Hi Shopping Gurus, any recommended online shopping websites (besides TB, Amazon, Qoo10 etc.) that you can recommend to buy bedsheets, quilt covers, pillow cases, etc.? A bit hesitant to shop @ Amazon due to different mattress sizes between US and Singapore? Pai seh ... actually prefer to buy online (unless bo bian) than go physical store front. TIA!

uhhh, for bedsheets etc, cos it's next to my skin, i prefer to go and touch and feel so i buy these at the store.... :sport-smiley-018:

rough rule of thumb:

- each item must be <20 pounds in weight

- amazon global eligible i.e. sold by amazon, not a 3rd party seller

- total order >usd125

- check for restrictions here and elsewhere on the amazon site:

during checkout, if for some reason, your order doesn't qualify for free shipping, ask an amazon cso to verify for you...

Ong did you get the switches from taobao? Any good? Time for me to buy switches now...after the long delay...finally electrician dropped by the home

Nope, I didn't, too crumble some, on the safe side, rather buy locally approved switches if keen to change.

wow very nice.

the direct shipping costs $41?

Cos the item is already almost 100 sgd?

How loud is the ticking ?

finally, i got my clock ! :wub:

Taobao store

I arranged for the seller to ship direct without going through a freight forwarder, about SGD41 in total, COD...well-wrapped by the seller and shipper...

The clock is encased by plastic foam, custom cut to its shape...and the cutout for the needles to prevent damage..

close up of the wood grain...the mechanism is not very noisy although it's not one of those continuous movement type...

all in all, beautiful clock - a bit expensive including the shipping fee but definitely a one of a kind type... :sport-smiley-004:

Ya as long as not ikea clock or alarm clock those sound can liao.

I'm thinking of getting the circle with the 12 grooves ..

Not worried 3M hook won't give way? I'm always worried that after 1-2 yrs the adhesive wear off.

Tonight I go home n listen again n c if I can find something similar to benchmark to...:lol: btw,point to note,their production time is long cos it's made to order n handcrafted so it took him about 20+ days to ship out to me...the second hand was slightly bent towards surface of the clock,despite all the careful packing...I just carefully adjusted it myself n it's fine...

Ya, I also scared of it falling off n m tending to getting a hole drilled...:)
