My Favourite Online Stores to Shop From



Most of us are no stranger to online shopping... After all, online shopping here in Malaysia is also getting much more easier, more reliable and the variety seems to be expanding every year. 



It is not just the convenience that makes it fun, and I really do not know about you but personally for me, I do get pretty excited when receiving that package at the office or at home when it has arrived. It is after all like receiving a present from yourself (which is just as fun as it sounds).. 



So why would you want to shop online?...

Here are 6 good reasons why you should shop online...





No crowds. Don't you feel so clastrophobic or stressed when younare one in the crowds of shoppers queueing to pay at the cashier counter or so.... and also the hassle of looking for a parking spot - like in Mid Valley on weekends... All of these problems are avoided when you shop online.

Convenience. You comfortably shop at midnight while in your undies, pajamas or old clothing... 

Most of these online stores also allows exchanges and returns if it is not up to your expectations, giving you a worry free shopping experience....

Better prices. You can buy products at much better prices because these products will come direct from the manufacturer or seller without involving middlemen.... and, it is just so easy to compare prices and find a better deal.... 

Many online sites offer promo codes, discount coupons and rebates, as well. Not only are prices better, but you can save on tax as well, since online shops are only required to collect a sales tax if they have a physical location in your state....

No pressure. Many times when we're out shopping, we always buy things we don't really need, just because the sales girl or man use their selling skills to pressure us to make these purchases... 

Better variety. The variety of things to shop online can be pretty astounding amazing. 

You can find almost any brand or item you're looking for and even more.... 

You can also treat yourself to the latest international fashion styles from other parts of the state, country, or even world instead of being limited to your own location...

Send gifts to your friends or love ones easily. Sending gifts to your special someone, or relatives and friends is now just easy peasy... no matter where they are.... They will gift wrap, pack it and send it for you! Now, there is no need to make distance an excuse for not sending a gift on those special occasion...

Price comparisons. One of the things I love to do when shopping online wpuld be to compare check out the products I want to purchase... as well as reviews...

Well, we have done 6 reasons why you should shop online... what about where to shop..

My favourite online stores to shop hands down would have to be ZALORA, Lazada and Shopee


When shopping for Fashion, Beauty
Website: www.zalora.com.my

ZALORA is the leading name in online fashion shopping, carrying an ever-expanding line of local and international brands tailored for consumers in the region. With one of the widest selection of fashion apparel, you can definitely find to suit your taste and needs from all those skirts to suits, sneakers to undies, sports attire to time pieces, and so much more...

ZALORA shoppers can also shop according to the latest trends that are dominating the fashion runway, both homegrown and leading international brands, with trend-focused edits such as floral fever, nudes and neutrals as well as off-duty denim and athleisure spotlight. 

Shoppers can find outfits from top international and local brands, like Nike, Adidas, Oasis, Warehouse, Rizalman, Jovian, Ann Summers, Armani Exchange and Coach....

You can also find outfits on discounts and bargains all year round. Their items on sale, new arrivals, and trend-specific wares are labeled on the top bar, as are the general categories like clothing, accessories, watches, bags, beauty, and brands. 


Zalora offers free local shipping for orders over RM75, and there’s also a ‘fast shipping’ option. For this ‘flash’ request, they try to send items out on the same day they were ordered. Should you need to return or exchange anything, they have a 30-days free returns policy.

Bonus: use a Zalora promo code to save even more during your online retail therapy!



When shopping for Electronics, TV and Home appliances, Health and Beauty, Babies and Toys, Groceries and Pets, Fashion, Sports and Travel, Automotive and Motorcycles

When it comes to every other thing from clothing to things you need at home, gadgets, phone casings, toys, even pet food, groceries, books, bags and luggages and things in general... Lazada and Shopee would be my choice... I cannot choose one among the two; so its both!!!


Website: www.lazada.com.my

Lazada is said to be the largest e-commerce operator in Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines backed, based on average monthly web visits...

Shoppers can naturally find products from almost any well-known tech brand here – Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Vivo, Canon, HTC, Nokia, and so on to name a few. They offer discounts on almost all their products – even on those that are brand new....

One of the best time shopping at Lazada is their ‘Flash Sale’ on the left side of the page (the fire icon), where items go for ridiculously low prices that you have to see to believe...



Website: shopee.com.my

Shopee is also another great website which I love to head to to look for the various categories including health and beauty, babies and toys, and even sports and travel... as well as a big contender to Lazada... 

Shopee also launched their Shopee Coin to help shoppers save more by collecting coins.

Some of the sellers in Shopee can even offer Wholesale Discounts.

Bonus: use a Shopee promo code to save even more during your online retail therapy!



Personally, I just love comparing something I want to buy from both sites... because I can really save a lot more money buying it here on the online store then buying things at a physical store...!! 

For example...I tend to buy my daily disposable contact lenses either at Lazada or Shopee.. they sell it so much more affordable here... 30-50% cheaper and I get my power easily too (where as when at most shops I have to order and wait to come back again for my power which is a bit on the high side..) !!!
