Last weekend, I feel lucky and unlucky the same time :( I used to be Cleo magazine supporter for a long time. And I participated in Cleo shoe drop off event and queued for an hour!
Finally, when It is my turn and quickly grab a pair of studio tang shoes and rush to check out..
Guess what?! I'm not allow to join because I'm not a Singaporean!!!! I was like are you kidding me? I always allow to join all sorts of lucky draw and competition with my valid working pass! It's absurd because it wasn't state clearly inside the event!
Luckilly there's always good people around me :) there's an angel stand in line in front of me while I was in queue. And I didnt talk to her much just asking her what is her favourite & she is friendly :) at the end we choose the same shoes and she saw that I was Stucked while checking out and asked her friend who is not joining to help me out!
I'm so touched because she is so nice! I always faced this kind of situation and trust me, not much people (especially in Asia) will help out unless there's something they will GET or GAIN while they helped you.
At the end I gave out the only cash voucher I have in my wallet as a token of appreciation of her help :)
Without her help, I will have wasted my one hour plus wait and my trip to bugis.
Later that day, I met with my gf and we visited a Tiong Bahru Cafe, located right besides tang orchard!
To be honest I'm quite surprised they offered nice bakery and awesome coffee!!! But the place is kinda small so it's great to have small gathering 2-3 person!
