10.09.2013 | 貪小便宜

[Volume 8 Issue 9, #1785]
係, 你眼前的確係一系列不同顏色嘅同款水樽, 不過唔好意思事先聲明, 唔係你諗嘅大贈送噃!! 所以若果你將個視窗閂咗唔再睇埋落去, 我完全明白而且仲唔會怪大家嘅, 哈哈!! 其實今日係想講我竟然為咗呢四個水樽淪落到.. 淪落到咩地步呢?? 故事由上個星期城中個傢具展開始.. 話說每日首1000名入場登記嘅人士, 每人都會免費獲得以上限量精美水樽乙個.. 本來我對咁樣嘅市場促銷方式都冇乜興趣, 不過第一日咁啱經過又有時間, why not?? 結果拎到個紅色嘅, 一睇之後非常喜歡喎.. 結果接住落去嘅三日, 我就天天報到, 我-竟-然-天-天-報-到!! 每日唔同嘅顏色, 結果我連續四日都晨早去排隊輪水樽.. 其實我係諗住既然有咗一個, 就索性收集一套啦.. 講得好聽嘅, 係我有恆心, 有一股鍥而不捨, 為求完美嘅精神!! 講得難聽嘅, 咪就係我師奶仔性格作祟, 貪小便宜囉!! 真係難以相信我竟然如此, 都唔係平時嘅我嚟㗎嘛~~ :D
yes, you see one set of water bottles in different colors, but sorry to say that this is not a giveaway post if you thought so!! hence if you stop reading and close the window, i totally understand and will not frown upon that, haha!! actually i wanted to talk about how uncle i was for these four water bottles.. how uncle was i?? it all started with that home and living exhibition in town last week.. so, everyday the first 1000 visitors who registered at the entrance will each get a limited edition water bottle as seen above for free.. initially i wasn't keen at all on this kind of marketing promotion, but on the very first day i coincidentally passed by, furthermore since i've also got time so why not?? and so it ended up i got the red one, and i liked it very much!! since then for the next three days, i went there everyday, I UNEXPECTEDLY WENT THERE EVERYDAY!! it's a different color on each day, hence i went there early in the morning for a total of four consecutive days just to queue up for the bottles.. i actually thought since i've already have one, might as well collect one whole set right?? to put it in a nice way, it's because i am a determined person who seek for perfection.. to put it as it is, i guess the auntie-ness in me kind of made me go all the way for the freebies as if they were gold!! so unbelievable i did that, because that was not the usual me either~~ :D

    1. I agree, these bottles are so nice, no wonder ah boy went all the way to get them la!!

    2. Yes the bottles are very nice but Ah Boy was not so nice. He didn't tell us!!!!

      Delete
    3. i saw the advertisement and was actually pondering if i should go.. but after the first day getting the red one, i've decided to collect all 4 of them!! ooopsss, i thought nobody will be as auntie as i am, so i didn't tell earlier~~ :D

  2. You are indeed an aunty in disguise! Adoi you so kiasu and went to collect all 4 colours. If they had 7 colours you would be there for a week. Their database collection sucks!!! Lol

    1. maybe their database not enough time to update yet kot? Later on SK will get 4 same emails from them on their promotion each time they have it :p

      Delete
    2. Yeah I forgot they will only key in later and the database will have rejects for multiple similar names/address. I am good in this database nonsense.

      I wanna skin this kari pap ah boy for not telling us to get these free bottles! Phiak his head! When he told me got warehouse sale for perfumes, I just drove my car and detoured into the highway to Park Royal hotel instantly!!! This is Anay!

      Delete
    3. hahaha, i just found out that they actually had another round in April but i didn't know that, it was black and white, even nicer than this current four colors dei.. hmmm, 7 days in a row?? probably won't be able to make it dei~~

      yeah, i think they will only key in after the exhibition so they may find lots of duplicates, haha!! but strange, two of the four days i actually keyed in my info into their laptop, no reject also..

      okie okie, next time if i am at any place with good steals, i will inform Anay beforehand!! guess next would be the L'oreal Warehouse Sales :D

    Collect freebies as long as you don't spend more than what the items are worth, I consider OK.

    1. oh, of course everyone is missing the Hot Blogger Mama from Taiping.. you have been MIA for like two weeks, and maybe if we didn't see you for another day, we would have lodged a police report, haha!! :D

      Delete
  17. Oh, auntie-ness post again!
    You know I am very surprise at how you could ACCIDENTALLY go queue up there everyday just to get these bottles!! Because according to my understanding, seldom guys will do that, cause it needs patience, and guys usually lack of it.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But have to say these bottles are indeed very attractive and nice la! So you plan to keep them or use them instead?
      Just in case some days you find them useless, remember to organize a giveaway ya, I don't mind to have them xD

      Delete
    2. So this is a home and living exhibition huh? So did you just take the bottles and leave, or you actually walk around? Got spotted anything special/unique?

      Delete
    3. Guys lack patience ah?

      That could be an insult to Ah Boy... and my hubby. LOL

      I think I have less patience than these two men. kakaka ;)

      Delete
    4. Men have better patience... I read this from some surveys but I think it must be due to hormone issues. My office has more females and tempers flare like unpredictable weathers & that's scary sometimes!

      Delete
    5. hehehe, i ACCIDENTALLY went there for the first day and then UNEXPECTEDLY been there for the next three days.. hmmmm, who say a guy cannot be patient?? haha, you must be judging by observing your hubby alone?? geez.. actually a lot of people queued up for the registration to get the water bottle leh.. look at Lina and TM's explanation, and you will be surprised, hahaha..

      errr, actually they insisted that you go into the exhibition hall after the registration, so i consider myself briefly browsed through the units before i left lah.. :D

  18. well, i also tan xiao pian yi leh~ sigh...

    1. yeah, if you like that thing and it's free, why not?? it's not totally free, but we spent effort queuing and exchange them with our contacts for the marketeers~~

    2. can i tumpang hint hint here too? J's tumbler always rosak or hilang wor...:p

      Delete
    3. Your J better use plastic bottles as these metal canisters are fragile and easily get knocks and scratches on the paint. I remembered getting a similar one from California Fitness which was RED colour. After a few months it looked as if I went to war in Iraq and came back with a bottle beyond recognition.

      Delete
    4. yeah, they look good that was why i was so "uncle" to get all the colors.. hehehehe, the aunties here hint hint want to get the bottle from me?? aiyah, too bad lah, already distributed to family dei~~

      i think those given by California Fitness are cheapo OEM bottles lah, same thing to this from the perfect living.. anyway, if you want good ones that won't scratch and fade, buy those branded ones like SIGG.. :)

      Delete
    5. Aiyoh Uncle Ah Boy...

      We cannot afford SIGG la.

      We use cheap cheap ones only.

      Or freebies. :P

      Delete
    6. that's why i never own a SIGG too, and that's why i so uncle go and queue up for this freebie water bottle!! and even my gym bottle i also thick face mintak from Mak Glam remember?? :D

  27. Nice bottles. What I like about these is that they are wide-mouthed which makes for easy washing. I often shudder at and shun water bottles with narrow mouth. How am I going to wash them, I wondered.

    I give you full marks for the game-spirit and determination in going there every day! Kudos! You deserve them all. :D

    Replies
    1. I was going to jump on you for saying 'so aunty' or something to that effect but stopped in my tracks when 'so uncle' or close to that was mentioned.

      These days, uncles too make up a good percentage of the queue. I read a few days ago about an uncle queuing up for free tickets from The Star every time there are tickets to be given away. See?

      I don't think there is anything wrong queuing up for things that are worth the while. One would be foolish not to. No?

      Delete
  28. Four very sporty bottles, I like too. If for me, I will bring the purple one to gym, the orange one to swimming, the silver one to cycling and the red to yoga. Just nice la!

    I know you won't give any of them to me. You queued up in the morning to get such a precious bottle, you sure will keep all to yourself. I know la!

    Anyway, nothing wrong too, as long as you are doing something that really can make you happy.
