And so its time to bid farewell to Mr Goat and say welcome to Mr Monkey. Time really flies. And as I look forward to 2015, I can’t helped but looked back at how 2015 had been for me.
2015 has not been a bed of roses for me, with lots of ups and downs like a roller coaster. Many things had happened and for a good reason. I am not going to push any blames to others by saying things like, its because of ‘XXX’ or ‘YYY’ that I had to go through such ordeals. My attitude and way in handling situations contributed a large part to this outcome. I simply did not think more seriously and deeply. I tend to presume a lot of things without confirming the executability and its complexity, as well as taking things from granted.
May 2016 be a fruitful year for me. May all my family members, loved ones, friends and colleagues be blessed with great health. May we all win in lots and lots of contest together. Lets huat huat huat ah this monkey year…
It was by God knows how many strokes of luck (Not sure if its mine or hers) that I ‘rescued’ myself a pet hamster at NEL Mrt station. It was so unbelievable that when I told my friends and colleagues about it, most of them simply stare at me and a few simply went dumbfound. The guys were asking: “Why is it not cash that you had found?” and the ladies were asking : ” You pick up a rat with bare hands?” I was like hahaz… Hamsters does also belongs to the Rodent family but they are different from rats. Same goes to other species like Gerbil, Guinea pig, Mice and Chinchilla.
Thanks to a lovely sister, Liana who helped me keep a lookout on SGfreerecycle page, Hamu hime had a really awesome cage to called its home. There were lots of other part to this cage but I decided to keep it sweet and simple. Not only because Hamu hime is still quite small. Mostly importantly, is due to space constraint in my house.
My favourite past-time now is to watch the sleeping habits of my little princess Hamu hime. Its not as if my bro and I did not buy any toys for her. We even gotten her a cute wooden house to sleep in. But our darling princess simply refuse to sleep in the house. She would rather sleep all around her cage than inside. The house ended up becoming her dumping ground for empty seed shells and garbage.
Was your hamster that cute too? Care to share with me?
I am a super big fan of Daiso and I loved to go shopping at Daiso outlets. I even joined almost all Daiso groups on Facebook to get to know more Daiso fanatics like myself. I really loved their ideas and am looking forward to their post daily.
Daiso kinda reminds me of the good old $1.99 shop. I missed that shop too. That was the shop that got me addicted to japanese culture and snacks. I would never fail to go shopping during my lunch break when I was working at Ngee Ann City. Its like treasure hunt to me.
With just a mere $2 per item, you will tend to overlook and grabbed too many items, only to realised it when you are making payment at the cashier counter. So I only bring enough money for my meal and max $10 with me if I were to go Daiso.
The solar powered black and white kitties are so cute. I bought a set for myself and more to share among my friends. They all loved them too. The orange bottle is Wrinkle smoother for clothes. I saw a number of good reviews among Daiso fans for it so I’ve gotten a bottle to try too. Not really a wow factor for me. But at least my clothes remain nice and smooth for a while.
The translucent tray is called a fry try. It is suppose to contain ingredients for you to prepare fried stuff, thus its name. The fry tray is from a similar shop name Tokutokuya. Daiso also sells fry tray but I was never able to get any for myself. It was often sold out within hours after being display out. I loved to read updates and see the different ways of using the fry tray by other and be super amazed by their creativity and awesome ideas.
Next are the cute key cover. I am sure you can tell by now that I am a big fan of anything kitty too. But surprisingly, the mouthless hello kitty is just not my type. I prefer Kuromi instead.
The body sheet is a highly recommended by one lovely gal, Mei ling. And that I definitely must grabbed at least one packet to try. And that I would never regret my decision. She is absolutely correct. The body sheet had since that day topped my list for 1000% die die must buy items from Daiso. Try it and you will loved it like me too.
It is also thank to Mei Ling that I was able to own things from Daiso in Japan and Thailand. She is a very sweet lady who helped all fellow Daiso Fans grabbed things from oversea Daiso back to Singapore and selling them to eager fans at cost price. OMG! Isn’t that so sweet of her??? Although there are people who take advantages of her (Buy cheap from her and go sell on Carousel at profit price). I think those people are totally disgusting..
Everytime I looked at them, I can’t helped but be amazed by the vast type of items available at overseas Daiso. I mean, why can’t they bring in to Singapore also… I am sure a lot of fans like me would loved to get their hands on the items if given the chance…
What is your favourite item from Daiso? And how much do you loved it? Care to share with me here?
Til the next post, Au Revoirs…
Before I revealed further details can I just have a show of hands, how many friends here would like to own a McDonald X Line Plush Toy??
My dearest cousin came to my house and bring these 2 sets of this plush toys. Am currently thinking whether or not to organise a gift away. And if I do, shall it be given away as a set for one lucky winner. Or a plush toy each for five lucky winners. Which one do you think? Can update me or drop me a message here?
Its only the 2nd week of 2016 and I am being blessed with two sweet gifts from both an online sister and also from a regular customer, when I was working as Retail assistant. I am so happy and honoured to have gotten to know them both.
The First blessing comes from SIster Liana who gave me this Samsung battery pack. It was very sweet of her to do so. And very timely too as my Xiaomi powerbank is starting to show minor problems now. Though I not sure whether its the cable’s fault or it had indeed spoilt. Shall grab a new cable to test it out…
The next gift comes from a regular customer cum friend. I had known him since I first started work in 2012. He will drop by my workplace whenever he is nearby and dropped my colleagues and myself some small gifts like the two pouch as shown. A very sweet and chatty gentleman. He is more than just a regular customer to me. He is also a good friend.
Am so thankful to them both for giving me such lovely surprises. May they both be blessed with great health and fortune…
Till then, Au Revoir…
After being away from office for a almost a week and going back to see these sweet goodies at a corner of my desk. I feel so happy and blessed to be working with such sweet colleagues who always takes the time to prepare goodies bags for everyone during Xmas period. Its feels so good to be still getting presents and treats during Xmas.
Next year, I shall prepare a small treat bag for everyone too.. I think so… Or maybe when I dont feel lazy… It might be a bit hard since I am known for my laziness.. But I guess, I will try hard. And maybe I can prepare some to giveaway to friends here too. What do you think??? Let’s discuss… Afterall, Xmas is still a long way to go… …
