    What a day! There were 2 articles of Star Wars in today's (26 Apr 02, Fri) Straits Times! First is the super long picture of Padme, Anakin, R2-D2 and C-3PO on Tatooine! The reports says TIME Nagazine, which had an exclusive preview of the entire movie, was very pleased with Episode II!

    The other was in the main paper. It's a 2 pages long advertisement on Episode II by POD. There's a great poster, plus ways you can get your hand on Episode II notepads, mousepads, poster, T-Shirts, blah blah by SMS, buying their phones or purchases.

    POD will also have a private screning of Episode II on 16 May, 12 midnight... well, that's not so exclusive , rite?

    At least we can confirm most of the operators will be opened on midnight! Kewl!

    I'll love to get myself a Handphone (get my dad to pay for me :p ) but I hardly get contacted even with my Pager. So not worth it currently to get myself a handphone even one with the Pod Card.

    I saw this store which had a creative idea of taking out the Episode II cardboard foldout from 8 Days and placed it on their PC's monitor! Cool!

    But i think there is also a trade in too rite, also my handphone has been a little faulty this couple of days besides some of the handphones with the subscription plan doesnt seem that expensive.
    By the way the way they decorated the place was pretty cool huh? Also the poster, whoa huge i tell u.

    The $0.50 edition is avilable at newsstand... most probably the BUZZ kiosks.

    Anyway, issit worth it?

    I'd rather pay 10 cents more for Straits Times...

    Not in local media, but about SINGAPORE:

    The Official Site has updated their main page tonight with several new splash pages that appear in a random order. Those of you logging in will see various images of AOTC characters such as: Padme Amidala, Count Dooku, Jango Fett, Zam Wesell, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Mace Windu.

    The images are the same ones that were used in the exclusive Attack of the Clones postcards that theaters are handing out in Singapore, and are also the same images that are adorning subway/bus terminal poster slots, and the walls of theaters and buildings in international locations.

    If you want to view all the shots just refresh the main page at StarWars.com until your clicking finger has gone numb.

    Whoah, SGD120.... I'm afraid I have to agree with you, Boba. I can watch AOTC in the cinemas ten times and still have enough money to buy dye for the gazillion miles of chiffon I want to dye...
