From Mongkok, Central is merely 5 stops away but apparently, I took the wrong train, had to get off, repurchase ticket and ended up meeting Ben an 45 min late. Worse thing, in the MTR, cannot sms him – NO RECEPTION!
So Ben met me at Chater house in Central, where he works for the great JP morgan. Chater house is connected to The Landmark building.. and basically, it’s like a huge paragon. You see this like multiple storey building of

I'm really blessed for him to bring me around. I would have felt so lonely if no one took me out. One girl all alone in a foreign country -- makes you wanna go eat a can of worms right???
Toodles, you all, that's almost enough for a night. Tomorrow's the HP press event. Think it's going to eb damn exciting cuz I'll get to see first hand the newest product lineup. What's more, the rest of Singapore media is here. Cnet, Hardware zone, pc mag, digital life plus Melvin said he'd introduce me to other bloggers such as Angus Lau
I'll update more as the day goes by... Love lots! XOXOXOX
