We bumped into actress PEARL THUSI at the opening of Japanese retail store Miniso at Menlyn Park shopping centre in Pretoria and quizzed her about her shopping habits.

Would you rather. . . Shop online or in a store?

It depends – I finally got into online shopping when I was in the States and it’s actually quite dope. It’s fun and exciting to shop online because everything is available in every size and you don’t have to walk around and waste time. But it’s actually better to shop in person because you can fit the thing on and get the feel of it.

Shop for fashion or for your home?

Wow, I want a fashionable home so all of it is fashion at the end of the day.

Spend money on heels or handbags?

I’d have to say shoes.

Shop on your own or with a friend, and if so who?

ZINHLE [Jiyane] and I shop well together – she’s an efficient shopper. Yet when I’m shopping for stuff for my daughter, THANDO, I prefer shopping with her, and when I’m shopping for stuff for myself I’d rather take Zinhle.

Shop for yourself or for someone else?

I’d rather shop for someone else but it also depends on who it is.

Have someone buy you something as a surprise or would you prefer to choose the gift?

It depends on how well they know me, but I do love surprises.
