OK. Due to loads of constraints in this free version of wordpress, I’ve decided to update only to my blogspot from now on.

Easy Mind

IMG00175-20100225-1241 
These days, I prefer not to be alone so much. Alone means having more time to think. And the mind wanders, sometimes beyond what needs to be wandered.

And I’ve learnt that not all that your mind wander should be spoken out, no matter how innocent you may think it is. Just because your mind does not reflect someone else’s, and the possibility is high to be translated too differently.

I know I am getting to where I want to, and to get to it is never easy – the ease of mind.

Have a nice weekend y’all! I know I would!

p.s. A blurry photo of me and a colleague from last week’s lunch; the only latest one I have. Thought it has been some time since I last posted a pic. 😉

Ouch!

I’m not sure about you, but I consider myself on the ‘hairy’ side, thus I do have to do the necessary to make myself hair-less at *ehem* certain parts of my body.

I’ve waxed, shaved, threaded, tweezed… and the thing about waxing and threading is you can’t get it done at the comfort of your own home. Yes, you can do waxing at home, but it takes some effort and not as effective as getting it done at the salon. How effective can it be when at every stroke you’d cringe and decided not to pull the wax strips properly to avoid the pain? And yes, I usually get the itchy after-effect that usually lasts several days too.

Shaving is much easier, but the hair that grows back won’t be as fine as when you waxed or tweezed. Or so they say.

And tweezing the underarms really gives you neck pain, no? 😀

So a few months ago I decided to invest in an epilator, as above. That’s the exact model I bought. It can be used in the shower, cordless and is rechargeable. A little bit on the pricey side compare to other epilators, but I do think the cordless and rechargeable features are essential.

The verdict? You still need to cringe every time you epilate but you’d get used to it. After several attempts, the pain is not as bad as the previous (maybe because the hair that grows back is finer already).  Sometimes the epilation won’t be as smooth because it really depends on how long your hair is at the time, and I am still on a trial and error mode as when is the best time to epilate. But most of the time, it does its job well, and I am one satisfied customer. The best part is you can do it anytime, and if you’re like me who needs to really plan time to go to the salon, it’s really a heaven-sent!

Now I only need to visit the salon for threading of my eyebrows and upper lips, which does not need frequent visits at all!

p.s. I still need courage to epilate the bikini line though. Ouch!

The Summary

Let’s just summarize this time :

I’m on a 5-days detox with only fruits & vege, the USANA nutrimeal, with loads of water. It’s only my 2nd day, and I hope the day will go by quicker. Haha. Am actually chanting to myself I’ve been eating all my life, 5 days should be OK.

Mr. Hubs is away again for 2 days, and not too far this time.

Imtiyaz is now in his lazy-to-go-to-school mode. Will ask what day is it every single day, followed with the same line, “must go to school?” everytime.

We finally managed to have a taste of the yummylicious satay at Satay Station last weekend, after several failed attempts (tutupla, kuah habisla, etc.). Went to the branch at Mont Kiara, and true enough the satays were delicious!

I had my first 100 balls at the driving range last weekend and that made me several shades darker already. Can’t imagine myself in the course!

Went to Hari Kraf Kebangsaan 2010 at Kompleks Kraf, Jalan Conlay last weekend, and did some damage to my wallet again. But of course, the batiks (especially the pareos & kaftans) were much cheaper than outside, so why not?

My sister in law’s getting married in 10 days time, and I’m still not sure which baju to wear on which day. Funny thing is, I still can’t contact the person doing the beadworks for my top until today, so am not sure if it will be ready in time. I definitely need backup!

Mr. Hubs said I should treat myself to nasi lemak after 5 days detoxifying myself. Maybe I would. 😉

Will be having 2 potential buyers to view the apartment this weekend.

I had my first taste of yee sang at a colleague’s farewell lunch last week, and I kinda like it.

I am craving for mendy rice with lamb/chicken at Al-Diafah right now.

Semen what?!

Homely Amoi gave me this link and not surprisingly it does wonders to curb my appetite today.

I’d rather try a cement recipe than that!

Of Bad Customer Service, najjah.com

My intention is not to give bad name to the people involved, just my way to voice out my frustration with their customer service – since my email requesting better service was not taken seriously. In Malaysia, if things are not mentioned publicly, customers are always on the losing side.

It was my 2nd time ordering inners from Najjah.com. The first time, the transaction went smooth eventhough I was not very happy with the one answering the emails. She was not courteous at all both times, no words of thank you for purchasing, even after receiving the payments. Please and thank yous were unheard of from them both times I ordered.

Second time around, one of the items I received was not what I ordered. I emailed them, requesting them to send me the right one. Yes, the item was marked as what I ordered so the flaws as what they claimed is on the production side. But of course, as a customer, I don’t care about what goes on behind the scene, right? I only should care about what I ordered, and what I should get.

Guess what they asked me to do? The email said, since the item that was wrongly sent costs RM5 more expensive than what I ordered (yes, the stuff doesn’t even cost more than RM20, mind you!) they ask me to send it back to them, then they’ll send me the correct item. I mean, I wouldn’t mind going through the hassle of sending the item back if it was my fault, or if I wanted to exchange or what-not. But it’s fully their fault and the cost is not THAT much, and they still expect me to do things for them… d-uhh!! The least they could do, if they really want the RM5-more-expensive-item back, is just send somebody to come and collect it from me since the owner lives near my place anyway. And yes, again, not even a word of please or sorry from them.

So Najjah.com, I hope you know customer service is what makes a product stand out from the rest. I’m not sure if I’ll be buying from you again, but I hope your service gets better with time so that other people won’t experience the same. Trust me, I’m not the only one complaining. I’ve heard several. And I’m sure there are people who prefers to keep mum or refuse to bother their minds over matters like this, so you are lucky with them. The least you could do for now, is to write much courteous emails to your customers, since that would not cost you another extra RM5 anyway.

p.s. Everytime I ordered, I wasn’t ordering only 1 piece of the item, I actually ordered 7 to 8 items each time. The last email I sent stating I malas nak layan their policy and decided to just give away the wrongly sent inner which I did not like/ordered to someone else (sedekah lagi bagus), they did not even reply that email. Eksyen tak eksyen?

Madness

We knew roaming charges could get really steep but we weren’t ready when it comes to a country not so commonly visited, unless work related. Uncommon definitely means extra money. Yes, we were aware of the charges by the local provider, but the charges by the visited country is the vague one.

A 3 minute call costs more than RM100 and a 13 minutes call is more than RM400. Madness! I could very much use the money for at least 2 pairs of shoes!

But because of my condition at that time, Mr. Hubs had no choice but to call several times to check. Until I am a bit stabilized, we resorted to skype calls to his hotel room (since his hotel room had no free internet access), and kept to only text messages during the day when he’s working.

Come to think of it, I’d rather pay a little bit of a bomb, with known fact one is within reach at anytime. At least until a certain limit I can afford lah, of course. Also, I’d rather not mention the total damage done. Not just 2, I could actually get __ pairs!! (feel free to fill in the blank)

Bunyi macam nak sedapkan hati sendiri tak? *sigh*
