Shit Express - Sending a Shit Parcel to your enemies

I came across this one week back and had wanted to blog about it so much (IT'S SERIOUSLY TOO FUNNY NOT TO!)
This company will NEVER make it to my list of sponsors. 

Behold' - The SHIT Express!!!


So what is the Shit Express?!

In a nutshell, YOU dislike/detest/hate a certain someone..
You engage Shit Express's services.
And Shit Express will deliver shit to that enemy of yours. Tsk. Poor thing.



Here are the steps:

1) Choose an animal.
2) Provide the address information
3) Choose how to wrap the shit package
4) Pay with bitcoins or Paypal. (So you won't be traced...you see)


HAHAHA. Is this a joke, or what?!

Apparently, someone actually experimented its service and placed an order for himself.
It did arrived, as described!!


Read here for more details:

Well... To any possible hater of mine - Watch out. A shit parcel may be on its way.

[Review] WheeloveSpree - Overseas Online shopping made easy!!!

If you are a mega online shopaholic like me, I suppose you would have heard of shopping sites such as Taobao, Amazon, etc.
(In case you haven't, those are overseas shopping sites)

Yes, many of the items are SO, SO superbly and unbelievably cheap  that it is IMPOSSIBLE not to be tempted. Unfortunately, it wasn't really an easy process trying to ship them over and the shipping fees would easily cost more than the items themselves.  It didn't help that online transactions can be a real hassle, and some sellers stubbornly DO NOT ship to Singapore despite how badly I wanted to purchase items from them. *(#*$()#*$

*starts hurling vulgarities*


"WHY AREN'T THOSE SELLERS BASED IN SINGAPORE?!?! WHY??!" I would often ask myself in agony.

I have wished for a simpler solution to these.
....


It was not until I heard of agent services that seem to be the best solution for struggling shoppers like me.
 I just simply have to make direct payment to the agent via local banking and they will take care of the processes.
In other words, they act as a local middleman by helping me to purchase the items and have them shipped over to me safe and sound. It's like having someone to oversee and take care of my overseas transaction!!

Honestly, I had my doubts and reservations initially as I wasn't sure if everything was as easy as it sounded. I felt it was important for me to find out how it works.
As the saying goes, "You never try, you never know", right?

I have put one such agent service to the test - So now ... Let's see.

This review is based on my personal experience and I have attempted to record down my processes (from Day 1 when I placed my orders to the day I received my package)




When I entered the site, the first thing I did was to study how the flow works. Apparently, it seemed easy.
Here's an illustration chart they came up with on their site:


I was damn excited when I came to know that they are able to provide shipping from various countries as well (China, U.S, Taiwan, Korea, Japan...) I need not worry about the limitations of sellers, too! 
Being a frequent Taobao window-shopper, I decided to shop for my loots there through WheeloveSpree and see how it would go.

Personally, I would come up with shopping lists and make multiple purchases so that they can be shipped together at one shot. It's more worth it this way as its like combined shipping!

After much browsing around the site (I almost fainted from all the chinese words), I decided to get a MP3 player (for my dad), microSD card and 3 apparels.

So the next step... Entering order details on the agent site, WheeloveSpree
The instructions listed on their site are pretty clear and clear-cut. 
Just ensure that you enter your details correctly!


My item order details - I entered my 4 items accordingly into the list.


After submission of my orders (I was quite excited at this point), I received an e-mail on the same day with the calculated cost.
 I love it how everything appears to be so simple and transparent - I could see clearly what I was paying for. 


The stated SGD78.41 was considered my first amount to be transferred to WheeloveSpree as part of my purchase confirmation. 
I guess it somehow acts like a deposit. 

Afterwhich, they would proceed to place my orders with the merchants and all I needed to do was to SIT BACK AND WAIT FOR MY ITEMS TO BE ON THEIR WAY!! =D 

I waited for approximately 2 weeks (can't be blamed as my items were all from different China merchants and I guess it probably took time for those deliveries before they were eventually sent to Singapore)

When I was informed that my items were finally on their way, I was so thrilled.
And YES, did I mention that WheeloveSpree has one of the best customer services ever?!
I received a revised calculation of the total cost via e-mail indicating that I have overpaid during my first payment and I would be refunded accordingly.

(If let's say my first payment was underpaid, I would be required to top up. BUT since I paid more than I should during the estimated calculation of my first payment, I would get a refund.) 

I was shown the breakdown of final cost: - 
(As I had indicated my bank account details in the order form earlier, WheeloveSpree would be transferring my refund to it)

A trustworthy agent, I would say!

So it all boils down to anticipating the arrival of my items now!

 The delivery guy finally arrived on a Sunday (I opted for Home Delivery). 

AND HERE IT IS!!! You have came a long way, baby!
*squeals like an excited little girl*


Even though I already knew what were contained in the package, I was still feeling anxious. 
Slowly and steadily, I unwrapped the package to reveal its contents.
.
.
.
Perfect condition and exactly what I expected!



WheeloveSpree namecard!
I love their tagline as it is indeed true: Shopping Just One Click Away.


Since I am not writing a review for the items I have purchased from Taobao (I am only reviewing the agent services of WheeloveSpree), I shall not go into details of the quality of items. Even if I were to write about it, I have to say that they are indeed in great condition nonetheless!

I would say that it is a positive experience using WheeloveSpree's services (Just so you know, it was my FIRST time and I am really glad everything turned out so well).

Looking back at how I used to have headache of overseas online shopping, I am amazed how simple and hassle-free the whole process has became after engaging their services.
Why didn't I know about them earlier?! It would have saved me tons of trouble!!

I feel that such services have improved the lives of online shopaholics so much, especially if you are one who isn't really familiar how to shop on Taobao or other overseas websites. Imagine those language barriers!

The amount of web shops they support is really amazing - You can check them out on their website. It's like most of the well-known web shops are listed there!




I have had friends asking me how to shop on Taobao before, so there - One of the best solutions I have found so far. I am reviewing its services through my real-life experience, so you can be rest assured about its credibility.
When have I ever lied to anyone on my blog before anyway huh?!?! I always share the good stuff! :)

Thank you,  WheeloveSpree ,for taking such good care of my purchases and providing me efficient customer service - There is nothing I can complain here. 
Now I know who to look for when it comes to future online shopping sprees!

AND YES, my dear readers... here's a little perk - WheeloveSpree has kindly agreed to come up with a special discount code just for my readers!!

 It will definitely come in handy if you are intending to try out their services which I think you should!!

Here's the discount code you can use when entering your details in the Order Form:

CAT1019


You will receive a $2 OFF Agent Fee for your first purchase!

For Malaysians, you will receive RM 5.00 OFF Agent Fee for your first purchase!

[Event] Domino’s '4 Flavors on 2 Pizzas' Blogger Party

Guess where I was?
...
.......
..........



Yes! It's Domino's Pizza at Kovan! :)
Was honored to be invited to the Domino's '4 Flavors on 2 Pizzas' Blogger Party event last week  (Thanks, William from The Influencer Network!)
I was quite excited as Domino's Pizza has always been one of my personal favorites whenever it comes to pizzas (I love their thin crusts!) and was looking forward to what they have to offer.
Do note that I am not complimenting them because I was invited, but I do love their pizzas personally and patronize them myself quite frequently!

So.. *inserts random selfie here*


While waiting for the other bloggers to arrive, I went on a photo-snapping spree.


Here's the banner of their latest promotion -You will get to know more about it in my entry as you read on! You won't regret it, I promise!


Here's the lovely Ms.Linda, the Marketing Manager of Domino's Pizza!
(It was my 2nd time meeting her after my first Domino's Pizza event last year)



She gave us a briefing about their latest promotion - 2 for $22 pizza!

Now, this is really interesting as this is not just any ordinary promotion.
 Can you believe that combining TWO different flavors of pizzas to form a complete pizza of your choice is POSSIBLE?! Speaking about win-win situation. Heh.

Seriously, this would be a dream come true for any pizza lover when it comes to being spoilt for choices. 
Ever had those moments in which you JUST COULD NOT decide between two different flavors? 
That's it... That's IT!
Domino's Pizza has came up with this genius idea of allowing their customers to mix and match four flavors of their choice (2 flavors on 1 pizza each) at a price of only $22 for both regular-sized pizzas!

Best of all, they are offering FREE delivery - meaning that the price you see is the price you'll pay. I love it that they have no hidden gimmicks when it comes to stuff like these.



With a pizza theme, there was a game prepared for us (It was quite a good ice-breaker for bloggers who did not know each other well) and here's the first round - We have to make a correct guess of the pizza sauce according to the names written on the post-it notes.

We were split into different teams and one representative of each team would have to taste the sauce.
(Thanks to Vivian - one of the bloggers whom I was in the same group with - for tasting it and making the correct guess!)


Here's what we have got:


Yep - Pesto Passion Sauce!
(I know it doesn't look really that appetizing by the looks of it, but trust me - looks can be deceiving!)


Now... Here's another round of the game and the fun part - We were given different choices of pizza crusts and ingredients that would go well with our chosen Pesto Passion Sauce. 
We had to choose two different kinds (Half and Half) and combine them together.

We would then come up with a creative story (it can be anything - funny, romantic, cheesy... etc) and the winning team would be given Domino's vouchers worth $500!! This would make any Domino's fan go crazy. Urgh.


"So who will be the lucky winner of these $500 Domino's Pizza vouchers?"


And the representative of an interesting team would be given an exclusive "I am Incredible" apron designed by Domino's Pizza!! And it was said that this is the ONE and ONLY apron that was designed for this event!! How proud the winner would be to own this!!



So.. With a determination to win them.. Here we go.

We discussed and came up with a chicken + prawn love story (It was quite random actually.. but had fun laughing over it while making it up). And I have to EMPHASIZE that I am proud to have Melissa in our group - She is such a great illustrator! She drew the story in comic-strip form and made many of us going "awww" just by looking at the characters.


Took this shot secretly while she was at work - It reminds me so much of an artist at a live session drawing for fans. Hahaha. It's a surprising fact when she told us that she isn't a professional at art.



So.. Time for our "story presentation"!
Vivan presented our story in a bubbly manner.
(I was only a supporting cast. LOL)

And here is the masterpiece!
Notice the top wordings "CaVaMel"? It is an adaptation of our names : CAtherine,Vivian and MELissa
Credits to Vivian for coming up with such a genius name. Haha.



And here are the presentations of other teams :- Everyone came up with really interesting and hilarious ones! It was amazing, especially with the fact that we were given such a short time frame to come up with it. Bloggers are always creative creatures, I guess.

Hey, that's a nice shot!

I love the one that was presented below! Notice the famous James Bond sign? Yes, they came up with their own version of "James Prawn" story!



And...They eventually emerged as the winning team! Congrats, Dee! :)

Here's the winner who won the "I am Incredible" apron: -



Thank you Domino's Pizza for hosting the event and having us - and not forgetting that we had such a fulfilling stomach after the event.




What a feast!!



Kinda' hungry just by looking at these photos I took (and its in the middle of the night as I am blogging this! Damn, I hear my stomach grumbling now.... Oh no...)



(Photo Credits to The Influencer Network)

Oh Yes - Here's an example of how a half-half pizza would look like - So interesting right?!
Now you can get to enjoy two different flavors at one go! I REALLY LOVE THIS COMBINATION.


And oh, OH! Here's something I would like to EMPHASIZE on because it is my all-time favorite. In fact, I have been going around and introducing it to all my friends - even guaranteeing them that they will love it as much as I do.
Believe me - You HAVE to try at least once in your lifetime.

Ready...?

Yes... It's their classic CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE. GOSH #*&$(#&$#!!


I tried so much to take a good photograph of the lava cake - Even went to the extent of inserting my spoon into it to dig out the warm, heavenly chocolate content.



Ok ok, here.. A closer look at it. Can you FEEL it? Soft, warm chocolate cake that literally melts in your mouth...


It was quite a highlight too as many bloggers attempted to get good shots of the lava cake as well. 


And... To express my love for the chocolate lava cake, I took up this sign and posed with it.
Woohooo!~ Make me the Chocolate lava cake ambassador!! LOL.


Here's a group photo of all the bloggers who attended the event: THANKS SO MUCH TO DOMINO'S PIZZA and THE INFLUENCER NETWORK for inviting us!! I had so much fun!!
