My Dear and I just returned home from COMEX 2009 which was held at Suntec City Exhibition Hall level 1,2,3,4 and 6.

I can tell you that the crowds are really maddening! Right from City Hall MRT, we can see the snaking long crowds as thousands of Singaporeans descended upon Suntec City for the best buys at COMEX 2009!

COMEX actually is the abbreviation for Computer Exhibition. But the COMEX we visited is more than a computer exhibition. Spanning 5 stories, COMEX offers a myriad of IT gadgets and there is also a slew of financial service providers promoting their services.

It is very ambitious, highly impractical and seeming impossible for one to visit the hundreds of stalls spread over the 5 stories. Luckily there is a number of panels highlighting the type of stalls on each storey.

To get the best buys, one must come to COMEX 2009 with a sense of purpose, like what you seek to buy; it is the same prinicple as in life: one must first have a goal and then seek what you seek and you will get it.

For me, I am looking for rechargeable batteries, camera memory card and portable hard disk at good bargains, thus I proceeded to 6th storey straight after being enlightened by the panel.

A bunch of girls stood out prominently among the monotonous stalls and throngs of people. They gamely posed for me to take a good picture of them.

At the end of the day, I got good bargains:

a) Kingston 8GB SDHC memory card for $25

b) 4 packets of GP rechargable (2700 mAh) batteries, (2 in 1 packet) for $36

c) 2 Acer portable harddisk for $88.90

COMEX 2009 closes tomorrow, if you have not yet to get the stocks you want, hurry down to Suntec on tomorrow closing sales, who knows prices may also hit more south!
