[Review] GEMFIVE Online Shopping Website

Gemfive is operated by Guoline emarketing, a member of Hong Leong group. To be frank, i think they need to improve their marketing campaign as not many people are aware of their existence in e-commerce. I like the layout and graphics, it’s responsive, clean and minimalist. You see what you need to see.

Based on the products they listed, gemfive is more to high end products. You can get Ogawa home spa massage chair at RM12k, Samsung TV at RM80k till gateway packages at RM20k. Some of the deals are very attractive. I’ve made twice transactions with gemfive and i am satisfied with the products i received.

First, i bought a pair of New Balance Sneakers with discount on Cybersales day. The exact same pair is selling at Rm199 at Zalora and Lazada. Item received few days later after the transaction. No tracking code provided. The order confirmation email written ” You will receive email notifications upon processing and delivery of your order and a link to track its progress.” But there is no other email notification other than this confirmation email and invoice email. I logged to my account and check but the order will only shown processing. Never mind, at last i received my sneakers in great bargain.

And i just bought a luggage bag with 30% discount.

Good and as seen on website. Received the warranty card inside the luggage bag too. And now i guess i will be the regular in gemfive.

Not sure how is their customer service quality as i don’t have a chance to use it yet. But i am concerned about the credit card payment, their payment gateway didn’t trigger the MSOS code for credit card, and no statement for the PDPA. I had to call to my credit card helpline to check on the next day. I guess i will not be using credit card in Gemfive in the future, maybe other payment method.

Grid & Go – Waffle Stall @ One Utama Shopping Center

While waiting for 007 Spectre in GSC One Utama, i bought a waffle from Grid & Go to try.

Grid & Go is located at the same floor of Golden Screen Cinema. The waffle stall is clean and bright, you can easily spot it at first glance.

They have quite a few choices for waffle flavors. But all the waffle is just waffle, without any toppings. IMO, the waffle tastes great on its own.

Creamy Hokkaido @ RM 7. Crispy outside and soft inside. It’s not creamy inside, but the texture is softer mochi like.

Mochi Caramel @ RM6. It is pretty much like Creamy Hokkaido but with the caramel taste. The inside is thicker and more chewy. I like Mochi Caramel than Creamy Hokkaido, but both were good waffle too.

It has been a long time i haven’t go out with my favorite human. So we decided to catch up for a bit and went to have dinner in Tsubohachi Izakaya Hokkaido in Publika. This is the their first branch in Malaysia. We were so attracted by their interior design. They have these gigantic bathtub looking seating and also many cute maneki neko on the wall.

The service was superb! Once we were setting down, the waiter brought hot towel [Oshibori ] for us to clean our hand. Besides, we never need to raise our hand for ordering! Our tea cup were kept being refilled.

Tarabagani Kamameshi – Red King Crab Pot Rice
We had to wait 10-20 minutes for the rice to cook, but the wait is worth it. There were 4-5 pieces of king crab legs in the pot. The rice becomes rich with crab, carrot and mushroom flavor.I cannot taste any seasoning but just the natural flavor from the ingredients, which is very nice and comforting.

Onsen Tamago. One with the special sauce and one with the regular shoyu. I think the special sauce is the mixture of shoyu and ponzu sauce.

Overall, i will definitely re-visit again for the good food and great service. If you cannot get a seat in Senya Izakaya, is a great choice to come Tsubohachi Izakaya.

Shopping experience with Luxola in Malaysia

I have this big and very comfortable comb that i bought from Caring in Mid valley. I have been using that comb for more than a year and it was already broken weeks ago. I have been using my fingers to comb my hair for more than weeks!

I was tempted to buy Ionic hair brush from Panasonic. But it was too expensive, so i have been researching on this Tangle Teezer. Apparently, there were none or none can be found bad reviews on this tangle teezer. So, i login to Luxola and buy it. It was on promotion sale too!

Need to purchase more than RM80 to get free shipping now. The shipping is quite expensive as Luxola is not operate in Malaysia. So i grabbed other promotional items to get free shipping.

My first and only tangle teezer [RM 69.00 ]. Few reasons that i decided to buy tangle teezer and here is why:-

1) This is a professional detangling comb. I have frizzy and tangled hair.
2) The comb is made from plastic*, i can clean it with water only.
3) It seems durable. I don’t have to keep buying comb.
4) The non-slip ergonomic grip design.
5) It was on sales.

and here is the review of tangle teezer after i have been using it for 2 weeks. As you can see from the picture [or not], Tangle teezer has two different lengths of flexible bristles, and that’s how tangle teezer can painlessly de-tangling hair without ripping it to shreds or causing damage.You might wonder if the comb skipped the tangled hair and just make the non tangled hair smooth since the short bristle seems can’t comb the hair well. But i can assure you, it is working fine on detangling hairs.

Another plus point for tangle teezer is the fallen hair will be trapped on tangle teezer because of the long and short bristles. So, you have less mess to clean on the floor.

But, tangle teezer is nothing much than just a comb. A comb that can comb your hair well and detangle tangled hairs. No special effect, no shinny hairs, no hair growth, just a comb.

Overall, i am satisfied with this new comb.

Wei Dao Jiang Hu Szechuan HotPot Restaurant – Kepong Jln Metro Perdana 3

Wei Dao Jiang Hu has expanded their business and they are doing Szechuan Hot Pot just next to their restaurant. Lap Cheong and me went to try the hot pot and i am here writing the review of it.

The menu and order list. [ Click for larger image ] The menu is same with Xiao Fei Yang restaurant. What you can get from Xiao Fei Yang, you can get it from here. They have barbeque section too, so you can order some lamb skewers, chicken wings and rolled bacon.

We had the combination soup base @ RM18. Half for chicken soup and half for hot and spicy soup. I strongly recommend you to take the combination soup even if you can take very hot and spicy food. The chicken soup was surprisingly good, it does taste like herbal chicken soup that boiled for long time. It was better than the hot and spicy soup.

The sauce counter. You can get whatever sauce that you like from here for unlimited time. They have many types of dipping sauce. From fresh chopped green onions, sesame oil, Lao Gan Ma chili crisp sauce, soy sauce, garlic, fried onion, peanuts, peanut sauce and more! But you have to pay for the dipping sauce too. RM2 per pax.

Pickled cabbage @ RM8 is a must order if you are having hot and spicy hotpot. It goes very well with hot and spicy soup.

Fresh prawn paste @ RM15 This was strongly recommended by the lady boss. The prawn paste was so-so and the portion is really small for RM15. Not recommended.

Cuttlefish pork ball @ RM8. There were 8 pieces of it but they cut them in half.

Special pork ball aka Explosion pork ball @ RM8. Hot gravy or soup will explode inside your mouth when you take a bite of this pork ball.

Luncheon meat @ RM10. Not recommended. The luncheon meat was the healthy version of luncheon meat. It was firmer but lack of taste. We were like chewing a meat taste of harder version tofu.

Rolled bacon with enoki skewer @ RM3 per stick. We had grilled chicken wings too. The grilled food was good but too much of cumin powder on it.

We paid RM70+ for the meal. Price is really reasonable as you get what you pay. Good soup, good sauce, fresh and tasty food, good service too. Nothing to complain and we will definitely go back for the hotpot.
