Free voucher, you make me busy !!


Eating this fruit sundae from Haagan Dazs was not an easy attempt....
All bcos this Fri is the last day to use the S$10 voucher I redeemed from Starhub.
I have been conveniently forgetting to use it until the last min. I quickly bring the boys out seeing that it is a good weather to have some cold dessert.

We travelled 2 hrs to & fro just bcos mama wanted to use the vouchers... sorry kiddos... LOL!!
The nearest outlet from our house is that far by bus. *sob*

Actually, if I were to take into account the travel fare & time (time is money mah!!) it is actually not worth the rush down ....

But bcos the voucher is to redeem Zac's favourite dessert. I felt like I have to make it for him... :D


Luckily, it was really yummylicious.... within mins, Zac gobbled up ALL :)~~~


Seeing his satisfied look made me felt that ALL is worthwhile ... ....

Moral of the story : Don't wait till the last min to use your vouchers :)

54 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

Hi Jan!!!

We saw the ice cream..we saw the ice cream... but what was that fruit on top of the ice cream? Can't be apple right?

Abt the vouchers, yeah u shouldn't use them at the very last min. Some of us here had experienced it before n told ourselves that it should not happen again. Well it's ok to learn from mistakes! But at least Zac eventually enjoyed the tutty fruity ice cream. =)

ah ..what a great Mommy YOU are!!...
next week play "whats cooking wednesday "
with me so i can linc ya from my site!...today was a chicken surprise....lol

Sam Chan said...

Indeed, it is not Free like you said "Time is money".

Well, I believe everybody knows that Free Voucher is another business tactic. When people have the feeling of sorry for not utilizing the free voucher, that's where the company that offer free voucher had finally achieve it objective. There will be normally a scenarios of not having enough free voucher for all family members. Thus many will then have to purchase with their own money! Besides, if it taste so good, many will return for more in the future.

Anyway, you are indeed a great mummy taking all the trouble to please your children!

Best Wishes to you, Janice.

WaterLearner said...

Haha ... At least it's for Good Ice Cream. And look at how Zac simply delighting in its sweetness!!

And yes .. don't rush to use vouchers last minute.

Blessings!

Nafa : There are 3 thin slices of green apples, 1 scoop of strawberry ice-cream another scoop of cookies n cream & some assorted fruit (strawberry & peach) at the below. That cost S$9.90 !! :)

I'm usually quite fast in using the vouchers, this could be an exceptional case bcos the outlet is not within my vicinity so will have a tendency to leave out the voucher for the time being until the very last min :(

Sam : That's so true about those voucher. 70% of the time we will have to top up our own money bcos of over exceeding the voucher price. :)

Janice Supermom! The dessert looks so yummy! It's Making me hungry! Next time share a little ok! LOL Cheers!

J@n!ce said...

Karen : I may just give the voucher a miss if it is ice-cream from another vendor. I love haagan dazs ice-cream mah.... :)

J@n!ce said...

Adrian : hehe, I was thinking actually whether to get 1 pint take away in the first place. That cost S$12+ but look so much more worth. However, the thought of another dragging 1hr+ journey home just puts me off. In the end, I just grab a really nice looking one for Zac to eat there :)

The photo of the ice-cream was specially taken to share with all of you guys. Sometimes food is best appreciated from their look without tasting... hehe ;p

Hi Janice! this post is very timely and thanks for reminding me. I have a gift certificate for 2 nights stay at Marco Polo Hotel in Davao City which I got for winning a raffle in a marketing convention. The problem is, it is a 2hrs flight away from Manila.

I have to weigh the pros and cons. The certificate is worth US$200 so it will be a waste if I will not use it.

J@n!ce said...

Speedycat : Thanks for your sweet note here. I rem you as the one person first to visit my blog back then. If you still rem. How time flies ... You are a very good friend to me with always bringing laughter. I'm glad to have found you too :)

J@n!ce said...

Carlo : Congrates on your winning tickets. How nice for such a good prize stay over at a hotel. I understand your concern to that. You must be having a headache now, always the case with free things along the way. 2 hrs flight should be an easy one for you since you are always on the plane? Have fun & enjoy...

Ice-cream looks delicious. And judging by the pictures, the 2 hour travel time sure looks worthwhile ...

Hi Jan,

Nice title! For me, i always forgot to use the free vouchers and when i found it during spring cleaning days, all the vouchers have expired! Maybe i could sort and place them somewhere or give them all away.

Jan! Once I lost 65,000 points from my HSBC credit card! Heartpain I tell you!!!! :(:(:(

conan_cat said...

haagen daaz is ALWAYS good XD i'm dreaming to get that voucher lor, can i have it nxt time you don't want it? lol...

and nevermind ler, 2 hours i'm sure that it's all worthwhile for that ice cream and that happy face on your bb :D

J@n!ce said...

Marzie : How much is the 65K points from HSBC worth in $$? Seems a lot leh. You missed the redemption period is it? Sometimes within a few days maybe can just call back to explain? :)

Conan_cat : I don't dare to redeem Haagen daz voucher now cos scare similar things will happen. I rather redeem those vendor that are accessible to my house... hehe ;p

joezul said...

well, this morning I weight in at 95.5kg..so now it must have ballooned to 98 I guess, after all that satay kajang....

well, it doesnt sem so as my height is nearly 1.9m, so I guess I really do look like a stunted giant :lol:

err..I wanna ask you this, what the SEO traffic thing you always sign your comments with. I've checked the source code, it's just a normal link. Care to explain...I'm really baffled

Hi Janice, its your fault that me and my sister are now booked for a 2 hr. flight for Davao City this evening just to use our 3days/2night stay at Marco Polo Hotel. hahaha! It's a very compulsive decision on our part so the air tickets cost more than 30% than the usual :)

Have a great weekend!!!

J@n!ce said...

Joe : hehe... you are in fact the 3rd person to ask me about that. Well, I'm not too good at explaining stuff like this which I learned from my teacher, Bobby (http://revellian.com).

It has something to do with the "U comment, I follow" thing. This link will adds on more effectively for that matter. I hope this helps in clearing some doubts in you. I should get Bobby to write something on this so that we could all learn. Its class time again... hehe ;p
