So I was about to buy a gift for my friend who happens to live on the other side of the planet. I didn't want to spoil the gift and I really wanted to surprise her so I went to Amazon and I bought the gift. My original plan was to buy the gift from Amazon and I would just send it to her personally but I found out that Amazon now does international shipping so I took advantage of that service and guess what, I paid more for the shipping than my actual purchase. Okay maybe not but still it's pretty expensive. But it would cost me almost the same price when I get to send it to her personally so I think it's fair. I'm really lucky that I live in America, free shipping all the way.
