Casino Genting, Jack Bond's Mission Ep 3 [Post Mortem]

Something is missing.

After the mission, I found C902 was missing a piece to make it a perfect weapon, especially when I saw it through the X Ray scan during the mission...


The next day after 2009.01.01 mission code-named Casino Genting, I quickly rushed to Digital Mall at PJ SS14 (it's nearer to my hometown). In and out (the stores), stop and go (the stalls), up and down (the floors), I finally found the missing piece at this store...


All IT Hypermarket, with their 2009 table calendar as free gift along my purchase...


And here's the missing piece...


SAN Disk's high performance (high speed) 8GB M2 Card. It comes with an USB adapter for easy transfer...


Unsealed and slotted it into the Bond weapon, C902...


And now the Bond weapon is upgraded with 8GB external storage to top up the 160MB usable internal memory...


This upgrade costs me 10% of the weapon price, it's RM139, RM1 cheaper than what I surveyed in other IT malls. It's a must as I will be performing another mission soon, the Jackpot mission. Opps, typo, it's the JackPod mission.

One note to other 00x agents out there. If you are getting the card from the same mall, don't be bothered to ask the stalls and shops, just go straight to the highest floor to All IT Hypermarket. I spent almost an hour to ask around, the cheapest was RM180 and up to RM250 for the normal speed 8GB M2 card!! These bloody buggers thought I was an idiot Bond swim like a water fish (水鱼) in the mall for them to chop. This wasn't the first time I encountered such experience in the same mall, and now I certainly concluded that dishonest trading is the culture of this mall except All IT Hypermarket at the highest floor. And I strongly recommend KL Low Yat or the nearer Sunway Pyramid IT section if you want to look for honest gadget deals. From now on, I blacklist this mall, PJ SS14 Digital Mall!

Beside that, you may get a warning from the sales or tech representative of the store, that your Bond weapon may not support 8GB card even online forums in other countries like Europe confirmed the compatibility 'cause of different firmware. To deal with it, just tell the rep, "No worries, Jack Bond tested and certified it." May be you could get further discount by mention Jack Bond. :P
