Bad news: I accidentally deleted all the pictures in my camera, hence there isn’t any proof of my happening weekend T____T Happening weekend also made me sicker 🙁

OK so today I shall blog about my haircut at Shawn Cutler!


So I guess I have nothing to blog about *gloom

You can all go now, there’s nothing to see here…

Sigh it’s ok since I’m awake at 9am and I don’t have to go to work, I shall talk about it even without the pictures.

Here’s the long story.

Thanks to my this post about Malaysian Dreamgirl, I won myself a RM500 makeover package from Shawn Cutler and a mini HP laptop! Yeah very exciting right?? So lucky right?! I thought so too. I was crazy excited when I first found out TWO months ago that I won all these.

So fast forward a few weeks later. I came back to Malaysia and was so eager to get that voucher from Shawn Cutler cause my hair really looked like shit. The thing is, I had to go through so many parties to get that voucher. I had to go through  Capxion Media (the organizer) and they had to get it from Shawn Cutler.

Now I don’t know whose fault this is but they said Shawn hadn’t prepared the voucher yet blabla so I can’t get it yet blabla….until….two months later.

Fine, so I persevered and stuck to my ugly hair. A few of you asked why didn’t I just go get my hair dyed and cut and this is why– cause I’m getting this voucher and I didn’t want it to go to waste.

Oh yeah, in the midst of the excitement of getting this voucher, I completely forgot about the laptop. Suddenly, sometime in July (2 months after I won the laptop), I got a call informing me that Capxion’s office was broken into. And guess what? My laptop was stolen……

But guess what again? The thieves didn’t steal my voucher wtf. I wasn’t very upset although I did feel like I was being scammed cause godammit I just want to color and cut my hair!!!!!

So lalala, I went through a whole lot of trouble to get the voucher and happy me got the voucher and went to Shawn Cutler two weeks ago.

Since the voucher is worth RM500 (as stated in the website), I was expecting a cut, color, treatment package. BUT! When I finally went all the way to Bangsar, Shawn told me that nooo, the voucher is only for ONE measly haircut. Right Shawn/Capxion, so now I AM being scammed. RM500 for one haircut?

At that moment, I truly felt like a donkey with a carrot dangling in front of him, only to have that carrot taken away after he has done all his work.

So I went back home with utmost disappointment. At night, Tim helped me and called up the CEO of Capxion Media and demanded for an explanation. After a whole lot of going back and forth, he finally agreed to compensate me with a goody bag worth RM400 and promised to get me the laptop once they get their insurance money (which will take 1 month)

I don’t want some stupid goody bag which is probably not worth RM400 and is probably filled with things I don’t want and don’t need anyway!!

But alas, what can I do? Tim went through a lot of trouble to help me and the CEO decided to throw in another RM100 cash. He said Shawn was the one who refused to give that RM500 makeover package although it was written in the agreement. But Shawn told me he was never told that it’ll cost him RM500 per package.

Right….so I’m back to being that donkey again.

Whatever it is, I’m just retelling the story as it is without being biased, cause I really don’t know who is at fault here. All I know is both parties are not delivering what they had promised!

But I don’t think there’s anything else I can do so I just accepted the stupid goody bag and got my haircut at Shawn Cutler yesterday. Nothing much to rave about the haircut cause my hair still looks the same hohum. Well, at least they massaged my neck now I feel like all my stress has been relieved wtf

So yeah, lesson learnt. I was too happy and excited about winning those prizes, hence the disappointment that followed was magnified ten times more. Like they say, don’t count your chickens before they hatch. Wah got idiom somemore wtf

p.s: did anyone notice the pun in my title!
