The nastiest place to be right now…

… would probably be town. That’s because the annual Great Singapore Sale is now here and you have the young and old alike hitting the stores for all the wonderful deals avaliable. Some of the shopping malls have also extended their opening hours so that shoppers would be able to shop till later. Put that crowd together with the husbands who don’t really want to be there, the kids who run everywhere and threaten to trip you, as well as the tourists from neighbouring countries who come down to take advantange of the sales, and Orchard Road is hell, especially if you happen to be someone who doesn’t like to shop and don’t happen to like being around people. Even crossing the underpass could give one a serious case of claustrophobia.

I’ll put up some pictures soon to prove my point.

Oh yeah, happy 666 people ;)

    Darn, I don’t like shopping and even less do I like sales. Did you ever notice how sometimes the price has gone up instead of the other way round for a few specific items, as well?

    yeah that’s one of the way they recoup their profits I guess.
