Suzanne and her mother were walking along the road when they saw a five hundred dollar bill on the ground.
Suzanne squealed in delight! What a convenient time it was to have found so much money,
since both of them were just on their way to shop for the day. However, Suzanne's mother was more
steadfast in her reaction.
She insisted that they look around for the owner of the money first.
When her mother had confirmed that the owner could not be found, they
pocketed the money and made their way to Orchard Road.
Both mother and daughter felt so much richer that day.
It was as if their whole shopping trip had already been paid for by some kind soul.
The first stop they made was at the shoe department. Suzanne was wild about shoes that came in
varying shapes, colours and sizes.
Since she had wanted a pair of shoes for so long, her mother let her choose the pair she liked best.
The next stop was at the women's wear department, where Suzanne's mother bought some clothes to wear to the office.
Since she worked as an executive buyer for a major company, she always had to look her best when she met customers.
Suzanne and her mother spent so much time shopping that they forgot their lunch completely.
So, Suzanne suggested that they have high tea instead.
She preferred high tea to lunch because of all the little cakes and sweets they served.
Both mother and daughter headed straight for their favourite hotel for their delicious meal. What a day it had been!
