taobao & ebay.

Usually, the items are either not available in SG or overpriced in brick and mortar shops.. Convenience is also a consideration.

I used to buy from iherb. But delivery unreliable. Parcel was lost twice. And delivery took a long time as long as almost a month despites what they claim on website. Gave up

I have terrible experience with eBay! Do not think I will consider trying that anymore.
What does taobao sell?

My cousin recommended me to shop at ASOS.com
My cousin said it is great and she is still ordering from there.
I just made my orders.. Just submitted. 5 pieces (my CNY shopping as I didnt have time to shop before CNY). Estimated delivery date to be 27feb. I will update on service when I get my orders.
They have such a big selection that I reckon that I will be shopping there every few months.

All kinds of stuff.. But I'm more interested in fashion and household products. Don't trust their electronics stuff.

So far my experience with eBay is quite ok. I always pay using paypal so if the items not delivered, just file a dispute and usually the seller will refund. Encounter a few cases item lost during delivery. Not sure is their problem or Singpost.

I shop at drugstore, book depository, Victoria secrets and vitacost more frequently. So far very good experiences. Except vs, sometimes the size is not the same. Eg top a you can wear s size but top b, s size is very big. Something like that. And some of their cutting are... Erm... I think I need to wear a bib to cover up.
