Mr. & Mrs. Eavesdropping

I'm pretty sure - kind of confident actually - that everybody eavesdropped at some point of time. Except for the deaf of course.  Even then, they may try to read lips, maybe. (trying to self-justify)
Anyway, back to eavesdropping and the title, you see, Willie and I have this weird habit of eavesdropping. But it's not deliberate at all. We only listen to those within earshot. We do not have super hearing so we usually actually only overheard those who speaks too loud. 
This, I'm even surer. We're always force-fed information by these loud speakers that we're not technically eavesdropping. (super self-defensive) I said it was our weird habit, so what's weird is - we would discuss it afterwards. 
Often, these episodes happen during dinner. Our conversation would slowly fade away as our ears pricked up. And then, there would be "this glance". "The glance" of acknowledgement of some sort.. that we're both listening; we both think it's a joke/ridiculous/wtf/insert-your-own-description. 
We didn't started out having such a nice "combi". At first, either of us would still be rattling off without realizing we had already lost the attention of the other. We may then choose to either join-in or get the other's attention back to our conversation. But gradually, we just listened. We don't always because it may not be interesting or worth our discussion. 
I believe sometimes we do get caught, and one of us would start talking pretending we've never left our conversation. I think that's quite enough because we do catch others listening on us too.. And once, I just turned over and look at them and they just start stuttering a non-existent conversation. Lol..
This habit may not be exclusive to us but I thought it's kinda healthy though rude at the same time. Discussing on what we overheard and their opinions opened up areas we may otherwise never uncover. It keeps our relationship interesting!
Not that I am suggesting you and your love to start listening to your neighbouring tables. ;)

First new in 2015 - Look

I had a haircut!
Before

After

I thought I could do a new look on top of a superstitious thought since 2014 was so damn screwed.

I thought of it long and hard. It's been a while since I last donned short hair, and I don't remember me pretty. I also thought of who could do it for me. I was afraid of someone who is too creative or someone who know me and gets too opinionated.

In the end, I went to a friend. Not before threatening to burn his salon down if he ruined it.

He did a great job. I think. The color is great and he convinced me the length is good for lazybones like me. I love it! Willie loves it too.. and compliments poured in after I posted it up. I don't get comments often so 5 is pouring, okay? ^^

Ozsale~Singsale~Buyinvite



I have an outstanding order on 14434093 from BuyInvite where 2/3 of the items are still not delivered.
This order dates back to early November and I've still not received all of the items now 2 months later.
You conveniently close your website, remove access and deleted all correspondences both on the sites and on FB (for both brands)..
I've so far been very cooperative from going to a different site just because your close-down note says so.. Leave messages with order no. explaining the situation again and again but never ever get replies.
Are you a fraud?
In case you are, I'm not going to message you privately with my order no. again. So do not bother to C&P that standard reply.
I'll deal with you here and I'll give you 3 working days to solve my problem.
In case you really really are, and delete this post or close this FB and Singsale as well, and since I have a lot of free time, I'll visit you in Kallang or wherever you are.
Or I might just get lazy (or if the address is just a shell or fictitious) and gather together whatever I have and just get down to the NPP to report and judging by the complaints you have, they should gather soon enough to visit you on our behalf.

The above is my latest post and final attempt to get my very delayed parcels purchased on BuyInvite.com.sg that had closed down its website without prior notices and from the looks of it, many unsolved distress.

I've shopped on Singsale before and for whatever reasons I didn't again, I wouldn't have done any on BuyInvite if I knew they were "sisters company". I only found out after I paid. The first experience wasn't too bad but just the same, very delayed delivery with no reason and no response. BUT SINGSALE DON'T JUST CLOSE DOWN! And I eventually received my items.

But right now, many are screaming on their FB for refunds and like many bad PR, they're just deleting them.. I'm gonna update here on follow ups, just to keep tabs.

Updates:


I've just checked and full refund is in on 12th Jan.

Still, I don't recommend buying from any under the Ozsale Group. We shop to purchase, the shopping itself is an enjoyment and looking forward to your purchase coming in is another, so when it doesn't, the disappointment is HUGE.
I buy a lot online, and yes, there are a lot more risks compared to buying physically but I seldom get disappointment. In fact, I've gotten more scams attack selling than buying.

But you wouldn't think a friend would recommend a shop that lets her down, right?

River Safari

.. and it's fantastic~


Yesterday, we visited the River Safari, like finally. It's a relatively new park and much easier to explore.


It's one route with no splits, you just walk ahead. The thing I love most is it's all sheltered. Oh well, except the ride.

It rained when we reach the Pandas and we were kept dry because of this well-thought facility but we had to go take this Amazon Boat Quest that got our butts wet right from the beginning. (҂⌣̀_⌣́)ᕤ

The highlight is the Panda (I guess) and I wonder what have they to do with rivers but it got us excited about the excursion. So excited I feel disappointed they were just sleeping or hiding.. You know.. Just like how pandas do..

Anyway, we got to visit because Willie's employer has a corporate friends card so its employees can bring their family to this park.. Tourists should get a Park Hopper (multi-park) card so they can visit a few parks and save some bucks..

We definitely enjoyed it, not getting scorched but the heat was still getting to us before the rain. Tropical Singapore~
