Call it spur of the moment shopping. I was in KL in September 2006 and wanted a proper point and shoot digicam but did not have that much money, cash or credit to spare.
So I ended up purchasing the Nikon Coolpix L3 digicam at a photo shop in Midvalley KL, cost RM700+, with a few freebies thrown in, including an umbrella and extra batteries.
Blame it on my “countryman” from Sandakan, or so he claimed.
Later on, when I came back to Sabah, the user reviews I found online were mostly negative
