I recently got a camera down from Singapore from Cathay Photo. These guys are very prompt and professional. First they were prompt and thorough in providing a very comprehensive quote including tax components etc. Then they had the goods ready to be collected by my mate on the day and also have packed the basic product with some goodies! In my case I got a fast 8GB SD card, a basic tripod, a cleaning kit a card reader and a bag. Not bad.
If anybody is shopping for photo gear in Singapore these guys are highly recommend.

SLIA Annual Sessions and the Exhibition 'Architect 2011' will be held at the BMICH from Feb 23rd to 27th 2011.
Actually the so called"sessions" consist of;
Inauguration - Exactly that! - 23rd
Exhibition - Architect 2011 - 23rd to 27th
National Conference - Architecture for all: City + Community - 24th
AGM - (members only) - Fellowship Night - zzzzzzzz - 26th
Here is the SLIA site, but if you are looking for the schedule of events don't go there, it wont tell you! Neither does the separate web page for the Exhibition as it takes ages to load. But if you are a 'flash' fan definitely worth a visit!. Call the SLIA, that is the best.
This time the theme is "Architecture for all: City + Community"
In 1981,Harry B. Macklowe, the developer of theMetropolitan Tower, New York, planned a large office tower that would have included not only his own site at the Metropolitan Tower, but also the restaurant's (ie. Russian Tea Room's) and the lot on whichCarnegie Hall Towerwas erected. There was an agreement withCarnegie Hallabout their lot, but Stewart-Gordon, who owned the lot dividing the project, refused to sell. Macklowe also offered to buy theair rightsonly and to give room for her restaurant inside the new tower building, but Stewart-Gordon declined. No matter what she was offered, Stewart-Gordon refused to sell the lot.
During the planning of the Carnegie Hall Tower at 152 W. 57th St., on the other side of the Russian Tea Room, again Stewart-Gordon declined to sell its site or its air rights. The result is the narrow twenty-foot gap, separating the Metropolitan and Carnegie Hall towers.
