I thought that I am a very indecisive person but there are many others who are even more indecisive than me!

Don't buy from Xquisis!!

Hi all. I am very sleepy now but I need to blog about this first before I go to sleep. If not, I can't sleep! I am so angry with Xquisis. I did a backorder for a white motorcycle bag from them in Nov. I wanted to bring it out for Christmas and it was written on their website that we were able to collect it just in time for Christmas. So, I thought that it's great and I just did the order. Altogether, I paid about $30 plus including reg mail postage. I received the bag about 1 month later on around 23 Dec. Okie, just in time for Christmas but my nightmare began! My bag has stains and it was pretty bad!! Not only that, but the zip has spoilt.

See photo below:

Therefore, I sent Xquisis and email and this is their reply (I copied and pasted from their email): 

Hi dear
Sorry jus saw ur email due to Xmas celebration too
Sorry abt this guess my part timer was rushing to pack n forgot to check before packing
For the stain would u like to try warm water or nail polish remover to wipe it? Usually we do it this way n it works
As for the zip , it's not spoilt as the zips are first time usage, it's positioned in a way u need to pull all the way back first before starting to use
You can pull the zipper head till the end n pull back all the way

Our quality are generally good otherwise we will not hav many repeated customers. Just that part timers overlook to touch up here n there therefore overlooked
Apologies dear, let mi know if they work thanks

Now, you all can judge for yourselves if the reply constitutes good customer service. For me, I don't think it does. How can just shift the blame to the part-timer? So anyway, I was so pissed with their reply. In the end, they told me to send via reg mail to them to see what can be done. I told them to pay me $4.79 for the reg mail postage but they said that they will only refund me when they got the bag. Now, is this their so-called good customer service? First, they don't even bother checking their products then they sent out. Second, why should the customer pay for the reg mail first when it is not the customer's fault that she received a spoilt bag? I didn't even ask them for compensation for all these inconveniences lor!! I didn't get to use this bag for Christmas (which is why I bought the bag). I still got to purposely travel down to the post office and send to them. I also need to wipe the stains off myself and tried to fix the zip. But it is really spoilt, I can't fix.

Now, I have shopped at places with much better customer service/after sale service. They are so apologetic and will at least pay the customer for the registered mail first before asking the customer to send the items to them. They also offered a 10% discount on their next purchase. That will make me their loyal customer. Smooch is one of the blogshops with good customer service.

Someone told me that I can find Xquisis items on taobao. I haven't gone to search for them yet but I saw the motorcycle bag there:

I have bought a black one from taobao (lucky I didn't buy 2 bags from Xquisis). It is cheaper than Xquisis (about $20 plus only) and arrived much faster. So far all my taobao items are okie, not defective.

Haiz~ Don't understand why all these blogshops owners are so not empathetic. Just put themselves in the customers' shoes and think for them. Is it too much to ask for?

Went to attend Robin's cousin's wedding lunch reception at Grand Park City Hall.

After the wedding lunch reception, we went to shop at the new Katong Mall then to Giant at Parkway Parade to buy stuff to cook dinner at Robin's house.

There were so many people at the new GV at Katong Mall. 

Shopping for groceries. Robin needs to lose weight!! Haha!

Review - Bag from Xquisis

My white motorcycle bag from Xquisis has arrived!! I love it but there are some stains on it. Wonder if I should ask for an exchange. But I really really want to bring it out for Christmas! I managed to clean some of the stains off using wet tissue but some are still visible =.=

Can see the stains?

More stains =( 

Compare it with my black bag. Think it's easy for white to become stained.

Hi people. Any tuition teacher or aspiring teachers around? I have an assignment at Bukit Merah, near Tiong Bahru MRT. Looking at either Mon, Thu 6:30pm-8pm or Tue, Fri 8pm-9:30pm. Preferably someone with experience. Looking at teaching primary levels. I will not be charging you anything and won't take 50% commission of your first month tuition fee =)

Do email me at for details.
I don't know why taxi drivers are so picky and like to TALK and TALK. So now I can't even be a nice passenger. Must show people black face =.=

What's the difference between friends and activity partners? I used to be a good friend (I think) but recently I began to change (sort of). Why? Maybe because some of my friends are slowly becoming activity partners. I don't want activity partners. I don't want people whom we just meet up to eat, chat and play. I want something more than that (like how those artistes have their jie mei tao) but it's hard to develop and maintain true friendship. Like even though we don't meet up but we are always there for each other. Maybe like my auntie and I =)

Anyway, my heart really ache for my grandma. She needs to go for another eye cataract surgery for the other eye. Makes me feel she's really getting old and time is sort of running out. Used to go out with her almost every sat but hasn't been doing that. I think I should change my tuition date to spend more time with her.
I have seen so many nasty customers but I fail at being a nasty/demanding customer. Why? How to master the skill of nastiness? I still remember that when I went for my 紫微斗数 analysis, the master told me that I cannot win people at arguments. Really =.="

Very lazy to go out these days especially to town area. Just told Onyee not to ask me to town area until after Christmas. Lolx~ So crowded and traffic jam! Human jam on the bus as well.

McDonald's Monopoly Chance Card Draw
