    Thumbs down

    And beware of some of those "black-shop" tat use some of their very powerful tricks to trick people into buying their stuff.

    1) They will quote you a price without GST. And when you agree with the price and about to buy, they will chop on the warrenty card first and then tell you that GST is not included. If you dun buy from them, they will curse and swear as they will tell you that they already chop on their warrenty card so they cannot dun sell and whatever rubbish! (maybe they will 'fight-club' and jio you for a fight!)

    2) They will offer a good price which they will take out some of the bundled items!

    Be careful of those cheaters and jerks!

    No 2) reminded me of the time I was a newbie many years ago. I shopped around for the Tokina 28-200mm and finally bought it from a shop for $20 less than the rest. I later found out that the lens should come bundled with a close-up filter but the shop I bought it from did not include it.

    Anyway that was soooooo long ago I don't even remember which shop it was.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    ya man... esp this ah beng...



    this ah beng will not hesitate to curse the customer upside down... bring their ancestors from the other world to a much lower ground than they use to... esp telling him off even thou he is correct cos he is the youngest in the market... strange part is... after 6 years full time, he is still the youngest among the ppl in the market...

    btw his chinese name is Xiao Ming, den his Christian name is Charles.. but most ppl just call him Charles Ah Beng (sound like Chao Ah Beng)

    Actually.. Hong Kong had improved a lot.. no more "Look then must buy" attitude.. if dont buy they also say thank u and u feel guilty, which makes u remember the shop forever. However, some places in kowloon side still quite bad, but i wouldnt say its any worst then some SLS shops.

    in SLS i only go to a few shops.. the rest i dont even bother to look. Like camera, i only go Alan Photo if i want to buy in SLS.
