Choosing whether to be foodie or shopaholic for a day is quite hard to decide, provided that someone is going to bear all your expenses.

In my opinion, I would be a shopaholic for a day. I would buy lots of clothes and gadgets. I would also buy beautiful accessories. After buying all the things I need, I will think about eating delicious foods.

Now, let’s hear other’s opinion about being a foodie or a shopaholic for a day.

“It’s a really hard question to answer because I am both a foodie and a shopaholic. But if someone is going to pay for it then it would be shopping because you should invest a lot to buy good clothes compared to a fine dining. I would buy tons of clothes, shoes and many more accessories worth thousands or lakhs of rupees. So, I choose shopping.” Raman Maharjan, 2nd semester student at DWIT

“I would rather choose being a shopaholic. Yeah I like eating but I cannot eat as much as I can shop the whole day. So, let me shop for the whole day and leave the eating thing for other days.” Nisha Dhungana, 4th semester student at DWIT

“Shopaholic!! Obviously food is just temporary. However, if someone is paying all my expenses for a day, I would shop and buy the things I could never afford like branded shoes, branded watches, glasses. That would be great.” Prayush Shrestha, 2nd semester student at DWIT

“I would certainly choose to be a shopaholic even if no one is paying. Work hard, so you can shop harder.” Shila Devi Parajuli, 4th semester student at DWIT

“Anyone who knows me knows that I am a foodie. I love to eat and I love to experiment with food and tastes. But if someone else is paying for a day, then I would go on a shopping spree. A couple of clothes and accessories but mainly tech. Things like cell phones, camera, tabs, and other things that catch my fancy." Kundan Shumsher Rana, 5th semester student at DWIT

“I would rather choose being a Shopaholic over Foodie. Food can just gives us pleasure for a short period of time whereas by shopping I can fulfill my long list of desires. Furthermore, updating my gadgets is always better than gaining extra couple of pounds.” Munmun Shrestha, 2nd semester student at DWIT

“That is really a tricky question. You never say 'NO' to food. Shopping? Always and forever. There is possibly no way I can choose one. Be a foodie and also a shopaholic, be awesome.” Shreya Acharya, 2nd semester student at DWIT

“WOW! If someone is paying for a day, I would be a complete Shopaholic. You may ask "Why not a Foodie?" Well, food is just for a short period of time. You can have as much as your stomach can handle. And "Why a Shopaholic?" because the things you buy is going to be with you for longer period of time like electronic gadgets, shoes, clothes and stuffs. But, if someone is going to pay... I would completely forget to buy the things I need and end up with useless junk.” Sagar Giri, 5th semester student at DWIT

“Shopaholic. I would buy anything and everything I fancy. I would buy for myself of course but I would also buy for people I like and give them expensive gifts with a smile :)” Prakriti Shree Tuladhar, 2nd semester student at DWIT

“I am rather interested in eating food. Shopping doesn't interest me that much. I like eating tasty food. I would rather go to five star hotels. Though I won't be able to eat too much food but, I would rather taste all types of food.” Ashish Chhetri, 5th semester student at DWIT

“For me it a very hard decision between eating and shopping. I would want both if I was given a chance. But nevertheless, I would shop in this instance because there are many items in my list. I have not been able to buy it all for myself and would love to add some in my wardrobe. So, I guess I would like to become a shopaholic for a day at this point of time.” Anushka Maharjan, 2nd semester student at DWIT
