Closed oledi...

Last evening, I had planned to end the night by relaxing over a cup of coffee at Starbucks after gym. I was dreaming of my frappucino, and set it as a motivation for extra workout on the cardio routine... But sadly, our neighborhood Starbucks decided to have an early night. It was closed by the time we reached there, at 12 midnight...

So, disappointed, we went to Leo's instead, a gelato outlet just behind Starbucks. But they too, were closing for the night! Hey, why was Taipan so dead last night? Did something big robbed Taipan of its crowd?

Coffee Bean was also closing early, but that's ok because I am not a Coffee Bean person...

Finally, we ended the night at McD's. well, at least I get to spend some quality time yakking with En Arip. Since we got home, we had been busy with our respective chores...

Anyway, another incident happened yesterday. I went to an art supplieds shop after work to get some water color. Want to know what the apek kedai (shop owner) said?

"This one is expensive one you know?"

I was just asking the price. What exactly did he mean by that?

- To suggest that I do not look like a potential customer?

- Or to boast that he only sells expensive stuff?

Seriously, I had no idea why he said that!

I replied to him,

"I asked you the price, not youor opinion whether it is expenssive or cheap. Who are you to decide for me that it is expensive or cheap?"

He gave me a sheepish look and said,

"This one is RM45 per tube".
Now, didn't that sound like a better, logical and relevant answer?

I said to him,

"Only RM45?! That's NOT expensive!" *Ambik ko!

And I added,
"The quality must be bad..." *Ambik ko lagi!

En Arip was so surprised when I told him about this incident. He said he had the same experience, too yesterday. He was on the phone asking for the selling price for a Digital Beta tape on behalf of his friend. His supplier said, "This type, very expensive one la..."

Hello??!!??? What happened to these people? Is this a new marketing strategy??? Are they trying to underestimate their customers' affordability? That customers will buy these "expensive" goods to uphold their dignity?
