One of the final items that we were looking for was baby cot. We were rather indecisive about this despite having went through few shops including Seng SKH Furniture Shop and BabyLand (in SS2). After searching and searching again, while googling about “baby cot petaling jaya” I bumped into Baby Jaya website. Given that it is located in Damansara Utama, we decided to pay a visit to the store.
While on our way to the shop last Sunday, we actually stopped by also at Twins Baby located not too far from Baby Jaya. We were entertained by a foreign worker at Twins Baby and simple explanation was given. A 10% discount was also given and a RM30 delivery fee (inclusive of installation) was quoted.
Finally, we dropped by at Baby Jaya. Well, it is located at a place where we always passed by but never really take notice. When we were there, we realized that they were having year-end sales. There were few customers, and the lady assistant (guess also the owner) was explaining to them. The items there range from small items such as clothing to big items such as baby cot and strollers. I noticed that most of the items carry the BabyLove brand.
Hubby then queried about baby cots and mattress. I would definitely say that the lady gave a better explanation than the worker at Twins Baby – instead of giving a one sided view about latex mattress, she told us that it is subjective and depending on preference. After about 30 minutes, we actually decided on the baby cot set – which include latex mattress and 7-in-1 bedding set – worth RM1,257.80. Due to the sales, the price is now RM853, which is about 30% discount. This was much cheaper than the comparable set quoted in Twins Baby. However, the delivery charge here is much higher – which is RM80. The lady then told hubby to DIY fix the cot himself – she even taught hubby how to do it.
Nevertheless, we could not make the purchase last Sunday because the credit card machine was down – and we thought we could accumulate more points on my Maybankard Manchester United Visa Card– given the winning match over Aston Villa. So, at the end, we only got the small item – Anti-Slip Bath Bed – which original cost is RM24.90. There was a 20% off and the item went for RM19.92.
After returning home, we were still determined to return to Baby Jaya. And, so yesterday after our visit to Dr Fatima’s clinic, we returned to the stall. It was a drizzling day and so, when we were there, we were the only customer and given all the attention. We wanted to get another bedding set – and the lady told us that she could give us the same price of RM155 (instead of its original RM259.80). And, so we got with it. The total cost come to RM1008, and the lady gave us a RM8 off – so, total payment went to RM1000. She said that the RM8 off was for us having to come over twice. There is a five year warranty on the latex mattress, which starts from the day we use it – where we need to send the warranty card ourselves to Bumble Bee or through Baby Jaya We took the items home – with her husband helping us carry the cot into our car (cash on delivery).
Overall, we are satisfied with the service provided by Baby Jaya. The lady is also able to give good advice – such as whether to wash the bedding sets and so forth. However, not too sure if some of the items there are old, or are they
Back at home, hubby has finally fixed the baby cot within an hour. Well, finally our baby has a crib.
Looking at Baby Jaya Website; supposedly we get the items separately
Baby cot = RM559.20
Bumble bee latex mattress 48” x 24” x 3” = RM 319.20
Bumble bee 7-pieces crib set (2 sets) about = RM342 x2 = RM684
Total cost = RM1,562.40, while we paid only RM1,000. It is about 50% savings on the purchase. Sadly, Manchester United lost the match to Norwich this morning, so, we did not manage to collect the five times Treatpoints.
