means take free of charge stuff?
what about cheong for discounts/sales/promotion?
That's budget mommy...
Cheapo to me is resell free of charge items or give free of charge items (blessed by others) under their own name..
free of charge stuff? Like go MAC take their mayo & bring home? LOL.
Chiong for sales are typical sporean women .
Isetan sales(2 times a yr), most of them are women what. All conquering cosmetics section. Hehe..
Cheapo maybe means 占人家的便宜~
I got a free coverlook voucher. Rang to ask/reconfirm details + telling them I'm using voucher but model is my girl ....... they cheated!
I went down found a dif scenario. Put up my experience on web n posters call me cheapo. The meaning of their postings - I stupid, cheapskate, no brain, went pester ppl for freebies (I didnt. I rang before went down with the so call complimentary voucher - no min purchase)
That was the 1st x a complimentary voucher didnt give me what they promised. I know a lot of things in Spore r free with a catch. To avoid misunderstand n waste my time, I rang to check. They even said the person who answered my enquires was a part-time so meaning whatever she committed was wrong. Like that also can. Obviousy they at fault for misinterpretation/dishonest and still push blame to others.
Actually this matter I'm not that hurt already cos other mummy forumers said being cheapo is good. We save $$, make use of discount n sales, we dont behaved like spolit brats thinking $$ is endless n rather pay more for the same svc/item when a discount is possible.
CP, i think that's their GIMMICKS!!! Similar to many beauty, slimming spa etc.. Over the phone I stressed that we dont't like to have those long sales talk and the CSO promised ok.. On the actual day, I walking out after the trail, one sales consultant hold me back.. I explaint what I was promised, she ask me to point out who that paz. I replied, it's their staff, they sure have records who calld who.. This sales consultant is really rude says to enjoy the free treatment, we must die die "tolerate" the sales talk.. I reply that's not only sales talks but also hard selling and suanning too!! Fyi this spa outlet is so BIG at Orchard Takashimaya !!
I have experienced another slimming outlet (@ Far East) who suan me so much "your husband can tahan your wight and figure meh? you not scared he do something outside ......" Wahhhhhhhhh!!!!
All such nonsense companies are just too DESPERATE for sales!!!
Agreed with the above definition..
In my club, Cheapo means Stingy.
Another incident was those studio photograhy type.... same, told me 1hr, end up I was there from 7pm till 10+... same thing, aiya, you got no credit card meh????
As if use credit card , after that no need pay bank back.....
After this, it's a NO NO NO.... and they still won't give up... they keep calling you, ask you why so silly??? Free one, why dont want????
All the sales gimmicks!!!
that's what I thot ........ in my case, I considered cheapo meh?
ppl printed complimentary n refused to honour when I turned up = cheat. Stingy .... refused to take their package call stingy? Take advantage of ppl - cfm I didnt. They did - wasted my precious time!
a cheap person is some1 who will rush to get anything free, irregardless of rain or shine. Means long Q, out of the way will also go and grab.
This kind of person got a common behaviour, take 1 freebie not enough, will ask or beg for more, otherwise, re-Q to get more.
Not sure my another thinking of CHEAPO fits here?
CHEAPO = whinning and crying for sympathy, say so poor, people dont like him/her, so and so abuse him/her so to get the listener to sympathise and give freely.. Such people are disgusting!! Cry and cry, say and say when all not true at all!!! Untruthful acts to gain friendships and material stuff is the upmost CHEAPO!!! Sickening! Equivalent to CHEATS!! No integrity at all hence CHEAPO!!!
What is Angelman Syndrome?
Angelman syndrome is a genetic disorder that causes developmental delay and neurological problems. Children having "flat heads, jerky movements, protruding tongues, and bouts of laughter." Infants with Angelman syndrome appear normal at birth, but often have feeding problems in the first months of life and exhibit noticeable developmental delays by 6 to 12 months. Seizures often begin between 2 and 3 years of age. Speech impairment is pronounced, with little to no use of words. Individuals with this syndrome often display hyperactivity, small head size, sleep disorders, and movement and balance disorders that can cause severe functional deficits. Angelman syndrome results from absence of a functional copy of the UBE3A gene (chromosome 15) inherited from the mother.
Is there any treatment?
There is no specific therapy for Angelman syndrome. Medical therapy for seizures is usually necessary. Physical and occupational therapies, communication therapy, and behavioral therapies are important in allowing individuals with Angelman syndrome to reach their maximum developmental potential.
What is the prognosis?
Most individuals with Angelman syndrome will have severe developmental delays, speech limitations, and motor difficulties. However, individuals with Angelman syndrome can have normal life spans and generally do not show developmental regression as they age.
thanks for the info, cp (so used to calling you that ) now i know, you are really a great great mum.....
