    I was at Queensway shopping centre yesterday and bought a Karakal overgrip, in addition to a couple of replacement grips. Some shop on the 2nd floor - cannot recall the name - but I know that shop did not carry Karakal grips in May. It is located a bit in the back, you can't see that shop from the stairs/escalators. They had quite many different Karakal grips (duo, love, multi, kumfy etc - see here: http://www.karakal.com/Badminton-Grips.html).

    Not really silly lah ...... :D

    You just have to overlap the grip as you wrap upwards ..... the top tacky layer will kind of 'grip' the bottom layer that's overlapping it,
    and the bottom layer of the overgrip will also 'grip' over the original grip below as well.

    Pulling the grip tight slightly as you wrap will also help give you a snug and tight fit. :)
