Was invited to join the launching of MINEX Jewellery 100% Trade-in last Saturday. It was too good to resist that I actually skipped my class for 1 and a half hour hehehe… Also invited some bloggers along but too bad many couldn’t go because it was too last minute.
Goodie bags were given to each of us. Inside, there’s the “ring“.
While waiting for other guests to arrive, we were given some previews. Lousy photos, not easy to take pictures with this kind of lighting too. Summore, sat at the third row, what to do? Then the huge ass cameras were all in front with all the speedlights. Most of my photos have speedlights sprouting out just like mushrooms hahaha… Majority of the bloggers with DSLRs managed to sit in front but not me, nevermind about that, I don’t really care.
Left: The man behind Minex Jewellery, Benjamin Wung. He’s only 25 years old! It got most of us shocked when we had our private Q&A session with him after the launch, more about it later.
Right: After that, three models came out and dance to the music “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”. It’s very entertaining.
Final pose after the dance.
More jewellery on show after that. Noticed many familiar faces. Always see some of these models in actions in many events in Kuching.
More, more, more… Besides walking on the stage, the models also came down and walked around the ballroom so that those sitting behind can have a look at the jewellery.
Finally all on stage.
Clap, clap, clap…
POP! Confetti everywhere. It was so loud that most of us got a shock. ;p
After the event, we were asked to go over to Senso to have a private Q&A session with Benjamin. We were caught with surprise, didn’t expect that there would be such session and I got nothing to ask at all! Not prepared at all. 😛 Luckily Cyril(or is it Edwin?) started the ball rolling. Learnt a lot from the man himself and he’s a certified gemologist and there’s only 3 in Kuching, or is it Sarawak? I didn’t really pay attention ;p Before the session, a group photo with him is a must. I’m sure many of you are inspired by him. He’s so young and he’s so successful.
Wondering how the 100% trade-in system works?
Let’s say, you bought a jewellery that cost you RM1000, then after a while, you decided to buy a new one/upgrade to a nicer one which costs RM2000. Then just bring back the jewellery you bought and trade it in without lossing the value. You will get back RM1000 and then you top up another RM1000. There you go! You are now the proud owner of the RM2000 jewellery. Get the drift?
For example, if you aim to own a 1-carat diamond, you cannot afford it but can afford a small one with good quality of course. Just buy the small one will do. Then when you think you are ready to upgrade, just bring the small diamond back and trade it in without losing the value and top up to get the bigger one. You will be assured that you will get good quality diamond no matter how big or small it is at Minex. The diamonds are carefully inspected by Benjamin himself and the other colleague of his(I forgot her name ;p) before putting it for retail in Minex.
May your dream come true 🙂
Of course, thanks to Ron from TrueCard for inviting us 🙂
