That Offending Message from "- 7 Eleven"

So this offending message has been making its rounds on Whatsapp since yesterday. I don't know which bothers me more. The fact that scammers can do this !@#$ so freely, or that people find this !@#$ believable. And by this I mean: 

I mean, I'm sure you can spot hundreds of imperfect grammar/sentence structures on my blog. But for something supposedly official? What is 'Take 1 minute survey"? What kind of company is "-7 Eleven"? And really, (1 of the 50 available)? Why does the background colour clash with the logo's border? 

The same goes for FREE Rolls Royce campaigns. Or some other free whatever-it-was from a 6000-strong "Qatar. Airline" fanpage. Or some dude/girl who apparently has 10,000 brand new iPhones to GIVE away.
Anyway that's not the point. I'm so SICK of malware, viruses, scams, people conning the elderly of their savings. Why do they have to do things like that? Okay okay. Must be something to do with money lah. Then there's the argument of "you were never poor, you'd never understand why people resort to such means to get more money".

UGH ROT SCAMMERS ROT. Then again, there are to many people I wish would rot. Like irresponsible drivers who think they're oh-so-cool-over-alcohol-limit-but-still-garang-can-drive-bit-end-up-killing-people. Sex offenders. Bigots. Victim-blamers. And I think I've ever dedicated an entire blog post to this topic.

My New Fitness Craze

Hello! I'm on another of my I NEED TO GET FITTER phase (and please let it last long this time). :D

In case you didn't know, my workplace is within walkable distance from my home now! Well, sorta, if you think 2 km's okay. Haha. So my colleagued introduce this app she uses and it's so fun! Okay I don't think it's 100% accurate because it the numbers did jump when I left them alone on my table, but hey, 95% is awesome too! Sure beats spending $$$ on a FitBit or some other fancy sports equipment! 

For some reason, I find the history tab really exciting - it's like, I can't wait to collect more activities! And perhaps see my time go down! :D 

Of course, there's another incentive for this, and it's.. I get to save 80 cents every time I walk home from my workplace! Hey, 80 cents is a lot, if you do the math. Let's say there are 20 weekdays a week -- that'll be $16. Factor in rainy evenings and those I meet my friends for dinner, I'd save at least $10-$12 a month! That's at least $120 a year - and it's a lot to me.

WOOHOO next goal: 20 minutes! :)

Oh the little things you can do to motivate yourself to keep fit and stay healthy!

I've been doing some research on some novelty fitness classes like hydro rider and some biking classes but well. Those can wait - let me find more FOC ways to keep myself motivated first. :P

Oh, the thought of having non-wobbly-bobbly (I mean toned lah) thighs for the first time in my life.

Zalora: Vouchers is the Magic Word

What comes to mind when you see or hear the word “voucher”? That's right! Discounts, discounts, discounts. And who doesn't love savings shopping coupons and vouchers? I know I do. :P

There's always some voucher code where Zalora is concerned. Haha. And don't you think the best thing about buying something is when you get to buy something at a reduced price? That feeling of satisfaction never gets old. HAHA.

Sometimes, I wait for 20% discounts to come by – but the funny thing about waiting is, when you're waiting for something, it just WON'T happen. And when it does.. There isn't anything you want to buy. Or you already bought it at the regular price. * hmph *

Then again, fret not. Here's how you can get a 10% discount anytime before 16 May 2015!

From now till May 2016, get to enjoy the perks of Zalora's special discounts as you shop for the latest fashion, right in the comfort of home. And here's an incentive to shop on the go – you get to use a voucher code for a 10% discount when you use Zalora's mobile app to shop! No more boring looooong train rides. :P

All you need to do is to key in the voucher code during checkout, and you're all set! Zalora is known for their fuss-free browsing and shopping experience, plus you don't have to squeeze with the weekend (especially during the Great Single Season!) crowd. With discounts, free delivery above $40, a 30-day free return policy and cash on delivery, what more could you ask for? Whip out that coupon voucher and start shopping! :D
