You can sit and wait for 2 hours and then collect your items.
The 2nd place is at beach road. The shop's name is called Chong Lee. Look for this gentleman called Tony. He is the owner of this shop. Please let them know that it's Elizabeth or Ms Yee(the piano teacher who recommend). If there's anything else that i can assist you, do let me know.
For lucky plaza, it has been a place which I avoided since i am young. The only reason which kept me going there is
1) Cheap watch shop ( I bought my Tag Heuer @ 25% off retail)
2) place to purchase perfume (always buy my POLO black)
Went there as per recommend to set up my diamond with ready casing. However hipcup with Leipo is unavoidable. Sheena (lady boss) tried to help to smooth some area on the ring which I requested. However her hostile husband try to stop and start to nag; saying ready casing is simply like this and cannot be mend. I work in an industry which deal with tooling and plastic injection. I hope the tooling does pose a problem here. And seriously workmanship is in doubt. If you go for simple & cheap design. Ok, fine you might want to check. However if you encounter any problem along the way, it be very hard for you to persuade them to “touch up”.
I gave Sheena the credit that from start tills the end, she able to attend me and answer my doubts (but she simply tell me, the design is so, so, so.., never once she think it about the workmanship.)
I give lot of credit to myself!! Why? I am there for freaking 2 hours listening to her husband speaking in Cantonese and talking to himself : saying I demand too much, and it not possible to do what I want.
Anyway in short, i am pretty pissed. However on the other hand, one of my friend who did a 6claw tiffany design is quite satis with their job.
High expectation leads to higher disappointments. However I’m buying for somebody who i am in love with for 7 years. i do believe to have right to demand better.
After i proposed, will ask my dear whether she want to change that damn case! it has been a bad dreams for me in weeks. I am happy it end here. In a process, we learn some stuff here and there. For this above, I learnt~ Lucky plaza…. Mmmmm….mmmm….really cannot go there, man!
