Slipknot 10th Anniversary Special Edition and DDG's Hot n' Heavy arrived!

Today is 16th of September. First and foremost, Happy Malaysia Day. Remember this post, here? Well, no one responded! Haha. Anyway, glad that the stuff I ordered came in good shape. At least the cd case for DDG is still in good shape, unlike the last time I ordered 3 DDG cds from Tower.com, the case were literally crushed. Cheers to HotTopic.com. It was a bit earlier than I expected. I thought I'll be receiving them next week or something. This is gonna be random post sharing shots of the stuff I got, and I hope to get you influenced as well. lol.

DDG's Hot n' Heavy spent around 12 days inside this box.

Pretty satisfied with the way stuff are being handled by HotTopic. Like I said earlier, Tower.com handled cds really badly. The packaging method they used at Towers are not meant for international postage. One thing for potential online shoppers, paying extra for your shipping will certainly ensure that your stuff will come in a piece, not pieces. I'll be certainly returning to HotTopic for more stuff, all because its kinda hard to get the stuff I want in Malaysia. Are there any one willing to bring in this kinda stuff? Metal and emo/scene music cds and merch. Oh yea, I get people asking me how much I spent for the Slipknot box set and DDG's Hot n' Heavy. It cost me around RM 400. You do the maths, converted from US dollars.

Final say, HotTopic means good deal.
