Do I see $2.99 prime shipping available via coupon again? I've used up my one-month trial for prime shipping & I'll get very excited when there is special dates like 10.10 or 11.11 where I can check in to get e-coins to exchange for a one-time prime shipping.

It feels so Shiok when you can buy any items you want because you know the shipping will only be $2.99!

Remember to check in for coins!!

BIGMAN used to complain a lot about my sleeping time. I know it's alright for a married couple to sleep at different timing but we wanted to make it a point to head to bed together.

I have to admit that I lead an unhealthy lifestyle & I find sleep a waste of time. Even when I'm working, the earliest I'll head to bed was 12ish or 1am & I'll be able to wake up at 7ish!

He has been communicating with me about my sleeping time & how bad it has been etc.

I know he wakes up very early & leave house when the sky is still dark. There will be moments when he wakes me up accidentally while preparing for work & I'll get pissed off with him.

It's until this morning when I wake up at 5ish for a toilet break from my sleep then I realized it's actually very tiring for him to wake up at 5ish then go off for work at 6am.

Every single time when I need to wake up for toilet, I'll feel so sleepy & tire. It felt impossible for me to get up at such a timing.

I'm not sure why but when I wake up this morning at 9ish, it occurred to me that my poorie BIGMAN has been surviving on very little sleep & he's someone who loves to sleep A LOT!

So I tell myself, I shall be a good #dayrewives & shift my sleeping time to earlier so that he can have more sleep & it'll be less tiring for him.

I think when he read this post tonight, he'll be so HAPPIE that his wife finally "wake up her idea" on this πŸ˜‚.

And yes, my BIGMAN likes to use "wake up your idea"~

Anyway, I'm confined at home by him because I need to get started on my law assignment.

The happiest thing to look forward to is my LB delivery. And of course, to see BIGMAN tonight.

I think I've become very needy of him ever since I quitted my job & he's back.

In 2 weeks time, I can't wait!

4,699,204 out of 5,696,506 people in Singapore are internet users.

We are 0.1% of the world internet users.

Total number of Internet users in Singapore: 3,424,971,237.

Crime cases in 2014: 33,608
Crime cases in 2015: 32,315

Increase of 4%

BUT

Cybercrime experience a drastic increase even thou overall crime rate has increased by 4% only.

E-commerce crime in 2014: 1,665 cases
E-commerce crime in 2015: 2,173 cases

Increase by 30.5%

Online scams targeting buyers in 2014: 1,450 cases
Online scams targeting buyers in 2015: 1,887 cases

Increase by 30.1%.

Most of the online scams reported are mainly from shopping platforms such as #carouhell.

I've read up & data shows that the amount is not significant enough for buyers to make a police report. Imagine you are being scam $30-$50 for an online scam. Most of the time, we will just list out the username, bank details & information hoping to warn others. It will not be a police report because the amount is insignificant for us.

There is a case whereby this lady transferred a 4-digit amount to a seller on Carousell but did not receive any respond once payment has been made. She approached Carousell and they said that its part of their privacy policy not to provide any information to her which is not wrong by Singapore law based on PDPA.

Cut the story short, she did not make a police report & she lost her πŸ’°πŸ’°. There are cases whereby police report is filed but due to insufficient of evidence, the police can't do much.

I'm not saying that Carousell is bad or every seller is dishonest. Be vigilant & mindful especially if it's big amount of πŸ’°πŸ’°.

Another major online scam that has ⬆️ by 1,723%:

Credit for sex scam in 2014: 66
Credit for sex scam in 2015: 1,203

Total amount being cheated in 2015: 2.9 million
Largest amount being cheated on 2015 in a single case: 74,000SGD

Another crime that is not high in cases but high in πŸ’°πŸ’° worth:

Internet love scams in 2014: 198 cases
Internet love scams in 2015: 383 cases

Total amount cheated in 2015: 12millions

There is this lady who went to accept a friend request from a stranger who eventually befriended her & cheated her of 1.2million.

M***, 50s lost her entire savings that she intended to use for retirement & got into debt.

The "guy" who cheated her was not even physically present in Singapore. Nobody can trace which country he is from either our neighboring country or USA.

πŸ‘©πŸ»
Aged 30-59
Mostly housewives or working professionals

– vulnerable to Internet love scams & usually the loss of πŸ’°πŸ’° is very significant

πŸ‘¨πŸ»
Aged 19-40(I exclaimed at the 19 years old group)
Mostly students or young adults that does not have a spouse or in a no-sex relationship

– vulnerable to credit-for-sex scams. Loss is not significant so many went unreported

I hope I'm not boring anybody with the data but it's scary looking at stats and case studies of how vulnerable groups are being cheated via online scams & so much πŸ’°πŸ’° were lost.

The scariest part is that many of these scams are the work of syndicate and most of them are not caught yet after a few years of hard work from our police force because they are not physically present in SG yet they have the ability to cheat so much πŸ’°πŸ’°.

I see this as a boiling issue in society because more & more people are falling prey into such scams. Even the highly educated group in Singapore are being cheated of πŸ’°πŸ’°.

There are website such as scam alert, commercials on televisions, poster being pasted at void decks & many other ways to educate the people not to fall into such scams.

I can't provide exact figures because 2016 has yet to end but the amount of πŸ’°πŸ’° that has already been scammed is very significant too.

#LoveBonito just launched!
@sh3rifoo @felicetsy @sabsoh @huilin__ @whitechoco @sxnoonlush @ruthneedsmoney @sodapopp @lovingmumz @bowiechuah @Allicsirpy @teebeijia @acrxtheuniverse @jerine @cheryllee @linettewhz @saudaded @cherylxong @imalittleteapot

Anyway, I skipped today's launch. Felt so tempted by the off shoulder dress but there's way too many off shoulders in my wardrobe until BIGMAN gave me the "wake up your idea" kind of look!

Finally received the pleated dress in olive. The olive is of a lighter shade than I expected it to be.

There is no side pockets & the dress is fully lined. The material is quite good & thick too.

Closed up photo of the dress! Definitely keeping this dress.

Beautiful sunset for our #rundate!

#mandyrunninglog

Almost hit 4km today but we ran the wrong route so have to end at 3.83km because we have reach dinner place.

Finally had my kidney soup & BIGMAN added an extra pig trotter to celebrate that I have restart my running regime once againπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Thank God that the food wasn't sold out today!!

We are both true blue teochew who loves pig trotter. I love the skin where collagen is stored at while BIGMAN loves the meat. I think we are the best partner in crime for this sinful pig trotter.
