I survived Sitex 2007

It wasn’t as bad as I thought, Sitex. There was actually room to walk around without having to get intimate with anyone’s elbow or shoulder.

I have always tried to stay far far away from such events. I would even emigrate to Siberia if I had to, just to avoid crazy Singaporeans, because one of the scariest things in life to encounter is a Singaporean at a sale.

But sometimes I would get forcibly dragged to such an event by a geek boyfriend and I would be traumatised for the rest of the day, and I would swear never to let it happen again.

Today, for the first time in my life, I voluntarily went to Sitex. I needed to get some memory cards and check out laptops.

One of the first things I saw was a queue.

I couldn’t see the head of the queue so I didn’t know what these people were queueing for.

I asked the Goonfather, “What are they queueing for?”

“I don’t know. Do you want to queue up, too?” he asked.

“Dotdotdot,” I told him.

We continued walking around. I was looking out for booth babes to photograph but I didn’t see any.

“Sitex is boring,” I announced. “There are no booth babes. No wonder I haven’t seen any photos of Sitex babes on the net.”

“Got lah. Sitex got booth babes.”

“Where? I don’t see any.”

“You go check HardwareZone.”

Apparently, someone is very well-informed about booth babes.

“I mean in here! I don’t see any booth babes here.”

“They’re having dinner.”


Anyway, it was very very unexciting, so I kept my camera.

At closing time, we bought a laptop. From this place.

Because the evil uncle tempted us with a $160 discount if we paid by Nets.

Asus. Rock Solid. Heart Touching. (Says the company’s slogan. I always wonder about the people who come up with slogans and the people who approve them.)

We got an Asus F8Sv.

First laptop I’ve owned in my life! (Technically speaking, the Goonfather owns it cos he paid for it. But we’re sharing it. So, don’t care lah. I’m holding it, so it’s mine! Bwahahaha.)

I have felt very suaku for the longest time because I’ve never owned a laptop. But my suaku days are over! Yay!

And my SDHC memory cards! These I paid for myself, so they’re very legitimately mine!

Don’t you just love shopping? =)

Then again, I think everyone loves different things.

For instance…

Will the owner of this car please own up?!


We saw this car parked just outside Expo as we were leaving the place.

Crazy Singaporeans!
