    Hi guys I'll be there at 9.15.

    Unfortunately cellphone is u/s at the moment so won't be able to contact anyone in the morning.

    See you at the Grand Hyatt.

    Just an update for those of you planning to go to the expo tomorrow or sunday:
    - GO EARLY - by noon it was very crowded, and getting more crowded when I left at about 3!
    - BRING A ROLLER BAG - if you can, i used a rolling suitcase and it worked pretty well, until the crowds started to get larger.
    - FREE STUFF - is actually not all that interesting: Fitti gave on free pamper, Philips Avent gave a 4oz bottle, Fisher Price gave a free plastic bib, NUK gave a small sample of stretchmark cream, Suzuran gave a little pack of 6 baby cleaning cottons, Johnson's gave a small sample of bath soap and lotion, etc. etc. most coupons and pamphlets in Chinese.
    - INTERESTING BOOTHS - most all booths were selling items, some with more heavily discounted stuff than others, it seems that: Fisher Price, Nuk, Tommee Tippee, Philips Avent all had good discounts, but they were also the most crowded booths! Eugene club had a big booth, but I didn't think the prices were that discounted there. Nature's Purest, the organic cotton baby stuff from England was giving 15% off their retail prices and they gave you a 10% coupon to use in their store. I am sure diapers were discounted too, but I really wasn't interested in buying diapers in bulk quite yet!

    hope that helps everyone! HAVE FUN!

    I agree with everything Kmalia has said. Just to add: Athough the venue is very big, because of the crowd it was very difficult for me and my friend to go around since we both had our push chairs. Be prepared to face a long queue for tickets and another one to get in. The booths are very small and its impossible to get in most of them with the baby. THERE IS NO PLACE FOR YOU TO CHANGE OR BREASTFEED YOUR BABY. Most booths accept cash or EPS only. For some nice grub (We were quite hungry after all the walking around) you can go to Port Cafe at the 3rd floor for $138 + taxes there is salad buffet + soup + choice of main course + choice of dessert with priceless view of the harbour :)

    My feet are dead after spending all day there!! I also liked that "baby outlet" store - and "little bare feet" had great prices too! I bought a bunch of stuff at tommy tippey!!

    I'm glad I went - will definitely have to go again next year when baby is actually here, then I might have a better idea of what day-to-day stuff I should actually buy, things like diapers etc...

    what time does it open at?

    do the ticket booths open earlier than the event? does it open at 10am? sounds like crazy fun.
