Review: Online shopping -


I love to shop online. There, I said it. What's not to love? You don't have to - drive or find a cab to get to the mall, fight through crowds, browse endless shops or contend with annoying salespeople. Products are made available to you in the comfort of your own home or office and they'll be delivered right to your doorstep. To me, this is the way to shop! I, personally, hate window shopping these days. They can be such a hassle, especially when you have the family in tow and time is of the essence! Since I've been doing quite a bit of online shopping of late, I thought I'd share some of my experiences with all of you on this blog.

Today, I'd like to review a Malaysian web store called You may have noticed their advertisement banner flashing on the top-right corner of this blog at some point. That's how I learnt about them, through a Nuffnang ad on my own blog! 

I was first attracted to because their website is attractive and user friendly, their products look good, their prices are reasonable AND they offer FREE shipping! Yay! To test out the store, I ordered a quirky orange-coloured rice scoop in the shape of a squirrel, a few months back. Before I knew it, the rice scoop was sitting on my desk. 

Since I was pleased with the first delivery, more recently, I decided to buy a few household items. See below:

While I was checking out, however, I noticed something wasn't quite right. The system was charging me RM65 for shipping to West Malaysia, when shipping should be free. I found their contact number on the site and gave them a call. The guy I spoke to, Sham, was very nice. He helped me find out why there was this additional shipping cost and later told me that I had helped them out because I made them aware of a minor glitch in their system.

Anyway, soon the matter was resolved and my items were shipped promptly. I ordered my stuff the day before yesterday and they arrived at my office this morning. My colleagues were so impressed by the knives I had ordered for a friend that they wanted some too :)

Overall, I'm happy with's products and delivery, so I'd happily recommend them to you. Right now, their range of products is rather limited, so I hope they will be adding more stuff soon. That way, we can shop for lots of stuff "under one roof" :) 

PS: If you haven't tried online shopping, give it a whirl, it's so convenient!
