It's no secret that Malaysians absolutely love online shopping, as evident by this story:


During the Movement Control Order (MCO), especially, there has been an upward trend when it comes to online shopping, as evident by this survey:


Don't worry, we're not judging. Who could resist a good 50 per cent, buy one free one deal, right?

However, when you're always on the look out for good deals on things you don't actually need, then we might have a problem.

If you can relate to these five points, congratulations; you're an online shopping addict:

#1 You can recite your credit card details by heart

Live view of you entering your card details.
And we mean the whole 16 digits, the CVV code and the expiry date on your credit card without even glancing at it. If only we could memorise our text books when we were in school like we memorised our credit card details, we would've been an astronaut by now.

#2 Your cart is full of items waiting to be checked out

The answer is always yes.
You're not checking them out because you're waiting for a sale - and your Sales Sense is tingling and you know it's coming.

#3 The abang courier is now your friend

A picture of you and the abang courier.
He texts you before coming over to drop off your parcels, he opens your door and places the parcel inside your house, he waters your plants, he plays with your cat, he stays for dinner...and now he's your adopted brother.

#4 You have more notifications on your shopping apps than your WhatsApp

Aww, I love you guys too *adds to cart*
It's OK if you don't have friends, but please know that Shopee and Zalora love you to bits! ❤️

#5 You know which shopping site has a sale going on

'It came to me in my dreams'.
Heck, sometimes even their own staff doesn't know about the deals you know! Bonus: you have a chat group on WhatsApp filled with fellow online shoppers who constantly update you about ongoing sales.

#6 Your motto is: 'Treat Yo' Self'

'More' is our favourite word.
Hey, you work so hard for your money, so it's only fair to pamper yourself with something nice and very expensive, right? Plus, it's time to buy yourself a present for your birthday - which is four months away!

#7 You have to hide some of your purchases from your other half

Sense has been made.
They don't need to know what you do with your money, amirite? *high five* Besides, what they can't see doesn't exist.
