On 12 December, Shopee saw over 12 million orders across the region, surpassing all past records including the recent Shopee 11.11 Big Sale.

Supported by more than 450,000 brands and merchants, Shopee recorded 48 million visits as users shopped 60 million deals across all categories. Shopee’s in-app games were also highly popular like the Shopee Shake which was played 46 million times throughout the campaign.

In Malaysia, Health and Beauty, Home and Living, and Baby and Toys were the top three most popular categories. Leading brands, including Watsons, Nestle, Pet Pet, Realme and Petronas emerged as favourites amongst users.

Additionally, all tickets for Shopee’s Regional Brand Ambassador, BLACKPINK’s 2019 World Tour that went on sale were sold out in less than an hour, with 100 tickets snapped up within the first 30 seconds.

Malaysians grew up with Milo so it came as no surprise when the Nestle Milo Energy Cube became the top favourite, with raving reviews about its unique bite-size goodness. Additionally, people are getting more health conscious as they continue to maintain a balanced lifestyle. The Russell Taylors Air Fryer was a sought-after product to add to their kitchen essentials as a healthy alternative to fry food while another crowd-pleaser was the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 for wearers to track their fitness progress by recording their daily activities such as walking, sleep, heart rate and calories burnt. The old adage “an Apple a day keeps the doctor away” does ring true when iPhones became another attraction during the Shopee 12.12. Birthday Sale.

Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director, Shopee, said,

Shopee 12.12 Birthday Sale marks another significant milestone as we celebrate a year of exponential growth. This follows the success of Shopee 11.11 Big Sale in November and Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day in September. We are pleased to see the never ending support from our Shopee users, and to record around 16 million downloads in Malaysia is a huge achievement as we continue to be a leader in the e-commerce industry. A big thank you to our loyal users, sellers and partners for their continued support. It has been an exciting and fulfilling quarter for us as we surpass past records and set new benchmarks to reach next year. We look forward to having everyone join us in attaining even greater heights in 2019.”

Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What is the difference between natural and organic?

The Oil Garden Certified Organic Skincare range is natural and certified organic.

2. What certification does Oil Garden Certified Organic Skincare hold?
The Oil Garden Certified Organic Skincare range is certified by an independent body called COSMOS. This is shown on packaging and marketing materials.

WATSON and BAYER Shedding Light on Allergy Management

Many Malaysians are no strangers to allergies.

Photo Bayer

Nonetheless, a large number of them still do not understand why and what they are allergic to. Most allergies are neither life-threatening nor contagious; they can however be debilitating and adversely impact the patients’ quality of life. Serious and uncontrolled forms of allergies can cause unconsciousness and sometimes be fatal.

Watsons Malaysia and Bayer Co. (Malaysia) joint forces once again to co-organize a health public forum to raise the awareness of allergy and educate the community on optimal management of allergic diseases. Themed “Living with Allergies”, the forum aims to heighten the general public’s awareness of allergy-related problems.

“At Watsons, our motto of “Look Good, Feel Great” extends towards personal health which contributes to the overall well-being of a person. As such, we take every opportunity to provide reliable information, education and support to our customers to live an active and healthy lifestyle.

Allergies are a pervasive problem globally, more so in Malaysia, as different allergies are on the rise, from food allergies to environmental exposure, to pets and allergens. Hence, as a socially responsible brand, Watsons identified a strategic partnership with Bayer which shares a similar vision for its customers. The “Living with Allergies” public forum, happening this 10th Nov at The Royal Chulan Damansara will be a platform that is educational and beneficial to our consumers. It also provides an opportunity for us to interact and engage with them,” said Caryn Loh, Managing Director of Watsons Malaysia.

“The prevalence of allergies worldwide has spiked over the past decade; experts have equated the spread to an epidemic-like situation and slowdown of which is not in sight. Depending on the types of allergic disease as well as the age groups, it is estimated that 10-40% of the global population is affected by one or more allergic conditions and this figure is expected to grow in the face of rapid urbanization. In view of the prevalence, allergy is a major healthcare problem. The public needs to learn more about their allergies and take preventive measures to avoid an allergic reaction,” added Dr Kent Woo.

The upcoming public forum will also address the links among the allergic disease, psychological distress and stress. These associations have crucial implications for quality of life and disease management.

One of the speakers at the “Living with Allergies” Forum- Mr. Ko Teik Yen, highlighted that “allergies symptoms are common, very uncomfortable and can be embarrassing and irritating for patients due to the nasty appearance of the rash and the associated itch that can persists for a couple of years. Nevertheless, with appropriate training and practice, patients can be empowered to combat and minimize the detrimental effects of under-treated allergic condition on their quality of life.”
