Online Shopping Makes My Day!

In the name of boredom really, I made a lot of online purchases this month. Seriously, I got to stop now before I turn into an online shopping addict. Somebody, please keep my credit cards away!

In this internet savvy world that we’re in, it’s incredibly convenient to purchase just about anything from the comfort of home and even OFFICE. I can go from store to store with the flick of a finger and make purchases in a matter of minutes.

I feel as happy as a child whenever I see a little crumpled package waiting for me to collect in my mailbox or delivered to my doorstep via courier. It’s that sudden feeling of anticipation and excitement when I grab it, tear the wrapper apart and discover the contents in it (although most of the time I already know what is inside).

Earlier this week, I received the Crocs shoes that I bought from the SMH Bulk Purchase. Every time when the Husband sees a package, he will frown and say “shopping again!” And it irritates him further when he finds out that the items are shoes. Simply because, our shoe rack is now fully occupied with Little Edison and my shoes.

Now, I have a very good and valid reason to buy shoes. Because we don’t have a helper now and I don’t have time to wash our boy’s shoes so often, thus I need to buy more shoes as spares. Reasonable, isn’t it? Now, our boy has about 15 pairs of shoes – excluding slippers. These are just part of them that I washed last weekend.

Yesterday, I received my dresses from MDS and I’m so delighted. They fit perfectly! I like to buy clothes from online shops. But when I don’t like the items when I receive them, I’ll chuck them aside. This year, I have an excellent way to dispose these items. I’ll give them to my staffs and colleagues as Christmas presents. Haha!

Today, I’m anticipating another delivery from DHL. Coming up in August, I have Ralph Lauren, Gap and Old Navy clothes that I bought from the oversea sprees and some DVDs from Amazon. I can’t wait!

Hi SY,
MDS is much better than other online stores. I bought from them thrice. So far, all the clothes are OK and fits well. The prices are reasonable too. But of course, you can’t compare with brands like GG5, LVER etc. What I like about MDS is that you can return the clothes for refund if you don’t like them (except sales item). They have 2 outlets at Wisma Atria and Plaza Sing. You can check them out.

impressive with the number of shoes for little Edison:). but yeah, the reason sounds good to me to buy more…

Hi PC,
Yeah, he has Combi, Pediped, Little Blue Lamb and mostly Crocs shoes. I particularly like Crocs because they are easy to clean and dries fast. Our boy likes Crocs too!

hi :
May I know do we need Vpost to buy books/DVD from Amazon? I go to the website , they don’t ask for the Vpost address. I just wondering whether I can directly key in my address in Singapore.

Sorry, I’m unable to assist you in your question. I order through WanPing (a mother who organises oversea spree in SMH Forum). I’m not sure how the shipping works.
