Buying Our Car From A Car Dealership...

~ Posted on Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 2:40 PM ~

We bought our second car last year from a car dealership shop. Our (hubby's) first car was already more than 15 years old (hubby bought it second hand when the car was 10 years old!) and it was definitely time to get another car. This car was passed down to me as I don't really use it often anyway, more like to go buy foods at the nearby shoplots in our housing area.

Anyway, we have been looking for a bigger car which can fit our growing family and at the same time, want it to have safety features and cost savings too. Hubby's first car does not have any airbag features at all, so yes, it is very risky to continue driving that car for him in the long run.

We finally found our second car at a car dealership shop after recommendation by our brother in law.

Although the car dealership shop we went to does not have a car-finder services, parts and services department and trade in services like the one offered in the car dealerships in greenville sc, it was nevertheless a new experience for us to see so many different types of cars available for sale and we also get to try and drive the car to test it out with our family to have a feel of using the car with the family as well.

Where do you buy your car?

Have You Heard of Bacterial Vaginosis?

~ Posted on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 at 4:19 PM ~

Oh wow... I learned something new today!

Bacterial Vaginosis.

The term bacterial vaginosis actually means an infection caused by an imbalance pH levels in our vagina. Yup, down there. I know, I know, when it comes to topics like this, most often we Asian women goes 'hush, hush' and sheepishly change the topic or remains quiet... but really, we should find out more on this and be equipped with the knowledge so that we don't end up getting it.

I mean, look at the image below. Up until I write this post, I have no idea what this is all about! And after reading about it and find out more on the symptoms, causes and what can be done to prevent it, I just have to share this information out to all my sisters out there!

As I was reading through the symptoms of this infection, I remembered these are the few things that I was told to look out for when I was pregnant. Unpleasant ‘fishy’ odour, abnormal discharge and discomfort down there, all these are the symptoms to be on the look out for. And I was surprised too when I read that this infection is not caused by poor hygiene. I mean, the first thing that came to my mind was 'must be not clean enough that's why causes all this infection!'. You should really read up on this infection to know more, don't just trust my words in this post.

In summary, this is an easy to prevent infection if only we know about it and prepared ourselves against it. So please for the sake of your health, read up on this!

I Am An Online Shopaholic...

~ Posted on Monday, August 6, 2012 at 3:45 PM ~

Hi! My name is Jenny! This is going to sound pretty embarrassing... I have a confession to make.

I am an online shopaholic.

Yes, I go crazy at buying things online ESPECIALLY when there are discount codes and vouchers which help me save money in my purchases! I hope I don't come across as a cheapskate but with prices of things getting more and more expensive nowadays, why not consider saving while still be able to buy the things you wanted to buy?

I just came across a website offering Debenhams discount code and Next Voucher Codes. Boy oh boy! They are calling me! Must-resist-and-finish-typing-this-post-first!!!

OK, back to my post, I mean, if you are going to buy the things anyway, why not scout for the best deals?! After all, who wouldn't want to save some money and still feel good knowing they get the best deals right?!

To be honest, the main reason why I prefer to shop online nowadays is the convenience of shopping. From the comfort of my own home, I can easily compare the items across different websites, choose the best deals, not easily be swayed by the salesperson (I am easily convinced to buy things and feel guilty if I stepped into a shop without buying anything!), purchase them and wait for the items to arrive to me!

So far, I have bought stuff like books (tons and tons of it!), clothing for myself and my 2 kids, toys, household items, cupcakes, organic puffs for my girl, heck, the latest online purchases I made (just a few weeks ago) was the survival kit I got for my hubby's 32nd birthday!

So, what sort of things have you bought online with awesome savings?
