What are these people waiting for?
Their waiting for their turn to go into the Charles & Keith (a Singapore-based women footwear company) bazaar, which slashed their prices by more than 50%.
This lineup was the third, after I experienced a lineup on the 6th floor, 7th floor and eventually the 8th floor before going into the hall where the bazaar took place. In total, I waited for 1 1/2 hours! (That is why they provided chairs for us to wait in).
I guess there's no financial crisis here.....or maybe because people are a bit tight on money that these kind of bazaars are then so overcrowded?
