Vdates End Jul ’13

IMG_20130730_9Hi`

It has been sometime since the last update. As i get busier, i tend to forget most of what happened. Thus Vdates are gradually full of pictures.

I am back to work today after taking off for yesterday. Cant help feeling extremely Tired and Sleepy.

In fact, i am dozing off while typing this. Had fun during the Staycation with my Family for Mum’s Birthie (more on that again) and now, i m missing every moment of it, even the bickering sessions. Oh God, bring me back to 2 days ago. 😦

Alright, that is so not happening, thus i will start and end briefly on the updates.

Went to the famous E-commerce shop MDS collections’ physical shop last week at Raffles Chevron to collect 1 of the tops i bought.
It was the Orange top that i posted for sale previously, it is sold already anyway.

Frankly, i always have the impression that MDS is making it big and all but i did not particularly like shopping with them since sometime back. Firstly, i have to admit that the pricing does not really justify the quality. No offence but there are many other shops selling nicer items, of nicer quality out there. Even if is not nicer, there are definitely items that can be compared.

However, i wouldnt mind to shop with them once in a blue moon if only the attitude and services of their staff is better and nicer than what i experienced recently.

I knew all along that their service is not extremely good but i brushed myself off and told myself that it is ok as long as i get what i wanted.
But the last experience i had last week at Raffles Chevron convinced me otherwise.

Well, i am not here to judge nor to sabotage anybody or any shop. If you read this blog regularly, you would have known that i like to share my experiences. Whether it is a simple skincare review or a hair cut experience, i will share the good and bad.

Also, i will make no reservations in sharing my Personal views/opinions and experiences with all Honesty. For eg. I wouldnt filter any pictures in my skincare reviews because i always believe that a real and sincere review does not requires that though many others prefer looking at fake pictures with cutesy stickers.

Thus after all the justification i made for myself, i am writing how dissatisfied i am towards MDS collections. Yes i know that the shop is making it big, if not they wouldnt have physical shops besides their e-commerce shop. Of course , i am also aware that they have been around for sometime.

However, what irks me is how arrogant the brand starts to get, after they make it big.

I couldnt really remember the incidents in the past and thus i am letting it go. I will just mention the last experience from last week.
The moment i entered the shop, there was no greeting of any sort but i am fine because i aint a sucker for such attention. It is also fine that the sales person allow us to wander around on our own as i prefer that to the frustrating aggressive promoters.

I guess what really frustrated me was  during my payment for my item. I took out my receipt to collect my item, as i made payment online previously.
I was being the usual me, saying Hi with a smile and i told the lady at the cashier that i am making my collection.

She did not even look at me and she took the receipt from me. She then signaled to her colleague and her colleague came over and searched for my item in their cupboard. To be honest, i was already pissed at that because the very basic of a business is courtesy and well mannered service and that includes eye contact and a simple Hi.

However, there was Zero interaction, no smiles and no greetings from the MDS staff.

Thereafter, the colleague threw my bag of item on the table and walked off. I signed to acknowledged the item and throughout the whole procedure, there was nothing said. After collecting the item, i said  Thanks and was expecting at least a nod.

And you probably knew what happened, both ladies working in the shop turned their back towards me and there wasnt even a simple “THANKS”

INSTEAD, as a customer, i have to thank them for attending to me. 

Honestly, this turned me off big time, but I thought it was because i was wearing like crap that day and thus the hostile treatment.
Because as you might already knew, if you wear like crap and you try entering big names like “CHAN**”, “PRAD*” or” LOUIS Something” in places like HK or even here in SG, you might be despised and the sales person might not entertain you nor serve you.

I thought that is really bad because good service is simply NOT like that.  But anyway, we are talking about MDS here, a local home grown successful brand, that has yet to become another Chanel.

Thus i hang around for awhile more to observe if  the arrogant sales persons entertain the other ladies who were better dressed. To my dismay, NOPE. They were not being served. Even the ones paying at the counter experienced what i experienced. Well, i am not sure about others, maybe there are people who are not as anal as i am when it comes to service, thus they are fine but for myself, i do not compromise to such quality of service.

There are countless e-commerce shops in Sg and overseas. There are bigger names around that provides excellent services. Frankly, i used  to shop with Love Bonito before they were so big, before they are known as Love Bonito. They were Bonito Chico previously and i used to shop with them frequently back then. The pricing were more justifiable back then but as they revamped and all, i personally find  that their designs changed (more common and less attractive) and the quality of their clothes are not as good as what was raved about by many many people. Thus i really do not find it as worthwhile to get apparels from them now. Of course, this is my personal opinion.

However, i still buy a few items from them now and then because honestly, there are still nice stuff to look at, their service has never drop despite anything. Their services and attitude towards customers are still comparable to the past which they first started and that is really a relief to consumers like us.

Look, i am not a stuck up princess that needs alot of TLC when it comes to shopping. I basically just hope for the basic needs of manners to be met. I have zero tolerance for bad service because for every cent i pay, i am paying not only for the item  but also the services. It is also very disgusting to encounter rude services from big names that are giving hostile services now after they have gained the fame and ‘status’.

Thus after saying so much, i regrettably confirmed that i will never shop with MDS collections again.

I honestly forgot about the previous incidents, if i am not wrong, it should be some email inquiries i made which were replied in unfriendly manners previously. However, for this incident, even if anyone were to argue that it is not fair to judge since it is only a one time event, i am still not gonna visit the shop again. I think that if 1 out of 2 sales persons in the shop  is rude, we can excuse the fact that every1 has bad mood now and then. But no, if the entire shop is ill mannered, it has something to do with its management. Its management has to make sure that their staff are properly trained because these people represent their Brand and  they are the most important people as they are the front line warriors, making interactions and building r/s with customers.

Of course, having said that, they might not be bothered as only 1 customer made such statements now (assuming there isnt anymore anal feedbacks other than me)
But i dont really care what action they will (or will not) take because i have said my piece and made a decision anyway.

This post is still on my updates but since i mentioned about shopping, might as well just include this part.

And so, i sold the top i got anyway because it didnt fit my chest at all. Terrible. I actually like the top very much but too bad, it didnt fit me.

Went to get brows threading done with my baby Sis on Fri and we both love our new brows now!  Not particularly in love with the Thick Korean brows but we wanted something more natural and of course, the straighter ones. We are satisfied and thank you Strip for the good services!

IMG_20130719_200924Brows before- Not too bad, but can be better!
Picture taken 2 weeks back? Treated Sis n Mum to Dinner for my humble pay increment. 

74044_10153029324505276_584360655_nAfter, i think looks better but barely noticeable though 😡

Visited gf on Sat with buns from  Barcook (that famous bakery and i will probably review on it soon because they have really nice buns!) Finally, i get to play with the babies. Oh man, i miss them already!

IMG_20130728_1That is Toro baby. 

IMG_20130730_3
Our lunch, fol.

Then I hang around and we watched some lame shows, went to get Ramly burger for dinner at Paya Lebar and then i head home to watch movie with Mum.
The next day, we went for our staycation and that will come in my next post.

IMG_20130728_13I love this picture so much! Big Thanks to gf and Chris for helping us so much, and thank you so much for the marvelous Fruit tart!

IMG_20130721_185819Went to Dr Robi‘s session at Heart of God Church.
My 1st time to the church, It is relatively smaller than CHC and the members are younger.
However, as much as i am not used to it, the presence of God is strong.
Praise the Lord!
It was a wonderful experience and thank you HOG for inviting Dr Robi.

Find out more about Dr Robi HERE. He is awesome and you will love all his messages!

999076_518546634880762_832431974_nActually, there will always be people around you that do not believe in you.

This morning, my friend was asking me why is it that i appear slimmer in a pic and from the tone,
i can tell it is a doubt and not a question.
To be honest, i replied my friend and also would love to say, i did not edit the picture.
I lost some flabs because i have been working hard in the Gym.
Moreover, that picture was really taken in a better angle.

Sometimes, people doubt you because they themselves can never put in effort in doing what you are doing.
Thus it makes them feel better by doubting you and putting you down, in the hope that your are really like them.

You do not have to care about  those doubts, you know you are not like what they make you to be.
For me, i just know it.
I know my efforts are not wasted.
🙂

Vdates March

V-dates   IMG_20130324_1 Hi! It is rare that i blog on a Sat. But i am doing it today anyway.

Well, i should be running now but looking at the time, i hesitated. TBH, i dont usually care about timing when it comes to jogging as long as it is night and dark. No sunlight please. I am used to running at night, 12mn, 3am? No diff to me.
But i have been receiving warnings and advises from various people, warning me and super against me from running at such hrs.I appreciate the concern, really. But i love running in the dark, quiet and peaceful.

However, tonight, something inside me tell me to listen to the advises and not run. It is however, 2am now.
Call me timid but i am super cautious about my well being recently, you know, besides having tons of dreams that i havent achieve, i am also very concern about my loved ones.

I do not want anything to happen to me and cause any sadness to my loved ones.
Thus i am staying in tonight and hopefully do some stretching and crunches tomorrow.

First and foremost, Vdates simply means Valencia Updates in short- a record of my past weeks events and whatnot.
I am sweating like madness now, the weather is crazy now and i am sweating even when i am stationary at home, sitting on a crouch. Can you imagine the pain. ARGH. Ok, typing till this part, i can no longer endure the warmth as it is killing me and i hate to blog in such condition.

There is no A/C in the living room and i have to run to my  bedroom for A/C.
I do not really like doing much in my bedroom except for sleeping and watching online movies- something that doesnt require me to use my brain. Thus i shall continue tmr or Mon. I cant take the heat, so…sorry! no updates till then! Will be back^

Sunday evening 9pm….

Hi, i am back but i doubt i can finish this post.
Just finished 3 hrs packing  my wardrobe.
It is not that i have plenty of clothes, ok maybe i have but most of them are impulse buys and some are old  and the fact that it is super messy doesnt help.
I am so lethargic now and the weather is CRAZY since yesterday. It is so warm and humid.

IMG_20130324_211133[1]
Slept at 5+ am this morning, watched a Chinese show call ” Together” starring Kai Ko (that dude in the TW school show), Michelle Chen (that gal in the same TW school show), Angelababy (omg, she is super super pretty) and the Ip Man guy….oh Donnie Yen.

It was a terrible show. Besides eye candies, there is ntg much to watch. After regretting, i dl Resident Evil- Retribution. I knew i make the right choice but it was already 4+am and i watched a little before drifting to sleep.

I love the feeling of drifting to sleep, super tired kinda feeling rather than rolling on bed, ‘waiting for the right time’ to fall asleep :/

Btw, i have done repairing my lappy at $60. It is cheap, yes, but it is still money.
Others might not get it, like W, he thought it was really cheap and that i am still ‘whinning’ about $60.
But it is still money to me and i am saving money for 1 big plan of my life, thus i dont really appreciate when that kinda “y u so stingy attitude” surfaces.

It is also true that my fren used to reformat my comp for free in e past…but well, since i am there (sim lim) already…might as well just get it done.

Nevertheless, i thank W and his friend for the good deal & finally, after weeks, i am relieved that i am able to return W’s lappy to him.

I dont really want to have the indebted feeling, and i feel i am obliged to have, in this whole ‘borrowing and asking for reference for repairing saga/incident/situation’

Anyway, i am a grateful person, i will thank you with the bottom of my sincere heart. But i dont really like the feeling if the person who help me EXPECT me to keep saying thank u, keeping sucking up and etc. I really dont like it that way.

Shrugs. Anyway, I am really clueless with typing out all the happenings, i shall post pictures and let pictures and captions do the talkings. It is easier for me that way, and clearer for you people too!

Oh, the Star Awards advert on tv (constantly) is kinda irritating me (perhaps you too). LOL.

Sis is baking coffee cake and cookies now, cant smell any better…WEEEEEE

IMG_20130318_6 Pardon the cheesy ‘Sunnies’ effect. My eyes were looking like -_-  Just wana share the picture of this cropped top/blazer. It is nice 🙂 by Bows & Feathers IMG_20130320_2

IMG_20130320_1

IMG_20130320_4 Super ugly first pic, more swollen lids pictures…My lids were swollen and reason is unknown. Took MC to rest at home and the right lid is now still a little swollen. Sadness but i like the part which the swell makes the eyes bigger. Sick but still, the lids r too thick and i can see how i might look if i ever ‘enlarge’ my eyes. Thus no cosmetic surgery for me ever. #haha IMG_20130322_2   Still swollen…

IMG_20130319_9 IMG_20130319_2 IMG_20130319_3 Did Scaling and polishing to remove nasty stains. Am i happy? Absolutely.
Perhaps i am saving for Teeth Whitening too!
Thank God i stopped committing myself to Smoking, never gona  get those nasty smoke stains ever again.
I do not have before and after pictures because i simply cant be bothered and i 4gt to take the ‘Before’ pics but just imagining it alone can be rather disturbing already.
The Pics above are not filtered.
yeap, scaling and polishing can make the teeth looks so much better already, imagine Whitening.. IMG_20130321_194601   My prayer this month is with Chris and her Dad, i sincerely pray for Mr Wong to get well and i am praying here a bold prayer. I know i have a couple of believer friends reading this blog, may i request for your prayers for Mr Wong, who is currently very ill. He small intestine is bleeding internally and if he doesnt go for the ops, he might be in huge danger. If he does, it might be worse as he is already very old. Please keep him in prayers.

Work in progress… IMG_20130321_201345   After visiting Chris and her Dad at TTSH, i went over to Gary’s clinic. Yes, Gary has opened his own clinic this March. I didnt help much, except for some simple chores, and i am still guilty of not going over ytd to help him with reception works. I knew i was in trouble when i couldnt sleep the night before 😦 Sorry Gary!

Yea, his clinic is relatively new and thus he needs more help. Though his clinic is new, he has rich experience in treating body aches, and guiding you to keeping fit. You may also read more of him at http://www.garytho.wordpress.com

  Also, i would like to ask…If you are looking to adopt a dog. You may consider Belle.

She is a 7 yr old Labrador. Her previous owner abandoned her heartlessly and look at the pic, she is apparently rather hurt and traumatized by that heartless woman.
If you are sure you can love this lovely doggie till she pass on, please pm me.
Belle is currently staying with Cel, and Cel has 3 dogs excluding Belle and she can barely handle all of them anymore.

Despite knowing that she will miss Belle dearly, she has no choice but to give Belle up for adoption as her friend (that heartless owner) will most probably put Belle to sleep should Belle goes back to her.

Belle is gentle, not violent, and unfortunately, she has skin disease (but she is ok under the right care). 575323_10151385346963721_1459245805_n   IMG_20130322_020549Sis (or Mum) bought these. Love ’em! IMG_20130324_055938 IMG_20130324_061650 Yea, i watched this half way and looking forward to finishing it.

Got it for Mum and really thankful to CHC’s Dialect church for the efforts. IMG_20130323_183551 Really thankful for this as it speaks  directly to what i am fearing/feeling that day. 🙂 Thank God, Thank Chuch.

However, she kinda  failed this time. The cake tasted like pudding. But the cookies are superb! 😀
