1. Introduction
When my flatmates suggested lunch downstairs, I had no idea I was about to part with 500 bucks. After all, we were only heading to a coffee stall downstairs for lunch, right? Well.. as far as wrong assumptions go, this is pretty huge. Along the way, we agreed that we were just tired of the food in the neighbourhood and drove off to a narrow alley just off Sim Lim Square, and I thought, what the heck, I'd go in for a look-see after lunch. I should have taken my flatmates' offer to bring my wallet back home for me, leaving me with only enough to get home. =)

"... I casually asked the shopowner if the stock for DeskTop Theater 5.1 set was there. And it was... the next thing you know, my wallet was out and my credit card was being zapped for $495!"
"For me, if it sounds good to me, it has delivered the goods... precisely what the Theater 5.1 does for you at the end of the day."

Anyway, I was in Interactive Media when I casually asked the shopowner if the stock for DeskTop Theater 5.1 set was there (reported earlier in Hardware One). And it was. It took very little convincing on his part, and the next thing you know, my wallet was out and my credit card was being zapped for $495!
