Thread: It show was a disaster!!!

  1. #1

    Default It show was a disaster!!!

    I tried going to the IT SHOW today, instead of bargains, I've got hell. The crowd control was simply lacking. I was stuck at city link for nearly 30mins, unable to understand what was happening in front of me. I wonder anyone had that experience...

    When i finally got into suntec via marina square via milennia walk, I was still unable to get into the IT show. They were channelling people here and there.. I finally gave up and return home.

    all big events tend to be like that

    to be fair, it is in part because singaporeans tend not to follow directions, so all the plans of mice and men (and organisers) are generally laid to waste in a quick matter of time.

    if you cannot handle it, then stay at home. like i do.

    Look at it positively, it prevented you from spending precious cash.

    That's why I seldom go. Just to save a few hundreds of bargain for this type of crowdedness not worth it for me.

    Saw some dudes totting their DSLRs there...
    Really, are there anything nice to shoot at all?

    Even if there are, the crowd makes it hard to shoot, doesn't it?

    Those GWCs every event you go sure see their crok faces 1. Even if you miss some events and go for the rest still see their crok faces. Like that its not coincidence - too much of a coincidence. They should get a life. Like some organized shoot also, every now and then the same old GWC crook faces

    no lah, kiasuness to get freebies which no one everthink they will need it or not overshadows the fear of recession. its an addiction, only after getting high will the addict feel pain when the exhilarating effects wear off

    Crocs will surface if there are chicken meats around.
