Q1: When do you usually go shopping?
Generally speaking, I usually go shopping during the weekends. As I have to hit the books from Monday to Friday for five days in a row. Um... there's no way for me to go shopping during the weekdays.
But it really depends, it depends on whether there is any special offer or end of the season sale or Mid season sale going on or not. So when it comes to the time when there is any discount and shopping malls I will be shopping like a mall rat.

Q2: Do men or women go shopping mall?
Women are definitely the demographic who are more likely to go shopping. It's one of the fields where women have the advantage.
They are always popping into big department stores, shopping malls, street stalls andboutiques to shop like a mall rat. Especially when it comes to end of season sales or final clearance.
But it would turn out to be a totally different picture when it comes to men. Men like to stay at home or wait for their wives in the car when their wives are shopping, even if it comes to the time they shall they usually go to the store and grab the thing they need and leave right away.
