TheGeekyBeng had intend to troll Nokia Singapore during the End May Event at MSFT at One Marina Boulevard. Especially when the whole #GreenDuck invite was sent to us. I am afterall, still a Lumia lover.

Frankly speaking, the Nokia X family devices are, how should i put it nicely, major-atrocity out-of-the-box.  I first encountered the Nokia X in Thailand when I was having my usual monthly pilgrimage to my retirement homeland in early May, took a shot of it and shared it on my Facebook with my friends.  And when Nokia Singapore invited me to experience the XL for myself sometime in the last week of May, I had actually prepared to troll them with my RedMi and Sony Xperia Z2 that night. Opps! Sorry Nokia Singapore!

How we know it is awesome?

TGB was window-shopping at IMM yesterday,  when he stroll into Coach Men’s Outlet Store and saw a bag that he have been putting off to buy.   An equally eagle-eyes Sales assistant caught a glimpse of the outstanding Nokia XL in TGB’s possession.   What was supposed to be a window-shopping trip left TGB with a 1.2k Coach Bag at 50% + 30% discount and a bunch of Coach sales assistants that is sold at the awesomeness of the Nokia XL.


Anyway,  impromptu lunches on a terrific Tues is always very rewarding.   And Coach IMM guys,  I will be back!
