My Quest for an iPad 2
Ion Orchard: "Sorry, we're all sold out."
Sign in front of Wheelock store: "iPad 2: Sold out"
Suspicion that major retailers would be wiped out by early eager fans. Decide to try somewhere a bit more out of the way.
Taka Best Denki: "We have one last set left...
"Black, 32 GB, 3G and WIFI"
But...... How about 64GB?
"All sold out. That's the last set, you want?"
....... Not really, thanks. T_T
One more attempt at an out of the way store.
Electronic Store at Mandarin Gallery: ( Ha! How many of you knew this shop was here?! )
( Enough of you knew this store was here, apparently. Damn! )
Sign outside Courts: One model remaining, 16GB White. Argh!!!
Skipped Somerset 313, Orchard Central. No hope.
Harvey Norman, Centrepoint: ( Ha! How many people know this shop is here?? )
( A lot of you, damn!!! )
Dejected, I start to walk back towards Orchard, then...
Notice a number of people in the Orchard Central shop....
And some boxes being loaded into the shop...
TRY!!!! Run across the road ( with the green man, of course ) to the store!!
The boxes??? --- MacBooks. -_-!!!!!!!!!!!!
Feeling, dejected, finally head back to Orchard.
Then I go to the one place in Singapore I know I will get it.
So I'll wait a week or two more. Oh well, at least I know it will come into my hands.
Meanwhile, head to Kino and browse furiously through iPad magazines.......................
SMS from A: "Courts Toa Payoh got no queue. My fren wife bought today."
