MY EXPERIENCE WITH ONLINE SHOP

In this millennial era, where anything is available online, people would rather shop online than buy the stuff that they want at the actual store. One of the main reason is because people don’t have the time to go to the store because of their demanding working hours or would prefer to use that time to do something more important, or, in my case, I just hate human interaction ;P. I mean, online shopping is as simple as picking up your phone.

Of course there are pro and con when it comes to shop online.

I have never really encountered the con (this bad) until recently.

At first, I don’t wanna make a big deal out of it and it’s not like I’m new to this. This is happening to any of us and it’s not like my post about this gonna stop all of the online shop scammers out there. You would think that this is nothing and I’m just being extra. But you know what? The hell with that. I need to share this so that I can move on and stop thinking about it anymore. So here is my-not-so-fun story about online shopping.

I was looking for a phone case, a cute ones. The phone I’m currently using is Xiaomi Redmi 3S. Unless your phone is either iPhone or Samsung you can forget about having cute phone cases. It’s really hard to find one that fit with my aesthetic. Until one day, I came across this Instagram account called pinkpastelcase—that sell custom made phone cases. Their designs are so aesthetic and looks legit. So I hit them up and tell them which design that I want, transfer the money and confirmed my payment. You know the drill.

One week has passed since I confirmed my payment and no further follow up from the seller whether my phone cases being made or the estimation time when they’re ready to ship my order. So I asked them on their LINE account.

No response.

A month later, still no response. So I DM them on Instagram.

Surprise surprise I just got hit and run by a scammer.

What makes me angry was not because they took my money [okay, I’m lowkey mad], but because their lack of response. Even when I emailed or commented on their Instagram, as I’m writing this, I still got no response while their account still active posting new pictures, probably to scam their next customer.

This incident makes me more cautious when it comes to online shopping. Especially the ones that sell their products on Instagram. I become more “Impatient” when the seller didn’t respond immediately  after I paid my order or when it took so long for them to send my order. I’m fully aware it can be annoying from the seller point of view, but I just can’t help it.  They made me like this.

So be careful guys. Especially my Indonesian readers, please take note, to never order anything from pinkpastelcase.

Until next time.

We Do Smile

Hey what’s wrong? Are you okay? Why you never smile?

Pffffttt … I hate it. I mean why? I am okay and I do smile, piss off!! You don’t have to ask me every single freaking time. The nerves.

It is the same problem I’ve got everywhere. I have one semester in this class where the lecturer constantly mocking me because -based on him- I never smile. He was like “Hey you, the girl who never smile, do you know the answer?” “I will give your test result if you’re smiling” “Hey what’s up? Smile.” “Smile…smile…smile” On and on he continued humiliate me in front of the class. Only god knows how I survived that class. He thought it was funny, it wasn’t. It’s annoying. He had a daughter, I hope his daughter won’t have the same experience as me *sarcasm*

The thing is it’s not like I don’t smile. It’s my face. Or like my best-friend said, that I have default bitch face. So it’s not like I never smile. I do smile.

Most people first impression of me was like “I thought you were a stuck up bitch, but you’re actually so nice.” Yeah right.

What is it with society? Why when men don’t smile they become these cool and all sexy creatures, but when women do it, they become bitch. I don’t get it. Why?

That is why I could relate to Kristen Stewart so much. She constantly got critics from media that she never smile. SHE DOES SMILE. AND IT’S BEAUTIFUL

See? ALL SMILES. If you expect her to be all smiling when paparazzi hunts her, well try to be on her shoes. 23 years old girl and all these nasty old men shoving their cameras to your face and shouting names. How do you feel when someone call you slut? Bitch? You want to smile at that? Of course no!

“No matter how many times she smiles, they’ll put in the one picture where she’s not smiling,” – Robert Pattinson

”Some people get the wrong idea, you know. If you’re quiet and you’re just not the most gregarious person, that you’re like.. I don’t know, self-involved, rude possibly, frigid. I get that a lot from people who don’t know me, like online all you guys think I never smile, ever. It’s not true. I do smile sometimes.”  – Kristen Stewart

Yes, yes we do smile.

 

Youtube Obsession

Hi guys!

Akhir-akhir ini gue lagi suka banget nonton Youtube. Dari mulai web-series, beauty videos, books videos, atau video blog (vlog)  Ini beberapa channel yang gue subscribe di Youtube.

  • ItsKingsleyBitch

Awalnya gue nonton Kingsley karena di twitter gue pada heboh banget ngomongin dia, karena waktu tahun 2012 kemarin dia bikin “OVEREXPOSED 2012” yaitu daftar yang berisi 30 hal/kejadian yang menurut Kingsley overexposed di tahun 2012. Lalu mengadakan polling yang nantinya dipilih 12 finalis. Dan  Kristen Stewart Selingkuh dari Robert Pattinson termasuk kedalam 12 finalis tersebut. Berhubung gue fansnya Kristen Stewart, jadinya gue pantengin terus deh tuh dia ada di peringkat berapa. Nah, sejak saat itu gue jadi suka nontonin videonya Kingsley, dan awal mulanya obsesi gue sama Youtube.

Selain bikin video overexposed, dia juga ngomongin tentang pop culture, web series ‘Really B Really?“, Ask Kingsley, atau cuma ngomongin kejadian yang dia alamin. Yang gue suka dari si Kingley ini, karena dia lucu banget, gaya ngomongnya yang khas, and he cursed a loooot which is that’s what make it funny, he just doesn’t care what people think about him.

Subscribe to his channel! Because he is amazing, flawless and everything. 😀

  • JacksGap

Cara Ingrid nyampein produk-produk favoritnya tuh enak banget, udah gitu dia cantik tanpa atau dengan make up. Gue sih suka banget sama style-nya Ingrid. Trus, trus, Ingrid punya kucing yang super duper LUCU. Namanya Nugget. Yang bikin gue makin cinta sama Ingrid.

Ini ibarat surga bagi orang-orang yang suka baca buku kaya gue. Oh buat yang suka anime, kalian pasti bakal suka sama channelnya Priscilla 😉
