Singapore Trip/Exchange 14 Ignite

So I was down at Singapore for about a week to attend the Exchange “14” Ignite, as well as to take some time off to get around and about. Here are some of the slightly more interesting stuffs that I saw during my trip. (56kbps warning!)

First up, for LCie: MOS burger!!! I think I had it for at least twice.


I was so excited that I ordered 2 burgers! Yay! But I was in a rush that I left the 2nd one on the table. Darn.


For Juls, CH and Ivy: Look at the big cannons!


For Justin: Star Trek in DLP was awesome! And with some UOB credit card the tix price would just be SGD6.


For Andy and Corra: Although it was on sale, it was still too expensive (for me) la. SGD240 for slippers? Ended up with Nike @ SGD55.


Singaporeans really like their arts. This was on the MRT station wall @ Chinatown aka Niu Che Shui. Took these while waiting for CK.



For Funj: Here was how the event look like. See? I saw in front row, good student leh. Cham didn’t like it at all though :P


For Funj: Without breaching the NDA, here is one shot of the Dell Latitude 17 inchers that everyone was using with 8GB of RAM. That’s almost 200 units in one room…


For Justin: They had the Maverick in transparent case! Is this authorized version or china ciplak?


For Daniel and LCie: Asahi beer from the tap! Damn smooth! SGD9.90 per pop. Too bad the ramen so so only. Thanks Joseph for insisting to pay for the dinner!


Toilet also got flat panel TV, don’t play play OK. Even my house is still on CRT TV :(


For Justin and Julian: Tons of camara bags, @ top floor Sim Lim Square. Not sure about pricing though. Kata, National Geographic, Tamrec, Lowepro – complete collection!


For LCie and LH: Went to Night Safari with Cham. Thanks LH for the recommendation! It was well worth the SGD22 tix. Came out and lo and behold, a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream parlor! You’d wouldn’t find this in Malaysia… (fresh anyway.)


For Funj: Only wish that I could lug these babies back! SGD160 at South East Asia computer store @ Funan.


For Julian: This is the Intuos that I saw, it was huge! Too bad I am artistically crippled :P


Ah here is the place where I had the Asahi beer on tap. Shokudo. I heard there is a outlet in KL? img340

For CK and Isaac: I went to the Singapore Science Center, and I think it was well worth the visit. SGD25 and we spend the whole day there.  SSC had a huge animatron T-Rex at the entrance. It was huge and very articulate, compared to the Dino and Monster expo at Midvalley


Look closely. The model is even made to be “anatomically correct”…


All Red Alert fans: SSC has a real tesla coil on demo! Video @ next post.


Me and CK were very lucky as the Da Vinci expo was there and it was suppose to be the only stop in South East Asia. Too bad no pix allowed inside.


McSpicy (Singapore) = Chicken McDeluxe (Malaysia).


One more round of MOS burger before going back! Yakiniku Rice (beef).

For Edwin: I did get to Computex after 3 train line changes and 1 bus ride later…. Thanks for the info anyway :)


For Funj and Cham: Polycom units on sale…but why no stock one leh. Challanger @ VivoCity.


For Joey: The garden is actually on the roof of the building! @ViviCity.


Isaac would had love it there.


Pseudo lake garden on the roof – magnificent!


For LH: ALDO was on sale, 20% off.


For Justin: National Geographic’s signature outlet was at VivoCity – it has a zero Celsius chamber to test out their winter wears… but even a sweater costs SGD250…


For all burger/hotdog lovers: This is the ultimate place to go. Albeit the corny name, the burger I ordered was fantastic! Check next pix!


Ben and Jerry’s again! For SGD3 more on top of the meal.


This is the Super Burger. Aptly named, the meat patty consists of BOTH beef and pork. And I ordered extra bacon and eggs… inside the burger! Yom yom yom!


For all Sarawakians: Kolo mee rocks! @ LG2 VivoCity.
