If you do notice, each lens box usually comes with a pack of silica beads. Helps to remove moisture. Besides those shops are usually in air-con room which reduces moisture by quite a bit. I dun feel a need to worry.

Do u know funan's challenger operates 24/7? Unless they have their own air-con system, I think the mall's air-con should be still in operation. Not too sure abt the rest but I dun think it's a huge problem.

How do you get in if challenger is on the top floor? Have to walk up a flight of escalators?

I don't think the aircon is 24hr, normally the mall will aircon is on from 10am-10pm only
as long as the air is dry, even there is no air con, the fungus always won't grow.

They sell for so long, if all kena fungus I think a lot of these shops will just emo close shop..

Don't worry about it. :)

No worries man, if fungus grew so easily many shops would have gone out of business and Digital imaging companies would have to ship their products out in dry cabs or dry boxes rather then cardboard boxes ! haha

Even dry cabs are not drying the air 24x7. Once target humidity is reached, the dehumidifier will turn off.
