Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

I Bought RM109 Blueberries

6.05.2016


insert your frequently used cursed word here

Imagine during check out; you're paying RM250 for your groceries at an "atas" supermarket and think that is normal because well maybe your three bags of fruits and vegs costs that much at an expat infused supermarket in Bangsar.

Well, to be fair, I took a half day off work because I was hit by viral fever (took a week to recover) and wanted to get some good Vitamin C boost by going to my favourite grocer in Bangsar Shopping Center, which is 5 mins away from my office. During checkout I was too tired to notice how much was charged individually for my items, I normally check because, in Malaysia, it's quite notorious of supermarkets to charge you the "wrong price."

When I got home, I happily told my bae (it's short for baby, seems like a trend now to use this term) I got lots of fruits, including his favourite blueberries which he has to have every morning for breakfast. Baby G (my bae) went "OMG why did you buy RM109 blueberries?".

I went "OMG!" smacked my head. I should've been more careful to buy "normal" blueberries because this grocer sells all kinds of fruits, imported from Japan and blah blah. Strawberries could go up to RM100 here so I figured, I must've made a mistake but wasn't I sure it said RM10.90 on the board?

I checked my receipt, and it says fresh produce can be exchange in 2 days time. Like a mad woman, I called up Sam's Grocer and spoke to a lady about my accidental expensive blueberries mishap. She said I could come back tomorrow to change it. A sigh of relief.... phew.

A few minutes later, I received a call again from them. The lady apologised and said this was a mistake from their end, the blueberries is RM10.90 and not RM109.00. I could bring my receipt and get a refund for what I paid, no need to bring the blueberries back. PHEW! So I wasn't crazy enough to buy RM109 blueberry pack! And a lesson to me to keep my eye on the cash check out next time or just don't shop when I'm sick.

Fast forward, I did return with my receipt but was surprised I was still charged for the blueberries after thinking it may be a token of goodwill to waived it off due to the wrong price tag on it. Especially when it's an angmoh grocer.

SO...

Lesson No.1 - Check your prices during checkout always
Lesson No.2 - Charge the grocer your Uber fare if they don't waive off the wrongly charged item.

  7. Hi everyone, fix your broken relationship and marriage right now no matter how hopeless your situation seems!! I am so excited sharing my testimony with everyone here about how i saved my marriage and got my husband back after a divorce..I am Natasha Hayes by name and i live in England. I'm a happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{Unityspelltemple@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past{7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our marriage was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster Dr Unity. So, i will advice you out there, if you have any problem contact Dr Unity and i guarantee you that he will help you and you will be the next to share your testimony to every one in the world!!.

  8. Hello every body my name is Synder Anderson I just want to share my experience with the world on how Lord Alika help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1 kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost e very time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… and my Husband also got a new job and our lives became much better web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news..contact him on lordalikaspelltemple@yahoo.co.uk or +13217666393. web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http

  9. My wife is back!!! my name is Gakuba Rauzan. I had a problem with my wife six months ago,which lead to us apart. When she broke up with me,i was no longer myself,I felt so empty inside. Until a friend of mine told me about a spell caster that helped in same problem too, that she found on a television program. i emailed the spell caster and I told him my problem and I did what he asked me to briefly make. To cut the long story short,before i knew what was happening,not up to 48 hours,my wife gave me a call and she come back to me and told me she was sorry about what has happened, she now tell me every day she love and miss me. I'm so grateful to this spell caster Dr. Ogudugu and i will not stop publishing his name on the internet just for the good work he has been doing. If you need his help, you can email him at(greatogudugu@gmail.com)and he will also help you. website: www.greatdrogudugusolutiontemple.webs.com
