Many of us shop online, primarily because retailers in cyberspace offer better deals than what we find in stores around us.
Karena Ng, however, has taken to shopping online for a totally different reason.
Speaking at a dinner organised by Pegasus Entertainment in Kowloon Bay, the 21-year-old actress revealed that she usually shops on the internet in a bid to remain outside the public eye as much as possible, reported Oriental Daily.
"Actually, I go for internet shopping as people will take photos of me whenever I am out shopping."
Ng made the revealation when she was quizzed about how much she spent on on a recent skiing vacation with her boyfriend, Raymond Lam, to Hokkaido in Japan, which drew a straight answer from her -- that there was nowhere to shop and that they were busy enjoying the sporting activities on offer there instead.
She was also asked about her plans for Valentine's Day, which falls on this Friday (Feb 14).
She has thought of getting a hand-made ornament for Lam but with both of them needing to work on that day, they were uncertain if they will even be able to see each other, let alone exchange gifts.
"It depends on what time we finish work, and then we'll see if we can celebrate together," Karena said.
