Q: How much you order on 11/11 and 12/12?

Let's have general statistics to see who how much have ordered on 11/11 and how much is going to order on 12/12. I have personally spent only 1.5k on 11/11. But when my Chinese friends heard me talking about this amount they laughed and said it's a too small value for that particular day. Well, but I think I spent a lot.

 

Now my friends are discussing they shopping plans for tomorrow (12/12). I'm out from the discussion this time, simply don't wanna spend money. 

 

Just wanted to ask everybody here to share their experience on this. Anything you would like to share, just to help to have a general picture of the situation :D

I just bought my usual daily bottle of Scotch.

Wait... was 11 11 a friday? If it was, I most likely bought 2 packets of cheese and onion crisps. I need to pack up with absorbants for my 2 bottle Saturdays.

What did you buy OP? New strings for your guitar Smile

- Only in China. The reaction makes you feel insecure, and it makes me feel glad I'm not Chinese.

Never forget: Any talk about money in China is ALWAYS a pissing contest. One-upmanship at its purest.

Admin, now this is a decent try. 

 

I'm not a mindless zombie. There was an article about Americans receiving orders from China that they never ordered, you see, that's how they prop up their numbers
