Check Your Receipt When Shopping At Tesco (Malaysia)

We like to get our groceries from Tesco because it's slightly cheaper (sometimes) and more varieties (Tesco's own brand) compared to other hypermarts like Giant or even Carrefour. But, I'm very unhappy with the way they work (or lack of it?). I bought some sanitary pads at the offer price of RM16.99 for two packs. This is like 3 or 4 bucks cheaper than the 'normal' price. The price was stated at the shelf. When the cashier scanned the packs, it came out as RM17.99. I thought, "Hmmm... my eyes bluffed me, I guess."

As I was walking away and looking through the receipt again, mom asked, "What's the matter?" I told her about it and she asked me to go check the price at the shelf 'cos she said it happened to her and dad before at another Tesco branch. So, off I went to check the price. True enough, it was RM16.99. One of the staff was nearby, so I showed her the receipt and asked her to verify, she said, I was right and asked me to go to the Customer Service Counter.

So, I went to make a complaint at the CS counter. The lady of course went to check it herself and I got my RM1 refund.

The point I want to make is, how could this have happened? Imagine those who didn't check their receipts, how much would have Tesco gained from this "mistake"? Do you think it was a mistake or was it an intentional mistake? I don't like to make blind accusations but the fact that this happened to my family a few times before, what does this tell you? You wanna have sales and special offers during holidays, make sure your system is updated! Or are your operational staff all slackers? OR, was there an intention to c.h.e.a.t.? I'm just asking and wondering. Kinda difficult to give them the benefit of the doubt when it happened more than once... So, please check your receipts when shopping at Tesco and spread the news. You might save a few bucks.

*wonders if Tesco have a Social Media Team*

Day 033 - 2 Mash-Ups in Glee

There were 2 mashups in the Glee series. One by the girls and one by the boys. I think I love the girls' better. They 'mashed up' Halo and Walking On Sunshine:

The boys did It's My Life and Confessions:

Mashup - composition created by blending two or more songs, usually by overlaying the vocal track of one song seamlessly over the music track of another.

Day 029 - Erik Grönwall : 2009 Swedish Idol

Sometimes I like to tune in to Swedish's web radio, RIX FM even though I have no idea what the Ikea they are talking about... I just love the songs they play and a few nights ago, this song was love at first tune for  me!  Of course I had no idea what the song was, so I just googled one line of the song (what i heard at that time lah) and found that it was sung by Erik Grönwall, their 2009 Idol. The name of the song, Higher, and it was the song written specially for the winner. Below is the finale by Erik...

From what I read, Erik auditioned in 2007 but didn't get through. So, he tried again 2 years later, and the rest is history. Anyway, his opponent is Calle Kristiansson:

Day 025 - Parkour Motion Reel

Pak-kwa? No, Parkour. Definition from wikipedia : Parkour (sometimes also abbreviated to PK) or l'art du déplacement (the art of moving) is the physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one's path by adapting one's movements to the environment. It is a non-competitive, physical discipline of French origin in which participants run along a route, attempting to negotiate obstacles in the most efficient way possible, as if moving in an emergency situation. Skills such as jumping and climbing, or the more specific parkour moves are employed. The object of parkour is to get from one place to another using only the human body and the objects in the environment. The obstacles can be anything in one's environment, but parkour is often seen practiced in urban areas because of the many suitable public structures available such as buildings and rails.

Kinda awesome, me thinks!

Day 021 - Don't Stop Believing - Glee :: Journey :: Sam Tsui ::

Last night, the musical series "Glee" premiered on Star World. No idea what's so famous about this series but it certainly has caught up on me because Star World has been playing the theme song to death!! The song "Don't Stop Believing" is really catchy. It was made popular originally by Journey.

Just a small town girl
Living in a lonely world
She took the midnight train going anywhere
Just a city boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train going anywhere

A singer in a smoky room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers, waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Paying anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on
Don't stop believing
Hold on to that feeling
Streetlight people

Don't Stop Believing - Journey (featuring the new band member, Arnel Pineda)

And a final version by some MySpace guy, Sam Tsui.. not bad at all! I believe he also did a tribute for MJ not too long ago.

Just found another cover by a youtube sensation, Nick Pitera. And, he was just featured in the Ellen Degeneres Show last week! Wow...

Day 020 - Sei For...

Ya, sei for becos I hv no video to post today... The past few days' posts were scheduled posts, which meant that I wrote it way earlier. But I got 'stuck' after that... how now?

Yesterday was a very sad day. I'm referring to the dragon boat training tragedy in Penang. Then later in the evening, there's the #yorais 'fever' on twitter which became a trending topic. Who started it? One of my friend ;-)

Anyway, I suddenly remembered a funny video sent by winnie not-the-pooh sometime back. Kumar the Drag Queen. Nah, watch lah! This is only the first part. There are 3 parts, I think. Continue at your own pace!

Day 018 - Awed by Avatar

Avatar was one of the best movies in 2009 IMHO, although some critics would beg to differ. One of the reasons why it was a good movie - James Cameron's vision of Pandora. Of course, coupled with state-of-the-art CGI technology, managed to heighten one's sense(s) while watching the movie. Although I did not watch the 3D version, 2D was suffice to bowled me over. And after watching this youtube video of the making, I now appreciate (very much) the works of Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver and the rest of the cast. So You Think You Can Act™ Liddat ???

Day 012 - Something About Clouds

Yesterday, while onboard a flight, I couldn't help but admire the beautiful cottony clouds... Allah is Great... was wondering how it'd feel like, the clouds I mean... can it be felt? touched? and how does it feel? like cotton? like steam? how about prancing on the clouds? would it feel springy? would i bounce or jump like a springbok? I can only imagine.... and it reminded me of this Pixar's short, "Partly Cloudy"...

Day 007 - Pwned Explained Mouliu-ly...

A mou liu video explaining the meaning of "pwned"... I think the BM equivalent is... mmm... kantoi?

I think u r pwned if someone tells u like, "eh eh, cum we go celebread tonite, makan besar..." then u ask and nudge-nudge, "eh eh, celebread wat jek?" then the answer given is like, "eh eh, kenot tell yet... secrettttt..."

I think u r pwned if u dun take sides in an argument and den later on, u r accused of errr.. not taking sides... scaredy cat-lah... no balls lah...  sitting on the fence lah... blablabla...

I think u r pwned if u tell someone, "eh eh, i'm going to stay in Padang for one month." and then someone said tis to u, "ahhh?? one month ahh?? gud luck loh... i one day oso takbleh tahan liao..."

Eh? I think I dun really know the meaning of pwned leh... aiyah, heck care lah! So, who is the Pwner and who is the Pwnee? A Pwner will always think that he's the Pwner but a Pwnee will think that he is the Real Pwner... Too Confucious for you? Ya, me too lah! For one, I'm hell sure that I'm a Pwnee who thinks I'm the Biggest Pwner... YEAHHHH! So SUE ME, parn!!!

Day 005 - Michael Jackson's Another Day

So, Michael Jackson is "back" with a new song... Mashable reported that this song previously recorded (?) with Lenny Kravitz was leaked out on youtube 2 days ago but it's not a complete song.. so, can't really 'judge' it.

Since we are on the subject of MJ, this is his performance at the 1995 MTV Awards in HD. Gone Too Soon, RIP King of Pop...
