11.11 is either going to be the day where you and your friends celebrate how great it is to be single or it's gonna be the day you blow your salary on a number of deals and promotions up on various online shopping sites. In the past, 11.11 or Singles' Day was celebrated in China to celebrate... well, singles. It started in 1993 by students of Nanjing University. But now, Singles' Day is a day where you essentially treat yourself and buy the things you've always wanted to have! More facts on 11.11 can be read here. So, if you're wondering what and where to spend your hard-earned money on, read on to find out! Lazada In case you already didn't know about it, Lazada is really hyping up the 11.11 sale by having Korean heartthrob and actor Lee Min Ho as its regional brand ambassador.

The ad also features Wang Wei Liang who played Lobang in Ah Boys To Men. https://youtu.be/DDj35-Q0zS0 Instead of just having a big sale on 11.11 itself, Shopee is already counting down to the big day by giving customers loads of sweet deals from 21 October to 11 November. Just like what Lazada is already doing, FYI. You can even check out the calendar event right here to see what's in store over the next few days.
