had an interesting evening yesterday night… went out for dinner with my friends at tampines mall (yes i stay in the west and my friends are in the east… tt makes for loads of travelling and interesting things to see mah…)

anyway… after dinner we went back to TM for a short bout of ‘shopping’… being 9.30pm… all the stores were eager to close and shut their doors for the night (i know how they feel… seeing all the customers still loitering around in their stores ‘just get out of hereeeeee!!!!!’) so we decided to pop by NTUC just like in aussie…

FYI: we used to shop at the supermarkets after the stores closed ard 5pm so tt inculcated a ‘grocery-shopping’ gene in us… favourites were woolworths and coles ;P walking up and down aisles of groceries are fun…

coz one of my friends have been coughing since the weekend… he decided to take a look at the selections of cough lozenges… which NTUC had a good variety of… but i was trying not to fall asleep amongst the cans of stuff in the middle of the wide wide aisle… anyway… the other friend suddenly noticed this realllllly ‘funky’ cough lozenges… check out the packaging!

do you have a sore throat? do you have a sore throat?

aiyoh…………. this definitely made my day… ahhahaha what’s wif the guy’s face on the front.. and the green/turquoise stripes across the entire packaging… and and the waterfall at the back… -_-”" which made me wonder who would buy this brand and why and how in the world were they attracted to it in the first place? ‘ooo this looks funky and it uses traditional chinese stuff so perhaps it’s good for my throat!’ perhaps NTUC had this brand since its beginnings so long ago… it’s placed on the uppermost shelf so unless u tilt ur head up and look.. u would definitely miss it…

i get a headache juz looking at the psychedelic stripes… lol i’m sure there’re more of such funky packaged products out there in the market… i shall endeavour to dig out more the next time i pop by NTUC… ahahah…
