U Weekly + Dragon Plush

Published January 31, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Finally meet up with a friend of mine who had so kindly helped me purchase a copy of U-weekly during their roadshow at Toa Payoh Hub, more than 2 weeks ago.  Every copy of u-weekly magazine purchase entitled one to a spin at the instant win lucky wheel. My friend bought a copy herself as well. And won a bottle of cooking oil and a dragon plush, which she kindly gave both to me. That is so sweet of her.

OMG! The dragon plush is so cute. Am so happy to have manage to get my hands on it. I heard from my friend that this is one of the set of 4 different designs specially launched for Chinese New Year. Was so hoping to get my hands on the other 3 dragons to complete the set. But not sure where got sell. Shall go google online to check.


Lego Watch

Published January 26, 2012 by ireneyksoh

I placed an order for a lego watch via Gmarket, more than 3 weeks ago and was so happy that it finally arrived safely in my mailbox. July wore one such watch during one of our outings and I so adored it that I start searching for it at Bugis Street and other places. Prices varies from places and the lowest selling price is S$16. As much as I like the watch, my stingy nature relapse and I refuse to pay so much for just a mere watch. So when I come across the low discounted price that Gmarket is offering, I immediately checkout one piece for myself.

My precious lego watch, nicely wrapped with a layer of bubble wraps to prevent any damaged that might occured during transportation. Very nice and sweet of the seller.

Not sure if its my bad luck? Or rather, the seller who shipped out without checking the condition of the watch. I was unable to get my lego watch to work. Not sure if its battery died off, or if the watch is spoilt. This is so disappointing. Been buying frequently from Gmarket, this is the first time I come across such incident.

Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail

Published January 25, 2012 by ireneyksoh

My latest prize is a week supply of Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail from U magazine. My brother kindly accompanied me there to collect my prize. He is such a gentleman. As much as much as I loved my newly won prize, I can’t help but feel upset over one minor issue.

I dropped by New Centre on 18th Jan 2012 to collect my prize. And upon reaching home, was very shocked to find out that my prize expired in less than 2 weeks time. It make me feel so sad. What if I collect my prize at a later date? How can they give away prizes with such near expiry date.

Recesky DIY Lomography Camera (Lomo Camera)

Published January 25, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Been wanting to lay my hand on the Gakken TLR camera since the day it was available for sale at Books Kinokuniya. It was sold out on quite a few occasions but it came back in stocks every few weeks later. But even so, I still cannot convinced myself to get a copy. Reason is very simple, the selling price is over my budget. The e-mook is selling at S$58.80

So when I come across this deal on Plus! BigDeal,  I know my lady luck had finally decided to shine upon me. And I wasted no time in grabbing one for myself.

Reecesky comes in 6 different colors (red, orange, yellow, blue, white and black), but sadly only black was available when I dropped by to collect mine. Would very much loved to have my favourite blue color. But then again, black is also quite a good color. Upon collection, I also topped up an additional S$3.50 for a roll of film from the vendor.

On the back of the box, it mentioned that the camera can be assembled in about an hours time. But I highly doubted so. Or maybe that hour is just for clever people. I’m not really sure if its the same for me. Shall start doing it during my next off day when I’ve got plenty of time onhand.

I Need A Little Help!

Published January 19, 2012 by ireneyksoh

As much as I wanted to be there personally to get my hands on the magazine and the freebie, many things are standing in my way and work is one of the biggest obstacle. Would anyone who may be living near the listed venue, or perhaps also planning to go down to grab the deal, kindly help me purchase two sets of the deal too? Please kindly sms me at 94369322 if you are able to help. Your kindness is much appreciated.

Ginvera Green Tea Series

Published January 18, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Won these lovely babes from Sunkisstiffy’s Blog giveaway last year. But due to many unfortunate events and happenings, I was unable to meet up and collect them from her until recently. It was very sweet and nice of Tiphanie to come all the way to my workplace at Vivo City to pass me these lovely babes.

If I didn’t remember wrongly, the prize is only of 3 items. The Jade roller is an additional gift, and that is so kind of her.  Am so going to start using them soon.
