The Story

I was in Petaling Street today accompany-ing Gary, a frend who came all the way from Canada to visits me. We walk pass lotsa stall selling handbags and leather goods and being a married man obviously he would like to buy something for his wife before he leave KL. I took him to stall operate by Limkia, a childhood frend of mine.

Petaling Street a.k.a. Chee Cheong Kai

In the stall :

Gary : Mr. Lim, how much is this handbag ? *Gary pointing at one of the many LV handbag*

Limkia : You my brader's frend I give you cheap cheap! this one errr ..... RM50 la!

Gary : Holy shit! that bloody cheap!!

Me : What do you think ? Its not real you idiot! its imitation!

Gary : It looks real enuff to me, I doubt my wife could tell the different. It even come with the tag and nice packaging!

Limkia : Yarr, my handbag all grade A! same quality as the real one! this price i give you very cheap alredi, becoz you my brader bring here I cheap cheap give lu

Me : Well if you think its a good buy then go ahead, its your money.

Gary : Hmm ... what if I am caught by the custom when I am entering Canada and they know this is imitation handbag ? Would I be in trouble ?

Limkia : Aiyaaa no lar no lar!!! we all new generation businessman got read BLOG wan! We can COPY exactly the same as the original as long as we put LINK to credit the original DESIGNER then ok liow! NEH!! you see the bottom there got the LINK to Louis Vuitton Handbag company anot ? We embossed the link www.louisvuitton.com there laaa!!!
