More goodies…

Murano glass comes from the Venetian island of Murano in Italy, and is mostly hand-made, making each piece unique. Liquid glass is molded with various additives and decorative materials as it is cooling to fashion a variety of items ranging from jewelry to paperweights.

If you ever get the chance, do get yourself one of these lovely pieces…my parents brought these back from their European cruise/ tour! :) Warning though, these babies don’t come cheap!


Purple – my dad’s choice, since he knows I love purple…


I love this turquoise-aqua blue…the silver accents are gorgeous!


This one was more conservative, and came just as a pendant, but very pretty nonetheless…


On a separate note, a fruit basket arrived at the house for me on Tuesday. I got quite a surprise when I found out it was from…TrichoKare. After that pissed-off ranty post I wrote about their services (I hadn’t mentioned a WORD to the actual people at the salon, btw!), I suppose their marcomms manager came across the post and matched the details on my blog to the customer details at the salon.

The hamper came with a letter as well, apologizing for the experience. But as a colleague put it, it was quite odd, since the letter went along the lines of “we would like to revise the dissatisfaction, the fruit basket is a sign of appreciation on the feedbacks given”…??

Admittedly, it was a nice gesture by them (and good to know that their communications department actually monitors blogs!) – I only hope that there’s actually something DONE about it, rather than “all talk no action”. Only time will tell…

I have seen Murano glass from somewhere when I was searching for something, all the while, i thought it was just the usual glass type pendants, but boy! I believe you now when you say it's expensive! Those look lovely!!!! Your parents are sweet!

that is funny about the fruit basket thanking you for the feedback! LOL oh well, at least your opinions matter to them!

the pendants all look so gorgeous! as for the fruit basket, well, i think its a kind gesture as well, at least they did something abt it. tonnes of companies out there won't give a damn to complaints. at least they are aware that they have something to save

askmewhats: hehe..they are! but you know, about the fruit basket - the lady never mentioned anywhere that she read it from my blog...you'd think a COMMUNICATIONS person would know how to properly introduce themselves!

tine: LOL! you know my daddy dearest lah...he'll never forget my fave colour after that "jinggu" incident!

prettybeautiful: true, but if they're going to do something about it, it should be done properly - honestly, would giving you a fruit basket make you want to go back to a place that gave you horrible service? hmmm...

At least they tried to rectify the damage done, which is better than just keeping mum about it. Hehe.
