Power of advertising

I was out with my friends to have Chicken Rice for lunch. After eating, we sat around and lepak relax before we head back to the office. Suddenly a China girl approached our table and waved her hands. She was holding one stack of pirated DVD and she gave my guy friend a "friendly smile". I can feel a lil electric being passed across. Suddenly my friend's 3 year old son told shouted ....


TAI JOR LA!!!


Everyone (including the China girl) turned and looked at the little rascal and he gave the cheekiest smile ever! Haiyoh!

And the China girl slowly put her hands down and walked away.

And my guy friend said.. "eh i really want to buy wan la. This one Astro On Demand don't have one. This one is Taiwan serial movie la.."

Too bad. She left edi. The power of advertising...even a 3 yr old kid can memorize the ad.


Tai jor la means sudah tengok la...

Saturday...I know you coming edi....I'm so happy cos it's only another 26 hours only to see you Saturday...
