About The Blogger

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over a decade now. I work full-time in my dream company while juggling love, life, this cute blog and a blogger's community called The Butterfly Project. People often tell me that I'm a wonder woman, but in reality - if it's something you love, you can do wonders.

When I'm not wondering, I'll be on my computer searching for the next fountain of youth or hunting down a fantastic deal. I'm also a shopaholic, wanderluster, spa enthusiast and proud hipster who loves planning special occasions and surprises for her loved ones.

  • Cold Wars with Cold Storage


    Bought Chicken Soup was charged RM8-99
    (original price rm6-99)
    (must be too relax thinking Cold Storage won't repeat same mistake)

    Bought Chicken Soup x 2
    cold storage charged me rm8-99 x 2

    Bought Chicken Soup Can x 2
    cold storage charged RM8-99 x 2

    Ok ok I know you are going to screw me up when I say that I did not really officially complain to Cold Storage Management yet about them always trying to ROB ME out of few ringgit or cents. SO I thought ok maybe they will clean up their act ever since I been telling them I got overcharged all the time. Imagine this, last week I was overcharged by rm2-00 for a can of soup (and I bought 2 cans!) I was given a refund on the spot once I voiced out (suprisingly they don't need to go check the item at the shelves this time!). Yesterday I went to buy groceries again and I was overcharged again RM2 each for 2 cans of soup! (my bf paid so he didn't realize anything). I only realize it when I got home.. slap my forehead about not checking what he paid for.

    SO I WAS DAM PISS, I called up the number on the receipt. Guess what? it's their supervisor at the Cold Storage I shop at. I had dealt with her before and I realize no use calling the number coz they never clean up their act or APOLOGIZE!!! How many times I got OVERCHARGED NOW? 6-8times??? and that's the ones that I have evidence to show!


    UPDATE 3/7/09: I was overcharged not once but $%^^& freakin many times! read this!
    Did I miss any blog post out? I can't even remember how many times I rant about this stupid matter here. And I was too RELAX thinking they'll brush up! No Sireee.. looks like they're quite happy ripping customers off! especially the EXPATRIATES living arount Mont Kiara! I'm going to dig out all my EVIDENCE, POST THEM HERE and Make an OFFICIAL COMPLAIN TO NEWSPAPER AND COLDSTORAGE AND CONSUMER TRIBUNAL!

    1. email cold storage (done)
    2. write official complaint letter
    - send by fax, post & A.Registered Post (yes all 3 methods)
    3. C.C the letter
    - consumer tribunal & Malay Mail Newspaper
    4. write to MP (DAP) in charge of Mont Kiara area
    - Mr. Lim Lip Eng whom I had helped create & design his campaign manifesto and flyers for his election in March. So happy I could help abit.

    oi pls don't laugh at my poster
    I did this in half and hour before sending it to print!
    it's free anyway I volunteer to help his campaign
    nobody complain ah!!!!
    it was worth it because he won!
    Jom Ubah!


    1. Cold Storage is same management as Giant Supermarket.

    2. apparently cold storage owed by my friend's father (ex colleague)

      go for consumer complain tribunal lol

    3. I'm in Singapore and I got cheated a few times, always after I've left and walked off for a long distance! I got cheated of SGD$5+ before, the change was short. When I walked back they said I couldn't prove that they short changed me.

      This has also happened some other times with loose change. I'm not sure if it's because the people they are are dishonest or what. Usually they hire PRC students who seem really uninterested and bored. But I'm just saying.

      Yes, I support you in reporting this and make a BIG DEAL of this!!! This is amounting to CHEATING!!!! IZZI NET, no, LOUZZY NET CHEAT ME AGAIN, that's why on Wednesday, I got no Internet!!! Luckily, got one IZZI staff from the sales dept helped me. If not, till now I wont have internet!

      If you wanna go to complain about Cold Storage, sure, no problem, I can even drive you there, but you need to navigate me la....cos i dun know Shah Alam area well. hehe!

    9. go tribunal sometime is good and bad...let me decribe to u good n bad part ar....
      good : satisfaction and sometime got newspaper people come take pic and ur story will out next day ( usually chinese paper)and u get ur 2 bucks back....

      bad :waiting lor...what u lose what u get lor...u cheat 2 bucks u get back 2 bucks lor....u wana charge time ( not sure can or not) , petrol ( i think can) , parking ( i think can also). basically small amount if tribunal...need spend time to go tribunal.....if cold storage rep not come u auto win.

      first u file complain...then tribunal ask u send tribunal letter ( pink one) if settle out of tribunal when u send the letter that also can happen,mostly ppl wont come =.=""

      then wait for the date then u go tribunal court then they agree both side agree i mean ok...then how much u claim how much they pay u lor....mebbe like ur case is rm2 or more la....( hope u really dig them out big amount )

      then agree liao got like 2 or 3 weeks u get ur money from cold storage

      see many step

      but dont give up bcus i also support u if you do that the BEST one is if u get PRESS ATTRACTION then BOMB landed on cold storage =.="" u noe lah.....all the SI LAI ( auntie2 at home buy stuff at supermarket) read CHINESE PAPERS one....but sometime THE STAR also come ...but not always like the chinese press.....
