I'm an avid shopper, be it online or offline. But now since I have limitations due to my pregnancy (my due date is in 2 weeks time!), I opted for online shopping since it's hassle-free and saves my time and energy. This time around, I decided to take a break from baby items since everything for her is all prepared, I'm just anxiously waiting for this bundle of joy to pop out.
My interest now has changed to home decoration. We've moved to this new house for almost 4 months now right after the renovation progress settled. Since then, I don't really have much time and money to decorate the house as I pleased because I wanted to prepare for the baby first. For a few months, the idea to decorate the interior has to be postponed and we just make do with whatever furniture that we have and bought earlier, until this last month of my pregnancy where I can finally take a breather from baby's stuffs and start focusing on the house instead.
Since we've got some of the decoration items beforehand, I just added on a few to the list to complete whichever that is not. That's when I stumbled upon Home 24, a Malaysian-based furniture and home deco online shopping. Yes, too good to be true but they do sell furniture online now! All you just have to do is browse through their online catalogue for your desired items, add them to your cart, make payment and wait for the items to be delivered at your doorstep. Easy, right?
So I decided to give it a try and bought a few decoration items for the house. I signed up for their newsletter and received an instant RM20 rebate for purchases above RM100 in a single receipt. I opted for cash on delivery instead of online payment to see how it works. Right after I placed the order, their sales rep called up to re-confirm my order and said that the items will be delivered within 7 working days. That's a long wait but nevermind, let's just give it a try then. Mind you, I ordered these items on Wednesday evening at 5pm.
Then on Saturday morning (while I was still sleeping), I received a call from a courier company saying that my items from Home 24 will be delivered in 10 minutes. Wowwwww that was fast! I thought their delivery policy is within 7-14 working days. But mine only took 2 days. Excellent!
My verdict on Home 24? Happy and pleased. They have excellent customer service and delivery is fast than what I expect. Maybe I can try to purchase a few small furniture for the house on my next order, to see how it goes. Hehehehe. But for the time being, I'm happy with my current purchase and will definitely come back to Home 24 and shop again.
