I didn't even meant to be heading in blogspot today but i did, all in the name of C-L-A-R-I-N-D-A
you are powerful lah and i bet Rodman will be jealous, i pamper you too well
Today i will blog a little about the recent most purchase on taobao. the platform to place order is 65daigou.com; this is a underrated website that deserve much more compliment. One thing for sure, they are absolutely efficient & service oriented. i have been using this platform for all my taobao shopping so far & man, they never failed.
So i had my biggest purchase placed thus far, not exactly the most expensive but it was bulky alright. In it are mostly stuff meant for the big RodKris day, the items we've gotten are miscellaneous stuff meant for decor. here are the list.. note that i have not make the trip down to collect the parcel in person, but i bet i wont be disappointed.
Mummy's online haul
My Mum is seriously catching up on the online shopping heat faster than anyone i know of. After learning how she could click & send items to the shopping cart (much to my dismay, because i didnt really use the direct taobao web to make my purchase, so after she send her items to the shopping cart, it's my responsibility to remove them & replace the items into my 65daigou shopping cart instead... ), she hadnt stop clicking. This is her second shopping experience with 65daigou & i am saying with confidence she'll probably order more of the exact items if she can. Mummy has very exact taste when it comes to phone accessories/ fashion sense. Basically anything that "blings" or comes with lace is to her liking... here are her haul this round
Cost of cover SGD$3.96 + shipping $0.20
yeah, absoutely no surprise, she would have bling up her new Samsung S5, having talk about it for weeks.
and if this is not enough, remember some people have phone that requires a wardrobe change ever so often
Cost of cover is sgd$10.20 + shipping cost $0.70
My mum's phone is cooler than yours, and mine, and many of us... we have ALL under-estimated the combined power of a raging adult who needs all the "bling" in the world hahah....
AND... you tot that was all Mum bought? No way k... along all the other clothing for her precious phone.. there should be one cover that ensure she can don them on & carry them while she walks/shop right?
Cost of cover+handbag sgd$10.20 + Shipping cost $0.80
The next thing to carrying a handbag is to buy a mini handbag for your precious phone ah..
My mum, my mum.. sometimes i think of her and me very differently.. haha..ITs no surprise Kristi takes after her pretty well.. and i.. not so much.. i think i might have pick up my Dad's simplicity much more...
Apart from these she also bought 2 nude bra, which i find it censored & redundant to post the picture here. Her purpose of buying TWO sets of nude Bra was so it could match her new dress on RodKris big day , along with the dress that was made to measure to bling & blind everyone... please look forward to that haha..
- Cost of nude bra sgd$6.02 + shipping $1.10
- Cost of nude bra 2 sgd$6.02 + shipping $0.45
Wedding related purchase
So we've got the preparation pretty much settled, gotten some DIY done last week & the result is so pretty!!~ Not gonna show them here so we can assemble them on the actual day, i am looking forward to seeing everyone's reaction when we put the phototable together.
First up, is the table runner
Cost of table runner sgd$12.70 + shipping $9.05
i;ve placed order for 4 metres of the runner as it was cheap at the beginning, when it was time for shipment i realise the weight of the cloth is unexpectedly heavy, thus resulting in the high cost. Didnt really expect to be paying this amount for the table runner as we've already gotten the ones provided by our wedding planner.. Either case, the fact that the cloth are heavy probably means it's made of good material? I dunno.. but its a huge decision to completely replace the existing phototable concept with a Nautical Strip cloth dont you think? I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will look alright..
Then again, once the wedding is over, i hope to make full use of this table runner, sewing them into sofa cushion. pretty sure they will compliment any leather sofa or villa theme style house. It wouldnt go to waste.... or will it? haha
I've ordered some photoframes & intend to place them neatly on the phototable, thus getting rid of displaying just some wedding album like how we see others doing..
Cost of 3 photoframes, about 7inch height each, total to sgd$14.50 + shipping cost $15.20
All of them look really pretty but i only manage to pick 3, and thank God i did becasue the cost of shipping was unusually high, though i should have know better since they are made of porcelain clay & relatively heavier in weight... Then again, frames are reusable & perhaps one fine day i can ship them to Clar when its her time to get hitch.. the frames will look really good on wedding decor & definitely suit Clar's Germany house with all that english decor & landscape lah.. overall good purchase i dare say..
Next, nearer to wedding dates we will likely start the trend of pasting almost everything in sight with the 喜 sticker, and lucky us manage to find a vendor who was selling them at an amazing price
Cost of sticker was sgd$2.05 + shipping cost $0.15 for 140 stickers
omg.. dont play play k.. ONE HUNDRED & FORTY STICKERS for only less than $2.50.. Imma use to paste EVERYTHING lah.. if unused i will pass it onto the next wedding couple.. super saver good deal.. call me the deal man!!~
And like that's not enough, we previously shipped in a special red packet for the gate crash & this time we manage to shop for a pretty red packet for the big day..
Cost of ALOT pieces of ang pow packet for sgd$4.06 + shipping cosy $1.35
i honestly am thinking twice if i should be revealing all of this on my blog. but then again, only those who are still closely in contact with me bothers to head back here for some updates.. so there you have, absolutely happy to find another amazing deal to secure so many pretty red packets at a low cost.. i think i am in awe at myself.. i should seriously consider helping people plan their wedding at a low cost for a minimal fee man.. this shopping deal is MY thing lah haha..
and then you will be shock at my next purchase, man i have no idea what i am doing sometime..
Behold, the mother of all tulle
cost of skirt sgd$9.35 + shipping cost $1.35
yeah right, this is for wedding.. what WAS I THINKING? hahaha
but i was thinking straight i promise you.. i had the silliest idea to make this works, and mind you this is for the bride - yours Truly..
That's it, Kristal is wearing a tulle, for all the donkey years you thought you knew me, you dunno me better.. Are you lost friends? Are you thinking straight & wondering if Kristal is no longer the Kristal you thought she was? I dunno man, i am seeing another side of me.. strangely eerily creepy side of me jumping out haha..
Some other small details most wil missed out
Cost of signage sgd$10.00 + shipping cost$4.70
Lastly, as with all wedding comes the huge bed every couple buy for their wedding as a form of blessing to last till the hair turns white..
cost of bedsheet sgd$53.05 + cost of shipping $11.90
i know how you are thinking this is on the pricier side, but mind you the material is one of the softest in the market i've felt.. and i know better because i saw the same item , again selling at one of those wedding designated store & it would cost me a whopping $120 off the rack!) Nevertheless i had the change to touch the material & i was SOLD!!! Isnt it the sleekiest most cool & un-traditional wedding bedsheet you can find around? bbb & i got them in the shades of Navy & grey btw.. definetely not your usual red & red & red wedding sheets.. i love this purchase, definitely worthwhile!!~
And with that note, we sum up another one of those wedding related purchase we;ve made.. the bulk of this shipment comes from the wedding stuff, currently amounting to like almost 10kg of the overall weight already.. Then there is the other smaller personal purchase that will attract you more.. wait till u see what i bought (heeheehee)..
Boring Rodman & his tech savy interest resulted in this super cute mouse that we are both hoping will be useful

Save your comment friends, i am hopeless. and not regreting a single bit.. i am drying myself in Hello Kitty, like it or not.. haha
Cost of dress sgd$15.60 + shipping cost $1.30
Ok i regretted buying this.. and its just like one of those piles of other things i regretted buying.. the cost plus the shipping.. i am regretful.. i took less than 2 min before carting out from 65daigou to squeeze this in.. and i honestly regretted it.. too overpriced & now that i am seeing it.. why did i click that "add to cart" button? :*****(
this girl damn liao-liu... she saw this dress i;ve gotten & likes it alot.. at first i tot i can head back to the same seller & purchased them cheap. Unfortunately she has ran out of the stock & in the end Paperstop INSIST i purcahse it from another seller.. slightly more ex.. but i know to this girl she will definitely think it is super worth it
Cost of dress sgd$15.60 + shipping cost $2.30
