there's something about ..... National Day

Yawn.

Fell asleep in the first 15 mins of NDP 2005. And caught the snippets from news earlier and one thought came to me.....

If they had used footages from 5 years ago (the last time NDP was held at padang), they would have fooled me. Didn't they have the whole sequence of song and dance about how-singapore-progress-from-1965-till-now thingy every year?

Went out this afternoon... realised everywhere was very quiet. I thought... wah... Singaporean very patriotic... all stay home getting ready to watch NDP on TV. Or.... they are either at Padang, Tampines, Yishun, Jurong East, Marina South for the NDP thingy.

But I was wrong.

They were all at Singapore Expo for the John Little Warehouse Sale. Me inclusive.

Nabeh. Damn crowded.

I dunno what's with Singaporean. We seems to be sucker for any Branded Departmental Store so-called "Warehouse" sale held not in a warehouse but at a far away exhibition hall, selling dated goods at price just 20 to 30% cheaper. While you could actually go to the actual departmental store located more conveniently in town and buy recent goods at 20% discount. So what's the logic?

Logic is KA CHING JIO.

The worst thing is we never seems to learn.

The first-ever Warehouse sale by another affiliated Departmental Store was, "OMFG, this is fantastic!!"

The second Warehouse sale a few months later was,
"This is not too bad"

The third Warehouse sale a few months later was,
"Wah... same old thing.... next time don't come already"

The fourth warehouse sale a few months later was,
"Nabeh... already say don't come, still come, ka ching jio!!"

And how about this.... since kenna sabo by the lousy merchandise at not so good discount by major departmental store, might as well kenna sabo twice over. Held in the same premises is SPORTS LINK warehouse sale.

SPORTS LINK has been celebrating their anniversary sale at all their outlets over the national day week. Over at the AMK outlet, you get to buy their latest apparrels at 40% off. I decided to skip it thinking that warehouse sale may just offer better discount, or at worse, same discount but with more merchandise since they say "Warehouse", so must be big.

Nabeh. It was probably the smallest Sports Link "outlet" ever... and they were selling dated merchandise...... and there aren't any recent merchandise. I mean who buy LOTTO Polo shirts, or DIADORA Polo Shirts, or YONEX Polo Shirts nowadays?

Next time won't go again.
