Sitiawan mentality rawks!!!

Coming from a very money minded town....here is a story of a local Sitiawan boy's adventure in Seattle yesterday.Ok....i came back from the gym yesterday at around 7.15pm....put some smoked mussels into the microwave, ate my dinner and proceed to the computer. I checked some videogame bulletin boards and found out that videogame shops are taking pre-order for PS3 the next day. What did i do?? Out of curiosity......i called one of the shops and they told me that they are having a midnight pre-order and there was no line because not many people know about it. I literally stop forumming and dash out the door. I got to the shop at about 8.00pm and i was first in line. Whooo Hooo!!! Hang out with some really cool Uni kids there soon afterwards. Anyway, at 12.01 am......i got my orders in.

Anyway, i went home and went to bed. Got up at about 6.00am....shaved and shower, and am on my way to the mall again to go to another store to pre-order a PS3. Malls here opened up early for people to do morning walks in them. Thus after driving around the mall a couple of times, i ask security where is the entrance for the walking walks and was shown the way. Anyway, i turn the corner and Jeng! Jeng! Jeng! there was no one in line and i was first in line again!!!!! Life is good.

Now for those of you who don't know, new videogames launch are hot commodities during Christmas time. Xbox360 went for almost 3-4x its retail price on Ebay. So the reason i am doing this is i hope to make some extra money selling them. Its been predicted that price could go as high as $2000 for each console on Ebay. Too bad i can't be at 2 places at one time coz i would have ordered more. Oh....i put down $100 and the PS3 is going to cost $600. Oh....called my boss this morning telling him i am not coming in today. Hehehhehehehe.....
