Ok, my dish drainer and commercial LED downlights arrived today. Quality for both items are good in my opinion, not those that makes you feel disgusted upon touching it. I'm happy with the purchased.

Bought a cheap wok from Taobao previously and was a total failure. Paper thin steel, feels like throwing it out of the window. That supplier don't have much transaction let alone reviews, I was stubborn because thought I've found the right design.

Here is the link to dish drainer. https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?id=43827180489

Bought 4 of these commercial downlight to give it some industrial touch as compared to conventional LED downlight. Saw similar type at Puchong but price at rm150+ each.

How do you purchase from taobao?

can u post the link that u used to purchase those items?

I am currently doing renovation for my tiny home. And on super tight budget constraints.

So if I can buy the stuff there and get some savings, i wouldn't.

The lights that you bought, how do u know if it can be fixed into the house here in Malaysia? Are there any specifications that I should look out for? Coz i total noob in this.


Appreciate ur help!
Thanks

China shared same voltage as Malaysia so no problem for electrical items, don't buy their electrical switches or power outlet as their plug pins are different. Go open an account with 65daigou. https://www.65daigou.com.my/

There's plenty of blog that teaches you how entire system works, start with small affordable items, looked out for high numbers of user reviews(Above hundred), buy from supplier with actual product photos posted by user under review.

Do plenty of research, the more the better.

Sofa able to ship but I find it too risky imho, I mean what if damage during delivery, who is going to take responsibilities? Individual risk appetite and preferences, all up to you. Go type in Google "My Taobao loot/haul" and see items bought by individual. Seen a few who purchased furniture.

Just make sure you do enough research as there's many fake reviews out there. For furniture I suggest you get from www.tmall.com, heard better quality control.

Merry Christmas & Happy new year to everyone!!! rclxm9.gif Several parcels on the way by ship, will update accordingly when goods arrived. Still hunting for my elusive dining table, been to HomeDec, Perfect Living and various other furniture shops/malls, nothing came near to what I want. Need natural wood color in lighter shade for my table top but most out there had darker tone. Walked around Viva mall today, saw some that are closed to my target but color of wood just ain't right, most design also can be seen on Taobao/Tmall and each easily cost 2.5K to 4k.

Discussed with wife if we should get it from TB despite the risk involved, guess we are close to making the order. This is what we are targetting, gonna custom measurement from supplier.

Price of table - RM1400.00
Custom measurement - Length 210cm x Width 85cm x Height 75cm - Wood thickness 5cm
Metric weight is around - 100kg, shipping will cost around RM500.00 (Estimation)
Agent Fee - Should be around RM100.00

Total RM2000.00

Will conclude this table end of next month.

If many people buy from that seller, can take the risk.

No chairs, table only. Still discussing minor details such as wood color with manufacturer via Daigou. I may place order around end of Feb or early March.

Thanks for sharing, seen quite a few of these during Homedec. It's nice but unable to match my ID theme plus these timber top don't come cheap, easily 4K onward for 7ft. I'm moving towards Modern Industrial while this type more suitable for Balinese, Resort or Zen.

The design and wood color here are limited, I had to take the risk from Taobao. If it fails....to bad. laugh.gif

Glad all glass balls were well protected, none broken. Everything in good order.

Length is adjustable.

Total 15 glass balls sockets.
Hi, nice lights.. you bought the 15cm 15 bulbs type? Sorry, but I do not know how to read mandarin. What is the difference between 15cm and 12cm ones? Also, can the light bulbs be arranged in a rectangular shape rather than cluttered round?

I've bought 12cm 15 bulbs. No idea how much bigger 15cm is, perhaps you want to look at user's review photos. Can only install my lights end of Feb but I think it's possible to arrange into rectangular shape.
