“SEBELAS, SEBELAS!”. “ELEVEN, ELEVEN!” “PEET PEET PEET PEET PEET…”
You’re no doubt sick of those Shopee ads assaulting your senses on YouTube the past few days. There’s a good reason for that: 11th November is Single’s Day in China, and all China-owned commercial conglomerates are celebrating the day with sales.
Trivia: 11th November is also Remembrance Day and the birthdays of Stanley Tucci, Demi Moore, and Leonardo DiCaprio. So yeah, this Sunday is a good day as any to start shopping for cheap gaming and electronic goods.
Do pay attention to tomorrow as well since online stores like Lazada and Shopee have limited-time deals as well. We’ll be updating this news post with new deals within the weekend.
