I’m not the luckiest person when it comes to lucky draws, usually. I tend to look on in envy as other bloggers win prizes from lucky draws at events – boohoo! On Friday, however, I actually won a EuropAce 1.8L Electric Glass Kettle Jug at Lazada Singapore’s Blogger Bazaar! It costs S$79.90 on Lazada Singapore’s shopping platform! Also, we were each given some corporate gifts (as seen in the picture above) and even a Huawei fitness tracker, which is going for S$129 on Lazada! OMG! I already own the Fitbit, and I have the Health Promotion Board’s Steps Tracker, so this Huawei one might be one too many! I will still test it out though. So if you don’t mind a pre-loved tracker, feel free to let me know in the comments section below! :D
Lazada Group was launched in March 2012, and is now in 6 countries across Southeast Asia. It came to Singapore’s shores in May 2014, after launching in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam. In January 2014, they also launched a cross border sourcing hub in Hong Kong. Interesting fact: Lazada has 2 Technology Hubs – in Vietnam and Russia. With over 2 million products on their website, Lazada aims to take social shopping and mobile shopping by storm. I have personal friends who LOVE shopping on Lazada. Me? I’m still a newbie. :D
When shopping on Lazada, do note that there are some products with a free returns policy – these are usually fulfilled by Lazada. There are some others which aren’t, so do take note when you are making your purchase. Lazada Group also operates Lazada Express, a provider of logistics services, and HelloPay, an online payment platform that offers consumers a secure way of shopping online.
And here are the Lucky Draw prizes that Lazada Singapore so generously gave out during the Blogger Bazaar. The Grand Prize was even one scooter that costs some S$3,000?!!!
Congratulations to all winners yesterday! And especially to that blogger who won TWO prizes in the lucky draw. I don’t know how she was permitted to win two prizes while some other bloggers went home empty-handed, but hey, the management’s decision is final, right? :P :D ;)
Then there were so many booths to display products available on Lazada (currently, or soon). One thing I noted was the discounts Lazada Singapore offers. I truly fear for brick-and-mortar stores in Singapore. Business will get tougher and tougher, as more consumers shop online instead of visiting physical stores.
Even brands like SK-II are cheaper on Lazada… Staff assured me that the products are 100% authentic:
There are My Little Pony toys that are yet to be launched… and so much more…
I caught the recent Star Wars movie in Vietnan (ticket prices were at S$4 only. LOL) and found myself loving the BB-8 Droid. And there was one at the Lazada Singapore Bazaar!!! Apparently you can control it using your smartphone:
It’s not cheap (DUH) but it’s super cute, lights up, and rolls about just like in the movie! OMG. It’s rather small though. I’ll share more about its features (like the Holographic Communication) in a separate post so stay tuned! :)
Mark Your Calendars! On 26th January, that’s in 3 days’ time, Lazada Singapore will be hosting a MEGA SALE! There will be discounts of up to 88%, vouchers to be won when you spin the Hong Bao Wheel, Flash Sales and more! :D Ready? Steady? CLICK! :D
