Dear single ladies, are you dreading the inevitable "why no boyfriend yet" questions from your nosy relatives this coming CNY?

Well, let Lazada help you keep the kepoh aunties away. From 16 to 18 January, the online shopping site will be "auctioning" off some leng chais for Klang Valley shoppers to take 'home' this CNY!

Yep, we're doing "boyfriends for hire" for real now. 2k19 is off to a great start. :p

It's gonna be a rambang mata situation for you gals 'coz you'll have to choose from eight eligible bachelors - (clockwise from left) Eden See, Joseph Lee, Varhoon Vystra, Nigel Chin, Ilman Hakeem, Dennis Yin, Adery Chin, and Cyrus Yong.

Now pay attention - you're gonna need some help from your family and friends to snag yourself a date 'coz this is no typical auction

In fact, we'd say it's sort of like a reverse auction.

The aim of the game is to "slash" the boys' prices from RM8,888 to RM0, so you'll need to invite your family members and friends to help you achieve the 48 slashes needed to score a date.

Eight lucky ladies will then get the opportunity to bring their preferred boyfriend 'home' and attend a reunion luncheon with senior citizens on 26 January.

The app can be downloaded from the Apple Store and Google Play.
