Showflat Model In Da Hu

They were showcasing a new property development at the shopping center outside my estate and there is the model of the property on display.

Ignore the sign about the dangers of electricity as it is not what I want to talk about today.

I was suprised at the height of the model. The "street level" was slightly above my knees.

Big mistake.

To simulate the environment, they have little people walking around the estate and little matchbox cars.

Matchbox cars at knee level.


It means that the cars are within reach of children's hands.

So the folks who did the model probably thought about the children accessibility. However, it was obvious that they did not think the whole way through.

They thought they were pretty darn smart by gluing the car down but alas they underestimate the mega prying strength of a determined child.

The result? You get a whole street of black skateboards. Haha.

That was a good anecdote, hehe:) i wonder if the marketing budget has enough for replacement cars:P or must they go back to the model-maker...

Arrenn: Replacing the cars only means, more will get ripped off.

I think the marketers have decided to stick to the black skateboard theme coz it's been two weeks already and well, it's still black skateboards all around.
