    This is a very colourful way how they adverstise the going -on at the hotels, etc.
    like food fair, food festivals, some performances etc

    In Malaysia they have it in a fabric banner, or a solid large board with neon lights. Here it is really long and huge, and ultra colourful!!!

    Man with lots of latest imported magazines

    We were sitting around waiting for our bowls of bamie at the Hock Sing shop, and then all of a sudden a man came around our table, carrying lots of imported magazines and he started displaying it in front of us. we just stared blank at the magazines, dared not touch them, and look at the poor bloke still carrying loads of other magazines. For me, there was fashion magazines - becos I am a gal, and for our client, who has smart with Rolexes etc, he had the Fortune Magazine laid out!!!

    The man then just left us with all the magazines, and went on to the next table with the same act!!! After that he came back to our table and collected all our magazines except those that were selected by our client...sure enough the Fortune magazine was sold - he seemed to know what you want to read - hehehe!!!
