Gmarket/Qoo10 Shops to BOYCOTT (Part I – Pretty Closet contd)!!!

Mentioned in my previous post on the same seller on Gmarket that I will be updating on this juicy bit, so here it is!

So if you would recall on the last encounter I had with this seller PrettyCloset (aka prettycloset.sg), my inquiry was replied with a full stop on Gmarket website.

Read here to see what happened and I’m gonna continue it from there…

No reply after my last message on Thursday 6th Dec… No updates on Friday (which they claimed they sent out the item).. Texted seller on 8th Dec afternoon no reply and finally gotten a reply at night.. 7hrs later after I texted him/her again.

My last message was very clear which was for them to update me when my item is sent out, but no, they failed to.

And the war begins..

“I do not wish to start an argument with you” – perfecto!

I engage in verbal diarrhea when Im angry!

Yadayada…

You’re not interested? I’m not interested either.

The person thinks I didn’t shoot inquiries online… dumbass!

If you don’t wish for any so-called nuisance to reach you via your mobile, then why the f did you put it up online for the 1st place to allow customers to reach you?! Brainless.

Look at how this seller replies to customers. Few dollars, then why do you wanna scam and get yourself into trouble for these few bucks?

Can’t even spell ‘scam’ correctly, a real scum indeed!

I didn’t know typing in caps is illegal and this person seriously is damn fking rude. Donation! I don’t think I need to be donated anything? Not especially when I PAID FOR THE ITEM.

Yawns, seriously bored me out.

I didn’t bother replying his/her stupid last message. But a surprise came last midnight while I was snoozing away but got awoken by this ‘sweet’ msg.

I counter-checked and true enough, I didn’t opt for registered postage because there was no option for that! I assumed I had opted that because I’ve always opted for registered postage for ALL my online purchases. There were only speedpost and normal postage options, so yes I do admit that it’s my bad. But then again, if I didn’t opt for registered postage, why did the person confirmed that the 1st 2 leggings were sent via registered postage? Honestly, I don’t remember if they were sent via normal postage or registered one because I didn’t take much notice, but I’m more inclined to say that they sent via normal postage than registered since they didn’t have that option for me to choose from. It certaintly didn’t arrive in speedpost postage.

Covered the pic as my personal details are stated there.

Firstly, you didn’t promise me anything. Secondly, I totally doubt your identity (person replying told me that there are different person-in-charge for replying online, replying sms-es etc and he/she is just a delivery person/worker. He/she also said that the person replying online to Qoo10 inquiries is the boss.) Thirdly, maybe ‘great’ feedback was tainted with sarcasm. Fourthly, ‘thank you for your business’ seemed a little odd for me. Perhaps reading this article would be beneficial to you?

Lastly, since I can’t confirm that there are 2/3 different people replying to me, I can only deduce :

  1. It’s the same person but with split personality and bipolar symptoms
  2. The person experienced some karma
  3. Some godly figure enlightened him/her
  4. Mama told him/her it’s wrong to find fault with customers especially when it’s the seller’s fault to begin with
  5. He/she is truly apologetic for the bad experience

Anyways, I still stand firm and expect to receive the maroon leggings by this week and actually I am giving this seller the benefit of the doubt by granting him 5days grace period, when actually I should expect it today (Monday) or latest Wednesday.

Whatever the case is, beware of this seller.

By the way as mentioned in my previous post,  PrettyCloset on Gmarket/Qoo10 is the same seller as prettycloset.sg as seen from the shop info on Gmarket on its contact details (email add) which is the same as the one on prettycloset.sg.

P.S. : For those who think that I should let the matter rest by removing the posts, save it. I’m not gonna do that since by alerting potential customers will be doing a favour, a good deed, don’t you think?

Stay tuned for Part II…!

Gmarket/Qoo10 Shops to BOYCOTT (Part I – Pretty Closet )!!!

Updated as of 8th Dec : Will be including updates on the latest correspondences I have had with this stupid seller. So stay tuned. Most importantly, things got worse and I urge you guys to BOYCOTT this shop rather than to treat it as a consideration.

Apart shopping on Taobao.com, I’ve been shopping on Gmarket/Qoo10 as well, especially for beauty items since the former doesn’t allow liquid stuffs to be sent via the customs.

Anyways, here is a list of recommended shops on Gmarket (I still prefer using this name) as well as THOSE YOU SHOULD BOYCOTT based on my personal bad experience with them (with regards to quality of items/customer service/delivery time) WITH EVIDENCE as proof!

Let’s start off with shops WHICH YOU SHOULD BOYCOTT!

1. PrettyCloset (aka prettycloset.sg)

Silly me bought from her the 2nd time without realising it’s the same shop which provided super lousy customer service.

1st incident – Ordered on 13th Sept 2012 – a pair of undergarments from her but realised that I missed out the delivery (I admit this is due to my own fault) by Singpost post man, so I requested for another redelivery. But during this period, I have been trying to liase with her on Gmarket as well as SMS (prompt replies) but she takes a very long time to reply on Gmarket as well as not bothered to help me retrieve my items. I had to call Singpost myself which did not provide any better customer service. The officer told me that he would have to get back to me on this because there was no return address and the item was sent to some warehouse area, think it has been a month and till now, no news from them either. Seller didn’t even bother to check if I’d received my items.

NEH MIND. Partly my fault for missing the delivery (maid wasn’t home).

Her replies were prompt initially…

Took 5 days to reply me

WORSE THING IS, seller didn’t even bother to INCLUDE THE TRACKING NUMBER. I paid for registered postage, hello?

There is a reason as to why buyers opt for registered postage over normal postage – to provide greater security as most sellers will not be responsible for any lost/damaged parcels sent via normal postage and registered postage provides a tracking number which you can track the status of the parcel via Singpost website.

Nope, nothing from her.

Requested many times for the tracking number but she still either ignored/refused to/couldn’t provide.

*Disclaimer* : Just in case anyone maligns me of disclosing personal information in public, the seller’s contact details can be found in the shop info on the Gmarket website.

 

SMS-es correspondences between us :

 

You can tell that she doesn’t even know what she’s saying. I wont be able to get hold of the beat no. if I do not have the redelivery notice with me which would also state the tracking number as well. But I can’t be certain that this tracking number belongs to her parcel because she failed to provide me any and as mentioned, I’ve other pending parcels waiting to be delivered as well.

12th Oct – All SMS-es were sent and replied and after my last message, no reply. Replied on the 15th Oct, 5days after my online inquiry on Gmarket.

And that’s it. No reply from her. No reply from Singpost either.
Moving on…

2nd incident – Ordered on 14th Oct 2012 – Was looking out for leggings and stupidly ordered from the same seller again (yes, my stupidity! I don’t give sellers a second chance…) ONLY 2 out of 3 came. And seller was very DISHONEST!!!

Apparently, I checked back on the status of the items and realised that it was the same shitty seller and what made me even more upset was that she was dishonest to state that she sent the items out on a particular date but in actual fact, it was 11 days LATER. I could check from Singpost, hello? Customers are not stupid and definitely NOT ME.

TOOK ONE WEEK TO GET BACK TO ME

‘Today’ technically meant 27th Nov or giving her benefit of the doubt, 28th Nov…

BUT till now, 7th Dec 2012… NO REPLIES NOR UPDATES.

Pending item DID NOT ARRIVE.

Sent her one last message yesterday, asking for refund.. Will update on her reply, IF ANY that is.

Take a look at her response!!!

One tiny little full stop was the main culprit of the final straw and so I sms-ed her :

She trying to di gong and geh siao!

Notice my tone is harsher than before because it’s really infuriating !!!

I’m not too sure whether to believe her or not, but I gave her benefit of the doubt and directed her to my order which I snapped a picture of from the screenshot. Different people, but don’t partners/co-workers communicate??? She’s not even aware of what is going on???
Honestly, I don’t believe her crap.

There, my reply to her… and after that till now, NO REPLY FROM HER ANYMORE! And I know ‘this’ should be ‘these’, but I just couldn’t think straight when I was burning with anger!!

Goodbye and farewell my maroon leggings and undergarments… Perhaps we weren’t meant to be! 😥

Bottom line : PLEASE BOYCOTT PRETTYCLOSET ON GMARKET!!!

Read other bad reviews on PRETTYCLOSET :

Of course, there are good reviews as well, but if you can’t guarantee that you won’t be as unlucky as me and the rest, try to boycott this seller if possible. I do acknowledge the fact that there are risks attached to online shopping and buyers should order in their own discretion but then again, opting registered postage and items not sent is totally a major turn off of buyers! >=[

Psst, I don’t mean to sound like a rude customer and I acknowledge the fact that customers ARE NOT ALWAYS RIGHT neither are SELLERS ALWAYS WRONG, but I’m quite sure many of you will be able to empathise my situation, no?

After ranting so much, I think I shall save the rest for other parts to come… Before I get all hyped up and burst into flames!

Toodles!

P.S. : By the way,  PrettyCloset on Gmarket is the same seller as prettycloset.sg as seen from the shop info on Gmarket on its contact details (email add) which is the same as the one on prettycloset.sg.

So buyers beware!

CAVEAT EMPTOR ACTIVATED!

A short update

Hey all!

I’m down with a viral fever, most probably caught it from my colleague who caught it from her little son.. On 3days’ MC but guess I’ll be heading back to work tomorrow. Fever has subsided as I opted for the injection last night at the hospital clinic. And boy, the jab was quite painful. Felt like a super duper painful muscle ache! Expensive yes and overall spent $200++, but all’s worth it for health because health is wealth.

My resistance and immune system hasn’t been very strong lately and I’ve been falling sick ever since. 😦

Anyway, here are some of my recent loots, online and retail 🙂

Basic long tank tops are my fav! Easy to match with leggings or you can just wear them as a short dress 🙂

Bandage skirts have taken over the ladies’ closet by storm and I’m sure they are here to stay because they not only accentuate your feminine curves and basic colours like that are really easy to match with a patterned top! 🙂

And then I gotten myself some intimate wears… Teehee~

Seller placed the cute undies in these little drawstring bag pouches 🙂

So it looks like this 🙂

Bought the tank tops, bandage skirts and undies from this seller at Gmarket who was kind enough to reward me with free registered postage as I had bought a handful of stuffs from her 🙂 Great customer service there! 😀

And then I’ve also received some sponsored contact lenses as well 🙂
If you are looking for authentic GEO lens, don’t forget to watch this space for updates! 🙂

And somemore intimate wears from John Little Sales 🙂

Been looking for a black flats and these cute polka dots really melted my heart! 🙂

So there, a little short update on my loots 🙂

At least receiving them cheers me up a little! Imma go have my nap now… The meds are making me drowsy and groggy and not forgetting, forgetful and difficult to concentrate, like how I can’t remember if I’d washed my face during bath -.-

Meds meds meds… 😦

Used to be known as East Shore Hospital… I was delivered at birth there! 😀

Alrightys, hope Monday’s not as grim for you like mine is…

Have a good day ahead! 😀

P.S. : Oh and don’t forget to check out my latest article on Lipsticks and colour gradients on MyFatPocket! 🙂

Sponsored Beauty Review – Secret Key Snow White Princess Cream

A continuation of Secret Key products left off from my exploration of the White Pearl Illuminating series yesterday, today I’d tried Secret Key’s Snow White Princess Cream sponsored by Secret Key seller in Gmarket/Qoo10 🙂

I am more satisfied with this princess cream and I think it’s an awesome idea with regards to its product name. Kinda paints a beautiful and dainty picture of achieving snow white skin – fair, smooth and supple, and transforming yourself into a princessy look! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Raves

  1. It does help to whiten
  2. Affordable price
  3. Does not leave any white residue – that is if you don’t apply too much and have to blend carefully and properly, especially if you are using this as a make up base/primer. For me, I will just stick to using it as a cream/moisturiser.
  4. Non sticky (I used the Secret Key White Pearl Illuminating Essence before I applied the cream)
  5. Skin feels soft and supple
  6. Smells great – powdery fragrance
  7. Can be applied on neck and body parts as well, if you’d like
  8. Pretty packaging and product name!

Rants

  1. As always, I prefer bottled creams with nozzle sprays as it’s less messy and more convenient’
  2. Comes with spatula, can be advantageous to those who utilise it but I don’t. Prefer using my fingers.
  3. Must blend and apply evenly to prevent white residue.

Overall rating :

 

For those of you looking to achieving snow white fair and radiant skin, visit Secret Key at Qoo10 today!

Do check out the other Secret Key products if you are a fan! They are sold at affordable prices and shipping is really prompt and efficient! 🙂

Sponsored Beauty Review – Secret Key White Pearl Illuminating Series

A box of Secret Key products arrived at my doorstep yesterday and boy was I thrilled to try them out!

It’s difficult to get hold of these Korean products unless you have sources or you or your friends are heading down to Korea, so why not check out GMarket’s Secret Key’s products here? GMarket, now known as Qoo10 is very well-known in Singapore and purchasing from them is almost hassle-free! 🙂

Secret Key is one of the famous top selling Korean beauty care products in Asia!

 

Check out the tonnes of products sent to me !! 🙂

Many many series of beauty care products by Secret Key! 🙂

Tried out the White Pearl Illuminating series products today! 🙂

 

 

This series consists of :

White Pearl Illuminating Skin Booster

 

 

 

White Pearl Illuminating Essence

 

 

White Pearl Illuminating Cream

 

Initially, I was a little confused as to the sequence of the products usage, because I’d thought booster is something similar to essence and I’m quite sure they are meant to be used together in 1 skin care regime, 1 after another.

So after cleansing my face and applying toner, I applied the skin booster followed by the essence and lastly, the cream. I hope this sequence is correct though.

Nevertheless, here are my reviews and ratings.

Skin booster :

Raves

  1. It’s differs from the essence as it is made up of thick liquid
  2. Absorbs well into the skin
  3. Doesn’t leave any white residue

Rants 

  1. It’s a tad too thick and sticky for my skin type
  2. Bottle is made of glass
  3. Difficult to pour it out as it doesn’t have a nozzle spray

Essence :

Raves

  1. Lighter than booster and feels light on skin
  2. Easy to carry around and hold as bottle is much smaller than booster’s
  3. Nozzle spray allows easier usage
  4. Not sticky, doesn’t leave any white residue

Rants

None at the moment

Cream :

Raves

  1. Small open bottle, easy to carry around. Perfect for travelling.
  2. Doesn’t leave any white residue

Rants

  1. Kinda too creamy

Overall review : It’s a little too oily for me, perhaps I would try them out separately in the future. Too much stuffs applied on my face. Feels ‘heavy’ on my face. But face looks clarified. Whitening effect not instant so I guess the products must be applied consistently. For those with combination or oily skin type, you may wanna reduce or use them separately, as in if you use the booster, maybe you can just apply the essence. Or if you apply the cream, skip the booster, because these 2 are the thickest liquids of all and logically, richest as well.

Overall rating :

If you have been wanting to try out Secret Key’s products, visit Secret Key’s shop at Qoo10 now! They carry other series such as the the snail+EGF Repairing Series, NEW Stem cell Multi Triple BB Cream,  Nutrition Cream and  Pore Brush as well!

Happy shopping at Qoo10 with Secret Key today! 😀

A little update on my hauls over the weekend

I don’t usually shop at retail stores unless really necessary, for example, to get stuffs from convenience stores. 

Shopped over at GMarket, otherwise now known as Qoo10, and bought these items (and more to come! =x)

This seller on gmarket provides very efficient delivery and all items were packed nicely and bubble wrapped for the eyeliners, to prevent any breakage. 

Have been wanting to try out nu bra for the longest time but decided to get the newer version of the bra with adhesive sides. It has sticky sides but I wonder how effective it is and whether it would slip off any moment while wearing it. Also, cleaning it seems to be a little problematic as well as it might lose its stickiness? It came with a free underwear too and it was a G-String pls -.-

Anyway, tried out some swatches of the eyeliners (Silver, white copper and black). The silver being the lightest and faintest didn’t excite me at all. Am loving the white and black one best. White ones are perfect for brightening your eye rims (the inner corners of your eyes near your tear ducts) and black ones are awesome for a little rugged look for smokey eyes. Would definitely post up an entry on these eyeliners when I get a chance to use them.

And yes, bought the black double eyelid tapes again! Really awesome! Even my colleague commented that I look different with them and that they are nice 🙂 Got it cheaper compared to the previous seller on GMarket.

Heh, definitely 2 thumbs up for this seller!

You guys can start shopping away at this shop : http://www.qoo10.sg/shop/wow_wild?goodscode=405256939#ci 

Out damn Monday Blues! Now, begone! 

ENJOY SHOPPING! 😀
