Happy Singles' Day

November 11th is China's anti-Valentine's Day, a day when young people celebrate being single. But for many, its also an excuse to log onto China's biggest online shopping platform Taobao where almost all products are sold at half price. In just 6 minutes after midnight $164 million was spent and in an hour two million bras were sold, making a pile that would be three times higher than Mount Everest!
