Online Shopping Experiences

Online shopping! If you are new (or interested) to the online shopping trend, relax and enjoy this blog. Ok, my very first purchase online was with Amazon. Buying books. If you are scared of shopping online, my recommendation is that you start with some really, really trusted websites. Most of the super uber famous stores should be safe. Once you purchase from the trusted websites and got your orders delivered to your house, you will feel more daring afterward and venture to the less popular sites.

I strongly recommend you do some research before buying. You want to know their reputation, their policy, etc. Normally I read about other customers' reviews on places such as Resellerratings (http://www.resellerratings.com/). Not only do you get an idea how the stores deliver their promises but you also feel more secure after reading the good reviews. Also, it's important to know the store's return policy. The policy differs from stores so you might want to know what exactly you are dealing with.

Now I will talk about some experiences I have with online shopping and some awesome online stores...

Let's start from local to international goodies. For local deals, I visit Teambuy and RedFlagDeals for updates. I believe they are Canadian websites. So if you are in Canada, you're lucky. If not, don't panic. I'm sure you can find your local coupon stores if you search it up. Anyhow, the deals these sites have are pretty good.

Here are some deals we bought:

  • Yeh, Yogurt and Cafe --$5 for $10--

You make your own delicious yogurt ice cream with all sort of yummy topping. It's like going to Honeyduke at Hogsmeade... delicious!

  • Beaver Tail and Moozoo --$5 for $10--

 Doesn't the food look so yummy? Totally worthy! You can see how a Beavertail looks like in the first picture. It's on the board. You can also buy Moozoo (smoothie). Look at those beautiful ice cream. Seriously, some flavors gave me toothache. That's how sweet it is. And I have high sweet tolerance! But anything can be cured with a nice, large smoothie made of fresh fruits! 

That's it for local for the moment.

Now we head to international online shopping! Fly awaaaaayyyy to....


I bought really the most random books from Amazon like Diablo: Legacy of Blood, Hunger Games (Yes I read it before it was even cool. I was such a hipster back then), a bunch of Harry Potter books, a Karen Miller's trilogy and unfortunately, I also bought some random books that I don't quite like. It happens. I was tricked by the beautiful book covers *insert guilty, kick-puppy face*. They usually come in a brown box with an Amazon smiling logo on it. The cardboard is pretty thick and hard so you don't have to be afraid of crumpled goods. From experience, the delivery is fast. Hmmm, what else? Gift certificate can be trusted. I received gift certificates on my birthday (Ahem, nerd) and I can tell you that it's safe even though it's a big amount like in the hundreds. Anyhow, Amazon is a really reliable site, at least for books. I never tried out the electronics so I can't say much. In Canada, the shipping is free if you purchase more than $25 (used to be $35 back in the days). So it's a really good deal. I loooove Free Shipping!

Visit Amazon here!

Now let's take the AliExpress! 

For cheap clothing, I shop at AliExpress. The price is ridiculously cheap compare to retail stores. And my favorite thing about this site is.... FREE SHIPPING! You heard right! The shipping is free! UNCONDITIONALLY. I bought this dress for $5 and the shipping is free! Tell me where else can you find such good deal? Of course, I did a bunch of research before I buy from AliExpress because the deal is just too good to be true. Much to my relief, the goods came by Airmail and are good quality. They don't tear and the material is soft and comfortable! So yes, I will be buying more from them.

To buy Things From Another World (TFAW)!
I was actually searching for a specific product (Final Fantasy Dissidia Squall Play Arts Kai .... see my old posts in August) when I came across this site. It was offering the cheapest Squall so I immediately jumped onto it. Of course. With a great amount of research. Much to my surprise, the Resellerrating was very very very positive. So I was sort of suspicious but I still gave it a try anyway. Now that I received the goods, I understand why people are so happy with their purchase. 
Let me explain. 

I bought Squall for $29.99 whereas the retail price is $49.99. So I was already pretty happy. So the box came like this. It has little cute Styrofoam to protect the gorgeous Squall box. At first I saw the little flyer with Zero Month. Then beneath it was Squall's box. It was only a day later that I was letting my baby brother play with the Styrofoam that we realized there was SOMETHING ELSE in there. We dispersed the Styrofoam and to our surprise.... IT'S A COMIC! 
Omg. I was quite surprised. TFAW gifted me a comic. Ha! Speaking of excellent customer's satisfaction. I love their style! You gotta admit. It's pretty sweet!

So yup! Now I am uber happy (doesn't take much to make me happy, isn't it? XP)!
TFAW has a great variety of comics and figurines. You can get the comics really cheap. Lots of DC and Marvel and co! Super cheap shipping! Simply stunning. Who knows, you might get a free copy too and one free future shipping! Sweet deal!

Let's Hang Out Montreal!

For those who wonder what is there in Canada, buckle your seatbelt for one amazing ride around town! Today, I will be talking about Montreal! And ....No. We do not live in igloos and have polar bears as rides. 

Let's start with Halloween! October 31 is every kid's favorite (next to Christmas). It's the time of the year for kids to dress up as vampires, werewolves, Spiderman and other monsters/superheroes. What's more? You get FREE candies by knocking on people's door and go "Trick or Treat"! How great is that? I used to be so excited about Halloween but then I grew up. *Cry* I guess I can always pretend to be a little girl who time traveled into the future. Anyhow. Scroll down for more wonderful things Montreal has!

Bring my baby brother to his first Treat or Trick. Finally, he is old enough to go! Woohoo! *Proud big sister grin*
The trick with Trick-or-Treat is to go to the most wealthy neighborhood. They give you the biggest chunk of candy EVER. Like one big bar of KitKat, not some cheap candy you can see at the dollar stores. Their decorations are also very, very impressive.

Sometimes, you just want to sit in a nice coffee shop and relax... Sometimes, have some friends along and act wild. Really. We were hobo-ing on the floor on beansacs. Life is good.

How to celebrate birthday student-style. Yep, my good friend bought me a Premiere Moison cake. Uber cool. We celebrated it in the college school's cafeteria then we partied at McDonald's with virtual candles. Haha. Love my friends. 

Montreal is fun. You can play giant chess on the Saint-Catherine street. 

Then you can have fun at McGill's Eaton Center. They have all sorts of stores there, not just in the building but along the main road. My favorites are the Candy Factory store (I have sweet tooth!) and Kernels (Love popcorns)! And I also have immature moment such as trying to make the figurines mate... yay maturity!

You can also buy epic sushi from Sushi Shop. They are more expensive for a reason. It's GOOD. High quality ingredients. Just awesome. If you are wondering what I am having, I will tell you. On the top left, wrapped in salmon is called Twin Salmons. Then we have the Karai on the right. At the bottom is one of the best called Volcano with seared salmon and red masago (fish eggs) on the top. 

Winter. Snow. Pretty. COLD. But no amount of cold can prevent us from hanging out and be stupid... I mean have fun!

Next, we went to Les Glacieurs. The  expensive and yummy cupcakes. They are very very cute. The toppings are the cutest I have seen. Little, detail star shaped candies...etc. We can also enjoy the atmosphere by reading wedding magazines. 

YOU ARE JEALOUS RIGHT? So am I! Of my past-self! Mother of Sweet Meal! Look at that gorgeous pizza-pancake! Summer time, perfect to sit next to open window where bypassers stare at you as you eat. Well, I bet I made lots of people jealous of this awesome lunch! For those living in Montreal and wonder which Heaven I was in, this is Cacao 70 on Saint-Catherine. The meal costs about $14. It comes with all sorts of chocolate. Dark chocolate, hazy nuts and other heavenly variations. I just couldn't help but be mesmerized by this beautiful meal.

Of course, you cannot enjoy summer without the Beaver Lake. It's a gorgeous lake at Mont Royal. In winter, the lake freezes and people can skate on it. Very neat. For now, it's all green and beautiful. Little fish swimming between the water plants, people going there to jog, get cozy, picnic...etc. A lot of fun things to do there!

So I went there with my friends for an epic BBQ. We had some trouble starting the fire and we were all pre-historic about it. Hurr Hurr. Fire. Start. Hurr Hurr!
In the end, all went well and we had a full stomach. 

Since we are all immature old brats, we brought bubbles, cards and kites to fool around. It was all worthy. We made a lot of noises though. Haha. The ice cream man must had felt awkward standing next to us as we partied hard. After awhile he ran away. 

Next we head to Old Port Montreal. It's the one of the hype-est places. Thousands of people go there everyday. There are always street performances, horse carriages, painters, fancy restaurant and other attractions. We are lucky to go there when you see the Cercle du Soleil! It's a really, really popular circus that toured around Canada and maybe international. You must be wondering why all those boats? Well, Montreal is in the middle of a gigantic river (Saint Laurent River) so of course there will be boats.

Letters to Crushes

Yes, this is going to be a really adorable and sweet post!

Warning: The following discussion is incredibly cheesy and cute.

I discovered this site about 3 years ago and I visited it on rare occasions. I think that site is absolutely brilliant. Basically, Letters to Crushes allows people of all ages and races to confess their undying crush without anyone knowing who they are. It's so rare on the internet these days. Everyone is very respectful of each other. There is no bashing or hurtful post. Isn't it nice? To be honest, it's one of the cutest sites ever.

Here are some extracts that I like. Please don't sue me. I would credit the people if I know who they are! I hold no evil intent towards the writers of the letters. I just want to spread the joy of being in love. 

Read them while listening to this amazing love song...
