The moment I saw this denim flats, I know I gotta have it.
You know what? I actually didn’t plan to make any purchases from Gmarket for the time being but my sister requested me to buy for her shoes. So here I am… with my 5th Gmarket haul. I didn’t buy a lot this time. Saving moolah actually for my next holiday. I have very valid reason to do this. Hehe
Shipping breakdown for my 5th Gmarket haul:
Ordered on 26th December.
Shipment dispatched from Gmarket warehouse on 30th December.
Received on 2nd January.
Total time: 7 days (fastest time amongst all my Gmarket purchases)
The box arrived damaged since there were plenty of empty spaces in the box (I only bought a few things ma). Oh well as long as my items are not broken. EMS Shipping cost for 9 items (3.82kg): ￦25,110 (About RM75.30). Tsk I didn’t ask my dog to pose there, he simply go and lie down there. So I included him in the picture. Hehe
In less than 3 months… there I go again. Gmarket!!!
I actually wanted to stop shopping at Gmarket because I think one day my self-control will break down. There are just too many things to buy. LOL Thankfully this time I managed to squeeze in only 10 items (had to forgo some items though… sobs sobs). What drove me to my 2nd Gmarket purchase? It’s because I was chosen as one of Gmarket’s Top Bloggers in March to which I won ￦50,000!!!
I placed 2 orders on the same day and UNFORTUNATELY I wasn’t able to combine both orders into 1 shipment. The system just won’t let me. I’m guessing it’s because I uses the cash balance of ￦50,000. Anyway I waited patiently for my 2 parcels to arrive and arrived they did! This time in a week time.

Gmarket… ahhh I LOVE YA!
What’s Gmarket? Gmarket is Korean no. 1 online shopping site and it’s my current favorite place to look for good deals. I first learned about Gmarket when I was following Faith 신의 novel news. At that time I thought Gmarket cater for books only. Later in another blog, I found out Gmarket offer a lot of other cool products from Korea such as apparel, accessories, beauty, electronics and so much more.
Basically Gmarket consist of many sellers. Each sellers will then send your order to Gmarket warehouse. Once all items has arrived at the warehouse, they will be packed and combine into 1 box and ship to you. How do you pay for your stuff? Either by credit card or Paypal.
For my 1st Gmarket haul, I bought a total of 10 items. Oh yeah… is that crazy or what? Some of them are SUPER DUPER cheap especially beauty products because I bought them during deals of the week. Seriously I cannot belief they would offer such prices. Are they crazy? Haha Read on below and you’ll know what I mean.
Here’s a breakdown of events from ordering to receiving for my 1st Gmarket order:

Here’s a round of my favorite and un-favorite things.
Seaweed Pore Perfector
A year ago (ohh that long ago?) here I wrote that I’m trying on a product that will help reduce/refine large pores. I tried the Seaweed Pore Perfector from The Body Shop because it has rave reviews from The Body Shop USA site. To maximized its effect, I uses the seaweed range facial wash, day cream and facial exfoliator as well. A year later (yes I gave it a long chances) sad to say there is not a single improvement at all. 🙁
