In an attempt to make it easier to manage my digital photographs, in the hope that it'll make me want to use my sorely under-used digital camera more, i bought a Compact Flash card adapter. Its basically a PC-card that fits into my notebook and it allows my notebook to read compact flash cards directly. Downloading and even editing my pics directly from the camera's "film" will be much easier now. No more cable hassles, no more plugging the camera into my notebook.
What struck me as strange was when i bought the adapter from the PhotoFlash shop downstairs here in KLCC (3rd floor). It was priced at RM$95. I asked whether i can have it for RM$90. The guy said ok, he will sell it to me for RM$85. Stunned, i just said yes, paid for it quickly and left.
I'm still weirded out by what happened there. Can someone explain it to me?
