    it's cheapER but not cheap lor... $8 for a plastic tin of eggrolls is like ugh...

    pomelo, $2 for grandsons, $5 for normal (NTUC $3.80)

    the crowd about 50-70% of normal but add all the umbrella assassins (short ppl with small umbs) and the umbrella ronin (big guns like mine)

    hehe pentiumpc, you have a alternative notion of fun.. next time u can join me in having the spittoon on your head?

    I guess depends what time. Think becoz of the rain, the shop keepers were holding out till quite late b4 slashing prices. There was still a thin crowd around early morning.

    Was there around 3:30+ am, quite a no of stalls still open. bought a 5 layer bamboo shoot for $10, tried bargaining but cannot lower anymore. Peanut candy was at $0.50 each, pineapple tarts were at 3 for $5.

    heh uncle, when I was there the sweets were already at 80cts for 100g and free 200g for 500g (ie 700g for $4)
    yeah the BIG pomelos were originally $11.80 (yi yi fa)
    but sigh couldn't find the stall with the BIG windmills... (the one near the end of one street)
    I think I collected enough water for a 3 day hiking trip on my t-shirt... macam like playing some PS game of dodging water spouts in the tentage...
