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..
