being frugal part 2~

Saturday, July 21, 2012 - written by the Queen, iera marhe
since i've promised to continue the saga (aiceh~) of being frugal. 

for this one, i'm gonna blabber about books.

you see, i'm a reader. i love to read a lot. i just don't have the time you see.

books are expensive! to me it is. i don't mind spending but as said i don't have the money.

Well. if we are in the same boat, no fret! i've got a few solution!!! believe me it will get you more than enough!


BookXcess




Ever heard of this place? Truthfully i will never set my foot in this place! this is because i will go crazy if i ever been to this place. A friend told me they have this section for RM10 and you can get good books here cheaper than average! The staff is very friendly. 

The physical shop is situated in AmCorp Mall if i'm not mistaken. you can even get there with public transport. Basically you have no reason not to go to BookXcess. I don't go because I cannot afford not to buy books. Irony much? haha~ If you're not in Klang Valley area or KL area, fret not! they offer delivery but only to state outside of Selangor! it's awesome!

Just google BookXcess and you're on your way to book heaven on earth. Don't you worry you can contact them through Facebook and Twitter as well :)

Big Bad Wolf


Yep!  the BigBadWolf sale! if i'm not mistaken it's an annual event! i cant even mention the feeling of going to the sale. the only expression is OH MY GOD! that's the only expression i can find. You can save a lot! Trust Me! 

last year's BBW sale i spend exactly RM100 for books that i bought for my niece. The books are still usable and in good condition until now. My newlyborn nephew can use it as well. The books at the sale are in good condition but same not. Still it's ok for me though it's not in a good and mint condition. 

i'm not sure whether they will have it this year but erm if they have, i'm saving my duit raya for the sale. LOL

Lejen Press and Fixi Books


Don't get me even started on this! In simple word, good books, young writer and great publication. The most important is cheap! The writers are ordinary people who have talent in writing. Basically, the writers are bloggers, I think though not all of them but mostly. Ouh before i missed out on Terfaktab as well. There's just a lot you just need to find them under the radar.

Normal Blogs~

this is the cheapest way to read. Don't just read gossip blogs. i know it's tempting i did it as well. read good blogs! i heard nadhirabrundage writes good blogs. i haven't visit it yet! namyrasheed as well. you can find these blogs anywhere. 

Follow people from twitter. new people means new world. i also find some who blog through their twitter account. Follow more people ok? Sometimes, through twitter you can find good blogs to read!




you see~ there's a lot of ways to save your money :)

Late Night Awesomeness~

So since mostly everyone is going back for the holidays, we decided to go out and have some supper tonight~

Well, Mr.Boyfie and Api and Arep are not going home yet because of Labrat3.0 second show but it was cancelled. hence, they are here in Shah Alam. Akin is also here to settle up her AE; the thesis. Frankie and Man are staying in Shah Alam working at the new Austin Chase in Plaza Masalam.

So, we went to Austin Chase first. Eat up a little bit. Not as bad. Fefeling Coffee Planet sikit.

Then, the best part! we went to SS2 and eat up super late dinner at Murni! AWESOME!

My dish for the night is Spaghetti Carbonara and Fair Lady; the drink.
The restaurant is awesome. Big Dish! if you are small portion eater, please just order 1 dish for 2. nobody will say bad things about you. no worries!

once the picture is uploaded i will add some here for your view ok?
no pictures from me since my baby 'sleep soundly' :))

hihi. back to braceletting~

the same feeling

well, not many know that Chixbeaut Haus! is mine. My own baby.


yep~ i used to sell the pre-order Korean clothes and stuff but i succumb to my defeat. it's not about competition but it's because of i cannot stand my failure. i wasn't holding on. I give up on it too easily. i try my very best to push chixbeaut out there but hence no luck at that time.

i stand down to the ground and decided to open it again when i finished my degree or some sort. then i get to know Miss Jezmine. she asked me once on why i didn't continue in selling stuff i told her my reason and ever since she keeps on pushing me to be back. though didn't really push but everytime she 'hit' me, it gets me thinking.


then the friendship bracelets trend started to come by when The-Man-Repeller coined the term ArmCandy. I didn't know bout this until AmiSchaheera keeps on instagram-ming her armcandy of the day. i look and think i used to do this too but a little different. i like to wear boho kinda like bangles yg byk tuh~

Jezmine coax me to do this bracelets and eventually i am having fun doing them. I revived my baby from the deep sleep. :)

After 2 weeks of no customer showing up interest, i feel like giving up again. i don't know i just feel so. then i realise this is the exact time i gave up before i cannot give up again! Hence, i keep on braceleting - what i like to called it. well, as i'm writing this i'm having sore fingers for pulling the thread tightly. we must sacrifice if we want to earn something right?

i need to be stronger than before. i have to.

being frugal isn't so bad right~

living life as a student make me live in a strict budget though my parents is okay if i asked anything from them. it just i have this feeling that I need to learn one way or another on living a hard life.

if you are the ones who read my blog you know how hard life is for TESL students. though we don't deal with calculators but we deal grammar to begin with. followed by psychology sociology and my uber favourite, literature. if you think it's a piece of cake well let me enlighten you, IT'S A HUGE PIECE OF CAKE to begin with and it's not even a piece :)

back to the topic..

i don't know why but i'm excited to see good cheap stuff. i'm not sure why. maybe in order to get a piece of luxury i have to 'sacrifice' a little. you see~

usually i get my cheap stuff at at Groupon~ where else right?

Groupon

a few that i met earlier on seems to be afraid to buy these things. why? they afraid of being scam i guess. it's a wild guess. some say that they don't know how to do transaction online. there are many different reason to begin with.

why i choose Groupon and other plethora of group coupon extravaganza?
it's because i don't have that much of money to begin with. i don't have the heart to call my parents and say 'hello mom, i need money to go for my monthly mani-pedi session.' even my mom don't go for mani-pedi. so i save up little by little and when an awesome deal came up i just buy them. hence, i got my monthly mani-pedi. awesome kn?

there are many of these sites and some of them are :

  • groupon.my
  • everyday.my
  • jackcow.com
  • mydeal.com.my
  • webuy.com.my
  • milkadeal.com.my
  • dealmates.com.my
nampak tak berapa byk you can save?

i tell you more about other sites next time~
