Goodies Part 2

Published February 28, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Hahaz! Was suppose to clear as many mails as I can. But lazy me only opened up two and give up totally after that. My eyelids feel very heavy. But before I go, checkout the two letters that I’ve opened up.

First up is my Dermalogica sample request via a certain facebook page, where 3 out of 4 samples will ben given out randomly for each applicants. These are the 3 sample sachets that was post to me. Love them all so much.

Last but not least is the sample that I had requested from RoyalCosmetics. I’m so amazed by the amount of gold bits inside this mini sample bottle. It kinda remind me of the Bio-essence 24K Series. Wonder which is better.

More Goodies For me!

Published February 27, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Many weeks had passed since I last clear my mailbox. I never expect to see it accumulated by such a considerable amount during my absence. Shall start to clear them bit by bit, as and when I got free time on hand. Let me see the first two mail that I had opened up.

First up is the coffee sample from Brooks that I had signed up via their facebook page. Not sure how long ago was that. Think I kinda lost count of time. But nevertheless, am happy to finally received the samples. Am so looking forward to trying them out. Which one should I try first?

Next but not least, is a leather watch pouch that I had won for myself via some facebook contest. Do pardon me! But I also can’t remember how long ago had I won this item. But one thing for sure. I’m very happy to be able to win and received so many new items and goodies from myself… …

There is still a mountain high of letter and parcels that I need to clear. Times is really not enough. Will try to clear a few daily. Till then, I’ll be off to bed. Need to wake up very early tomorrow. Au revoir!


My New Wallet!

Published February 26, 2012 by ireneyksoh

My wallet that was purchased more than 5 years ago is starting to show signs of wear and tear. I seriously need to get myself a new wallet to replace. However, my stingy nature remains a hinder to my search for a new one. But after a few failed attempts to win myself a wallet via facebook contest, I finally give up all hopes and bought one for myself instead.

And all thanks to a lovely gal friend whom I had get to known during my course of work, I was able to get my hand on not  just one, but rather 2 wallets at a super attractive prices.

OMG! Doesn’t the wallet look nice to you? I’ve changed into my new wallet the moment I got it. But sadly, Dad don’t like his. He said this wallet is for girls, and is too ‘sweet’ for him to use. What kind of theory is that? I don’t understand. But it just mean one thing. Now I’m stuck with an extra wallet. Damn! What should I do? Anyone wanna buy from me?

S’pore Women’s Weekly March 2012

Published February 21, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Finally got time to drop by Books Kinokuniya to get my hands on a copy of the latest issue of S’pore Women’s Weekly March 2012. Reason? Because every copy of the magazine purchased at Books Kinokuniya entitled me to a box of Himalayas Herbals Facial Hydrating Set worth S$16.20.

The beauty box consist of

01. Hydrating Face Wash Cream 75ml
02. Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub 75ml
03. Refreshing Fruit Pack 75ml

A very attractive deal if you were to ask me. And most important of all, its a brand that I loved to use too. Was kinda planning to get myself a few more sets as backups once I finished my current box. And if you very particular about the expiry date of the products just like me (I tend to ask to see the expiry date of mag GWP b4 buying them), the date on my box is Jul 2014.  Which is more than 2 years later. I was so happy. Am seriously considering getting a few more sets as backups once I finish this box. Am so loving them.

The price of the magazine is $4.20.  And it cost me only S$3.75 after KPC discount, which makes the deal even more tempting. Hope still got stock when I drop by to buy more during my next off day.

BTW: If you are curious as to how I know about so many mag GWP. Its all thanks to Kenji Sugizo. He is a big fan of mag GWP and even started a blog, updating mag GWPs from various bookshops. If not for him, I would have missed out on such a great deal. There were lot more other fantastic mag GWP that he had posted, but me only buy those that are useful to me. Do checkout his blog and you would know what I mean. Beware though! Cos the website is not wallet friendly.

Goodies From The Sample Store

Published February 20, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Another lot of free samples that I had check out for myself from The Sample Store. All I had to pay for is the postage fees. Fascinating, isn’t it? There are still so many items that I would loved to check out. But sadly, The Sample Store only allow a maximum of 4 samples per checkout.  If you love to check out samples like I do, click HERE to sign up under my referral link.

Speaking off, I haven’t been visiting another free sample website for a very long time already. Guess I better hurry before all the good things are gone.

Super Cheap Treat From Gmarket

Published February 20, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Okay! Okay! I know what you are going to say. Another purchase from Gmarket? Yeah! Why not? Since the things are so cheap. And I only buy things that are super cheap.

And as always, the story begins with me browsing through the daily deals available on Gmarket. Then violas, a super deal deal caught my eyes. Pay S$2.50 to redeem for a small beverage at The Coffee Bean And Tea Leaf worth S$6. WOW! That was like almost 60% discount. So tempting! How can I bear to give it a miss?

All I have to do next is just to print out the e-ticket from my Gmarket account and present it to the vendor. My choice of beverage- Mocha Ice Blended, from their branch at Vivo city. Sweet and easy!

It been such a long time since I made my last purchase. I would often get a cup for my mum after every single one of our shopping treat, At first, my mum only drinks hot coffee. But got kinda hook to it since her first try. Mocha is her favourite choice of coffee, cos she adores the slight sweet chocolate taste. I loved to see the expression she had on her face whenever she drinks the coffee. Its like I had treat her to the world best beverage. I want to continue to pamper her, just the way she pampered me. She is my love, my darling, my most precious mum. But now, I had no chance already.


Another Order From Gmarket Arrived!

Published February 17, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Hooray to the arrival of yet another of my Gmarket order today. Am so happy to receive parcels and letter. Especially when they comes loaded with goodies for me.

My latest purchase: Magic scarf.

I first got to know about it when I was shopping for some plush toy for a friend’s birthday at Action City. They had a prominent display for the scarf and a promoter was there to show customers the different ways of wearing it. And the price? S$39.90 I was like WOW!

Then Giant Hypermart also come out with yet another version of the same product. But this time is cheaper. Is really cheap. But stingy me still refuse to pay such an amount for it.

So when I come across this one on sale. I just had to grab them before the price went back to normal again. Bought one for my younger sister and another for myself. I choose light pink and black. But not sure why the pink color turns out to be so different. Seems to be more like purple than pink.

Til then, I’ll be off to play with my new toy now. Au revoir…

My Completed Recesky Camera

Published February 15, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Remember the Recesky camera that I bought before CNY? Well, I finally found some free times to assemble up this little babe during my off day. Oh boy! It sure was tough work! It was mentioned on the box that assembly time would be about an hour. But stupid me took almost three hours to complete mine. Really tough work to me. But the moment it is completed, everything seems to be so worthwhile. Shall put in the film and go outdoor for some shooting fun during my next off day. Wonder how my pictures would turn out to be… …
