Casio Celebrates NDP2017!Written by Alvin Wong
With a special Japanese twist!
We all know a good deal when we see one, and this is a GREAT deal. To celebrate Singapore’s 52nd birthday, Casio is offering fukubukuro bags – traditional Japanese mystery gift bags filled with a variety of items that are usually worth more than what you pay for.
Although each Casio fukubukuro costs S$188 (‘fuku’ means ‘good fortune’, and ‘bukuro’ means bag in Japanese), the actual value of a bag ranges from S$353 to S$655. Inside each bag are a range of items that include a G-Shock GA-710 watch, G-Shock t-shirt, cavas tote bag, tumbler, and if you are lucky, a Casio FR10 camera. The bags are available at G-Factory stores from 21 July 2017.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
