Customer Service

went out to look for a radio,
was in a shop when I saw this from Akira

I was very tempted, it was going at $45. Talked alittle to the shop assistant in the presence of the boss.

Then thought maybe I should go around a little more.

Went to get dinner, then came back. Thought ya, probably should just buy this and get it over and done with. (When customers comes back, it probably means they want to buy something from you.)

Asked for a new set rather than the display one, can sense that the boss is not happy.
Didnt care, I’m the one paying after all.

The shop assistant briefly mention the content and wanted to pack it away,
I ask for them to test it.

They plug it in, reception came on, it was noisy needed tuning,
I noticed that the LCD display is not showing anything,
So I mention that to them.

The shop assistant tried to look for buttons and things that they might have forgotten to press,
the boss said “aiya, its like that one la, probably you have to tune it to the correct channel then it will appear on the LCD display.”

I refuse to believe that, so I mention to get me another set instead.

So the shop assistant reached out and wanted to get another box, but the boss set, “use the display set will do”

We went through the same process of tuning, it still doesnt appear on the LCD display, but when they switch to the CD mode briefly I noticed the indication no CD. So alright, the LCD display works. I just let the shop assistant continue toying around, cos they havent give me a solution.

Then the lady boss said. ” I already say, cos the radio doesnt recognize all the channel mah, must wait for the correct tuning.”

I was very upset when I hear that,
When she said that, I made up my mind not to buy from her.

Why?

Lousy customer service.

I handle 30 kids, I dont feel irritated, but this 1 lady, :D
You know its bad.

But nevermind~ I went on and found something interesting~


Say hello to my new 5.5″ TBo + Radio~

:D

Felt “a y not, small tv in my room. Sometimes when timing is tight, but I really wanna know, hear whats on tv, this would do fine. And I’ve got radio too.”

Its Black and White, but come on, with all that huge, flat tv out there, this is gonna be an antique soon enough. :D
Classic stuff. *wOoT!

If I really want to see color, just go to the living room~

hey hey, bought it at $56.

Yes, Ms Ng dont mind spending money, but Ms Ng mind bad service.

*feels wrong to say Be Bless here… dunno why.
anyhow,

Love,

Laziness…

Laziness is…
when you play dead on your bed though the clock is ticking…

Laziness is…
when you wanna just sit there and do nothing…

Laziness is…
sitting by the window watching the cars goes by…

Laziness is…
having a food and yet not eat it…

Laziness is…
when you fulfill any 2 of the above through just 1 click.

:D

who said lazy is a bad thing?
I beg to differ.

B&J – A Cookie Affair

Went to get Ben & Jerry from the nearby SPC recently,
2 tubs at $22.40


Bought my usual New York Chunk and tot of trying the new A Cookie Affair, ate a little that night and hand over it to my mom.

Normally, within about 5 to 7mins, my mom would call out to me to send it to the fridge,

but that night, it didnt happen that way. :D
About 15mins into it, I shout out from my room, “Mom, are you done?”
She replied, “Why lei?”

:D

I walked over with the cover and then sent it to the fridge. It was about only half left…

I was O_O … I ate at most 1/7 of it… n it is now 1/2 ...

then the next day, in the night, reach home around 11pm+
only 1/7 is left…

so… my mom finish almost 2/3 of it in 2 nights…
O_O
not that my mom loves to eat ice-cream.
But I think it has its appeal.

Vanilla Ice Cream as a whole, which is not too sweet, with Chocolate Chip cookie – the normal brown color with black spots kind.
and chocolate chocolate chip – the black color cookie with black spots kind.

so when u scoop, u get the vanilla, the brown cookie, the black cookie
n chocolate swirl as well.
(like u know raspberry ripple ice-cream the kind of swirl)

Aiya, say so much, u go n buy and try. not the lick lick kind. but literally scoop and chew kind.*sHiOk!

Yup, mummy says to buy a tub for her next time. :D

Lookie Lookie here~

On the side note,
did u know, theres a Ben and Jerry Graveyard out there? :D

Tramp Stamp

Happen to be reading an article on tattoo and came upon this term, “Tramp Stamp”

My, theres a meaning to it, in fact its a label.

From Urban Dictionary,

2. tramp stamp
“Tramp Stamp” is a derogatory term referring to a tattoo which a women places on her lower back. It is especially popular among women born in the late 70’s, 80‘s, and even early 90’s. Fair or unfair, these tattoos have a socially constructed connotation associated with them. These women are labeled as tramps, whores, or other derogatory sexually promiscuous terms. Although these are often bias generalized claims, there have been sociological studies done by the American Psychological Association, Federal Bureau of Prisons, and other demographic researchers showing strong correlative evidence associating tattoos with high risk behavior, illegal substance abuse and sexual promiscuity. These risk factors are greatest in the age range which these types of tattoos are gaining main stream popularity. Some have also jokingly stated that by 2050, the “tramp stamp” will be renamed the “gramp stamp”.
Those chicks with tramp stamps are the kinds of girls you take home to bang. Don’t get into relationships with them because they are often immature gold digging sluts who sleep with everyone. Oh yeah, make sure you use a rubber because you don’t want to end up with chlamydia trachoma (which 1 in 20 women have between the ages of 14-39 according to the center of disease control… probably much higher if they have a tramp stamp considering the scientific coloration between sluttiness and tramp stamps). Also, if they pop out a baby (which they often do), they may have issues getting epidurals through their tattoos in the lower back.

Irreplaceable cvr on Apps

Got this video from

krisandro krisandro Oh wow….. http://bit.ly/dBXs4P

wah, didnt know that iPhone can do this as well. o_O

Its actually Beyonce’s Irreplaceable cover using the apps.

wat caught me was her command of language actually.

The video started with her speaking something short and then she press press her 1st iPhone,

then again,

then she went to d 2nd iPhone, said “A sharp” then did a somewhat strumming motion. thats when I realize, O! shes giving instruction!! :D

k, so it went on.

Then she started singing Beyonce’s Irreplaceable

I was like, O_O WAH! Her english not bad ar, dont see her korean korean. hmm…

:D

Enjoy this video.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HK15Fwho6Ys&hl=en_US&fs=1&]

then I got curious, went to click her GaGa one.

Hmm…

:D

Indeed, Pronunciation can be learnt.(even if its just for that 1 song)
Even Bernard Shaw came up with Literature about it. Think “My Fair Lady”

But shes good regardless, the talents within, its not everyone that can sing and strum at the same thing.

One thing she can do is to throw her voice when she hits the high notes rather than breathe in. the part that goes “another you in a minute”

Oh ya, no doubt, shes very pretty! :D

Enjoy!

On the side note, this song is actually suppose to be a Country song, then Beyonce came by and co-write it and change it to a Girl Power song. :)

Sakura Family Restaurant

Went for lunch with a few friends the other day, through the suggestion of @calvintimo

Went to Sakura Family Restaurant near Raffles City.
It was a… Thai, Chinese restaurant that incidentally had Wonder Girl’s Nobody on loop. :D *oki, with a FEW other songs in between.

It was oki :)

I had Vegetable and Seafood soup cos of the sore throat so didnt dare to experiment too much. :D


This is their Pineapple rice which @sidneyreuben loves the floss

HongKong Horfun which @mhisham loved the gravy

and their… thai fried rice…

hmm… :D
Food for thought really. :D

and I went for KFC Egg Tart after that. :D

I’m not really an egg tart lover, and I dont really eat eggs, so…
Anyway, I do think that it has to be eaten warm or it’ll fall flat.

:)
