If you like accessories and sunglasses, try buying them from I used to like their sunglasses so  much that I could buy many at one go. I started buying from them when their old site was named They have designers brands like - “Dior” , “Armani” etc looking glasses at US$5 or even lesser! But the disadvantage about buying these glasses is that you do not get to try on them. I bought 4 pairs for myself two years ago and a pair for my hubby. I am still using all 4 pairs today! 2 of them which I like and will bring for all my trips. However, for my hubby, he only wore his once and said the pairs of sunglasses was too small for him and refused to wear them anymore !

My 1824 Gwen Stefani Big Metal Shield Sunglasses - Wht/Smk (1824)

My 1950 Versace Inspired Lion Logo Shield Sunglasses

I also purchased some of their accessories which I really like. One of my favourites was this pair of green earrings which everyone seemed to like but no one could ever find a similar one in Singapore.  But too bad , I lost them.

One of the strengths of this site is the user-friendliness. It is very easy to locate the item you want and all year round, they have these interesting sections - "Clearance", "$5 and under", "$5 sunglasses". And the good things are that the items under these sections are definitely cheap and good ! Take a look at one of the fabulous sales item.

Imagine, you can get a 1918 DESIGNER INSPIRED JENNIFER SUNGLASSES [1918] for only US$5 !

 Signature shaped plastic frames with the famous metal bands on the arms.
-Designer Inspired.
-Seen on Jennifer Anniston.

First Shopping At Forever 21

Updated as of 8th Oct

I have always liked the styles of  Forever 21 (F21) and always visit their retail outlets whenever I go to shopping in town. I chanced upon their website and my heart couldn’t stop pouncing. The site carried plenty of clothes that were not available in their retail outlets. I immediately asked my buddy at work and another good friend if they wanted to buy anything from F21 so that we could share the international shipping fees. For a flat rate fee of US$35, we could order as many items as we wanted. (Be careful not to exceed SG$400 as you will be charged with GST 7% by Singapore customs )

Browsing through the numerous pages of clothes was like playing an exciting video game, you had to be real fast cause the colours and sizes we wanted were depleted very quickly. We had to act really fast to lock in our orders, hesitant for a couple of minutes and what you wanted will be gone. I wonder if it is some kind of online marketing gimmick or if there are so many shoppers at the portal. The really great thing is that there  are plenty of sales items, contrary to the retail outlets where sales are very rare.. Furthermore, the items that are on sales in the retail outlets are either very outdated or ugly designs, also its virtually impossible to get the size you want. Shopping at the F21 portal,  it is completely different. So long as I am fast, I get to buy beautiful designs at the right sizes. And they also have this daily fabulous which I am addicted to browsing daily !!!!

Look at our purchases below. The good thing about buying from an online overseas site is that I can get a good quality dress for a friend’s wedding dinner yet I do not have to worry over the fact that someone might be wearing a dress exactly like me ( yah, u know those embarrassing stares you get when someone wears exactly the same dress as u for a dinner function!!)


This is what I got for a November dinner function. Nice??

My buddy at work bought some bags as well . Don't worry, I would take the actual pictures of her bags and show to our readers when the bags arrive !!

We are going to get more for Christmas and Chinese New Year !! Love F21 online !!

Packed Date: 5th Oct 2010

And I so totally love the F21 shipping service. Initially I was rather disappointed to see that my order wasn't even packed after a week. I was telling my colleague that we had to expect the orders to come in only in late Oct. But I received a pleasant surprise on 5th Oct. Although they took at least a week to pack our orders, they were pretty fast in sending out the orders. What I love most is that they have a tracking service, unlike ASOS ! They will send an email to their customers with the tracking url once they shipped our the parcel. 

Go check F21 out. Gonna check the whereabouts of my parcel now for the 137th time.... Hoho!!

Customer Service: Quite prompt. I only need to wait for a day for the customer service to reply to my enquiries due to time zone difference.

Yippee !! I have just made my first purchase with ASOS !! The flat rate shipping fees at £10.50 from UK was way too enticing for my buddy at work and I. When I was studying in Oz 10 yrs ago, I was so amazed and absolutely loved the fashion there. It was very different from Singaporean fashion.

Currently, I am very into Zara and F21 clothings. ASOS carry styles that are similar to Zara and F21 but are in a cheaper price range. The designs they have online are much more varied compared to the retail shops. Furthermore, they have this catwalk video that can be a good indicator to the type of materials and how it looks exactly. I do not really trust photos nowadays since it is very easy to photoshop till the clothes look really beautiful. However, ASOS has this video function to let the customers see exactly what the clothes look like with no editing.

Hey, take a look at some of our purchases

Anti-Barking Device

Sad to say, I spoil my dogs more than my hubby. My hubby will always threaten my naughty puppy that he is going to kick him out of the house if he behaves badly. And when he does that, I will say that I will do the same thing to him : P

My new puppy has a bad habit of barking. When I first adopted him, he had this habit of barking at 4am, 5am, 6am, 7am just to wake me up. He used barking to get a lot of attention ( we never abide to his requests to stop his barking nonsenses)  . Recently, I was reading on facebook about some heartless owner who wanted to give up their dogs coz of barking problems (barking problem is controllable and is related to how the owner discipline the dogs). There is this entry by a reader “ Please do not abandon your dog because of barking problem. I was faced with the same issue and I bought a barking device online and it works. Now the barking problem lessens.”

Well that prompted me to start browsing on ebay for anti barking device. Yes, and I being a cheapo bought one at $7.90 from a seller on ebay, whom I believe is from HK. This device works by sending out an ultrasonic signal that only dogs can hear when activated by the barking .

However, disappointed to say, it isn’t effective. To date, my dog is still barking and the irritating ultrasound “Di” doesn’t seemed to make him stop. He seems very happy to be barking with the “Di” sound around. I am considering buying the one which is priced at $100 + but I am not sure whether it is effective. Has anyone tried yet ? Do let me know !!

Delivery :
  Quite fast waiting period. Takes around 2 weeks to reach me.

Delivery Costs :
  All included in at $7.90

Product Range: Limited. Very "Messy" range of products.

Price:  Very cheap but product not effective!

Customer Service:
 Not too sure as I have not ustilised this yet!
