5 Reasons to start shopping online from AliExpress

1. It is cheaper

Most of the items are free shipping first of all and it is up to 50% cheaper than in the market.

Just imagine, buying at the rate of 50% cheaper, you can either buy more clothes or save your money.

2. More options

It is so embarrassing to come across someone wearing the same shirt like yours. Of course, it is not your fault but due to the lack of options to choose from and a limited number of shops.

Thus, landing up buying the same shirt from the same shop.

You don’t have to go through that anymore, Online shopping from Aliexpress.com has more than a million shops and items. Be it for your baby child, or for yourself, or for your parents and no matter the quality and sizes, you can get it there.

3. Need not have to Bargain

It is well and good if the seller gives you the discount when you ask for the first time, or for the second time. But if they deny it, it’s embarrassing first of all and I am sure you don’t like the look they give it to you.

Well, you don’t have to bargain at all in online sites, the rates of the items are already at wholesale or they directly sell right from the factory.

4. It’s Convenient

How convenient and easy it is to shop right from your smartphone or computer with your finger clicking on the buy button.

Don’t have to go door to door in search of a shirt, or show the frustration over the weather for stopping you from shopping.

Being an online shopper, I always feel my shop is right inside my pocket and with me wherever I go. It is so convenient and moreover, I can save time to spend with my family.

5. Good communication with sellers

It is annoying when the shop keeper does not respond to you when you ask the price or ask anything related to the product. But you don’t have to go through that while shopping online.

You can ask anything and the seller always has the answer for you as soon as they receive the message in a polite way and fulfilling all the answer that you are looking for.

Why WeChat is more popular than WhatsApp in Bhutan?

Why WeChat is more popular than WhatsApp in Bhutan

I hate it when someone asks me to send it over WeChat. And even more, hate, when they react sarcastically when I say I don’t use WeChat. They kinda take it as a backward person for not using WeChat. So I was left with no options rather use it, as even officials works are done in WeChat.

There are other similar apps, like WhatsApp, but why WeChat?

This question was with me for last few months and was researching on it. And below are what I have found.

1. Easy User Interface

The User Interface of WeChat is very simple. Even an uneducated can figure out. The features are all labeled with the images so that those who cannot read can use it by looking at the pictures.

No wonder, even an uneducated farmers are in a queue to activate 3G / 4G.

2. Works in slow network

Man, that’s the best part. Especially, in Bhutan where the networks are poor.

WeChat works well even in 2G connection, so you don’t have to be in 3G area to use WeChat. You can use whether you stay in remote areas of Bhutan, on the mountains and in the deep forest.

3. Use lesser Data packages

If you have been using WeChat for some time, you must have already noticed, the data usage is low. It consumes extremely low data packages, so you don’t have to recharge your Data plan again and again.

4. Moments

Who does not like Facebook’s features?

Some of the features of Facebook like uploading images, updating status, like and commenting the updated status, WeChat has is too. And it is called Moments. These extra features add a reason for someone to use it.

Just like in Facebook, you can keep track on what your friends and family are up to.

5. Cheaper than text message and voice call

How much does it cost to send a text message and make a voice call?

Expensive than in WeChat right? So by using WeChat, you can make a huge saving by using the free messages and voice messages.

6. Leave voice message

In Bhutan, there are no facilities to leave a voice message like in other countries. But WeChat is a great help. If the other side isn’t available to pick up your call, you can leave a voice message.


You have read all the advantages but I am not forcing you to use it. And it is purely my suggestion and my feelings. So if anything happened by using WeChat, it is not my responsibility for it. You take care of all your decisions.

So happy WeChatting!

The untold story of chewing Betel Nuts (Doma Khamtog)

The untold story of chewing Betel Nuts (Doma Khamtog)

Do you chew Betel Nuts and lime, wrapped with a Betel Leaf?

If you are from South East Asian like me, then probably you must be. Especially in a country like Bhutan, chewing Betel Nuts, commonly known as Doma Khamtog is very much popular.

Anyway, this isn’t my point today.

As usual, I was chit chatting and sharing Doma Khamtog with my friends after lunch. And suddenly, one of my friends asked, do you know the story about chewing Doma Khamtog?

“Is there even a story on Betel Nuts?” I asked.

“Yes there is,” he said.

And the story he narrated shocked me and I have made up my mind that I am quitting from today. (Well hopefully though, I am so addicted to it).

The story goes like this.

“Long time ago, we use to eat human flesh. It was in the era when evils and demons have ruled and influenced us. In the hunt of human flesh, humans have slaughtered each other and they did not even spare their own children.

The God pitied upon watching us. And he decided to come down on earth with a solution.

Guess what was the solution? It was chewing betel nuts and leaf with a lime.

Betel Nuts to replace Bones.

Betel Leaf to replace flesh and skin.

And lime as a fat of the human body.

Upon chewing all of it together, the red juice is formed and it was to replace the blood. Thus the human slaughter was stopped.” He said.

Are you kidding me? Have I been eating human flesh replacements all the time?

I am not sure, what should I call it? A bad day as I enjoy chewing Doma Khamtog or is it a good day as I can take care of my health.

Yes, that’s right, chewing Betel nuts has been the major cause for oral Cancer in south east Asia. So if you are out there, consuming heavily just like me, you are at the right time to STOP.

Keep in mind that, whenever you chew Doma, you are doing it to calm your desire to eat human flesh.

Stay safe, take good care of your health and no more Chewing Betel Nuts/ Doma Khamtog.
