RECEIVED!> Free Sample: Stay Pretty!> Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion

It's here! Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion (0.5oz) has reached, took about a month but hey Mdm Cheapo says "Free - Cannot complain ah". I really really like Cetaphil now. This is their second sampling exercise that I have gotten stuff from them. Good Job! This is still available, so hurry! 

Best Deal: Maternity Wear from Mummy's Secret!

What is the "down-est" side of being pregnant? To Mdm Cheapo: it's having NOTHING to wear. Everything piece of my clothing cannot be worn. I had to survive on Ah Lau's T-shirts at home and his largest rubberband shorts. yes, LARGEST!  *Drowned in Gloom* To make matters worse, maternity wear is so so so expensive. I went to a shop at Harboufront, tried a dress, flipped the price tag - $79.99. I rolled my eyes and handed the dress back to the sales lady. HUH?! $79.99 how to buy and wear for less than 6 mths?
But I looked back to my wardrobe it was more depressing only 3 staple outfits for the entire week. SO un-glam. Already feel un-glam still need to look un-glam. Sianz. I went to consult my best friend "google" and I found this place "Mummy's Secret" for Maternity wear.  Comparing prices, exact same dresses I found from qoo10, this was 10-20% cheaper. The super up-side was you can TRY! So i went to puppy eye ah lau, eh.... can bring me to a place this sat? plzzzz... Of cos he said yes! no choice ma~ 2 voices asking.
You can make appointment at:
Mobile: +65 9847 7337 (Claire) advisable / +65 8188 9663 (Nick)
or Email: Opening hours are: Sat 8-5pm, Sun 8-12pm. 
From experience, email gets faster response. 
So we made out trip to 10 Admiralty Street, #01-68 (Unit OPPOSITE #01-82) 
Northlink Building, Singapore 757695
This is NOT easy to find. The showroom is on the 2nd floor, ground floor looks like a some scrap yard... We nearly thought we were lost. Please ask the shop folks around to avoid heading the wrong direction. 
On the 2nd floor all the clothes were on 4 racks. There're 2 dressing rooms so you really need to book appointment so that you do not end up with too many people and wait too long to try the clothes. 
Claire the lady boss is very young and very friendly! So, I picked and picked and tried and tried while ah lau and mummy waited. 
They were not slacking either, they checked out the baby clothes and products there. 
In the end, my haul included: 
For me: 
6 dresses, 2 pairs of pants, 1 pair of shorts (heeheee, more than I planned, so HaPPy)
For baby: 
1 set of new born clothes (on promotion 2 for 9.99), a set of 5 carter's body suit, 2 pairs of baby socks and a FREE baby cry detector (worth 49.99 on the website). 
Total damages $240+. Do note that things are fixed price. The free cry detector is given when purchases are above $168. 

Then out of curiosity, I went to google all the baby stuff. Baby socks were for 3.99 each (online $5+), I love MaMa/Papa body suits 2 for 9.99 (online $8.90 each), Carter's Romper 15.99 (online $20).  Ok, the cry detector you can get it for $13+ on qoo10, its better to get it as a free gift than buy. 
Dresses were at least 10% cheaper than online sources! And you get to try! No guesswork if it will fit nice or look nice.
All in all, saved about 30% , $70. (comparing online prices). Compared to retail, easily more than 50% cheaper. Definitely worth the petrol cost. This is THE place for cheap, affordable maternity wear. Not only money is SAVED, Mdm Cheapo can look "Glam-er" now. 
To All the father-to-bes reading this, bring wifey there NOW! Remember - A happy wife is a happy life. More so for the Mother of YOUR child. Happy shopping Mummies! 

Free Sample: Nivea Samples!

Nivea is giving away samples Again! 
On a serious note, i think we should support all brands that regularly give free samples. Then the wonderful sampling can continue ForEver!

RECEIVED! Free: Star Wars Figure!

I hope you saw my post at 4pm! I was at Orchard (which is very very rare) being a preggy in crowded places. Big Turn Off!
Today was a special day, we were celebrating BFF's hatch day so braving crowds was worth it. 
To make it LAGI worth it we decided to go jalan jalan along busy Orchard to check out the latest fashion trends. To our pleasant surprise there were people giving away free star wars figurines for every "Like" on Hasbro.  They had 3 guys in costumes posing with the crowd, Star wars characters I think... Only recognized a storm trooper. Ah lau was so excited, like a little boy! Immediately took his phone, "Like" Hasbro and got his toy! 
When we walked past the same spot at 6 pm, no more toys left so I hope you got yours! 
Here's what we got: 

Hasbro Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back 3.75 Vintage Action Figure - Boba Fett - $9.95 (price on ebay)

Now I "LIKE" going to Orchard. New high point of the week! So luckY!
Had good meal with BFFs, had fun & got free toys! (Got some nice clothes too!) HaPpY MdM CheaPo today!

Best Deal: Clout Shoppe~

Now, what do we do with all the money we save? Spend on good food - Yes! 
And... spend on the occasional indulgence - Branded goods. Once a while to pamper yourself is totally justifiable. 
Discovered this sire Clout Shoppe, by Singpost. Singpost one, sure is the real stuff. That's why i have always avoided shopping for branded stuff online, also don't know real/fake. This seems so much more assuring. 
They even offer installment options, less of a heartburn. 
And to make it even better, there are credit card promotions available. Best Deal is the Stand Chart Sing Post Card, total 10% rebate.  Happy Shopping!
