Yeah, but like they said not everything is always negative as it seems. If i just judge him quickly because how they react i would have went back straight and tell myself haha screw him for not getting any tips. I actually thanked him afterward and had a chat, admitting to him you know some actually kept it because they want money, that's why i was wondering and all that, and he said yeah he knows that too but he's not really into that. He claimed to collect hw including greenies too, but i can't verify that cause common sense no one would pass on that Super, but anyway I kept in touch with him though i wasn't responsible every round hoardings after that (stick it to first come first serve basis), and there's one time many months later he actually sms'ed me telling he just did stock count and found xxx (old thunt) in the store presumably hidden by previous staff he'll just put em on peg i could come and grab it.

Alrite here's another story i just remembered happened 2 years back (the golden era of undercover's treasure hunts reign), that period i could gamble hitting just anywhere without any pointers whatsoever, just relying on hunch. So i tried this place called South City Plaza near Mines that time, still worth it cause besides Giant below Parkson also was still there (and i actually scored few hunts there before). Well no luck that day both are still stuck with same stock since my last trip months earlier, damn exhausted that time so i grabbed two ice cream upon exiting Giant, sat somewhere and ate it like nobody's business. This Malay dude somewhere at the other side kept staring at me, i felt something's not right but screw it i just continue eating the ice creams and left.

On my way back home, still trying to figure out what's up with the guy just now and.. dammit! it's bulan Ramadhan la and undercover with selambaness forgotten he too was fasting that day!


Moral of the story - Not advised to go huntin' if malas bangun sahur.

(btw puasa tak batal kalau tak sengaja lol)

I had almost a familiar story.
Last year, during Bulan Ramadhan, I was hunting somewhere in Puchong area near my sister's house. I remembered it was a Saturday morning, I started hunting at about 10am and around 11am I was hungry because I didn't have breakfast, so I decided to stop at a some Mamak restaurant.
As some of you have seen me, I looked like Malay, dark skinned but I am pure chinese lah.
So, as I walked in, suddenly one of the bangla workers said to me... "Mali, Mali! Jangan takut... belakang ada tempat, mali masuk!"
I was thinking what the hell is he trying to tell me but out of curiosity, I quietly just follows him to the back of the restaurant and there's a room. Then he said..."Masuk sini, TaKpah punya boleh makan dalam"
When he opens the door of the room, there was like THREE other malay dudes in there EATING nasi lemak and teh tarik.
It's a SPECIAL HIDDEN ROOM for curi makan!
One of the guys said to me "Masuk la brader, makan la...tak puasa hari ne?"
I almost wanted to burst out laughing but I turned to the Bangla worker and says... "TaKpah! I BERANI! I MAKAN LUAR!"
Then the bangla looked at me with a shock and said "wah you manyak berani la.." then I ordered my maggi goreng.
The Bangla thought I am malay kekeke What a FaceWhat a Face

#7 'Hotwheels Face'

Location - Tujuh Sebelas
Time - One of 7E Promos

*Enters outlet*
*The cashier dude stares, and disappeared shortly*
"Huh?"

*..returns with box full of restocked cars*
"How do you.."
"Muka Hotwheels. I remember."

#8 Susah Senang Kita Bersama

Location - On the road
Time - Recently

"Artt my car ada masalah teknikal sikit, driver power window doesn't work"
"Oh, ye ke"
"Haha yeah, alright let's go"

(Upon reaching the toll plaza)
"Errr.. Artt, my side door also not working, so..."
*Artt shows his manhood by getting out of passenger side and walks towards the cashier to pay the toll*

#9 Dude, Where's My Car (key)?

Location - Where you buy groceries and get some Hotwheels
Time - Very recently

*Exits the store and walks towards my car*
"Wait, where the hell is my car key?"
*Runs back to the store*
"Sorry don't see any car key here" (cashier)
"Let me try and search for it" (toy section kakak)
*Fails to find anything, called few more kakaks for 'hunting' session.
(Dammit i'm supposed to come here to for some treasure huntin' and now i'm hunting for my own car key)

*Couldn't find anything still*
*Went back and forth store and car park, until another kakak passed by...*
"Are you looking for car key? Someone sent it to customer service"
"Sigh, thanks." (She could have make an announcement or at least informed the section where it's found)

*Walks to customer service...*
"Hah? Kunci? Takda pun" "Mungkin yang pegang kunci tu dah balik kot?"

"Aaaarghhhhhh!!!!"

INI SAYA PUNYA

Location - Heading towards Banting
Time - When everyone's sleepin'

*Enters 7E and found at half empty Bone Shaker case on the floor*

The 7e dude welcomed me to go through remaining of the case and he revealed something surprising..
"Saya pun collect Hotwheels jugak. Sorry lah model best semua dah reserve untuk sendiri"
"Oh ye ke. Ah takpa no prob.."
*Saw reg Bone Shaker inside that case still* "Huh?"
"Abang dah simpan banyak keta lain yang 'hijau' ni takkan abang tak minat?"
"Keta hijau? Oh itu pun saya ada ambil!"

What! Oh no.. here's 1 reg here, another could be..
"Abang, boleh tak i saja nak tengok kereta-kereta lain abang dah pilih"
"Oh ada lagi kat sini kejap ye nanti saya ambik.."

He brought out not one but 2 HW filled plastics, complete with note written on it "INI SAYA PUNYA".
"Nak tengok, tengok lah"
He helped untied the plastic, went through it again and showed to me his not one, but two green cars...

..Green Nerve Hammer and Fast Gassin

Here's my story on my visit to 7E nerby my house on saturday. Inside the store i noticed that they haven't display the hw as the promotion havent started yet. So i went to the counter to ask the staff..

me : bro, hw ni ada stok baru tak? kat display sana tu stok lama......
staff: ada, baru sampai, tapi tak boleh display sekarang, manager tak bagi..
me : tapi saya masih boleh beli dengan harga sekarang kan? (RM6.50)
staff: nanti, saya tanya manager dulu..

off he went into the store and a moment later the manager came out asking me what i want..
me: 7E promo ni ada hw stok baru tak?
manager: Tunggu sini, saya bawak keluar dari store..

In my mind, least expected he will bring new case out but he's holding ONE carded ferrari 430 challenger..
manager: is this you want?
me: oh ini dah beli...(answer politely)

and he went back to the store room, i'm also following him but i just stand outside the door looking at him ransacking the hw case .In my mind, thinking why he's choosing and didn't took the case out for me to have a look.
manager: ini mau? (showing chevy panel)
me: itu pun dah beli...
manager: ini (pick up another after some choosing, showing corvette stingray concept)
me: ini pun dah beli..
me: ok lah, saya rasa hampir semua hw dalam kotak tu saya dah tengok kat tempat lain. Tak payah tunjuk lagi, thank you.(sensing that he's already booked some hw and not intend to sell or show me but judging from the case i know it's Fire Eater case and i know he's hiding something!)

later in the night, my friend called me that someone scores $uper Fire Eater at this same outlet and least expected i've scores it. All i can say i've been there earlier but WTH!, luck is not on my side!

my experience at a specific 7-11 outlet. it was last Sunday afternoon. I went there asking for new stock and the staff approached me politely and showed me the new box. after i picked few models, i headed to the counter for payment, the staff told me to come back tomorrow (Mon). she advised me that promo price only starts tomorrow and she is willing to reserve for me. it was a good offer in fact but i just paid, thanked her and chow.
i had had few past experience in the promise of reservation but finally the items were sold, so, I won't try that again.

daniel, it is my style, "cash and carry", hahaha...
it will b a great disappointment if certain customer willing to pay "more" to get the reserved units and the staffs are engage in "such" activity.
