Probably just me, but I actually enjoy spending on stocks and UTs and the like, and so I find them worth my money and time. I have a goal to be financially free the moment I graduated and I have not lost sight of it. (Didn't have a time frame for that though, although things are starting to crystallize now). The adrenaline rush when I get a stock at the price I want or buy into a good UT to average down prices probably is the same as when someone buys a physical item like a bag or a car. Maybe that's why I am in my current job! That aside, your question made think deeper and I would say I do spend on my hobbies as well. Once in a while I also ensure my family and loved ones can have a good meal during occasions like birthdays. Of course I would ensure that I don't break the bank doing so. It's all about budget, planning and control.

I would prefer simplygo. The amount of points required to redeem even one free old chang kee curry puff is alot. I take bus and mrt everyday, redeem 1 curry puff a month for 800 points, does not seem worth to me. I rather collect cashback and with the current simplygo promos, can earn back more than 1 curry puff worth.

To shop at Taobao, the most important thing is to be able to find the things you need. If you want to be able to browse and find the items yourself, www.taobaotranslate.com can help you find items you want. There are also guides there that can help you set up Taobao account, shipping from Taobao etc

Use Taobao Translate search to translate your item terms instead of Google translate, I find it more accurate, since the most important part of shopping at Taobao is to find the items you want. Or if you need guides to buy from Taobao from set up a Taobao account to handling shipping and communicating with sellers, you can also find words to copy paste from there. Very convenient.

I still prefer Youtrip, for the rates and also the range of currencies they cover. For example, I was just in Laos and while the local money changer did not accept SGD, Youtrip actually supports Laotian kip. I also used Youtrip on my Japan trip, and found rates to be comparable to what I could get from the Raffles Place money changers. This would probably apply even for shopping in foreign currencies. Another big plus - when I was out of JPY for a transaction, it converted my SGD to JPY. Which also means, no small change that I need to change back to SGD when I get back! For me, that's a nice plus since I typically don't like to change it back to local currency. I don't mind using it as a one-way wallet, because I use Youtrip as an EZ-Link card as well for my local commute!

Yes I did. With the free delivery only for Redmart, I wouldn't go for it. It's possible to hit free delivery in any case, if you purchase beyond a certain amount. And that's what I use online groceries for - to buy toiletries in bulk such that I can hit the free shipping and not have to lug 60 toilets rolls home. My mum does ask me if I'm preparing for the war though, when she sees the large stash of toilet rolls in the store room 😂
