Last year’s Christmas, I bought hubby a set of perfume. The Sales Assistant at the Hugo counter was so helpful and friendly, she slipped in two free gifts into our purchase. It made me beamed with gladness and promised myself to go back there once I decided to purchase that Flora by Gucci she showed to me.
I returned back four months later for that Flora by Gucci.
The SA was also very friendly although a different person. Nonchalantly I blurted out, “Apa free gift kau boleh bagi saya?”
“Oh adaaaa…mini perfume?”
“Mini perfume saja?” I replied in somewhat unimpressed tone. He sensed it perhaps.
“Ada juga body lotion. Kau mau?”
“Oh great! Yes please,” I replied in obviously joyful tone.
It was a very brief transaction but I was satisfied. A 50ml body lotion of the same brand? The SA even tipped in a Flora Magnolia sample vile for me. How nice of him!
The next day, I showed the body lotion to my colleagues. One of them, upon hearing my story responded.
“Only in Malaysia.”
And she was referring to the same video clip made by Jinnyboytv.com in collaboration with Hitz.fm.
True to the core!
When I watched this before, I giggled cos apart from the hand gesture and the calling everyone a boss, auntie and uncle part, I didn’t realize I was one of them in the video when I was at the perfume counter. The question on free gift felt so natural, it just came out from my mouth like that’s a routine when purchasing things.
Spot on man!
I’m a certified true Malaysian indeed.
Till next post!
