No wonder its easy to do business in Singapore.
Just create enough hype and ignite the kiasuism in the populace and people will fall over each other to buy your stuff :lol:

SGD$55 each
SGD$100 for 2

deal at boon keng or toa payoh mrt.

Get your kitty now!!!


I pulled this from another thread, probably gone now.

I guess this is why some people queue.

Can't say I understand why anyone would either queue or pay money for this sort of trash, but guess I just haven't lived in Asia long enough. :???:

Trust me, I lived around here all my life, I don't get them either.

You can count on me NOT jumping into the bandwagon.

Have you seen the queues at some of the expos of electronics retailers(at Singapore Expo)? Like 1st 50 sets for dirt cheap.

Mostly foreigner workers queue up overnight and sleep in the queue just get it cheap and then may be resell it and make a profit

I can fully understand that! I haven't eaten in a fast food restaurant in over 5 years.
