Going Travelling!!!! Part 2 Shop Shop Singapore!

I'm going on a big trip with my Wife and two Pentax Cameras (K7+Kx)-Singapore-London-LA-San Francisco

As I'm going to Singpore first can anyone recommend a nice Pentax Friendly Camera Shop (Orchard Rd?) - Last time I went to Singapore the best electronic deals to be found were haggling in Lucky Plaza (At least thats what I think it was called)
My worry is that Pentax Mount Lenses will be few and far between.

BTW I'm looking for Primes DA40, Sigma 30 1.4, Maybe a 35mm, DA 70, Maybe even a 31ltd if the price is right

Or is it just better off getting on internet before I leave? (Mid May)

Don't forget to get your 7% tax rebate at the airport. And there is a form for the retailer to fill up when you make your purchase to be eligible if I am not mistaken, though don't quote me on that. Do email them before you leave to check on stock. I suppose they could order the lens in from the distributor if you give them enough notice. The best prices though, are to be had in USA, hands down. Just order and ship it to your hotel.

Edit: Not sure if they have email, but they do have a facebook page. PM them on facebook. Though I am not sure how responsive they are.

Leave on Sunday! Assess my travel kit!

Woo hoo, leave on Sunday!
Here's my gear for the trip.

Kx, K7

Sigma 17-70 (2.8-4.5)
Pentax DAL 55-300
Pentax FA 31 1.8 ltd

72mm Polarising Filter, Gorilarpod, Black Rapid R5 and an old Sony Discman shoulder bag I can fit two long lenses in. Spare batteries and cards (all can fit in Black Rapid)
Chargers and 10.1" ASUS Netbook with 160gb HDD (all use same power cord )

What ya reckon? Do I have all bases covered?

Seeing as I bought the FA 31 just now don't really need any major gear but will probably grab a larger SD card for video and another 8GB card as my replacement eye-fi card hasn't turned up yet
I would really like to grab a copy of Lightroom 3 but may wait till I get to the states for that. Also keen on a Metz 44 if at a good price
