1.When it happened
I would like to describe a joyful shopping online experience which happened on last Singles Day, or 11/11—the biggest annual shopping holiday that takes place on November 11th. It was originally meant for people who wanted to celebrate being single. Though, much like Black Friday, it has turned into more of a retail event.

2.What you bought
I bought lots of things because you know, on Singles Day, products are much cheaper, during the 24-hour period, Alibaba offered huge discounts across its e-commerce sites such as T-mall. So I bought lots of necessities like shampoo, tissue, thermos and so on, also some make-up, clothes and shoes. The most important thing I bought last Double 11 was a kindle.

3.Why you bought it
I bought those items because the discount was attractive, so we accumulated things we need in the online shopping cart and bought them at lower price on Singles Day. Second, it has become a popular holiday and buying something is how we celebrate it. Third, we bought these of course because we need them.

4.And explain why you think it was a good experience
As I mentioned, it was a good experience is because I bought those products at much lower price and I bought all items I wanted, you know, within several seconds, some products would be sold out. To my surprise, my shopping arrived in 4 days which was really fast because after Double 11, delivery companies would be busy and goods usually spent more than 10 days to arrive. The most exciting thing was that I got a pair of shoes for free coz I was chosen to be a lucky costumer. What a good shopping experience!

What are the advantages and disadvantages of online shopping?
There are some advantages of online shopping, and that’s why it is gaining popularity among people all over the world. For example, it is convenient to buy things online, without a step out of the room, you can get things you want. Also, the delivery is fast. But of course there can be some drawbacks, like you cannot try on clothes and if you don't like them, you have to return them.Besides, the package may arrive when you are out.
Do you think it is safe to shop online?
I wouldn’t say it is definitely safe to shop online, because there are examples of scam mailings, claiming they are staff in an online shop and you get an award for buying things from them, luring you to give your credit card account or something like that. But I think it will become safer and safer with people’s awareness raised and online shopping platform impose some control on protecting customers’ information.
Do you think government should impose more control on online shopping?
Well, I think it is necessary for government to impose a strict censorship onprocess and rules of online shopping. I don’ mean that government should control the price of all products shown on the online shopping website, I mean, they should have strict rules on how the website works to reduce scams.
