    in case anyone is still looking for a kite, i just saw one, at a shop at Woodlands MRT. Its the one near the toilet, and a decent sized kite goes for about 6 bucks and a spool of kite string for about 10, iirc. =)

    ok, confirm is imiation kites. He told me is China kites.
    My friend went down had a look this afternoon and found out.
    Anyway not much different, unless encounter little wind, then expensive still can maintain at sky longer.
    Carbon fibre rod not as solid as genuine. Sail material also different.
    BUT Price alot cheaper. LOL

    Yes, there are fake/imitation/clone kites...

    example the Wala sold here is fake/clone of the Wala from Flying Wings. The original do not have the orange and green colours...
