Hi MyBaby,
Many parents have been buying direct from http://www.dangdang.com, this is the largest online bookshop in China with a huge variety of Chinese books. Any book that you want can be found there and they offer big discounts which bookshops do not offer. Even including shipping, books from dangdang are very cheap compared to Maha Yuyi.

http://buy4u.peeka.sg/ is a service that helps us order and ship from http://www.dangdang.com or www.taobao.com.

倪匡 admitted that he is a huge fan of 金庸 who has a superb command of the Chinese language. Any student who can finish reading all of the 金庸 novels will not need to spend time learning Chinese :wink:

Hi Tamarind,

Heard that 天龙八部中有一部分是倪匡代写的 when 金庸漫游欧洲. :smile:

If I do not remember wrongly, the HCL Secondray 4B Text Book does have a passage about 江南六怪 from 《射鵰英雄傳》。

Tks Tamarind for the info. So peeka is like a "middle man"? In that case, does it mean it is better to buy direct from dangdang instead? I am still not comfortable with ordering online from other countries.

Just finished 老猫. There was an unexpected twist to the ending.

Now reading 不死药. First 10 pages already got hooked. The writer is very skilled.

Hi Mybaby,
I ordered some books from Peeka before instead of DangDang.
Peeka is a Singapore Taobao agent that helps to purchase items from Taobao and ship it to SG for us. Not trying to advertise for them but i think they offered the lowest shipping rate compared with other agents . I think its safer to order with an agent , at least should there be any problem with your item , an agent will be responsible for it :)
I find that Peeka service is pretty efficient, do give it a try.
