Apparently, I missed the chance to purchase a Swift at $0.23 only. Nope, there’s no gimmick here. Yes, it’s only $0.23; and no, there’s no lucky draw – you don’t have to buy any charity tickets, you don’t have to sit in for some talk that lasts 3 hours when it’s only supposed to be 15 to 30 minutes, and no, you don’t have to go anywhere nor switch off your handphone when you go collect your car. It’s true. It’s real. It’s… tatarah! *tada!*

Tatarah - $0.23 for Swift

Yes, apparently a Mr Wee Kim Boon successfully bidded a Swift 1.5L for a unique bid of $0.23. If you are not familiar with Tatarah, they used to have auctions where the winner is the person who provided the lowest unique bid. However, for there is an admin fee of $1 for your bid, and I’m not sure if each person is limited to only 1 bid.

However, for some reason, they have changed the model to the unique highest bid model such that the bidder with the unique highest bid gets the stuff. It’s very much like the eBay and Y!auctions model except that if you have a tie at the top bid, then the item supposedly goes to the next lower bid that has no tie.

Frankly, I have no idea how they are going to cover their cost, especially when one of the next item to bid for is a Mercedes Benz C200 Kompressor! At $140,000 and with the change in the bidding model, I think it’s a waste of my time to even try to bid. Like what one of my friends said, it’s very much like 4D, except that they are collecting admin fees from you instead of bets. Moreover, you still have to pay for what you bid if you win at the end of the day. Heh.
