I am seriously late to this whole Wish bandwagon thing but mostly because I really hate waiting – I want next day delivery – and also because my card has issues with online purchases. But I had cash in a PayPal account I couldn’t get the money out of so I thought eh, I’ll give it a go and sat browsing late one evening because insomnia.

A few bloggers have posted and I’ve seen some rather hilarious Facebook posts from people I know who ordered clothing or cushions etc and were hilariously failed so I decided that I’ll give anything like that a wide birth. Stationary was going to be a choice because how could you really go wrong there I guess but then again I don’t actually need that. I looked at some bamboo watches but I was hesitant because they were cheaper than usual but not so cheap that if this whole thing went tits up I could write it off. Then under suggested items an LED tracing light pad popped up which is something I’ve been coveting because usually I have to use the window’s of my door during the day when tracing from one page to the next – I always draw a rough draft and then trace that onto the expensive paper when I’m happy with it.

They range from about R500 and up but it’s a want for convenience not really a necessity so not exactly worth spending two weeks grocery money on but it was listed as  R180 on Wish which included the shipping and thought shit, this might be worth a gamble…

Yesterday I got to go fetch it! 

A whole damn 2 months after I’d ordered it but it’s PERFECT! It works exactly how it should. It’s light weight and portable and plugs into my MacBook so I can take it with me and use even if there isn’t a two point plug or whatever around so now I’m not limited to daylight hours and sore arms!

I have two wire bound Kraft paper notebooks I got for a side project that should arrive soon as well I guess? But I’m so happy that this particular gamble paid off. That said, I don’t think I’ll be ordering from them again though, simply because shit the wait is excruciating and I don’t want to push my luck either!

** Oh and just a heads up – SAPO has now added a R24 “handling fee” on ALL overseas packages over and above any customs fees. Guess they could smell a money making opportunity, so just something to keep in mind when you order things…

  1. I’m an Aliexpress girl but its really same same. The wait drives me crazy but when all my pretties (pens and washi generally) arrive it feels like Christmas :)
