Weekends at Tampines Mall

1 Sep

I know it’s only Wednesday.  But I’m looking forward to my weekend already.  Are you looking forward to it too????

I am beginning to love Tampines Mall.

I never thought that it would be bustling with activities & so jam-packed with people!!!  I love the life & action that Tampines Mall has to offer, except for creatures below the age of 12 because that just has an OMG scary factor of 9/10 for me.

On 1 of my trips there, these 2 kids were screaming & yelling & fighting with each other over one of those kiddy rides.  And 1 kid pushed the other kid over the ride, which caused him to land on MY FOOT.  I almost ended his life by stomping on his little head, but I resisted.  Firstly, because I noticed that his gorilla-looking father was nearby & I could not tackle a size larger than me by 10 times.  Secondly, it was not worth getting my Adidas sandals dirtied with brain juice.  Sigh.  So, that left my little pinky toe throbbing in helpless irritation & there was nothing I can do about revenge.

It’s like someone inflicted pain on me but I cannot punch him back in the face because I feel like I will get a red card or something.  This is similar to footballers who get injured in rough tackles, but they still got to grit their teeth & bear with it.

I am telling you.  It is sheer agony.

I have a feeling that my future kids will be monsters.  It is going to be karma for me.  The more I hate kids, the worse their characters will be.  Oh Lord, I pray for my soul & migraines.

Anyway…

During my previous trips to Tampines Mall, I found a very interesting Korean-inspired clothing store called Miss Emily, if I’m not wrong, it is located either on the 2nd or 3rd storey.  The clothes fit my twiggy body nicely & the prices are affordable.  I bought like 3 tops & 1 flowery pink dress.  Best of all, they cost less than $100, but also because they were having a promotion at that time.

Gossip Time!!! You know what, I think in future I shall be brave & take a photo of the stores.  I actually held back doing that because there was once I was attempting to take a photo of this store in Bishan Junction 8 & the sales assistant RAN out and stopped me.  She was probably paranoid that I was trying to steal their clothing designs… *rolls eyes*… But then again, the lady boss of that store was acting all high & haughty when I shopped at their store a couple of times.  There was once when I asked for a new piece & she went into the storeroom but came out with the display piece & trying to pass it off as a new piece.  I knew it was the display piece because the same thread was loosened at the exact same spot on the shirt!!!  The argument that happened after that was another story.  Sigh.  Such dishonest sellers kill the trust with us consumers.  Anyway, that store has closed down & moved elsewhere, but I don’t know where.

Also, at Tampines Mall, I discovered they carry this brand – Elianto, which offers the Organic Infusion range that is free from paraben, chemical & fragrance.  Woooo… organic, right???  Organic is supposed to be healthy & safe & all kinds of lovely.  I have bought a cleanser & a face mask from this range.  I had bought a body lotion & some hand creams from another range.  I KNOW I’M BEING PSYCHOTIC WITH ALL THESE SKINCARE, but I cannot help feeling like I need to save my aging skin!!!  My reviews will be coming up pretty soon!!!  I have been using them for quite some time already.  You may take a look at Elianto’s website HERE.

Recently, Kiehl’s has opened on ground floor right beside Macdonalds!!!  They were holding a contest of Spot-The-Difference which I had recently posted up on my blogsite HERE.  I first read about them in Her World magazine on the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.

The product write-up was so good that I decided to visit their outlet.  I met this very cute girl called Janelle.  She provided lots of useful information about the various products, gave suggestions & recommended products that are suitable for my skin.  I was comfortable with her service as she was informative & not pushy.

The best part???  She gave me some samples without even me asking for them!!!  Well, ok, I only asked for a sample of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, but she gave me other samples as well.

Generous, hor?

I have been using all these samples for the past week or so.  They seem to last more than a week as the contents inside are quite generous!!!  It is really great that they are given out samples for consumers to test out first before deciding to get the real-size.  My reviews will be coming up pretty soon too!!!  This is so great that Kiehl’s is giving out samples because I have CRAZY sensitive skin & very prone to getting  eczema at the corner of my chin.

I was looking for a photo of what eczema would look like & found this photo from Dermnet.com HERE.  See below:

What the hell???

It looks like this person put a vacuum cleaner over the mouth while it was switched on.

(O_O)

The only thing that feels like a pity is that Kiehl’s prices are REALLY REALLY… REALLY high & that is the only thing that deters me from getting their products.

The Midnight Recovery Concentrate alone costs like…. SGD$90.

A 15ml eye cream costs about SGD$50 or more.

Their facial packs cost about SGD$60 or more.

(this baby is soooo cute!! I got this photo over the internet, can’t trace the source though)

My friend in the US has been using their products for a long time & she has been satisfied ever since.  People in the US will of course get Kiehl’s at a more affordable price.  Lucky them.

I also did some internet research on its products & there were mixed reviews on almost all its products.  Same for me too, but I’ll leave my reviews to another day.

Oh oh… I WANT TO COMPLAIN!!!!  A shout-out to the Mango outlet at Tampines Mall.

I am VERY VERY VERY disappointed with Annie Lye.  She’s the auntie with the getai hairstyle.

I admit I am very particular about purchasing clothings.  I will prefer to have a new piece that hasn’t been tested by others.  God knows what kinds of armpit sweats are on the jacket or people picking their noses & wiping the sticky snot on the clothes, etc etc.

This auntie Annie told me that the jacket was a display set, since I really loved the jacket, I was ready to make an exception provided there were NO DEFECTS.  I examined it & found that the sewing was out of place on the front of the jacket.  When I pointed it out to her, you know what her response was???

She said, “Only this part, right?  The rest are still ok”, and then she pushed the jacket back to me over the counter.

Excuse me???

ONLY this part???

The friggin Mango jacket costs like SGD$99, okay???  What do you mean by ONLY this part???  Why should I pay 99 bucks for a defective jacket????  Other customers paid $99 for the same jacket with no defects.

*fumes*

Since there is a defect, you should at least ACKNOWLEDGE it & asked if I still wanted to accept it.  NOT push it back to me like it was nothing or like it costs 99 cents.

UGH.  Mango should probably send her over to “Can You Serve?”

On a last note, me & my friends got fixated with these teenagers playing some dancing arcade game where they do this stepping moves.

Sorry for being ‘uncool’, but do these dancing arcade machine games have a name???

These teens are SO GOOD that they did this 2-player round of game where they can even exchange places.  Don’t get what I mean?

The guy in pink was originally on the left as shown below:

Then as the music progressed, they step-danced & were required to cross over to the other person’s platforms.  So in the below photo shows the black-shirt guy on the left this time & the pink-shirt guy on the right:

I can’t believe that they managed to multi-task at cross over while step-dancing & looking at the screen & getting high sorry, HIGH is an UNDERstatement, should be INSANELY high combo hits of 400++!!!!!  The directional arrows on the screen were flashing so fast that I cannot even identify any shapes!!!  If I were to try this stage out with another friend, I think we will both end up in a twisted mess.

HOW DO THESE GUYS DO IT?!??!

1,000,000,000 practise hours on the arcade???

Over SGD$100,000,000 spent on practising???

I am so impressed with these guys.  They put the cool in step-dancing arcades, while spending hundreds of dollars training for this thing.  If I was a parent, I would prefer my monster kids to spend their money on this arcade instead of throwing it all on alcoholic drinks.

This should be declared a sport & be included in YOG or the Olympics.

Isn’t Tampines Mall eventful???
