10 Things to Buy from SAF E-mart if You’ve Too Much Credits

Guys. Guys. Come on, guys, admit it: when it comes to the SAF eMart, what do you usually buy? Arc of fire sticks? Range card? Garters?

And after that? Well, shoes, towels and those things that our girlfriends or wives need at home.

Do you know that you can apparently shop online as well? So to save you the trouble (because we guys spend just so little time shopping and more time drinking with our kakis), here’re the stuff you’ve got to buy from the eMart when you’ve got too much credits.

And ladies, you should get the drift.

Swimming Trunks

A pair of swimming trunks in the eMart is only at $4.27 if you buy it offline, and $3.89 if you buy it online. Oh, and it isn’t those sexy triangle ones, but those that cover much of your skin. I don’t know about you, but a pair of swimming trunks at less than $4.00 is almost impossible to find nowadays!

PT Shoes

Need I elaborate more? With the new designs coming soon, it is a must-buy. No matter what it is, make sure you’ve got at least $50 in your account before going to an eMart, because it’s a sin not to have collected all the designs, from the New Balance ones to the Adidas ones.

And if any ladies are wondering whether it really costs less than $50…yeah, I ain’t bluffing. The current Adidas design is at $39.49 offline and $35.93 online. You’re welcome.

Dress Shoes (No. 3 Shoes)

If you just want a pair of durable shoes for you to wear to the office daily, this is the best one for you. I’ve personally bought a pair and it lasted so long, it isn’t Buy And Throw Away quality. But do note that the design is a little…old-fashioned, to say the least.

White Socks

I won’t recommend the thick green shoes, nor the black socks, but the white socks, primarily for PT, are BFF with any sports shoes. Comfortable, lightweight and cheap, this is a must-have in your wardrobe. Best of all? It looks so much like other socks, no one would have known that you’ve got it in your friendly eMart store.


Lest you’re thinking that given the low price of $1.84 offline and $1.67 online, it is those old-school mercury types, think again. It’s a digital version, and since we all would definitely need one at home, why not just get it from the eMart? Moreover, where in the heck can you find a digital thermometer that costs less than $2? Qoo10 not included, of course.

Day Bag

Okay, I’ve initially thought that this is called a “driver’s bag” until I saw it in eMart online. At $34.31 offline and $31.22 online, it might seem a little pricy but here’s the thing: all bags in SAF are almost indestructible. After all, it’s meant to be carried to battle (well, not sure if this is, though…), so you can expect it to be highly durable.


Having used so many flashlights in my life, the SAF one is definitely the best so far. It looks good, is strong and can even show different colours; get a few of them and you can create a disco at night. While the price of $10.59 (both online and offline) might turn you off, you might want to think of this scenario: during a blackout, would you like to knock your head just because you want to save a few dollars?

Insect Repellent

Ask anyone who has used this and they’ll have the same response: “SAF insect repellent, best lah!” Known to be a lifesaver for NSFs (because NSmen usually bring…something that smells good), it can repel not just mosquitoes, but any insects, be it crawling or flying, like a boss.

Just remember to follow the instructions, if not the colours of the clothes will also repel.

Green Towel

This isn’t just a towel: it’s something that absorb water so well, no one, absolutely no one, would bother to bring any other towels to camp. Its popularity is already a testimonial—but here’s something even better: it costs only $6.06 offline and $5.51 online.

Black Gloves (half finger)

If you’re a gym rat, you’ll know that gloves are your best friend. Instead of using a Nike or Adidas one, why not go with an army one? It’s so comfortable that we all have worn it for days without even feeling them on our hand.

And you can look like Captain Yoo from Descendants of the Sun, too.

Since you’re here, why not watch a video about a guy who lodged a Police report here in Singapore because he was friendzoned? Seriously. Here, watch it and do remember to share it (and also subscribe to Goody Feed YouTube channel)!
