    We're here now. Enjoying the king-size sandwiches with free drinks and fries! And of course with our iPads as the main course. Hehehe!

    iPads all in protective cases I'm guessing? It would be awful if you got oil on your iPad! :p

    Never made it to the meet up. Hope those that made it there (eventually), had a good time.

    The fiance found out from her colleagues that Rustan's Shangri-La Mall was having a fire sale. Looks like Rustan's is dropping prices to get rid of stock that had been on display or whatnot during the fire the other week. She got 3 pairs of shoes that were marked down 75%, 60%, and 50% respectively. I picked up some flip flops for 50% off. Didn't get to see you guys, but I can never pull my fiance from sales of this magnitude so I'll just try and make the next meetup. Y'all might want to check out the sale this weekend. (FYI, they only had the doors on the ground floor level open and the smell of smoke still permeated much of the store even up to now. My fiance's asthma started acting up after several hours looking for sale items.)

    A lenzman...

    Maybe you meant you don't need it right now...No offense bro, but you made a statement that sounds very similar to sourgraping.

    Anyway, simply put, even without a "Gun Ban", you shouldn't bring you unlicensed gun anywhere. At all.

    Dropped in at the iPad meet unannounced, and really had fun. Met some old friends and made some new ones.

    Damn, once you get hold of an iPad and play with it for a while you'll truly appreciate how fantastic it is.
    Do it and you'll get hooked. Be forewarned!

    Sorry I didn't make it guys :(

    eBay just delivered my bazooka and I just realized it may fall under the darn gun ban (but it's a big bazooka, officer? It's not a gun)

    Seriously now, my absence has nothing to do with the boo-ing, hehe.

    Just got stuck editing a story and worse had to be back in ABS by 8pm for a General Assembly. No chance with the traffic.

    Extremely jealous of you all. I saw Carlo's pics na. Bitin! Lima lang?

    Pls post more pics for the losers who didn't get to go :(
