Huo Lu Ai Korean BBQ Restaurant – SetiaWalk Puchong

I went to explore da:men USJ with my friend last week, we also had dinner in Huo Lu Ai Korean BBQ Restaurant and i think this restaurant is worth to share.

da:men USJ is fairly new but there are few number of shops around. I enjoyed shopping in the Jaya Grocer, there are plenty choices of fresh meats and cheese. There are few restaurants but me and my friend were craving for some Korean food. We decided to go to Setia Walk for Ticket to Korea restaurant. Ticket to Korea is a Korean food restaurant and one of their signature dish is pork ribs with cheese.

Ultimate Guideline to Get the Best Deals in E commerce [2015]

I have been shopping online since i was in secondary school. Back then there’s not many eCommerce platform so i start with buying bags and accessories on local forums and dealing with forum sellers. There are so many eCommerce platforms now, you can shop for anything in anytime and everywhere. I am a regular in zalora, lazada, taobao, ebay and few platforms now. Here is a few tips on buying online:-

1) If you do not need it urgently, try to put it on cart and don’t check out.
Very soon they will send you a discount code for you to buy the items on cart. Tried this in eBay and Zalora, and it works!

2) Always check before you make any purchase.
I will always google the things i want to buy before i check out. Check on the reputation of the seller, check on the reviews of the products and check if the platform has a good after-sale services.
From my experiences, Lelong and Mudah will not follow up complaints. Its best to COD with the seller in Lelong and Mudah, you can always check on the item before you give out your hard-earned money.

3) Check on these places before you pay.

Check on the social networks. You need to make you own judgement after checking out all the reviews. There is no zero complaints e commerce platforms out there.

4) Check if there is any discount code.
Do you know you can always google for discount code? There are many good websites out there for you to compare prices and get seasonal disounts.

5) Contact the eCommerce platforms first.
Contact the eCommerce platforms first if you have any complaints for the products or service. Things will go smoothly if you just contact them to solve the problems.

It’s really convenient to be able to shop online. Be nice to the seller, be polite to the e commerce customer service, be patient for the delivery and take control of your budget. Stop impulse shopping.

I will list out all the reputable e commerce platforms in next post. Stay tuned. [P/S: Save up for cybersales 2015! It’s coming soon]

Taobao 1111 Haul

I was planned to write on Taobao 101- how to buy from Malaysia without using agent service guide. Many of my friends keep asking me how to buy from taobao, but my deer , Taobao has a very detailed guideline on how to purchase for oversea users. Click here for Chinese and English Guideline. In case you really get confuse or don’t know how to read Chinese at all / google translate..etc… then you can find me, i am happy to help.

11 September is Taobao sales day of the year. If you don’t buy on 11.11, you will regret for the whole year. A lot of branded goods (authentic as long as you get them from TMall) and many goods were in big discount. If you missed out 11.11 sales, you can still be able to join 12.12, 12.12 is another Sales day in Taobao, put the things you want to buy on your cart, collect daily vouchers, play daily games to get more vouchers and check out on 12.12.

Here is what i bought from Taobao on 11.11

Taobao shop: aza旗舰店
Price: RMB 108 ( long purse), RMB 208 ( handbag)

The rest are the small little items, i am too lazy to share

Actually, i bought this Charles & Keith bag on sales day too because it was on sales.

But, they never send out the parcel and i need to remind them more than 5 times. At last, they asked me to opt for refund because they found the bag was defected before sending out. So, i asked for refund and get refunded after 2 weeks later.

The shipping from warehouse to my house = RM 22+- ONLY, because on 11.11 sales day, Taobao have RMB 1/ 1st KG for international shipping promotion.

Call me angel, i am going to share you some tips to Taobao.

1. For parcel forwarding agent, please use  4PX递四方 . Fast and safe delivery. I’ve been using them for more than 3 times.

2. Make sure you’ve make  2 times payment  when you taobao, 1st payment for the item to deliver to the warehouse ( parcel forwarding warehouse), 2nd payment for parcel forwarding agent to forward your parcel to Malaysia.

3. You have 7-14 days ( more or less, depends on which agent you using) free for storing your items in the warehouse, after 7-14 days, you will need to pay day cost fees.

4. You need to register for Alipay account, it’s very easy to register and you can use M2U to make payment when you taobao.

5. You can always leave a note to your seller ( before you make the 1st payment), ask them to wrap carefully because the items will be shipped to overseas.

6. Do not overspend like me.
