IKEA: Tertial Light

My wife and me went for jalan jalan yesterday nite. We went to Ikea. There was no plan to buy anything actually. But being a shopaholic, I ended up with something. I bought a flexible table light, Tertial. I dunno what brand it is ler but Swedish made lo.  Why did I bought it? Well, it was retailing around RM80-90 last year. It s was on offer for RM 36.90. Apa lagi? Tapau la!! But no bulbs were provided. I had to buy. Now bulbs are not cheap. The bulbs are ‘energy-safe’ type, 11w. Now the best story of nite was..When I got home, I got the thing set up. Unfortunately, the bulb doesnt fit at all! Damn, they placed the wrong bulb model beside the light. *Ikea, u guys got to buck up lar* So today, I had to head over to Ikea and had it changed. But then again..The light is yellow. Not my cup of tea.




Wrong bulb. The correct version should be E27.
