Isn't my title dramatic or what? hahaha! Just a heads up to my dear readers from the Philippines! (who like shopping on eBay)


 On Jan. 5, 2010 I ordered 2 boxes of Kao's Prettia Bubble Hair Dye in Glossy Brown through a reputable eBay seller, i paid through Paypal and got a confirmation, etc. but didn't get an email regarding shipping details for 6 days, then exactly one week after paying, I got word from AlphabeautyUK that they do not ship to the Philippines because of bad experience. What? After making me wait for a week, thats what you tell me now? How sad! I replied to them by saying that that shipping information should be up on their eBay page to avoid matters like this. I don't know if they fixed it already, i haven't checked (bitter melon! hehehe) Okay, I refuse to make this post a rant so let me just say that I hope they fix whatever issues they have with the Philippine Post Office because i do think that they have good prices and they offer a wide assortment of goodies for beautyholics like me! ^_^

I just feel I need to share this information to avoid future disappointment to my fellow beautyholics/online shopaholics who are Philippine residents. I repeat, eBay seller ALPHABEAUTYUK DOES NOT SHIP TO THE PHILIPPINES. :)

ps. Yes, i got a refund! and I'm still getting a Prettia Bubble Hair Dye in the mail albeit a different shade and just one box, its still better than nothing. Thank goodness for ichibankao! (i ordered this haul prior to my cancelled eBay transaction) ^.^

'til my next post dah-lins!

still a happy camper,

  2. Aw that sucks! I totally love buying from that ebay seller!
