Rings that bind

Last October 10, I ordered this couple fun ring for my niece. It is called Angel and Devil rings. One is black and the other is silver. The cheapest I can find was worth PHP55.00 (USD0.94). The item was originally priced at PHP76.00 (USD1.30). That was actually cheaper than the shipping fee which was PHP60.00 (USD1.03). That time, there was a shipping discount worth PHP60.00 so thankfully I saved a lot from that for the shipping was free.

The store has a one-time discount voucher worth PHP5.00 (USD0.086) which I applied on top of the shipping fee discount. Then, I redeemed 12 Shopee coins which was the maximum amount of coins that I can redeem for that particular purchase.

All in all, I was able to save PHP77.00 (USD1.32). From PHP115.00 (USD1.97), it came down to PHP38.00 (USD0.65).

The expected date for this to arrive was October 23. However, that day arrived but my order did not. Usually, my orders arrive on or before the expected date.

Good thing there is a tracker informing me the movement of my order. The last update I had was October 20 stating that the parcel arrived at the station. To which station, I do not know.

I understand that the order came from overseas. According to the tracker, my parcel arrived in Manila from China last October 16. So the delay was not from the seller. The movement of the parcel was quick from October 16 until the 17th. I was again updated on the 19th and the 20th and then nothing.

This is the first time that I experienced this kind of delay so I am concerned. I have paid my order in full. I was thinking that I can forget all about it for it was a small amount. I am willing to lose that just to have a peace of mind. You see, I'm a worrier that's why I can't help but think like that.

I gave it time and waited on the 23rd. When my order did not arrive, I then sought out the help desk of the app and sent a query about my order. There was a message box that states there is a delay in orders.

Last month, there was an issue about this app wherein a lot of employees have been laid off. This could be the reason why orders are not moving quicker than it should.

Yesterday, I had a call from an unregistered number. Good thing I answered because most of the time, if a number called me, I do not answer unless I was sent an SMS first.

The delivery guy did message me but I haven't read the message right away. Some delivery companies do not call but would knock on your gate/door and shout for your name which is embarrassing especially in a neighborhood like us where houses are right next to each other and sound echoes and carries over everywhere.

Excuse my hand but those are the rings that I have tried. The black is on my ring finger but it is not that black. The ring pictured on the app was darker and not as shiny. I thought they were of the same size but the one on my pinkie does not fit my ring finger. You can easily adjust them though but I don't want to do that.

I don't know anything about rings. I just took a photo and sent it to my niece. She seems delighted by it. She will be receiving that in December when they come home.

All's well that ends well.

I don't know much about rings either, but they are very nice, I have also experienced that kind of delays in shipments and sometimes it is a little worrying, but well, you have to have hope, once I was surprised that what I bought arrived in 7 days and it was not, in 3 days it was already in my hands, it was very strange but I was very excited, it was a great surprise.

Those rings are nice, elegant, I like that style too, your niece will be happy. About deliveries, there are many stories about how some orders arrive on time and others are delayed and we are always waiting for them. You were lucky answering that call, when I see those kind of numbers I don't answer as well but if I know that I did some online shopping now I have learn that maybe it's better to answer!

I still didn't have experience of online shopping because I have low quality virtual market in my country. Angel and devil ring is looking beautiful in her fingers. Yeah, if we can save anything for our dearest then we should do it.

I used to wear a ring my mom gave to me when I was in elementary school. One day I got into a fight with a bully and I had to use my fist and the girl's lips was really bloodied. I felt very sorry for her becos I didn't know it would end up that way. Since then I never wore a ring
