J Card Member Day at Jusco 1-Utama

Today is ABC Wednesday Round 5
S is for
...... Sensational Sale

Yesterday and today was J Card Member Day for Jusco Bandar Utama department store. It is a special day for J-Card members only to Shop,Shop, Shop at the Sensational, Sizzling Sale. Prices are slashed down by as much as 80%!
This section is for guys. There are T-shirts, slacks, track suits, luggage bags and sports wear on sale.

Ladies view this sale seriously. Some drop by during lunch time. There are even some who take leave from work to come here. This is serious business. Kids have to tag along, grandma, grandpa and even the maid servant's help is needed today. Sisters are most welcome to join. Sales people anticipate a huge crowd, so they even take down orders if you come a day earlier before the sale to try out and select the clothes and underwear in advance. On sale day, you just have to go and pay before you collect the goods. There are so many people that you may find it suffocating and some dear souls may suffer some fainting spells eventhouth soothing songs are played via the stereo PA system.

After a long day of shopping and bargain hunting, now is the time to redeem your vouchers. You get a RM 5.00 voucher for every RM 100.00 you spent on supermarket items and RM 10.00 for other items. Just look at the long queue. But don't worry, the security staff are on hand to help maintain order. So shouting matches, screaming, pushing and shoving were avoided and everything went smoothly.

After seeing all these scenes, I bet you can understand why The Rainforest of 1-Utama is such a welcomed relieve for the tired body, mind and soul. How you wished you could get home fast to have a good, invigorating soak or perhaps a cool refreshing shower.

Look! There is even an ambulance waiting here to take care of any emergencies. Either you go home or to the hospital! Ha Ha!

Don't worry if you bought the wrong items or change your mind within 7 days. You can exchange the goods provided you keep the receipts. That's what I call great after 'sales service'.

I used to get very excited whenever I see the word SALE in a shop window. I must get inside to check it out, otherwise I will suffer from severe withdrawer symptoms if I didn't get my 'fix' . Now, I shudder, shiver and sometimes break out in cold sweat when I see such a scene. I'd rather go home to play a game of scrabble and have some tea and scones before I smoke some spare ribs and make seafood spaghetti for dinner. Or should I season some meat to make sizzling steak to go with Scandinavian chowder soup instead? Maybe I'll go and buy some salmon sashimi and sushi.

Today's post is an entry in ABC Wednesday Round 5, the meme initiated by Denise Nesbitt. For more information and photos, please log on to this site.
