Transit shopping in Singapore

Got in my possession one of the first iPod Touch to be released in Singapore. It was supposed to be out yesterday but not all shops received the stock. There's this shop in Funan that had a few and I bought it right away. Got just the 8gb version for S$498 which is list price here minus about S$25 in GST refund when I leave tomorrow. Other than the iPod, bought a couple of accessories for my photo stuff, and a mid sized backpack for my future chinese adventures. Cathay photo was selling the Epson R2400 printer for just S$1599 but its too big for me to smuggle back to Shanghai. Anyways, the Chinese customs are kings at imposing duties on new and used printers and scanners.
