About The Blogger

My name is Tammy Lim and I am an award winning blogger from Top 10 Malaysia Magazine and Cleo Malaysia Magazine. I have been blogging since 2008 and I am also the founder of a local Malaysian beauty & lifestyle 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.

  • Prestige's Fragrance & Cosmetic Sales report


    I reach Armada Hotel at 10.30am. Long Q to get in.

    1/2 way through I saw the war inside

    behind me war also starting

    at the bagging table
    (no handbags/bags allowed need to secure in plastic bag)

    this is the guarded entrance

    omg finally reach!
    (credit card rm80 above)

    OMG it was a hell hole waiting to pay in Armada Hotel for this sales. They DID NOT IMPROVED AT ALL from all their previous sales experience! what the hell is wrong with them? the line starts from the entrance circling the whole meeting room right up to the U turn to cashier counters. DO BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I HAVE BEEN STANDING FOR 4 HOURS in this stupid Q since noon. I went there at 10.30am, 30mins waiting to get in. When I finally got in, i started writing all the price n products down until noon. I left at 4.30pm can u believe it? My feet is in pain, my backache, and I am so hungry! dam u Prestige, why can't u have a better paying system with more than 2 counters working??? The line is so slow!!! u guys sux man! from then till now!

    this is how it looks inside

    so many peolpe this time around!!!

    first day Q (orange line)

    Basically the Q started from the entrance till the end of each corner until it reach a U-turn before the cashier counters. There was 3 counters but only 2 were open during noon time. The first day Q practically filled the entire room. There were more people Q-ing than shopping. It was a horrible Q that lasted until evening.

    see how pack the room is

    Very tiring day first day that I regretted going!. This sales do have a lot of affordable perfumes and some has increase by a few ringgit since the last sale. 80% of the products do not have manufacturing labels (an attempt to hide it?). The whole room smells of perfume I feel that I might get nose cancer from staying there from 11am-4.30pm. If there paying Q wasn't that shiatty, it would've been a nice experience just like last year's sale.

    Q-cutters is at an extreme here. Manners and years of grooming by your parents fly out the window with even pregnant ladies trying to cut your Q by pretending to be on the handphone. This seems to be the no.1 Q-Cutting Technique in warehouse sales. Talk on the phone, slowly inch your way into the line. Proceed to play games/sms on your phone ignoring the angry people behind you. Aunties also resorted to harassing people who would be reaching the payment counters soon by first befriending you, pitying u for standing hours there and then asking you if u mind help paying for one or two items. Once u agree to help, their family/friends or more item will show up. Lesson to be learn - ignore the harrasers.

    Car park is rm5 per entry outside the hotel. Lrt is nearby (Asia Jaya Lrt Station). Taxis is everywhere. Avoid this place during after office hours as it's quite jam here in the evening. A&W is a station away (Taman Jaya). Please don't bring children and if you're pregnant, don't go when everyone will be there. Early morning, before lunch should be ok. NO BAGS/ACCESORIES/GIFTS that comes with perfume in retail shops but sold separately for the past 2 sales starting Corus Hotel and this one. I wonder why? However judging from the 2nd day response, it was a lot more better than the first day I gone through. IS THIRD DAY A CHARM?

    * going to call it a night. I have to attend Stila's Workshop Event in Pavillion later at 10am! sigh


    1. you went there again? you krazi or what?

      so, what's your haul for second day? i didn't have chance to try the intimate by beckham, otherwise might have bought. antonio is nice but not lasting, huhuhu. as mother always say, cheap cheap no good, good good no cheap....

    2. and what are you doing up so late? no need to sleep? how's Boi2? Hope he gets well soon, send my regards to him.

    3. I went to the wine warehouse sale instead. RM20 per bottle of wine, bought 12 and a rose mateus.

    4. miu...anything to let go??
