I'm ebay-ing in the middle of the night!

The clock shows that it's 3.10am right now and still, I'm still not off to sleep yet. The reason for me to stay up very...very late is because I'm looking for a nice and affordable HellBoy figurine for son as a christmas present. Previously, son requested the big and bulky Incredible Hulk toy as a christmas present this year. But as months goes by, I noticed he doesn't really fancy Mr.Hulk anymore. He has been spending most of his time, drawing and writing hellboy name everywhere in our house. Well, this including my room's wall where son had nicely 'decorated' my room's wall with HellBoy name on it!!! *Sigh*

See!!!! My room's wall not spared by son!!

But, thats not I want to tell you about actually. It's about my ebay experience. I just started spending my time in ebay like 1 1/2 months ago and I can tell you, I'm currently hooked up with it. Hehe!! Each day, I will spend at least 1 hour of my time searching for a cheap and nice things like Blouses, Sunglasses, Accessories, HandBag and sometimes, I even look for a fancy shoes too. So far, I had won few items already and if only hubby knew about it, I'm sure Hubby will nag me all day long telling me to save my money for a better use. Can you imagine, I bought 2 nice tops from ebay, and until now..I still haven't wear it!!!! Hehe

What I like about ebay is, I can find thousands of items I'm looking for with a cheaper price and lots of variaties. But, what I dread about the most is about paying the items I wanted to buy. No..no..don't get me wrong. It's not I don't want to pay the things I'm buying, but it's about the security of transaction made. I always wonder, What if I already paid the items I want and the seller failed to send me the thing I bought? Just few days ago, I paid for this nice chiffon dress from ebay and still waiting for its arrival. (Hope it will arrive in my hand in this few days)

Well, actually other than ebay, I do shop online for other thing from other merchant as well. But some of it, I doubt about its security. That's why I'm going to download buySAFE application from buySAFE Shopping Advisor for a safer and secure transactions in the future. In case you don't know, Shopping Advisor will display security rating on merchants and sellers available in Yahoo, MSN, Googles and yes...in ebay too. From now on, I will at least know which merchants I can trust before I click their link and won't be duped into doing a transaction which bound to be fraud.

I know..I know..some of you might be sceptical when it come to shop online. But trust me, it is not that bad. Last time, I was that cynical to the bone about shopping online thinking I might get cheated by all the sellers out there. But so far, I haven't experience any problem yet. Hehe So why not give a try to shop online for a cheaper things. Who knows you might get hook up to online shopping like me too????

Wah! Hellboy oh. hehehe... abis la kalau dinding sa yg kana conteng, sa tambah lagi tu lukis Hellboy btul-btul..

It is fun shopping on ebay, because the stuff there is not the 'everyday items' kan?

So far sa banyak beli samurai swords, nun chakus etc + electronic stuff. Tu baru la kasi abis duit.

Nanti mo try beli baju-baju la pula. Hehe
