 9 March All books ordered. =)

Fay
 21 March Due to bad weather condition, our parcels were being held up in various airports. 

Please be patience with them. Once all the parcels reach cgw, I will consolidate and ship them out asap. Cant wait for my book!
 3 April Some of the books are here and ready for collection:

Emailed:
Bekky/ theredglove
Alicia
Jacqueline Lin / girlynails1985
Amelia/tangledblur

Still waiting for more books to arrive at my house. =)

 
 11 AprilI received some of the parcels today. Apparently, they sent me one parcel which doesn't belong to me. I think they must have mistaken one of our parcels with someone's else. CGW is coming to collect that parcel tml and send me ours instead.

I will be sorting out the books on this Friday and mailing out the parcels next monday. So keep a lookout for my email over the weekends!

Sorry for such a long wait.

Can't wait for the books.
Fay
 20 AprilIt has been more than a week of waiting and I only received the news of our last parcel yesterday. cgw found it in their US warehouse and promised to deliver to me by 26 April.

I need the last parcel to divdle the shipping cost equally among ourselves.

Sorry for the delay. =(

I can't accept used book section or any new book sold by third party. This is because:
1. Although they seem to be cheaper, the price excludes an additional cost of 3.99 shipping fee per book.
2. plus, the book ships separately from amazon. More parcels will incur higher shipping fee too!! >.< it will be unfair for everyone~<
