Gain City Expo Purchases

Recommended Posts

come this fri, 8 July'11 the Deliveries, i may then be able to relate my purchases fm last wkends' expo sales 1-3 July'11.

my concern is the delivery part, since its kinda 'heng' or 'sway' for the 'right' delivery fellows to come 'present' our purchases! :sport-smiley-018:

now me is the chin-chye type...or at least being an uncle

helps with this kinda attitude in that i can't be too bothered with small hiccups. BUT should all small issues merged up or rather cropped up to become Big ones, there my long fuse would tripped & execute BIG Blow! so far fm my reno to my sourcings (& thereby purchases) of lightings, furnishings, accessories, etcssss....smooth! maybe Heaven thinketh i suffered enough since young & taketh pity on me by getting most operations gg but....hey, gain city's items

yet to come so me cannot so ya-ya yet lor :P

:seeya:

glad that all stuffs came on fine! 2 delivery guys came, one singaporean 'Leader' while the other a chinese national.

friendly & efficient! takes gd + special care esp when carrying Heavy washer & fridge pass my living room into the service yard and kitchen respectively.

purchased:

1) 40" lcd toshiba

Leader Daniel was very professional & customer-orientated. he IS very good in his job (ie. mounting the tv up onto the wall) & does numerous checks with me patiently, to ensure the positioning is to my best viewing angle before fixing up the heavy item. offers good suggestion & after mounting is done, i thought he did Superbly Well - straight straight, centralised & all...GREAT JOB!!! :good::good::good:

seldom glued to tv but if i watch, a big screen of min 40" is desired though was hoping more for a 46" :dribble: nvm, next round lor

2) phillips soundbar (old version model 6xxx something kinda)

yup, knew ain't in the 'right era' but we agreed to get a 'home theatre system' just to play barney & spongebox for the kids & for me - FM stereo can liao lor :D

so criteria is to be able to play dvd, vcd & FM, not expensive & able to accompany our old-fashioned LCD tv :P

oh one more thing...the sub-woofer is like a b-l-o-o-d-y big black pail for slaughtering chickens or else it does resemble some kinda of donation box :bleah:

3) LG fridge CLC402

seems bit too small when hibernate into the 'cave' amongst my kitchen cabinet. can accomodate a bike i think :notti:

but home affairs minister wife said ok so :rolleyes: can la

4) LG washer + dryer 7kg/4kg

intended to get samsung wd8804cja but the stubborn price jus doesn't drop! in the end saw this at 799 so jus on la :sport-smiley-018: (good or not...hopefully dun see me post bout this washer again or it's likely to be no good)

5) 2 bronze standing fan

6) 1 panasonic rice cooker

7) 1 toyomi electric (flask) kettle

8) tefal iron - 'out of stock'

GC called a day prior to delivery that stock boh liao. couldn't give explanation as to our ques: why was there one mountain load of stock at expo sales but comes to delivery, no more? ... but in the end we jus smile & is appreciative to this customer service lady that she is responsible & bold enough to inform us early :thumbs up:

total damages -2.88k round off

OMG!! I love shopping!!!! And spending money!!! Bet you had a great time hahahahaha :yamseng:

hahaha...! spending on necessaries, ok la...once in a 'purple' moon :rolleyes:

i actually chanced upon Courts' sales back in Jurong Point few weeks (late may or june week one) back selling @ the following unbelievable prices:

1) samsung wd8804 cja washer+dryer $799

2) Lg fridge 402clc $499

thought of getting em during then but thought i'll have em when nearer to date of reno completion.

gd that GC sales came by & though item '2' more ex than during that Courts' sales, still ok la (esp since i heard fm relatives some 'rumours' bout their 'on sales' items) :sport-smiley-018:

hi, im using this LG washer dryer combi. Bought at Mega Novena Branch. About the same price u got back in Jan. So far so good... no problems so far. The dryer can only take half load. I guess the higher the load intake the more electricity it will use also. Samsung one was slightly more expensive cos they have freebies so cant reduce price. I think Mega offers all year low price for fridge and washer.

Hi lemontee!

Sori for d late response, been v occupied w those shiftings :)

Cut ribbon & started my LG washer dryer 4 days back...it's fine!

Works pretty well as my previous sumsung brand BUT only much more quieter, less vigorous while spin-drying or tumble drying & the poly musical tone much pleasing to my ears!

Then again it's brand new & majority of brand new items works well! However if this can surpass the 3rd year, I think my $799 buy for this v worthy liao :)
