Ordering Online

Two Christmases ago, I sent Christmas cards to my friends, one in Maldives, one in Abu Dhabi and one in Australia. Guess what, nobody received a card from me. So I never bothered to send cards again last Christmas.

This is one of the example I hesitate buying online here in Cambodia. I am not that confident with the postal service here. So far though, I have received all my online orders. I have ordered from Amazon, from a bead supplier in US and the recent one from Victoria's Secret.

Yesterday, I received my Victoria's Secret package. I ordered it online and have it shipped via international shipping only (no tracking). Luckily, it arrived a day before the target date. Hubby picked it up for me and only had to pay 2,500Riels or $0.50 for the taxes. Yay!

Even though I have received all my orders online, I still feel jittery every time I hit the "buy now" button.

I am planning to order online again. I saw a nice green bag from Got Briefcases which is on sale. I want to buy a green bag because they say green is the lucky color this year of the water snake. And I think having a green bag will bring in more financial luck.

I also want to try to order from JCrew. I am always at their site. I have been lusting over some of their pieces but I always end up discarding my cart because of fear they might not arrive here.

But with the recent success in online ordering, I have gotten a little confident. I will let you know if I decide to buy the bag and some items from JCrew.
