My Aliexpress Experience – Shipment to Philippines

First, let me share with you my shipping FAQs when ordering abroad.

Below are the answers for Aliexpress.

Will my item arrive and in good condition?
Yes!

Will I pay for custom fees?
Possible. It will depend on the cost of your purchased item.

Will it be door to door delivery?
If you chose the free shipping (China registered air mail), no! You will have to claim it in your municipality post office. And pay an additional 112php (as of Dec 2015)!!!

Ok, enough of my tiny FAQs hehehe!

When you order from Aliexpress, you have an option for “FREE SHIPPING”, usually via China Registered Airmail. If you chose this, your item will be delivered to your municipality post office (not door to door)! Well in my case.

For my item, I got the claim letter from the post office 20 days after Aliexpress confirmed my payment.

Then on the same day, I claimed my item.
They only asked me for my ID. Then asked me to log on their log book!

I paid 112 pesos for the post office fee!!!! Arghhhhh… before it was just 50 pesos… then became 100… then 112 because they added VAT 😐

Below are my ordered items! Alive and kicking! LOL

Spectra 3 Breast Pump Review (After 1 Year of Use)

This is a review on Spectra 3 Breast Pump.

image

I’ve been using Spectra 3 Breast Pump for quite some time now, and I’m very HAPPY with it!

On my first baby:
1 1/2 years, thrice a day, for 15 minutes

On my second baby (current):
2 months, once a day, for 15 minutes

Annnddddd it is still working properly! Whew! I plan to still use this when I go back to work!

I bought it from Babymama for 4,900 pesos only!

Below are my Pros and Cons.

Pros
– Easy to setup
– Easy to clean
– The machine is heavy so it will not trip easily
– it does its job, compared to my avent single electric pump, I can get more milk with Spectra 3 in much lesser time
– affordable! At 4,900 pesos, you can have double electric breast pump!
– adjustable suction

Cons
– heavy (you cannot bring it with you when your on the go, unless you want to tone your arms LOL)
– at some point, some milk are stuck in the short tubing (the tube near the breastkit), I’m not sure why 😦
– dirt  accumulates in the surface of the tubes, maybe because of it’s velvety texture?

Recommendation:
This is good for moms who will soon be “pumping moms” (hahahaahha!) and want to save since it affordable, and it does its job!
