My good experience with Easyparcel

Hi folks!

If you have read my bad experience with an online shop here, to be fair, there are also good online stores/companies I have come across being an avid online shopper; be it air tickets, groceries, food, clothing, baby items, electrical items, mobile phones, computer parts, you named it.

I have tried buying online for many different items, ranging from different companies; both overseas and locally. There are companies which I would certainly go for the second round as well as recommending them to others. There are also companies or online sellers which are a sure-no-go for me.

As online seller, you have to maintain a good reputation to have recurring business. People would spread news (good or bad) about your products and services fast and far across the world with the use of social media, etc. With the mushrooming of online stores, we, customers are spoiled for choice, why would we want to patron a store which gives us bad service or impression?

Kudos to those sellers who delivers promptly, refund promptly and trust-worthily (with not much hassles), provide products which are true to what they are advertising online, would go the extra mile to provide free samples, vouchers and even provide useful guides on how to use their products.

Once, I need to send a rather fragile and important (and bit costly item) to my friend as I do not have time to drive to her place (even though it’s at Klang Valley) and hand it to her directly. I have come across this company called easyparcel sometime ago which provides the option of fetching the item from my place (regardless of the volume) and it has a few courier companies under its flagship, you can find poslaju, skynet, etc. So, I thought of trying out this company and check out their service.

Being inexperienced in shipping a parcel myself, yeah usually i am at the receiving end, i love receiving parcels as it felt like Christmas everyday (haha), and being a first-timer using the service, I didn't know that I have to prepare the envelope of the chosen shipping company myself. As I do not have any of the skynet envelope, i checked with the skynet staff whether he has any to spare that i could perhaps buy from him when he came to my place for collection. He said no worries the staff at the office will do it for you. I was a bit surprised and taken aback but being the easily trusting person I am, i am very much-relieved and took the staff's name and signature on the collection form before passing my parcel to him, nicely-wrapped up in a box with bubble wrap and waited in anticipation.

Being a first-time user of easyparcel and also skynet, of course i have my worries. Thus, i checked on many reviews online and to my dismay, there are bad reviews than good ones.

Thus, when my parcel did not arrived safely and punctually the next day, i am obviously getting rather worried. The first tracking error code did not indicate the reason why the parcel did not arrive safely.
Note: I feel the tracking system should have a link at least to show what each error code represent.

Next day, I found the code has some description, it stated "delayed due to weather condition", obviously as the delivery person is using motorbike.

Giving them the benefits of doubt after verifying with my friend if there's any bad weather condition the day before. Indeed it was raining quite heavily at her place. So, again I waited for the resend, finally at the end day, the parcel arrived safely and also placed nicely in the flyer.

Now, that is obviously better than what has been said about this courier company. At least my experience with easyparcel throughout the whole ordeal is a good one. Their online support is responsive and helpful. But, skynet contact no. is not reachable.

All in all, i can't say skynet is the best courier company until i have more deliveries with them and also other courier companies before i could really compare between their services, but the fact that i don't have to travel to their physical office and that the user-friendly easyparcel website is a good experience for me.

So, folks, if you have a parcel to send, why not give it a try at easyparcel, what's more with the free MYR25 credits, it's a great time to try out their service for FREE!

Happy Shopping and Parceling folks!

Letting go-Extra set of Young Living Dew Drop Essential Oil Ultrasonic Diffuser

Hi Folks!

I have been using Young Living essential oils for almost two years now. I got to know the therapeutic benefits of essential oils after ZS got admitted twice in the hospital due to respiratory issues. Whooping cough, wheezing, and also for bronchopneumonia when he was 5 months and 11 months old (I still remember it was November and his lip turned blue on Deepavali eve). It is such scary experience for me.

After he was discharged, I tried many things, I bought the Medklinn , brought him to osteopath (yep the quite well-known and good-looking osteopath recommended by many mommies), brought him to see TCM (will share more about it in another post).

When my younger sister gave me some of her precious drops of essential oil the day before Chinese New Year, on the eve of CNY itself, ZA started wheezing again and most clinic near my in-laws’ place are closed then. Thus, I rub the essential oil on his sole during the night time and he managed to sleep better. The next day, the wheezing sound was gone.

I am very thankful to my sis who introduced me to the oils. As what I was informed by TCM really alarmed me. I shall share more about it in another post so that this won’t be such a lengthy post for you all to read.

The oils have also been helping the older two who often have sinus issues the moment they woke up every morning.  And, I have been using the diffuser in the kids room and even got a set of diffuser and lavender oils for my mom to help her to sleep better at night and she loves it as she could sleep better thus feel better during the daytime while taking care of my sisters' children.

Thus, folks, I have got an extra set of Young Living Dew Drop Essential Oil Ultrasonic Diffuser to let go at MYR230 (retail price is about MYR373) for anyone who would like to get a set to try.

Create a good start for your health.

Bad experience with 11street seller

Hi folks!

I have been using some of the online selling apps for several purchases, like Lazada, Uniqlo, Shopee and 11street which offers some discounts code from time to time.

But, it comes with a risk, so do read the return, cancellation and refund carefully. 

I am very disappointed with my recent purchase of Biogreen O'Kid Oatmilk recently with this seller (when i bought from him i did not check on the reviews on this store), and when the parcel arrived..much to my disappointment...the can was BADLY-DENTED.

I took the image, reported to the seller, to 11street and even commented on this product page and this is the reply I am getting from the seller.

unreasonable...the packing is in good condition...

So, it's our bad luck then if your packing is good condition and yet the product still arrived in such BADLY-DENTED condition??? 

Even though i am in no position to teach a seller how to package his products, but being an experienced online shopper, i felt i should show him what a good packing looks like:
  1. Lotsa bubble wrap
  2. Leave no space in between the product and the box (as you never know how the shipping company handle your products, some may even being thrown about from one delivery point to another)
Here's an example how a good packaging looks like, bubble wrapped in hardboard paper, boxes and another plus point for customer, free samples!!!

And what did that seller who claimed his product is sent in good packaging? Merely put the product loosely enclosed with a polystyrene and directly into the Gdex envelope. If poor packaging is not the reason for the item to arrived badly-dented, then it must be they sent me a badly-dented can????

Either way, shouldn't the seller refund me in full? I have reported the case in the stipulated time frame for cancellation and refund and yet they state my request as UNREASONABLE. Bad customer service and truly disappointing. 

So beware when you're shopping online folks!

Hopefully no other victim falls into the same situation as i did.
