hi guys... just came back from a short trip to singapore...
it's just a great place... wonderful people, wonderful food, lots of sights to see...

of the many things, i had to do... i had two things on my to do list which i wanted to... uhmm... do... :D

one was to visit atomic collective (atomiccollective.net) which i guess is a shop and track well at least this is what's on their site...

so how could i possibly miss this right?... well as chance would have it, unfortunately i couldn't pass by... :( :(

at least there was the hope of trying to visit toykar which is listed as one of kyosho's official distributors in singapore...

luckily i did have time to visit the place...
it is located on 583 orchard road, #B1-11 Forum The Shopping Mall,
Singapore 238884 (tel +65 6732 3197)

unit of currency in singapore is the sing dollar (s$) which is approximately s$1.20 = us$1

some of the things to take note...

autoscale body s$78 approx us$64
awd s$299 (us$245)
tiki red mr03 s$349 (us$287)
awd 2.4 toyota celica s$339 (us$278)
mr03 s$289 (us$237)
mr03ex s$269 (us$221)
mr02 am s$199 (us$163)

:eek:

a bit kinda expensive?!?!
but considering singapore has a thriving economy, and the cost of living is a bit high, i'm inclined to believe that these prices indicate that in general, the singaporeans have a bit more disposable income...

this is also quite evident by quite a number of endless malls that they have over there... it's just consumerism at its highest as i have ever seen... kind a bit like hong kong... but at least in hong kong, the prices of mini-z come no where close to those prices...

well needless to say... poor herman went out of the shop with nothing but pictures... :rolleyes::o:(

well that's not entirely true...
i was able to get a shirt with the mini-z.jp print on it
and a mini-z book... which is written in all japanese...

herman, why don't you come to jakarta indonesia. we'll treat you for a mini-z racing as well.

thanks for the invite... i actually visited jakarta back in 2008... you also have quite a number of malls around there too, also great infrastructure too, but unfortunately i didn't see any mini-z's around... and didn't know anybody who knew...

pls do make a different thread entitled "mini-z in indonesia" and maybe you can post some information as well as pictures on the thread (i.e. stores that sell mini-z, tracks, etc.) i believe it would definitely be of help to those who would want to visit and see mini-z stuff in jakarta

if and when i do take another trip there, i do hope to meet you...
thanks again in advance... :D
