Is anyone going? I'm hoping we could meet up for dinner or something... thumbsup.gif
alvinaloy
I'll probably be free for meetup since I'm on Sunday long weekend! 29th Apr to 3 May off! W00t! And my gf's out of town so no one to stake out my time.

Would probably be going down with Darththew and another friend.
CrashWire
That's good... think we can meet up then? Get to know more people, hehe...
fer
details about the launch please?

Edit: nvm. got it
DarthThew

Aren't people supposed to be rushing home to chiong LIVE after leaving the launch? shocked.gif

Actually... I was thinking of some Belgian beer original.gif But well... Seeing that the crowd might be underaged (no offense), perhaps we can find a more 'healthy' activity.
CrashWire
No plans to subscribe to Live, so nah. My FFXI bill is already killing me.

But I really can't think of any nighttime haunts in Orchard that I can go to...
alvinaloy
Orchard doesn't have much to do at night... Thinking about it, Singapore don't really offer much night activities asides for the same few (clubbing, pubbing, discoing).

Well, you can always hang out at Orchard Towers 7-11 and watch the transvestites tongue.gif Or go get groped by transvestites in The Crazy Horse in Orchard Hotel laughing.gif
DarthThew
We can surely find some not " underage" guys u know.

Who needs real life when there's FFXI. tongue.gif But still, it's a good time to meetup with online friends. Hehe...
alvinaloy
Since it's a small community here (no offense). I'll let on that I'm going to get the LIVE kit tomorrow from a shop selling it at less than $80!!!!! The owner told me it's $70 something so I won't rule out the possibility of $79. Probably it's $78 as he usually gives $10 discounts for the $69.90 Xbox games and $5 discounts for $59.90 games.

Don't keep the good things to yourself leh.. tell us where!
alvinaloy
Ok, but please keep this to yourselves... Or at least keep it low. Microsoft is a control freak and wouldn't be happy that someone's not selling at their 'recommended' price. They might ban him from selling Xbox games altogether.

It's in Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre, 4th floor. Shop is called Computex (something). You can't miss it. Map:
Courtesy of Streetdirectory.com. Just note that when you enter the shopping centre via the main entrance, that's already the 2nd floor.

I'm not sure if the shop owner (Ah Lim) will sell at discounted prices to strangers actually. But perhaps if we're free someday, I can bring a few of you down to show face. He's damn good at recognising people. He even remembers Darththew even though D hasn't been there for like years.

Oh... And I just bought Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow from him for $58.
DarthThew
5 years to be exact. pls keep this info to yourself, dont anyhow anyhow spread.
My eyes pop out when alvin bought SC:PT for 58. blink.gif
CrashWire
Oh heh, it's that famous Upper Serangoon store...
Titanus
Related to Ah Lim? tongue.gif happy.gif
alvinaloy
Haha. I see folks here aren't strangers to Lim! laughing.gif I was quite shocked when someone told me he started selling Xbox games. Have been buying my games from him ever since. Cheap prices, great service, funny guy wink.gif
Blackmane
alvin: ONLY X box games? What about pc games? PS2?
alvinaloy
He usually sells PC games... I used to get all my *ahem* PC games from him until I moved to Braddell... Then his shop kena raided and he no longer sells them. He started selling Xbox games quite a while back. I've been trying to persuade him to sell games for other consoles as well... But well, he doesn't sell stuff where he don't have lobang.
Blackmane
alamat... he would have been perfect if he also sold *ahem* PC games... or even *ahem* PS games...

Pity.. :\

I'll keep him in mind.

BTW, not sure if you saw but can I have that link to the belgium place? Thanks man. original.gif
