Introducing HERMISO.COM for Shopping Household Goods Online

For busy Mommy with very active toddler (or demanding baby), well in my case, I am very pregnant too at the moment, trudging through a crowded supermarket or shopping mall on a weekend to get my weekly groceries or replenish other household good supply for my house is not quite a compelling idea any more.

But lo and behold.

Thanks to technology, shopping has now been made easy (Hallelujah!) and we can have our our dry groceries or other bulky household products delivered right to our doorstep with some simple clicks.

This said, I would like to introduce you to HERMISO.com, a leading Malaysia's online shopping store which offers a wide variety of local household products (non-perishables) and other unique selection of Japanese products. Kiss good-bye to long queue in supermarket's cashier counter, traffic jams and heavy load of shopping bags... plus a very angry toddler screaming and rolling on the floor as the parents refuse to get him/her yet another toy, Kinder Surprise Egg or Chup-a-Chup. The latter is based on real life experience by the way. Mine to be precise.

Moving on, to start your happy shopping experience with HERMISO.com, all you need to do first is of course, go to their website

Forget about walking down a long aisle to find a certain product in a huge supermarket. You can simply search the goodies that you would like to buy from the categories that HERMISO.com systematically lists.



The awesome #auntiness inside me always ensures that I buy baby or kids necessities every time I do grocery shopping. As such, I buy all the things I need for Naomi and baby #3 from the BABY AND TOYS Category in this site. To ease your shopping experience, you can also find the specific products you are searching for from the narrowed-down categories too.


Ah yes.. when I shop, I normally set a certain budget before splurging on purchases. If I do online shopping, I tend to sort all the products shown in the website by the price range so it's easier for me to find products that meet my budget.



Next, once you have selected the products that you would like to get, just add them to the cart.


When you have filled your shopping cart with all the stuff that you need, just check out like what you usually do when you do online shopping elsewhere. If you are new customer, create an account first to finish your shopping with HERMISO.com.

Finally, complete your purchase by keying in some personal details of yours (that can be retrieved on your next purchases).


And my friend, one or two clicks later...

You are done shopping! Just sit back and relax. The delivery guy will ring your house's bell and hand you your purchases within 1-3 working days.


Within 2 working days, my goodies from HERMISO.com arrived safe and sound in a neat packaging like below.

My parcel is home!

Now, I don't have to go out to supermarket and lug heavy bags containing few kilograms of formula milk for Naomi and myself for the coming weeks. Thanks, HERMISO.com!

My loots from HERMISO.com

At the moment, HERMISO.com delivers nationwide including Sabah and Sarawak. Additionally, it offers free delivery with purchase of RM99 and above (for Peninsular Malaysia region)!

Raise your hand if you think shopping groceries online like this is convenient, time-saving and great for sticking to your budget too, especially if you are very busy or don't drive a car for whatever reason.

The Last Tri-Semester

How are you, world?

I have been on blogging hiatus, unintentionally, because I have been really swamped with a lot of stuff lately. Also, every time I have some spare time to blog or bake, nowadays I just prefer to lie down and chill in front of my TV watching Netflix. For months, I planned to bake something on weekend... but in reality, my oven and bread maker are obviously on sabbatical until further notice. Talk about laziness and lethargy level God.

Baby #3's latest picture, taken a couple weeks back.

Anyway, the so called "Honeymoon Period" a.k.a the second tri-semester of my pregnancy with Baby #3 is over now and we both are growing bigger together until the EDD. The second tri-semester went pretty okay I guess but not exactly without any bumps along the road. The biggest bump so far is my aggravated haemorrhoids problems. I don't know why but this time around, my haemorrhoids have given me a lot of issues and few emergency trips to the hospital simply because they've caused pretty bad rectal bleeding that I mistakenly thought a bleeding from my uterus as well as severe constipation that required medical intervention. Every time I do a long walk, say like groceries shopping, or if I get too tired from doing some activities that require me to stand up for some time, my haemorrhoids will show up and they become downright painful. Hence, no walk in the park for me for the time being.

Other pregnancy symptoms so far are pretty text book. I get shortness of breath, back ache, very frequent urination (I just gotta go almost all the time), sciatica and sometimes insomnia. My appetite is bigger than my husband's these days. I can eat like a construction worker and still feel hungry a couple hours after my meal time. I crave milk a lot so I have been gulping down gallons of milk like a baby. A lot of times, I feel like I am as big as a whale, although technically I still have not gained much as compared to my first pregnancy. In addition, lately, I move around very slowly like a sloth. I am just not that active any more although I want to. Good thing is that baby #3 is growing well, in fact quite heavy for the baby's current gestational age, so I am pretty relieved and happy with that.

Due to my previous record with Dylan, I am currently seeing my Gynae fortnightly. Usually biweekly antenatal visits to Gynae happen after 36 weeks but I am asked to do this earlier because both my Gynae and I want to be extra careful in monitoring Baby #3's condition and growth progress until the baby arrives.

In a bid to welcome the arrival of Baby #3, I have washed and ironed (by batches over a few weekends) a mountain of baby clothes, napkins, bed sheets and other newborn stuff for Baby #3, which mostly are the pre-loved ones from Naomi. I still haven't packed my hospital bag and my husband has not started cleaning the baby cot either... So these are our homework for the coming weeks.

That's a quick update of us now.. Will update again when I have more time to type and more energy to battle fatigue.
