Read the following sentences.
“You have won a Salonpas sample pack!”
“You have been chosen to receive Sample pack of 5 Salonpas!”
I am not complaining about the product description. It’s just that the 2 sentences have very different meanings. The first sentence was the title of the e-mail that I have received. As for the second sentence, it’s taken from the content.
It’s because of this tweet, that I clicked on the link and left a comment with regards to Salonpas. At first, I thought the sample would be sent to me via post. Well, it didn’t.

4. Turn left at the pavement and cross Roberts Lane

I love the fact that they actually bothered to give specific instructions, add a picture of the building that they are in and a map! It really helps for someone who has never been there before. The building stands out from it’s peers. Drop by there to have a look and you shall get what I meant by that.
Nuffnang Singapore is taking up one of the units in that particular building. Enter the unit no. on the machine and call. Talk to the owner before the glass door opens itself for you. Security.
Cosy workplace! I was greeted by a lady, who was waiting by the door. I was greeted by her outside the unit, filled up a form as required and it’s done!
Am I the very first to pick up the sample? I went on the first day, at noon. 😉
1 sample pack contains:
1 Salonsip Gel Patch
1 Salonpas 30
1 Salonpas Pain Relief Patch
Few days after I have collected the sample, I received yet another e-mail.
“… You can choose to send a postage affixed envelope to me (38 Kinta Road #02-03 Singapore 219107), complete with your full address
For the Salonpas pack, a normal sized envelope with about $0.50 stamp should do fine.
Do let me know.

Hmmm. Should I be happy or sad?
