Finally..

Early this year, when i just started in my blogging career (haha!! hey its my second job what!!), i posted one post about one particular book that i've been waiting for 9 months now. I looked for it in our local bookstores like MPH, Kinokuniya and even Boarders, and yes..only the hardcover version is available. If i follow my heart like i did last time, i don't really mind spending RM120 for Julie Garwood's books as it worth with the satisfaction i got from reading her book. But i don't know why i don't want to spend my $$ for her new released book, Shadow Music. It's the first time i can wait for the paperback version which is only due to be released sometime this december or maybe next year.

However, since i start ebaying myself this one month...what do you know..si kaDusMama went to search for Shadow Music in ebay and..yipeeeeeee!!!! I found one which is very..very cheap! I bid the hardcover book for $4.25 and just now, i received a msg informing that i won the book i bid!!! hahhahahahaaa!!! Happynya!!!!!!!!!!

I still haven't make my payment yet as i need to re-confirm the postage fee before i can get my book. The last time i checked from the seller (the seller is in US), the shipment cost will be $11.50 (nah lagi mahal dari the book itself). So...$4.25 + $11.50 = RM55! See...i can save some money for this harcover book kan??? I know its not a brand new book, but based from the other buyers comments, all the books from the seller are in a very good condition and that what's important kan???

bah..i just received another 2 msgs that i've won the items i bid recently!! Haha Die lah like this!! If i don't control myself from now on, i will end-up bidding every items i fancy in ebay. I already made 1 payment for 1 top i won last night, and tonight i need to pay another 2 items (actually its for my daughter). Ayoooo..habis lah like!! All blogging money spent in ebay pulak!!! Mau kasi kuat semangat control lah like this!!!!!

*i think in 3 hours from now, i will win another item i bid yesterday lah!!! hahaha
