Gmarket Haul #10

Finally managed to find time off work to shop! At my all time favourite online portal :D
Not exactly a huge haul but got me and my family a number of things hehe..

Wanted more casual tops for normal weekends and possibly for work. I ended up buying 3 tshirts, 1 long sleeve tshirt, 1 casual dress and 1 top.. they all turned out more casual than expected due to the material.. so they cant be worn to work! Oh well..  

Seller: 유고걸
Seller: 메이플

 Have been eyeing for a nice pair of denim shorts and managed to find a decent pair without too many scratches and tears.. Apparently have holes in your shorts are the in-thing these days..
I rather not flash my undies thank you very much hahah.. Love this pair of shorts! The colour and cut was perfect!

Seller: 첼로걸
 My family now owns 3 sets of Samsung Galaxy S2! My bro and dad decided to join in the fun after hearing me rave about my awesome phone all the time. They wanted some protective covers so I bought a few.. This seller is awesome.. Not only were the goods lovely, the seller even threw in 4 protective screens as free gifts! :) Happy Happy..

My brother has been hunting high and low for this lunatik ipod nano watch strap for ages at cheaper rate compared to the apple store.. Sure enough Gmarket offers the strap at half the price.. How fantastic is that!

Seller: Lunatik st

My brother wanted a decent backpack.. During our trip to Korea, we couldnt seem to find any cheap deals.. Buying online from Gmarket is apparently still cheaper than a brick and mortar store in Korea.. Got him 2 bags since they were on sale hehe.. The quality turned out pretty decent and my bro was happy with the buys..

Seller: 에이샵A
 Oh!! Thats the lunatik ipod nano watch strap my bro is wearing.. pretty cool eh!!

Couldnt resist not buying some bags for myself too hahah.. Decided upon a clutch and a shoulder carry on.. Oddly when i was browsing through the pictures before buying, I thought the brown shoulder bag was big and the clutch small.. I had a shock when I opened my package.. they were both around the same size! O_O The clutch turned out much bigger and the shoulder bag much smaller than expected! Hahaha! I still like both buys though.. Love the design! Same seller for both the backpacks and the bags by the way..

Seller: 에이샵A
Always like trying new shampoo.. hoping one day I would find one I really like.. Have always been fascinated by the luscious hair that Koreans have hahah so I somehow have the concept that its probably the shampoo they use.. Previously i bought Amore Pacific's Ryeo shampoo! Still using it.. The smell is kinda herb like so not exactly the best smell you would like in a shampoo.. This time round I decided on Kerasys Salon Care! Bought the rinse plus the shampoo set.. It smells so floral and yummy! cant wait to try!

Seller: 애경

 Thats all for Haul#10!! :)

Gmarket Haul #9

Its been some time since I last had a Gmarket haul since it was the winter season and I dont exactly need any winter stuff in sunny Singapore! But spring is here and so...


I finally got a new handphone - Samsung Galaxy S2! Have been pondering, researching and seeking opinions on whether i should do a switch from my iphone to the an Android phone. I heard horror stories of people having a tough time getting accustom to something other than the iphone. I am so glad I followed my instincts and couldnt be happier with my new gadget. I must admit the first day was frustrating but once I got used to it the freedom and customization available on my S2 was worth it! And so this haul I was busy shopping for items for my new phone :D


I got 2 covers - one black and one green. And 2 coloured screen protectors - green and blue! i got myself a stylus too! The seller was pretty generous with the free gifts! I got a total of 4 free transparent screen protectors and a cute hello kitty dust plug..

My mum wanted a bag of decent quality for casual purposes and selected one from the list to test buy  if korean goods are indeed much better for the price paid. And sure enough the bag came in decent shape and she was pleased!


I have been looking at the cute notebooks on Gmarket for the longest time and decided to get some. The designs are so lovely and I ended up buying a total of 8 notebooks! They are pretty thin and I am sure I would have some use for them..


The designs are so pretty isnt it! What I found amusing were the words on the cover page.. There were many spelling errors and the quotes made little sense to me hahah!

And so my quest to learn korean begins here! In an attempt to ease the pain whenever I shop on Gmarket and probably allow me to understand Korean dramas without subtitles... I bought 2 language guide books (Part 1 & 2) - "Active Korean" which had pretty good reviews. Have not exactly got down to work but its a start!


What I really like about "Active Korean" would be tons of colourful pictures used to supplement the text. It makes learning so much easier. Furthermore it comes with an audio CD to assist with pronunciation of the words. Sometimes using phonetics in learning isnt enough since every language has its own unique way of pronouncing the alphabets. Hope to find some time to get down to learning soon ;)

Finally, whats shopping at Gmarket without buying any clothes! I always feel I am running out of clothing to wear for work.. 

So i got myself 2 tops that would be simple enough to match with any bottoms..


a work skirt in lime green from Nemo again! Very difficult to match but loving the pleat detail...


a simple dress on sale.. very fitting and the material is thick! Would be even lovelier if I had a flat tummy *sob* work + junk food has finally taken a tow on the bulge monster...


Thats all for my 9th spree! Loving my items... This time round the package was much heavier due to the books so shipping was more expensive than usual..
