August is a special month for Singaporeans because it is marks the nation’s 50th year of independence. And it also happens to be a month full of sales where one can snap up irresistible bargains. I am so broke this August no thanks to all the shopping. Firstly, I had decided to learn how to shop from Taobao.com on my own and I’m so addicted to the site because you can almost find everything on it at low prices. In fact, I’m already on my 3rd shipment now.
