Time Sale With Gmarket or Qoo10 Singapore – iPad 2 Smart Cover

Qoo10 Singapore Time Sale and Promotions

Hi Friends,

Here’s my article on the long awaited Second Online Purchase from Qoo10 Singapore, the New Gmarket.

It is a replacement for my Apple® iPad2®‘s cover that was screaming for a new set of clothing for the longest time! (sorry iPad2, it looks like your old set of clothing have been through World War II, hope your new clothing is worth waiting for)

 
Here’s my poor Miss iPad2 with her old set of World War II clothings:

My Old iPad2 Smart Cover

This post is delayed mainly because I’m a cheapskate and wanted to save some bucks on NOT choosing Express Delivery Service.

(Maybe not really a cheapskate, because the discounted price for this iPad Cover is so low that it seems like the Express Shipping fees cost more than the item itself!!)

Its not like the old cover is going to melt and disintegrate into thin air anytime soon, and if I really wanted one immediately, I would go pick one up from some shops. The last I checked, something similar would cost about S$30++

(yes, even if I had opted for Express Delivery service, getting this online from Qoo10 Singapore is still cheaper!)

I wanted to write about my Second Qoo10 Singapore Online Purchase and show you guys (who have never shopped online before), how easy it is, to make your purchase from Qoo10 Singapore’s website. But this is a hard to be missed deal and I found it while I was outside, so I had to make my purchase immediately, thus this is another purchase featuring the Qoo10 Singapore Online Shopping Mobile App on my iPhone® 4.

SUPERMAN MOVIE MUSIC BEGINS

Presenting To You, In A Movie / TV Script Format, My Second Purchase With Qoo10 (Gmarket) Singapore, Introducing Qoo10 Singapore Time Sale And Potential Oscar Award Winner for Young (not so young..) Actress Awards, The iPad 2 ..

 

(SUPERMAN MUSIC HALTS)

wait.. the iPad 2 is supposedly the audience, not the Actress, and iPhone 4 was there instead, iPhone 4 is not a prop in this show because he plays an important role.. oh well, nevermind .. starring ME then..

Oh wait again (!!), here’s the explanation of a few jargons used in this script:

PG = Parental guidance is recommended for young viewers. Please consult your parents if you are less than 5 years old and want to buy something online. PG content may air at any time on digital-only channels, otherwise, it may only be broadcast between 8:30 am and 4:00 pm and between 7:00 pm and 6:00 am on weekdays, and between 10:00 am and 6:00 am on weekends.

EXT = Exterior scene/shot (ie. outdoors)

INT = Interior scene (ie. not outdoors)

MUSIC STINGER / STING = Short Musical Phrase, primarily used in Broadcasting and Films as a form of Punctuation

SUPER / SUBTITLES = Text you see, superimposed on the screen, to indicate time, location, messages, or languages that is foreign to majority of the viewers


 
OK, Here Goes :

SUPERMAN MUSIC Continues

SCENE 1

EXT. ON A BUS SOMEWHERE IN SINGAPORE – NIGHT

(SUPER FADES IN: TIME ~ 2033hrs)

As ME was checking out the QOO10 GMARKET SINGAPORE ONLINE SHOPPING APP on my iPHONE4 while on a BUS to SOMEWHERE, A TIME SALE PROMOTION caught ME’s attention.

(INSERT MUSIC : BEETHOVEN’s SYMPHONY NO.5 As STINGER)

(Time Sale Events on Qoo10 Singapore usually only lasts for 3 hours)
 

ME
(Gasps to self)
Oh My! Miss iPAD2 have been bugging me for the longest time,
for a new set of clothings.
She’ll bug me for the rest of my life if I miss this DEAL

ME looks at the WATCH and realized there is not much time left to go HOME to make the PURCHASE on his DESKTOP COMPUTER, so ME clicks on the item and selected the “BLACK 360° Rotating Magnetic Leather Case Smart Cover With Swivel Stand For iPad 2“, but was stuck at the Shipping section.

 

ME
(Thinking to self)
Should I opt for Express Shipping for an additional S$15?
That would cost more than the item itself!

(SUPER FADES IN: TIME ~ 2044hrs)

FINALLY, after 10 minutes (!!), ME decides to go for the Normal Shipping (S$1.50), because ME is in no hurry to receive the new iPAD2 Smart Cover, and Miss iPAD2 should be used to the old set of clothings by now, so it makes no difference to her..

So, ME Adds the item to his ONLINE SHOPPING CART.

But before clicking the “Place Order” button to confirm the purchase, and being a real KiaSu Singaporean (afraid to lose out), ME decides to compare the (already low) price with all the Qoo10 Discount Coupons and Options, ALTHOUGH THERE IS NOT MUCH TIME LEFT BEFORE TIME SALE EVENT ENDS (16 minutes left!!)

NOTE:
You can use your own Discount Coupons in your account by clicking on the “My Coupon” Button – as shown at Frame #11 above

So, ME adds another similar item to the Shopping Cart, and then go through his Discount Coupons to compare the price.

NOTE:
You can add as many items to your Shopping Cart all you want, and you only make your payment at the Check Out Counter by clicking on the “Place Order” Button

ME finally decides to purchase it without using his own Discount Coupons because the Time Sale Discount already deducts S$1.40, and it is still the cheapest (… by 40 cents)

NOTE:
If You are doing this similar price comparison on your purchase, remember to remove the duplicated items that you do not need, before you Place your Order – You can simply “tick” the items that you want to remove, and click on the “Delete” button at the bottom

(SUPER FADES IN: 2 DAYS LATER..)

ME goes to his mailbox to check for 360° Rotating Magnetic Leather Case Smart Cover for iPAD2 he ordered.

ME
(Thinking to himself)
Alamak! Nothing!

Of course it is not there yet! The seller is shipping it from China, and because ME did not opt for Express Delivery Service, the item will usually take 7 to 15 working days, as indicated by The Seller!

 

SCENE 3

EXT. ME’S MAILBOX BELOW HIS APARTMENT – DAY

(SUPER FADES IN: ANOTHER 3 DAYS LATER..)

ME goes to his mailbox again, to check for 360° Rotating Magnetic Leather Case Smart Cover for iPAD2 he ordered.

Alamak! Still Nothing!

Of course it is not there yet! It’s not even a week yet!

 

SCENE 4

EXT. ME’S MAILBOX BELOW HIS APARTMENT – DAY

(SUPER FADES IN: ANOTHER 3 DAYS LATER..)

ME goes to his mailbox again, to check for 360° Rotating Magnetic Leather Case Smart Cover for iPAD2 he ordered.

ME
(Thinking to himself)
Alamak! Again, Nothing!

NOTE:
By the way, in case you guys did not know, usually items of a certain size such as this one, WILL NOT be sent directly to your Mailbox, but it will be delivered by THE COURIER MAN! STUPID AND IGNORANT ME!!

 

SCENE 5

EXT. ME INSIDE HIS APARTMENT – EVENING

(SUPER FADES IN: ON THE 11TH DAY..)

ME just got off work, and he found a note on the floor as he enters his APARTMENT

ME and Miss iPAD 2 (And THE DOG)
(Exclaims!)
NO !!!!!

(INSERT MUSIC : BEETHOVEN’s SYMPHONY NO.5 As STINGER)

The COURIER MAN came and tried to deliver the parcel in the afternoon, but there was no one at home !!

ME
(Thinking to self)
Ok, just 1 More day. Tomorrow at 0800hrs,
I will go to the POST OFFICE to collect the parcel!

NOTE:
By the way, most Post Office Opens at 0830hrs, NOT 0800hrs, And Collection Time is from 0930hrs!

CAMERA FADES TO BLACK

 
SCENE 6

INT. ME AT POST OFFICE – DAY

(SUPER: DAY 12 – At The Post Office)

Being Kiasu, ME runs to the Post Office as fast as he could, and was the first one in the queue and collected THE PARCEL! (ME took the day off from work specially for this!)

 

SCENE 7

INT. ME AT HOME – DAY

And Here, Finally!! Miss iPad2 in all her glory, wearing the brand new and shiny Black 360° Rotating Magnetic Leather Case Smart Cover (ok, it is not shiny, it is an added Photo Effect)

Ok guys, sorry for this long story, but it is really a True Life Account, and I thought I want to make it more dramatic with this Movie / Television script idea.

The Moral Of The Story is:

The Moral Of The Story

If you know the item you’ve purchased online is coming from overseas, and IF you want it delivered FAST, pay the extra for Express Delivery Service!

And if you know that the item is going to be delivered by THE COURIER MAN, try to indicate in the Remarks or Comments, to request for Mr COURIER MAN to call you before making the delivery. It will help ease some anticipation and also save you a day (or two!)

 

And usually at the end of each Film or Television Programme, there’s this Roller End Credits or Closing Credits, where people either rush out of the cinema, or switches channel.

We should really make an effort to sit through the End Credits. Efforts are put in by each and every one involved in creating the show, and we should show our little appreciation by sitting through it :)

Time Sale With Gmarket or Qoo10 Singapore – iPad 2 Smart Cover — 7 Comments

  1. Pingback: Online Shopping Experience with Gmarket Singapore

  2. I am really delighted to glance at this webpage posts which
    includes plenty of useful data, thanks for providing these kinds of information.

  3. Im not expecting a great deal just after the iPhone 4S debacle.

    I mean what accurately is likely to change that anyone
    will notice. Slightly faster, slightly better resolution, slightly better
    camera.
