Merry Christmas! :)

By Sha-Lene (a.k.a Your Shopping Kaki)

First things first, I'm so sorry for going quiet on you - my wonderful readers - for the past few months! :( No amount of explanation can quite excuse that "Oh my gosh, I finally finished my undergraduate degree, I wanna waste my life for half a year figure out what I wanna do for the rest of my life" unannounced hiatus, but I just wanted to pop in and apologise and let you guys know... I'll be back someday soon! :)

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank my team of Guest Bloggers who helped keep YSK alive while I was busy with my final year in university - and I look forward to having them on board again when YSK is revived! :) Much loves to Cynthia, Wei Ni, Mechell, Anna, Nathalee, Michelle and other friends who contribute to this blog. :D

I still have so many ambitions for this blog, and things I want to share with you guys to enjoy in the online shopping community ... my work is not yet done! :) We encourage you to subscribe to our mailing list so you'll be updated via e-mail when ever there's a new blog post up. To subscribe, scroll down to the very bottom of this webpage and just type in your e-mail address! :D

Don't forget to make full use of our categories of blogshops available on the right sidebar! :) So fun to see what yummy new updates there are, even if I'm only back every now and then! Take advantage of those Year End Sales for New Year parties, ya! ;) And it's never too early to start shopping for CNY!

Right now, I'm getting my life back on track - growing up, I should say! - and busy with looking for a job and preparing for post-graduate studies abroad. I miss the online shopping world terribly, but I don't want to bite more than I can chew right now - since the mind, when idle for so long, is rusty; as is my lack-of-updated-self-on-latest-fashion-trends - so I just wanted to say hello, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in advance! :)

Here's to greeting the new year with a sunny smile! :D

While I'm back, some goodies I couldn't resist reviewing, haha!

From Sista Closette RM40
Sometimes it's just fun to wear an unexpected cheongsam top to college - even if it's not CNY!
Embrace thy heritage or the multiculturalist in you, I say! 
Also a poppin' red top with a blazer or jacket for a day at the office :)
Can be accessorized with a big ol' brooch for that 1950's Hong Kong feel!

 From glossyaddiction RM73
After all this time away, I'd have thought my tastebuds would've taken a big change -
but nope, I'm still hopelessly in love with this sparrow bag inspired by the Marc Jacobs design!
Also loving the fact that this is exclusive to this online store, since they commissioned the design. :D

From Deeper Than Fashion (price N/A)
Did you hear me squeal? I swear it was a loud one!
Handmade tribal bib necklace - open to custom orders - what a delight!
Also spotted a DIY tutorial on candy-cane earrings in this craft-lovin' blogshop.
I love how some things never change - I still love this store, looks like she's gotten more creative! :)

From Peep Boutique RM59 | RM49
Golly gee wheez, have you seen anything effortless sexier?
One for those posh li'l parties - or just blowing people's minds at dinner -
and another for just casual hanging out at the mall, brunch with the boyfriend, you name it!
Not quite a style for the timid and modest, but sometimes it's wildly fun to step out of your shell -
if you got it - the confidence, not the figure - flaunt it! ;) 

 Happy Shopping!
Your Shopping Kaki :)

hi, i need an opinion about customer demanding refund due to colours slightly different from pictures. i have emailed you and realllyyyy appreciate if you can give some opinion :) tq

Hi there! :)

Saw your comment on my blog, so I looked for your email here. :D Hmm I'd say your terms & conditions are understandable, and here are 2 choices you have:
1) Stick to your T&C and offer an apology. Issue a discount code for her next purchase.
2) Or you can think about the possibility of this customer being a returning customer, and issue her a refund. Perhaps she'll be so happy with how you handled the situation and kept the customer happy, that she'll tell her friends about your store and come back to buy from you again too!

I understand a colour difference with purples is really hard to capture on camera, but I would strongly recommend #2 if you are hoping for a returning customer. :) The cost of losing one sale is a short-term loss, but it can turn into long-term profit when your reputation in excellent customer service spreads!

Good luck and feel free to leave a comment on how this goes,
Sha-Lene :)

Despite the many advantages of online shopping there are also problems which may occur with this type of shopping that is why its always better to update our knowledge about the latest news and events.
