With Chinese New Year just around the corner, some of you singletons may have started plotting your excuses to avoid house visiting.
Why avoid house visiting, you may ask?
Well, for one thing is to escape from being bombarded with questions like “Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?”, “When are you getting married ah boy/girl?” or “Still single meh?. Aiyo..must jia you.” (step up your game in other words).
These days, everything is a click away where you can buy almost anything online – from basic necessities like goods, food, clothes to anything you can purchase in the mall. You name it, the Internet got it!
And apparently, you can now rent a boyfriend or a girlfriend online for Chinese New Year.
This year, Lazada, the #1 online shopping platform which offers a wide range of products in categories is cooking a little something that might just help you solve the inevitable. The largest e-commerce company in Southeast Asia recently teases a short clip on its social media pages and seem to be really serious about it!
A collection of tweets from consumers can be seen who jokingly (or maybe not) tweeted them whether a date-for-hire services are obtainable through the site.
Towards the end, one can see a Chinese New Year theme animation which is believed to be an upcoming campaign in conjunction with the festival.
Perhaps inspired by China that started the whole date-for-hire trend?
Witness the entertaining short teaser below:
