Went down to the Nike Expo sale on Friday morning. Good thing that we went down early. Arrived at Singapore Expo around 9.55AM on the first day of the sale and there was already a stream of people flooding into expo hall as the doors were opened. Quickly got a transparent trash bag from the staff there and went in to look for treasure.
This time I won't deny that I was one of those typical kiasu Singaporeans who I often complain about. Hey, but at least I didn't go there BEFORE the opening time to queue up! So anyway, there were so many people with so little stuff to buy. you really had to adopt a "See. Like. Buy." attitude. Think for 1 second more and another person would have took the last piece off the rack.
It was so fast that I practically finished my shopping within 15 minutes. The range of clothing there were just merely above the acceptable level and the shoes section mostly focused on running shoes. I only saw like 4 sneakers on sale in the entire expo hall. Most of the center racks contained bits and pieces of accessories, which were the main buys of the sale.
In the end I spent $65 within those 15 minutes. One of my fastest shopping sprees ever. But I'm actually quite satisfied with the "junk" that I manageed to pick up from that giant rubbish bin.
Basketball Shorts $20
Ankle Socks $5
Water Bottle $10 each
The Satisfaction of getting stuff that the latecomers would never know existed
