looking at your progress, it makes so much sense to buy from taobao, if the shipping is reasonable.

do share with us your experience with amcon, and their charges by sea per cubic meter. :)

Hihi,

I received it on 27th Feb through Amcon! Havent open it as I need a crowbar to pry open the packaging. Also my place is very dusty and in a mess now so I am not so keen to open too. Thought of asking ID to get his guys to help this Friday. Hehehe. For now it's hidden in the bombshelter..

Ordering with Amcon was easy but after payment was done, there was absolutely no updates from them till they were shipping the items to Singapore. The transit time from China warehouse to their SG warehouse is less than a week. I noticed once items are in SG, follow up is good. If you do not mind customer service but wants fast shipping, can consider them. Take note that they do not do any checking of the packages so omce received must QC all items. I've checked all except for a solid wood tv console which cannot be opened! It's is wrapped with wooden frame.

You can refer to my page 1 post on TB purchases via Amcon -

25 track lights

13m tracks

2 bar stools

a foyer light

a 1.5m tv console

I paid $180+ for the shipping (1m3). Need to check the breakdown and update later. Rmb 550/m3 and S$30 document fees and GST. Each link is RBM 50. To me, it's cheap and I'm confident to buy from TB again.

Must do homework amd check which seller to buy from. Heard from my PRC friend that some sellers are fake!

Weekend is here and we selected the following items for our living and dining area! Got inspired by many other t-bloggers here with the same theme.

Dining Table - a tad too long @ 1.68m but as per our measurement, it will fit just fine! Simply love the solid wood top, it was love at first sight for me. Haha!

Dining chairs - 2pcs as per photo + another 2pcs with armrests (total 4 chairs) - all white, very common design but fits our theme and most of all - comfy & affordable!

PLUS this dining bench!

We shortlisted this sofa....

Alas, due to budget constraint, we selected the following 3-seater instead. Covers are not detachable but we figure we can maintain it with a steam vacuum (keeping fingers crossed!) Love the design toooooo!
