Bib collection is at Marina Float at Marina Bay. There are many new building and architecture around the bay. As most Singaporean runners has collected their bib, therefore the collection was very smooth. Just feel disappointed with the exhibition, only handful of sponsors participated. Not many items displayed at the Asics booth too and only gave 15% discount. Latest products are shown at Marina Square shopping centre. Most of the goodies received are vouchers.
