Recession? What Recession?

The recently concluded PC Show at Suntec just proved that there's a new "species" in Singapore. At times like this, one is expected to tighten the belt and stay at home. But these "species" are different. They are loaded and not affected by the downturn. If there are generations X, Y and Z in this world, then I will call them the generation S. The big spenders. Singapore has got a population of approx 4.8 million. And about 1.2 million turned for the show. That's a quarter of the island's population. Are these people really loaded and not affected by the recession? Or are they just a bunch of "kiasu" people turning up for good bargains and enjoy free air-conds. It seems like Singaporeans have got nowhere else to go. Everytime when there's something big organized, you can expect the whole of Singapore being there. This is madness.
