I was window shopping at Sunway Pyramid last night. I think the last time I’ve been there was a few years ago. I didn’t even know they have a new building now.
The thing that amazed me the most about this Sunway Pyramid shopping mall is their car parking system. Wow! I didn’t know we have such intelligent car parking systems in Malaysia. Each parking lot has a censor above it to detect if a vehicle is parked in it. A lamp above the lot will turn green if the parking lot is vacant and red if it is taken.
Now, I don’t want to sound like an idiot. My line of work is developing computer systems. Therefore, I am very aware that such a system is implementable. In fact, a few years back on the Nescafe Kick-Start programme, I remember one contestant had this same idea.
The reason why I was amazed isn’t because such a car parking system exists in Malaysia. It was simply because there is a company who is willing to invest money to prevent their customers from going berserk from hunting for a parking lot.
Anyway, my main blogging point isn’t Sunway Pyramid’s car parking system but what I saw while window shopping there. As always, when you are shopping with a group of girls, any shops with sales or discount signs will be a ‘stop’.
As they were happily doing their thing, I saw the sign the shop had in their window and couldn’t hold my laughter and just had to take some photos of it. I didn’t have my Nikon D40x with me so I borrowed my gf’s camera phone to take a snapshot of it. I don’t have Bluetooth or infrared dongle with me so I couldn’t transfer the photos over. Arggh…whatever.
It seems like the shop was having an “All things must go!” sale. The sign shows that the sale will last for only 9 more days. I guess they were closing shop soon. Either that or it was just a sale gimmick.
No, I wasn’t laughing at them. I was definitely not laughing at them because they might be closing shop soon. I was thinking — If DS Anwar Ibrahim’s 16th September plan is really on track (give or take a few days or weeks), that means BN will be “closing shop” real soon.
If BN will be closing shop soon, are they having any cheap sales?
