The short answer is “no.” Then, from what country are they? Well, now you have to watch the video. :=) I was going to title this video “The TRUTH about Lazada and Shopee!” But I thought that might be a little too “Clickbait-ish” LOL! Thanks for watching.

  1. Sir, it’s always a pleasure for us, your global audience, to dial in & be assured of upbeat, positive slices of life. Keep it up!
    Tip: don’t forget to write on a Post It note where you hide your new hard drive cover cash supply. You might even find it again one day…

  2. That camera works well for your “Studio” videos. The mic works well also. Sadly, some people were not taught “If you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all”. Hope You and Ate Gloria are healthy and staying safe out there.

  3. Thank you for the shout out, Bud! The Dances agree that the name is pretty cool.🕺💃👌
    Mick and I enjoy watching the your vlogs and always look forward to the next adventure. Enjoy your online shopping and stay safe! Regards to Gloria! ❤️

  4. Lazada has been Chinese owned for the last 4 years – you did not read enough on Wiki ” it is currently owned by the Alibaba Group after its acquisition in 2016″

  5. Bud you need to READ the detail if you did you would have read on Wikipedia that although Lazada was founded in Singapore but was later purchased by Alibaba which is Chinese. Shopee on the other hand is owned by Tencent which is a Chinese owned tech giant. The both have their offices based in Singapore but both are Chinese owned and controlled don’t be fooled by them trying to misdirect people from thinking they are from Singapore they are both very much Chinese. This does not mean all of the sellers on these platforms are from China but the platforms themselves are very much Chinese

  6. Lazada is owned by Alibaba from China and Shoppe is owned by SEA Group from Singapore. In fact you are partially right as Lazada originally is a Singapore company bought by Alibaba group in 2016.

  7. Hey bud my friend, love your sense of humor and your laid back attitude. I can’t wait until I get back to the Philippines to marry my Filipina fiancée and settle down there. Your content is awesome. Please stay safe and healthy and God bless you and your family always my friend.😊 😊 😊 ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

  8. Most Desktop computers have a larger HD and will not fit in that case. They do make cases for the larger size but the empty box you have is for laptop hard drives.

  9. looks good and sound ok to me Bud good there Singapore company’s but yes most parts i get made in China but you know CE on things are made in China to China export it says No the desktop hardrives wont fit there 3 and half inches the 2 and half will fit only Bud as you said laptop ones will fit but you find the desktop wont fit ok
