Shopping Online Sabah-based

I have been shopping online since early 2000 with the first purchase was made at amazon.com (a bookworm!) I was so into online shopping (kira macam addict juga la tuh kan excuses as we dont have shopping malls that sells those things in KK), that when lil C was a baby, I wanted to open an online baby shop or anything that deals with infants & toddlers, be it selling products/services. A friend and myself even talked about setting up a KK breastfeeding group, to assist and encourage new moms to breastfeed their newborns. (Back then, I was inspired with Lilian's My Mom's Best)

But then, being a first time mom with no maid to assist, I was so involved with the everyday ah sau's (ahmah) job + a baby to take care, the ambitious thoughts was slowly faded away. With my limited time & knowledge (as well as confidence), instead, I took up a correspondence course, a Montessori diploma for children of 3-6 years old. (Who knows I might open Infants & Toddlers Development class oneday!)

3 years later (that's now), I noticed that more and more moms (be it WAHM/FTWM) started their online business too! And the inspiring bit is that some of them located in KK/Sabah...

I would like to list down the Shopping Online which are Sabah-based, as reference. I am proud and inspired by you! (Please inform me if there's more, would like to add them... Sabah Boleh juga bah! The Boleh-land *giggle*)

MiaBambina.com owned by Sandra Rocco. I love window shopping here becoz of the bubbly owner ;) and her green products!

"Baby, Tots & Mom" owned by Miranda. She too sells cloth diapers and other green products.

"Contemporary Cakes for All Occasions" owned by Deana Edmund.. She is very creative & I love her cuppies!

Way to go - good to see online marketing picking up.

I'd like to mention one more, and more advanced one. Run by a Sabahan -I also just got to know about it. I think this can be a case study in affiliate marketing.


If you dont believe it is run by Sabahans, check out the Contact Us page. It's amazing: HQ in Sabah, but catering for US market.

I was made to understand that the proprietor is making a handsome 5 figures (RM) monthly.

Just received a check for $500.

Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can earn taking paid surveys from home...

So I show them a video of myself actually getting paid over $500 for paid surveys to set the record straight once and for all.
