Disappointed with Deals.com.sg, its merchant and Aramex

My hubby got me a surprise gift from Deals.com.sg for Valentines Day. It's a bouquet of small teddy bears. What comes as a bigger surprise was that despite the deal being titled with the intention to sell as a Valentines' Day gift, the bouquet did not come on the actual day. I only received it 12 days later. Delivery, and overall experience aside, I love the bouquet. It's very sweet.


My hubby purchased the bouquet online via this deal site, Deals.com.sg and indicated in the remarks to state that the delivery is to deliver to my office address on 14th February. But to his horror, on the actual day, I did not receive any bouquet and he felt sorry to me. He called Deals on 14th February and the answer he got from the phone call was "The delivery will not be taking place on 14th February and the delivery is done in batches and will be send out during the period of February. And despite putting the preferred delivery date, it does not confirm the delivery will be on that day. "

A deal, titled as "Valentines Day Idea", meaning to get customers to buy the item as a Valentines Day gift, isn't it meant to let the recipient receive it on the actual day?

This is the deal published on Deals.com.sg.


My hubby sent an unsatisfactory experience email to Deals.com.sg on the 15th February.

And Deals.com.sg replied the email on the 19th February saying,


Here's the tracking history of the the entire process my gift went through. The customer service said that the courier attempted to send on the 15th February 6:51pm, but indicated that no one was around. Sad to burst their bubble, but I was working overtime on 15th February and only left after 7pm. And there are other colleagues around even after I left. Even so on the 18th February. Both days I was working late.

The tracking history

My hubby replied on the same day, highlighting that we are not asking for refund, but we just need answers and the item to be DELIVERED. It was already 5 days past Valentines Day.

And in the second reply email, Deals.com.sg pushed everything to the delivery company. I understand that it's out of their control after items are dispatched to the delivery company. But still, the entire process was horrible. I only wanted things to be fixed and get my gift that my hubby had bought for me. I gotten my gift 12 days later and Aramex is the delivery company.

This is my first negative post. I do not wish to post negative blogposts, at most, I would just not blog about it. But we were so disappointed with the entire process that I just wish to share. Maybe it's not really anyone's fault, but, I still feel disappointed.

After this incident, and the incident with the Donut Maker deal purchase (View post - to be updated), I do not think that I would want to buy any more things from Deals.com.sg. I am just too disappointed.

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.


Here's the bus schedule.


We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.



The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.


I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.


You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.


I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.


 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.


The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.


There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
