宅 means home. I believe it is now known as staying at home.
I actually enjoy staying at home online shopping. Yet sad to say most of my money goes to shipping from oversea which I find it really wasteful. I hardly shop from Singapore because they really really sucks. On the other hand, I rather envy’s Taiwan’s way of online shopping. You can collect your stuff at your nearby “7-11” alike store. And you can shop from apparels to food. Can you believe it?
I feel the attitude of blog owners in Taiwan is also very different from those in Singapore. Blog owners in Taiwan can make this their full-time profession while it is only a part-time quick money channel for a Singaporean. “Quick” maybe not so too. Since they can only invest part-time in their blogs, they definitely cannot provide the best or at least the most unique stuff for you. So what are their unique selling point(s)? Design? They are selling an exact duplicate of what others are and in a lesser range some more. Cheap? Definitely no. They just want to earn money.
Like what I’ve remembered from today’s class: Singaporeans are only concern if they can earn more money or gain social status. The rest are not very important to them. Compare to what I’ve always heard in Jackie Wu’s interviews with Taiwan entrepreneurs “我是用心来做的。一天花 XX小时在生意上。”, at least i feel more 爽 and interested in shopping with them than leisure click and browse.
