Once a while, I’ll receive an email that leaves me shaking with anger and seething with rage. When that happens, I’ll want to talk about it. Well, I’d received something in my inbox that’s so brazen, it hit a raw nerve. I was contemplating if I should blog about it but when I received that same email again yesterday, I knew I couldn’t keep mum. If you shop a lot online, particularly on some very popular local shopping sites in Singapore and Malaysia, this concerns you. And if you’re wondering why you have been receiving unsolicited sales emails, this may also tell you why.

I read somewhere that people will gravitate towards dogs that look like themselves. So I’m wondering how much does Gracie resemble me. So far, I haven’t heard of anyone telling me that she looks like me; all I hear is, “oh my, she’s SO CUTE!” but I don’t hear the same compliment heaped on the owner though. But thank goodness! As it is, the sudden overload of cuteness is a bit overwhelming. But nah, I’m not grumbling really cos I love my little furkid! There are days I miss her so much when I head to work and my son is complaining that I love her more than him. LOL.

Instead of doing the last minute thing, I’ve been accumulating some small items as Christmas gifts. These are items randomly selected like stationery, accessories and cosmetics.

Now I just have to figure out what to get for guys.

I don’t usually notice manufacturing dates of cosmetics that often because most products I get usually only feature expiry dates. However, I noticed that two of the items I redeemed from VMV Hypoallergenics had the manufacturing dates printed on their packaging and they were dated in 2011. Like one the items featured in the picture you see here is a pressed powder with a manufacturing date of April 2011 and expiry date of April 2014.
