China Square Central Sunday Flea Market

A typical Sunday at CSC looks like this...


Pardon the blurry pix in this post cos I got quite a few vicious stares and comments when I was trying to snap pix.

I'd arranged to meet up with fellow toy collectors, namely TED, Michelle, Desmond and Armand (who was visiting Singapore this weekend).

I bumped into Armand at TFH, so I got to meet him earlier than expected. Nice finally meeting up with you dude! Hope you're happy with your toy scores.

Talked to Des, Chris and Leslie from Hobbyhype and finally got to meet Brandon, whom I'd exchanged PMs about 1:6 figs. Got to know that he was visiting Hong Kong with his friends in the coming week, and was glad to know that he had referenced my Hong Kong shopping posts and map for his trip.

Good to finally get to meet Adrian, whom I'd exchanged comments with via our blogs, and had dropped by right after his niece's one-month celebration. Sorry you caught us when we were just leaving. :(

Also bumped into Eric from Afhub, who I'd met the night before to pass him Hot Toys Batman and Joker that I'd helped Peter and Nelson acquire. I was glad he took my advice on dropping by CSC on a Sunday, which is when all the action really happens, as you'll see in the rest of the pix.

    TED, you went into the shop and fondled his cookies and I didn't want to publish pix of that.

  1. Armand says:

    Hey Shaun, it was good to finally meet you, and also the rest who came by. I think you got what it takes to be a toy tour guide, hehehehe!

    And Desmond, thanks for the Ironman score bro!

    good to meet you too, Armand. Toy tour guide? I don't think I've got the skillz and time. :)

  1. I LOVE the flea market even though I only went once =x I feel like I take the flea market for granted orz, since I live just a stone throw's away from china square central. <_< Need to go there more often, but my money will fly away much faster T_T
