    Whenever I go CP to walk walk/ browse, always got ppl come ask me if they can help me. Whenever I want to buy something, no one comes to me.....why liddat?? Lol. Generally, I think CP has rather good service, especially the tripod/studio department.
    If you understand my works, it's photography. If you don't, it's art.

    (it just happens that I was suppose to transfer the money to my pal in malaysia for a malaysian d2x)
    Got guts. I like your style. I would do that if I have the money too. I encounter quite a few bad attitudes shop owners in Orchard too. But for tourists, its number one service wor, even when these tourists were not buying, friendly attitude all the way leh.

    I forgot to mention, when I said that I would make sure nobody I know will go to that shop ever, some of their staff, all men, surrounded me and throw dirty looks.
    No, I didn't shuddered cos I was scared, I shuddered cos I have to fight the urge to throw up.
    they were unbelieveable
    If the man says "what do you want" the moment I walk in, say "want? want your head!"

    If he says "come back when you have a budget and we'll talk about price"
    I say "I intend to buy 10 1GB memory cards from you, but since you're so rude, forget it! I go to the shop upstairs"

    See how he responds.
