and get 1 free.”

“Here’s my sale-shopping tip for you: Always go window-shopping two weeks before the sales to compare prices and to take note of the things you want to get.

“And it’s best to go early on the first day of the sale to get the best deals.”
