We saw so many MAKE articles on Surplus/Electronics paradises in the US, I thought I’d contrast it a bit by showing what Electronics shopping looks like in South East Asia. (“Part Mining” is meant literally here!). Maybe the most impressive diy electronics paradise in Singapore is a tiny, well hidden shop in People’s Park Center, 101 Upper Cross Street, Suite #03-06, near the Financial district and in walking distance of the tourist hubs like Funan Center and Clarke Quay. Rather small in size, I am perfectly confident to say that not one other shop in the world has reached this packing density.
