PC Show mayhem...

went to the PC Show today… decided to go down and check out how it was like… (which isn’t any different from the IT Show held three months back…) and whether there was any good deals… whilst there.. i couldn’t help but ponder about certain stuff (some which irked me.. and some juz made me go ‘hrmmm’)

  • why do people bring their kids along to such events? i saw children ranging from babies (really young, sleeping in the pram) to grumpy three year olds and of course older kids… it wasn’t as if the place was some mega mall… it was packed and hot.. and you have parents kinda dragging their children all over (pushing the pram together wif the big-ass printer or lcd monitor or computer)… i can’t comprehend… perhaps they juz happened to be out and decided to go check out PC show… ?
  • where the PC show was uber-crowded.. the publishing book show on the fourth floor was comparatively quiet.. more families were there (it was much more spacious too…) and of course there were the assesment books and story books… yawnz…
  • in fact it was so crowded that there was no room for any booth babes… yeah the girls that help to attract more biz to the counters… i saw the samsung booth babes having to stand on a mini platform and announce the promos using a loud hailer…
  • maybe if they blasted more aircon into the place and turn it colder there might be less people? u can get quite hot and sweaty juz by squeezing wif people… gosh..
  • there must be like some fetish singaporeans have wif big ass printers… at every consumer electronics show like PC or IT Show.. there’s bound to be many many people pulling a biggggggg box of printer home wif their free trolley (looking at the size of the thing they better give me the trolley if not i wun buy…)

ah well.. too crowded.. didn’t get anything in the end… anyway i’m sure there’ll be another consumer electronics show three months later…

in other news.. Great Singapore Sale is upon us again… its crowded everywhere u turn during this weekend… i bot stuff but they weren’t exactly on sale per se… hahahaha… nothing to buy now actually… =P oh i got two pillows frm robinson at 8bucks each… so sad!! lol…

work starts again tomolo.. gah…
