Which shopping site to go when you are in China?

Greetings!

3 posts in a day is so not me but I suddenly remembered about this very special site and needed to tell everyone about it.

So?

Which site am I referring to?



It is 360buy.com!


Why I love it?

Well, I actually know nothing about it at first, not till my sis told me all about it.

My sis has been raving bout this site and is a very very frequent and satisfied customer of this site.




I gave it a try and was astonished with it.

They have CASH ON DELIVERY where no handling fees are charged!

How cool is that?

I actually really hate internet banking and would very much prefer CASH ON DELIVERY especially when handling fees are not charged.


Some items have no delivery charges too.

And and, you can choose the delivery time and all.

They wrap the things up in bubble wraps and then with their 360buy.com plastic bags!

They things are so secured and you will definitely be very happy!


Their service is so very very awesome too!


Oh and I forgot to mention that the prices are low too, like very very low!


So, if you are currently residing in China, especially Beijing, go check their site out!

You definitely will not regret!




Lazada Malaysia

Greetings!

Ever heard of Lazada?

Pretty sure most of you out there have probably heard about it.

No? Then, here's a lil about me section which I just copy and pasted.

My first ever purchase from them has left me absolutely satisfied with their service and speed of delivery.
I ordered and made payment on the 27th and received my item on the very next day. How impressive is that?



My purchase:

Yes. I needed a memory card for my Samsung Note 10.1 and it so happens that this was on sale.

I bought it for RM31.


Oh and because delivery only comes for free when you spend above RM50, I bought 2 of these.


So, total came up to RM62.

Did you know that the delivery charge is RM10? 


So, yea. 

Do have a look at their site. You won't regret!

They are selling the Samsung Galaxy Camera as well! With free gifts too which are:

Free with Every Purchase Of Samsung GALAXY Camera


1. Hotlink Broadband pack worth RM388
2. Additional Battery worth RM89  . :)



I'm still considering whether to get this camera or not. Haiz.


Anyways, their site is full of awesome deals. So, seriously, do check it out!



Buses in Beijing

Greetings!

I would like to say that buses are like the cheapest mode of transport in Beijing, public transport that is.

Especially if you own a transport card, like this one below: 



It cost RMB0.40 for a bus ride, no matter how long the ride is or how far it takes you.
Without the card, it would then cost RMB1.
Can you see that you will be saving RMB0.60 by getting a card?


They even have this orderly system where seats are prioritised for old people and kids.

I was certainly surprised when i saw people giving up their seats to the elderly and kids since well, in my neck of the woods, people just don't. 

There's also a reason why people avoid the back seats. It's because everytime the bus goes over a bump of some sort, only the back seat people will feel the pain. I would know. I've experienced that.

Daylight Donuts

Greetings!

I'm BACK!!!

One lil info: I won't be blogging about each day. I'll just blog bout places that I've been to and only if i can find the pictures. I didn't really take any pics. 



Back to topic k?

Have you heard of Daylight Donuts?

Stopped here to get some lunch!

Here's how the entrance looks like:





Below is a pic of a stairway leading you to the shop:



This is what you will see! The interior:


For my super bad photos, I would like to apologise and so, I have found some awesome and clear pics on the net which is what you will see below. Enjoy!


 




Below are pics of what I ordered:
Hokkaido Milk Tea which cost RMB7


Pork chop rice with egg which cost RMB15




Guess what? Although this is a donut shop, I didn't get any donuts. Was too full and I didn't even finish the rice. :P



Below is a map to the place:


Info regarding the place: 

The donut Beijing Xueqing Road
Address: the 5th Haidian District Institute路甲. (Forest Road east) 
Tel :010 -62,916,170 
Hours: 8:00 am-23 : 00pm


 So, if you are currently residing in Beijing, especially Haidian for all you University folks, do check this out!
The price is super affordable! I had the same thing at Jaya Crepes at Sunlitun but it cost RMB42. There you go! Can you see the difference in the price? And mind you that the amount is the same, taste not too far off.


Plus, I forgot to mention that the drinks are half priced when you order the lunch. So mine was half priced since I ordered the pork chop rice.


Do try their donuts too! They are priced at RMB7 for 1.

And probably coz I'll be using my handphone to take pics. 

I so want the new Samsung Galaxy Camera just so blogging will be so much easier.

Anyone can recommend me any good cameras that can transfer pics using wifi? 

I used the Olympus one before, and I hate the quality of the pictures. Even my phone takes better pics.

Less than 2 weeks! YAY!

A no pic post: Tainan Restaurant, midlands Penang

Greetings!

Read on if you wanna know about the best Taiwanese food in Penang!

How i found this awesome place?

Story: So, I was craving for Taiwanese food, especially Taiwanese pork chop. Googled Taiwanese food in Penang and eventually found several food blogs featuring Tainan Restaurant at midlands park. Did I get the name of the mall correct? I think so. So sis, bro and I drove there. Don't really know the location of the restaurant in the mall. We went up to the 4th floor and boy, was that mall deserted or what? We scanned the 4th floor and couldn't find it. Went to the other side. We saw Taiwanese fast food which was located at the 1st floor. Went to the 1st floor. Was about to go in when my sis asked me whether that was the right shop. I was sure it wasnt but couldn't care less. Wanted to go n but sis pulled me. She said the Taiwanese fast food place looked expensive. So we walked further down by 3 shops or so and there it was! I was like, it's this one! We walked in and the person welcomed us. 

The place:  I didn't know this but the kitchen is actually outside where u can actually see the person cooking and making drinks and such. 

Menu: I ordered pork chop rice, RM7 & pearl milk tea, RM3.50. Sis ordered braised pork rice, RM5 & pearl milk tea as well. Bro ordered chicken chop noodles, RM9.50 & chocolate milk tea, RM3.50. 

Taste: The pork chop rice was yummy beyond my imagination. The BEST Taiwanese pork chop rice in Penang. Milk tea was awesome. 

Tax & service charge: NONE!


Parking: ample! It is a shopping mall. So yea. There's parking.


Thanks for reviews on the net!

Greetings!

I have always googled everything I need to know. 

Have you?

Everytime I want to purchase anything, I would read reviews about the product.

This method is really awesome and prevents us from wasting money.

Since, you can't ask the sellers directly about the cons of the products, you can always google for a review or ask the buyers directly about their feedbacks.

Have you done that?

Likewise, I wanted to get the Miyome cream and also the tooth whitening powder but thanks to bloggers who reviewed them, I've decided not to.

Yes, you do read good reviews but sometimes the bloggers are actually being sponsored and won't actually tell the whole truth. Not their fault though. They're just being courteous. If they were to condemn a product that was sponsored to them, well, that's highly unlikely. 

So, do you want good reviews?

Go read from a blog that isn't sponsored. Agree?

So, I really have to say "THANK YOU SO MUCH!" to all bloggers with their very honest reviews which helped me so much in life!

Takeaway Special: Mochi Sweets Gurney Plaza

Greetings!

Ever notice a small lil shop selling mochis near Cold Storage when you walk around Gurney Plaza? I did! Which brings me to post about it.

I bought the 12 pcs set which is RM40. Expensive? Not really, considering the size and we all know Japanese mochis are never cheap!

Below are pics of the mochis and the bag and box and so on:

Pic of the paper bag! Looks really nice even when the bag is just plain black and white.


View of box inside paper bag!



View of box after lifting the lid open!



View of box lid!


Ok...I tried to rotate this pic countless of times but it just won't rotate.
List of flavours!


The mochis beneath the flavour listed paper!


The mochis after taking the plastic sheet away!



This is cream chocolate! Notice the 3 different layers? Well, the outer layer is of course the mochi skin which  taste like glutinous rice skin, not even sure if I'm describing it right.
The layer after that is the paste layer. Like red bean paste but this one has chocolate paste, like in mooncakes.
The most inner layer is the cream part. 



This is the caramel macchiato. 
won't describe the layers anymore since you pretty much already get it.



Wanna have a taste? Head over to Gurney Plaza! You can get one pcs for RM4 if I'm not mistaken. Oh yea, I forgot to mention that the box containing 12 pcs is priced at RM40 right? The flavours are already fixed. If you want to choose your own flavours, it won't be RM40, It'll be RM40++. 



Hope you enjoy this post! See ya later!

See? Aren't they nice?

So, let's move on to the parcel!


Remember that the lashes were sent from Canada? This time, the lenses were sent from Korea!

Below are the pictures:

Can you see the details? Probably not but yea...the parcel is from Korea!


The lenses and also a lens cover. They were actually bubble wrapped but I got too excited again...That I forgot to take a pic before ripping the bubble wraps.



Here's a picture to show the colour I chose. BLUE! My most fav colour!




Stay tune for a review on the lenses! 

1shopping.com.my haul

Greetings!

Remember my post on 1shopping.com.my?

Well, I finally received it right after my vent post on Kangaroo.


Here goes!

This was how the parcel was wrapped. Notice the cellophane tape with 1shopping's logo and name all plastered over it?


This parcel contained all the items except the face steamer/sprayer. 



This is the thing in the box in case you were wondering what was in it. I got this since I needed a face steamer and was searching for it. Coincidentally, found this on their site.



This is the Small new dish sponge hair / ball head / bud head / disk hair stick.
 also commonly known as Xinrong curler. (did u know i had to look for this just to know the name. lol )



This is the Second Generation Magic Sticker
 I actually need this to hold up my fringe while I'm doing masks and so on. It's actually really effective!


This is the 
Original Detox Foot Paste ‖♣♣ ‖- 1 pair/RM 0.69
 Although I can't say much for the effectiveness yet since I have not tried this yet. Will do a review on this later on.


This is the earplugs! Why did I buy this? I don't really know. i just always wanted earplugs that when I saw this, I immediately bought it. Plus, it was only RM0.80.


Oh and also my varsity jacket which you can read all about it here.

Stay tune for more posts on the items above!
