How Online Groceries...

It’s been a long hectic week and just when you’re ready to sit down and relax, you realize that you’re in desperate need of a trip to the grocery store. Unfortunately most of us hate going to the grocery store. Fighting for parking, dealing with the crowds, and waiting in line at checkout counter make us want to avoid the supermarket. Thankfully, we live in the future, and we can have groceries deliver to us instead of having to go get them. Here are three ways that grocery shopping online can save you time and money and reduce your carbon footprint.

1. Saves fuel – Doing your grocery shopping online avoids the need for a trip to the store. Besides, by allowing a delivery truck to bring your groceries home reduces your impact on the environment.

2. More Products Are Available Online – There are more products available online than in the retail stores. Store shelves is limited and can’t stock as much as online store can offer. In addition, there are more detailed product information available to you when buying groceries online.

3. Save money – Selecting your groceries from the comfort of your kitchen table reduces the risk of impulse buying.You can order your groceries when you are relaxed and at a time which suits you.

 

My first week...

As you may know, I’m currently doing my internship at Agogo Asia, which is an e-commerce company based in Kuching till July 2018. My internship started on February 5, which means my first week is already over! On my first week here, I felt like a dried-up sponge being dip in water for the first time except the water was full of information.

First week in, there were definitely few things that I have learned. Firstly, being clueless is completely normal. The courses that you took in college sometimes do not show you the harsh reality of life. Hence this is where the role of internship sneaks in. You’ll learn more if you are not afraid to admit you don’t know something and ask for help.

The next important lesson I learned was that you should not be afraid to challenge yourself to try new things. This is the time where you discover your strengths and weaknesses. So continue to be curious and expect the unexpected.

Lastly, I learned to take every single task as an opportunity for growth. Even in the smallest tasks that you’re given, put in your best and honest effort because you’ll most likely discover and learn new skills and experience.
