just reached skudai. had gone to kl for mr nasrul hadi’s conference, and of course saya menyibuk di sisi beliau untuk mendapatkan free hotel food…*no no..niat saya murni..ehem…untuk mengelakkan pembaziran makanan*
managed to spend some time with abah and mak at shah alam, they told us *dengan nada berlagak* about their day at MAHA expo which had ended on the last sunday..
walaupun berlagak, abah has another version of story there..
a booth selling a product named D____ Snow had a lot of promoters on that day..the product is actually a skin cream, to be applied on the skin after bath or before sleep. it is made of seaweed and some other natural elements..
the product is good…nevertheless the promoters there had some problems in handling the business and promotion..
while abah was passing by the booth, one of the promoter had smeared the cream on abah’s cheek (kalau kulit abah alergik macam mana?)..then he pulled abah’s hand and explain about the product… abah told us he had struggled to let himself go but the snatch was strong..
at last, half heartedly abah decided to buy *in order to escape from the situation* since there were way too many people around and he got rimas.. one bottle is RM10, he asked for one and gave RM50..
and with sooo0-not-professional manner, the promoter said, “tak ada duit pecah la bang, ambil je la lima lima botol ni”..dan terus bungkus lima botol dalam plastik.. got sick with the crowd, abah just grab the 5 bottles and left…
haihh.. my sister and me were very angin with the promoter after listening to the story..
“kenapa tak lari je time tu?”
“kalau lari dari sorang tu, kawan dia ada kat depan.. nanti kawan dia pulak snatch..ada ramai promoter time tu berbaris..”
“mak mana time tu?”
“dia dah menonong ke depan…”
“mak kenapa tak tolong abah?”, turned to mak..
“mak kena jugak, tapi mak pandai lepaskan diri….mak kena dua kali siap~”, admitting with mak’s skill, we couldn’t say more..
moral here, to all promoters, please do marketing with manner… don’t use force to persuade people.. one important thing, provide money for balance please..
no taktik kotor please..! sian abah saya..*kalau saya yang suka bawa rm50 je jadi mangsa..mungkin lepas kejadian ini saya ditemui minta sedekah di depan pintu masuk MAHA*
