Bazaar Mania

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?

Nice that they provided chairs for you. Today was Black Friday here and people stood out at 3 in the morning for stores that open at 5AM. All to save a few dollars.
