Yesterday Uniqlo launches its first branch in Malaysia at Fahrenheit 88. The launching ceremony was at 11AM. But the crowd was already very huge at 9AM in the morning.
Why is the crowd so huge? Well the first 500 customers in line at the grand opening have a chance to win an all expense paid trip to Tokyo.
And by looking at the crowd in front of the Uniqlo shop… You’d think that you have a chance to be the lucky guy in one of the 500 first customers. Well, think again because you won’t be able to get into the shop if you’re going to just wait here. You need to line up from the inside of the mall!
To get into the mall… You need to squeeze yourself in! And the line doesn’t start from here…
With so many people… Its really hard to tell where does the line starts from. But seriously I don’t understand why is there so many auntie on the line..
A picture of the crowd I’ve taken on the 2nd floor. People Mountain People Sea isn’t it? (Translate it into cantonese lol)
There were also alot of people who had given up. I have tons of friends sms-ing me saying that they have given up to queue.
After 2-3 hours of queuing up and talking alot of rubbish with my fellow friends. This is what we got from Uniqlo…
And if your purchase in a single receipt is more than RM200, you’ll get a FREE tote bag.
Anyway I took a candid picture of the Uniqlo Japanese dudes… They were talking quite loud in Japanese and I couldn’t understand what they are saying.. But I do think that they are happy that the business is going very good…
Personal Thoughts –
1 – I really don’t understand why so many auntie queue up… Some of them don’t even know why are they queuing up… They chat with each other like this…
Auntie 1 – Eh why we queue up ah?
Auntie 2 – I don’t know leh… Big discount gua… I see so many ppl queue up~ So I queue up also lorhh…
2 – Most of the clothing found in Uniqlo is damn thick and the clothing material is very ‘HOT’… We live in Malaysia and we always complain how hot the sun is… If you’re going to dress up like a Japanese guy/girl and go jalan-jalan at Bukit Bintang with full Uniqlo clothing from top to toe… I bet you’ll get a heat stroke from less than 10 minutes. They’re famous for their HEATTECH technology… But I don’t find it useful in Malaysia.. Well maybe they need to invent a new technology called COLDTECH
3 – Kinda overrated?
Special Thanks To – Leanne coz she say I look young =P~ Belanja you makan next time.
