Zalora, CollectCo: Return Refund and where to find them.

Ordered a belt from Zalora. I really love this belt with automatic leather buckle. The price can be very expensive. Original leather with that kind of buckle cost at least RM150 and above. However I found this belt in Zalora for only Rm44.90.

Is is a real leather? Yes. I am sick of this fake kind of leather. It prone to snap and break. The real leather are more elastic and more resistant to wear and tear.

One thing about shopping in Zalora is ( everyone will agree with this), is the size they advertise does not always match the real product. Who are working behind this Zalora stuff? Do they feel  guilty on lying to their customer. They were selling clothing, accessories, shoes, belt, online! Size does matter.

So, when the belt was advertise to be this length... what I received today is 20cm shorter. 20 cm!! I can accept plus minus 5. But this is 20cm. This is the second time such thing happened to me.

Rest assure. Zalora have 30 days return policy. You can return the item to them for free. How to return it?

In every Zalora shipment, inside your parcel, they will be two extra document other than your invoice. It was a PosLaju slip and or CollectCo sticker. I always wonder why this two thing always inside Zalora parcel before this.

I decided to return my item today. Log in to, click my order then click exchange& return link.

Then just follow the instruction, I am done. Zalora has been notified on my return. I ask for bank transfer method of return. I don't trust Zalora anymore.

So what to do with my parcel? If you order from Zalora, you will realised that the plastic bag they used to ship the item (with Zalora logo on it), is actually a reusable plastic bag. You can use that, put it back, glue it and do whatever you want.

Me, on the other hand, bought this cheap Rm2.50 enveloped with bubble wrap and plastic lining on it(I love that enveloped and I blame myself on tearing my reusable Zalora plastic bag with no patience). This time, I will tried to use CollectCo method of return, instead of PosLaju.

I just use the sticker provided, paste it on my enveloped with my item inside. Then the instruction says, "Drop your item at the nearest CollectCo collection centre near you". Where is it?

I google through their web page and it says that there are one collection centre near my area. The address was " GoodMedic Pharmacy..... ... ..". A pharmacy? Is this a joke?

I refresh the page twice and opened my eyes wide with disbelieves, it did gave me an address of a pharmacy nearby. So  I decided to give it a shot. I found that pharmacy, located in Taman Midah which is very close to my apartment.

GoodMedic Pharmacy

This is the pharmacy that I found, it did not look like a post office. I was walking in front of this pharmacy for a few times before I dare to walk in. It's a normal pharmacy. 

It was very awkward to go into a pharmacy and said " Can you send my parcel to Zalora?". People will think I am a crazy or stupid. Probably, they will laugh at me and said " Sir, this is a pharmacy". 

If there is another postal service nearby maybe I can pretend that I am made a mistake and  enter a wrong shop. No postal service nearby....

I had to read CollectCo web page a few times and it still points me to this pharmacy. 

No one will recognise me anyway. I rarely walk around this street.  So I decided to get in, and said, with a low volume shy voice " Can I send my parcel here?" 

A Chinese girl behind the counter immediately responded "CollectCo?" 

Yes. I was relieved. Haha. I handed her my parcel, she look at it, ask a few details whether I am a seller or buyer, something like that. She ask me whether I've keep the barcode to track my item already, and then a smile " OK..that's all". That's it. I was literally dropping my parcel in a pharmacy in the middle of nowhere.... A bit exaggerated but it still feel a bit strange. 

I google CollectCo again, there were actually a lot of them scattered around KL. In those shops that you certainly would not expect to be handling a postal service like PosLaju. 

I said I did not trust Zalora, but most likely, I will buy from them again, cause of this easy return stuff. I can just walk a few hundred metres from my apartment into a pharmacy and return my item if I didn't like it. 


This is the address.

Astro Remote volume not responding

I have been looking around for solution when my Astro beyond remote start having problem where it does not want to control the volume of my astro anymore.

The strange thing is, the remote seem fine and only the mute and volume won't respond.

After realizing that the remote cost around rm250 to be replaced, I start thinking that this is not an ordinary remote control.

After a few minutes of research (only) I found out that this remote can be programmed to be synchronize with our television.

Hmmm. So the remote problem must be cause by it some programming error.


Turn out of you have similar problem like this, all you had to do is to press OK button with volume down until it bleep 4 times then it will be ok. This method canceled the volume control for the television ( meaning that you can only control the tv volume not the decoder).

Later I found out that if you want, you can use your tv only volume to control the astro thus no hassle to have 2 remote at the same time.

Master in Pathology (Malaysia): A Guide To Apply.

A Guide to Apply for Master in Pathology (Mpath) 
1. Make up your mind. I've seen a few of my friends who apply for this pathway and get confused before it begin. Ask yourself, are you really interested in Pathology? Do you know what pathology is? Do you know what kind of work are you going to do in Pathology. 
Most of the time, people thought pathology MO or specialist were all just sitting down drinking coffee and chit chat all day long. No work to do. Think again. The best thing to do is to get yourself into the department itself. Work as a pathology MO first, in a few…

Becoming a medical officer in Malaysia: Are you still a real doctor?

To recap from my previous post, a person must completed 5-6 years study in medical school, pass their professional exam, enter 2 years house officer training program, pass their exam and completed their logbooks, then a person can now be called a fully registered Medical Officer / Medical Doctor.

A Journey of a Junior Medical Officer

After 7 or 8 years experience, a house officer will be given a full registration under Malaysian Medical Council. This registration process is a lengthy process which takes up months before it will be completed. Most doctors will apply for full registration 4 months before they finish their house officer training program. The registration will be processed only if all the criteria has been fulfilled by the house officer which includes log book, review by a board of specialist, no disciplinary action recorded, and other paper work stuff that need to be settled. A full registration means that the doctor now can practice as a doctor independently. They can wo…
