This was the scene at the Canon Warehouse sale in Canon HQ at Peremba Square. I was there at 9:45 and already there was a long queue. The queue was for those who wanted the 3 bargain items, with the rm 1 calculator being the most attractive, the other two were printer.

Most of the item on sale were Powershots A series camera and Ixus. There were also some printers and some outdated accesories.

By the time i reach the booths, there was already no queue for the people to buy the calculator and everyone was holding rm 1 bill and just jostling to get in to buy. Those who already bought have to fought their way out of the crowd. It was just a mess.

The sale was held outdoor and the canopy only cover the canon dealers with nothing covering the customers. If it were to rain it would be even more havoc.
