IT Show Singapore Experience

statue guy IT showYesterday, I finally went to the IT show and bought my new Sony W170 digital camera. Whew! There is a huge turnout in the IT show and I am thankful that event was over. I even have a comedic experience before I went to Suntec City. When I was on my way to the MRT I have realized that I forgot to put on my deodorant. I already walked many footsteps and I don't want to go back home. Anyway when I reached City Hall MRT, I dropped by Guardian and bought a roll-on. At least, I was smelling good the whole time I was in Suntec City. Hahaha.

Singapore IT show 2009At the entrance of Suntec City, I saw this guy painted in silver and was standing still with a laptop. He's really great in what he's doing. By the way, I saw that same guy in Orchard before with the same outfit and body paint. At the entrance near Starbucks coffee, it looked like a traffic jam. Since I cannot squeeze in to that, I went to the other entrance. On my way to the 2nd level, I was surprised that people are restricted to use the elevator. Apparently, there is huge turnout and they controlling the number of people getting inside. There is even an announcement for people to just come back after an hour. Would even people back after one hour? It took me an hour of traffic to get there and I need to come back?

Makoy Sony W170Anyway, minutes later people are already getting up the escalator. I went first to the Sony station at the 2nd level. I asked for the Sony W170 and was shocked that there is no stock anymore. My face literally went from 10 excitement to 10 sadness. Since there is another Sony station at the 4th level, I went there immediately and asked if they still have a stock of Sony W170. My "A" game is back when the lady said yes. I asked her to demo the camera and to explain the features. After her demo, I asked for the freebies and the available colors. To those who are interested to know, my Sony W170 has 10.1 megapixels and has 5x optical zoom. The camera by the way cost S$369 or P11,300. That includes two 4GB memory, two batteries, underwater case, screen protector, case, charger, lens and camera cleaner, tripod and AV jack. Isn't that great?

Anyway, since many have requested for some pictures in the IT show, I went to check out the other products and took some pictures (from my mobile camera). Will post the pictures tomorrow. There are really good buys especially the laptops. I was too tired by the way so I wasn't able to check the price of a laptop memory.

I went home by the way with a tired body and feet. I even slept while I was on the MRT.

At last the cam is here! I was really awed by the crowed you showed in the photo. Are the products discounted calling so many buyers or are they in regular prices??

That is a good news that you are very familiar of the place and you were able to rush to the 4th floor right away and be lucky to have the cam.

Wow! Bagong cam! Congratulations. I expect more photos here then. ^^

I think it will be same crowd here for next month IT show, I went once and you know what? You can go one way and cannot come back to the same shop any more. Meaning if you want to buy you must buy right away, you cannot go back the same stall if you walk of the hall. If you want that hall you got to walk across all hall then start again from beginning! :( I can imagine how tired that is now.

Where are you ba Sherry? In Malaysia? That means you are neighbor with Makoy there?

So the red and gold are for women eh. Thus you have reason to bu this color.
