If I search hard, I might have its brochure somewhere.
Amazing times when IPC was the multimedia PC to get.
Do scan it for us to see...i didn't keep the brochure (and now regretting it).

IPC was a quite a big local brand then... unfortunately my Genie's Conner disk kept dying due to overheating.

Wah. Finally get to see how krado looked like. Remember he was the ultimate amd fan boy back then...

Kimage had their hairdressing school at funan. Wash+cut only 6 bucks. Now it's at marina square.

For me my best memories was during those bf2 competitions back in the day, at the funan atrium. Still rmb back then all the sls shops like cyber mind and fuwell were doing so well they expanded to funan..

only started going to Funan in 2013, cause of the biggest Challenger.

1) Challenger - big and bought lots of things from there - thumb drive, laptop stand-cooler, wireless mouse/keyboard. Sometimes just like to wander there in Sat afternoon.
2) The big stationary shop with some special products like the durable Japanese File.
3) Second Floor sports shop for Nalgene bottles.
4) Bought my dell monitor from courts last year !

5) MACDONALD ! after the above is done - must eat lunch there.

Bought the first PC in my life in 1995 there and the brand was IPC.
Cost me a 3 grand plus with a Win 95 version a that kept crashing down.
Bought a modem along with it and the ISP then was Pacific Internet and using the dial up method. Quite thrill when I first heard the modem dialing and got connected to the early days of the Internet.

Bought my first printer @ South Asia Ptd Ltd there, some Canon portable printer which looked like a laptop. IIRC, my first PC, a Datamini 486DX 33Mhz also from there, a whopping 3K+. PC table from Challenger on top floor.

When first started working around Cityhall area, always hang out at Funan during lunch, rem people cheong Ninja Gaiden on the 1st Xbox there!

Now is buy some camera accessories in Funan.
