Props to DHL. There was one time when I ordered my DVD and paid the expensive shipping, and it arrived in 2 weeks when it’s supposed to arrive in 2 – 5 days. But this one, mentioned on the site, the shipping delivery estimate is November 29th, but it arrived today, November 27th. Speedy, just like the advertisement claims
I saw on the site that it says ‘with delivery courier’ and I thought I’ll get it tomorrow cuz it’ll be delivered to the headquarter first but an hour later, it arrived My mom had to go get it cuz I wasn’t ready.. I was still in PJ and all. I was eating my breakfast, man.
I’m always excited looking like a retard when I receive this box. LOL. Maybe because I love receiving stuff. I’m materialistic, yeah, so what?
They don’t use the ‘bubble wrapper’.. I forgot what it’s called, but it’s the thing with small ‘bubble’ that you can pop. I like that thing. It’s fun popping the air bubble thing.. but now they use the air bag like that. Much more safer I think, lol but it’s no fun.
Yeah, don’t ruin your surprise. Of course.. inside the envelope is the invoice, lol. If you don’t open your gift first, you’d know what’s in it by reading the invoice. Since I’m so pathetic that I sent the gift to myself (own xmas gift, lol) I already know what’s in it. But the wrapping is nice though
Here’s the content of my package. A ‘HOME IMPROVEMENT‘ DVD and a wrapped ‘THE GOLDEN GIRLS‘ DVD.
The HI cover is ‘beveled’, which is nice. The pic of where Tim is at is actually a hole… Tim’s picture is actually on the DVD, not the cover box which is a nice cover art unlike other DVD I have. LOL my kitty JOJO was all excited too, cuz it’s her first time seeing a box like that with stuff and air bag inside So I told her to be my model when I take pictures.
My own Christmas gift to myself. Hey it’s not pathetic… I don’t celebrate christmas so I don’t get gifts from other people It’s nicely wrapped too.. I think it’s kinda worth USD$3 – 4. If you consider in Malaysian ringgit, it’s not worth it but in USD, it is.
LOL.. yeah.. ‘Santa’ sent the gift to me.. How surprising.
Since I actually paid for the wrapping, I have to carefully open the wrapping. It’s a high quality wrapping paper too.. not like an ordinary wrapping paper that we see at the mall in Malaysia that cost like RM2 or so. They use satin ribbon too which is nice. The card is free though.
Ah… the good ol’ Golden Girls…
Both of my DVDs with the ‘model’, JOJO… lol. She’s a hyperactive kitty..
The inside is standard. So far, only my BOY MEETS WORLD SEASON 1 DVD that has the disc in each compartment and not overlapping like that.. but season 2 they make it like that. Not complaining though.
Not much art/pictures on the cover.. except for the picture of Al, Tim and Jill and Al, Tim and Heidi on the side.. If I’m not mistaken, season 3 is the season where Heidi starts appearing as Tool Girl and no more Pamela Anderson. No picture of the boys since they’re on the box cover and one of the discs.
Unlike Home Improvement, Golden Girls’s cover has more pictures.
But inside it’s the same standard disc placement… 2 of the discs overlapping each other.
Well that’s the end of my review. Now I’m gonna go watch the DVD cuz I’m too excited LOL. I’ve been in a very bad mood for the past month so the DVDs are all I need right now. I’m glad it arrived before I have to go back to KL Phew, worries gone. I need a fricken job so I can get more DVD… I’m officially obsessed with TV series DVD.
I should make a new video… I want to go back to KL. It’s so boring here. But I’m excited that my DVD package is now in Malaysia!
It just arrived at the airport Edit: Left the airport already, yay!… so either tomorrow or Tuesday I should be getting it Great! I can go back to KL on Wednesday, see my doc on Thursday and take my exam voucher on Friday.

So last Friday, I went out for breakfast with mom before going to the phone company. I’ve been craving for the curry noodle ..the stall is famous among us malays. By 7 or 8 am the stall would be full and by 10 am everything would be finished. My mom and I had to wait like 15-20 mins to get seats
Despite the stall being small and uh quite hidden, they have the yummiest curry noodle (or soup) in my opinion. Their fried noodle is also good but it’s not so famous. People usually buy it when the curry (or soup) noodle is out of stock.
So after breakfast we went to the phone company, TM Point to ask them why both of my internet connections still not working. I got the lady who kinda gave me the idea that she actually knows what’s wrong and phoned the people… so i got my net connection back in 5 hours.. YAY! DAMN. A month of no internet connection and had to borrow other people’s line.. pure torture. No other torture is greater than not having my net connection. My other connection is still out though.
I changed something in the video page so that video responses or with my name in their tags will show up, but unfortunately the listing of the videos is screwed up if I do that. I want the list show up from old video uploaded to the latest not mixed up… so I’ll just post any video responses I get individually. Here’s something from my subscriber, xvulcanravenx aka Romedawg
I’ve been up all night… nevermind what I’ve been doing (nothing X-rated okay??) but at 7 AM, amazon.com finally shipped my DVD. The damn DHL people finally picked up the package. It took them a whole day to deliver my DVD… maybe because I requested The Golden Girls DVD wrapped as in like a present? $4 yo, wrapping ain’t free.

I can’t wait to receive it. It’s been a year of no tv series DVD… Torture man, complete torture. I don’t know how many billion times I’ve watched the current tv series DVD I have – Boy Meets World (season 1 & 2) and The Wayans Brothers. I want more *greedy*
It says the package will arrive on November 29th… I so hope it’ll arrive earlier than that. I have to go back on the 29th because I have an appointment with my dermatologist on the 30th.
I finally ordered some DVD from amazon.com… wow, it’s been a year since I last ordered which was July last year. I only order TV series DVD because we don’t have the tv series I like here in Malaysia.. it’s all the stupid latest tv shows like The O.C, One Tree Hill, 24, Alias etc that I don’t even watch. I’m more into sitcoms. So after much thought, I bought two DVDs:
Home Improvement Season 3!
I grew up watching HI. It’s one of the best tv shows in the 90′s. Of course JTT was an added bonus, lol. I used to be so obsessed with JTT.
The first plan was to get season 1 and 2 but after much thoughts, I decided to get season 3 instead… There’s way too much on season 1 that I already have on tape and watched like a billion times…
The Golden Girls season 1!
Oh how I remember watching The Golden Girls every week when I was 11 or 12.. it was shown before Home Improvement. Weirdly, when it was shown on Disney Channel years ago, I never watched it o.O;
I didn’t plan to buy this.. because I’m in HI phase, but after watching the trailer that’s included in one of my Boy Meets World’s DVD, I decided to get it ..
You don’t get funny shows like these anymore Serious tv-drama like Alias, 24, etc conquers the tv. After ordering, I thought about changing to season 2 of Home Improvement but damn, amazon.com people are so fast.. they’re already packing the stuff for shipping and I can’t change anything.. lol. Now the DVD better arrive before I have to go back to Kuala Lumpur next week.
I need a job, I have like 3429783402834 more tv series DVD I HAVE to get..
