His initiatives reached the ears of the editorial team when the school teacher wrote in to request for old copies of the magazines to be donated to the school.

Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015

I’m honoured to be invited to the Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015. As this is my first time attending Longines’s Gold Cup, I read that the Group 1 race was sponsored for the first time by famous Swiss watchmaker Longines in 2010, and was taken out by Risky Business. Kicking off a Sunday with such a fantabulous view of the race course, I still wish to have more of this.

Journey to Boracay

I really love the feeling of stepping into a completely new place, where no one knows you and you can do selfies in the middle of the road when passers by will only remember you for selfie-ing in the middle of the road. #JustSaying

Always deprived of traveling. A-L-W-A-Y-S. But it seems to me, it isn’t that easy to get to Boracay as I flew over from Singapore to Kalibo. Flight took about 2.5 hours then I needed to catch a bus to Caticlan Jetty. The ride took me about 1.5 hours or slightly more but it feels forever as my anticipation can wait no more to see the turquoise sea! I was welcomed by a gloomy sky.

Little did I know, the ground staffs move the luggage in such a manual manner. photo 20150805_145650_zpshjpbcpzo.jpg

Spotted! I signed up with My Boracay Guide to get myself to Boracay. My Boracay Guide will ensure an airport pick up to Boracay. PHP 750 pesos will take care for everything, which includes the bus ticket and the ferry to Boracay. The price differs from the number of people you are traveling with. The more people, the lesser you pay. Here is the list of the prices.

 photo 20150805_151337_zpsx8aejdpp.jpg

The journey to Boracay begins when you settled your luggage and get yourself in the bus. Dozed off on the bus journey from Kalibo International Airport to Caticlan Jetty. You’ll need to pay PHP 175 pesos for the ride to Boracay. With My Boracay Guide, the amount I paid includes the ferry tickets and all fees.

 photo 20150805_172457_zps4bqd8tfk.jpg photo 20150805_172552_zpsl789fziu.jpg

… and then it was smoothly arrange to send me to my accommodation. No hiccups!

 photo 20150805_174504_zpsyt7o3s3p.jpg photo 20150805_175831_zps8zyria9t.jpg

Welcome to Boracay! Yes, it poured and some areas were flooded too. Its the monsoon season, and no, I did not check before I book my tickets.

It has been rather hazy and I have been staying indoor over the weekend. There’s nothing much but to spend time with Xherlyn. While we were having our coffee break, I stumbled upon something new. Looks like I have found a way to get rid of my unwanted items at home. I’m talking about good condition items which you would like to put on sale cuz it is still good and usable but its a waste to just chuck them into the bin.

 photo 20150927_145243_zpsophakodl.jpg

Here is what … an app that works both ways, Buy & Sell. All you need to do is:

  1. Download the Shopee app. (Shopee supports both Android & iOS and its FREE!)
  2. Register yourself with an account.
  3. You are ready to splurge :)

I know I have been mentioning Shopee for a couple of times. Here is how you can ease your curiosity at the same time for me to answer to your queries if the question “What is Shopee?” has been lingering on your mind:

“Shopee is a mobile marketplace designed for both buyers and sellers to enjoy fast, smooth and safe transactions. With our in-app functions, you can easily turn your clutter into cash and share the fun with your friends! Plus, Shopee Guarantee ensures that the seller ships only after the buyer has paid, and the buyer’s payment is transferred to the seller only after receiving the product. We aim to create a simple and secure mobile marketplace for everyone to buy and sell, anytime, anywhere.”

The Shopee app is user friendly and I can assure that its easily navigated. photo Shopee_zpsn7hnq4p7.jpg

Shopee consists of items ranging from clothes, gadgets, accessories, supplements to tickets & vouchers! Xherlyn then saw these eye lashes that drew her attention. She finds the app user friendly too since she is an online-shopping-fanatic! On top of that, Shopee does not charge in anyway as it is a platform for sellers to explore without having the concerns of payment. You can “Like”, “Comment” or “Share” on the item via the app too to your other social media platforms too!

 photo 20150927_145743_zpsaoosrf0a.jpg

There’s a search option on Shopee’s app where it helps to you find the item you are looking for at the same time it narrows down to the available items which are on sale on the app. It helps buyers to search and eliminate the items the buyer is looking for. Here is the result to the item I’m looking for.

 photo 20150928_142558_zps7b8fejgr.jpg

When you’ve selected the item you desire, there will be a brief summary on the item you selected.

 photo 20150928_142929_zpsiobj67wv.jpg

There is this “Chat” function on the app which is kept within the app, hence the details between the seller and buyer will not be exposed. For instance in my case, I wanted to get a Privacy Tempered Glass for my phone but I am not sure if the seller has any available ones for Samsung Note 3. Hence, I dropped her a message via the “Chat” option.

 photo 20150928_143229_zps4ixiguzm.jpg

When you’re done shopping, here is what you do upon checking out. Remember to enter the Promo Code cuz those are the perks for special discounts!
 photo 20150928_143637_zpswwyxwtuv.jpg

Payment is then made easy for users too. Buyers can make payment for all items via credit card and online banking. Its completely hassle free as all the transactions happen within your fingertips. As for the sellers, they are able to avoid the hassle of having to cross check all bank transfer/payment made via credit card or online banking for their items as Shopee will conduct the matching to ensure all payment is correct.

 photo 20150928_143709_zpsy2webzfu.jpg

The available Online Banking are CIMB Clicks, Maybank2u, Hong Leong Connect and RHB Now.

 photo 20150928_143740_zpslf51p0wb.jpg

If you encounter any issues, Shopee’s customer service is always a call away to provide support for all matters regarding Shopee service from payment, to delivery status right up to product quality.

As a seller with Shopee, you will be able to widen your customer base while for buyers, experience great deals and shop anytime, anywhere. Just upload the picture of the item you wish to let go, equip with a brief information of the item.

 photo 20150928_151736_zps8mclv6yu.jpg

Its pretty easy and here’s my turn to offer you guys some perks. To kick start your shopping spree, I’d like to share with you a promo code which entitles you a discount of RM 10.00 when you shop at Shopee marketplace – storewide with Terms & Condition apply.


Terms & Condition:

  • Valid with minimum spend of RM30.
