    Hahahahaha ... but, this is not only in China ... e.g. Groupon.com is actually an US company but only recently arrived in China ... I would like to think of it as an alternative of wholesale supermarkets like Aldi ... we are actually worried that if we are used to such level of cost, we cannot easily adjust when we go back to Sydney, heehee ...

    Hahahahaha ... we mainly look for "cheap eats", and anything that looks unbelievably cheap are considered, however, most "cheap eats" are not too conveniently located and we have to skip them ...

    What you said is likely ... like when people seem to buy more un-usable things from online purchase than actual shopping ... because it is now even cheaper ...
