I loved to spent my off days roaming around insides bookstores looking for new books to read. And especially love the bargain corner at Books Kinokuniya Liang Court. I super adored the fact that I can find great books and other items selling at super discounted prices. Not forgetting another favourite section of mine, which is the stationery section. I got most of my pens and pencils supplies from there. Even the stationery section had a small bargain corner too. How can I ever miss checking it out…
I bought myself a copy of Cleo magazine. Each copy comes with a Skinfood Beauty Set containing Skinfood samples and goodies worth S$31.50. The magazine cost me S$3.15, after 10% Kino member’s card discount. Quite worth it for fans of Skinfood samples like me.
And here are the goodies that are inside the Beauty Set. The two larger boxes in the picture contains cotton pads. Am so loving them. Each beauty set also contains a small leaflet for you to claim more samples from any of the Skinfood outlets in Singapore. How more wonderful can things be!!!!
Yes! I know I had lots of pen at home already. But I just can’t seem to stop myself from checking out the stationery department and buying more pens. So when I chanced upon those new babes by Pilot pen, I wasted no time in picking up three of my favourite color.
My last stop was the Bargain corner. Was about to give up when my eyes caught sight of this magazine at the blind corner. Hooray! Its like winning a surprise prize. Am so loving the material of the bag. And its also just the right size for my lunch box. Most importantly, it only cost me S$4.
The material of the black outer bag is like PVC leather, while the violet inner bag seems to be of velvet material. OR at least to me. Shall I use them myself? Or shall I give them to a lucky friend from here?
I was one of the lucky 200 people to have emailed CLEO magazine and won myself a CLEO Heroine Makup Hamper worth S$300. I was initially very happy after collecting my prize from their office at Kaki Bukit. However, a quick calculation on the total value of the items in my package kinda leave me dumbfound. No matter how many times I calculated it, I’m sadly unable to reach the amount as was mentioned.
Despite the discouragement from some of my friends, I’ve decided to stay firm and private message Heroine Make Singapore about my concern. It took them a week and another reminder message before they finally replied me. Turns out that their logistic partner had overlooked and missed out packing some items into the package.
And it took them yet another 2 to 3 weeks before I finally received an email from them , apologizing about the error and to dropby their office again to collect the missing items. I requested for courier service instead, and at my own expenses too. I just don’t feel like going down there again. Distance is one of the main reason ( I lived at TELOK BLANGAH), but most important, my current working hours prohibits me from doing so.
I emailed and requested for the items to be courier to me on 15th Aug 2012, to which they had indicate correctly on the delivery invoice. I specially choose that day as I will be at home to received my parcel when the delivery men arrived. But sadly, the package was sent to me on 08th Aug 2012 instead. Am so shocked when my brother called me up about the parcel. It so happened that he was about to leave the house when the delivery men appeared. I am so very angry. Can you imagined what would had happened if my brother went out early that day?
And these are the missing items. Never expect it to be of such high quantity. And one of the items that they had advertised as the hamper content on CLEO Magazine was nowhere to be found at all. OKIE! So they reserved the rights to change the items in the hamper without notice. That sucks… … And to the max as well… …
