What, no parade? Just another excuse to sit around staring at your cell/tablet/laptop/etc. Actually, 3 years ago when I was building out my new Chinese apartment, 11-11 sales were great for everything necessary. They even started early. I could have used a CA J flight to BKK, but looks like slim pickings.

I do want to register a complaint though, as here in Bangkok, the X-mas decorations went up right after Halloween. There should be a separation in these shopping "holidays" to allow for a suitable time period to enjoy the previous purchases before embarking on more. Wait, Shopee's sale is on now.
