bid and win!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Bidazzled. All opinions are 100% mine.

Just like every one else, I came to love doing some online shopping— it's convenient, fast and easy way to get some things that we want and need. Apart from that, there are so many great choices and amazing deals we can find online these days that online shopping became better than on-site/in-store shopping.

And when it comes to the bidding and auctioning part, it's always very exciting and challenging for me. It's a great way to compete a little for what we want to get. The good thing about this auction/bid thingy is that you name your price and when you win, that's the best part because you get what you want for the price you want and willing to pay.

And now, let me introduce you to Bidazzled, a new online auction site that was launched recently in early November. They are redefining the online auction market by offering savings of up to 90% on name brand merchandise all while funding a charity. We all love to pay back to the community and this is why we like Bidazzled. It was designed and created to fund a lung cancer charity, which is the Ruch Foundation.

I believe we all have brief ideas how Penny Auctions or Pay-Per-Bid auction sites work. Commonly bids are purchased in advance and then used to bid on the merchandises. The price increases a few cents with each bid placed and a few seconds are added to the countdown clock to give others a chance to bid. The auction ends when no other bids are placed. So if a new laptop ends at just a dollar, then you win the laptop for a dollar!

Now, you could get yourself 15 additional bids when you use these codes until January 15th. :-
  • BBP1202A for Blog; and

  • BTP1202A for Twitter

*All you need to do is to enter the codes on the registration page. There is no obligation or cost of any kind. You can tell everyone about this great news.

Auction winners in Bidazzled usually save over 80% off the retail price. Even if you don't win, you could receive up to 50 Bonus Bids as a thank you for participating. In the first month, there were 2 winners of Nintendo Wii's who have won with just their 5 free bids! Unbelievable but it is real!

Bidazzled also has a lucrative Viral Referral program. Do check it out if you would like to know more about it!

eventually they never say NO to any 'makan-makan' invites...

this is a story about the difference between the current and past students of the koleq (mckk) boys. yes i know they loveeeeeeeeee food, and who doesn't right; but here's a something~

remembers peeps, the recent eid adha was during the spm exams. the school didn't allow any of the form 5 students to go back for the holidays. so puteri invited them to come to our house after the raya prayers. none of them came. it seems that they were... s-h-y(?!!!) *glurp*

when mama told this to my lil bro (batch '93, who is well known as boon since his koleq days) recently, he said: "EEEEE... malu². budak koleq never deny to any makan² invites!" hiks!

yes true. we have experienced them all, especially at my grandma's place here. from papa's younger years in koleq until my lil' bro, they always brought their koleq friends home. even when they wanted to take their spm results (my lil' bro time), they were quite a number of them overnight here. they slept everywhere i tell you! yes everywhere. no need ler for me to tell about this in details, just go and figure ler... and from what i know, when they were here... its always like home sweet home :)

christmas is just around the corner...

believe it or not people i have never attended any christmas party when i moved back here. so the 'christmas line dance party' in ipoh that i went with intan and mrs teh on last friday night, was kind of the first one for me since then. it was truly great and enjoyable. we really enjoyed ourselves sooooo much!


you know people when i first started line dancing earlier this year, i didn't expect to have this kind of fun time at all. so as you could see now people its not that bad staying in this part of the globe. i have even been to line dance carnival in penang few weeks ago. i know i know i still owe the blog post that's in my draft folder mind you! so no sweat i will post about it no matter what~ better late than never huh?!! anyway i have made up my mind to try my very best to release all the blog post in the draft folder asap at least before the year ends... looks like i have to find some time for a self blogging marathon *phew*

alright, one thing's best about attending a costume or theme party is that i could dress-up as much as i could. and as the result, i brought home a hamper sponsored by yee hup for the best dressed title... woot! you could view me with the hamper pictured as the thumbnail of the party vid (later part of this blog post). on the other hand, if you have been a follower of my twitter, i am very sure that you have already known by now about this than anyone else from this tweet.

although some people may find that my costume was very simple— i just went for a bling bling red top with white skirt, and a pair of black boots, and not forgetting a small bling bling christmas hat! but i trust that if you follow the theme correctly, and with at least a bit of effort (take note that i did my hair myself!)... i am sure that you will get a big chance there. oh btw i have been dubbed as one of the santa's elves by an online american friend :))


and another thing that i would like to point out~ this kind of party is a bit different than any other christmas party, as we got to meet some other line dancers and line danced together with them along all kind of musics like country, waltz, rock and roll, and what ever you name it... even hip hop! so don't get the interpretation wrong that line dance is for old people only. you are definitely wrong! make sure you watch our new found line dancing friend shan in the following video. he danced to fuego perfectly i tell you!


and of course there's more of me in the video too thanks to more of our new found line dancing friends hamidah and her gang~

i could obviously say that the party would not be successful with the great organization by the organizer chris ng, who is also a line dance instructor in ipoh. thank you so much chris for the great party! we will surely come back next time...

holiday buying guide~

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Dirt Devil. All opinions are 100% mine.


Here in Malaysia, we are already entering the third week of year end school holidays. The time is radically moving fast. Megat's extra classes started even on the Saturday (first day) itself. The schedule has been arranged as such because Hari Raya Haji (Eid Adha) fell on the following Friday. Take note that Megat is schooling in a local Chinese primary school. He totally skipped the second week's classes, as he already followed his Wan Chik (auntie) back to KL on last Sunday. While as for me here, of course there's more stories to come soon.

I bet some of you are already shopping for gifts to give to your closed family, relatives and friends on this coming holiday. You might be looking for shopping outlets online and trying to see if you could extend your budget for gifts. In fact, you could. If you're only patient and diligent enough in finding the best deals online, you'll definitely find one. I can recommend one as I blog about it— Dirt Devil Holiday Buying Guide.

They have an amazing downloadable holiday buying guide filled with 100’s of tips and tricks to get more bang for your buck when shopping online. The guide includes over 300 websites, tricks and clever ways to shop online.

The site not only let you save for your grocery budget, it also helps you protect the environment because shopping online lets you save on gas. This one is one of the most important reasons why most people prefer online shopping over traditional in-store buying. Normally, all items for delivery have corresponding shipping fees. With Dirt Devil, you may take advantage of the Free Shipping Shortcuts *drooling*

"paragon of fashion"

i have been called as "paragon of fashion" by harjinder, a junior of my school. it started when i saw this on a canadian fb friend's status:

WANNA SEE WHO DOES THIS... Let's see how honest FB friends are. Leave a 1 word comment that you think best describes her. It can only be 1 word. No more than 1 word. Then copy & paste this post on your wall so she can leave a word about you. This should be interesting... Wonder if she has 20 brave friends who will do this~

so after i typed a word about heather, i copy and paste the above on my fb status. i was kinda eager too to see of what people would say about me. it was an honour for me though to find out that there are some people who secretly adore me for my fashion. i just dunno what to say but that's me! i guess harjinder could see it from our school days till now. basically i lurve to dress up according to the occasions, functions or events i am attending. i dunno about you, but for me i would definitely feel odd if i don't wear according to the theme...

like recently when i attended a chinese wedding, i wore cheongsam (i know i know i didn't blog about this YET)! guest were kinda impressed seeing me. even most of the chinese people themselves don't wear their traditional clothes during functions like that :(


and i wonder if you could still remember about an indian wedding that i posted some time early this year. i chose to wear lehnga. ayuuuuu... you could read it here, plus more close-up pics of their wedding traditions.

Me, Myself & I

i also owned áo dài, a vietnam traditonal clothes that my dad bought it tailor-made for me during his vietnam trip many years ago.

besides lehnga, i have wore saree too at a company dinner some time ago. it was a bollywood theme. i chose to wear saree to create something different from other people. i wanted to show them that malay girls can wear saree too... then voila!

well, all the above pics were part of the other clothes that i wore apart from the normal baju kurung or kebaya. and now, i am in the mid of thinking of what to wear for a christmas line dance party that i am going to attend next week. any idea people? ;P
