DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU HAVE READ?
Today is April’s Fool day. I do not believe there is such thing as MerlionEcho, especially the product page. And if you click on to the celebrities testimonial, you only get Chen Tian Wen’s “Unbelievable” song.
However, in the Press Release, AWS (Amazon Web Service) Summit is real. If you read the content, iPrice, which produce the Press Release, is the official affiliate Amazon partner. Nothing from Amazon.
There was news that Amazon might arrive in Singapore in Q1 2017. However, this Press Release is by iPrice, an online price comparison portal that redirect you to other online sites. And get this, it says the same thing on Malaysia website (iprice.my)
Do you still believe it? I search the web for authencity of this news and no mainstream media is reporting it. If you still believe, go on.. Kthxbye.
