    Got an address?
    I will visit the Usher showroom - its about 1/2 of the prices in SG.

    Note their voltage is 110V and foreign brands are not cheap.

    Hi people, another dumb question from me given there are many 'first' for me, travelling alone, working on itinerary ...

    Just got the room booking confirmation from Brother Hotel. Although it states the net room rate, it doesn't state the total bill. In addition, the e-mail comes with an attachment, i.e. a GTD form or something. To me it looks like a separate form which requires me to fill in my credit information as well as attaching a photocopy of my card and then fax it back to the hotel ... is this a common practice?

    Thanks in advance! All of you have helped me a lot!

    Quite accessible via the MRT though might have to walk quite a distance to there. Nice place to dine in. The forest design of the restaurant is really cool.

    i thought comparable to sg zichar prices might be mistaken.

    anyways, must drop by to shihlin night market. try out the 棺材板 and the xxxxl chicken. really good stuff. also must eat oyster omelette. go the gcb stall, ask owner recommend. they will suggest the better stalls. the one i usually go will jsut help order for u

    i'm going from 28/12 to 7/1 and bring my d90 along. i'm afraid of condensation as the weather will be cold and i'll be going up to alishan.

    any advice on how to avoid or minimise condensation?
